Leah, sorry you felt abandoned…wed. is my “night out with the guys/gals” Came home in time to see the bases loaded and no runs produced. Bummer. I agree Werth looks like a Neanderthaller Dude. Hoping for 2/3 tomorrow. Go Braves!
The Escobar grounder really was a shame. It really should have gotten through. Don’t know if Mac could have scored from 2nd on it but … kind of pointless conversation, I suppose. To add to your good signs, Bub: Chipper with some hits, Glaus clearly getting to the ball better and Nate making good contact. The more I think about it, the season is not over yet!
Atlanta, can’t we pack the house for our first place team versus the best pitcher in Baseball during Bobby’s last year on the night after two dramatic 9th inning victories in a row? If not now, when?
A bad baseball town, I fear it shall ever be. Is there no city in the whole Southeast that can take advantage of this market?
I have a solution: pump the games into people’s homes, sell season tickets, Pay Per View… and give the people at home microphones with live feeds into a new sound system at the Ted. Have the technicians pump in real, bonafide screaming from home, and make it where it can’t be faked or increased beyond the noise being properly made. Yes, yes, I’m onto something.
From Tampa to Portland, the Crowd Goes Wild. Hell, we might could even arrange holographic images for each “ticket holder.” I’m calling James Cameron. It must be done.
Bub, I know it’s a dead horse, but I SO agree about empty seats. As a season ticketholder, if I can’t be at the games, I make darned sure that my seats have butts in them. My butt will be there tonight, has it has been the last two nights.
School’s not out yet, the traffic is bad, it’s a weekday, spring practice is going on for UGA, blah, blah, blah – very disappointing.
So my son and I were watching the game last night on the DVR and were about an hour behind. We put our rally caps on in the 8th but my son questioned the power of the cap for a game whose outcome had already been decided. I told him it would still work, but deep down, I had a real crisis of faith about it. Thoughts?
Steve, I’ve mentioned before I expect the Braves to win every game. If they’re being shutout by the best pitcher in the baseball well I sense a dramatic ending even Walt himself couldn’t fashion. As Bub said…gotta have faith. I’m curious to see which game Halliday pitches the next time phills come to town. I’m glad I’m going to two of those games so I will get to see atleast one game we can win. I mean Halliday can’t pitch two COMPLETE games in a row. *chuckles* right? I am…right about that…surely.
This is the first time I’ve watched us play Moyer since I began to dislike him. This is the one guy… the ONE GUY… who, if he shuts us down, after giving up 5 runs to each of Houston and Florida… I’m not going to listen to any “he just brought the pitching today.” I’ve listened to it for the other sub-par pitchers we’ve faced who’ve magically discovered their mega-mojo, but not this time.
Seriously, if 3-mississippi Per Hour Methuselah shuts us down, I’m going into hiding until we get a big bat.
Or until the next game. Whichever comes first.
But do you know why he stands a decent chance at doing just that? Cuz we are a team without an approach. Anybody else feel that way? Just… up to each batter. No philosophy. No gameplan. No approach.
Hack. Hack. Hack. Oh, look it’s the 8th innning and their starter’s only thrown 6 pitches, how’d THAT happen, I wonder????
