That is Not Good: Braves 6 – KC 9

This game is not worth much of a recap. Here’s what I’ve got. 1. Bad Julio is back with a vengeance. His playoff role needs to be seriously reconsidered. 2.1 innings, 6 hits, 1 W, 2 HBPs, 1K, 6 runs. Even without giving up any HRs, he managed to lose a game in one inning. … Continue reading “That is Not Good: Braves 6 – KC 9”

I Have No Idea What to Think: Phils 5 – Braves 4

There has to be something wrong with me. I must have totally screwed up my biorhythm.  And I was so excited for tonight’s game thinking I could be the guy that recaps on the night the Braves clinch at least a tie for the division. I had the recap half written in my head with … Continue reading “I Have No Idea What to Think: Phils 5 – Braves 4”

Folty-licious: Braves 7 – Blue Jays 2

After whiffing on the recap last week, I’m anxious to put one out expeditiously this week. So, naturally, it’s the day after Labor Day and school starts and work is backed up.  By the time I leave at 7pm and make my way through traffic, I’ve missed the first inning.  The first was the most … Continue reading “Folty-licious: Braves 7 – Blue Jays 2”

I’m Fried – Braves 5 – shMets 3

I’m Fried I’m Fried And Fried-dom tastes of victory I’m Fried I’m Fried An’ I’m pitching for the Braves against the Mets machine If I had what it takes To reach the highest high You’d laugh and say ‘fix that bullpen’ But with Soroka and Fried onboard Messiahs pointed to the playoffs And no one … Continue reading “I’m Fried – Braves 5 – shMets 3”

I Won’t Back Down: Braves 12 – Minnyhaha 7

“You can stand me up at the Gates of Hell, but I won’t back down.” Not only one of my favorite lyrics but probably an all time great lyric. Apply that to the Braves tonight. With Folty on the mound and Culberson at SS, having lost two games in a row by the skin of … Continue reading “I Won’t Back Down: Braves 12 – Minnyhaha 7”

The Story of Julio, the Prodigal Sons, and The Awful Endgame: Braves 11 – gNats 8

Didn’t get home from the game tonight until after midnight so I’m going to have to make this short and sweet. Tuesday was a wonderful night for me as I got to go to the game and watch all the despondent gNats fans leaving the game at various intervals until, really, only Braves fans remained. … Continue reading “The Story of Julio, the Prodigal Sons, and The Awful Endgame: Braves 11 – gNats 8”

Braves 4 – The Royal Bottom Dwellers 5

This game is one where the Braves should make hay, so to speak.  Instead, we were pretty pitiful.  What came out of it first is a question. Should Danny Duffy be a trade target? Has he gotten himself back to where he once was as a potential future ace? The second is a rant. Why … Continue reading “Braves 4 – The Royal Bottom Dwellers 5”

Tuesday, Of Course – Braves 1 – BrewCrew 13

I’m tired.  I didn’t get home from work until after the game started.  I don’t feel very creative, but, on the other hand, it’s Tuesday. How creative do you have to be when you already know the Braves are gonna lose. And, frankly, I’ve got a lot going on around here and I’m losing interest … Continue reading “Tuesday, Of Course – Braves 1 – BrewCrew 13”
