    175 — I know! I saw that too. Last inning, right after Hinske flew out to left, they showed Heyward out at second base, and he kicked the bag in what looked like frustration and anger. Different circumstances, but still that same fire.

    Also, I just saw a stat on the bottom of MLB Network that said that tonight’s quality start for RA Dickey (vs. Philly) was his 14th consecutive QS, longest active one in the majors.

    Absolutely! Don’t mind a little anger/frustration…at all!

    I’m glad that our fans boo Ryan Braun every time he does anything.

    Great to see that huge crowd turn out. And great that the Braves won for them.

    Great to see some offense. More please.

    Great to have something to watch on a Saturday morning.

    I just skipped the part when the brewers went from 2 to 8.

    Anne: Bill Bartholomay the guy that brought the Braves to Atlanta threw out the first pitch. I get that he’s more than integral and everything, but a pretty boring choice.

    It was a strange game. No energy when JJ started giving up bombs, then the place went nuts as we batted around in the 5th (Bourn with 2 hits in the inning, Marteeen with 2 outs in the inning), then deflated again, then elated again in the 8th and finishing off the 9th. The place was exhausted when it was all over.

    AND – the scoreboard was a complete disaster for the first few innings. Wrong pictures, wrong names – the field level screens (with the current pitcher’s stats weren’t on at all), it was nothing short of embarrassing. I mean, I think they had this date on their calendars for a while now.

    steve- did it sell out?

    Leah Says:

    Haha…did y’all see Thole’s bone headed base running? Friday 13th indeed.

    Steve Says:

    Will: it was a sellout and they started selling standing room only tix Friday morning. That said, there were scattered empty seats around the stadium. It didn’t quite look like the sellouts in the last playoff series against the Giants.

    Steve Says:

    Was Chipper in the dugout last night for the game? Was he freaking out and doing big congratulations to everyone after the big hits?

    Anne Says:

    I read C Jones wasn’t at the park – gettin’ drained.

  13. 188
    Steve Says:

    He was there. He was part of pregame intros.

    Steve Says:

    Anyone have a recommendation for a reliable website (that’s not mlbtv, that is) where you can watch Braves games live?

    Kate Says:

    Chipper was in the trainers room getting his knee drained during the game.

    Try googling “mlb network live streaming”.

    YAY! A Braves started recorded a out in the sixth inning!!!

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Back at .500 baby!

    I’m starting to think Kimbrel just likes the drama.

    Pure Says:

    Kimbrel had it all the way.

  23. 198
    David Says:

    Not that any of the wins so far have been “good,” but tonight’s may have been the best of the four. Last night’s was great, but it shouldn’t have gotten so close after we were up by 5 runs. Tonight, starting pitching and bullpen took care of it — even though it got really hairy at the end there.

    Fredi batting Freeman 3rd and Heyward 6th/7th continues to baffle me. I love Freeman, but Heyward is batting much better right now.

  24. 199
    Danny Says:

    I’ve decided Kimbrel needs a new song. I like Godzilla by Blue Oyster Cult.

    The home opener was exhausting but entertaining.

    Minor looks like a #2 pitcher when he is on.

    Walker Says:

    Yeah I agree. At first I understood it was to take pressure off of J Hey but now either Chipper or Jason needs to be hitting 3rd.
