Shut up stupid jerk!! Some jag off prospect made 2 good starts in a row.

Side note, anyone see the right cross Bautista took in the Jays Rangers game? Totally awesome!!!

I was surprised at the quality of the punch. MLB fights are usually crap.

I think I was more surprised Bautista didn't hit the deck after taking the shot.

I've got nothing against the bat flip per se, it's the way of the world these days.

I've got nothing against a heater in the ribs or thigh to the flipper either.

I'm sort of with the Jays Manager, though. Not sure why they waited until the last time they played. Last at bat. Gypped us out of 2-3 brawls. :)

Of course this mess wasn't his fault but I'd think this would actually be a relief for him. Who needs this shit.

His career record was going to take an absolute beating if they'd kept him the full season.

If they weren't going to fire him after the 2011 season, there's no point in firing him now. And make no mistake, he absolutely should have been fired after the 2011 season.

The players are the ones who should have been fired after that season.

But we can't do that so we find a scapegoat.

They also fired bench coach Carlos Tosca.

About damn time. That bench has been out of control for years.

I say we hire Johnny Bench. He'd be the best bench coach ever.

I never got the impression that Fredi was very sharp - he seemed kind of like a jock. Granted, there are countless bad late inning decisions he made (or didn't) but I always thought he was kind of a dipshit. Good guy - but a dumb dumb.

Tony LaRussa has a law degree so is there a correlation between intelligence and being a good manager.....maybe?

On the bright side LOLBudNorris lowered his ERA to 6.11 with 3 innings of one run relief.

The Braves have clawed their way to 27th in OBP and 25th in ERA.

And their 13 HR ties them with Nolen Arenado for the MLB lead.

Now that Fredi has been rightfully kicked to the curb, it's only a matter of time before they leave the '62 Mets in their dust.

Maybe they can catch up to America's Sweetheart Team and equal or pass the Twins.

You know, the team that's one game ahead of the Braves for historical awfulness.

Mark your calendars. July 26 and 27. Braves at Twins.

And the Twins are giving away a 1991 World Champ commemorative stein on the 27th.

Then we have the rematch in Atlanta on 8/16 and 8/17. Good seats still available for those midweek classics. No sweet giveaways but the thrill of top notch MLB action should be good enough.

Snitker almost got rid of our terrible shortstop by having him choke on a chicken bone.

But then he ruined Folty.

So it was a day of mixed success.

Folty, Perez, Teheran and Wisler are all 25 or younger. Vizcaino too. They all show promise. There is hope.

The offense is a grease fire. I don't know as much about Atlanta's hitting prospects.

Swanson and Albis (sp) is all I know about. I think they do have a young power hitting prospect. But he's in low A ball I believe. No clue about his name. Maybe Babe Ruth Jr is his name? That seems to ring a bell.

I love it! If you're going to suck be the suckiest sucks to ever suck!! Shoot for the stars young men.

I pulled for the Tigers back in 03 ( I even bought a Tigers hat) to break the Mets futility record and they broke my heart by coming up short. They inexplicable got hot the last week of the season and failed to reach the 120 L mark.

I think these Braves have the gumption, sticktoitness and talent (sic) to blow past the 120 L mark. God speed 2016 Atlanta Braves! I'll be watching

this was part of the reason we wanted to go, too. how was it? how long after the game did it take to get the stage setup? we went for the Run DMC concert a few seasons ago and it seemed to take forever for them to get the stage setup - like maybe 45 minutes? how long did he play for?

I'm not sure how long after the game he started playing. We had field passes and 7 minutes after the last out they took us down to the gate that we were going to get on the field through. We waited there about 10 minutes, then prob 15-20 minutes before he started. He played about an hour, not a whole lot shorter than his show at the Tabernacle in January.

It was great. Played everything I wanted to hear minus maybe one song and played a couple of songs from when he was with the Steeldrivers.
We feel really fortunate to have seen him up close twice in the last six months. I think those days are over. We're going to see him at a 20,000 seat amphitheater in Tampa in August.

And he knows his audience.
