    Walker,

    u r right on! Knock on wood to avoid injuries (no depth) and hope that we can find a dependable veteran or two for the bench. Pitching should hold up.

    Walker Says:

    What a comeback!

    I could kiss David Ross!

    Ridiculous

    Adam Says:

    I blame McClouth

  6. 106
    Curt Says:

    As you should

    Kate Says:

    Why pitch to Kemp with first base open?

    Steve Says:

    Another big gut punch. As it’s the most recent, it feels like the worst.

    Hey guys anybody else starting to feel we’re 2 bats short on the bench. Young and Conrad just aren’t cutting hit with the bats. Today we sit a slumping Heyward and get nothing from young. I don’t think we are as deep on the bench as we first hoped.
    Hey Curt do you have the AAA numbers on Ramirez?

  10. 110
    Kate Says:

    Brandon – Ramirez is hitting .235 with 3 HR and a .278 OBP. Schafer is hitting .283 with a .365 OBP. Mather is hitting .304 with a .333 OBP.

    Is it just me or is it getting less and less early?

    Curt Says:

    It must be April, because the Braves suck

    Nate Says:

    Well, we didn’t hit anything in this last series if it wasn’t the 9th inning. Unless Bob Gibson or Maddux are going for you every day, you’re probably going to have a bad 4 games. This series represented what the Braves have been doing in the postseason and regular season every year except for 95: hitting nothing against good pitching. It seems like our team uses good opposing pitching and defense as am excuse ALL THe TIME. STEP UP. SOMEONE. These guys make way too much money for the excuses they lob out there. Grow a pair and hit the ball. There I said it. It’s still April, but the baseball the Braves play right now is boring and depressing. Aren’t these guys paid anywhere from 6 figures to millions to hit tough pitching? Man up. Somebody. Please. I know I’m getting mad over what is said in cliche postgame interviews, but it’s literally all we have. Besides terrible, unenthusiastic play from overpaid athletes.

    Nate Says:

    Maybe there’s a reason Matt Young never made the majors until now?

  15. 115
    Nate Says:

    He’s like Marcus Giles without the Juice. Again.

  16. 116
    Nate Says:

    I’m going to the Crads/Braves series with over 20 members of my family from STL. I need us to start playing better immediately.

  17. 117
    Curt Says:

    I love the Crads

  18. 118
    Leah Says:

    117 made me laugh.

    brandon Says:

    Thanks Kate it looks like we need to bring up some bench help anything

  20. 120
    Ron Says:

    SOMEONE needs to step up in San Francisco or this could get uggla, I mean ugly.

  21. 121
    Ron Says:

    This was a big Kingston Trio hit and it is was sung again in Los Angeles: Where have all the hitters gone? Long time passing. Where have all the hitters gone, long time ago? Where have all the hitters gone? Braves have lost them one by one. When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?

    Hope the Braves start writing better verses in San Fran.

    Steve Says:

    Loved #115.

    New series. If we start hitting, this all starts to fade away. But I’m not real optimistic now. And scared about Hanson tonight. Which Hanson will it be?

  23. 123
    Eric Says:

    Wouldn’t be surprised to see Mather up with the Braves when they option this kid Cory Gearrin back to Gwinnett after the road trip.

  24. 124
    Walker Says:

    Can Gonzalez leave Heyward alone? Last year they said he was too patient, now they are saying he’s not patient enough. Stop over analyzing and messing with this kids head. Its called a slump. Gonzales needs to be criticizing Uggla. Heyward isn’t getting paid 13 million dollars.

    Leah Says:

    Watching Rowand bat is…well, just unpleasant.
