Since the Marlins obviously have wrapped up the division, we need a win here to stay in wildcard position.

I am not continuing the conceit but rest assured I still think Francoeur is a giant whiny baby game thread: July 25, Braves at Phillies

man this is a great quote…
While some fans might have felt Anderson appeared lackadaisical during his pursuit of those balls, Cox supported his outfielder by explaining that he simply looks graceful when he’s running.
“He gets to balls,” Cox said. “He’s a glider. He glides so easy.”
anyways, with Chip and Mac out of the lineup any guesses at what Bobby will run out there?
Who was telling me a couple of days ago that the Marlins didn’t have enough pitching to threaten?
It’s over, I tell you.
2. Ruben Gotay
3. Jeff Francoeur
4. Corky Miller
5. Garrett Anderson
9. The Samurai
I guess I should have put Norfante in the lineup somewhere.
If KJ homers in each of his ABs, we have a chance.
Bobby would play Infante at 3rd over Prado wouldnt he?
Maybe. I originally had Infante there, but Prado hasn’t gotten the start yet, and I figured it would make some sense to get him in there today.
check out this line
6-11 3-2B 1HR 4RBI 4BB 2K .545/.688/1.091
I am glad Andruw is doing well in the American League.
Good that Kawakami got his first win in his last start. Otherwise he will easily be 0-2 with today’s lineup.
I bet he must be thinking, “Man, the lineup of my former team back in Japan is much better than that!”
had Boyer not come into the game yesterday, we would’ve had another 1-run loss
it’s a day game! lineup
Ross (thought he was on DL)
If we are able to win today, it will be a miracle.
effects of being sent down?
Gregor Blanco 7-32 1BB 10K .242/.250/.492
my lineup would have been…
a day without chipper and mccann would be a good day to test schafer in the leadoff role.
“Is a dream a lie if it don’t come true? Or is it something worse?”
Ah, nothing like playing hookie to catch day game on the couch….gotta love them Kelly days!
our cleanup is hitting .133
I have a sneaking suspicion that JeffBlog is ghost-written by some poor PR intern. I’ve been wrong before, though. Maybe Frenchy’s just got a good editor and a pocket thesaurus.
Please distribute a liberal sprinkling of “F-ing”s in the following statement.
We better not get swept by the fish… it won’t end the season, but it will be mighty obnoxious.
oh, and Dave Ross may be able to come off the DL today… well, it has been 15 days since he went on (April 1st), but I don’t know if he’s healthy enough for it.
On the radio Bobby just said Ross is ready to go. Of course, (while explaining Chipper’s bruise) he also said he can still feel the first jam he got in 1960.
Things like Francouer’s Blog give a bad name to the First Amendment.
Wait… does Gregor Blanco really have an ISO of .250?
Schafer’s movin on up!
Nice and easy 1-2-3 inning for Kammy!
Was that really an inning where one of our pitchers didn’t throw over 30 pitches?
Man, I love Yunel.
Yay, our cleanup hitter is up!
According to ESPN’s gamecast, ball four was right down the middle of the plate. Is this true?
It was upstairs at the letters.
Damn, was that the shuuto? That was nasty.
If that was a double play ball, it may count as an error and a Prado.
Thank you, Kelly.
Commando Cody, Ladies and Gentlemen.
Kelly just took his mind off the play and dropped the ball in anticipation of throwing it to first.
Annnnd, doesn’t look good for us now.
I was just starting to think about taking a long lunch break to listen to this game. Might as well stay and get something done.
I feel like someone asks this everyday, but is anyone else having mlb.tv problems
What the hell is it about Cody Ross?
I absolutely hate Cody Ross.
TomL, I saw that homerun very clearly on mlb.tv unfortunately.
a little stuttery on MLB.TV not bad though.
TomL been working well for me the last few days after lots of trouble in the beginning.
It’s even working with the “nextdef” plugin right now.
Wait, wait, don’t tell me… Kelly had to move to his right?
I just don’t understand how a guy who is clearly so athletic can have such a problem with a play I’ve been making with ease since I was 9.
Also, from the last thread: The guy complaining about how we didn’t fill “any holes” was just hilarious. I can’t remember who said it first, but if you remember before the Vazquez deal our starting rotation looked like this:
There just weren’t too many bullpen options out there that made sense, and all the guys we’re complaining about now looked like they’d be good options. (Also, Wren actually didn’t spend “nothing” on the ‘pen, he added Boone Logan and O’Flaherty.) We had much bigger needs than to throw big money at redundancies like Putz of K-Rod, and as much as I like Ohman its not like he’s a sure thing, and by the time his price had come down he was probably ready to move on after the early lowball offer(s) the Braves made.
Gadfly, KJ dropped the ball before he was able to turn the double play.
Reality check time:
W-L Record: 5-3
Games ahead of Phillies: 0.5
Games ahead of Mets: 1.0
Games behind wildcard: 0.5
Team OPS: .814, 2nd best in the NL
Team Slugging%: .480, leads NL
Let’s keep things in perspective here.
@47: Oh, it was on the turn? Weird, he’s usually alright on that… I wince everytime the guy goes up the middle. I love the guy, and his offense is a huge plus from 2B, but he still hasn’t figured out that play, which just baffles me.
Playing the Nationals sure does help.
damn nice pitch.
GO GARRET! (I had to, since no one else would…)
Marlins played the Nats for three already too, and we’re still ahead of them in OPS and Slugging.
We’ve had a couple early struggles, but that’s bound to happen. We’ll get things together soon enough… I like how we’re looking. (Though to be fair I haven’t had to physically watch any of the losses.)
Slugging left fielder……
Kawakami looking good now…
Good inning for Kenshin.
Schafer has struck out like 9 times in his last 12 at-bats, or something crazy like that.
I have to say that I really love the new MLB.TV Premium. It’s got neat features and good quality.
Timo, i just lost my feed, any problems by you?
HE’S A WHIFF MACHINE
so did I, as I wrote it actually… I changed to the “Away Feed” FSFL-HD and it works.
oldtimer? I did too. I lost my feed for the entire bottom half of the inning. But it’s back now.
back now, oddity, still like the service, much better than two years ago.
Shafer has a hole in is swing and the league has found it quick. Let’s see how he adjusts.
maybe he should visit the Rangers’ hitting coach…
How did Anderson not score there?
Ha! we should keep ripping him.
Hey, go Frenchy!
Wow, the Frenchy bashing has been pretty quiet so far this season….
there he goes silencing his critics with his clutchness again…
Wow, the black hole of awfulness came through.
Nice cut Jeff. 3 good AB’s in a row for the Braves.
Ahhh, that’s more like it. Just didn’t seem like bravesjournal without a Frenchy bashing post.
Is Joe Simpson reading this thread? He just echoed what Smitty said about the hole in Schafer’s swing.
Schafer is piling up the K’s this week.
Schafer needs a day off.
Timo, the only problem with MLB.TV is thta they are some 60 seconds behind Gameday and I can’t help checking. Takes away a lot of fun to know the Marlins will be up 4-2 a minute before you actually watch it happen.
Just checking, why is Yunel out of the game??
Oh, and where are my beloved condensed games?? They were advertised, but there are none. Or is it just my incompetence to find them?
are they under archive? I havent checked yet.
it is sow today, since the 4th inning when it hiccuped.
Tom, I agree, you gotta keep from checking gameday 😉
I haven’t found the condensed games yet either. Loved the feature.
Cary, looks like he pulled something running to first during his last AB.
The anti-Prado by Prado.
Ok, Sciambi just said “plus defender wherever you put him.”
What the heck is an “injured chest”??
Thanks, RJ. Doesn’t sound too serious at least.
Frenchy at .314 on the season, 2 two out rbis today
So who had Anderson and Francoeur as the big bats today?
Whoa — Dan Meyer?
#90 – Kawakami went 2-2 also
I love my new job. We just went to the 755 Club for lunch.
#91, I think he pitched earlier this series too.
how does a pitcher have this line
5.1IP 11H .478BAA – ERA 1.69
Jeff Bennett is the luckiest pitcher in the league at this point
How many Grybos does Bennett have on the season?
In addition to Anderson and Francouer (@90), who had Bennett coming in and pitching two strong innings?
Ouch, what are the chances of us playing wife swap with our hitting coach and The Rangers hitting coach?
I hate Field Commander Ross.
Swept by the fish… the indignity of it all.
Well, we got swept in April. I guess it’s all over. Trade everyone. Rebuild. Repent. The end is nigh.
Recap is up.
