    Walker Says:

    I agree with curt that Bobby needs to flip flop Heyward and Prado. Yet Bobby insist to keep heyward at 2. We really need to get prado going. McCann needs to step it up too.

    Will Says:

    Loved, and lost, or so they say.
    When usually its nothing surely you are happy it should be this way?
    I said, no. And then I shot my dog.

    Will Says:

    That was from the train on my iPhone…sorry for the maudlin outburst. I was just trying to get across how pissed off I am going to be if we get this close and then do nothing…

    I even mis-quoted Morrissey… its:

    Loved, and lost.
    And some may say “When usually its nothing surely you are happy it should be this way?”
    I say, “No.” And then I shot my dog.

    In case you missed:

    Diaz tripping Red Man on the field last night. Fantastic.

    Anne Says:

    Agreed, Steve – especially that it was Diaz, but great even if not.

    Hey, here’s a HILARIOUS e-mail I received from the Braves today: “I want to invite you to join us on Friday, October 1st for a special State of the Team Address with our Vice President and General Manager, Frank Wren. As the Braves prepare for the final home stand against the Phillies, who better to join us than the man who put this talented team together?

    We will be hosting this event at the Turner Field Right Field Patio, located outside the concourse at Section 129. Please remember that you will need a ticket to the game in order to attend this fun event. Food and refreshments will be available starting at 5:35 pm, while the main presentation will begin at 6:00 pm.”

    …yet for free food…hmmm.

    Just listened to the ernie johnson show , i could have sworn the show was called Atlanta BASEBALL talk not atlanta hawks/nba talk

  7. 32
    Curt Says:

    Thomas, I understand where you are coming from, but the guy hosts one of the biggest sports shows on TV. We would be remiss to not ask him some nba questions.

    Schmomas Says:

    i could have sworn the channel was called American BROADcasting Company, but most of the news anchors are men.

    Curt Says:

    The best part about Diaz last night was the huge cheer he got from the crowd and the golf cap tip he gave in response. One of the videos I saw had the Phillie fans chanting his name. Pretty hilarious.

  10. 35
    Steve Says:

    Curt – couldn’t agree more. And Diaz trying to hold back his smile after tipping his cap to the crowd. Just terrific.

    As for tonight, I feel like there’s still some possibility in this game.

  11. 36
    Curt Says:

    That makes one of us.

  12. 37
    Curt Says:

    I hate the Phillies

  13. 38
    Schmomas Says:

    Never understood all the Mike Minor hype anyways… 8)

    Bub Says:

    … uh, me either.

    Mara Wanna Says:

    Really wanted a win tonight. Not realistic but still…

  16. 41
    Steve Says:

    It sucks. It sucks. And it sucks. But, the team did not lie down and die tonight. They showed signs that this thing isn’t over and that we’re going to fight these last few weeks. And Derrek Lee is starting to catch up to the fastball.

  17. 42
    Curt Says:

    Look at this murderers row the Phils have had to face as they’ve run away with the division:

    For the eighth straight game, an opposing starting pitcher failed to pitch beyond five innings against the Phillies. Add Braves rookie Mike Minor to the esteemed list of Brandon Beachy, Yunesky Maya, Jordan Zimmermann, Jason Marquis, Jorge Sosa, Adalberto Mendez, and Andrew Miller.

    Timing is everything.

    Kate Says:

    Against the Braves those pitchers would go seven innings and be in position to win.

  19. 44
    Steve Says:

    Kate – good point.

    The other problem with this series is that the Phillies are better than us. I convinced myself otherwise heading into Monday, but when middle relief is the only part of your team that compares favorably …

  20. 45
    Bub Says:

    My favorite college football team is the best in the land. It’s a weird transition, going from the cringing, clawing, hope-against-hope feeling of watching your little baseball struggle against the odds to find a window for getting in with the big boys of the NL, knowing that even if they do, at the end of that road is the 250 million dollar Yankees… to watching your team sit atop all the headlines and dominate opponents, building an amazing team on (relatively) equal footing with the other teams in the country.

    I think baseball might be broken.

    Kate Says:

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

  22. 47
    Curt Says:

    How many guys does Diaz have to deck to start in front of AnKiel?

  23. 48
    Mara Wanna Says:

    How many double plays does Prado have to hit into before he gets a night off?

  24. 49
    Curt Says:

    The honeymoon is over, I see

  25. 50
    Anne Says:

    Why why why is McOut in Left Field? Are Diaz and Hinske and everybody else locked out of the ballpark? I meant to ask last night, but was too disappointed to type. Watching on the big screen at the trivia bar makes losses so much worse.
