    Bub Says:

    Well, good talking to you. Maybe the boys will get it together. Bad way to start a road trip. Headscratching decision. They really needed to turn their road woes around right here. Just can’t understand what they could have been thinking.

    See ya soon.

    I hate Bub’s studies.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    1 is a very small number.

    Curt Says:

    KK now 0-8 on the road. Good time to work him back into the rotation.

    Oh, and the Miller kid, who we just made look like Sandy Koufax? He’s a bum. First win in a year. Come tomorrow this time we are tied for first.

    Steve Says:

    Do you think the Braves give KK one more start? I kinda doubt it, given Bobby’s very un-Bobby like quote about him after the game last night. “That’s the worst I’ve ever seen him.” I was taken aback by Bobby’s honesty there.

    Curt – your #144 is so, so true.

  6. 181
    Curt Says:

    So they have Halladay vs Dave Bush

    we have Johnson vs the road version of JJ

  7. 182
    Mara Wanna Says:

    Afraid.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    #Braves lineup: 1. Infante 2B, 2. Heyward RF, 3. Prado 3B, 4. McCann C, 5. Lee 1B, 6. Cabrera LF, 7.Gonzalez SS, 8. Ankiel CF, 9. Jurrjens P

    Nate Says:

    KK started last night. Ankiel faced a lefty. Are we still in the playoff hunt? Are we 8 games out or something? Oh, Bobby is still our manager… now it makes sense. This is the same guy who thought pitching Lowe after Hudson was a good idea for the second half. How many of Lowe’s starts have we won in the second half? Logic is not in play folks.

  10. 185
    Curt Says:

    I’d be more excited if Lee could get a hit. Ankiel, for that matter

  11. 186
    Nate Says:

    This is the same guy who constantly pitched Maddux and Glavine on back to back days in the playoffs when he had Smoltz to stick between them. There’s a reason we’re 1-14 in the playoffs. Hell, I’m surprised he hasn’t started McOut or Glaus since they’ve been back.

  12. 187
    Bub Says:

    Oh, Curt. Ye of little faith. I ‘ve Bush over Halladay and Jurrjens over Johnson in a lead pipe cinch.

    Ahhhh. What a good day. Finished ALL my reading for the WHOLE weekend late last night and today until just now. Turn the computer on and the Braves are leading, the Phils are trailing, the Crimson Tide is kicking ass, and MY JACKSONVILLE STATE GAMECOCKS BEAT OLE MISS BABY!!!!! ON THE ROAD!!! I wonder if we’ll be meeting their bus back on campus. Maybe I’ll get out of the apt. and do something.

  13. 188
    Curt Says:

    Go Cocks

  14. 189
    Steve Says:

    The Braves are not only leading, but JJ (ours, not theirs) is getting done in high fashion on the road. With all the pitching woes this week, seeing JJ have an awesome road start is very welcome.

  15. 190
    Curt Says:

    Phils just scored 2 on a sacrifice fly

  16. 191
    Mara Wanna Says:

    boo Phillies. Yeah JJ! Go Braves!!!

  17. 192
    Curt Says:

    That was a great win

  18. 193
    Mara Wanna Says:

    Nice win.

  19. 194
    Steve Says:

    Great win, indeed. McCann stated it perfectly in his post-game interview when he called it the biggest win of the year. I have to agree.

    So, this really made me laugh. Reading thru DOB’s blog, someone posted the this morning (following a long night, as you can imagine, of KK getting absolutely crucified), this guy wrote, “All of that being said, I think KK filled in nicely for Lowe last night.”

    Steve Says:

    Not to take pleasure in others’ pain but … it’s the Mets, so what the hell?

    Nate Says:

    Steve, I almost can’t believe that’s real, but it’s the Mets. It is real. They are really horrible, and their payroll is 136 M. Awesome win tonight. Bub, I saw the end of the Jacksonville State game. Pretty cool. They got that last TD pass on a 4th down. Insane. Then the 2 point conversion. Great win. You must be pretty pumped after that and JJ’s great performance.

  22. 197
    Will Says:

    What is the Braves payroll now?

  23. 198
    Mara Wanna Says:

    Will, are we including our minor league bench players and our resident Japanese hurler we got just ’cause?

  24. 199
    Steve Says:

    Will – the numbers vary, but it’s around 90MM.

  25. 200
    Curt Says:

    So they say. More like 83 actually committed to the team.
