    That'd be so sweet. Heh heh

    No more .500-O-METER. A sweep of the Astros would give the Braves an 80-82 record, the same as the 1984 Braves.

    I've almost forgotten that we are out of contention the past couple of days. It's been good watching. Chipper hit a beautiful home run from the right side of the plate tonight. It's good to see that Hudson will end the season with a winning record. Smoltz, although he probably won't win it, is a legitimate contender for the Cy Young award. Chipper is increasing his percentage categories into truly elite territory. I am sad that the season will soon come to an end, but let's enjoy it while we can. Braves baseball will be over in the next couple of days until April. I agree with you Sam. The Met's chances in the playoffs are not looking good right now.
    I thought about this, and I've concluded that right now, the Mets look like the Braves going into the playoffs from 2002 to 2005.

    The pessimist says:

    "Oh sure, NOW they beat the Mets, NOW they kick butt."

    The optimist says:

    "This'll throw off the Mets in the NLDS for sure!"

    Only other Braves to have back-to-back 40 homer seasons are Eddie Mathews and Hank Aaron. Nice slugging, Andruw!

    .500-O-METER: 5-0

    No chance of getting to .500 now.

    .500-O-METER: 6-0

    Probably the last time you'll see this.

    I'm glad you had a chance to go to the game. I've been attended Braves games vicariously this season and it looks like I'll miss a game for the first time since 1996.

    I missed the game today, but I was at the game saturday, which was shaping up to be a great comback until Fuentes struck out LaRoche and Pratt

    Thoughts:
    Offense: can we get Andruw to hit like that every night!? He was 4/4 with two homers, a double a single and a walk. I think everybody cheered when he hit the home runs, even Rockies fans -- the place went off every time he came up to bat. As a matter of fact, the only time it was louder was when Chipper came up to pinch hit with the bases loaded (of course, they also cheered when he struck out). Apparently everybody loves Chipper and Andruw

    It was nice to see some offense from Pratt, who came into the game hitting below .200. He had a pair of doubles. Unfortunantly he fouled off several pitches before striking out to end the game with the tying run on second.


    We had this annoying little girl sitting behind us who just wanted to make noise -- she kept yelling things at the players, and had no idea how the game was played. At one point, they announced that Brad Hawpe had come in as a defensive replacement and she yelled "booo Brad!" several times before someone had to tell her that Hawpe played for the Rockies

    Overall, a fun time, but it was super cold.

    Well, we have been officially elminated from playoff contention fittingly enough in a game blown by the bullpen. Only about six months until next season starts. It can't come soon enough. At least Chipper's back and playing great.
    I'd give equal weight to James and Yates blowing it.

    There's no getting around that fat contract! Maybe the Yankees will take him, after all they have blown money on Jaret Wright, Kyle Farnsworth, and Steve Karsay. (all former Braves)
    If we can somehow convince Georgie that Hampton will fix the hole(s) in his rotation, he'd take him.
