Chipper and retirement.  Firing TP, take two.  Lowe’s new pitching approach.  And the resurgence of Troy Glaus.

    22 year old Mike Leake just made Grandpa look like a tool. Throwing hard inside and then striking him out. way to be Chipper. way to be.

    Bubdylan, you HAVE to tell me you have a tiny spark that believes a little tiny bit!

    Mara Says:

    Don’t tell but I cried a little in my eyes just now. Not on my face but just a little misty. This team has magic.

    How many times over the past few years would the Braves have quit after the 2nd inning, down 8 runs. What a game. What unbelievable momentum heading to Pittsburgh now. I’m really speechless. On a side note, there’s a strange thrill watching that kind of thing unfold on Gameday. Seeing the pitch “in play” but then having to wait to see what happened. What a game!

    Bubdylan Says:

    Mara, I looked at the wild card teams ahead of the Braves last night again and there are a lot of teams who have as many question marks (or more) as Atlanta. So, I don’t know if that constitutes a spark or not.

    But I couldn’t feel grumpy at the Braves today even if they were the worst team in the majors. That’s a game you keep with you forever. When we remember Conrad, it’ll be for this moment, like other non-greats that we’ll never forget: Willie Harris and his catch, Bream’s slide, Francisco Cabrera for the same play, Otis Nixon’s catch, etc. To be down exactly three in the bottom of the ninth and hit a grand slam: how often does it happen? And after already scoring the three you need to get in position that same inning? Brooks Conrad’s entire scrappy career glorified in one play today. Amazing.

    And one of the great things about baseball: in the NBA if you’re down 20 with three minutes to play, it’s over. In football, down 21 with 2 minutes, it’s over. But if you’ve got one of the worst offenses in baseball and you’re down 6 with 3 outs left? Game not over. Good day to be a ballfan.

    Mara Says:

    I love watching J-Hey bear hug Conrad at the end! All you see is his little white bald head. I love how Jason was as excited today with the win as he was yesterday. I freakin love that Chipper was pulled and that Conrad got a scouting report from him before he stepped up to the plate. My phone died when the count was 2-2 and I ran upstairs. By the time I got it plugged in the game had ended and I assumed a DP. Then I saw the score and went beserk. I’ve watched the replay over and over. I guess now I should start supper. Go Braves!!!!

    Mara Says:

    I need to see you say it Bub…”good day to be a BRAVES fan.”

    Bubdylan Says:

    Oh, Mara, Lord help you if you need that from the most neurotic sports fan in the world on a day like this one. But I wouldn’t deny you a warm fuzzy if I can help it: It’s a good day to be a Braves fan.
