    Stomp Stomp CLAP,

    Stomp Stomp CLAP,

    We will, we will rock you…

    (less than six hours. Brad Lidge is more nervous than DOB alone with Terrence Moore)

    Curt Says:

    Look for Steve and I on the TV. We will be the guys 7 rows behind home plate. I will be the one giving the bird to all the Phillies players.

    Bubdylan Says:

    You cooked them a turkey? That’s sweet.

  4. 79
    Bubdylan Says:

    (I’ll be watching for y’all. If you MUST throw beer, I’ll bail you out.)

    Steve Says:

    Bub – wouldn’t that be, “Brad Lidge is more nervous than DOB alone with Tim Hudson.” And yeah, how awful was that beer throwing incident? And even more crazy given that they carted off the wrong guy. Unbelievable. We may not show up to games and we may be more interested in the Kiss-Cam here in Atlanta, but we’d not do something that bush league.

    Steve Says:

    Some more to pump you up (shamelessly stolen from RC at DOB’s blog):

    Team batting numbers over the last 30 days:

    Runs scored – Atlanta, 138 (4th in NL). Philly, 131 (7th in NL).
    Home runs – Atlanta, 36 (2nd in NL). Philly, 35 (3rd in NL).
    AVG – Atlanta, .280 (3rd in NL). Philly, .249 (14th in NL).
    OBP – Atlanta, .357 (3rd in NL). Philly, .320 (13th in NL).
    Slugging – Atlanta, .459 (2nd in NL). Philly, .424 (11th in NL).

    Chris in Boston Says:

    Steve, Happ pitched 135 innings last year, 118 the year before. He’s now at 121. The fade is coming.

    To put that into context, in 2006 and 2007, JJ pitched 140 and 142 innings respectively. In 2008, he hit a wall in mid August, pitched poorly and had to be shut down. That wall happened at about 140 innings. The same kind of thing happened to a number of the Mets pitchers a few years ago and led to their collapse.

    The innings are tougher on the ML level, too. It’s like running an uphill marathon when the most you ever did in your training was 15 miles.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Steve, good shamelessly stolen stuff!

    Yeah, I was gonna say Hudson, but Terrence is the Griffey Jr. guy I like to pick on most. And I actually kind of take DOB’s side in the Hudson battle, though I would have like to’ve seen a smidge of regret from Mr. O’Brien on that one. Or on any one. Crap, my issues are showing again.

    Go BRAVES!!! The Braves that have been simmering since the NY-BOS week are ready to EXPLODE!!

    C’mon, Roachy! C’mon, McCann! C’mon Garret! C’mon McLouth! C’mon PRADO!!! C’mon YUNEL FREAKING ESCOBAR!! C’mon KELLY FREAKING JOHNSON!! C’mon Greg NOR… … C’mon CHURCHY!!!

  9. 84
    Steve Says:

    C in B – I love it. And thanks for the clarification on the innings. I only looked at his ML innings, I didn’t think about the minors. I hope you’re right man – the timing of his 140 innings (presumably the start of September) would be very, very fortuitous.

    Leah Says:

    Ok…I’ve said it before and must say it again, Bub, you are freakin hilarious! Steve and Curt, will you be wearing matching ABT shirts of some obnoxious color and carrying foam fingers? If not I’m not watching. Well, I’ll watch but it won’t be as fun.

  11. 86
    Bubdylan Says:

    Leah, thanks. Dudes always like to have their humor validated.

  12. 87
    Bubdylan Says:

    1. McLouth, CF
    2. Prado, 2B
    3. Chipper, 3B
    4. McCann, C
    5. Anderson, LF
    6. Escobar, SS
    7. LaRoche, 1B
    8. Church, RF
    9. Jurrjens

    Ohhhhhh, that looks very, very good. It’s gonna happen.

  13. 88
    Anne Says:

    I’m with Leah: matching shirts AND Kiss Cam is a match made in heaven, fellas. I’m so glad I have nothing better to do tonight than pack my suitcase and watch the game. Go, Braves!!

  14. 89
    Curt Says:

    How about having a guy like LaRoche batting 7th. Seems like yesterday when that was KJ or Frenchy. Oh, how the times they are a changing.

  15. 90
    Leah Says:

    Listen ‘atcha…seriously, someone has invaded Curt’s psyche. Be careful Steve.

  16. 91
    Bubdylan Says:

    Is there nobody among us going the “careful” route tonight? With Cox at the wheel? And Jurrjens a little weary? And … our record of rollercoaster heartbreak? Nobody?

    It ain’t going to be me. All my chips are in tonight.

    I just played “We Are the Champions” on youtube. Fully invested.

    Less than one hour till we remind the Phillies who owns this division. We just took a little break.

  17. 92
    Anne Says:

    I never said anything about changing from my 3. Regardless: Go Braves!!

  18. 93
    Bubdylan Says:

    3 innings in 33 pitches. 27 strikes, 6 balls. 1st pitch strikes to the first 10 batters.

    Jurrjens is rested.

  19. 94
    Bubdylan Says:

    What I meant, was, uh, *facepalm*

  20. 95
    Bubdylan Says:

    Lemme see if that works in reverse.

    Blanton is rested.

  21. 96
    Leah Says:

    Since the baseball gods hate me I can’t comment on the game until after but I just have to ask…do you think Curt and Steve are participating in the wave while JJ’s trying to concentrate? I bet Steve’s sitting very quietly while Curt’s jumping up and down flailing his arms to and fro.

  22. 97
    Bubdylan Says:

    Curt keeps trying to get Sweet Caroline started. Steve has moved down to an empty seat away from Curt.

  23. 98
    Leah Says:

    Laughing out loud at the visual. You know the Ted doesn’t have wifi so we can say anything we want and they won’t know until they get home.

  24. 99
    Leah Says:

    Now’s a good time for Curt to come true on his promise to pour beer on Victorino. I’m waiting for him to throw the beer or just run on the field in the buff. Steve will promptly point and shake his head along with all the other fans and say, “who is that guy.”
