  • How about Barry Bonds robbing Jeff Francouer??

    • Here's our offense again! The monster offense that is.

      But our pitching has to improve. How are we walking 2 guys with a 7-run lead?

      Could someone slap Yates in the face with a hamhock or SOMETHING? His mind isn't right.

        It is sad that we had to bring in Wickman during a game like that. It was a great game for our offense, but another reminder of how bad our bullpen is except for Wickman.

          Well I reading on probable pitchers, and it looks like Kyle Davies will be our starter for Saturday? Sweetness!

          I can only imagine that Cormier would stay in the rotation, and Oscar would move back into the bullpen. I'd be happy with The Vulture back at middle-relief duties.

          It's a shame Baez is out for the season. Baez and Villareal setting up Wickman in the 9th would be awesome. I guess I'll have to restore my faith in Paronto.


          -------------------------------------
          By the way, James pitches tonight and Smoltz on Thursday. I won't make any predictions, but that looks mighty fine to me! Go Braves!

          • This makes 4 straight wins with John Smoltz going tomorrow. Andruw Jones made an absolutely incredible play tonight.

            I don't really want to bring this up with the Braves playing so well, but has anyone else noticed that McCann hasn't been able to throw anybody out in quite a while. I'm hoping it is just because his ankle is bothering him. He was throwing out runners earlier in the season, but the last time I remember seeing him throw out a runner was Jose Reyes on a pitchout.

            • I'm speechless right now, not because the Braves are winning, but because we still have a big gap to fill and the Braves are winning. These two situations put me in a bind and I don't know what to say. Can they still come back?

              • Questionable Web Gem order: Andruw's catch was #2 to Taveras' dive?

                Um, Andruw has a diving catch once a week, lol.

                Ah well, Andruw will have another GG and Taveras can have a web-gem.


                Oh it's good to be a Braves fan today. The tank takes the mound tomorrow, and I'm likin' this.

                • Smoltz never looked comfortable tonight. He changed out the balls quite frequently even for him. We tried to make a comeback, but couldn't quite pull it off. I'm looking forward to seeing Davies make his return on Saturday. Rosters expand tomorrow, so we will be seeing Thorman, Jordan, Devine, and a handful of other players again. Hopefully Jordan will get a few at bats since this might be his last year. I know he's said he wants to come back next year, but I don't think it is likely. The last month of the season should be fairly interesting.

                    I didn't see Taveras' play, but it is hard to believe that any play was better than Andruw's. I wonder if they looked at the entire play or just the jump and catch. I don't think any other center fielder in baseball could play as shallow as Andruw and get to that ball. It was one of the finest plays I have seen all year. In fact, no play stands out in my mind as being better so far this year.

                    • The Braves will activate Joey Devine, Willy Aybar, and Kyle Davies off the DL. Brayan Pena, Scott Thorman, and Joey Devine will be recalled.

                      The Braves also acquired Daryle Ward from the Nationals.

                      • Well here it is: the 4 game series with the Phillies!
                        Make or break time, here.

                        I'm happy with taking 2/3 from the Giants.

                        We had a 15-13 month of August. It's a winning month, so I'm also happy with that. We've won our last 2 series. Let's continue this!

                          I've probably said "this series" will decide the season about 5 times in the last few weeks, but this series against the Phillies will really decide the season. I won't put a number on it.

                          • Absolutely.

                            Well it might be a blessing in disguise: the game is PPD.
                            Yikes, we're going to have 2 doubleheaders vs. the Phillies before this season is over.

                                I made a mistake, the Braves have a make-up game against the Nats on September 18, it is a make-up for a game from April 22.
