Come on, letting Melky Cabrera go FOR NOTHING, was another of Wren’s follys. He went to the Royals, they got him in shape and he performed up to his potential, simple as that and now he is doing the same thing out here in the Bay Area. Think perhaps Wren’s judgment should be questioned on this move?? Of course it should but not one of you in the press has done it!! Get off your ass and ask some questions, the guy is raking and what, the Braves couldn’t use a player like that. Gimme a break.

Hey Mark, I see that Peter Moylan is going to pitch friday in Rome. Could you give us an update on his rehab progress

JUST WONDERING — Mr. Bradley, exactly how many Pitchers would have to be injured over a 7 year period (since Leo left) for you writers to notice this or question this???????

Don, you hit on the “elephant in the room” that is the back-channel communications I’ve had for years with my local Braves supporters…. Can’t figure out why Bobby (as loyal as they come) or now FG doesn’t act on the key “threat” in this team analysis………. Either the never-ending chain of above the neck issues, due to an affable yet lacking on “coaching-up” PC……… or the physical breakdowns (connected?) has led to the last 7 years of our deep mound talent never fully meeting the expectations…………….I’d use a UGA metaphor on lack of ever “coaching-up”but don’t want to start that comparison until after my trip to Mizzou… With the Bravos it has been Same ‘ol Same ‘ol since LM acquisition and their corporate mindset…….. 95 wins this year and out in the “one game…….shoot-out” against the……..Cards……..ohhh-noooo

One thing that troubles me the most is I keep hearing Prado”s name being brought up again as far as a trade goes, he has been our best hitter in 2 of the last 3 years and he can play multiple positions very well which is why other teams want him badly, resign Bourne to a great contract, find a good minor league shortstop to trade for because of Simmons injury, get Greinke and we have a good chance to win it all provided we stay healthy and F.G. does a better job managing.

Hunter Pence is once again available. Let’s get him this time.

20-22 Home record speaks volumes for the Braves. Get with it fellows

We have, without a doubt, the best, most savy, stupid, congenial fans around. Just reading these posts will give anyone a “steak dinner” of comments. However, don’t worry about a tip, it isn’t that good.

Fans pay for high priced tickets. They can say whatever they feel…..bro
Bobby Cox was a donk

I wish Bobby Cox had even more passion. Ever time his passion led to a heehawing stool flinging tantrum that got him ejected from the game, the Braves’ odds of winning that game went up about a thousand fold. As for knowledge of the game, Cox knew ways to screw up that normal men would never even have thought of.

Bobby Cox often left me in awe. I’d sit there staring at the tv with my mout gaping, wondering how in the name of god one man could be so incredibly stupid. I was utterly amazed at how many times he could make the same donkey mistakes
July 15th, 201212:10 pm
So, now we have a donkey’s rear end for a manager now huh? He was practically raised & nurtured by Bobby, except this one doesn’t want to cross umpires, or hurt nobodies feelin’s. He’s a Bobby protege’ if I’ve ever seen one.

He’s a sweet feller in a gentle kinda way.

Fredi G is an extremely average and underwhelming manager. The fact he doesnt argue with umps is one of his best traits. You dont need to argue with umps to protect your players, and its perhaps the least productive activity anyone can engage in on the field. All that said, as average and unremarkable as Fredi G is, he is a million times better than Cox was.
