I'm watching the gamecast at work. I've got it recording on the dvr for later.

From the looks of it Hudson is pitching great.

They said he's got his full arsenal of pitches this year because he's finally 100%. He definitely looks that way. I've been impressed.

Heyward's strikeouts are a little disconcerting. Hopefully, he breaks out of it soon.

Everytime he gets down in the count, and they bait him with a low breaking ball and he swings over it every time as it hits the dirt.

He needs to be more patient. And they need to stop playing his first HR highlight every single commercial break.

Well the feed from Time Warner cut out at the top of the 7th, so thanks a lot. I'm sitting here staring at a black screen. Ugh...

Too many men stranded today, imo. Great pitching today by both bullpens, but that was tough to watch that long of a game and lose.

Oh well, hopefully we can get em tomorrow night, because it's gonna be tough vs. Lincecum

Prado

Escobar

Chipper

McCann

Glaus

Heyward

I have been searching the internet for years trying to find a decent Atlanta Braves message board. Ideally one that is like the huddle but for the Braves baseball. I have found nothing but garbage sites, most of the time hosted by some big media outlet (ESPN, CBS, etc.). They all suck donkey balls and I am disappointed in my lack of quality braves discussion.

It seems as though there are not too many people interested in baseball here and even fewer braves fans (Growing up I thought everyone from the southeast was a braves fan, but apparently not). Anyways, since so few people post here, I figured it would be best to just have one thread to discuss anything/everything braves related.

I have feeling this might become me just having a conversation with myself, but I figured it was worth a shot.

There are decent Braves messages boards without many trolls out there. I could send you a link to the ones I frequent if you want me to.

Prado is on fire to start the season. That guy is Mr. Consistent. Good to see Heyward bounce back with a good game. Lowe was able to get away with a lot of walks tonight.

Good game? That's an understatement. He was 3/3 and walked the 4th time. Talk about a rebound from 0 for 5 from the day before.

Lowe never got in a rhythm and I have no idea how he held them to 1 run. But yeah, Prado is crazy awesome right now. The best part is, not only is he like the best batter in the NL right now, but he's been really good defensively at 3B in Chipper's absence.
