6 Finger 2 tooth Braves Fan
This is what makes Atlanta embarrassing:
Not fans throwing light beer cans on a field after the worst call in history.
Ball was there. Bourn missed it
Bourn, just go away you piece of garbage.
Bourn is impotent.
The A Bomb
Another EPIC FAIL by the Braves.
Bourn had a 3-1 count and wiffed on two fastballs down the middle of the plate! Inning over and perhaps now all hope barring a very unlikely chance MLB officials agree with Fredi’s protest.
Just saw a replay of that throw Uggla made to first….just horrible Dan. And Joe Wimpson can seat on it–unsupportive commentary………Bourn, not hot to trot…but he’ll go trotting out soon.
Lil' Barry Bailout (Unexpectedly Revised Downward)
I’m shocked that the Braves couldn’t get a hit with RISP. Just shocked. They’ve been so clutch all year.
i’m tired of Bourn and his Ks
At $8 a beer, the decision to throw your beer is not taken lightly.
Resign Bourn as soon as this game is over, please!
To a 10 year contract with a team option!!!
Looking forward to Bourn playing for another team next year…dude sucks.
October 5th, 20128:18 pm
Trey = dumbass
ATL SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES!
We Will Get Fooled Again
Let someone else overpay for Bourn. Overrated bum.
I’m pulling for lightening in the 9th
Michael Bourne can take his strike out ass out of town to at the end of the year. Bye!!!!!
Bye Bourn. You have struck out the last time for the Braves you SOB.
Did anyone really think they were going to do anything there? They are the kings of choking for a reason, and Bourn just showed why.
Looks like Chipper gets to make the final out
Good job Bourn. Chance to give us a shot in this game even with the crummy call, and you strikeout. Let’s not pay this guy ten million a year . . .
We played poorly today. But when the other team plays poorly and is not penalized for it, then it’s a crying shame.
How long does MLB have to determine if the Braves have a legitimate protest??
Before I was just down on the Braves, now I’m down on the MLB. How can that call stand in this game?
October 5th, 20128:19 pm
Lost in all this mess: Braves 0 for the game with RISP
Wow, a strike out with the bases loaded – who do you blames for that Atlanta fans?
As valuable as bourn was the first half of the season, his strikeouts have just hurt us in the second half
Ric Flair to Right
Not one position player on this team is an lineup changer!!! heads better roll, changes need to be made
GET THAT STINKING OBAMA TO INVESTIGATE THE GARBAGE THROWING. MAYBE HE CAN DO THAT RIGHT.
Chuck from Waycross
i can hear sam wyche now..”you don’t live in cleveland, you live in atlanta”
The Braves can play this game under protest, but it will not make a damned bit of difference.
We could play tomorrow ………
Hammer the Homer
October 5th, 20128:20 pm
Fans doing the wrong thing they shoulda all ganged up and throwed the officials outta the ballpark !
Another Bourn strike out. .225 in the second half. CHOKER. He fits right in. So many chances to score…So many chokers with A’s on their caps. Not a clutch hitter on the team. Not one. Zero. Chokers all. Sad. Pathetic. Embarrassing.
See ya, Bourn…..sick of that dude.
Chipper’s last ever at bat coming up…..hard to believe.
He won’t forget this night! Lol
We might as well TRY to laugh…..
This is not how I hoped to see Kimbrel in this game
3 OUTS TILL GOLFIN SEASON!
Joe Simpson. Shut the F up.
Atlanta Choke Braves
Freddi should have kicked the umpire in the nuts
Some team will really overpay for that guy.
I like how all the non Braves fans posts are getting ignored. it’s like a baby that wants attention
October 5th, 20128:21 pm
Get outta town Bourn you POS.
“I’m pulling for lightening in the 9th”
Lance = Cab ?
Still one more chance at least.
u hope cards and giants play in NLCS I CANT WAIT
Worst call in the history of baseball. Worst ever.
Call John Edwards to sue the LFand 3B ump for lost gate receipts. He is not up to much these days
Discussion of this game will continue until March.
And it should.
We got screwed in a grand way.
We still have the 9th.
Despite the errors….I still love my Braves.
Jasons Shrinking Waist
Say goodbye Bourn
Dont let the door hit your wallet on the way out
Another wasted season
I watched this pathetic team every night for 20 years to watch only one Championship and this pathetic crap every time they get into the post season. Well, I’m retiring with Chipper. Until this sorry organization gets new ownership that will spend money for real hitters I will not be back ever. Other things to do with my life during the Summer.
Michael Bourn hit the road 1-10 to houston and don’t come back…
Get instant replay, get the call right, or baseball will continue to fade in popularity
Now Chipper is gonna say “We was robbed.” Then he’ll renegotiate his contract for 25 mil a season. Meanwhile, Bourne will thake his shame money and sign with the Cardinals.
Choke. Playing for next years contract swinging for the fence instead putting the ball in play.
And Atlanta fans, just awful. What did we have Philadelphia fans buy all our tickets?
October 5th, 20128:22 pm
I love the cardinals and giants
Way to send Chipper out? Fuc he sent himself out in a bad light…And the next time I here a transient talk about Atlanta fans I am gonna knock there ass out…Stl Louis fan can’t enter the stadium without a gat! Chicago, Philly, New York, LA fuc u.
If it wasn’t for Bourn we wouldn’t be in this so called WC..He carried the team first half– over 300ba and made all-stars. Fredi said he was 1st half MVP.
DEM ATL FANS CAN PAY MORE TENTION TO DERE MOMMIES NOW BASEBALL OVER!
wake up people thats what referees and umpires are there for, to control the outcomes of games! Kudo’s for the fans that got fed up!
I am sad for the team, with Chipper essentially losing it for them. And, then the bad calls.
Bourn didn’t need to catch that ball. it was an infield fly
Two infield flies caught by Bourn and Prado this inning.
Can the Cards go to the airport?
October 5th, 20128:23 pm
Umps are high
Waiting for some drunken fool to charge the field
So tired of putting my Time and Heart into this team, they have no comentment to winning at all, they are reduced to celebrtions on a play in game..pathetic, all involved…we’ve done nothing but over value our talent, we have none in the pipeline..its gonna be ugly around here for some time!!!! Screw you braves
This is ridiculous
Cards deserve nothing. They don’t deserve to be in this game and they don’t deserve to advance.
MLB changed their twitter profile right after that call… https://twitter.com/brooksbaseball/status/254375798247673856/photo/1 they removed what they had about the infield call.
ATL “FANS” SHOWING DERE TRU COLORS!
I am gonna tax Chipper hard in retirement…At least he will have healthcare.
Well, You gotta hand it to DOB’s headline writer. This certainly has been different. Not a good kinda different,but different.
Simpson,,feel free to go work in Cleveland or Minnesota next year. Good for the fans.
3 more outs and they choking is over. Their faces should be as blue as their hats with all that choking.
You know what KerryB…I think I’m there with you.

Enter your comments here
Told you chipper is a choker
So, how does the playing in protest thing work? When is a decision made?
Its do or die time……..
I wonder what Ross just said to the home plate ump after the strikeout.
Here we go Braves Nation…..get the rally caps on
Make this protest moot and win this game
One last chance, men and women.
Four runs or three outs to determine the fate of the 2012 Atlanta Braves!
October 5th, 2012
and some of us have worn out the subject of our offensive inconsistency for two years now. This is why it matters.
It costs us everything….
Can’t wait to see what the great Larry Jones decides to bless us with, lol.
Awful call (I have NEVER seen that kind of call ever before on an outfield fly), and an already ugly game gets further marred by frustrated fans throwing debris onto the field. This’ll be a night to forget as a Braves fan.
ESPN hates the Braves
2 bad we didnt use Kimbrel earlier when we HAD to have a strikeout and brought in Durbin instead, it would be a 4-3 game right now.
Bourn, Larry Jones, and UGGLY, the 3 stooges cost the braves the game. Uggly should not be playing, and larry jones should trade his wheelchair in for a hooters VIP card. And for Bourn thank God this is his last game in a braves uniform. As for the game being under protest, for braves fans the whole season should have been played under protest for the braves allowing Fredi to be the manager. After all, if this idiot wasn’t the manager, UGGLY wouldn’t be in starting lineup. Thank GOD the nightmare is finally over for this pitiful losing franchise.
ray k – I would think by tomorrow morning. Not sure though.
Tween the choking and the refs….doomed
Joe simpson need to shut his high and mighty mouth up. HE is a disgrace to atlanta……
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
