    Wow, I watch the end of Tron and all of a sudden we are down 2

    Turley Says:

    Well..Well…looks like we might get “Bad Hanson” today

    In all this time, through all these bumps in the road, I’ve never said a bad word about Tommy Hanson.

    But this early run business of his is about to get on my last nerve. Dude needs to man up and adjust.

    How about JJ yesterday…I think he got better as the day went on.

    Bubdylan Says:

    I agree, Leah. His last inning, against the heart of the order, his pitches looked great.

    Turley Says:

    Also agree…JJ looked smooth. Tommy no more runs ok?

    Bubdylan Says:


    How do you miss a bunt on a 82 MPH change up in the heart of the plate?

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Appropriate for Tommy Glavine to be calling the game for Tommay Hanson’s start… Neither one of them can get out of the first inning clean…

    Turley Says:

    Seriously…just strike out so Prado could have a chance with 2 outs and the bases juiced….

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Thank God we have… Heyward… in… the… two-hole…

  12. 162
    Bubdylan Says:

    Jason Heyward hidden injury discovery in 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 …

  13. 163
    Turley Says:

    Look at Jose Reyes…he makes the runs happen. Thats why we need a base stealer on the team…we need one very very bad.

    Ron Says:

    BOYCOTT! Get real, these are the Mets. When they face good pitchers, Braves have very little offense beyond Chipper and McCann. They can and will trade their youth for guys like Uggla and Gonzalez but they can’t keep the young guys because of budget constraints put on management by the parent company (Liberty Media of Colorado/they are Rockies fans). Best thing the Atlanta fans can do is stay home (Boycott the games) and start demanding new ownership.

  15. 165
    Bubdylan Says:

    Ron, I think the Boycott is already in effect…

    #165 – made me laugh. And may well be true.

    Pure – just read your inaugural post. Loved it. I wish you luck with the site. And we’ll link to you on the homepage in a day or two.

    Bubdylan Says:

    J Hey!!!!

    Of course, I can hear Frediculous (hey, I just made that up!) now saying “it was a solo – that’s why you bat him lower”)

    Turley Says:

    come on brooks…prove your worth

  20. 170
    Turley Says:

    Damnit!!! I guess that is brooks worth….I’m glad we have him on the team

  21. 171
    Bubdylan Says:

    Well, as grumpy as I am, it was a good at bat by Brooks. He came back from 1-2 to make it a full count against a good closer.

    The REST of the game, though, KILL IT WITH FIRE!

  22. 172
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    All hinges on the Brave’s pitchers inability to get down a bunt…

    Bases loaded, one run in, one out and WE DON’T SCORE!!! Then lose by ONE RUN…

    Walker Says:

    @ Bubdylan

    If Fredi says that he’s even more crazy than I thought. J Hey probably doesn’t get that pitch batting lower. The game of baseball is synonymous with the Butterfly effect. IF IF IF
