Scarred, but smarter.

Jays 1, Braves 0

ESPN – Braves vs. Blue Jays – Box Score – June 29, 2008 First off, Francoeur sucks. I just wanted to mention that. Secondly, Joseph Reyes was terrific, made essentially one mistake, and wound up losing the game because of the punchless, Francoeur-laden, offense. Reyes gave up a double with a runner on first in […]

Jays 9, Braves 5

ESPN – Braves vs. Blue Jays – Box Score – June 28, 2008 On paper, decent offense and bad pitching. It wasn’t quite that, though I guess at the end it turned out that way. But through seven innings, the Braves had scored just one run. Through five, Tim Hudson had given up two. But […]

Braves 4, Jays 0

ESPN – Braves vs. Blue Jays – Box Score – June 27, 2008 Easy. It’s important to note, as DOB did in his blog entry today, that the Braves are getting excellent pitching, especially starting pitching. You can’t even say that they’re not working deep into games. Jair Jurrjens pitched eighth innings, and was never […]

Braves 4, Brewers 2

ESPN – Brewers vs. Braves – Box Score – June 25, 2008 Jorge Campillo figured out the secret — the lineup isn’t going to win the game for you, you’re going to have to do it yourself. He went 2-3 with two runs scored, plus pitched seven innings of two-run baseball despite the usual defense. […]

Brewers 4, Braves 3

ESPN – Brewers vs. Braves – Box Score – June 24, 2008 Charlie Morton, welcome to the “I Hate The Lineup” Club! Tim Hudson, President, Joseph Reyes, Treasurer. Morton, christened “Poor Charlie” in the game thread, suffered through six innings of play that would be an insult to the concept of “Bush League”, winding up […]

Brewers 4, Braves 1

ESPN – Brewers vs. Braves – Box Score – June 23, 2008 Terrible. Braves-killer Ben Sheets did his thing, and even though the game was theoretically in doubt the whole way, you never got the feeling that the Braves were in it. Of course, Francoeur, who sucks, was back in the starting lineup, and though […]

Braves 8, Mariners 3 (not that close)

ESPN – Mariners vs. Braves – Box Score – June 22, 2008 So, that’s what we’re paying (well, Liberty Media is paying) Mark Teixeira for. Teixeira was 3-4 with all three hits home runs, one of them actually righthanded, driving in four runs. Tim Hudson was great (I guess not all of the American League […]

Braves 5, Mariners 4

ESPN – Mariners vs. Braves – Box Score – June 21, 2008 I am not changing my mind about this team, but a win’s a win. Chipper and Escobar were out of the starting lineup, taking away not only two of the team’s best hitters, but its two best defensive players. It showed in the […]

Mariners 10, Braves 2

ESPN – Mariners vs. Braves – Box Score – June 20, 2008 Worst day ever? Got to be close. Blown out, and both Chipper and Escobar left the game with what are supposed to be minor injuries. It started well enough, with Jorge Campillo keeping the Mariners off the board (albeit with a lot of […]

19 Jun

Rangers 5, Braves 4

ESPN – Braves vs. Rangers – Box Score – June 19, 2008 I really do hate this team. Once again, the Braves went out to an early 2-0 lead only to blow it. The Hamster ground into a double play with runners first and third and nobody out in the third, because that’s what he […]
