    That took a horrible hop at the last instant. Tough luck.

    Nate Says:

    Jason hit that ball really, really HARD.

    Steve Says:

    Heyward absolutely crushed it. I get an extra little perverse thrill when Frenchy watches, helpless, as a Heyward homer sails over his headd.

    Nate Says:

    Francouer just got an up close look at why he lost his job…

    Nate Says:

    Wow, Steve, same channel.

    Hi folks. Pleasure doing the interview with the fellas. Just wanted to correct myself, when I mentioned Dan Kolb, I meant to say Bob Wickman. My apologies to Kolb, in case this ever got back to him.

    It was Wickman who was thrown under the bus by teammates after he got released. Kolb was actually a good guy, just didn’t have a closer mentality. But Wickman?

    Uh, well….

    DOB – thanks for chiming in and setting the record straight.

    Nice to see JJ settle down there, by the way.

    Curt Says:

    It would be nice if Heyward got his power stroke back

    Mara Wanna Says:

    How good does a run against Acosta feel?

    Jimbo! Says:

    I like Brian McCann

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Double blast…had I known DOB was gonna grace us with his virtual presence I would have asked him how awesome he thinks the Avett Brothers are. On a scale from 1 to 1000. I bet he’d say 999.

    In other news…J-Hey is boosting my hope meter.

    To check out the radio appearance from this afternoon, go to, and scroll to the 1:13:11 mark.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Poetry…poor Frenchy.

    Seriously, Steve, nice job today.

  14. 39
    Steve Says:

    Mara – thanks, I appreciate it.

    Great win tonight. Beating up on an inferior pitcher and team like we should. And Heyward and Mac continue to heat up. Ah, what a few days and wins can do.

    Steve Says:

    The Phils are hitless through 5. Losing 2 – 0. C’mon Dodgers.

    MLB Network just did a live look in on the Nats/Marlins game in Florida. My God, there are about 8 people in that stadium tonight. Just crazy.

    Bub Says:

    Braves are 17-11 this month. .607 winning percentage. Who knew?

  17. 42
    Mara Wanna Says:

    Where you been Alicious?

  18. 43
    Bub Says:

    Schooooool. I can count in Babylonian and Egyptian, yo. If anyone asks you who the hell would base a number system on 60, the answer is the Babylonians would. No wonder that whole tower thing failed.

    Speaking of failed, Halladay loozed.

  19. 44
    Steve Says:

    3 games up. That jump from 2 to 3 feels much more comfortable. And gotta love Halladay taking a loss. And Kendrick is up next for the Phils, which is also hopeful.

  20. 45
    Mara Wanna Says:

    I can’t believe the Phillies didn’t score. What is going on with them?

  21. 46
    Steve Says:

    Howard can’t hit since returning from the DL. Ditto for Utley. Victorino is the only one hitting right now. For all the concern we have about our offense, it certainly has more productive hitters right now than Philly.

  22. 47
    Mara Wanna Says:

    Watching “Quick Pitch” on MLB and laughing at Meds. Did anybody else see his little dance after J-Hey’s hay maker over the RF wall? He did a little robot dance to the stadium music as Heyward runs the bases. Another reminder of the fun this team is having. The guys were watching him like he just lost a bet.

  23. 48
    Anne Says:

    Last night’s game was indeed poorly attended…and indeed great. I’ll be back there tonight, this time thumbs at the ready with ridiculous commentary. Yes – my thanks added to DOB for both the interview time and for popping up here in comments. I’ll try to watch my language.

  24. 49
    Mara Wanna Says:

    Today’s lineup (7:10 Peachtree TV): Infante 4 Heyward 9 Prado 5 Lee 3 Diaz 7 Gonzalez 6 Cabrera 8 Ross 2 Minor 1

  25. 50
    Steve Says:

    I’m here at the ballpark with a press pass today. There’s a stage set up behind the pitcher’s mound. I’ll try to find out what it’s about. I see Carroll Rogers here in the press box – no DOB on the beat today.

    Heading down to the clubhouse. More later here and on Twitter throughout the day and during the game.
