    Please explain to me why Lowe was still in the game to give up 4 runs. We can’t score 4 runs. He should’ve gotten the hook after 2 at the most.

  2. I’ll explain it: Fredi is an idiot.

  3. WillieMontanez says:

    It looks like it is all on Huddy tomorrow and Beachy on Thursday in Stl.

  4. rankin' rob says:

    If we somehow make the playoffs, he’ll keep trotting him out there. Any bets on that?

  5. WillieMontanez says:

    Rob – If we win the WC, I am certain that they will trot out Lowe in Game # 2 on Sunday

  6. atlpaddy says:

    This team ain’t nothing but a bunch of Jesus Freaks (M.Diaz) and candy-asses!!!

  7. Didn’t watch..couldn’t do it to myself.

  8. Jeff H. says:

    Jesus Christ on a Crostini, I’ve seen tire fires that are prettier than the Braves’ September performance.

  9. roadrunner says:

    RR: I think you’re right. But I don’t think it’s going to be an issue.

  10. wuky says:

    I couldn’t believe it when Lowe was batting for himself in the 4th. Fredi should be fired just for letting Lowe start, let alone going 4+ innings in a critical game. What a pathetic joke this team has become. Where’s the fire from the team? Where’s the heart?

  11. Rob says:

    St. Louis gets down 5-0 and it takes them one inning to score 5 and tie it up. St. Louis gets down 6-5 and it takes them a couple of innings to throw 4 more on the board. The Braves couldn’t score 9 runs against an instructional league long reliever.

  12. atlpaddy says:

    More than likely, it will all be over tomorrow. Gah!

  13. PepeFreeUs says:

    If this continues to go south, it will be only the second time that something like it has happened to me (i.e., having a lead and a good shot at October, only to be caught late.)

    Only in ’83 did anything at all similar happen.

  14. Rob says:

    If there’s anything the hold onto, it’s that Huddy is on the mound. My guess is that he leaves after 7 down 1-0.

  15. Pat, the James Coburn quote from “Afflicted” made my night. If only he owned the Braves.

  16. “Affliction” that is.

  17. PepeFreeUs says:

    The line to pull Fredi’s tooth with rusty pliers starts behind me.

  18. roadrunner says:

    He would probably stare at the line with that numb look on his face, Maybe he’d ask you to bunt.

  19. Tokyokie says:

    Gonzalez shouldn’t be fired, he should be committed to a mental institution. For if insanity is repeating the same action expecting a different result and not getting one, what is continuing to pitch Derek Lowe?

  20. the real big cat says:

    Fredi Gonzalez is the Burrhead Jones of baseball. Greasy egg-suckin’ jabronie.

  21. Caz says:

    Ha! Jabronie…..cool word.

    What a miserable performance this past two weeks from the team. It just appears that they have no gumption at all…no fire…no nothin’.

  22. charlesad says:

    I think that, if anything, they’re trying too hard, pressing at the plate especially. I don’t know if that’s Fredi’s fault. The players are highly paid professionals so ultimately it’s up to them to perform, or not. Much of the offensive woes of late start with McCann and Prado. They’ve disappeared in the second half. And I’m pretty sure those two guys have plenty of desire. For whatever reason, it’s just not working for them. I don’t mention Heyward. His problems have obviously been season-long and so have not been a big factor in the recent unpleasantness. Again, I hardly think Heyward has not been trying all season or doesn’t care.

    My best summation is it’s a nasty stew of: pitching injuries, which contributed to bullpen overuse; critical bullpen failures either because of overuse or just plain bad timing for rare mistakes; season-long offensive struggles which got even worse with McCann’s injury and subsequent slump and Prado’s extended slump; pressing by guys like Uggla recently as the offensive torpor deepened and the WC lead dwindled; less than optimal managing and probably a poor hitting coach. That’s just my opinion.

  23. the real big cat says:

    Instead of “Spahn and Sain and pray for rain,” we got “That rummy Lowe and out we go.”

  24. Greenville Braves says:

    Terry Pendleton 2012.

  25. wuky says:

    I don’t know if TP is the answer, at least as hitting coach (he may yet be a better manager). He clearly did a better job than Parrish has done, but the Office and every other Braves outlet lamented TP as hitting coach on many occasions, and i think most of us were happy to see him demoted.

  26. Anyone knows Ralph from Benhill email address

  27. White Boy says:

    Ralph “from Ben Hill” was an racist idiot when he was in Atlanta. I’m assuming he’s not around (dirt nap, hospital, etc.) anymore. Hahahahahah!!!!!

  28. Steve Smith says:

    Ralph from Ben hill is alive and well in Riverdale
