Reds Versus Braves: Live Open Thread


Let’s Talk Baseball!

At Tomahawk Take, we love to write about baseball (specifically about the Atlanta Braves), but we also absolutely love to talk about  baseball, and if you know us, you know we talk a LOT! You might even say we talk more than we write, if that’s possible.

The reason we do our Live Open Threads for Atlanta Braves’ games is because we like to chat about our beloved team, and we love it when like-minded fans join us to chat.  Typing isn’t the same as talking of course, but it’ll do in a pinch.  Of course you can get all the chat you want on Twitter (we love that too), but you then have to wade through all the Twitter-Chatter (Did I just coin that phrase?) that’s not Braves’ related.  That’s no fun!

With our Live Open Threads, you can join us at game time, share your thoughts, opinions, worries, rants and raves, and pretty much any other thought (keep it clean) that might enter your Tomahawk Choppin’, intelligent brain!

 

Game One Details

The Cincinnati Reds roll into Atlanta to take on the Atlanta Braves at Turner field tonight, in game one of a three-game set.  Our own Brandon Woodworth shared his series preview with us just a touch earlier today, so take a look at that first, and then join us for our Live Open Thread below.

Game Time: 7:35 PM EST

Channel: Fox SportSouth

 Probables:  Homer Bailey (1-1, 5.75 ERA) vs Ervin Santana (2-0, 0.86 ERA)

    Sniper should have gotten mesaroco before he rounded third

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

      mesaroco may wish he had.

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

    Hammy it did appear

  • fireboss

    They already have Pena in the game, better for us

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

    This AB worries me

  • fireboss

    Someone tell Avilan to forget that lazy curve

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

      Luis is just off his game lately… severely off, and with pending moves in the Braves pitching core, this perhaps oughta concern him!

      • fireboss

        Fredi won;t do anything with him until too late

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

          No, he won’t, but perhaps he should if Avilan doesn’t stop screwing the pooch in relief.

    • Glen Morrow

      Avlian Just not been impressive so far this year

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

        That big curve implies he has some soreness somewhere. Like he’s trying to throw a good curve, but just cannot. It’s weird.

        • fireboss

          Shoulder

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

    Braves pen has frustrated the hell outta me lately. I mean for our rotation to be this good should be a bit of inspiration for our relievers. They seem like a different club at times. Mental! Mental!

  • fireboss

    Carpenter got Phillips to Screw That Up #sorrynotsorry

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

    They’re showing food again on TV commercials. My tapeworm is jealous!

    • fireboss

      Just had popcorn .. yumm

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

    Ever see a guy swat a catch like Phillips did, miss, and literally swat it away? LOL. Time or two, and it’s embarassingly funny.

    • fireboss

      You mean like Dan swatting flies the other night

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

        Dan swatting anything but a ball is par for his current back 9.

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

    Glen bring me some food!

    • Glen Morrow

      Feeding Chris a Juicy 8 ounce steak with Baked Potato… Sorry ( No Salad) .

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

        Better make two if it’s just 8 ounces. :) I need a 16 oz. Ribeye!

  • fireboss

    Alan doesn’t love my puns :(

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

      Yes, my comedy is lost on him as well.

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

        Fred, I thought it was a highly developed pun, that was obvious, but not overly so. Well done.

        • fireboss

          Thank yewwwwwwwwww

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

    Chip just effectually jinxed B.J.

    • fireboss

      Not that hard

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

        What, for chip to jinx someone, or… Oh, now I get it… and I got your pun faster ;-)

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

    Nice reframe, that probably wasn’t needed there.

    • fireboss

      yes but Santana wasn’t getting that call earlier

  • fireboss

    Now we leave schafer is and put the pitcher in BJs slot

  • fireboss

    I got another telemarketer call two days ago, home security. I pressed one and said :”So you want to sell a security system to the FBI field office?”

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

      Argh :)

  • Glen Morrow

    wife is getting nervous , she has broke out the doritos.

    • fireboss

      Ooo what dip?

      • Glen Morrow

        Spicy Doritos she is doing that bareback no dip

        • fireboss

          gotta love America too lazy to actually dip anymore just bake it into the chips

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

      If this talk of food in my current state of delirium doesn’t stop, I will have to eat this Live thread!

      • fireboss

        I’m down to soda crackers here

  • Glen Morrow

    Chip Got a rip in at the Reds Ballpark .

  • fireboss

    #Reds relief corps tried to Marshall a defense but failed #Braves

  • fireboss

    Joe has a point, I’ve seen a lot of spectating when we should have been running of late

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

    Sorry have some sheep and I had to tend to them.

  • fireboss

    Damn Dan you shoulda hit that

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

    It’s 9 pm, and I have to get up early, but a run to the Waffle House is in my future.

    • Glen Morrow

      Chucked, smothered and covered

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

    • fireboss

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

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

    We need Kimbrel to be like Shae ;) hehe

  • fireboss

    I think my last pun caused Alan to have a stroke. he hasn;t commented

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

      Perhaps he’s setting there figuring out how he might construct puns with such ease?

  • Glen Morrow

    Ok my wife gort excited when Craig bent over , she don’t get that excited when i bend over .. I guess 15 yrs of marriage does that …lol

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

        Fred just had a minor stroke

  • fireboss

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

      No but she can hit a curve

      • fireboss

        • Glen Morrow

          trade placed but Uggla in stands

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

            Maybe that would give Dan a new appreciation for what he’s getting paid. Ya know I shouldn’t say that. Dan hustles more than anyone.. he’s just lost a step.

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