NLDS Live Game Thread: Dodgers at Braves – Game 2

 

The good news today is that the Game 1 jitters are long gone and last night wasn’t a single-elimination play-in game.  So today’s another day, and there’s a chance for redemption.  Tonight it’s Mike Minor vs. Zack Greinke in NLDS Game 2, the last game before the teams take Saturday off en route to Los Angeles.

 

Just scroll down to the comments section, and join us as we talk baseball, and the Atlanta Braves!!

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    First mistake… not pitching to Jose.
    Second mistake… not pitching to Reed.
    Third mistake…. choosing Heyward.

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      Mattingly let Fredi out-manage him there.

    During the regular season, Freddie Freeman hit .700 (7-for-10) with 17 RBI with the bases loaded. Just sayin… #Braves

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      Apparently it was 7 for 12…. oh well, now 7 for 13.

  • http://www.tomahawktake.com/ Chris Headrick

    I dunno Alan. Saw your tweet. Assumes people know who magic is in relation to the Dodgers. maybe… Dodger co-owner Magic Johnson is just another Johnson. Twitter social strategy brought to you by Chipper Jones

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      I think it’ll work – heck, they keep showing the guy.

  • http://www.tomahawktake.com/ Chris Headrick

    Wonder if Jeff is getting to watch any of the game, or simply saddled with girly stuff in the face of his pending doom.

          Right – I knew why… merely suggesting that the locale would likely preclude TBS.

            Well I’ll amend… AtBat audio

          • http://www.tomahawktake.com/ Chris Headrick

            I told Jeff though… you’ve waited this long, you cannot wait until November when you know baseball is in October? It sets a bad precedent. Love is fleeting, but baseball is forever!

    Wilson was playing around pre-game in the outfield last night, shaggin flies and such, and acting like a goofy kid, and he slid and dug up a HUGE divot it took the grounds crew 15 minutes to repair. And I didn’t think I could dislike him more!

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      He makes it easy.

    • Glen Morrow

      I know Chris just explaining that to my wife , and she said should have made him fix it ..

      • http://www.tomahawktake.com/ Chris Headrick

        He has a non-divot repair clause in his over-ripe contract

            It’s dyed. Its a beard yes, but it’s riddled with metrosexual overtones, deeming it less than scary
