This has been a great game. On a less-positive not, Chipper has looked absolutely terrible at the plate. He also got bailed out by Prado’s heady double play after he struggled getting the ball out of his glove and then threw a sinker to second. I guess he did get a walk so Bobby will consider it a good game for him.
Addendum to Mara: I stopped by “Play it again Sports” after work and bought an old, used Rawlings glove for 20 bucks. So, I’ll be the nearly 60 yo, guy with an old blue Braves hat and a young #22 shirt on…plus the glove. See ya at the plaza, or somewhere! Go Braves!
Unbelievable. That was nearly like the 5th(I’ve lost count at this point-could very easily be more)game Bobby’s cost us by way of questionable lineups and bullpen decisions. It’s only June 1. Wake-up and stop letting your undying devotion to players cost us a shot at the postseason, again. Geez. You’d think he’d learn after managing for 25 years. Nope. Same ol’ stubborn Cox. It’s like we see the same 5-15 terribly managed loses/near-loses every year. I can’t wait for a new manager.
I don’t think it’s misery when one is befuddled by the tying run coming to the plate in a game in which we went into the 9th with a 5 run lead. Maybe I’m alone on that one. Could be…. Don’t worry no misery here, lol. I usually don’t feel miserable over a game. Worse s*** can happen in life. That’s my outlook. Sorry for the ranting. I’ll stop now.
Just got done with work. Love my iphone and the ability to blog at any time. Was I really the only person upset with keeping Venters in in the ninth. Kind of surprised by that. Regardless, 7. N. A. Row. C’mon Hamburglar! Let’s make it a sweep. Puck the Fillies! ESPN replay is on. Timing couldn’t be better. Watching the game again. Surprise! this time I would still take Venters out after the 2nd batter he faced. I guess I’m miserable again, hahhahahaha!
Due to show all’s response to my previous comments about my supposed “Misery” I will begin my transition to the name of Jimmy Caan or Kathy Bates. I like Jimmy Caan more because it leads to the name of “Tollbooth”, which is obviously where Jimmy met his demise in the Godfather saga and is something I come across often in Florida. GO BRAVES!
