    GBraves lose 3-2. Impressed by pitcher Juan Abreu. Bobby’s kid or nephew??

    Anyone heard an update on Schafer?

    DOB tweeted: Schafer is undergoing a CT scan as well as an x-ray – won’t have update until tomorrow.

    Speculations? Worst case scenario? Besides Schafer taking a ball to the face, it was a good night for baseball. Braves win, Phillies lose a heartbreaker to the Pirates, Marlins lose to the Brew Crew, and Chicken Dinner is Killing it. Although, you know how I hate to brag.

    All – saw a middle of the night tweet that Schafer’s nose is broken. You’ve got to figure that means the DL. Say hello to Matt Young/Joe Mather: your new CF platoon!

    Great win last night. Looked like another one of those games that represent the worst of this team and then they turned it around. I hope it can be one of those turning point games.

    Did anyone watch the Sports South post game show where Gant came right and said there’s no way you replace Schafer with McLouth. I don’t think he even realized how definitive he was being.

    I like this comment someone made on ajc.com about Uggla and Wren.

    “No one can blame Frank Wren if Dan Uggla turns out to be a big bust that were stuck with for 5 seasons, thats for sure. Maybe 5 years was a bit much but he was going to get that from someone anyways. Talking about a all out every play player, that has been one of the most durable players of the past 5 years. The most powerful 2nd baseman in all of baseball with consistant power numbers year in year out. No one seen this bad of a slump or downfall or whatever you wanna call it it coming. 95% of us bloggers would have signed him to that same extension.. In order to keep great players you have to offer them long term deals, everyone knows that usually those last few years on a deal arnt as great because of decline but thats the price you pay to keep them around threw there great years.”

    So they said today that it is a sinus bone and no DL for Schafer, yet. He might wear some sort of extra protection on his helmet. McLouth hasn’t even been hitting down at Disney, so I don’t think he is in any plans right now.

    Quick comment on the last show – I’m interested in the blurb about McCann’s innings.

    Apparently, he is leading NL catchers in innings played. Well he should be, because he is always one of the best offensive catchers. BUT we also have the best backup catcher in baseball! Rossy always seems to have a hand in winning, why doesn’t he get more opportunity? I know we have serious trouble scoring runs, but if you look at the numbers, we really haven’t lost anything by putting Rossy in to start. Give McCann a few more days off!

    Dillon “Gee, it sucks I pitch for the Mets.”

    Dillon “Gee, I hate my last name.”

    Dillon “Gee, Dan Uggla couldn’t hit a 400 pound woman sitting on a tee.”

    Corny I know

    A nice feature on Venters:

    #112 – Good stuff.

    What a forgettable game tonight. Uggla got a hit though. I’m sure that’s the hit that gets him going. Not really.

    uggla will hit in 56 straight games. bet on it.

    comment on #109. Sometimes an executive makes a well thought out decision and it blows up on him and sets the company back. No one cares that it was an unexpected outcome. It is called “accountablity” and the executive’s career is impacted. Honestly, I don’t believe too may fans would have wanted to make Uggla their top paid player when the money was going to be needed to keep our younger players (JJ, McCann, Prado, Hanson, Kimbrel, etc.). The Braves are managed on a tight budget and have a strong core for the future; money should not be wasted on .258 career hitters after they have their career year for another team. Tight budgets mean you manage conservatively. “no one can blame Wren”? Sure we can; it’s a free country.

    “The lefty/righty catching platoon of Brian McCann and David Ross has been the NL’s best this season.”

    Nate Says:

    Our pitching depth in the minors is just silly. Enough arms to go around and then some. Also, They should teach Mauro Gomez how to play 2nd, 3rd, and LF.

    New show tonight?

  19. 119
    Steve Says:

    #118 – Yes, new show tonight. It’s our 150th. We have lined up a special Braves player from the ’90′s. Hopefully, it comes to pass – you never know. But we are CRAZY excited about it.

    KLESKO!! Tonight?

    Walker Says:

    @ 116 – John J

    The bottom line is that if the braves didn’t acquire Uggla in the winter, they would not have come into this season with a chance at the World Series. In order for the Braves to win a Championship Dan Uggly needs to do what he’s done the last 5 years. He’s only 31 and he didn’t change leagues. The only thing I can think of is that he’s playing for a team that’s expected to win. He would have a heart attack if he played in New York.

    Shaping up like one of “those” Hudson starts. Hang on.

    Danny Bautista?

    Tony Graffanino?

    Please Please let it be Tony Graffanino (Sarcasm)
