Braves Content and Community
Eric Stults and Trevor Cahill delenda est.
delenda sunt? I should have paid more attention in class.
Excited for Must-See Shelby today.
If you’re a fan of baseball history, you may find this interesting:
I didn’t get to see the game, and based on the box score, it’s tough to say whether Cahill or Stults pitched better. It’s too close to call, but that’s good. A little healthy competition never hurts.
“The Braves have certainly upgraded defensively, adding a Gold-Glove right-fielder”
Gotta love the national broadcast
Our offense needs to get it going at some point. It’s been awhile since we’ve put up any runs.
Will the Braves score again this season? Will Gomes and AJP continue to play or be put out to pasture?
Cakes would have been so good to have on last year’s team.
@9 A game and a half
For those who have played a sport that has a clubhouse: What on earth does “policing the clubhouse” mean?
Bases loaded pop-fly!!! Good thing these aren’t the 2014 Braves and are so fun to watch.
Callaspo needs to be delenda-ed too.
Callaspo can also be Delendaed For Assignment, as far as I am concerned.
Edward may disagree, but Andrelton, not Jason, is really Superman. That said, the bat is again Andrelton’s kryptonite.
Hey look, a run!
And now a second run.
Andrelton is Superman. Jason’s just a really good mortal ballplayer.
BJ Upton is Lex Luthor?
We scored! Twice!
Johnny Gomes beating out a grounder and AJP turning into one for the good of the team is the epitome of gritty baseball
Radio team just mentioned this, first I’d heard of it – hope Wright can come back, but it looks rough.
Guh, come on Shelby.
Not how you draw it up, but we’ll take it.
@15 – I missed your comment somehow, but it looks like there is a consensus.
Edit: I also went back and forth between delenda-ed delenda’d and delendaed.
Damn Romans complicated English conjugation, Rusty.
Good inning, Jim Johnson. Jim, the Last of the Johnsons.
@23 That is awful news about Wright. One of the few Mets (maybe the only one) I respect. Hope he can overcome this, but it does sound bad.
I love Andrelton Simmons.
So that was a ridiculously great play.
Johnathan Brock’s Ton
He is a large man.
Nick Masset clearly wants to fit in with this slovenly, pathetic bunch in the bullpen.
This inning could be going better. Pierzynski is a statue behind the plate.
Whew. I hope again. Thank you, Feliz Navidad.
Well, that sucks.
We are at the game. Not sure what Freddie was doing there. Need a run so we can get to the green lot and to I-75.
Fredi, you doofus. Pressure!
The number of times Fredi has run Freddie into a strike Em out throw em out…
He used to do it with Uggla at the plate and Freddie on first
Who’s left in the pen, the Shunts Cabal? Is this now Avilan’s game?
On the bright side, Cahill didnt go very long last night
They’re showing The Sandlot on the big screen after the game. Watch this thing go 18 innings.
Andrelton Simmons is such a disciplined hitter
Goddammit! Move, you fat ass!
That really stinks. And probably really hurt the ump.
Now the fans want to kill the third base ump. Interesting.
Why do we still have EYJ?
Hey a walk off!
Wheee! I’m glad to see jace walk off
I now hope that ball didn’t break the umpire’s leg.
Hope to see a lot more of those!
Jace is a great pickup. I think the Padres are stupid
Both trades we made with the Padres were bad ones for them. I’m not sure why they did either one.
The Justin Upton trade is looking like an absolute swindle. Jace Peterson is looking like a useful piece at the very least, Mallex Smith is destroying AA, and even Dustin Peterson, the lottery ticket in the deal, was having a nice little season prior to the bus crash. And that’s without the prize of the deal having thrown a single pitch in a Braves uniform to date.
The Padres are trying to win a World Series. What they gave up, in their mind, pales in comparison to the banner and the trophy.
Justin Upton is sporting a 152 OPS+. I’m sure the Padres have never been happier to get swindled.
By the way, this now makes Shelby Miller’s eighth start with two or fewer earned runs allowed.
We should thank the Padres to take BJ’s contract while still giving us their best pitching prospect. I think we did quite well in each of the Justin, Heyward, Gattis, and Kimbrel trade.
Towards the end of May, the Braves are 2.5 games from a Wild Card spot.
I feel like everything the Padres did made sense, but they just didn’t do enough of it. Like, they actually didn’t push the envelope far enough. I suppose they must be trying to deal Hunter Renfroe for a shortstop or whatever.
Mallex Smith went 8-12 over the last 4 games with 6 steals. That kid.
also of note, Jose Peraza hit his first 2 HR of the season in consecutive games to push his slg over .400
You sure, Alex?
