Show #163: A Middling Week for the Braves

The good and bad with the offense.  Hanson and JJ in the post season.  Faith in Fredi.  And the NLCS Hope Meter.

    Question: does Bourn steal on his own, or does Fredi decide when to send him? Perhaps this is just a good dose of Fredi-hating, but I’m seriously wondering if Fredi’s not at least partly to blame for Prado’s two GIDPs when Bourn is on first.

    And how many times have we seen Fredi hit-and-run when slower runners are on base? And it seemingly never happens when Bourn’s on? Is that just me?

    The hit and run with slow runners on base thing has been maddening all season.

    I think Bourn is free to steal whenever he wants, btw.

    David Says:

    Wow — a bases loaded situation for Alex Gonzalez and he doesn’t pop out?

    Nate Says:

    He walked Freddie to get to our pitchers.

    #29 — hilarious!

    I really don’t want to complain after we just tied it up, but that inning was maddening.

  6. 31
    Nate Says:

    Yeah, and that inning sucks even worse now.

  7. 32
    Steve Says:

    Hell. Is it all really falling apart now after we tied it up? Again, we look overmatched.

  8. 33
    Nate Says:

    There is a huge difference in the demeanor of the players when they show the 2 dugouts. I don’t think this team fears the Braves at all.

  9. 34
    Nate Says:

    It’s like when they show the 2 sidelines of a blowout in football, and we’re only down by 2.

  10. 35
    Nate Says:

    So, do you use 3 PHers next inning? At least 2, right?

  11. 36
    Steve Says:

    I don’t get Christian coming in here. Why not O’Ventbrel tonight? Let’s freaking win this game.

  12. 37
    Nate Says:

    I guess we’re already resting Moylan, too…

  13. 38
    Steve Says:

    #35 – Obviously he’ll pinch hit for the pitcher. If they don’t pinch hit for Georgie, I’ll be so pissed.

  14. 39
    Nate Says:

    It looks like no one is warming up, either.

  15. 40
    Steve Says:

    I haven’t been this mad about a game in a long, long time. I feel like Curt right now.

  16. 41
    Nate Says:

    Is it just me, or is not making the pitching change making the inning go on longer? I am confused Joe and Chip.

  17. 42
    Nate Says:

    I’m going out on a limb here, but if a reliever is facing is 8th batter of the inning he’s been in too long.

  18. 43
    Nate Says:

    Constanza is up. Someone call Steve and make sure he is alright.

  19. 44
    Curt Says:

    I wish I felt like me right now. Why the hell do you pitch Martinez there? And leave him in to give up 2 runs? Insane. Martinez is the long inning guy, or the blowout game guy. Not the “hold them right there” guy.

    And the Constanza experiment really needs to end. If he is going to flip flop guys, at least let it be Diaz and not Constanza.

    And Raul Ibanez? Again? Is it a good sign when there 5 beats our 1? And there 5 has been getting slapped around recently?

    This game sucks. I hate the Phillies.

  20. 45
    Curt Says:

    ‘their’

  21. 46
    Curt Says:

    Heyward can strike out looking bad

  22. 47
    Nate Says:

    Will the games at Turner in September cost the same as the games during Spring Training? Talk about running a team terribly…

  23. 48
    Steve Says:

    #42 – Funny and sad.

  24. 49
    Nate Says:

    #48, Get Ham to give me the address of the guy who owns “The Book” and maybe I can write him a letter to add that for Fredi in 2012.

    Curt Says:

    Hey, they’re mocking us with the chat. How clever and original. Next, say Larry when Chipper bats.
