Smoltz enters tonight’s game knowing that not only does he have to pitch a shutout he will also have to drive in all the runs.

Game Thread: Dodgers at Braves, May 30
May 30, 2006
I can’t believe we’ve still got eight more games with these guys. I hate the unbalanced schedule.
Tonight we will win.
Robert, I think I hate the fact that this season isn’t over w/. I’m ready for football, this is too depressing. I love my Braves though
Unbalanced schedule sucks. Does having divisions even make sense with the wild card? I’d rather just play everybody in the league the same number of games than be forced to play the same 4 teams 19 times each.
That’s right. Only two more weeks of baseball season left. Thank God.
Well I was actually meant September 2 is Virginia Tech’s first game.
oops no need for the *was*
could be a long season for the Tide too
I like Kenneth Darby. That’s about it.
Ryan O’Malley just got the Shaving Cream in the face…Good for him.
MLB debut and he goes 8 strong and gets the win.
Rookie..making his debut, going 8 strong and winning…
Sounds as if he pitched against us..
He is some news to add to last night’s “game”. The Cubs are now the last team that doesn’t have a CG. The other was Washington…We took care of that now didn’t we.
I just read you Madden NFL 07 player ratings. Jimmy Williams got a 79 as a rookie. YAY!!!
Jason Allen got an 80. Meh…
Darryl Tapp- 78
Cedric Humes- 75
Jimmy Martin- 73
They forgot alot of my guys.
James Anderson- LB Carolina
Justin Hamilton- S Cleveland
Jeff King- TE Carolina
Jonathan Lewis- DT Arizona
Will Montgomery- C Carolina
Marcus Vick- Miami
I’m not really familiar with the other guys…but Vick’s absence doesn’t surprise me. He’s still not really assured of a roster spot.
Marcus Vick could’ve been a top 10 pick in the 07 draft if he would’ve stayed out of trouble.
He seems to be doing well in camp though. Catching pretty much everything…so, he could make it as a kick returner/ 4th receiver type.
After Chambers, Booker and 3rd round pick Derrick Hagan, it’s Wes Welker, Kelly Kampbell and Vick fighting for those spots.
We’ll just have to wait and see how he does the remaining preseason games.
I doubt that is true, or that him staying out of trouble was possible anyway. There are over 31,000 McDonald’s locations worldwide.
thats good a one Mac…..I hope Vick makes it, Welker isnt bad a special teams guy, he did a good job on returns last year, but I think Vick has a more explosive game….
I hope he makes it too.
Mac are you saying that if Marcus Vick stayed at VT(without getting kicked off the team) he would be at least a top 10 pick?
Virginia Tech is ranked #16 without him….just think were we would be with him. Plus his name is Vick, and besides Troy Smith he probaly would have been the most explosive QBs in the nation. But that is just my biased opinion.
Woohoo I just got Scary Movie 4 in the mail…time to laugh. 🙂
Don’t get your hopes too high Jay…
Woohoo I just got Scary Movie 4 in the mail…time to laugh.
Netflix is great isn’t it? I remember many years ago when it was just starting up and I signed up. I’ve got to be one of their longest subscribers. I never thought it would make it much less give Blockbuster a run for it’s money.
I just finished watching the movie ‘Brick’. I really have no idea if I liked or not, but it was sure interesting. Movies like this are what make Netflix work, I would never take a chance on a movie like that at a video store.
Pedro is on the DL again
Is it not funny Davey?
I have seen Scary Movie 2 so many times….Easily the best one…They should have kept the Wayans Bros.
While 2 and 3 were pretty good…I found 4 to be pretty damn awful.
But, maybe that’s just me. I hope you do enjoy it though.
I heard it was terrible!
Well, since I’m a big loser and I have no life…I like to spend my evenings watching movies/dvd’s after the Braves lose. (it helps me unwind)
So, I’ve seen alot…and yeah, Scary Movies 4 was downright putrid…much like Tony Pena Jr’s hitting ability.
note how my dislexia made me type “Scary Movies 4”..making that sentence even more ridiculous.
New York Giants 58-43 (–)
Boston Braves 54-46 (3.5)
St. Louis Cardinals 57-52 (5)
Chicago Cubs 54-51 (6)
Brooklyn Robins 48-54 (10.5)
Philadelphia Phillies 48-55 (11)
Pittsburgh Pirates 47-55 (11.5)
Cincinnati Reds 47-57 (12.5)
No Game on Sunday- travel day as the Braves take the train to Cincinnati’s Redland Field (later Crosley). Cincy had one of the great ballpark names at its previous park, The Palace of the Fans, their home from 1902-11. (Great American Ballpark isn’t bad either, if you can disregard the corporate origin of the name.)
Ok, yeah this is horrible.
I’ve decided to help the team out and take tony pena’s spot on the roster. I too can’t hit, but could keep Chipper’s gatorade cup full at all times.
Awwwww!!!!! Leslie Nelson is naked. GROSS!!!!
That was funny Mac. I don’t think Marcus is as fask as Ron Mexico
lineup has changed and andruw is out again? what gives? and whats worse is francoeur is batting 4th. madness.
they scratched Andruw… Francoeur moved up to clean up
according to DOB
and dang it… I can see this game and McCann isn’t playing! UGH
Frenchy’ll probably do something big & the legend/myth will grow.
Just tuned in….is that Paciorek I’m hearing??
What is Demeco Ryan’s rating?
Jeff at the 4????
Bobby Cox needs glasses..
..He got a 79.
Scary Movie ain’t scary and ain’t funny.
When will the Wayans bros. go back to the Hood and tak etheir crap with them? If I see Damon make a wierd face again and stick his tongue out I’ll blow up my TV.
He should be at least a 84….he’s from Alabama, dang it.
So we got Andruw scratched..Jeff in the 4-hole…Pratt doing the “catching”..
It’s all going to depend on Smoltzie tonight again
Anyone notice a trend?
Fat vs. Skinny Comedians
Drew Carey, kind of funny, Bernie Mac-funny, Ron White-funny Cedric- funny, Sanda Bernhard-eewwww unfunny, Wayan’s unfunny….etc.
See Fat people-funny(except for Rosanne), Skinny people-unfunny.
Down with skinny people who keep telling the same joke over and over and over while making stupid faces…..
The Wayons Bros. haven’t had anything to do with the last 2 Scary Movies.
Bernhard can’t help making a weird face…..
I said *Scary Movie*, not the quadology or whatever.
They did have something do with Little Man…and I really can’t forgive them for that one..
Lol…well the Movie is finally over….and it was horrible.
Little Man, ah yes a midget you steals things. Awesome.
Just after seeing the promos i felt the sudden urge to go swallow a shotgun blast….
Jay, indeed, indeed.
Smoltz stirkes out the batter, to the Top of Second!
That draft tommorrow better be done by 8:30, Alabama preview comes on FSN then.
That was ugly…
Frenchy K’s, what else is new?
Matt “Todd Helton” Diaz…
Did anyone see or hear an explanation for Andruw not playing, or has Cox finally gone senile?
Hey, DIaz! Way to hit!
This is good news…
Come on Tank!!!!
It was Langy’s fault…thats why Andruw can’t play!!!
Here’s your explantaion Brian
“Jones was struck in the left knee by one of Langerhans’ cleats before Monday’s game, in which Jones was able to play. But the cleat hit Jones on the patellar tendon, a hot spot for pain since Jones joined the Braves when he was 19, and it caused the center fielder to miss Tuesday’s 5-0 loss against the Nationals.
The center fielder has had problems with the left knee recently, battling tendinitis.”
This is from my link above.

But the cleat hit Jones on the patellar tendon, a hot spot for pain since Jones joined the Braves when he was 19, and it caused the center fielder to miss Tuesday’s 5-0 loss against the Nationals.
LOL….Great minds think alike….or something like that.
Thanks Tank, you schmuck.
Thanks, Jay, for relaying this gem:
“Cox said that Lance Cormier, who started on Tuesday, is in line to take the ball on Sunday against the Marlins at Dolphin Stadium. Cox was impressed with the right-hander’s performance on Tuesday night and lamented Cormier’s bad luck in his last few starts, especially Tuesday’s.”
“Impressive” start: 4.2 IP, 8 H, 5 R (3 ER), 2 BB, 4 K. Yuck.
The Braves have lost all 5 of Cormier’s starts. Honestly, you’d think Cox or someone would notice these things.
You were expecting a hit from him Jay??
I took the time of his at-bat to get me an iced-tea…
And you’d think I’d notice the italics tag.
Well, is that the game or can we eventually scratch a run across? And did I kill the italics?
6 more spots everyone…
… just trying something out here…maybe it’ll work.
I guess it did.
Damn…nice Derek Jeter type try by Chipper
Ah well, this is sucking. I’m contemplating between studying now or watching Clerks 2… can’t make up mind.
this is terrible
I know this is off topic, but a thought popped into my head last night after the game (which is scary, I know). Since we are obviously done for the year, what would happen if the Dodgers played the Mets in the NLCS ?? I’m not talking about Game 1 (Penny vs. Pedro), I’m talking about Game 2, which would conceivably be Glavine vs. Maddux and how weird that would be. I would have to pull for Maddux because of the Mets factor, but what would everybody else do ??? There would be five ex-Bravos in the lineup against Glavine, just a weird thought that popped into my head ….. How’s my girl Miranda tonight ???
When does College Football start?
Not soon enough 4 Seam…not soon enough 🙁
I’d root for Maddux, but only because he’s not the Met.
Also, I think Glavine would go in Game 1 for them. You don’t know if Pedro’s gonna pitch again. If he does, I see him as a Game 3 starter, where he can only pitch one game in the first round at best.
BTW, I can’t root for the Mets ever.
I mean, if the Mets played the Nazis, I’d have to think about it.
Braves Opening Day Starting Lineup 2007
3B Mac Thompson
CF Rob Cope
This Lineup would be more competive than the one that Bobby Cox threw out there tonight….
You have to expect these first place teams to beat up on us every once in a while guys.
You’re holding the paper upside down, Rob.
And I’d claim C on that opening day roster, but even I know I’m not as good a catcher as McCann. I’m better than Pratt, though.
uBubba, yeah there’s just no way I could ever pull for the Mets, maybe if they were somehow playing a team that involved Jim Leyritz prominately, but the hypothetical scenario would include a healthy Pedro, I know Pedro’s hurt right now, and I’m no doctor, but I’ll play one on the message board, I think that they’ll give him pretty much the rest of the regular season to get healthy. I can’t imagine the Mets would have a bigger priority the rest of the year than to get him healthy, and I think that they will.
Smoltz is a better catcher than Pratt.
Oh yea I forgot catcher….Brian j.-Catcher
Hudson, Hampton, Smoltz, James, Davies next year?
I’m not better than Edgar…but I could sure outhit Tony Pena Jr.. (actually, that’s not saying much)
I suspect RobBroad4th is being sarcastic, the Nationals are not just first place teams, they are te class of the NATIONAL LEAGUE!
they become the class of the league when they play us.
Nope, I’ve already decided.
[Name Redacted](we’ll trade to get him back)
Tona Pena Jr. couldn’t hit a train if he stood on the tracks.
Home Depot ad with Smoltz just appeared on ESPN. I’m reminded again of the ad I wrote earlier, if those ads reflected this season. Smoltz would have had something explode.
The nonbeating heart of the order is up.
Tony Pena Jr. couldn’ hit a wall if he walked into it.
Hey, you gotta write something new on your blog..
Tony Pena Jr. couldn’t hit base ball if you put it on a tee and gave him a orr.
I live in NY & hear the Met talk on WFAN radio every day. Pedro had an MRI yesterday, but the Mets aren’t announcing the results, although they usually do. According to many to cover the team, that may mean that Pedro’s injury is worse than it seems.
Yes, he’ll get a couple starts in September, but I don’t expect him to be alright going into in the post-season. He’ll get one start per round at best. It’ll be a lotta Glavine, Trachsel & Maine.
Pedro’s a bad-ass & he’ll do his best, but if I’m a Met fan I don’t count on him in October.
Nicely done by Jeff…
Random fact. Jeff’s got the longest Hr this season by any Brave… McCann has the shortest.
We’ve had a lot of bad benches over the years, but this is one of the worst. Orr, Pratt, and T. Pena are amazingly unproductive.
Nice hit, Frenchy!
Are we going with the Ron Gant philosophy of scoring runs? Do we not want to get “too greedy?”
Don’t give up yet. This is getting interesting. Still nobody out…
Pratt is terrible.
I know that may be a shock, take a deep breath.
the pattented Todd Pratt double play ball…
Luckily Chuck Knoblauch plays second for Washington
Yea I Know, but what is there to write about?
The Braves suck, and CF hasn’t started yet….
Nothing to have a long post about…
LaRoche looks like he is going to have a good game????
We making a comeback!!!
We gonna catch the Mets!!!
By the by, I’ve rediscovered Big League Chew. I highly recommend it. It’s a blast from the past.
Don’t tell the kids, but “Big League Chew” is actually Beechnut or Red Man.
Is big league chew the chewing gum that comes out of a pouch?
Tastes like bubble gum to me.
andruw sitting is absolutely killing us. what a bad matchup.
Atleast Paciorek enjoyed the fact that Zimmerman threw out Smoltz…
Gotta love Smoltz.
Yeah I know what you’re saying about Pedro. It’s hard to say right now what will happen until the results are announced, but he certainly didn’t look anywhere near healthy his last start. I the my point was just to think about how crazy a Maddux-Glavine matchup would be for a Braves fan to watch on the big stage and to get some other people’s thoughts on it. I think that matchup would drive Smoltzie nuts more than any of us, but I just think it would be really really weird, but so was seeing Murph in a Phillies & Rockies uni, etc, etc, so I know those things happen these days.
Ever chew gumbacco?
Can’t say I have. Is it any good?
is that what Jaret Wright chomps on?
Jim Bouton, of “Ball Four” fame, inventied Big League Chew
I mean, five years ago, how crazy would a Glavine with the Mets and Maddux with the Dodgers matchup in the NLCS be ?? That’s all I was saying …
Rob Nelson and Jim Bouton, yep.
I wonder how many home runs Soriano would have if he played in a park like Houston
Nice to see Diaz make a catch without rendering himself unconscious.
Well, if you can stand the notion of chewing tobacco mixed with bubble gum, yeah.
Used to chew it when I played. But, I gotta admit, most find it pretty rough.
Ok, I’m back….woohoo I’m a first baseman.
But I play 3rd and Catcher…o well. 🙂
I thought Diaz would over run that ball. Giles should have made that play
I wonder how many homers Tony Pena Jr would have if he played on the moon… still zero…
That sounds horrible, ububba. I’ll stick to my BLC.
Gumbacco is fantastic BTW, a little Big League Chew and you can rock the Beechnut or Levi Garrett or Redman, my personal favorite was the Redman and that’s definately what Jaret Wright goes with
Wow, I can’t even crack 4Seams lineup. That shows how bad that order is! ha ha ha
That’s not fair, Davey. The Moon League is very good.
Wow, Zimmerman ending our season
What happened to Smoltzie…when I left it was 1-0.
Que Ryan Zimmerman to homer….I wonder if I am related to him?
You’re right Rob. The moon league is great. It did wonders for Jessie Garcia.
TOny Pena Jr couldn’t hit on the moon and his dad knows that. He still thinks he could hit in the big leagues.
I bet the play a lot of MLB 2006 in the Pena household
I’m not big on MLB 2006. I liked 2005 much better.
Paciorek needs to punched in the mouth
The History Channel is taking a Hitler break and going with September 11 coverage
I saw my barber today, he says “hey”
Any word on McDowell or TP returning next year?
If you guys ever see me on TV looking like that guy in the wheel chair. Please end it for me
My barber says Freddie Gozo is gone off to manage the Cubs, TP becomes thirdbase coach and Don Baylor comes back to be hitting coach.
I saw Paul LoDuca today…
Since Todd Pratt was starting….he took Washington on the Moneyline…Washington on the Runline…and Washington in the first 5 innings..
Things are looking good for him…
Braves are bad, really bad.
I’ve taken Davey’s advice.
I’m working on a College Football Preview, Top 25, Overrated/Underrated, Best and Worst Conferences, etc.
I’ve decided to make it a massive undertaking, this thing might be done early this morning…..
My nickname has always been Jay or JayZ.
I just logged on…can someone give me a summary of why our best starter is losing to the freaking Nats?
Also, I dunno if Mac told you, but I was at the game last night. Considering how putrid the Braves played, it maybe the last time I see the Braves live for a WHILE.
Can any good come out of this year? Are we going to drive Smoltz to exhaustion again?
Big Papi just hit a Big Fly.
That sounds good 4-Seam.
Has Smoltz pitched badly or our defense let us down? Again…just logging on?
LOL the very next pitch Justin Verlander made Manny duck….Curveball right at his head.
Bad pitching Alex, but less than stellar defense.
Smoltz hasn’t been as great as usuall…
He had one really bad inning, giving up 4 runs..
Well my third cousin twice removed on my father’s side has a 3 RBIs and a homer.
Seeing Langy in center makes me a little sad.
Mostly Smoltz pitching badly, unfortunately.
Well Alex, Prat is calling a bad game and can get a hit with the bases loaded, nor could Chokerhands
Also Alex, join the fantasy football league
League ID: 468603
Draft is Thursday at 7:30
Seeing Pratt behind the plate makes me sad.
Smitty…hadn’t seen anything about this before but I am stretched too thing with 3 leagues. Thanks for the offer.
Smoltz made a great play, but still…..
How do we expect to win when we alternate our second string offense with our second string pitching?
Maggs just went deep against Bob Wick… I mean David Wells.
I would hit Adam too, with slow ass on deck and chokerhands up next
Our fate rest in Langy’s hands…oh goody.
Aex R. who means more to you, faceless people who you have never met and barely know, or us?
He pulled through!
Langy!!! He got a RBI.
Yeah Alex, how long could it take to check one more team. Plus Stu is playing and you can beat his ass!
I don’t have much confidence in Andruw in this position. I hope he proves me wrong.
Choerhands may have a hit, but I would rather have Thorman
We’re going to see some mighty hacks in a bit.
RobBroad4th you should sign up too.
Andruw has to go yard here, swing for the fence young man
I would rather not see Pratt anymore
OH my God, I have never seen anything like that in my life
Paciorek is dissapointed that Zimmerman couldn’t make the play…
Andruw hit a broken bat dribbler to Zimmerman, but the bat head hit Zimmerman’s arm and the ball rolled into left
Leave it to Giles.
FYI…my 3 leagues are all local so as much as I love you guys, there’s nothing “faceless” about these leagues. 🙂
OMG!!! Brent Clevlen just crushed one….I think he just hit Jesse Garcia on the moon.
And shockingly, a first pitch OUT for Giles. What a terrible leadoff hitter he is. So painfully being misplayed there.
Are we going to have any contest for Ron Hubbard memorabilia in the future?
Wow, Davey, you get to listen to Paciorek? Ha ha ha
You know, Paciorek was molested by a priest. Just a Paciorek factoid
I would trade Chokerhans and a mid level prospect for Church. He is a good player.
Actually…I’ve muted the tv now…and I’m listening to the play by play from the radio. There’s just so much Paciorek that I can handle on a given night.
Who does radio for the Nats?
I wish we could’ve traded Chokerhans and Salty to TB for Carl Crawford. But they have Dioner Navarro.
Javy Lopez looks weird in a BoSox uni.
I dunno Smitty. I’m listening to our guys on the radio. Pete and Joe..
Corey Patterson could have been ours for a song. He is going to steal like 50 bases this year
Why did he bring in a pinch Runner for Andrew in the sixth? With this tight of a game we are going to need his bat. Does somebody know something I don’t?
Yep…I bet the Cubbies are happy they have Juan Pierre.
Tendonitis in the knee I think, petros.
I dont think Chokerhans has much value on the free market, folks. I am even wondering about Salty’s value this offseason.
His kne is hurt, he just came in to hit for Smoltz. Look at it this way, now Bobby won’t be tempted to use Tony “Moonlight” Pena Jr.
How was that?
Probally because he can’t run on his knee that Langy caused.
I CALL FOR A CONSPRIACY!!!!!
He’s got a bad knee petros
K, cool, I missed that announcement. Now I feel better that bobby didn’t do something moronic.
Pete and Joe are music to my ears after 6 innings of Paciorek.
Should’ve done this since the first inning…
Oh so you know these people, then you should know better to play with us and not them… 😉
AJ has something for breaking his bat and hitting a baseball.
Earlier this season he had a broken bat drive up the middle that got through, tonights broken bat hit, and you can forget that broken bat Home Run to Center.
AJ is entertaining, knees, broken bats, bad shades, and all….
Jeez…Justin Verlander sucks tonight…7 BB and 1 IBB.
Wow, if I were Chokerhands (Chokey as Bobby would say) I would love my role as: “Late inning defensive replacement.”
Renteria is comming back down to Earth
Come on Chippa.
I think we’ve had the only Ron Hubbard giveaway about a month ago, with Mac sending me his Dianetics book. Fear not, my Scientologist folk, it will be resting on my bookshelf away from harm but away from any eyes that will read it. There’s plenty of fiction at your local library. OK, I’m done…
I hate to tell Chipper this, but that was a strike
I think he knows. No argument.
Wow Cora was safe
Your watching it too.
Flipping between two sinking ships Jay
Speaking of L. Ron, my buddies and I are going to have a “Battlefield Earth” night. I can’t wait.
Are the Yanks and Sox really going to have a 5 game series? I don’t think I have heard of that…at least not in a while.
I wish I had buddies…
RedBroad4th: HAHA! I take it you’re not a Scientologist?
It says the game is on FSN, yet I’m in Florida and I’ve got Best Darn Sports Show Period. What gives?
That’s the saddest thing I’ve ever heard, Davey.
LOL…I’ll be your buddy..
Scientology is for the sexually insecure.
Never heard that one. Expound?
If the Atlanta Braves Journal needs a 5th starter/Long Reliever, I’m available. Hey, I can at least outpitch Yates, Cormier, and Il-Jong.
Your loneliness saddens me.
Speaking of which, how is Kim doing in St. Louis?
Yayy… Jay’s my buddy now
Is anyone else petrified of Ken Ray?
Look at Tom Cruise. Scientology gives him the illusion of power and the ability to get rid of your problems (body thetans). Every celebrity I’ve seen as a scientologist (Travolta, Cruise, Elfman) are sexually questionable…
Kearns ears look fake
I love all you guys and yes, it would be very fun to compete with folks like Smitty & Stu, that said, I have learned my limit and 3 leagues is my max. Plus, you know I have that whole “marriage” thing that I kinda need to pay attention too…but again, appreciate the offer.
I would love to keep up with the league though as an “observer” and see who’s competing, who are the rosters…maybe Mac should have a separate “fantasy football” update page.
Oh yeah, that situation creeps me out.
I think the doctor said something like that when I was born…not sure though.
I’m sure Hayes has his own demons.
It looks like his ERA has gone down….it is 5.12
It won’t be as fun to watch Alex, I plan to dominate
Not if Bobby Dews’ crew has anything to say about that….
I didn’t do so well last time I played…I am a bit of a homer. Lots and Lots of hokies on my team…But this year I vow to pick the best.
Davey, I hate to tell you this. Bobby Dews is dead. That man cathing in our bullpen is taxidermy
Yeah I don’t know if you know this but he is on strings…
YOu could change your name to Bobby Dews’ corpse…
I saw a movie called “Bobby Dews Is Dead.”
My favorite thing about playing the Nats is waiting to see if Frank Robinson falls asleep.
I saw a movie called, “Snakes on Bobby Dews’ Corpse.”
Ray might be working in Home Depot next year.
Speaking of walking corpses…how is Al Davis doing?
That man is scary to look at.
Hey Kenny Ray, try not walking people. You stink.
Wow, I hate Ken Ray
I can’t watch anymore.
Where’s Tyler Yates?
OMG!!! Thanks Kenny.
Snakes on Ken Ray’s pitching arm..
I have to go anyway. If you find yourself on a ledge tonight, I’ll keep you company.
DId Chipper think Castro was bunting?
IF KEN RAY THROWS ANOTHER CHANGE UP, I AM GOING TO PUNCH BOBBY DEWS’ DEAD FACE!
They are working on a comedy with Bobby Dews where jonathan Silverman and Andrew McCarthy play these two bumbling friends from New York who get invited to Bobby Dews’ house on the weekend, only to find out he died and have to pretend he’s alive.
It’s called, “Weekend at Bobby’s”
Let’s leave Bobby Dews out of this!!.
He would’ve struck Schneider out with straight filth!!
Pete is saying the Braves should get Castro to lead off next year.
Oh, and Kenny Ray has offically turned into garbage. I look forward to him NOT being in the Braves bullpen next yr.
Oh, that was a creative sign.
The two best closers in the Baseball.
The guys in our bullpen are good closers too…they just happen to close it for the opposing teams…
Well the eulogy goes up if we lose this game and one more on this trip
yay! I’m leading off on opening day! WOOHOO! that’s exciting!
well I thought we were gonna get back into the game but now we’re way down AGAIN!
Hey I just noticed something…
The Nats have had run scoring innings of 4,2, and now 3.
We have had 3 and 2.
Where’s are 4 run inning?
It happened on Monday I think.
5 Things learned tonight:
1) Bobby Dews is dead
2) Langerhans is a choker
3) Todd Pratt is still in the big leagues
4) Ken Ray sucks
5) Ken Ray’s change up and fast ball are really the same pitch
Wow…Adam crushed it
I hate Ken Ray even more now
How deflating is Todd Pratt….
To’dd’ Pratt’s new nickname is Double D
Langerhans should come and paint my house…
Wait, there is something around Ryan’s neck…Oh it is his hands.
I hope Pete Orr doesn’t lead off next inning
Cora turns a nice double play
Presenting Ken “Tampa Bay Devil” Ray, in the Doghouse…
Video of Todd Pratt hitting is currently being sent to Guatanamo to torture captured terrorists.
Is he a virgin to the doghouse?
When Variteck comes back, are the Sox going to carry three catchers?
With this year’s club, there are really no Virgins in the doghouse, are there?
I think Sosa and Reitsma were whores when it came to the Doghouse.
The Reds carry three Catchers….LaRue, Valentine and Ross.
Is danny baez dead too? Why is Yates in the game? If he has a scoreless inning tomorrow in the blow out, is he going to be the closer?
yeah, $3 whores.
It’s a five part series actually Alex..
Part 2 is “The Jorge Sosa save opportunity”
Part 3 is “Tony Pena Jr..hitting machine”
Part 4 is “The Jason Shiell emergency start”
Part 5 is “Tyler Yates and the close ballgame”
Don’t forget “Reitsma’s how to hide an injury till it ruins your career”
Omar Infante is sick!
When Nicolas Cage was looking for “snuff” in 8mm…all he found was footage of our bullpen..
Yeah I like him… The Tigers have alot of good young players.
The Reds are going to win the Central and the Phillies are going to win the wild card
I am starting to think the Reds may win the Central…
Pete Orr and Marcus Giles to start us off, lets save some time and put two outs up there
Pete Orr leading off.
The bad Braves players should start their own series of “Chicken soup for the Soul” books…but call it, “Chicken sh– for the soul-less” and it could be a whole series on stupid things you just have to do.
Wow, Orr got a hit
Giles and Renteria will end the game
“Chicken sh– for the Swing at everything!”
“Chicken sh– for how to hide injuries!”
“Chicken sh– for how to steal roster spots!”
We should trade Orr, Pratt, Yates, Ray, and Tony Jr. for some more Kool-aid.
Wow, Giles just swung at a pitch Francouer woudl have taken
Only if it is Grape
I don’t know who would give up Kool-aid for that bunch…

I think it is about thim for the “Oh wow Giles hanging in there…” crap
Deal…I’ll put the call into the big ass kool-aid pitcher.
“Peterson Thomas Gord Orr”….
Wow…I feel like changing my name to that
Giles has swung at 8 balls in this AB
Yeah, that kinda rolls right off the tounge doesn’t it.
STUPID GILES!!!!!!!!!! THAT WAS BALL FOUR
DId they just say Orr was an all-star
It does appear that he has the name of two hockey icons, but then he is Canadian.
Yeah..get that eulogy started Smitty…
well we lost again in fine fashion
Maybe in Canada.
I think this performance deserves some high fives and ass slaps..
Dodgers got pounded by the AAA Marlins…15-4.
