    @ Steve

    I ask you, who is a better pitcher? Forget their last 8 appearances. Who do you trust with the game on the line? What will their stats average out to at the end of the year?

    Marte? I smell runs.

    Bubdylan Says:

    I take it back. I forgot Heyward already used his hit for tonight.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Hi, my name is Jason Heyward, and I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever shorten my humongous swing. So stop throwing it inside. I can’t hit it there. This message brought to you by: Stubbornness. Because adjustments, like injuries, are irrelevant.

    In my best Tommy Wiseau voice, “Oh HI Venters!”

    Steve Says:

    @51 – I just don’t think its that cut and dry. It was not that long ago this season EOF was really cringe worthy, too.

  7. 57
    Bubdylan Says:

    Wow, Holliday got Venters’ best sinker of the night; 94 mph at the knees.

  8. 58
    Bubdylan Says:

    We’re gonna need a bigger lead.

  9. 59
    Bubdylan Says:

    Constanza looked awful there. Yeesh.

  10. 60
    Bubdylan Says:

    What was that, five pitches on those three outs? Six maybe? Nice approach.

  11. 61
    David Says:

    I think that Constanza was taking hitting tips from Hinske on that at-bat

    Bubdylan Says:

    On the happy side, Bryce Harper just struck out swinging at a ball at his eyes with the bases loaded and one out. They failed to score. 2-1 Miami, bottom 8th.

  13. 63
    Walker Says:

    Durbin being bad, which he always has been his whole career is not the same as O’Flaherty’s slump.

  14. 64
    Walker Says:

    Players often regress to their mean. Who knows when Durbin’s luck will run out?

  15. 65
    Bubdylan Says:

    Come onnnnnnn, Kimbrel. No whammy, no whammy, no whammy ….

  16. 66
    Bubdylan Says:

    What a last pitch.

    Finally!

  17. 67
    David Says:

    A win! Nice!

    Never doubt Randall “Stopper” Delgado

  18. 68
    Steve Says:

    What a welcome sight. So good to win.

  19. 69
    Curt Says:

    Good to come home from Sea World and see a nice score on the board. But I don’t like the Braves.

    Nate Says:

    Shaun, I was joking. I thought it was funny that Frank said that in light of our recent discussions. I know you don’t think he’s the best player ever, but a lot of the hype surrounding his arrival was something like Roy Hobbs in the Natural. You could almost here the theme music to The Natural when Jason hit his first HR off Zambrano.

  21. 71
    Nate Says:

    *hear

    Me fail English? That’s unpossible.

  22. 72
    Walker Says:

    Great win

  23. 73
    Steve Says:

    @69: that’s true, Curt. Why do you do the show?

  24. 74
    Bubdylan Says:

    Braves-haters. The whole lot of ya. Cept for Frank. And Curt.

  25. 75
    Bubdylan Says:

    If I’m looking at the box score right, only 25 of the Spurs 91 (so far) points have come from starters. I used to love watching the Spurs; I didn’t know they were still doing anything.
