Water-damaged Game Thread: Braves at Phillies, Sept. 3 Posted by Mac Thomason | Sep 3, 2006 | Game Threads 2006 | 58 We’re in America’s birthplace to play baseball, so here are some Irish guys watching a football game. And here’s more football, to a familiar song: Share:
No more football, please. x_x Not until next Saturday.
I wouldn’t be surprised if McCann got the day off with Pratt catching one game and Pena doing the other. Also, any chance Aybar will get some time at 2B with Marcus out? I realize we’ve got a glut if MIs, but I figure we traded for him because he was better than the lot. 😉
I don’t think the Braves can afford to sit McCann 2 games, although I wouldn’t be surprised if Pratt starts game 1. I was kind of surprised Aybar wasn’t in there yesterday.
Remember that Brayan Pena’s been called up. Hopefully he’ll get a start instead of Pratt.
NY Giants 65-51 (–)
Boston Braves 65-52 (.5 GB)
Chicago Cubs 64-58 (4)
St. Louis Cardinals 64-60 (5)
Pittsburgh Pirates 55-63 (11)
Philadelphia Phillies 54-63 (11.5)
Cincinnati Reds 55-65 (12)
Brooklyn Robins 54-64 (12)
Boston 000 000 004 – 4 13 1 LP- Tyler
Philly 240 001 00x – 7 11 2 WP- Alexander
Lefty Tyler did his Kyle Davies impression and was gone in the 2nd inning. And yes, that’s Grover Cleveland (Pete) Alexander as winning pitcher. The Giants swept a doubleheader from Brooklyn to retake the lead- they’re piling up for eevryone.
Groan. Brayan Pena did get called up, right? Does Cox know that?
So yesterday at 5:00 in the morning I woke up in the worst pain ever. Thankfully, my room mate was here and took me to the ER. I had a kidney stone, so I was in the ER until noon. THey thought they might have to go get it, but they sent me home instead. I got home in time to see Adams gam winning bomb and get ready to host a Tennessee party. It was crazy
Aybar batting 3rd? Diaz 7th? Oh, whatever… Let’s just hope nobody gets struck by lightning.
Forgot to mention how hysterical that “Apache” video was from the other day. I’m glad to see our civilization has crept a tiny bit forward from that era.
It did, however, remind me a little of this episode of self-humiliation, courtesy of Billy Squier:
How did we get a run? GameDay won’t open right now, for some reason…
Smitty: I had a kidney stone last year. I’m sorry to hear it happened to you too. No one should have to go through that kinda pain.
Yikes, with the kidney stones.
Speaking of kidney stones, here’s Diaz and Pratt ruining a perfectly good scoring opportunity.
Number 50. Tim, you made history. The way pets make earth.
This is so depressing. And I’ve already given up on the season. I was sortof hoping they’d finish at .500, but it doesn’t look like that’ll happen.
That was great Brian
Hudson is absolutely worthless. We should’ve made the Dodgers take him in the Betemit deal.
Now we can’t do nothing with Moyer’s slop.
Kill me now.
And he’ll get at least one more AB.
JUST KNOCK HOWARD DOWN ALREADY!
Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron and Willie Mays never hit four homers in a game. Of course, none of them faced our pitching staff.
I hate Bob Rathbun and Jeff Torborg gushing of Ryan Howard. Worst Braves announcers ever.
Who is starting game two? Without looking I bet it’s Cormier. Eight games under seems almost inevitable. This season won’t even end dignified most likely.
The team looks lifeless right now. This is shaping up to be a 1-6 or at best 2-5 road trip. Just too many injuries and too many crappy pitchers. Wait till next year?
What does it say about the team’s offense when Pratt is providing the runs?
The same thing it says when Brian Jordan is hitting in an important situation or Willy Aybar is batting 3rd; you really didn’t think this team through very well.
This is beyond depressing…
Can somebody get Bob Rathbun and Ryan Howard a room?
Whew, Howard only singled. No records tied against us today. I hope.
they could get the room right next to Chip Caray and Carlos Beltran…
No TV for the second game? Oh well, it’s probably better that way.
Why was Hudson pitching to Howard with a right handed hitter next ???????????????????????? Please somebody explain ……..3 homeruns .. how stupid can you get ???
Jeremy, I thought Turner South said yesterday they would have both of Sunday’s games. Where did you get your information?
DOB just mentioned it on his blog, Dan.
Come on LaRoche!
Now we’ve got to win. How embarrassing would it be to lose to a guy named Fabio?
In the meantime…Jeffrey has raised his avergage above Andruw’s…
Diaz, all the Braves need is a base hit. Come on.
Free Chipper Jones!
Hmm. Ok. I take it back about lifeless. Yay!
I love Matt Diaz.
How does this even happen
He tattooed that ball the other way. What a swing.
Atleast our offense has some pride..
and Howard is done for the this game.
Three outs now. Come on, Wickman.
c’mon double play ball
ARGH! Even Wickmania has failed us.
What a terrible throw by Langerhans.
And that’s that. UGH!
7 games under .500
Dagger in the heart… UGH! You can’t put Wickman in the doghouse though. He’s given us a month of relief from 9th inning blown saves.
That’s our season in a nutshell. This team SUCKS big time. How many one-run games did we lose? Abiut 40, I guess…
I’m not a fan of tennis, but I am a fan of Andre Aggassi. Good luck to him in the future..
