    Would be funny if that locked Uggla in at the plate… :)

    What a game!!!! Wow, a nerve-wrackin’ heart racer. Great win.

    Netflixers, if you haven’t seen the documentary “Thin Blue Line” from the 80’s, you can stream it instantly. I was blown away. I’d always heard of it – the story of a man wrongly convicted of murder and subsequently set free b/c of a documentary made about him – but I wasn’t prepared for how artfully it was done. The ending sneaks up on you and you can’t believe what you’re seeing is even real. Human beings are freaking crazy.

    Is Leah around anywhere?

    Erol Morris (who made Thin Blue Line) is the best. You should watch “Vernon, FL”

    Awe…I do love it when you miss me. Leah is a working woman with little time for west coast games. Plus, I have a pinched nerve in my back which requires muscle relaxers and you know how that goes. I did enjoy the highlights from last night’s game immensely.

    Uggla looks WAY better at the plate in the highlight videos. Is he flailing in his other at bats? And McCann…HOLY COW!!!!

    Bub, I’m super bored at work so I might just check out “Thin Blue Line” and hopefully be able to catch the game this afternoon.

    I’m not able to comment often but I still keep up with the board.

    Oh…and Bub, I think you should know the chicks are STILL leading the Fantasy League.

    Leah* (compu-draft)

    Where is the MLB love for McCann. The guy is far and away the best catcher in baseball. It’s insane that he almost wallows in anonimity. Because why, he plays in a far-flung place like Atlanta? For a team with no history, like the Braves?

    Curt Says:

    Bub, did you ever get a chance to see “Lives of Others”?

  10. 110
    Leah Says:

    #108 Hey…whatever works. And what’s your excuse for Kate?

    Steve Says:

    I watched the first inning and had to go to bed after watching all of Monday night’s game.

    What a huge game. I mean, can anyone remember a game this season where we came back from a 3 run deficit? An impressive showing.

    And Bub – I agree on the Proctor comment. Please let’s DFA him and be done.

    Need some help from someone out there that is good with the stats. Where is a recap of pitcher’s inherited runners scored on a reliever? Also, is there a way to show how many times a pitcher finnished an inning they were in or how many times they were saved by another pitcher (runners kept from scoring)?

    The point is that Sherill’s era seems to be misleading and I would like to see it in another light. For instance, if he comes in with runners on and gives up hits so they score, he was not effective but it was the other guy’s era that goes up. Also, when he screws up with hits/walks and is replaced and the new reliever keeps those runs from scoring, Sherill’s era is saved. Maybe just my imagination and subjective opinion from watching just a few of his outings, but Sherrill doesn’t seem like the guy I want in there in tough situations but his stats are good. What am i missing?

    Curt Says:

    I like Sherrill more than Proctor or Linebrink, and their names were both impressive at times too. The last game I went to, Proctor gave up a 3 run homer and all of the runs went to Minor.

    Frigatedoc Says:

    Loving the chat folks….

    I can’t remember a game this season where after the Braves scored the first run I believed the would come back…. McCann is a beast. Two things I did see last night that concerns me is the downward spiral at the plate by Gonzalez, and Chipper looks tired…

  15. 115
    Steve Says:

    Frigatedoc – welcome to the board, by the way …

    I had that same thought last night (after the first stinking pitch). The Bravos record is so poor when they don’t score first this year.

    Steve Says:

    #112 john j: great questions. I don’t know, but I’ll do some looking tonight.

  17. 117
    Steve Says:

    Yikes. I didn’t remember that Lowe starts today. Would be a fine time for a bounce back start …

  18. 118
    Leah Says:

    #117 Again? Already? How did that happen?

  19. 119
    Frigatedoc Says:

    Did anyone see last night that the Braves were #2 in MLB for thier runs being generated by the home run? (The Yankees were #1 by the way).

    Also (I think) over the month of June the Braves had the lowest batting avg. (it was under .200)

    Interesting that Gonzalez is hitting is the #9 spot today.

  20. 120
    john j Says:

    Freeman the only one hitting today?

  21. 121
    john j Says:

    NO sooner said then………………………….

    Uggla and Conrad, back to back hits!!!

    Bubdylan Says:

    Curt, Lives of Others is not in position one in my queue.

    Suffice it to say my sleeping pattern is screwed. I just woke up.

    We’re leading with Lowe versus KF? Wow.

  23. 123
    Bubdylan Says:

    *is NOW in position one in my queue, lol…

    Wasssup with the King and these wild pitches? I’ll take ‘em!

    Wow, Frederick Freeman!!!!!
