Heyward and Simmons killing it.  Minor and Venters killing the team.  And the triumphant return of JJ.

    After telling my 7 yo why we call Simmons the Kid he aske what we call Francisco. I said an empty hole and then he hits a double!

    Nice to see some shutdown innings from Minor — hope he can keep it going

    I’m close to being completely over Minor. 5 walks and 5 hits in 5.0 IP. Nothing but pure luck has him ahead in this game. Delgado is, to me, is not even in a category with Minor. 2 or 3 more starts without showing something else besides this garbage and I’ll be fine if I never see him again.

    Okay, Meds, in a minute here, these runs will start to be yours.

    A win’s a win, but we need a pitcher.

    Yes. Time for Minor to go. Even if not for Medlen

    tomorrows game is huge.

    great start…

    Yeah, I don’t think Huddy’s sinker is sinking in this oven. Not looking good.

    Watch Ankiel right here.

    Bubdylan Says:

    I thought he might homer. Just a single, and the nightmare continues. An 88 mph sinker that don’t sink is batting practice.

    If I was sitting in that heat at Turner Field right now, spending three days’ salary for decent tickets to this “ballgame,” I’d be seriously bummed out.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Good inning, Huddy. But still only 2 groundouts in a sea of squared up pitches. Need runs.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Ben Sheets?

    I hate Liberty Media.

    Bubdylan Says:

    wow, a 14 pitch walk. Love this Andrelton kid.

  16. 116
    Bubdylan Says:

    So the pitcher walks ’em full, including a four pitch walk to Huddy, and then you get 3 balls and SWING at the 3-0 pitch? Why, Bourn?

  17. 117
    Bubdylan Says:

    Atta boy, Jonesy.

    Huddy’s getting some grounders finally. Now he walks the pitcher? Yuck.

    Adam Says:

    And another wasted opportunity.

    Shaun Says:

    I get that the All-Star game should be a showcase and should not count for World Series home-field but should people get so outraged? Before all this home-field was essentially random, with the leagues alternating from year-to-year.

    I think one could make the argument that having the All-Star game decide home-field is actually a little better, though I would prefer something like league inter-league records plus All-Star game.

    Oh, and both Fangraphs and Baseball Reference have Michael Bourn as one of the five best players in the NL.

    David Says:

    I know that when Venters came in, the Braves already were 2 runs behind, so it’s not really his fault if we lose…but man, it feels like he just let this team down a LOT.

  21. 121
    Adam Says:

    We look like we belong in 3rd place

  22. 122
    Curt Says:

    How about the team with the best record gets home-field, just like every other major sport with a ‘best-of’ championship? Not sure why it has to be any more complicated than that? Basketball and hockey don’t seem to have any problems with that format.

  23. 123
    Bubdylan Says:

    Ladies and gents, the Braves are the official slap-around dolls for the Montreal Expos. This doesn’t qualify as fun anymore.

  24. 124
    Curt Says:

    That game sucked, by the way. It seems to me that it will be tough to beat the team in front of you if you can never beat them head to head.

    Nate Says:

    @122, makes too much sense to be something MLB will accept.
