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

    The Rev warned me. He said, “Ya know Hanson’s gonna have to give up 2 to 5 runs in the first two innings.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Ok…seriously. I need an explanation. Why is this happening?

    Curt, remind us all again: What’s better than losing? I forget.

    Hey, Rev, Tommy can stink late in games, too. Don’t sell ‘im short… :(

    Bub Says:

    See ya, Bravos. I’d rather do math than this.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    WHY?????? What the hell is happening to Tommy freaking Hanson? I’m about to say very ugly words!

    ah this sucks

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    In the next podcast I expect to hear how the team doesn’t trust Hanson, how they just don’t score runs for him, how he pitches some good and some bad — along the lines of how you dissed KK…

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    So, for next year, who do we need to get besides Ugla and Helms so we don’t have to face them?

    Bub Says:

    Mark, Hanson is 19 – 13 with a 3.24 ERA coming into tonight, and is 23 years old.

    KK is a veteran, 8-21, with a 4.17 ERA, and struggling in Gwinnett. I’m with you on a general lack of respect for Kawakami (not by this podcast more than by any other Atlanta media I’ve seen), but they are such different players in terms of both career performance and career potential. It’s hard to pretend they deserve the same level of patience.

    Hanson is like 5467658 times better than KK

    Curt Says:

    I’ve been forced into watching the pre-season Falcons game. Snore

    Bub Says:

    I broke down and bought some White Stripes. Am I young now?

  14. 164
    Curt Says:

    I encourage everyone to listen to the KK show again. Aside from avowed Braves hater Ham, Steve and I could not have been more supportive of him. In every conceivable facet. My opinion of him has not changed at all. Nor has it changed of Tommy Hanson.

    Curt Says:

    Bub, which album?

  16. 166
    Bub Says:

    TWS. Their Debut. I knew it was rawer, to a fault for some people, but I wanted to start on the first rung. I love it. I’ve played it 3 times today.

  17. 167
    Bub Says:

    “Steve and I could not have been more supportive of him.”

    True. And earlier in the season, I actually thought you guys thought a little too much of him, as far as his pitching goes.

  18. 168
    Bub Says:

    I hope Philly wins tonight. I’m tired of the suspense. I want to see what this club does with their asses over the fire.

  19. 169
    Bub Says:

    Okay, really going. Mood spoiling by the pitch… g’night ABT. Go Falcons.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Why am I still watching this game? I have the PBS documentary “War” waiting on Netflix…why am I not watching that?

  21. 171
    Curt Says:

    They’re really great. Great diversity with their songs. White Blood Cells is a really fine album too. And they don’t get too polished. They do pick up a bassist by Elephant, I think, but they are terrific.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    That’s why…thanks J-Hey.

    Anne Says:

    It’s no better when you’re back home on your couch. Oh, well, there’s always tomorrow…

    Steve Says:

    Was out all night with the family at Six Flags. But could not believe what I kept seeing on my Blackberry as I checked the score. And now to read the game story and see all the homers given up. I mean, it was so bad that Bobby couldn’t even sugar coat Hanson’s performance. Not the way to start this homestand. Phillies/Padres tied in the 10th. C’mon Padres.

    JJ, my email is: steve@atlantabaseballtalk.com

    Dammit. Phils win.
