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.

Yeah, that'd be awesome.

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.

You don't like Nate "Might as well be the pitcher batting" McClouth?

Question for you Braves fans...

Is Mike Gonzalez really this bad?

Didn't think we would be a Giants squad with Lincecum getting the start. We had it for a while but we couldn't get the bats going again.

At least Heyward hit #3.

I want to say 'No, he isn't' but i'm really not sure at this point. I feel like he never made a full recovery from good ol' Tommy Jone. In '07 before he went down he was pitching lights out. After he came back he'd show flashes of his previous dominance, but I felt like he lost any kind of consistency. He also seemed to have more trouble in high pressure situations.

FYI - Back before the surgery he didn't do that rocking back and forth motion. He still started his windup from the same position but he was standing still not rocking. I don't know why he started doing that.

It'd be nice if the Braves take 2 of 3 against San Diego.

Hopefully, the offense helps out Jurrjens tonight by scoring some runs.

So much for that, luls. 17-2.

I thought this team would be a team that scores a lot of runs, but has trouble with giving up runs. Not because of poor fielding, but just because our starting pitchers are so-so.

It seemed it would go that way in the first game vs. the Cubs but our bats just suck right now. Especially with runners in scoring position.

    • I was watching the Daily Show from last night for a few minutes, and they played the part where the lady in the red dress was asking Paul Ryan to step down.  What got me was how she was excusing Trump for not knowing how to be a politician, and how Ryan and other congressional republicans had led him astray.   They made the point that it sounded a lot like a mom who was making excuses why her son was failing school...   All I got to say is a big old WTF is going on?  You run for President, you have to be prepared to actually BE president, which Trump was not.  The poo show we're seeing is simply a result of people being angry and voting emotionally (during the primaries) for the "other guy" because they thought it couldn't get much worse (due to the Fox News/Obama = the End of the World nonsense).  Welp...
    • Yeah if Hillary got elected and took credit, not a single left wing kook on this site would start a thread calling her out on it.  Yet more proof you are a bunch of morons.
