Wow, so embarrassing.  Manny said that we would be spoilers... no chance of that.  I won't be surprised if we lose every single game to the Mets/Phillies/Braves.  The only teams we can beat are losers like the Reds, Giants, and Marlins.

LOL @ Zimmerman.  Work on your damn throws.

According to Bowden Zimmerman should win the gold glove but I think he too is caught up on the spectacular plays that Zimmerman makes and is conveniently overlooking his awful throws.

walks the #8 hitter on 5 pitches.. Anyone who thinks that Joel can be a big league pitcher is wacko.  He is woeful.  Good thing he'll be gone after this season.

Yes Bob, 3 runs is two runs more than Smoltz needs to win this game.

This is teetering on one of the most embarrassing losses of the season.  I have to, at least, blame Manny for this kind of performance.  This team couldn't be more uninspired and that's the manager's job, to get them ready to play!

Looks like Manny really had 'em ready to play tonight.

Please no more talk of Zimmerman being gold glove until at least next season if he can show that he can control his throws.

Careful guys or you'll get ripped :lol:

So in essence that wound up being like a sac bunt by Smoltz :?

Nope.  2 leadoff walks so far in 3 innings.  Our offense is just that damn bad.  They act like they have never seen Smoltz before in their lives.

Had it at 3rd also but Zimmerman threw it away. Let's not let Zimmerman off the hook.

Anyone who is ok with this performance should shoot themselves.  This is unacceptable from a Major league Team and it is all on Manny.

I've got Smoltz AND ChipperJones starting on my Forum Head-2-Head Fantasy team...
Makes a game like this go down easier... 

Zimmerman STILL keeps screwing up throws.  2 errors. 
And ANOTHER error!  NOBODY COVERS HOME!
Here comes the frickin dead kitten...

You want to get over this "it's all on Manny" crap? It's getting stupid. This is a worse-than-average team playing a better than average team. That's not Manny's fault. There's only so much you can do with inspiration.

I would have left Hanrahan's worthless ass out there to eat innings.  No reason to burn through the bullpen for the 2nd straight game when the game is already over.
