    Bub, it’s like you’re in my mind…

    Anne Says:

    Ha! Did Paulino just smile @ McLouth @ 3rd? They were Pirates together once, right?

    Sigh.

    Strands his 5th, 6th, and 7th runner on the night.

    [losing horns] I’m going back to Netflix.

    I think the Coen Brothers are directing this game.

    McOut Says:

    Whimper Jones blows it again. He’ll probably get credit for it being a line drive, right? Wrong. An out, is an out, is an out. He looks awful.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Damn the pitcher for hitting Heyward.

  8. 83
    McOut Says:

    Kawakami, while not rock solid, was solid, and he will probably get another L. This team just puts on their Suck Fest act when he pitches. It’s not his fault, but these uys don’t seem driven to play hard behind him.

    Steve Says:

    No kidding. Hitting Heyward really did NOT help us. At least Chipper hit it solidly. It was less frustrating than rolling over on it weakly.

    McOut Says:

    The Braves cannot get Maybin out.

  11. 86
    Mara Wanna Says:

    All right…score some runs!

    Bubdowner Says:

    Prado and Heyward won’t be up again unless the other batters don’t wake up.

  13. 88
    Bubdowner Says:

    *do wake up.

    Add to that, Piniero was getting hit at a .350 clip by lefties and a .160 something against righties so Chipper takes that knowledge and bats righty.

    Miller’s Crossing must get some credit for being perfectly brilliant, although a 12 on the grim meter

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Is there anyway Escobar beats that ball? Am I just expecting him to give a halfass effort cause when dude bobbled the ball I had hope.

    Curt Says:

    “once chipper and escober get going, watch out world”

    - Steve

    McOut Says:

    The left side of the infield is garbage.

  18. 93
    Bubdowner Says:

    I noticed Freddie flubbed the reverse split putting Pinto (you meant Pinto, right?) in to face Heyward. Not a smooth move for our future (hope, hope, hope) manager.

    I watched Miller’s Crossing just this week. Wally Mart shucking them for five dolla. My first time seeing it on a nice t.v., didn’t know how beautiful the cinematography was. John Turturo = amazing in that movie. His finest hour, to me.

    Bubdowner Says:

    “Is there anyway Escobar beats that ball?”

    Not without hustling. So, no.

  20. 95
    Curt Says:

    Pinto. yes.

  21. 96
    Curt Says:

    That whole cast is great. Albert Finney is tremendous. All the Coen players are in rare form. Just a great movie.

  22. 97
    McOut Says:

    really surprised to see Chavez still out there

  23. 98
    Bubdowner Says:

    “youse fancy pants, all o’ yas” Love that line.

    “Look into your heart, Tom. I’m praying to you. Look into your heart.” Gives me chills just typing it.

    And Leo tommy gunning the guy upstairs after jumping out the window is one of the most satisfying pieces of violence in film. I think the score is underrated, too.

    And it’s grim, true enough, but I don’t get that scuzzy feeling like nobody’s worth a crap. Leo and Tom’s loyalty to each other is genuinely nice, even the bust up at the end doesn’t really hurt that. “I said we were through, it’s not the same thing.”

  24. 99
    Mara Wanna Says:

    So…Steve, you thought we’d take the other two games…right?

  25. 100
    McOut Says:

    Thanks Bobby. Now it’s officially an L. Were there really no other relievers available for the 8th? At the time of the double, Chavez had already thrown 30 and appeared to be laboring.
