Show #107: The Braves’ Bats Wake Up

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

    What did I miss?

    Curt Says:

    Turns out the one factor in continuing a winning streak I continue to overlook is Bobby. His lineup today seems dubious at best.

    Prado-4,
    Infante-5,
    Heyward-9
    Glaus-3,
    Escobar-6,
    Cabrera-8,
    Ross-2,
    Clevlen-7,
    Medlen-1

    Wow, worst line up possible for Pittsburgh’s ace. Doesn’t make much sense. I know it’s Pittsburgh, but come on. I wonder if Medlen was as disappointed as I was when he saw the line up. I’ve said it before, the man knows how to put together a terrible looking 5-8 in the order. At least no Chipper and BMac, but Yunel and Melky 5 and 6 seems like automatic rally killers. Hinske should play everyday on the Braves but for some reason he doesn’t. Oh wait, there is a reason he doesn’t play everyday. It’s name is Bobby Cox. Go Braves!

    “Pittsburgh’s ace”- is there really such a thing?

  5. 405
    McOut Says:

    Does anyone know why Heyward was pulled out of the line up?

  6. 406
    Mara Wanna Sweep Says:

    I think Melky’s about to get hot. I’m calling it right now.

    Mara Wanna Sweep Says:

    Per DOB
    Just a day off for Heyward, decided to give him the same two-day rest several others are getting (Braves don’t play Monday)

    Mara Says:

    Is “Lastings” his real name? Does his mother hate him?

  9. 409
    Mara Wanna Company Says:

    Now MLB.com saying Heyward has a sore left thumb. Nothing serious. And Bobby wanted to rest some of the starters before a 20 game stretch.

    Mara Wanna Company Says:

    Whew…that was close…come on Meds.

  11. 411
    Steve Says:

    The line-up does seem crazy, particularly Clevlen for Hinske. Bobby must feel like he’s playing with house money today.

  12. 412
    Mara Wanna Sweep Says:

    Prado and I aren’t on speaking terms until he gets another hit. Just to notify the masses.

  13. 413
    Steve Says:

    2 DPs from Prado today! It’s Escobarian from our best hitter.

  14. 414
    Mara Wanna Sweep Says:

    Nice inning Meds. Why did he not start the year in the bullpen?

  15. 415
    Mara Wanna Sweep Says:

    I know…not happy with him right now. There is trouble in paradise.

  16. 416
    Steve Says:

    Really funny stuff from DOB about the less than stellar lineup. This is my favorite: “This just in from Elias Sports Bureau: Board of directors has met and determined that Kris Medlen will be awarded either two wins or no loss today, depending upon outcome.”

  17. 417
    Mara Wanna Sweep Says:

    Meds at 58 pitches…how long can he go?

  18. 418
    Mara Wanna Sweep Says:

    I like that Clevlen kid. I was just checking out the Hinske amazing play Bub posted…he really did save yesterday’s game with that play. It seems like Lowedemort can’t right himself once he stumbles and Hinske kept him from falling off the cliff. Awesome play.

  19. 419
    Mara Wanna Sweep Says:

    BEEEutiful bunt base hit by our backup catcher.

  20. 420
    Mara Wanna Sweep Says:

    We should take bets on who hits .250 first.
    a)Melky
    b)McOut
    c) Escobar
    d) none of the above.

  21. 421
    McOut Says:

    BoSox are giving Halladay a tough time.

  22. 422
    Mara Wanna Sweep Says:

    I LOVE THIS TEAM! Time to give Meds some cushion.

  23. 423
    McOut Says:

    Nice throw from Melky. Couldn’t see it, but it sounded great.

  24. 424
    Mara Wanna Sweep Says:

    My #2 kid says hi.

  25. 425
    McOut Says:

    I think Escobar could get to .250 first just because he didn’t play for a couple weeks and doesn’t have as many bad ABs to make up. Plus, I think he’s the better hitter of the three.
