Blue - I thought I had heard that and yes you are right.  A Rule 5 apparently taken out of the Angels organization who had TJ and then spent 2 years in the minors.

Uh wut....

Never heard a bad thing about chipper

When Scott Olsen flirted with a no hitter a couple years ago, Chipper said that he "didn't have no-hit stuff".

Reds lose.  We're 1.5 games up for best record in the majors.

It was Hudson, who is, unquestionably a prick.

I fully expect Hudson to win MLB man of the year after hearing your report on his personality.

They're professional athletes.  Most (not all) have been catered to and are entitled, elitist pricks.  I'm more surprised when you find one who's a normal dude than when you find one who's not and when you do find one, they're usually the ones who haven't been through the fires yet.

good call on Miguel Gonzalez, JCA.

Gave up 7 hits and 5 ER in 6.1 IP vs Jays tonight, taking the loss.

You're right, I'm wrong.

Quote
"You've got to tip your cap to [Olsen]," Hudson said. "He's got pretty good stuff, but let's be honest, I don't think he's got no-hit stuff. He was mixing things up pretty good and had us off-balance, and we couldn't do much against him for a while."

Quote
Like Jones, Matt Diaz carried a .440 career batting average into this game against Olsen. But in each of his three at-bats against the Nationals' left-hander, the Braves' left fielder looked at a called third strike, and then issued a few choice words in the direction of home-plate umpire Bill Miller.

"He got called out on some bad pitches," Cox said.

When asked for his opinion, Jones said, "No comment. I'll get fined if I comment. It's happened before and it will happen again."

The Braves take a 1-0 lead after Jhoulys Chacin drops the throw back from the catcher and lets a runner from third score. :?

welp, Chacin's 2011 season was an epic fluke. This guy sucks.

Bases loaded in the fourth with 1 out for Heyward. ABout to blow it open

wow, Greg Reynolds comes in and gets Heyward and Freeman to pop out to strand the bases loaded. Still 1-0 ATL after 4

His stuff is way down, body language sucks. He'll never produce numbers again like he did in 2011.

Rockies going to lose 1-0 again lol

Braves 1/30 with 0 RBIs in their last 30 ABs with RISP. Can't believe they keep squeaking by against these bad teams.

I'll bet losing back to back games by a 1-0 score where the one run is unearned happens less often than hit six homeruns in back to back games.

Yeah really annoying. The Braves didn't deserve to win today or yesterday. They are playing terrible baseball right now. Lucky to get by
