Live Game Threads

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 Kris Medlen continue to improve, making a strong case for being in the top 3 come the NLDS, and you wanna say, “Why did I ever doubt the scrappy Medlen!” … you can do it, baby!  If you see Evan Gattis back in the outfield, and still struggling even after good at-bats in Gwinnett, and you want to say…. “Don’t get too upset.  He’s just a rookie!”…. you can do it!  Heck, even if you happen to be a Mets fan, you can rant among all the raves!  We don’t discriminate.  Heck!  We even love and accept the SABR guys! ;-)

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.

    Join us again tonight for game 2 of the Mets / Braves series. Let’s talk baseball!

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Lineup tonight: B.J. Upton CF; J. Upton RF; Freeman 1B; McCann C; C. Johnson 3B; Gattis LF; Uggla 2B; Simmons SS; Medlen P

  • cheadrick

    Braves LIve! on now. Someone wake me up when it’s over.

  • cheadrick

    B.J. has struggled at the leadoff spot, with a .200 BA, but he’s .333 going 1 for 3 against Torres. Let’s hope that trend, and his recent hitting continues.

  • cheadrick

    Well I suppose the live thread tonight is more dead than live. I’m on vacation, so I might just put this laptop down and grab a beer instead.

  • Matthew Jones

    I’m finally here. The boys went to sleep early tonight. Of course, they were up at 5 this morning and took one nap. :

    • cheadrick

      Twins you said. Wow, you got stamina! Mine are separated by some years.

      • Matthew Jones

        Even crazier is that we’re pregnant with another set, a boy and a girl. She’s going to be a terror to boys here in 13 years. :D

        • cheadrick

          You had twins, and your wife is going to have twins again? Really?

          • Matthew Jones

            No lie! 4 kids, two pregnancies, all 2 and under. We have declared war on sleep in this house. :D

          • cheadrick

            haha. I don’t what’s more impressive.. your stamina now, or your stamina then ;) haha. Sheesh man, there goes your life savings.

          • Matthew Jones

            Yeah. I fully expect them to take care of me when I’m old. They owe me, right?! :D

          • cheadrick

            That’s my philosophy also. I work hard every day for mine, so I got some payback coming. Got one out of the house already and in college. Just gotta keep working for the rest of them.

          • Matthew Jones

            You make sure they’re majoring in something that’ll make a lot of money, right? :D

          • cheadrick

            haha well, I tease em about it, but I don’t care what they do as long as it makes them happy. That’s half the battle, working doing something that ain’t really work. Few do that. I want to make sure they don’t just work and have no play.

          • Matthew Jones

            Yeah, we could have a whole conversation about how Americans are killing themselves working. But that’s for another day…

          • cheadrick

            Well we work harder, but make less in this economy. Hard to stay ahead. Yep, for another day :)

  • cheadrick

    Light on staff tonight.

  • Matthew Jones

    Nice hit by BJ. I swear, he’s starting to get going right now. If he gets hot, I’ll take it.

    • cheadrick

      Yeah I think he’s made some adjustments to his swing, but he still needs to work on his attitude a touch. That lazy outfield “I don’t wanna get hurt on the wall” play was just flat without excuse last night.

      • Matthew Jones

        Missed it, frankly. He sort of had something like that yesterday. It was over his head, but he waiting for it to bounce off the wall (right in front of us). It died right at the wall, and he had to run to it.

        • cheadrick

          Yeah that’s the play Im referring to. It looked like he should have caught it to me, but was worried about hitting the wall. Appeared he gave up on it for fear of the wall. It looked catchable.

          • Matthew Jones

            It’s so hard to tell when you in the stands right there, at least to me. Might have been easier to see on TV.

  • cheadrick

    Meds nibbling corners well tonight

  • Matthew Jones

    So, is it me or are Joe and Skip drunk already?

    • cheadrick

      I do well to tolerate either of them. Color guy with no color, and an analyst who don’t know &&^% from Shinola. :)

      • Matthew Jones

        Plus, Joe spent too much time with Boog, so he pulls for other teams too much. I don’t mind calling out about a good play (like the CF catch a bit ago), but dang, there are times where they seem to be pulling for the opposition.

        • cheadrick

          Yeah they both get on man-crush moments where they do that. Its not our imagination either because if you’re like me, you watch alot of other games and thus other announcers.

          • Matthew Jones

            I don’t get to watch as many as I’d like, but yeah. Frankly, I like John Kruk’s commentary a lot on ESPN. I know a lot don’t, but he actually seems to do his homework. Plus, he’s a closet Braves fan. :D I’d love to see a game with Smoltz, Kruk, and Don Sutton on a broadcast. That’d be fun.

          • cheadrick

            Well Kruks gets crap cuz he works for ESPN, and other reasons, but he knows baseball.

          • fireboss

            I like Krukie but he’s surrounded by Idiots Even Ravich is going bad

  • fireboss

    Evening all finally here I did see BJ get a hit and Gattis 2 oh and Dan look pathetic striking out though. My son was here and we were chatting.. and dan dribbles to ss as I type it Free EJ

    • cheadrick

      hehe yeah FREEEJ FREEEJ FREEEJ… I need to be at the game with a sign

      • fireboss

        #FreeEJ on theTwitta as @datdudebp would say and I’m getting retweets

        • cheadrick

          I actually try to avoid his tweets lol

  • cheadrick

    Kris increasingly saying, I’m pitching in the NLDS even if it’s a sweep. LOL

  • Matthew Jones

    Hey y’all, I’ll be back in a bit. Got some work to finish up for two classes I’m taking for my Master’s. :P

    • fireboss

      YOu scholars gotta do all that thar stuff :)

      • Matthew Jones

        Yeah, unfortunately. :D Nice DP there, though!

    • cheadrick

      Sounds like fun. Will say a prayer for you. *gulp* Horrible memories of my masters

  • cheadrick

    Rarely root for the Phillies, but must do so tonight. Nats got em 3-2 top 5. Could get M# down to 9.

  • cheadrick

    hung up a touch. Mistake

  • cheadrick

    I’m out for the night. Almost every night it’s been the Chris and Fred show! Might be back in a bit, but Im on vacation.

    • fireboss

      I’m engaged with Lee in a debate on Uggla and I think I’m winning or at least close to a draw

      • Guest

        Not hard to win a debate with a SABR guy

  • fireboss
