Hello, this is Braves infielder Pete Orr. I’ve been asked to write this game thread and given free rein to talk about whatever I want. And yes, I’m Canadian, so I’ve decided to use this opportunity to preview the upcoming Atlanta Thrashers hockey season. As I see it, the key to the Thrashers’ season is…
[5000 boring words about boring boring hockey deleted — MT]
…least they’re not the Hawks.

I know one thing, Canadians do sick things with their Uncles…
You talking bad about hockey ehh? You Yanks always bashing our sport ehh? Then no more Maple Syrup and Shania Twain for you!!!
And another thing ehh, Snakes on a Bobsled ehh.
Is this really Pete Orr?
USA won last night by 11 points. Next time Puerto Rico will beat them. Is Canada playing in Japan?
Snakes on Terrence and Phillip
Mac, what’s Pete’s full name again??
Ow wait..it’s written right there..
How pathetic of me…
At least you know you are pathetic, the Mets still don’t know it yet.
I’ve known that for years now Pedro…
Canadians aren’t pathetic, eh? We’ve got Thorman from the Great White North too, eh?
Braves pitchers can take pride in one thing over the last two days- they’re not the Red Sox staff.
NY Giants 59-45 (–)
Boston Braves 57-47 (2 GB)
St. Louis Cardinals 59-52 (3.5)
Chicago Cubs 56-52 (5)
Brooklyn Robins 49-56 (10.5)
Pittsburgh Pirates 49-56 (10.5)
Philadelphia Phillies 48-57 (11.5)
Cincinnati Reds 48-60 (13)
Boston 200 010 000 – 3 6 1 WP- Tyler
Cincy 000 010 001 – 2 8 4 LP- Ames
The Braves scored their last run on a walk and two errors. One of the errors was by George Twombly, the guy the Reds signed from Baltimore instead of Babe Ruth.
Hey Pete, how about you send me a ball(or a bat) Signed by the team?
Let’s hear it for the Columbus, Ga., Little League team. They just beat Staten Island, NY, in the Little League World Series, 3-2 in extra innings.
Philadelphia Phillies? Weren’t they called the Philadelphia Athletics?
Looks like the game is blacked out on MLB Extra Innings.
Looking like Marcus will be resting again…and Langy’s defense is not enough to keep him in the lineup with the way Diaz is hitting.
Wow, MLBTv is having a national blackout for a Braves-Marlins game, that has to be Bud’s genius at the highest level.
For anyone that wants to listen via radio…
If the Braves lost again tonight when Chuckie only giving up two solo shots to Cody Ross, I am going to give up this season.
Wow, that’s some ugly bruise on Jerry Layne’s face…
Thanks for the radio Davey. I think it is a little better than the gamechannel.
McCann again!!! Nice throw!
I was catching up on the other thread…
Brandon Jones is on the DL now and out for the season… will be having surgery on his non-throwing shoulder.
for those that get CSS… Richmond is on right now and I think (not sure) it’s a double header. Daniel Curtis is pitching the game right now.
I am thinking that Thorman should write tomorrow’s thread. What do you think?” />
Gotta give a chance to Reitsma, we may not hear from him again after this season!
You can get most of the Braves games there Jay..unless they are televised on TBS.
Pete Orr really wrote the thread?
Can you get Wickman to?
I’m really getting sick of TS games…. there’s way too many now and I can’t see em!
I am really impressed with Adam’s at bat despite grounding out…
Diaz the hitting machine…
And we bat Diaz eighth because… is there any coherent explanation? Has any ever been offered?
Davey did your stream stop working?
Mine just cut off.
Diaz hits eighth because Francoeur is still, for no reason anyone can understand, not only in the lineup but hitting sixth.
Oh, well. That was worth the risk.
ok, it’s back on. but it is delayed.
That was a good throw, I would have sent Diaz as well…
Mine suddenly died too Jay…
Ok, just making sure I wasn’t the only one.
Mine is working fine now.
Yeah, that was a tough time for Ron.
“I-i-i-i-i-i-i-i g-g-g-g-got—tttt– i-i-i-i-tttttt!
I’m out…be back later
Nice defense Adam.
Is BMAC hurt?
Brian, please learn how to keep your right hand behind your back when you are catching please…you are too damn important…
Well, I’m right handed so that’s not usually a problem. Also, when I catch, I usually have enough problems locating the ball first… oh. You mean the Brian with baseball talent.
They ya go Chuckie!!
nice job, James
Ok if you are real Thorman
I saw baseball for the first time in my life but was interested in hockey better than baseball while growing up rapidly.
It starts in October :) I iust hope would like to live in Canada someday :)
I’ve often considered it for various reasons. My father’s from Montreal, and I have fond memories of my visits. I’ve heard great things about Vancouver, but I’ve never been there. Very much like Seattle, from what I’ve heard.
I guess that hand is ok.
A walk! A palpable walk!
Frenchy walks on a 3-2 count. I think the sun will be setting in the north tonight.
That’s a bit of a rally killer.
That’s the famous Tom Glavine strikeout.
@-@ Rochey. He has a tenacity in him nowadays.
There are Franch-Canadian in Montreal I know. possibly????
I think they are gorgeous :)
If it was Marcus, Adam would have broken his back.
62 pitches in the 3rd….damnit and error.
ok…this will be a five-inning game for James tonight…
I hate error. C’mon James!!!!!!!!!
Thank god for LaRoche…
What’s the score?
Wow, check out Pete!!!
“the canadian second sacker”
What’s gotten into Peterson?
………so McCann is the only one who can deliver two outs RBIs tonight…
Chipper just can’t hit that ball over that wall…
He keeps hitting it off the wall, he should have 2 homers in this series.
Good job Andruw.
Sorry I’m late, eh? I just got back from working at the root beer factory with my best friends Ed McBrian and Brian McEdward, working off a pretty serious bender after Evgeny Malkin signed in the States. That kid can really skate, you know?
So, not even McCann can deliver now…
Come on Frenchy, lets get one of those 2 out Rbis.
Frenchy and his two-out RBIs!!!
If Adam can run faster…
If he would’ve just stopped it would 4-1.
Frenchy drives in those 2-out runs just often enough to excuse the rest of his performance.
As for Montreal, there’s a sizable English-speaking minority in the city in the city, mostly on the west side of the city. Until the 1960s, English-speakers dominated the city’s business and culture.
Rathbun has forgotten that the pitcher got a hit off of James in the last inning, but then Rathbun is stupid.
Montreal is a nice city, but I always find Canadian cities boring. I guess I will appreciate them more when I get older.
Nice easy inning for Chuckie!
James, fortunately, is not stupid.
I just realized that that should read “5000 boring words aboot boring boring hockey deleted”. Sorry.
Well, Mac, Rathbun being stupid is pretty much a well establish fact on this board…
Did we just see a commercial based around being pulled over for driving while black?
I didn’t know Mark Lemke had a Myspace.
I hate that leftfield in Miami…
Chipper is just missing it all damn series.
Even the LOOGYs don’t work on the kid anymore.
McCann again and again!!!!
Just offer McCann 8 years and $80 million now, and hope he takes it.
Frankly, I think that the Canadians are obsessed with me and not the other way around.
That’s a homer anywhere else.
GameDay has that 10 feet beyond the wall…
At least Paronto is in and not Yates.
2% poverty ,Rochey. I like Rochey :)
Pittsburgh came back from a 6-run deficit to tie it in Cincinnati. Maybe if they win it’ll count for 2 or 3 in the standings.
Damn, Damn, Damn.
The bullpen strikes again!
Get out of this so we can get to Baez and Wickman.
SKip said we should go after Rudy Seanez.
He was DFA today.
Which is more frightening, that Skip would say we should go after a 37-year-old Seanez, or that (looking at Yates and Paronto) we probably should?
good job Pete…
Good job Giles..
Renty is back…whoo…Chuckie should get the win
Never mind about Pittsburgh. They are not going to win.
As much as I hate to say it I hope the Mets beat the Rockies tonight.
Baez did his part. Will “house” do his?
1-2-3 for Baez!!!
Chip and Skip are perverted….
SC:”the rain starts to fall and the fans scatter for cover”
SC: “like it or not the are getting a wet t-shirt contest”
CC: “I know I like it”
SC:” oh, me too!”
1 more Wickamania!!!
hey, a winning streak.
James got a win. He deserves it
That was pretty fantastic work oot there, eh? I’m gonna go pop me a Labatt Blue.
I with you ACAR,
I’m gonna pop me a Tropicana Fruit punch…
Cup a coffee, then several Becks.
Wickman’s my new hero.
Bottoms up Alex :)
