    Ouch. Five strike outs for the kid.

    Well, looks like the series we expected. Two one run games. We put our worst pitcher up against Kershaw and came close.

    9 game losing and winning streaks = symmetry.

    I applaud the Bravos! Go Braves.

    G’night, ABT.

    I’d say Honeycutt and Torre had a very good idea of how the pitchers should pitch to him before the series started.

    Good game. Let’s win tomorrow night!

    Good chance to take the series with Hanson and Hudson. I really hope McOut doesn’t get to start tomorrow. He is absolutely pathetic. How many has he LOB in the past couple weeks- not that it has mattered until tonight. Seriously though, the guy, as Bub pointed out, is hitting .175 and it’s June. I really don’t think his defense is good enough for him to be playing with that average. He needs time to in the minors to figure out how to hit. Frenchy was a much better defensive outfielder, and he got sent down. Other than that the team is playing really really really well. Glad to see Escobar get that big hit. Tough break for KK and EOF. Even Chavez had a good outing. You can’t win ’em all. ‘Night everybody. USA vs Australia live from South Africa @ 8:30 AM tomorrow. Got the DVR ready to go because I will not be getting up that early.

    P.S. I love the CWS. Some of these matchups are really amazing. For example, in one regional you have Bethune-Cookman, with an enrollment of about 2,850, against the University of Florida, with an enrollment of about 51,000. What a game.

    Curt must have not been following tonight because “I think McLouth suffers from performance anxiety” didn’t get a “that’s what she said”.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Too specific…next time say “he suffers from performance anxiety”. I’ve perfected this art.

    That’s what she said.

    Lesson learned. Thanks.

    I’ve decided to follow Curt’s example and head to the beach next week. I’ll be sitting on a screened in porch with my laptop and margarita.

    Back in the ATL. Finally….. Long trip home. It began at 9:15 and just ended 30 min or so ago. The wife apparently can’t really read the printed out directions in reverse so we added an hour or so to the trip as we went all the way down to Charleston. It was of course my fault. Then she wanted Wendy’s and we went to the busiest and/or slowest Wendy’s on the planet. So that took another hour. Yikes. But we are all back in one piece and had a great time, so that’s the most important part.

    I missed most of the game last night packing and sleeping to endure the ride. The streak had to end sometime. It starts anew tonight.

    Welcome home Curt! Everyone must read DOB’s latest blog entry! Mandatory!

    “I don’t care who’s the best second baseman in the National League,” he said. “I don’t care about that. The only thing I care is if I’ve got the respect of all my teammates, all the people who see me play every day. That’s my All-Star Game.”

    There’s a vid of the ABT’ers at the Ted, supplemented with a few AJC pics. Blame Leah for the photo shortage.

    Bub Says:

    Oh, and you might want to watch it pretty quick. Copyright violations abound. Sometimes they leave them alone, sometimes they yank them.

    Nate Says:

    Just read it, Mara. It is definitely a great blog on a great player. The picture of McOut looking up at the sky while the ball bounces behind him pretty much sums up his entire Braves career to date. DOB does some great work. I never enjoy reading the dumb and sometimes racist remarks made by those who are on the ajc blog, though. That’s why I never respond on anything and usually don’t read past what DOB has typed. I don’t know why I made the mistake today.

    Nate Says:

    Nice video Bub. What a happy bunch of Braves fans. Looks like fun was had by all in spite of weather. The picture of Wagner’s arm when he’s throwing is pretty cool. I liked the random glamour shot of Hamels being very elegant with his wife.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Love the video Bub! Thanks for doing that although you must have forgotten…everything is Steve’s fault.

    Bub – LOVE the YouTube. Thanks for that. Good to see TCC w/”Mara” too.

    Hey ANNE!!!!

    Anne Says:

    Girls of the ABT Comments section unite!! I’m staying up to watch the whole freaking game tonight…having nothing to do with meeting the boyfriend’s parents tomorrow morning. Some methodist-type church (beware lightning) followed by lunch. Heaven help me. I bought a whole new outfit today. I hope I pass. In ON-topic news: Go Braves!!

  23. 648
    Mara Wanna Tan Says:

    Oh outfit and everything. Does it include stilettos? I hear Methodists love their women in stilettos and low necklines. I never asked how long it took you guys to walk the three miles back to your cars. Hope it was uneventful. Did BP Frank have to carry Steve? Yeah…I knew that would happen.

  24. 649
    Anne Says:

    I’m here to tell you: Ballpark Frank carried Steve, piggy-back style.

    No stilettos, but the shoes are red. WHORE red. Purse and earrings will match.

    Mara Wanna Tan Says:

    My Grandfather always said when a woman was feeling “discontent” at home she would either go out and have an affair or buy a pair of red shoes. He was always happy to see my Grandmother come home with red shoes. Don’t fret. You’re delightful and I’m sure they will love you.
