    Even Troy Glaus knows the ABT addage – “winning is more fun than losing”

    “We’re playing good, we’re winning games,” Glaus said. “That’s always fun.”

    Winning IS more fun than losing. Steve, I just sawed off my friends broom handle so it’s more easily maneuvered. Sucks to be her! Sweeeeeeeep!

    McOut, we were screaming, literally, for Bobby to take Venters out. But, alls well that ends well. Sort of, until next time he makes a bone headed move and we lose.

    Leah – I need some Twitter 101 help. I have three questions:
    1. How did the Braves Organist know about the ABT tweet if he doesn’t follow us (I checked, he doesn’t)?
    2. I went to his Twitter feed and saw his tweet that read “@atlbaseballtalk ; – )”. Shouldn’t that have showed up on the ABT feed (maybe not for the general public, but should I see that response?)
    3. How did you know about his tweet?

    Anybody see the excuse note on the Braves FB site? You can fill in the blanks and turn it in to your boss since you’re feeling poorly and need to get to the game. Signed by “Dr.” Brian McCann. That Braves front office has some time on their hands…

    Random Jimmy Caan quote that applies to the 2008 Braves:
    Showing up every day isn’t enough. There are a lot of guys who show up every day who shouldn’t have showed up at all.

    Good to hear, Mara. I was screaming in my head.

    Tollbooth Says:

    Typical lineup for a RH pitcher. It’s our old nemesis Kyle Kendrick…

    Steve Says:

    And McBenched is back in. Sigh.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Steve, I imagine @bravesorganist either has his account set up to show any comment including the words “Braves Organist” or he does a search post game for that phrase. If you follow him all his comments should show up on your feed. Actually it should show up even if you don’t follow him. It showed up on my feed because i follow him.

    McBenched no more:(.

    My people are late. They just don’t get it.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Dudes on 790 estimate 30,000+ last night post rain delay and everything. Serious crowd last night. I’m bringing about half that to the game today!

    Anne Says:

    “Mara” – re #259 – I hear you! If I could be there when the gates open every time, I would be! What IS their collective problem??

    Mara Wanna Says:

    2 Braves games in 24 hours…peeing my pants.

  13. 263
    Mara Wanna Says:

    People around me in last night’s game weren’t nearly as needy as those around me in today’s game. There are not 31,000 people here.

  14. 264
    Anne Says:

    I so rarely get to listen to the games on radio – loving it. Go Braves!!

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Glaus was robbed right in front of me.

    Tollbooth Says:

    Why didn’t McBenched try to throw out their catcher at the plate? Unfortunately McBenched isn’t gonna live up to the new name because of Bobby. He said as much in the same interview where he compared his defensive skills to Andruw.

  18. 268
    Tollbooth Says:

    There’s an article on bleacher report on how our pitching staff is having a better year at the plate than McBenched.

  19. 269
    Tollbooth Says:

    If you don’t want to read the McOut article I’ll save you some time. Pitching staff .184 AVG, McBenched .179. It also mentions that Hinske has as many hits as McTerrible in half as many ABs. He really is BAD.

    Jones and Heap are killing me. Kill-ing-me.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    O Infante…I’m so glad you took over for Chipper!

  22. 272
    Wade Says:

    Why was Chipper benched (i’m not complaining, just curious because ESPN gametracker only shows that Infante replaced him, and not why). Did he hurt himself hitting into a DB and then striking out?

  23. 273
    Bub Says:

    He tweaked his ability.

  24. 274
    Wade Says:

    Sorry, that was DP, for Double Play. Also known as a Twin Killing

    Anne Says:

    Wade: typical hangnail injury, poor guy… (no, not really)
