Default The Official Unofficial "Braves Gametime Chat Thread"

Been a long time coming on this one, Braves fans. I've noticed there are about a dozen of us who like to post every 10 minutes during a game, so let's keep it all together now.

Carry on.

Bring it on ... here's to another 12 bombs for Upton in the month of May!

Still can't believe there were only 5 hits last night. If I had to guess I'd say that's at least a tie for the fewest hits in any game this season.

Haren has only thrown 57 pitches through 6 innings...


9.5 pitches per inning.

So sick of BJ Upton. 36 k's in 28 games is ridiculous.

You had to know that's what you were going to get.

On a side note, what's the consensus on Gattis/McCann situation? Will Gattis get demoted once Hayward is back? Will someone else and he still see at bats at C, OF, and 1B?

Woo, always good to see Kimbrel do his job. Too bad I was busy organizing cards and not in view of my TV when Simmons and Schaeffer hit those HRs.

Win is a win is a win, no matter how many times B.J. Upton strikes out.

Honestly, I know BJ is a second half player but if he keeps doing this badly I wouldn't be surprised (and I've heard this around the water cooler) Heyward in CF, Justin in RF and Gattis in LF.

Otherwise when Heyward gets back look for Gattis to catch probably once every 5 games (maybe for Teheran) and then back up Freddie and the OF.

And to defend BJ, Uggla is doing just as bad. Before todays game Uggla actually had more K's.


Before tonight we were 3rd in the league in K's. I except it to stay about like that but if we can play this well without even having our full lineup out there I like our chances when/if we get fully healthy.

Remember all this has been done with limited playing time from Freddie & Jason. Juan is now hurt and we haven't had McCann, Beachy or Venters.

Wren paid $75 million for B.J. Upton so he is going to play him just about every day regardless how bad he is hitting. He has done the same thing with Uggla.

Brian McCann is back! First hit of the year is a two run single with bases loaded!
