    Curt Says:

    They just said last 5 they are 1-4 and have given up 13 runs. a total joke.

    Curt Says:

    they have scored 7 in that stretch

    Bub…that would be a no.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Yikes. I picked a seriously good time to become occupied, eh? How is the team acting about all this?

    Tcc Says:

    I imagine the Braves team is very dejected at the loss especially in the setting of an excellent Tommy Hanson performance. I also think that the ABT team is getting a little more hateful than I’m comfortable with. Go Braves. See ya ABT.

    Leah Says:

    Bub, glad the swine flu didn’t take away your sense of humor. I watched until the bottom of the 9th and then watched an episode of Dexter with the Reverend. At least I know it’s going to be a tragedy!

    PS…I freakin love ABT.

    Bubdylan Says:

    No Tcc, don’t go! Steve isn’t hateful. Stay for Steeeeeeeeeve!

    Steve Says:

    It was a terrible loss, but nothing new here since the swoon’s begun. No offense. Shaky closer. The biggest shame was blowing Hanson’s masterpiece and hurting his ROY chances in the process. Ugh, indeed.

    Bubdylan Says:

    G’night ABT. *waves at Leah*

    Hey, I guess we’re “sharing a drink they call [our team sucks]-iness, but it’s better than drinkin’ alone?”

    laaaa di daaaa diddy daaaa….

    Leah Says:

    Oh dear…Bub’s mixing cold meds and beer. *waves back at drunk heavily medicated Bub*. Next year, first play off game ABT crew and faithful followers will meet in the ATL to cheer on the Bravos. I can FEEL it.

    Steve Says:

    Leah/Bub – I’m here. And Leah, I love your optimism about next year. And I share it. Things are only looking up for the foreseeable future. And, as C in B aptly pointed out a few days ago, our short lived wildcard chase after the AllStar break was really just icing on a rebuilding year. This team was mediocre to bad much of the first half. The tease in July/August was a hell of a lot of fun. That said, I can’t ignore the fact that the tease in July/August has made this total collapse really, really frustrating. Oh, productive offense, we hardly knew ya.

    Taylor -The Man Says:

    I haven’t read any comments yet, but another night mismanaged…yet again. *le sigh*

    P. W. Hjort Says:

    Yeah, I trust Kelly Johnson. I think he’s gotten better defensively and has fallen on some hard luck at the plate this year, but I think he’s an above average MLB second baseman on both sides of the ball.

  14. 39
    Anne Says:

    2010 season tickets are on sale…when?? I’m in.
    I’m also with Bub in picking an awesome time to be busy. Go Brav…oh, never mind.

  15. 40
    Curt Says:

    P.W. I like your commitment. We all loved Kelly going into the season. Steve got to interview him and he is a very rootable player. A super nice guy. I would like nothing more than for him to be a solid 2nd baseman for the Braves.

    I’m not sure how we are being haters? I guess we can’t express disappointment with the team? This has been a frustrating season. Add last night to that list. Another brilliant start, another display of an anemic offense, another example of questionable managing from Bobby Cox, and another heartbreaking loss. That’s not hating, that’s the facts.

  16. 41
    Leah Says:

    Ditto Curt. What he said. I don’t think it’s hate, rather passion. If Braves fans were more passionate about their team maybe more key moves would be made re: the skipper and big players with tiny bats. May the force be with you Tcc.

    Chris in Boston Says:

    I remember the days of Frank LaCorte and Dave Bristol. You want frustration, try some of that.

  18. 43
    Hammy Says:

    So true, Chris in Boston. How about Biff Pocoroba? Nick Esasky? We could go on all day.

  19. 44
    Chris in Boston Says:

    Ah, Biff Pocoroba. He was one of my favorites. I love the Braves.

    Kathryn Says:

    You guys should change the post season hope meter to a finish above .500 hope meter.

  21. 46
    Leah Says:

    D. Lowe being true to form. Allowing the bad guys to accomplish the improbable.

  22. 47
    Leah Says:

    If Tejada had won the game in walk off fashion two nights in a row I literally would have cried. Nobody knows what I’m talking about because you all had better things to do with your time which makes me feel a bit like a loser. Go Braves!

  23. 48
    Bubdylan Says:

    Just came to say hey.


    (seriously, are we like on a complete losing streak or something? Nobody’s being very detailed and I refuse to go to any other blogs… it’s all so mysterious this way.)

    Leah, having nothing better to do with your time than take in baseball is the American Dream. I just ain’t there yet.

    Will Says:

    Hate???? the only hatred on this board is our collective hatred of losing, hatred of not living up to obvious potential, hatred of ESPN, and my personal hatred of Hamilton and everthing he stands for, his family, and his ancestors, the Hugenots who burned our village. other than that ABT is a love fest, a fount of mirth.

    Will Says:

    oh, and nice win today…!!!

    …hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way….the time is gone, the season is over, thought id something more to say..
