    Pretty cool the Yankees became the 1st team in history to hit 3 grand slams in one game today.

    Ok now back to Braves talk.

    125 121 ,

    It isn’t fair to only mention Gonzo’s pop ups and weak ground balls. You have to recognize his hard ground balls that end in double plays or FC.

    Just being wise guy in #127. Overall, I am happy with Gonzo defense and when he hits 8th in the order. I don’t like it when he is moved up in the lineup after a good game as he then reverts to not hitting.

    I think it’s completely fair. If they’re hard hit at somebody, that’s a good thing.

    Bowman on McCann:

    McCann said he hadn’t felt comfortable since coming off the DL. Said something clicked in the batting cage this morning. Hell yeah. (I added that last part)

    Braves magic number is at 22.

    If I missed this thread, forgive me. How has Moylan done in Gwinnett?

  8. 133
    David Says:


    Moylan after 2 appearances: 2 ip, 1 hit, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts, 1 wild pitch, 1.50 whip and 0.00 era

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    I like the explaination about Moylan starting instead of relieving at Gwinnett…

    They don’t want someone like Delgado throwing a no-no and have to come to him at the beginning of the 8th saying “Good game but sorry kid, got to take you out… Moylan needs to pitch”.

    So (like most of us East Coasters) I get to experience a Hurricane AND an Earthquake in the same week. (And I am not talking about Hockey and Soccer teams.) Where the F do I live? Is this the end of times?

    Ham – isn’t the hurricane supposed right on you guys Sunday night? You’re going to need to go out and buy a generator so you’ll be available to record the show.

  13. 138
    Mark in Memphis Says:


    Generator 2nd… Store up FOOD & WATER first!

  14. 139
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    For all you Gonzo haters, you may hate next year as well…

    Steve Says:

    #137 – M in M, that’s where you’re wrong. The show is first. Sustenance is second. Priorities.

  16. 141
    Steve Says:

    Just read that NYC is shutting down mass transit at noon on Saturday. Can’t believe the 1pm game will be held.

  17. 142
    Jo-Bu Says:

    Sounds like it might be a rought Sunday on Lon-guy-land. Stay safe people.

  18. 143
    ham Says:

    Let’s see M in M says think about the family first and Steve says think about the show first. Who do I trust? Mark seems practical and fact driven and Steve is Steve. I need some time to decide.

    Any chance that we beat the Mets so bad tonight that they just give us the series?

  19. 144
    Steve Says:

    Ham – look in to your heart.

    So, they just officially cancelled Saturday, too. One freaking game this weekend! It’s like the stupid All Star Break again.

    #138, thx for the link

    Kate Says:

    People actually prepare for hurricanes? I grew up in Florida and we just sit out on the porch and watch.

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    @144 – you are welcome


    Ammo for all you Gonzo haters, by the same author:

    Steve Says:

    Um… it’s insane that McCann is sitting tonight. Three straight days off after tonight’s game. I mean, Fredi had that information prior to making the lineup.

  24. 149
    Walker Says:

    Why does this game feel weird?

  25. 150
    Steve Says:

    #148 – Because we’re losing to the Mets.
