Show #179: The Braves Turn It All Around

The 5 game win streak.  Chipper’s impact. Heyward’s emergence and the 4th outfielder spot.

    Hey Leah. The Smoltz retirement night is a definite maybe for me. I would be there without question except it’s one of my boys’ birthday weekend (one who has no interest in going to a game) and I’ll have family in town, etc. etc. So, I won’t know for until it gets closer to the game.

    Also, give us another chance on Twitter. We monitor it much more closely than in the past. It’s really not a bad way to communicate with us.

    Chipper goes deep here.

    I don’t know if this is average, a few, or a lot, but out of Cahill’s 94 pitches tonight, he had only 13 that were called for strikes. Seems like the Braves are going up there being very smart about their pitch selection.

    This week has been incredible. Watching our offense reminds me of how the Phillies have been over the last couple of years, and how their hitters would never give away at-bats. Everything’s clicking, and we’re doing so good that we’re not even giving Fredi the option of putting on the hit-and-run!

    In non-Braves news, I went and saw “Cabin In the Woods” today. If you’re a horror movie fan, I think you’ll appreciate this one a lot.

    OK, aside from being 100% wrong, I still feel good about my prediction.

    David – I really want to see Cabin in the Woods. I’m a big ho for Joss Whedon.

    Will, thanks for the anecdote. Poking around online, mystery kidney pain happens now and again. I hope I escape as luckily as you and it stays away.

    7 runs. Crazy stuff.

    Bubdylan Says:

    #128, first paragraph, I’m with you. The approach is almost more exciting than seeing all the runs. The marks of a smart offense, to me, are patience and going opposite field. They’re a clinic on both right now.

    Since David brought up the movies…has everyone seen The Artist? Awesome.

    For the record, gall stones have me a lot of problems in the lower back. Nothing constant. Just random flairs. With lots of pain.

    Curt Says:

    Remind when the Smoltz thing is?

    Leah, drove my sister to B-ham to catch the Artist in a great theater. Loved it. Will get it on Blu-ray the day it hits the shelves. Maybe a bit too heavy on the Singin’ in the Rain rip-off dept at the end, but I forgive it completely. A wonderful movie experience.

    Speaking of Blu-ray, if any of you have made that jump, Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol is a must-have. Leah, Brad Bird from Iron Giant, Ratatouille, and the Incredibles directed it.

    Someone needs to tell their 3Bman to stop getting tattoos.

    Bubdylan Says:

    lol, every time I look up, the Dbacks are finished hitting again and the Braves are on base. It’s like Opposite World.

    Leah Says:

    MI is on the movie night list. Just loved The Artist!
    Curt, I believe June 8th. Or maybe the 6th but I think the 8th. If only there was some sort of electronic data base we could turn to and find out. Bugger.

    Leah Says:

    When was the last time Kimbrel pitched? I know we don’t to over use him but I hope he remembers how.

  15. 140
    Bubdylan Says:

    Phillies have bases loaded and none out. If anyone wants side entertainment, this should be good. I predict only one run will come out of it. Their offense is miserable.

    Leah Says:

    Chipper and Freddie need some teeth whitening strips. That’s my only comaint in 7 2/3 innings.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Andrew Cashner’s hitting 100 MPH with his 4 seamer. Yeesh. Never heard of him.

  18. 143
    Bubdylan Says:

    Poop. Phillies are scoring. Oh well, guess it can’t be a perfect evening.

  19. 144
    Leah Says:

    Freddie has figured it out y’all.

  20. 145
    Bubdylan Says:

    Freeman’s now a hit away from batting .300, that was quick.

    Adam Says:

    We look so freaking good.

  22. 147
    Bubdylan Says:

    Bases loaded, none out, Jason Heyward up. Any predictions? I dare not.

  23. 148
    Leah Says:

    For the love…no more scoring. Sleepy.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Tyler Pamperstinky is up now. Good feeling’s gone. 🙁

    #148 Dead to me.
