This lineup for the Mets today got 8 hits, 3 walks and 4 runs off of Anibal Sanchez, you know the guy who had like a no-hitter through 5 or something against us. Pathetic.
Seriously, you can’t get swept by the Padres ever Thread.
Ron E. -from previous thread: you’re dreaming man. No one takes Lowe’s contract.

Braves recalled Buddy Carlyle and optioned Manny Acosta to Gwinnett. Can we get Kenny Powers instead?
“Commodore Perrying” was quite an amusing turn of phrase. Kudos.
Tim Hudson will start in Kawakami’s place vs. Marlins on Monday
#6 – good, Im tired of Acosta. BTW, Hudson is starting on Monday apparently and Kawakami is getting pushed to the pen. I guess the 6th inning yesterday made that decision for them
Tim Hudson to start for Braves’ Monday | ajc.com
I think we already got the word from spicegirl there Mac.
Lets go for the sweep! No wait, I got that backwards didn’t I :)
Right-handed starter Rich Harden and right-handed reliever Aaron Heilman have been claimed on waivers, according to major-league sources.
I’d have to have a go on Harden. He could be very good for somebody.
I’m confused. Are they going to send someone down to the minors so Hudson can come up a day before rosters expand?
14, My guess is they’ll designate Reid Gorecki on the 31st for Hudson (clears a 25-man and a 40-man spot) then activate McLouth when the rosters expand a day later.
@14: They’ve got to make sure Hudson is eligible to be on the postseason roster.
#4 – I seem to recall being assured here that Francoeur couldn’t be traded either and yet Wren not only traded him but got Ryan Church for him. $16 million is a lot to the Braves but it would make Lowe only the 3rd highest paid starting pitcher on the Yankees rotation.
17, Cashman has a brain. The jury’s still out on the same question about Minaya.
He’s our 16 million dollar 5th starter. Might as well get used to it. At the time of the signing everyone acknowledged that we overpaid. And we’ll keep overpaying for the next 3 seasons.
I think that everyone was saying that Francouer couldn’t be traded for anything of value. Well Wren had pictures of Minaya.
By the way, excellent song choice.
Thanks for the video, Mac.
not that it matters, but Lowe makes $15 mil
That’s prob one of the worst videos I’ve ever seen in my life. I couldn’t make out one word of what Dylan was singing… it just sounded like a Cri du chat baby
well Col and Fla have both lost, it would be nice to get a win
Just found/stumbled across this web site… what a great resource, especially for far-flung ATL fans like myself. (I now live in CA.) I’ll be back, for sure. Can’t believe the way the Braves dropped the first two games to Friars. That may have just killed them, sadly.
Hope this isn’t the new trend. Lose the first two then win the third.
23, You have to understand the lyrics to be able to enjoy music?
Nobody posting tonight?
those are some ugly uni’s there. are there any worse in baseball? I mean they’re not wearing shorts but seriously. who came up with pee colored togs?
I am glad we have solved the puzzle known as the San Diego Padres
is anyone else seriously impressed with matt diaz in the leadof spot? i really like it, although he will be quickly removed when nate gets back.
So, when only factoring in time spent as an Atlanta Brave, guess who has the lowest average in that lineup (besides the pitcher).
Ans. Chipper Jones
BTW, David Adam Laroche’s line as a Brave:
As a death metal fan, I can assure you that you don’t.
I’m more “pleasantly surprised” than “seriously impressed”.
@34 and 27, Lennon pretty much said the same thing at one point in the rambling two-part interview from 1970 that Rolling Stone has up right now:
Interesting read (or listen).
Nick Green pitched two shutout innings for the Red Sox tonight. He’s been a been pitcher for Boston than Smoltz.
Welcome back, Buddy.
