Smoltz has struggled even with getting every single freaking call from the ump and Traber's bad running error.  Very good hitting by us tonight

Very nicely done - even with the huge gaff - still capitolized - braves pen already up and throwing - ok Billy, time for redemption ... shut em down ...

On the Braves board, they are saying that West the ump is screwing Smoltz.  They are blind, Traber isn't getting half the calls Smoltz is.

Well, it was followed up by a quickie out for the pitcher!  :D

Nice inning Billy! Our starting pitching (minus Ortiz) has been great as of late.

:rofl: Smoltz and Giles felt so bad about Longhands' 9-pitch at bat that they decided to help Billy out

Frankly, I think that both clubs have gripes ... there is no consistency to this strike zone at all for either pitcher ... the worst of all scenarios ...

Ok, let's score a few more runs and lay another 30 pitches on Smoltz!

I give Ortiz a pass - he's been the most consistent pitcher all year - he gets a bad outing - Billy looking good - good clutch hitting ... nicely done so far tonight

Just show your bias, West. Don't be afraid. My goodness.

I hate you Joe West and I hope you get fired. You better not be doing the postseason this year because you don't deserve it.

JOE WEST YOU DO NOT WAIT TEN MINUTES TO MAKE A CALL! THAT IS BS! THAT WAS NOT A STRIKE EITHER! GET OFF THE FIELD, JOE!


That's total BS!

That 4-0 is already making me wonder who's going to be pitching in the 9th :?
