    Curt Says:

    The 2009 Braves have outscored opponents by 74 runs and won 79 games. The 2009 Marlins have outscored opponents by seven runs and have won 80.

  2. 2
    Steve Says:

    So, what does it mean? Is it just a statistical result of lopsided Braves victories? Have the Marlins simply won more close games than we have?

  3. 3
    Curt Says:

    It means that you should have won a lot more games than you have. It almost mirrors that quality start stat I had before. The team has been in the position to win a lot more games than 79. They have failed to seize the opportunities presented to them. It probably also means that you score a bunch of runs in a few games and lose a lot of 2-1 games.

    This 1st inning against the Mets is killing me! I love these Braves!!!
    Nice hustle Yuni…nice dinger GA…nice sac Chipper!!

    Good show guys. And lets start with saying congrats on a great ABT season. I think I have been a fan for about 1 year now. This year had some incredible interviews. Good solid analysis. Ive learned alot…

    Sadly, it has the feeling that this is the beginning of the end. Im about a 0.6, which I suppose is better than Curt.

    Bubdylan Says:

    I echo Will on Congrats to ABT. You guys make watching (or in my case, not-watching) an underachieving ballteam twist in the wind at the hands of an out-to-lunch manager quite tolerable.

    Congrats, ABT! Best of luck going forward! (Gooooooo Reds…)

    Laaaaryyy…

    just had to.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Wow! I peeked at the score. Wow!

    Bubdylan Says:

    Wait, why is our run differential suggests a better record?

  9. 9
    Bubdylan Says:

    *why is it…

  10. 10
    Curt Says:

    How would it not? Look at other run differentials and see how the records of the other teams outscoring their opponents by that much compare to that of the Braves. I’ll get back on this.

  11. 11
    Bubdylan Says:

    Sorry, Curt. I was kidding around, but it wasn’t clear. As in: “we’re getting another of our eight-run wins tonight, why is it our differential is so lopsided?”

  12. 12
    Curt Says:

    Sorry. Long day. I’m edgier than usual.

  13. 13
    Chris in Boston Says:

    Actually, a positive 70-80 run differential is fairly normal for teams 10-15 wins over .500.

  14. 14
    Leah Says:

    Thanks Hammy for protecting my head. I greatly appreciate it. I’m jealous of you football die hards. I’m going to have to take up knitting or something. So bummed the season is almost over.

  15. 15
    Steve Says:

    Thanks for all the kind words.
    By the way, we’re trying to line up some interviews for the off-season as well. We’ve got Javy Lopez on the books so far…

  16. 16
    Leah Says:

    He’s one of my all time favorites…so handsome…I mean super talented and athletic. I think you should interview BubDylan. If he can make time for you in his schedule.

  17. 17
    Anne Says:

    I’m with you, Leah. Football has zero appeal for me. I made a deposit on 2010 Braves season tickets just to make myself (and them) feel like it’s spring already.

  18. 18
    Curt Says:

    The core of this starting pitching is just amazing. Frank Wren has set us for some time. Now if we can just dump Derek Lowe on someone.

  19. 19
    Bubdylan Says:

    Leah, you’re getting your wish. I’m actually Javy Lopez.

  20. 20
    Leah Says:

    I KNEW it!

  21. 21
    Steve Says:

    Not to repeat myself, but … this 10 of 12 run has been so tremendous and so depressing. Oh, to have that Reds series back. Great game tonight. JJ is just stunningly good.

  22. 22
    Leah Says:

    Now we’re even with the Giants. BLAST!

    Hammy Says:

    Wiley- I would agree with you, but it looks like both the cards and dodgers will have clinched by the time the Rockies play them, not to mention that 8 out of 11 are in denver. I like your optimism though. If anything, let’s keep it interesting until the end.

  25. 25
    Curt Says:

    The Atlanta Braves announced today that they have agreed to terms with manager Bobby Cox on a one-year contract extension through the 2010 season and that the team’s entire coaching staff will be brought back next year.

    Hello third place.

  26. 26
    Taylor -The Man Says:

    I honestly couldn’t be more depressed that BC is coming back next year…might just be me (and Curt I suppose), but enough is enough.

  27. 27
    Hammy Says:

    Don’t worry – he will still be in place as a consultant. To quote Bobby, “While I have decided that 2010 will be my last season in the dugout, I want to make it clear that we will all be working as hard as ever to win another world championship,” Cox said in a statement.

    He went on to say, “I will also do everything I can to completely wear out the bullpen, avoid hitting and running and bunting, and putting prolonged and unwavering support in anyone named Jo-Jo or Manny.”

  28. 28
    Leah Says:

    Hammy you forgot, “Always using a righty when pitching to Ryan Howard and playing guys who can’t seem to hit the ball no matter how hard they try. Just as a side note Greg Norton is God’s gift to pinch hitting.”

  29. 29
    Taylor -The Man Says:

    I just found the audio of the announcement and if you play it backwards, he says that he’s gonna try to trade Heyward for Frenchy because he loves that kid.

  30. 30
    Bubdylan Says:

    Horrible, depressing, deflating, gut-punching news.

    I want to say “Screw this organization” right now. I really do.

  31. 31
    Tcc Says:

    Someone tell me if I have this straight. Kelly Johnson tried to assassinate Martin Prado during batting practice???

  32. 32
    Steve Says:

    OK – Here’s the alternate view on the Bobby announcement. Bobby has success with really good teams. Next year’s team should be really, really good. He has his faults, but he also creates a very comfortable environment for good players to perform. I know that sounds kind of mundane, but I do believe that’s one of his biggest assets and is very important. And maybe there’s an additional level of motivation for the team next year to send Bobby out on a high note.

    Back to this season. IF, IF, IF – we shave 2 games off COL’s lead by the end of the weekend, the last 10 days should be very interesting. My hope meter is quivering in a strange way right now.

    “My hope meter is quivering in a strange way right now”

    Try a cold shower?

  35. 35
    Steve Says:

    Bub – you will forever look like that guy in my mind. Is it even close?

  36. 36
    Bubdylan Says:

    No, that guy looks a bit like Mark Cuban.

    The naked man in the fetal position… that one was me.

  37. 37
    Bubdylan Says:

    Steve, the might-calm-down-tomorrow side of me thinks you have decent points.

    But, DAMN I thought the silence might have meant…

    Ugh. No such luck.

  38. 38
    Tcc Says:

    Steve, thanks for the positive comments about Bobby’s return and final farewell. It’s going to happen so we have to live with it. As you say, who knows what next year will be like? I can take Bobby coming back, but not Kelly Johnson, Garrett Anderson or Greg Norton.
    Go Braves!

  39. 39
    Curt Says:

    I’ll offer this, beyond my disappointment, I am happy that we have a finish line. I was pretty certain he was coming back anyway, so I’m glad that that will be it. And for so many reasons, I want them coming into 2010 completely loaded. I want them to have a championship caliber team. And I want that team to be healthy all season long. That way, so many questions about the state of Bobby Cox as a manager should be answered. If they go out and play with an extra determination to send him out a winner, and god hope, a WS champion, it will silence so many critics. So many coaches and players have spoken about the desire for one more crack at it. Prove it. Now, should they go out and have this perfect scenario play itself out and not make the playoffs again, or flame out weakly in the first round, it will answer a few questions on the other side of the debate. Either way, it will put a final chapter on his tenure as their manager. I will be rooting for the championship. I could never bring myself to root for failure just to prove a point.

    Watching Boyer pitch for the D Backs right now. Happy for him and us all at the same time.

  40. 40
    Leah Says:

    I was hoping for a fresh start next year but if there is one thing I’ve learned from this podcast it’s that Steve is always right. After all, Kotchman was making his way up the line up before he was traded. So here’s to hoping a great team makes Bobby look awesome! The end of this season is so much more fun than last. Go Braves! Way to gain a game in the WC race.

  41. 41
    Will Says:

    It seems like a decent compromise. I doubt BC reads ABT regularly, but don’t you think he knows he screwed up this year? Maybe he learns and it helps him fight a bit harder next year. Wren the Iceman and all that is good, but chucking him to the curb would not go down well. He’s probably still got alot to offer. I’m such a softie…

    Steve, my hope meter is also tingling but last time it turned into a very painful rash.

    I like the Rockies schedule, I like our schedule…not going to be boring next 10 days.

  42. 42
    Anonymous Says:

    Go Cubs! For the sake of a Giants loss and the Cardinals not to clinch the division which would force them to do it against the Rockies.

    As for my hope meter, I will turn it on after we close into one and half games of the Rockies come this tuesday. That’s my foolishly optomistic prediction for the moment.

  43. 43
    Leah Says:

    My sanity CANNOT handle the hope meter. I’m hoping for 10 wins in a row…or 9…however many are left. I’m also hoping we reach at least 100 comments this week. Bub…you’ve done better but there is still work to be done. Don’t be a slacker!

  44. 44
    Kathryn Says:

    Home field advantage is still on the line in the NL so the Cards and Dodgers do have something to play for when they face the Rockies.

  45. 45
    Bubdylan Says:

    Okay, I take back my Bobby spew. Sigh. Maybe it really will cause a big magical year, too.

    Get a bat, Wren.

  46. 46
    Tcc Says:

    At this time last year the Braves were 71-88. 18 games behind Philly, 16.5 games back in the WC. Today they are 82-70, 4 games back in the WC. My hope meter for next year is an 8. Anything more we get this year increases that(incrementally). If there is a God, and if he is just (and not a freakin’ philly or mets fan) we get the BC farewell tour with the team playing their asses off…and a healthy Chipper!

  47. 47
    Curt Says:

    How about 2 bats. If Wren can do for the O what he did for the starting pitching we will be dancing in the streets.

  48. 48
    Leah Says:

    Friars just tied it up…I’m tempted to encourage the Padres to preach it but those darn baseball gods are so fickle. I’ll just keep my mouth shut.

  49. 49
    Steve Says:

    Curt – would 1 of the 2 bats include a re-signed LaRoche? LaRoche and a big bat in right field to be our clean up hitter (assuming McLouth in Center and Diaz in Left)?

    Leah – the only thing more right than me – is you, talking about how right I am.

    Pads just tied it up 3 all in the 7th. Good God it is fun to be watching the scoreboard again!

  50. 50
    Curt Says:

    SD 5- Col 4 – Final

  51. 51
    Bubdylan Says:

    One thing I respect about Bobby’s decision is how he said he knew he needed to announce it ahead of time in order to avoid the temptation of trying for another year after next year. So that he’d have to stick with it, etc. That sounds pretty honest.

  52. 52
    Leah Says:

    3 1/2 back. Curt, time to chime in with your cold hardass dose of realitiy including stats proving improbability.

  53. 53
    Curt Says:

    I will point out that the last time I went optimistic, we got swept by the reds.

  54. 54
    Tcc Says:

    B Mac now has as many SB’s as Escobar. What’s up with that?

  55. 55
    Steve Says:

    With all the false starts, gut punches, and “the season is over”s there’ve been this season, how freaking great and unbelievable has this run been? It’s just been absurd. 12 of 14 since the sweep by the Reds. MUST get into the post-season! C’mon St. Louis!!!!

  56. 56

  60. 60
    Leah Says:

    …big bag of poop, boo Cards.

  61. 61
    Steve Says:

    That really blows. With the Marlins losing, a COL loss would have been just stunningly great. Sigh. Time for the Cards to take 2 of 3.

  62. 62
    Tcc Says:

    Leah, you must be a “Sandlapper” to be getting that question on your kid’s test! The whole Tcc story is too long to need to be told here. Thorn. Go Cards!!!!

  63. 63
    Leah Says:

    If the Cards win tonight I will walk up to that pulpit tomorrow and kiss the Reverend right on the lips.

    I love that the pitcher has two hits. Awesome. You would think Cantu could afford some serious facial therapy. Just sayin…he would scare less children.

  83. 83

    Facial… therapy?

  84. 84
    Leah Says:

    Come on Cards! Win one for the “surging Braves”!

  85. 85
    Bubdylan Says:

    *looking at Cantu’s nose*

    Tell me, why is it you feel you have to scrunch? Is it so you can be like the other face parts?

  86. 86
    Bubdylan Says:

    No, I have no illusion of anything I’ve said lately being funny. Just to get that out there…

  87. 87
    Leah Says:

    Yeah. Like microdermabrasion. It helps with fine lines, wrinkles and SCARRING.

  101. 101
    Bubdylan Says:

    Leah, I probably heard it and didn’t pay attention. If it was before the deadline I wasn’t gone yet. I’d'a thought I’d have noticed Holliday landing somewhere, but… oh well.

  102. 102
    Leah Says:

    Wahoo! I knew we could do it. I’m going to be so sad if the Cards don’t win.

  103. 103

    Five more outs.

    Would it put ATL 2.5 out? Or 2?

  104. 104

  106. 106
    Leah Says:

    Bubdylan Says:

    here comes the crying…

  113. 113
    Will Says:

    On average id say one or less fire at will per year… Most often is where theres a will theres a way, twice a year maybe. I suspect the avg is low because we live in Japon. If my friends over here want to rag on me they send me news articles about rednecks and ask if we are related… Or when the keyboard player from Skynrd died…”are you ok…do you need some time off work ?” etc

    2.5 out. 2 point freaking 5 out. At about 9:45 tonight, when it was still 3-3, I turned to my wife, and said, “the Cards just have to win tonight.” To which she replied, “done.” And so it is. I’m freaking out right now. I don’t know how else to say it.

  141. 141

    “Excuse me preacher man, this will only take a minute.”. *smooch*. “Carry on.”

    Wiley Says:

    Kyle Lohse- “is coming off his most encouraging start in two weeks”
    Jorge De La Rosa- “had one of his worst outings on tuesday”

    I hope these scouting reports of probable pitchers mean something.

    Yeah. The Rockies are so glad he’s pitching.

    Moylan is a beautiful, beautiful man.

    Bubdylan Says:

    So… what you’re saying is… we had Brooks available when Norton hit?

  153. 153
    Bubdylan Says:

    well… nevermind I guess. :(

  154. 154
    Bubdylan Says:

    Bases loaded, one out for Pujols…

  155. 155
    Bubdylan Says:

    Wow… and the same moment, bases loaded, one out for B-Mac.

    Fate?

    Omar!!!

    Bubdylan Says:

    Dang, Ludwick k’s. Cards lead only at one.

    Hopefully the scoreboard watching Rockies will lose whatever momentum they’d have gained by striking out Pujols & Ludwick with bases loaded… when they look up and see the Bravos have put up three…

    Chris in Boston Says:

    Lots of pressure on the Rockies now.

  161. 161
    Bubdylan Says:

    If they don’t get a run right here in this inning, I say they crumble…

    1st and 3rd, 2 outs, Barnes at the plate…

  162. 162
    Bubdylan Says:

    Strike one…

  163. 163
    Bubdylan Says:

    Strike two…

    Ball one…

    1-2

  165. 165
    Bubdylan Says:

    Fly out.

    Commence crumbling, Rocks.

    Dang. Crumbling postponed….

    Wiley Says:

    What a come back by the Pirates. That’ll help the home field advantage push. Which will force the Dodgers to play the Rockies competitively. Am I looking too much in to this?

  171. 171
    Bubdylan Says:

    Wiley, I was thinking the same thing.

    Which is no man’s reassurance that he’s not looking too much into something! :)

    Today is National Stranded at Third Day.

    Ugh. I’m staying away. I think I curse the Braves worse than Leah when I say stuff…

    Wiley Says:

    I hate Clint Barmes. But what was Albert doing. You cant assume that’s going to drop.

    Steve Says:

    It is a total, complete shame that the Cards could not capitalize and take back that game. And while 1.5 would have just been ridiculously tantalizing, all I’ve been thinking this past week is, if we can head into the last week 3 back or better, we’ve got a real chance. And here it is. What a final week!

    Living baseball right now which is refreshing. Bub, we need to come up with a language the gods don’t recognize. Some sort of code. Go Braves! Let’s go fishin!

    Bubdylan Says:

    Habas tu espanol, Senora Leah? Nosotros platicamos el espanol y los gods de baseball no comprenden que nosotros hablamos! Si?

    Leah Says:

    Very little Bub. I took 2 years in High School and 2 semesters in college. That was many years and three babies ago. Besides, there are enough Spanish speaking ball players the gods have to have atleast one translator.

    Sh*t. You guys didn’t blow my cover for me leaving the DOB, did you? Cuz, like, I’m sure he sweats it every. single. day.

    Wiley Says:

    Who will be our manager come 2011? Did you all talk about that at all?

  189. 189
    Steve Says:

    Wiley – Curt touched on that actually. The show will be up in about 45 minutes.

    And Bub, it’s really funny you ask about DOB. Because he’s our guest on this show. We spend a good 5 minutes talking about you and what your departure has meant to the blog.
