Braves @ Reds, 5/30

by @ 6:30 pm.   Filed under braves
W: Kent Mercker (1-0) L: Royce Ring (1-1)


The Braves are wearing their all blue hats with their standard away jerseys tonight. The all blue hats are normally reserved for the new blue alts. They wore the hat last night too and shellacked the Brewers to salvage the last game of the series. Anything to win on the road.

In bad news, they Braves put Kotsay on the 15-day DL with back problems. They called Josh Anderson up from Richmond. Kotsay has been playing so well this year, we can only hope he gets back on the field soon.

A’s @ Braves, 5/18

The game is on right now, going into the bottom of the 5th. Braves lead 3-1. Reyes is on the mound and I have to say he looks pretty good. Only allowed a run, a one-out homer to Bobby “Bing” Crosby in the first, on 6 hits and this point and he has stuck out 6.

I am glad the Braves are on their longest home stand of the season. They need to string together some wins and (crap, Brown just scored, 3-2) get into the lead in the division while New York is struggling. Everyone knows the Marlins will not sustain their hot start so we need to (and now they have taken Reyes out of the game) put some distance on the field.

Back to watching the game.

Back again!

Sure, it’s been seven months since anyone posted on this site but look for it to get much busier around here. Chase recruited me and maybe a couple of other folks to contribute content to the site.

There isn’t much to say about me except that I am a 23 year old Braves fan. I don’t really have a favorite player anymore, what with free agency and ever changing rosters. My favorite Braves moment has to be The Slide. Yeah, I know, real original.

Today’s game against the Pirates was rained out. They are making it up with a doubleheader tomorrow. The first game will be played at 12:35 and the second at 4:05 PM making this a very rare true doubleheader.

There is talk that the Braves may promote pitching prospect Charlie Morton to the big league club to make a spot start this week because of the mash-up caused by today’s postponement. If he isn’t called up jack-of-all-trades Jeff Bennett will most likely make a start.
