What Miserable Braves Playoff Loss are YOU? BONUS THREAD: Hope.

So, it’s just a bit outside my arbitrarily-defined time frame, but this did happen not quite 18 years ago…     And if you were reading closely, you’d note that my odds of various miserable things occurring didn’t fully add up to 100%…     The oddsmakers I bought this ticket from at the Wynn […]

What Miserable Braves Playoff Loss are YOU? #4: The Ambush, September 23 Game Thread (by W.C.G.)

Ed. note: This is the second in a series of posts by W.C.G. that is predicated on something Mac used to say: “I’ve mentioned before that I have a low opinion of hope, which normally plays you false.” Or, as W.C.G. noted in his introductory post: “Braves fandom has mostly been a series of pleasant, […]

Marlins 5, Braves 2

Atlanta Braves vs. Florida Marlins – Box Score – September 11, 2013 – ESPN Other than one bad-ass swing from the obviously-rejuvenated Evan Gattis, this game wasn’t much fun to watch. Mike Minor was not very sharp, surrendering 11 hits and five runs in six innings, and neither were the bats — at least, not […]

GARETH BALE – how the other half lives, and trades… GAME THREAD

== the lovely Lady of Shallot is she for sale or is she not? well, certainly my friend but then that might depend how many euros have you got?     One hundred and thirty three million, no trades…there hardly ever are any – a club negotiates with another club for one of their […]

GAME THREAD…Craig Kimbrel – who are they/we kidding? A polemic. August 30 Game Thread.

Lysergical acid was dropped as aging relievers are shopped confusing the viewer and certain to skewer his judgment if ever they’ve flopped.     on the more serious matter of extensions and the like… the vagaries of priorities in this area…Heyward/Freeman/Simmons…the youthful and talented whose value has been demonstrated and whose long term tenure here […]

Shea memory…my day in the dugout, not… August 21 Game Thread

another Shea memory, prompted by Ububba’s thread… sometime in the late seventies Davey Johnson, technically, worked for me…he was retired as a player and not yet a ML manager but it was obviously coming…he liked to dabble in Florida real estate – had a motel in town called the Second Sack – had gotten a […]

My Moment with a Miracle Met, August 20 Game Thread (by Ububba)

The summer when I was 10 years old, my mother shipped me off to a sports camp in Fayetteville, N.C. The first week was tennis instruction, second week was basketball and the third week was baseball. I would stay with a friend who lived in Army housing in nearby Ft. Bragg. He and I would […]

Fish 4, Braves 9

ESPN Box Score Streak’s back to one everybody! This game was satisfying in a lot of ways. First off, Freddie Freeman homered for the first time in I think 2 years. And after a remarkably lack-luster performance yesterday, the team seemed to relish destroying the Marlins bullpen in the way the Marlins bullpen is meant […]

Remembering Skip Caray, August 4 Game Thread (by ‘Rissa)

Editor’s note: This should have gone up yesterday, the fifth anniversary of Skip Caray’s death. I apologize for not putting it up sooner. “Like lambs to the slaughter, the Braves take the field.” For many Braves fans in the ’70s and ’80s, Skip Caray helped to make watching the team more bearable in the years […]

Falcons 9 Broncos 8

I love this team! Well, Brandon Beachy is back and let’s just say he threw a lot of strikes. Beachy went three and two-thirds, gave up seven runs on eight hits walking one and striking out five. In reality, he would have been better off putting the ball on a tee and running back to […]
