    Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone. And yeah, this thing is nervewracking as hell but i get the sense that we’re more nervous than Medlen is which should give us great hope.

    Kudos to Fredi for starting Ross tomorrow. It’s the right thing to do. And another thing Bobby would never have done. It would be Hudson and Mac tomorrow. Which really means nothing but I’m happier with the battery we’ve got penciled in.

    “It would be Hudson and Mac tomorrow.”

    This is for sure.

    Anyone want to meet up tomorrow before the game? How about 4:30 in front of the Taco Mac play area?

    Wish I lived in Atlanta and could go. :(

    Since Mac is not starting his shoulder is worse that we know…..

    The #twitvids of Medlen today are just awesome. My gut hurts. I’m never gonna make it through tomorrow night.

    Steve, the Rev and I will be leaving as soon as we can and hope to be in the stadium by 4:30 provided traffic doesn’t bring us to a screeching hault. I’ll be the one wearing a Navy Braves shirt. :)

    I’m so bored I just watched two Boy George videos and enjoyed them. Bama offweek, long school weekend, and no baseball either. Loaned out my blu ray folder and my audible.com software is on the fritz. I guess I could … get out … of … the … house.

    Eh … karmakarmakarmakarmachameleonnnnnnn…

    Are you kidding, I’d love to. Can’t do it this time, though. Cheer the Medster for me.

    As long as Molina doesn’t do anything, I’ll be ok

    My sister is a huge Cards fan an begged me to cheer for Molina just once. Told her no way in HELL!

    Walker Says:

    The Cardinals lineup has Holliday, Craig, Molina and Freese hitting back to back. If this group comes up in the 8th inning in a close game, I don’t want to see O’Flaherty or Venters. I want Kimbrel then and Kimbrel for the rest of the game. I hope Fredi doesn’t let the inning number determine this game.

    I predict Heyward, Ross and Prado get big hits. Simmons make a huge defensive play and of course Chipper will get his walks.

    The key is scoring first. Of course a blowout would be nice.

    bub Says:

    #87, I fear you’re asking Fredi to make a leap in strategy that maybe 3 of the (smartest) managers in the game would make. We just now got Fredi past the drooling-on-himself level of derp this year. It’s like “yay, Timmy can tie his shoes now. Let’s try calculus!”

    But I would hope he might let Craig get four outs in the game if somebody in the 8th got into trouble. Gosh, even 5. Wouldn’t that be something?

    Pure Says:

    Any chance we’ll get a no-drama 8-0 win? I’m hoping we can score first, score often, and coast to a win.

    Leah Says:

    For the sake often heart I hope it’s a blowout. Go Braves!

    @86 – I love when Leah swears!
    @91 – I love when Hammy swears!

    Steve Says:

    @87, 88 – I’m confident that Fredi will bring in Kimbrel for a 4 or 5 out save. Starting Ross over Mac is just another example of Fredi being willing to do whatever it takes for this one game monstrosity.

    Steve Says:

    Curt Says:

    I know this game is a joke and anything can happen in one game, blah, blah, blah, but it’s high time the Braves won one of these games. It has been way too long since the Braves have had any postseason success. Last postseason series win was over the Astros before losing to the D-Backs in 2001. They really need to start removing some monkeys from their backs, and this would be a fine place to start.
