Not sure I’ve been this impatient for a Braves game since opening day.
C’mon, Bravos. Knock Jeremy Guthrie into next week. Punish them for being Orioles, for being from smutty Baltimore, for firing Frank Wren, for wearing Halloween colors in the summertime. Show no mercy.
The only reason I really, REALLY wanted Jurrjens to pitch a no-hitter was because he leads the league in ERA and wins, but gets zero consideration for starting the all star game. That would have blown up in ESPN’s face if he had thrown a no no.
(I do think Halladay deserves the start, but it should at least be a discussion.)
Happy to be home after a GREAT game. Don’t know if you could hear/see on TV, but when the no-hitter was ended, the crowd liberally applauded JJ – many on their feet.
For the record, Ballpark Frank was crushed at that moment, that he could no longer lawd it over you guys that “he was there” when JJ pitched that no-hitter.
Ham – Struggs got a double…
SO GREAT to see both McLouth & Schaefer in the outfield. The Samson-like locks are workin’ well for Natey-boy.
Dan Uggla’s 2 WORST years were 2007 and 2009 were he hit .245 and .243 respectively. His hit totals were 155 and 137. He has 54 hits SO FAR this year. Anyone seeing him getting at least 83 hits for the rest of the season? He also has 12 HRs and 28 RBIs. If he had 0 HRs he would have 16 RBI (and that gives him a few for men on base when he hit a HR) for the first half of the season.
If he were playing the way he is capable of playing….even average. I wonder how many more wins the Braves would have?
On a high note…great game by the Braves tonight.
Wonder what neck muscle that Chipper injured getting hit in the back of the head. It was funny to see hit giving Derrick Lee a hard time for hitting him.
