ESPN – Braves vs. Nationals – Box Score – April 30, 2008 This team couldn’t medal at the Special Olympics. First off, they once again let some random guy — in this case, Shawn Hill — look like Tom Seaver, scratching only one run off him in eight innings. Jair Jurrjens did great, going seven, … Continue reading “Nationals 3, Braves 2 (12 innings)”
I think that the Braves should sign a little person. I mean, really little, tiny strike zone. Lead him off in every road game, and when he walks, run Kotsay for him. I think this could work. Lord knows we need baserunners. I know that some will say that this is a mockery of the … Continue reading “Eddie Gaedel, pioneer game thread: Braves at Nats April 30”
ESPN – Braves vs. Nationals – Box Score – April 29, 2008 Ecch. Not that I needed anything else to make me tired of the f-ing Nats. I think half their wins are against us. Of course, nearly half their games have been, seemingly. First, the good news: Chipper and Escobar were back in the … Continue reading “Nats 6, Braves 3”
I didn’t want it to come to this, but the Braves leave me no choice. Until they prove to me that they can win a close game, I will show nothing but Phil Collins and Phil Collins-era Genesis music videos! There is seemingly an infinite supply. This is nothing. He’s done much worse. And the … Continue reading “Dropping the C Bomb game thread: Braves at Nats, again, April 29”
This schedule was apparently made by monkeys. And not an infinite number, either. 3, 4 of them tops. Today’s bonus video (tomorrow: Armageddon!) is dedicated to Roger Clemens!
ESPN – Braves vs. Mets – Box Score – April 27, 2008 Over the last few years, the Braves seem to have a lot of these Sundays where they don’t show up. This was one of them. John Smoltz wasn’t right, and this time wasn’t able to pitch through it, giving up four runs in … Continue reading “Mets 6, Braves 3”
I thought that instead of a music video we could watch a TV show.
ESPN – Braves vs. Mets – Box Score – April 26, 2008 So, I think that’s 0-8 in one-run games. This is extremely frustrating, and I may have to take Steps. The Braves went up 1-0 in the first — without the benefit of giving away an out on a bunt! KJ, hitting third (Chipper … Continue reading “Mets 4, Braves 3”
So, where do I go from here?
ESPN – Braves vs. Mets – Box Score – April 25, 2008 Another reason to despise the bunt: it’s a good way to get a player hurt. After getting the leadoff man on in the first, Bobby decided to have Escobar bunt again. And the team’s only shortstop got the bunt down only to have … Continue reading “Braves 6, Mets 3”
