    Is it sleep walking or is it the deadly mix of a Hanson start and a scrub lineup.

    @49 – Curt, I won’t trash the guy that you’re talking about on Twitter by name, but he’s a real jackball who loves to respond negatively to us. It’s just who he is, apparently.

    @34 – Hammy loves to give me hell about it Bub, as you know, but for a big budget, mindless action movie, it’s not bad.

    @35 – Leah – I don’t remember Curt dissing you. What was it?

    Steve, mind your own business

    @55 Lol. @54 So many jokes running through my head…every time I come to a game he bails. And by “every time” I mean that one time we met up two years ago. #punk

    Atlanta Braves vs. St. Louis Cardinals

    Payback is a Bi**h

    Has anyone heard how long MLB will wait to set the time of Friday’s game? Because the AL might not be set until after a tie breaker with the O’s and Yanks that would likely be a prime time game tomorrow. Seems like they can’t wait that long.

    Does anyone else think Hanson has made his last start for the Braves? I can’t imagine that many teams would be lining up to trade for him, but I don’t see him being very valuable to the Braves past this season. It’s amazing the decline we’ve seen in both him and Jurrjens, especially when it was about a season and a half ago when we were having discussions centered around which one the Braves should sign to a long-term extension.

    Cannot wait for Friday. And for finding out what time the game will be.

    Anyone watching the game? The box scores look great for Teheran and Delgado. Did that look that good live? 3 strikeouts for Delgado.

    Curt Says:

    Despite the spring training feel to it, that game today was pretty great. Sheets with his great inning to end his career, Chipper with a hit in his last regular season at bat, and Kimbrel fanning the side in his last regular season inning this year.

    Maybe we should pitch 8 pitchers in all of the playoff games.

    I’m going to be a nervous wreck Friday. I can’t take it. How great would it be for this team to get to the next round. We can only hope. Tomahawks need to be in full force. I want th

    I accidentally hit the enter key. Oh well. Go Braves!

    I saw there are still tickets for the game Friday. What is up with the fans in Atlanta? Just like I saw empty seats on TV at the GA dome last Sunday!

    bub Says:

    Steve, didn’t you call 94 wins? I had no idea it was that freaking many. Dude, we shouldn’t be having to risk 94 wins on a damn one-game playoff. Oh well. At least the Braves didn’t have the 2nd best record, which would make it unforgivable.

    Curt Says:

    Doc, standing room only.

    Nate Says:

    Cannot wait for the game. First game I’ll be able to get to all year. So excited. Taking my dad, a St. Louis native, who has agreed to wear the tomahawk and has fully converted to the Braves.

    Thanks for another wonderful year, ABT, and here’s to hoping for many postseason podcasts. You guys are the best! Go Braves!

    Nate Says:

    P.S. screw the Beltran curse. We have Meds!

    Anne Says:

    Happy Birthday, Steve! As a belated present, I have it on good authority that Medlen and his Braves shall give you a win tomorrow night.

    Leah Says:

    Steve! It’s your birthday? How wonderful! Happy Birthday! So I’m super stoked about the game but I had a dream last night that we lost and now I’m terrified.

    Walker Says:

    McCann is not starting Friday. I know he’s pissed.

    Leah Says:

    He may be but I’m releived.

    bub Says:

    @72, Fredi grow’d hangy-downs this year. I’ll give him that.

    bub Says:

    One thing I like about this, even though it’s a total illusion to place any significance on one game, is that if the Braves do only win one round, only win the one-game playoff, then having Kris Medlen be the captain of their one magic moment would be pretty great. It’d be a unique piece of Braves history, too, with this being the first year of the fifth team. The Braves definitely have the cooler narrative between them and the birds.

    Not that I’m pessimistic about playing the Nats; I’m not. But I’m just saying, if it turned out that way, I wouldn’t call myself completely unsatisfied.

    Now, if we lose Friday, pitchforks + torches + Bud Selig. Stupid, stupid format. Unless we win.
