    I thought we were supposed to try to win.

    Walker Says:

    Why Livan and not Kimbrel?

  3. 78
    Walker Says:

    WHY Fredi?

  4. 79
    Walker Says:

    Fredi, your closer is your best pitcher out the pen. Use him.

    Nate Says:

    Why not just limit Beltran to 1 base after he’s raked it all night?

  6. 81
    Walker Says:

    Even Livan was surprised at himself.

  7. 82
    Nate Says:

    I don’t think anyone was more surprised by that outcome than Livan.

    Walker Says:

    Somebody tweeted:

    “I’m still not convinced Livan isn’t a double agent for the rest of the NL East.” LOL

    We will never make it to the 12th.

    Eat alot and throw slow and you too can be a Major league pitcher.

    Walker Says:

    Pretty swing Jason.

    My sister said someone got ejected earlier in the game. Anybody know who? Just got home from taking my daughter to Wicked. It was awesome by the way.

    Hinske got ejected

    Leah Says:

    #87 made me lol.

    Leah Says:

    Wow. Cannot believe that just happened. Feels good to beat the Cards and I hope we sweeeeeep!

    Walker Says:

    This game showed why Heyward may be our most valuable player after Chipper. The ground he covered in RF tonight was amazing. And then a 2-run game winning homer. VALUABLE.

    huge win

    Steve Says:

    I’m with you all that you should brought out Kimbrel before Livan, but don’t you have more confidence in Livan after last night?

  21. 96
    Leah Says:

    More confidence in Livan doing what? Just kidding. Sure…although he seemed more surprised at Freese hitting into the DP than anybody. Gotta work on his poker face.

    Fredi definitely has found favor with God. Apparently he’s been helping lots of old ladies cross streets or something. He puts in Livan with Beltran, Craig and Molina due up; the Cardinals load the bases with one out; and Livan gets out of it.

    Of course it works out, affirming to all the misguided out there that the way to go is to save your closer for a save situation in a road game that’s tied in the 9th inning or later.

    There are probably, what, two managers that do not manage their bullpens this way?

    I feel more confident with Livan in for an inning after the Braves have a lead than I do him pitching in a tie game.

  23. 98
    Shaun Says:

    O’Flaherty didn’t pitch in his customary 7th-inning role. Maybe Fredi was planning to give him the night off but couldn’t considering the circumstances. Or has Medlen jumped over him in the bullpen depth chart?

  24. 99
    Leah Says:

    So my level of “dorkishness” is about to be revealed. I’m watching last night’s archived game. Did you guys see the spot on Luis Salazar before the game? Pretty amazing.

    Leah Says:

    Oh Bryce Harper.
