    I’m so glad they sent Medlen to the minors for 2 weeks so he could get stretched out to pitch in relief.

    Was it just me or was it that Livan, with a few exceptions, always seemed to have the Braves’ number when he played for the Nats. I had high hopes as well but knew that some how whatever magic he did have was only against the Bravos. Now give me my “Meds!”

    “It’s a little disheartening I guess because I went down there to be a starter,” Medlen said. “But things happen and they make plans and they don’t always work out. My entire career has been based on doing what I can for the team to help us win. Winning makes everything a lot better. I’ll do anything. I’m back in the bullpen and I’m going to make the most out of that.”

    Glad he’s got such a good attitude, but they jerked him around. Starters get more money. He was good starter for Atlanta and they took it away from him, then demoted him to get him ready for it again, then took it away from him before he got to start a game. Clowns.

    That Heyward double was on an inside fast ball from a lefty!!!!!!!!!!!!! In the words of Phil Collins, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life.

    Oh dear. Simmons needs a hug.

    There’s his hug.

    This Simmons guy is growing on me.

    I hope Prado is a Brave for the rest of his career.

    Rev is in the fetal position in some locker room.

    @110 me tooooooo!

    Medlen, my love grows every day. Need to work on a haiku.

    And I will say it again, he is completely wasted in the bullpen. If he had started from the beginning of his career in Atlanta, showing the brilliance he has shown when he has been given the opportunity to start, it would be outrageous that he is in the bullpen. Our team would be so much better of he was starting every 5th day instead of Minor or Delgado or Hanson. He’s better than all those guys. And it’s not even close.

    Don’t hold back Curtis. Tell us how you really feel.

    Curdlen Says:

    Everything I say is true. That’s the beauty of it all.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Curt, so 100% agreed about Medlen. He ought to be a 3rd year starter for the Braves.

  18. 118
    Curt Says:

    I’m out of pocket so I can’t look it up too easily, but I know his stats as a starter speak for themselves. 12-4. Something along those lines. Total waste.

    Shaun Says:

    The Medlen thing is really crazy. I’m guessing we’ll talk it about it Sunday night…

    Hell of a 6th inning tonight. That inning, more than just being a streak buster, had the look of sending the team back in the right direction. This team is crazy streaky and I bet this just started a good one.

    Steve Says:

    Dammit! #119 was me.

  21. 121
    Curt Says:

    Sorry. So the Braves are 14-4 in games Medlen starts. Last season he had starts was 2010. Braves went 13-1 in games that he started that year. That’s a .929 winning percentage.

    Nate Says:

    I’ll jump on the Meds deserves better bandwagon. Sheesh, how embarrassing. He would start on any other team and would be damn good at it.

  23. 123
    Nate Says:

    It’s good to see Meds handle the situation like a professional. Maybe the people behind his mistreatment can start to be professionals, too. I’m sorry, that’s disgraceful treatment of an asset from a management standpoint.

  24. 124
    Jo Bu Says:


    I agree Curt. I surely hope that Meds isn’t one of those Braves’ talents that we somehow trade away to team which subsequently owns us when he pitches against us every outing.

    Shaun Says:

    Steve @120, it’s okay. You’re not the only person who wants to be me. (Yeah, right.)
