I will not bring back Phil Collins game thread: Braves at Pirates, May 10 Posted by Mac Thomason | May 10, 2008 | Game Threads 2010 | 62 Here is some Hall & Oates. Again, I like Hall & Oates, but they made some really bad videos. Even in 1983, that was some cheap CG. Share:
This is my wife’s favorite H & O song………just throwing that out there.
over at the official site: “Braves look to Kelly Johnson’s bat to try and even up the series”
uhhh, lefty on the mound. Unless Infante borrows Kelly’s bat I don’t think we’ll see much of him.
You guys are like it. I am probally too late anyway. You’ve probally already seen it.
Chuck James, may the force be with you.
Free Phil Stockman.
Did people see this article on Leo? He wants back in: http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news;_ylt=AmpsND9p3v_VvTRJDDbizuwEvLYF?slug=ap-boredmazzone&prov=ap&type=lgns
Willie Harris is 60 pounds overweight in that video.
This first-inning bunt thing is (fill-in the blank).
Bay “sautering over?” Huh Boog?!
…and then Frenchy walked…
Good start for Chuck.
mighty nice of the pirates to leave mclouth out of the lineup tonight–he’s been a tough out
I thought that LaRoche foul ball was gone. That thing had a wicked hook to it.
God, Ron Gant is stupid.
Denny Neagle, I believe.
It’s Neagle. Another former Pirate.
Seriously, did Gant fall on his head when he fell off that dirtbike? How could he forget Avery?
He was out.
Well, the awful call at first cost us a run.
Aaaaand the bad call hurts us.
I’ve nailed the last 3 AFLAC trivia questions, which I think is a personal record.
The game should be tied. Blown call.
So does the blown call by the ump mean the Braves are entitled to a make up call like earlier this season?
Hampton won 14 games in 03, he’s been the closest since.
Maybe he’ll come back and win 15 this year.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, I kill me.
For a team that bunts all the time, the Braves sure suck at it.
Hey, here’s an idea… If you can’t get bunts down, you could stop bunting!
This Infante/KJ platoon is horrible. “Hey, let’s use the guy with the .298 career OBP to lead off!” Is Bobby senile?
I’m fine with a pitcher bunting there.
I’m watching the Pittsburgh feed on Extra Innings & the Bucs announcers are going on & on about what a break they got.
Even when I played baseball, I hated it when the ump wouldn’t make the obvious call (i.e.,—the ball beat the runner, so he’s probably out) & they’d come up with, “No, you missed the tag,” or “You came off the bag too early” or some other way to justify their existence.
That guy was so out at first it was a joke.
The Braves should bring Otis in to conduct a clinic.
Infante has 2 hits tonight.
Gant is arrogantly dumb.
I’ll say this… I think Sciambi is more willing to say what he thinks with Gant in the booth than Simpson. During the last week, he’s said that he doesn’t believe in “protection” and questioned whether position players should be bunting. It’s almost like he’s read books or something.
gant sounds like he’s calling a golf match…ZZZ
James with 76 pitches through 5, so is he done?
perhaps we should get gant & lemke in the booth together.
Time to score some runs.
Okay, Chipper… time to bunt!
no, Chipper, you’re supposed to give Frenchy batting tips not take them from him
OK, beedee, that’s going to give me nightmares.
i’m shocked…the braves hit into another DP
sorry…it gave me chillz as i typed
I hate this. Maybe I should just pay attention to home games from now on.
I actually agree with Gant about James needing to pitch inside more. He’s got to keep them off balance better.
well we are playing the pirates, so winning is rarely in the cards
it is beginning to look like the 08 Pirates are the Braves version of the 07 Reds–a mediocre NL Central team that Atl has trouble beating
Two walks to the .200 hitting Huckleberry? That’ll win games.
The Pirates broadcast just showed a stat that Chucky was the third best in the majors at stranding runners in scoring position with 2 outs since last year.
Of course this is because he had already given up a home run to clear the bases with one out.
And then that happened…
i think the Nat’s have moved to Pit
now setting up the opportunity to walk Gorzelanny again
hindsight is 20/20 here and I don’t mean this to be critical of Cox (there are so many other opportunities), but Chucky should have been lifted after 5
I have reached the conclusion that Bobby is betting against the Braves. That’s the only thing that makes sense for how he is managing the pitching staff lately.
@51 “should have been lifted after five”
I said the same thing to my wife as we started the 6th. It really makes no sense to leave him in, considering his history.
So I guess we are depending on Norton to win this one for us too, huh?
Has Infante virtually guaranteed a platoon now?
I hate this brain block against the Buccos. I blame the high-powered offense.
This would be the 6th consecutive road loss – it’s time to ditch these blue batting practice jerseys.
You suck, Jeff.
Seriously, he swings at a pitch shoulder high when you need baserunners. He’s such a worthless piece of crap. I hate him.
Recap, in which I basically call Bobby out, is up.
This just in Brian Jordan is stupid.
Maybe he’s angling for Bobby’s job.
