  1. Fuck no, it is NOT. Leave it, Uni-watch be damned.

    I really would’ve settled for a basehit for the tie.

    LWJ, Jr is still, to paraphrase the guy from “Miller’s Crossing”, an artist with the Adirondack.

  2. Absolutely unbelievable. I was going to say – great job by the pen, including two 1-2-3 frames by Miguel Batista. Also worth mentioning is the tremendous at bat by Bourn in the ninth.

    If this team is able to hold on and see the postseason, we’re going to look back on this game as the turning point.

    What does it also say about Uggla that Fredi pinch-hit him and immediately removed him once Papelbon entered the game?

  3. Easily my favorite Braves moment in a long,long time. Keep the Chief! I liked it when Chipper said after the game that they pay him a lot of money to hit home runs and get RBIs. By the standards of the modern athlete it was about as humble as it gets.

  4. This one goes alongside the one to cap off the 15 run affair that he hit earlier this year, the Gant homer to beat the Reds in ’93 (when Ronnie said that everyone who left shouldn’t be allowed back into the stadium that year…I thought of that when Chipper mentioned people leaving in his postgame interview) and the Jordan slam off of Franco in ’01 for sheer, unadulterated joy.

  5. Yes, Bourn had a great at-bat in the 9th. He has had too few of those in recent weeks. I suspect he is pressing. Having Scott Boras for an agent must be like having an extra spouse.

  6. Thinking back, that Gant bomb was special, and Justice hit one to beat the Reds that year as well, didn’t he? Prior to last night, my all time favorite might have been a Bob Watson walk-off to beat the Dodgers many moons ago. I don’t know why that one stuck in my memory like it has, maybe because it was the first game winner I remember seeing, or maybe because I hated the Dodgers worse than Iran back then.

  7. The Justice one was in Cincy so it wasn’t a walkoff. Gave us the lead, which we had to hold.

    That Bob Watson game from ’83 was just unspeakably classic.
