    4-0 Braves and we’ll need 4 more runs with Lowe out there off to a poor start.

    Way to go offense! So how long til lowe coughs this lead up?

    When DOB posts “perfect inning for Lowe” I cry happy tears. Go Braves!!

    Walker Says:

    This lead should be good enough and we had a pretty good streak going until Hanson got pounded.

    From Elias: The Braves had an early 5-2 lead before dropping a 11-7 decision to the Mets. Before Saturday night, the Braves had won the last 51 games in which they had owned a lead of at least three runs, dating back to September of last season. That had been the longest current streak for any major-league team and it was the second-longest the Braves have had since moving to Atlanta in 1966. (The Braves won 60 straight games with leads of three-or-more runs during the 2002 season.)

    Freddie has a one game hitting streak :)

    Got a ball in the air w/ Bourn on 3rd and less than two outs (with a man on first – i.e. potential double play). Something that Prado should have done with a man on 3rd and NO OUTS!

    #24 – I know it’s easy for me to say, but I disagree. Heyward is not Frenchy. All we know is that he’s a potential superstar. With Frenchy he obviously had huge holes in his swings and was more of an athlete than a baseball player. That’s not the case with Heyward. Which, again, is why he should be in there.

    I could not be more excited about the Uggla hit streak, by the way.

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Some of the umpires are getting WAY TOO BIG of an ego!

    What an a-hole!

  10. 35
    Steve Says:

    #33 – Yeah. Pretty reprehensible.

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Can you tell by the announcers choice of words that they “know” about Proctor?

    “Good night for Christian Martinez. Now Proctor will try to finish this off without any drama”… How funny!

  12. 37
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    With a 5 run lead, when Proctor walked the first man, I would have pulled him. NO EXCUSE for walking a man in the ninth with a FIVE RUN LEAD!!!

  13. 38
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    3-2 to the first batter

    3-2 to the second batter

  14. 39
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    How can you pitch from behind with a FIVE RUN LEAD?

  15. 40
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Well, at least now Kimbrell can get a save…

  16. 41
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Well, I guess if he hits him it save a few pitches…

  17. 42
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    2-0 to batter three

    3-2 to batter four

    Maybe this outing will get Proctor off the team… Probably not, but hope springs eternal…

  18. 43
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    I never thought I would say this:

    “How long before Linebrink is back?”

  19. 44
    Walker Says:

    I have a feeling Proctor knows something scandalous and is blackmailing Frank Wren. Frank just tell Mrs. Wren the truth so you can just release him. LOL

    On another note, Joe DiMaggio here we comes Uggla.

  20. 45
    Walker Says:

    *here comes Uggla

    Mark in Memphis Says:


    I now think EVEN LESS of the home plate umpire now that I have heard that is the FIRST TIME Freddie has been thrown out of a game at ANY level… IN HIS ENTIRE LIFE!

    Jo-Bu Says:

    MLB umpires certainly have a racket going on. Talk about job security.

    35: Joe Simpson made another statement that I cannot recall at the moment that was sort of a dig at Proctor.

    I really don’t think Proctor will be on the team if we make it to the post or maybe even in September. The Braves eventually did the right thing with KK and I think they’ll do the right thing with Proctor as well.

    Nate Says:

    The Heyward debate is a good one, but man, Georgie is bringing a lot to the table. He’s so much better and cheaper than McLouth. Good find.

    john j Says:

    #43 LOL, If Wren CAN get those pictures back, Proctor is GONE. Time to get a look at some Gwinnett pitchers who can throw strikes with a 5 run lead. There has to be someone better.

    Steve Says:

    #48 – I’d rather just bring Gearrin back up.
