  1. For anyone curious, LaRoche is on Outside The Lines this morning… Anyone who thought he had mental problems… you’re right.

  2. 1914 Update:

    Boston Braves 77-55 (–)
    NY Giants 74-59 (3.5 GB)
    Chicago Cubs 72-64 (7)
    St. Louis Cardinals 71-64 (7.5)
    Philadelphia Phillies 64-71 (14.5)
    Pittsburgh Pirates 62-71 (15.5)
    Brooklyn Robins 59-74 (18.5)
    Cincinnati Reds 56-77 (21.5)

    Today’s Game:
    St.Lou 100 000 000 – 1 7 0 LP- Sallee
    Braves 100 200 02x – 5 9 1 WP- Rudolph

    Not much to say here. Slim Sallee would finish 5th in the NL in ERA at 2.10, but would only have an 18-17 record.

  3. LaRoche apparently has a “serious” form of ADD… had to get a waiver from MLB to be allowed to take whatever medication he is taking for it. I forgot the name of the med, just that it’s on the MLB banned list.

    Hopefully they replay it soon.

  4. The Outside The Lines segment was dedicated to LaRoche and his Ritalin medication, which contains a banned substance…there was some talk about how he’s torn it up since taking the medication and some debate as to whether he should be allowed to take it. They also talked about the infamous play earlier this season where Nick Johnson beat him to the bag.

  5. hanley fouled a ball off the inside of his toe and they came out to check on him for a second while he hobbled around… he’s fine though

  6. well…. he was going out… they got a good jump… throw was a bit up the line… it was pretty close but if the throw had not been up the line he would’ve been out

  7. Marcus caught the ball running towards the foul line in shallow right field. The runner tagged, and marcus made a weak throw up the 3rd base line. A weak throw home would have nailed the runner.

  8. Are the Marlines’ pitcher good or the Braves’ hitting bad?
    The Braves make me feel undefined feelings whenever they meet the Marlines. Huh?

  9. Brian’s hit two today… liner caught at second and a bloop down the left field line that was barely caught

    sorta just a slow …quiet game

  10. Nice outing by Hudson today: 7 inn. 3 hits, 1 run. It sure would have been nice to have this type of preformance be the norm for him, instead of the exception. Of course, he always seems to pitch better on short rest, for some reason.

  11. And just like that, we lose the lead. I’m so glad Yates has become our 8th inning man, I don’t know where we’d be without him [sarcasm, in case you didn’t catch it].

  12. Wow, just… wow. I left to ask someone a Latin question and came back to find this. I should have just stayed with the Latin.

  13. So, the first four guys just need to get on base, then Orr will have to hit a five-run homer. It’s as possible as it is likely.

  14. The Marlins are apparently feeling so guilty about victimizing Yates and Paronto- kind of like kicking a puppy, really- that they’ve decided to give us the game.
