Marlins Braves Series: Live Thread (Game 1)


Our goal is to have a live thread for as many, if not all games as we possibly can.  We realize all fans lead busy lives, and we do as well, but we also know that when you’re at home, watching the game in the comfort of your man (or lady) cave, sometimes you’re watching it all by your lonesome.  It’s good to have other like-minded fans to be able to discuss the game with, but sometimes other people just don’t get how important these games are!  Our live threads give you the chance to talk baseball, comment, rant, and rave about all things Braves!

Come on then, what are you waiting for?  All you have to do is grab your laptop, iPad, Tab, Note, or whatever else you use to satisfy your cravings for sports, and keep it nearby while watching the game.  When you see Julio Teheran deliver a slider down and away that baffles a hitter, and you wanna say, “Wow!” … you can do it, baby!  If you see Chris Johnson slap a single to the opposite field against the shift, and you wanna say, “Did you see that, dude!”…. you can do it!  Heck, even if you happen to be a Marlins fan, you can rant among all the raves!  We don’t discriminate.

To get started with your comments, just scroll down until you see the Comments section.  If you have a Disqus account for commenting, feel free to log in and use it to comment, but you don’t have to.  Anyone can comment with the Disqus system.  Stay tuned throughout the game and refresh the page often to see new comments.  Let’s have some fun talking about our Atlanta Braves!

If you have any trouble with commenting, have a question, or need help, feel free to shoot us a DM on Twitter.

    In the awe inspiring light of Fernandez, let’s not overlook the outing Julio had tonight.

    • fireboss

      Julio did good but Fernandez highlights a lot of what’s missing today. Some folks forget to have fun while they do this. All this anger and mean and trash talking makes it harder to have fun watching

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Downs pretty nimble getting to first

    • fireboss

      he was a good pickup

      • cheadrick

        Good we could make at least one… wait, 2… EJ

        • fireboss

          When I start to think things like that I remember the unexplained DFA of Diory Hernandez and signing of Julio Lugo

          • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

            Yeah – some dice rolls work. Others….

          • fireboss

            Still think Lugo had naked pictures of GM he was literally personna non gratta everywhere an dyet there he was in Atlanta for some stupid reason

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Darvish no-no through 6…. oh, you have.

    • cheadrick

      Oh Yu! (another bad pun)

    • fireboss

      Yu just like to tease us don;t Yu

  • cheadrick

    Heck, even if we didn’t get any visitors this go-round, I’ve had fun with you guys. Felt like I was watching the game with you. We should do a field trip sometime in the future, and actually get together at a Braves game.

  • fireboss

    Not a Luis Ayala fan in any way.. scares me to death would have liked to have added axford arms starting to look tired particularly Avilan and Carp

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      Thanks, it’s been a long week…. oh wait…

      Actually, I’m quite okay with St. Louis getting Axford. It’s a coin toss for them on that one.

      • fireboss

        They won’t use him to close just like we use Carp he’ll be better there than in Milwaukee

        • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

          Well… he had already lost that job in Milwaukee (I made a lot of saves in fantasy bb land by picking up Henderson early) – still hasn’t been pitching well at all lately.

          • fireboss

            True but different situations better pitching coach. Stuff was still good

    • cheadrick

      Yeah some of the relief is starting to be worrying

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Offense has been doing Just Enough lately. And no more. Still 2-1, and we’re stretching.

    • fireboss

      Missing spark Jason provided and the balance the lineup had without BJ AND Dan

  • cheadrick

    Still hungry. Going to eat a touch more leftovers. BiaB

    • fireboss

      Popcorn and a beer here please

  • fireboss

    Well Dan, Dan got a hit .. that was catchable .. saved by the lights

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Opted for the safe way – Dan probably shoulda been out. We’ll take it: Pefect Bunt single by BJ!

  • fireboss

    BJ with a perfect bunt. Found something he can do!

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    No hitter over in Arlington.

    • fireboss

      Shh don;t jinx him yu jinxer yu

      • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

        Too late!

        • fireboss

          Go lock yourself in a closet

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Love the foam bear paws!

    • fireboss

      Gotta have one of those.

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      Dang – intentional walk. Loads up the bases.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Lefty Jennings coming in to face Schafer: bases jacked, 1 out, bottom 7. 2-1 lead… chance to break their will.

    • fireboss

      There was a time Schafer would have bunted between the pitcher and first but he won;t tonight. EJ not JUP behind him

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Elliot. This could be gloat-worthy.

    • fireboss

      Not as good right handed as left

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      Or not. Did he ever see a strike?

      • fireboss

        No, swung at thee bad pitches

  • fireboss

    No faith in this guy at all period

  • cheadrick

    Dammit Mike

  • fireboss

    So for all those folks who don;t like Schafer’s defense .. suck on that

  • cheadrick

    If Schafer plays every day, he’s better than BJ imo.

    • fireboss

      Bj always seems not to know where he is

      • cheadrick

        I hope BJ turns it around, but his contract is shaping up to be one of the lowest returns on investment in Braves history lol

        • fireboss

          so far it is

  • cheadrick

    LOL I will never forget that as long as I live. Oh the humanity. CQ

    • fireboss

      another reason to act like you’ve been there particularly when you’re old enough to have fathered a couple of your teammates

  • fireboss

    Varvaro staying in.. where’s my Xannax

    • cheadrick

      Yeah even a half inning of Varvaro could be game changing at times.

  • cheadrick

    Good pitch

  • cheadrick

    Another good pitch.. in just enough for him not to straighten it out

  • cheadrick

    Sigh, check my pants

  • fireboss

    Exhaled heavily and searching for clean undies

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    One swing won it. But it was still a win.

    • fireboss

      It does help we play in a AAA division

  • cheadrick

    Well, that concludes our first live thread I suspect TT has had in awhile. 160+ comments, all by staff, but we’ll keep plugging away. It’ll kick in eventually. Enjoyed it everyone. Analysis in my dreams.

    • Matthew Jones

      Like I said above, I just plain missed it. Folks will come once they realize gameday threads are happening. Got to be better than having three hours of cursing and metrics.

  • fireboss

    Night all

  • cheadrick

    Night

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Miss Braves win: tied with JAX for first w/3 games to go.

  • Matthew Jones

    Dang, I missed the game thread! I’ve got to check tomorrow to see if we’re doing this again. :D

    • cheadrick

      Matthew, yes I plan to do another one this evening. Sorry you missed it, but love to have you tonight. Never know how many staffers will be able to hang out, but we’re going to try to Live Thread as many games as possible.
