He is supposedly changing his stance a bit - shortening it up. TP thinks he is striding too far and not getting any leverage from his back leg.

We were saying the same thing not too long ago. Ya'll won't be down long, especially once you get Rollins back.

We got lucky by not having to face Halladay or Moyer.

probably get a good indication as to how far the braves have come. l.a. has really a good young pitching staff and a pretty potent line-up.

i'm glad to see melky and chipper are hitting. heck, even escobar is finally coming out of it. but mcclouth though, if he would lay off the ankle biters, half the pitches he swings at would hit him in the shins if he stood still. till he starts laying off of those and starts hitting the other way, that's all he's gonna see.

They certainly will not be down for long. This will be a dog fight until the end. May the best, less cheating, team win.

Chipper has an "inflamed ring finger". Are you kidding me???

This man needs to take a lesson from Cal Ripken Jr. on playing through injuries and MAN UP! Wonder how many of these "inflamed fingers" and "strained toes" Ol Rip had during the streak.

He just has no drive anymore I guess. The Braves definately need to decide on what to do at third base next year. I dont know how well another coach is gonna put up with it. Then again..I got a feelin when Bobby goes so will ol Chip.

just a rhetorical question, and I'm not taking away from Ripken. I'm a big fan. But here's the question: Do you ever think there was a day during those 2632 games that Ripken felt that whomever his replacement was was a better option than him that day because of some ailment? If he played anyways, then he did it for himself, and not for the betterment of the team.

Because, while I am frustrated to no end about Chipper's injuries I actually think its a very unselfish play to say "you know what, I'm only able to play at 50% today and the guy behind me is the better option." And right now, a 100% Omar Infante is a better option than a 50-75% Chipper.

I'm frustrated with Chipper not because he won't play through pain. I think he plays through pain all of the time. I'm frustrated because I don't think he takes his conditioning seriously enough anymore.

Just my opinion.

Was Kris Medlen AWESOME or WHAT!?!?!

What a game!! I was NOT TOO Happy with Bobby taking him out of the game, because NOONE hit Medlen Hard........a few grounders found some gaps, but that was about it!

Anyway, Great to get another win! Especially against the Dodgers who are also playing really good ball right now!

Kris Medlen is a bulldog! Reminds me of Maddux! He's got a swagger about him this year he didn't have last year.

In the past Chipper has tried to play thru pain and hurt the team- smart move on his part. I am frustrated too about his injuries but he is mentoring Heyward which is huge.

Anybody else notice how Glaus won't step on the dirt in between the line and grass on the right field line? Every time he leaves the field to the dug out he hops over it. Anyone else notice it?

Sorry, it is late and I am bored! haha

If they keep Glaus he could play third. Good game tonight although the Dodgers just regained the lead.

Actually, that is a very common thing to do for many players, mostly pitchers, but other players also have "Rituals" if you want to call it that. My favorite was Ozzie's Back flip! That was the best!

You are joking right? Glaus is a HITTER, not even close to being a strong defensive person. Omar can play third, but he does lack the offensive Power that would be typical of a third baseman.

Now, back to last nights loss

TOO many Mistakes! BIG mistakes-most notable was Melky getting tossed out at second! It is amazing the game was as close as it was.
J-Hey went 0 for 5 with 5 strike outs, man that was painful

KK rebounded after missing his marks by a foot or better early.
O'flerity's(sp) first pitch was also off the mark by way over a foot, which lead to the winning run

I have been a big fan of Nate McLouth, but I am ready to SCALD HIM with the 3rd Degree Riot Act! AND sit him for at least the next game. Not because of his 0 for 4 at bats last night, but because he NEVER even Tries to throw home! This Lack of effort is unacceptable. Yea, I know that the chances of throwing out a taggin Furcal is about .05%, but what if Rafeal was to pull a Hamstring when he took off? What if he tripped on his shoe laces? NO EFFORT especially when noone else is on base, is UNACCEPTABLE!

Everyone in our division won, except US and the Marlins who lost to the Mets........Big set back, but hopefully we can rebound tonight-I expect we will!

About the only positive note on last nights game was that we made it as close as we did.........Thanks Yunel!

Sorry to see the Braves 9 game winning streak come to an end, but at least it was a close game.

After 6 innings, Braves were looking doubtful tonight losing 2 to 0, but in the 7th, Atlanta's bats got hot scoring 7 runs with the score 7 to 2 over the Dodgers in the top of the 8th led by Glaus's Homerun going ahead of Heyward & now Glaus leading the team in HR's. Escobar continues some good hitting after last nite leading the team going 3 for 4 and tonight going 2 for 3 so far, but Infante has 2 hits also right now going 2 for 4.

Box score so far:

Go Braves!
