Show #122: Derrek Lee Joins the Braves

Derrek up, Glaus down.  Chipper critiques TP.  Minor impresses.  And the late inning magic.

    any one else want to puke right now?
    and yea why would be bring fransworth in with anything less than a 5 run lead!?

    So frustrating. Are we the Mets?

    Bobby Cox is freaking retarded. I’m glad I tuned in late for this one. I’m nauseated just thinking what it would have been like to see that ending after watching them leading 10-1.

    What a jerk. He literally damages relievers’ careers. I’m glad as hell he’s leaving. I wish he were gone right now. I care nothing at all about the Braves doing well for “Bobby’s Last Year.” I hope they do well, but don’t give one crap about him having a legacy. Get out of town, Bob. Arm-wrecker.

    Seriously, this was the Escobar floptoss to Glaus for me and Bobby Cox. Done with him.

    At a celebratory gathering for ME, I watched the bar TVs…and suddenly today isn’t such a celebratory day. For shame.

  8. 108
    Curt Says:

    Nonsense Anne. You deserve your celebration.

    And Bub, beyond the crime that is Venters, he left JJ in to get hammered and really had no plan when it all blew up. I know I am prone to hyperbole, but that was quite possibly the most disgraceful thing I have ever seen. He has no clue.

    Curt Says:

    Look at what JJ has done on the road this year. He’s awful. Get him out of there when he starts to struggle so profoundly. Bring in Martinez. ANYTHING.

    You have GOT to be kidding me.

    Jimbo! Says:

    Phillies LOSE

  12. 112
    Curt Says:

    Dodged another bullet – and also blew a chance to gain a game.

    Steve Says:

    Jimbo! – first and foremost, YES. Phillies lose. It’s my mantra tonight and it’s very successfully bringing down my blood pressure.

    Anne – holy cuss! Congratulations. That is terrific, terrific news.

    I think the ridiculous use of Farnsworth today is important for Bobby. He’s got to bust through his blind devotion to a guy to where he gets to his unreasonable distrust of a guy. Like he did with KK and Chavez. He’s got to be only 2 or 3 more disastrous appearances by Farnsworth away from that point.

    JJ – I’ll be back in the clubhouse/pressbox this coming Tuesday the 31st. Hopefully I’ll get some good interviews and I’ll be tweeting from the pressbox that night as well. If you don’t follow us on Twitter (our account is typically manned by Curt, who does a tremendous job) we’re @atlbaseballtalk.

    Bub Says:

    lol, Happy beat Halladay. What a sucky week atop the NL East leaderboard. Is New York getting close yet? I don’t want to look.

  15. 115
    Curt Says:

    Cincy also blew a 10-1 lead today. Beware the NL.

  16. 116
    Mara Wanna Says:

    Jays beat the Yanks, angels beat the Rays, Astros over Phillies, Pirates over Cards (thanks to bad 3rd base coaching) and then that other game I can’t stand to mention. Weird baseball day.

    Atlanta Braves (Official Site) >> Lowe tired of coming out on short end

    Well bless his pea pickin heart and love his bones…poor fella.

  18. 118
    Curt Says:

    Atlanta Baseball Talk (Official Site) >> Braves fans tired of Lowe losing his starts

    Anne Says:

    Steve – #113 – I love that you reference Fantastic Mr. Fox like that.

    I looked at the Marlins web site to see if I could find something to look forward to (ie weaknesses for the weekend series…) but I’m not seeing much. They run as hot & cold as we do.

    Curt Says:

    One warning: the Marlins signed Wes Helms to an extension

  21. 121
    Mara Wanna Says:

    Wed Helms should be intentionally walked every single at bat.

  22. 122
    Curt Says:

    Astros 4 – Phils 0 in the top of the 4th

  23. 123
    Mara Wanna WS Win Says:

    Wed as well as his twin brother Wes.

  24. 124
    Curt Says:

    4-1 top of the 7th

  25. 125
    Curt Says:

    how bout them Astros. All that and we gain .5 game. Eat it Phils.
