Chipper Jones

Some people seem to have decided that Chipper is a problem. This is dumb; he’s one of the best players on the team. He’s not what he once was, but here you’ve got a third baseman putting up a .275/.344/.470 line. The team would not be better off if he retired. Yeah, you think they […]

Phillies 4, Braves 3 (13 innings)

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves – Box Score – September 28, 2011 – ESPN. And so it ends. Somehow, you knew Scott Linebrink would be involved. He would have to be. The season in microcosm: The Braves got an early lead, held it to the very end, but lost it. The two teams traded runs […]

Phillies 7, Braves 1

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves – Box Score – September 27, 2011 – ESPN. I hope the Cardinals vote Derek Lowe a playoff share. He’s the MVP of their stretch run, for sure. Lowe failed to make it out of the fifth inning as the Braves have now completely blown a seemingly insurmountable lead in […]

Phillies 4, Braves 2

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves – Box Score – September 26, 2011 – ESPN. Once again, a young starting pitcher did enough to keep the team in the game, only to see the offense completely shut down. I’m getting tired of this. The Braves took an early lead when Chipper Jones hit a solo homer […]

Nats 3, Braves 0

Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals – Box Score – September 25, 2011 – ESPN. You guys need a sense of history here. This is a collapse for the ages. The Braves got four-hit today, yet still should have scored some runs. In the third inning, they loaded the bases with a hit and two walks, […]

Nats 4, Braves 1

Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals – Box Score – September 24, 2011 – ESPN. If you don’t score, you won’t win. It’s pretty simple, really. The Nats scored a run in the second after Brandon Beachy walked two and then allowed a single. They got three in the fourth in an inning in which he […]

Braves 7, Nats 4

Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals – Box Score – September 23, 2011 – ESPN. Get out to a big lead and then try to hang on. It’s not like it’s symbolic of the season or anything. The Braves jumped up 3-0 in the first, sending eight men to the plate. Dan Uggla singled in Michael […]

Marlins 4, Braves 0

Atlanta Braves vs. Florida Marlins – Box Score – September 21, 2011 – ESPN. Maybe I should have gone with “Low” for the game thread. Or “Everybody Hurts”. Not that Derek Lowe was singularly to blame for the latest in this series of debacles. He didn’t pitch well, mind you, but he allowed three runs […]

Braves 4, Marlins 0

Atlanta Braves vs. Florida Marlins – Box Score – September 20, 2011 – ESPN. So I had only two arrows left in my luck-changing quiver. Not wanting to deploy Collins yet, I went with not watching the game and just following online while watching something else. (Not watching anything would be ridiculous.) And it worked. […]

Marlins 6, Braves 5

Atlanta Braves vs. Florida Marlins – Box Score – September 19, 2011 – ESPN. I just don’t understand it. It doesn’t make any sense. Having rallied back from 4-1 down to take the lead, with the Marlins down to their last strike, the Braves lost when Chipper Jones lost a chopper in the lights and […]
