Time for that game again

The Braves have another 2-0 lead early. Okay, guys, when will they blow this one?

The winner is: The seventh inning! I really despise Gryboski right now, and Reitsma is getting there.

  1. For those of you who don’t have Turner South, be glad you didn’t just see Josias Manzanillo celebrate like it was the seventh game of the World Series when he got Andruw Jones (imagine that) to whiff on strike three to end the 8th inning.

  2. What stage of grief entails crushing one’s head into brick walls repeatedly? Oh, yeah — the anger stage. I’m catching up to you, Mac.

  3. I think it may be time to stop thinking it’s all about injuries. This team just is not very good. Mediocre starting pitching, poor offense, pathetic bullpen, atrocious defense. What else do you need? I just don’t think this team is going to turn it around.

  4. I have saeson tix… so I think the next game I go to I will have to take a “Hey Bobby, what’s wrong with Juan Cruz???” sign…
    I am really beginning to hate the decisions being made for bullpen usage .

  5. I’m definitely in despair. ltc has it right. The question soon will be who the Braves will deal. A few teams could use Drew, and Base12 actually might look interesting.

  6. I really can’t understand how Pendleton et al can continue to allow Andruw to have the kind of at-bats he’s having. He’s seeing sliders and curveballs off the outside of the plate every pitch! Not only has he lost most of the plate discipline it looked like he found in ’02, he’s trying to pull every single pitch. Does anyone else notice this? Do they really not have some old guy throw him curve after curve in batting practice and force him to try to drive the ball the other way?

    Howzabout we fire Pendleton and replace him with… Julio Franco. It’ll save Time Warner a few bucks, and he certainly knows a thing or two about hitting. Put his mind into Andruw’s body, and the combination wins an MVP.

  7. Well, Pendleton can’t go up and hit for Andruw. Andruw has been like this ever since he came up at 19 through a succession of hitting coaches. The problem is not the coach–it’s Andruw. Always has been, always will be.

  8. I know he’s done this before, but it seems like there are periods where he figures it out, and starts walking more/going the other way. It’s just frustrating to watch.
