Then you must live with the fact that you are a JINX..... j/k.

I went on Wednesday night and they won so I gotta blame it on somebody.

Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Win 2 lose 2, win 1 lose 2. This seems to be our way of play. This not only will get us out of the division race quick it will also get us out of the wild card race even faster. We have got to pick things up & pretty fast. If we was to lose Smoltz for any amount of time then we can pretty much kiss any playoff hope goodbye.

Smoltz is obviously pitching way less than 100%. I am really concerned about his arm right now. I think he needs to miss at least one start & maybe even a couple. He has already set out one scheduled start & been on the 15-day DL. He may be heading for even bigger problems if some other options aren't examined. I know he's pushing himself due to our pitching situation but this could get worse for him though.

I don't wanna lose him for any time period either but he appears to have some type problem that may need to give him some considerable rest. He may even have a major arm problem that's getting worse because he has experienced arm problems in the past. Let's hope not & maybe a missed start or two can help him.

Our offense now appears to be as solid as any in the NL. Tex has came in & showed his abilities especially his power. Mahay definitely is gonna help us in the bullpen & Dotel the same. This doesn't solve our SP issue & now with Smoltz having problems then this is not good news. We may have to go after someone with the waiver deals. We don't need anybody offensively because those were addressed at the trade deadline.

We have two series starting this coming week with the Mets & Phils. This is gonna tell us how & where we stand for a possible playoff push. We need to take these two series & get on a run from there. Our offense is capable of carrying us but who knows how many runs we are gonna be expected to score to win a darn game nowadays. Thanks guys!

Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Braves gained that game back that they lost yesterday, back to 4.5 behind NYM...

7 scoreless for Huddy. Bullpen didn't blow this one for him, but they tried... Dotel got tagged. No homers for Tex, the bum.

Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Nice to get that game back. Hopefully we can move to within 3.5 games after tomorrow.

Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Escobar is pretty slick at SS... not to mention that rocket arm.

Braves threatening, down 1-0 in the 4th.

...and the aforementioned Escobar gets the tying run in.

Tie didn't last long, Spillborghs with his second solo homer...

Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Chipper's swinging the bat well today, even with the sore hand.

2-run shot, Braves take their first lead of the game.

EDIT: And big Tex just missed hitting another one out. Off the wall for a double.


Re-EDIT: Looks like Chuck's gonna give it right back again.

Yep, tie game. And still runners on the corners with nobody out.

Yates getting the call here... could get ugly.

Ugh.

...okay, turned out better than I expected. Only down a run.

Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Corky Miller ties it up with a RBI double... his first major league RBI in over 5 years.

He's had a nice day behind the plate, too. Made a couple good plays.


Ha, bloop double and the Braves take the lead.


EDIT: Crap, quit hanging sliders Dotel.

Gah, tied again.
