Who is the last true impact player the Braves have acquired? Javy Vazquez? We’ve seen a bunch of new Braves since he came (and went). And let’s face it, Javy had a career year or we’d have to go further back.
That makes sense. I did not see the whole play. I looked up to see the drop and the interpreter clap. I tend to look away when guys like Pujols, Howard, or Dunn come up against us. I used to do the same for Bonds in his day as well. Those guys will always kill us. You can put Uggla on that list, too.
I think we used up all of our luck during that 99 game stint in 1st. Deflected double play with RISP, Jason getting hit by that ball, a questionable K-zone in the bottom of the 2nd, Gonzo not being able to get to that liner… what has happened to this team? BTW, we’ve now been shutout in 18 straight innings by the Natinals pitching.
That was obviously not Maxwell’s first hit of the year. I hope Chip retires after this year too. When he said “Maxwell House, good to the last pot” after that kid’s slam, I was hoping someone might walk in the booth and beat the crap out of him on the air. Maybe we can pay the organ player to do it?
The guys don’t know they just got 3 outs. WTF, guys? It is painfully obvious that these guys aren’t focused. If only we had a manager willing to do something about that. This is why players love Bobby. He will literally let them show up and just go through the motions, as long as they are on time to the park, are friends with one another, and show a robotic demeanor on the field.
