Chipper = Terrible Right Now
I haven't seen him make any good contact or any really good swing this series so far.
Edit :: Of course next AB he lines one in the Gap.

the braves sure like to score in bunches.
Good day offensively and Glaus really seems to be hitting his stride. Heyward might have had the worst day, it looked like he was trying to pull everything.
Since the Mets helped the Braves 9 game losing streak, I think it is only right to return the favor.
Also I think anything that makes it to the outfield the Braves should try to stretch it into extra bases because the Mets OF defense tonight is a joke.
edit: and is there a reason that cox keeps batting mccann clean-up? when glaus and hinske are tearing the covers of the ball? oh wait, it's the same reason chipper is batting third and heyward is batting second... stubborn. (i still respect cox and will enjoy his last season, but also when he's gone)

what are the odds lowe doesn't gives up 0 or 1 more run tonight against the lineup? i am saying 25%.
maybe hinske can be the braves LF next year?
why am i not surprised that with the lefty going that hinske is out! but why not ross in for mac? or infante playing in LF? sometimes i just don't get where bobby is coming from.....
here's how tonight will go in big game spots.. pitch around heyward to get to jones (instead of heyward and then glaus) and then if glaus is up pitch around him to get to mccann (instead of hinske).
Kenshin better be watching closely because if he doesn't start picking it up I think most would agree KK will be going to the pen.
Also I am so glad the Medlen is doing well as a starter, one of the reasons I thought/think trading Jair is okay, because while he won't be a star I really think he could be a good 3 or 4 in a rotation.
Edit :: Of course I say that and he gives up a pair of HRs.

come on wags, get that big K right here!
well, that was an unexpected ending.. but after last night.. i'll take it. now we just need to find a way to beat the suddenly surging reds? at least we have hanson going for one. come on let's get to .500 braves!
alright KK has a good 3-0 lead, let's see what he can do with it....
lots of deep fly balls so far... i wonder how many of those would be homers at cincin...
i think mclouth is finally stringing it together, so that gives us 6 MLB hitters in the everyday lineup (only chipper and escobar left to get going), this team could be pretty dangerous this summer. Also, KK looking good against an offense that has put up alot of runs lately.
