    No kidding. Talk the talk. Walk the walk.

    So now we’re not bad at everything? What a difference an inning makes.

    C’mon Chipper get your 5th hit.

    I thought hits would be here tonight too!

    Gas meet fire. Venters is in the game….

    Can’t wait to hear the “we’re hittin’ em where they’re standin’ quotes post-game

    Walker Says:

    This is a weird team. I truly don’t understand them or the manager. I’m perplexed, confused, and baffled.

    Anne Says:

    There’s a kid down by the Braves on-deck circle wearing a Gonzalez #33 jersey. I’m gonna go punch him in the face.

    Greetings from Turner Field jail. It was worth it.

    Adam Says:

    So we’re just a .500 team this year I guess. That’s frustrating.

    Bubdylan Says:

    #63 & #64, awesome.

    #66: I quit.

    Anne Says:

    The fireworks were great. I escaped easily from Turner Field jail. The guards are pretty mediocre too.

    Jo Bu Says:

    Streaky, that’s the story of the 2012 Braves and streaky teams don’t go far, if at all, in the playoffs… even with a second wildcard team in the mix.

    Walker Says:

    Tony LaRussa is slick. By picking Chipper It probably helps Freese win the Final Vote. Chipper was going to win and Bourn should have been picked to replace Kemp. Slick Tony.

    Nate Says:

    And here comes Minor.

    Anne Says:

    #70 reminds me – I was talking to Alan – the best Braves Usher ever – at the game last night. He threw up his hands over another (minor) Minor (major) start. He’s a great observer of the game and is honestly worried about Venters. “Something’s wrong with that kid.” “He’s not the same pitcher.” Tell us about it, I know, but also throwing in the, “But Fredi keeps putting him in there…”

  22. 72
    Steve Says:

    Well, Wren finally figured out a way to get Venters out of Fredi’s arsenal. The ol’ fake injury manuever. DOB’s tweet about it is great. “Elbow impingement that we haven’t heard about this whole month, or last night or ever” – or something to that effect. What a ridiculous season this has been at times for the Bravos.

  23. 73
    Shaun Says:

    Aaron Gleeman of NBC Sports’ Hardball Talk points out, “Since the beginning of 2010 the Braves have called on Venters for 204 appearances, which is the most in baseball and no one else is above 193. He was ridden hard and put away wet.”

  24. 74
    Walker Says:

    Mediocre, streaky baseball was the theme for the first half of this season. It would be great to end it with a 4 game winning streak.

    Note to Fredi: Your job is on the line. The Braves better make the playoffs.

    Freese won the final vote. Arrrgghhh
