    Pure Says:

    Braves wins
    Ham: 89
    Curt: 87
    Steve: 91
    answer 46 (I’m optimistic about today’s game)
    winner: Steve

    Pure Says:

    Division winners and wildcards (East/Central/West)-(WC1/WC2)
    Curt: Phillies/St Louis/Giants-(Miami/Reds)
    Steve: Phillies/Reds/Giants-(Braves/Marlins)
    Ham: Phillies/Cubs/Diamondbacks-(Giants/Braves)
    answer: Nats/Pirates/Dodgers-(Reds/Giants/Mets)
    winner: none. Ham should get a negative score for picking the Cubs

    Bubdylan Says:

    #126, even if the Braves win today, their winning percentage would be .541, projecting out to 87.6 wins: Curt takes it.

    (There are more games played in the first “half” of the season)

    Bubdylan Says:

    Hammy, I had the Cubs, too. Foolishness.

  5. 130
    Bubdylan Says:

    Braves up 4 to 3 in the ninth on the road, Nats down 4 to 3 in the ninth at home. Pretty significant swing on the line in the next few minutes.

  6. 131
    Curt Says:

    Seriously? Simmons with a broken bone in his hand. Give me a break

  7. 132
    Walker Says:

    What is the recovery time?

  8. 133
    Bubdylan Says:

    And here comes the reason I still watch the games: Craig Kimbrel. Do it up, kid.

  9. 134
    Bubdylan Says:

    Howard, say Hello to strikes one, two, and three. Now say g’bye.

  10. 135
    Bubdylan Says:

    Ruiz, say Hell to strikes one, two, and three. Now go sit by Howard.

  11. 136
    Bubdylan Says:

    7 strikes, no balls, 3 outs. Just call wake me for the 9th innings.

    Simmons broke his hand? %$^&.

  12. 137
    Bubdylan Says:

    Nats 90 feet away from tying it up in the bottom of the 9th. Strikes out. Braves gain.

  13. 138
    Bubdylan Says:

    Reason #43 that baseball is hard to love: injuries spoil the best plans. Look at the Phillies. They sell out every game, spend 170 million dollars on payroll. Injuries have them in last place.

    Why are the first place Nats considering benching the best pitcher in the league in the middle of their best season since they were Expos? Injury.

    Middle market team takes a big money chance on Mike Hampton? Whole team now crippled by his injury.

    Now Beachy and Simmons, the two brightest new spots on the Braves team. Snap, crackle, pop.

  14. 139
    Walker Says:

    Oh well

    Our new starting SS……………………….. Jack Wilson

  15. 140
    Nate Says:

    Does Pastornicky get called back up? Who would you rather have Patornicky or Wilson, which is kind of like asking if you’d rather go to North Dakota or South Dakota on your next vacation?

  16. 141
    Bubdylan Says:

    Good call, Tweeters. ‘Course, I’d have said “Bittersweep Ending to First Half” but I have a black belt in punning.

  17. 142
    Steve Says:

    Curt gets all the credit on Bittersweep.

    The Simmons injury is nothing short of brutal. 4 – 6 weeks I just saw from DOB. Brutal.

  18. 143
    Steve Says:

    Pastor’s slash line since being sent down: .255/.301/.355

  19. 144
    Bubdylan Says:

    Pastor’s defensive slash line since being born: oops/damn/uh-oh

  20. 145
    Curt Says:

    Some classy Phil’s fan responded to that tweet with “haha. Sucks for you”. L-O-S-E-R

  21. 146
    Steve Says:

    @145 – Saw that. Made my blood boil.

    @144 – So true. Pastor had a HR and 2 RBI today, fwiw.

  22. 147
    Walker Says:

    We cant put Pastornicky’s horrible defense at SS anymore. I would rather start Wilson. Pastorniciky’s range absolutely positively sucked. We can’t afford it.

  23. 148
    Bubdylan Says:

    Walker, I’m with you.

  24. 149
    Blue Says:

    Last night about 9:30 without knowing the outcome I got down on my knees and prayed to God to not let this happen – but it did. I can only trust that He has a larger plan and that this does not give me a reason to surrender. I am an ex-Marine and I don’t understand that word. Somehow, at some some time, we must take back our co28try&#nu30;God bless America!
