    Saw an interesting description of the Braves:

    Their “swing first, ask questions later” lineup has yielded a ton of homers and strikeouts but not much in between.

    Along with a “FINALLY!” escaping my lips… ;)

    @226, that definitely seemed to be the approach the guys were using yesterday.

    226, Mark, right on!

    A good example: Last Wednesday, Nicasio (Rockies) threw 53 pitches in first two innings. Instead of working the counts and getting to Rockies bullpen early, the Braves started swinging like crazy. Nicasio got 7 innings in and rockies got the win.

    Thank God for the wild card. We are going to need it this year guys. The Phillies and the Red Sox are extremely, extremely good teams. They are even better than I thought they were going to be. They never lose.

    #230 – Yeah, 5 straight for the Phillies, 7 of 9.

    Come on. Dontrelle Willis hasn’t been good in, what, 7 years?

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    What team with a big ballpark has someone we could use that could be had for Beachy?

    (unfortunately the facetiousness of my tone is not conveyed by text…)

    Curt Says:

    That was 2 of the worst ABs……………..
    Quick, swing at everything. We have a plane to catch.

    Leah Says:

    I hate that this game is on ESPN.

  12. 237
    Walker Says:

    I want Joe Morgan and Jon Miller back. I can’t listen to these haters anymore. Bobby Valentine just said Heyward should change the very swing that got him to the majors and almost won him the rookie of the year. Stupid..

  13. 238
    Leah Says:

    Bobby V absolutely hates the Braves. He shouldnt be allowed to call Braves games.

  14. 239
    Leah Says:

    Whatever happens before the trade deadline…we should probably keep McCann. Bobby V sounds so disappointed.

  15. 240
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Maybe that will shake Dontrell a bit… (hopefully)

  16. 241
    Curt Says:

    So does Hershiser. It’s like ESPN has a casting call for every jack hat I have hated in the history of baseball. When’s Leyritz getting his shot?

  17. 242
    Walker Says:

    Good job getting two runs back. All we need is a lead going into the 7th. Hopefully Willis has a Lowe type implosion.

  18. 243
    Steve Says:

    Wow. They actually just said something nice about McCann.

  19. 244
    Leah Says:

    Why can’t Prado’s play be excellent Prado Mr. Valentine?

  20. 245
    Walker Says:

    @ Curt

    Imagine a show called “Leyritz and Bell”. Where Jim Leyritz and Albert Belle discuss baseball, steroids, and being douche bags. I would watch it. Special Correspondent John Rocker.

  21. 246
    Leah Says:

    New show tonight?

  22. 247
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    And because of the positioning of his mouth, Valentine probably sounds stupid in the booth…

  23. 248
    Leah Says:

    “Based on the position of Freeman, he was probably safe on the play.”
    Classic Valentine


  24. 249
    Walker Says:

    Can he get any more biased. This is supposed to be a neutral telecast.

  25. 250
    Leah Says:

    Totally saw that swinging bunt coming. Hunker down Mr. Beachy.
