I have seen the Braves make crazier come backs.
just gotta tip your cap to the cards…..
DOB got your post game question ready?
1. Fredi – why did you call a squeeze?
2. Chipper – do you feel your error changed the game? braves never recovered?
3. Uggla – you batted crap all year and again choke on the big stage with an easy grounder. Will you earn your money next year?
4. Kimbrel – After which error did you start packing your gear, ready to go home?
5. Kimbrel – did you really expect to pitch tonight? you must have known your teammates wuld choke again?
2 years in a row the Cards are going to make the NLDS solely because of the braves. Last year it was the epic collapse, this year it’s 4 unearned runs
team is just too nice
It’s the fans’ fault…ever hear the “fool me once, shame on you…fool me twice, shame on me.” How many times are we going to be fooled as fans? We’re the one’s that keep lining up to go to games and pay money…well maybe not us right now on the blog…I wasn’t stupid enough to pay to go see the annual crapfest, but we are all to blame.
The Braves Management will brag on a great season and put up a little sign in rf.
Amen CTB. Chipper has given us years of great moments. One error will not change that.
Maybe the infield made a pact to make a bunch of errors so that we would focus on their errors and Chipper didn’t get remembered as the cause for the braves loss at 3-2.
Instead they blew it open with poor play so that we figure Chipper’s error wouldn’t matter anyway.
….and you can’t even say the Cardinals beat us. We are beating ourselves.
Uh oh. The tears are coming………
Braves #17 Fan
Fans in here are choking too. Typical reaction when the Braves lose. It reminds me of a discussion we had about those low-class American Idol contestants that would cuss and flip their finger to the camera when eliminated.
Bet the Nats dont like it that they cant play us. Freddi will never win a playoff game so fire his ass. We cant beat this darn LaRussa oh wait he isnt with them . MLB network picked Braves to win because of are bullpen hell we dont need them this game.
Bourn’s last at bat as a Brave?
October 5th, 20127:23 pm
Clearly the Cards are a better team, morons! Are you watching the game?
Didn't Like My Name But I got Through Anyway
You had the lead. You had home field. You had everything in your favor.
You also had a rope around your neck and choked.
good assessment, frump
Ghost of Chipper Jones
Turn out the lights
The party’s over
Three ‘E’s started by CHIPPER. Thanx for the memories dog.
See you in COOPERSTOWN
My heart is breaking. It can’t end like this.
The 1 game where defense and baserunning are so important, we do this.
Georgie!!!! Let’s go guys.
Hammer the Homer
Time for a Brave late tomahawk rally…………………….its choke or bust…………
Atlanta Choke Braves
Too little too late biches!!!!!!!!!
Great job constanza
Time to break up this team.
If Bourn wants, $12M/yr, get it somewhere else.
Keep Freddie, J-Hey, Simmons and Prado. Build around that.
Braves have come back from bigger deficits before, even this year. Remember against the Nats?
@Joe – I’d do the same thing.
runner on 3rd, one out. braves all year have struggled to get this guy home, whats the chances?
I was a little concerned about Constanza PHing. Pleasant surprise.
Costanza triple = Tim Dwight kick return. Sigh.
Seriously, all the homers come on here and all they can say is “dont be a fan then” really? Maybe you all don’t get disappointed because you all are use to failure yourselves. If you all aren’t pissed off, then you have no f’n business being on here calling other people out. So just shut the hell up.
I think I said the final score would be 6-3. Read my earlier post!
Poorly managed game by Fredi. Really bad choke job by the infield. Pathetic offense again. Medlen deserved better.
Braves = Choke.
What has Atlanta done to deserve this?
@btc – Must have hit Submit Comment just a fraction too early.
October 5th, 20127:24 pm
Some body forgot to send Jose the memo that we are supposed to lose
Same ole Braves. The biggest chokers in baseball.
Constanza can fly
Cannot strike out here michael
ur manager iz dumb. he haz no players ready for the game. fire him and I might haz work 4 u!
(the Braves win despite him, not because of him)
Typical of a Braves team to find a way to choke in the playoffs. What’s next . . .
Shocked as a cuckolded preacher? It happens.
Well, that scores a run.
I will take the run
October 5th, 20127:25 pm
The Braves couldn’t just get beat – they had to do it in the most humiliating way possible. A calamity of errors and poor managing all baked into an anemic offense – your 2012 Atlanta Braves.
Almost richbrave time.
Lead down to 3 runs. No problem.
Oh, wait, this isn’t the 1999 Braves.
Gotta move some of these losers in the off season.
3 runs seem like Mt. Everest right now.
October 5th, 20127:26 pm
If we dont score here we are done.
prado is due
Would be nice to get at least one more in this inning. Don’t know if we have a chance without it . . .
@GTPhenom – Glad you could add some substance to the conversation.
………and we’re a good 2-out scoring team.
Base runners. We need base runners. Then the big hit
No, clearly the Cards are not a better team…I will never agree that one game can determine that. Clearly the Cards are leading and haven’t made as many defensive errors…errors that are rare for the Braves. Let’s keep it real.
October 5th, 2012
Poorly managed game by Fredi.
What Gonzalez has to do with the ERROR?…
Okay, Heyward. Do something special.
Only guy who did his job was Medlen. Pitched a clutch game. Defense and offense let him down.
Without the errors, Braves win this game no question.
October 5th, 20127:27 pm
How can Constanza and Prado get hits after the game’s over?
One more baserunner then give Chipper a chance at redemption
Lil' Barry Bailout (Unexpectedly Revised Downward)
The “big bats” are coming up…I bet the Cards are skeered.
Love watching that chop. It has been sorely missed
I don’t think this team is terrible, but I think so far they’ve played a terrible game. This is why I hate this playoff system.

Chipper tying runner in the inning….
fredi has EVERYTHING to do with it because he doesn’t have his players’ heads in the game. wild sailing throws and pitches. skipper’s fault
Train Wreck Bystander
The patient still has a pulse…
Well, maybe Costanza just secured his spot as the lead off guy next year?
Bourn aint 9 million better, that’s for sure.
its time….jhey reaches and then chipper for the tie….
The A Bomb
Dan Uggla. Veteran leader.
This is the ballgame coming up right here fellas with this matchup…………………
Well, the Braves know they’re the better team, but can they better themselves to not shoot their foots off is the real question.
But here comes Wayward. Sigh.
what Game are you watching????
Hate the chant, always have. Who would get the courage up to do away with it?

Wuts wrong out dere? Weez chokin! How cum we don’t know hows ta play baseball??
We stink lak ma sister!
Chipper takes care of himself. He’s gone. Please let Bourn walk. Please move Uggla. Please don’t pick up Mac’s option. Please start over. This team is cursed.
Lord knows I don’t feel good about this but we’ve got a few more outs to work with n
If they go on to lose, I wish they would change everything. Logo. uniforms. Gid rid of the damn chop, they play it more than UT plays Rocky Top anyway. Take it all out to a dumpster, pour gasoline on it, and light a match. Call Chief Nok-a-homa and tell him we’re sorry. Anything.

Braves#17 fan, I’m still watching the game, and still pulling for the team, and just got done saying that without another run this inning I don’t like our chances. Maybe you haven’t been watching the Braves for all that long, but we’ve been through this routine far too often, and it will be really disappointing to see it happen again. Is that better for substance?
October 5th, 20127:30 pm
Bourn should stay.
I thought this was choptober not choketober!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
C’mon JHey, need to come up big here, good job!
Ken Rosenthal @Ken_Rosenthal
LHHs off #STLCards’ Rzepczynski this season: .255/.320/.362. #Braves’ Heyward vs. LHPs: .224/.280/.354.
Heyward! Let’s go Chipper! Redemption!!!!
That throw by Uggla might be the worst throw from a second baseman I have seen…ever.
It looked like he was TRYING to throw it into the stands.
This ones on you chipper sissy
Chipper coming to the plate!!!!
Redeem yourself haus!
October 5th, 20127:31 pm
Chipper is going to be DIALED IN here.
Bank on it.
Chipper’s last at-bat right here. Will he make it count?
Well if this is the last one, might as well….
Now Chipper….come up and choke it.
Typical Fredii/Bobby Managing. BOurne on first with no outs in the third and never attempts to steal becasue they are scared of Molina. Then he orders a safety squeeze with a slow runner on third and the pitcher on deck.
There is no suitable explanation for that squeeze call but typical passive approach to the game. Let Bourne run, if he gets thrown out tip your hat to the catcher! Just brutal.
On you, Chipper….
Come on man…..
We talk about FG messing up, but Mike Matheny has micromanaged himself out of 2 outs this inning.
Time for Chipper to make up for that error! Let’s Go Chip!!!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
