    Constanza? Be nice to have Sutton right about now. Wren’s scorecard taking a hit this summer.

    You Shakespeare types (Anne?) must see the Ralph Fiennes directed Coriolanus that hit DVD/ Blu-ray today. Superb stuff.

    Bub – thanks for the reminder. AND thanks for writing “anus” in a way that it’s not filthy at all.

    Frediot finally takes Pastornicky out the 2 hole.

    I love that tweet about Craig Kimbrel. It would be so nice to see him in a crucial situation from the 6th to 8th innings. Why does our best relief pitcher have to only pitch with a lead in the 9th inning? Dumb rules.

    YAY UGGLA!!

    Walker Says:

    4 run lead. Must win

    Uggs! Great to see on the big screen at the trivia bar. Go Braves!!

    Dear Randall, please stop wetting yourself and completely abandoning your plan each time there is the slightest threat by the other team. Yours, Atlanta.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Uh oh, base runner. Here comes a four pitch walk to Holliday….

  11. 36
    Bubdylan Says:

    Or a double play! Nice job, Delgado!

    Bubdylan Says:

    Well, here comes Fredi’s pitcher-bats-eighth wet dream: Constanza leading off. Curious to see how it goes.

  13. 38
    Bubdylan Says:

    Single! So far, so good. Please don’t run on Molina…

    Steve Says:

    See, I’ve always loved that Constanza kid!

    Steve Says:

    Of course, this will only embolden Fredi when it comes to Jose in the future.

  16. 41
    Bubdylan Says:

    And who wouldn’t??

  17. 42
    Bubdylan Says:

    I know, right? Probably see Constanza pitching out of the bullpen in this game.

  18. 43
    Walker Says:

    Please Delgado don’t waqk anybody in the 6th inning. Wait until the 7th so Fredi wont bring in Durbin. Too Late

  19. 44
    Bubdylan Says:

    Go get ‘im, Fredi. Game’s too important.

    Walker Says:

    RULE #1,233 of the Baseball Book: You can only bring in your best relievers in the 7th, 8th, and 9th innings.

  21. 46
    Walker Says:

    Rule #1,234: Never ever bring in your best reliever unless you have a lead of 3 runs or less in the 9th and ONLY in the 9th.

  22. 47
    Walker Says:

    Rule #1,235: You can bring in your best reliever (closer) in a blowout to get some work but never in a crucial situation in the 7th or 8th innings.

  23. 48
    Steve Says:

    Over their last 8 appearances, Durbin has been better than EOF, fwiw.

  24. 49
    Bubdylan Says:

    We sure as hell better win this game because we just signed on for a week solid of the Durbin-Constanza show.

  25. 50
    Bubdylan Says:

    Over his last 38 appearances, Cory Gearrin has been 294 times better than anyone in our bullpen not named Kimbrel.
