    #24, sorry, never suggested Bourn should swap batting order with Constanza. Point was that maybe Constanza has earned a spot at the top while he is hot. Could Bourn bat second? Or, Bourn first, the “kid” second?

    Anne, #26, Braves shirt in SF is OK but don’t do it at Dodger stadium if you travel down south. Think twice about Oakland also; I know from experience but that was a NFL game with this dummy wearing a Broncos shirt. I’m sure the baseball fans have twice the IQ of the Raiders fans so it may be safe.

    John J – yes, and helps that I’m in the east bay where they care a bit more about the A’s. I’m pretty good at ducking.

    Great article Steve. I kinda wish I hadn’t read it though. The writer scared the hell out of me when he was talking about Fredi Gonzalez.

    “The playoffs scream out for creative managing, starting pitchers brought on in relief, ace pinch-hitters coming up early in a game when a high-leverage situation warrants it, closers used in nontraditional roles. Bruce Bochy’s outmanaging Ron Washington wasn’t the only reason the Giants beat the Rangers in the World Series last fall. But it did help. Braves fans better hope their team’s playoff life doesn’t come down to a managerial battle of wits.”

    Just heard on the news that the Sinatra Estate wants in on the fate of the Dodgers.

    Hello from Bub who’ll return when his life settles.

    Oh dear…another blow to the Giants. Hate it for them but if the baseball gods deem it so then glad it’s happening in Atlanta. Poor injured pitcher…

    Constanza! So many things go wrong over the long season, it is nice to see a positive surprise that nobody expected. If his success lasts for another month or one more at bat, this is fun to watch.

    No idea Nate had to have surgery.

    Glad we didn’t trade Delgado!

    So I just checked in. Is Delgado as good as the box score?

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Somebody better put a ball on Ross’s ankles at his next plate appearance…

    Let’s see him dance then…

  15. 65
    Leah Says:

    Come on Ross…hit your homer and make your way around the bases. Mercy. No need to gloat. I hope he gets plunked.

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Think Eric is pissed after his last outing????

  17. 67
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    @65

    I don’t want them to hit him, Leah… just throw a ball at his ankles and watch him dance then…

    I wouldn’t mind seeing a “face plant” as well… :)

    Leah Says:

    If we’re winning by a few runs and no one’s on base I hope Kimbrel pegs him right in the kidney. That was completely classless. I still see him in teal blue and it makes me grouchy.

    Leah Says:

    Yeah…take that Cody…

    Leah Says:

    Oh Marteeen…I so was celebrating.

    Leah Says:

    Walk Chip to get to Gonzalez…Bochy is smart.

    Pure Says:

    Why cant Alex just strike out?

    Yoda Yelling Says:

    WORTHLESS GONZALEZ IS

    john j Says:

    That 10th was handled very well. Freeman wanted to make up for yesterday. I missed the play. did he think his run meant something?

  25. 75
    David Says:

    I know that this was sooooo 10th inning, but did y’all hear Chip or Joe say, when Alex Gonzalez was up, that he’s a hard man to double up? I guess that the other 14 times he’s grounded into a DP this year was sheer defensive luck.
