3 pitches... 2 outs.

6 pitches... 3 outs   :thumbs: :worship:
I have the worst knee-jerk reaction when I see that damn worship smiley. :?

Our outs (when we're at bat) seem easier for them than their outs (when they're at bat) seem for us.

That's always the case.

Yeah, but do you really need to know how that is going to play out?

I'm willing to go on a limb and say Estrada and Mackowiak will not be responsible for 8 outs today.

You're right and that reminds me, didn't we have a link here to block that emoticon? I think soon I'm going to need that, if you know what I mean. When Dukes returns AZ will be intolerable :?

Because they won't get that many ABs because our offense blows.

If they get that many at bats.  We shall see.

I think thom used an adblock program that killed his smilies of choice.

Hill truly is kicking ass, so far.  I really, really hope his arm heals because this team seems to have 4/5 of a major league rotation with Hill/Redding/Lannan/Perez.

I have the gnawing sensation in my stomach.  This feels like a loss, already.

It's so sad that's the case when your pitcher has a one-hit shut out through 5 and the game still feels like we're going to lose.  :'(

So utterly freaking predictable.  Might as well be Jair Hudson.

This guy will go 9 on us because of his pitch count.  Our only shot to win is to get in their bullpen.

I'd use an emoticon to express what the Braves' starters always do to our line-up, but it's a little too raunchy.

Estrada looks like a chipmunk after a large feast, and he doesn't hit any better than one.

We need someone to come through in the clutch. Zimmerman, time to prove that that last game was no fluke

Hill is losing velocity.  Might be time to think of getting him out of there.

lmao.. Gilbert has announced that he is done for the season.  I won't be too upset if he goes elsewhere in the off-season.

freak that.  Give our bullpen a little rest while we can for once.  Hill's pitches have good enough movement that 87/88 is sufficient.

Let the Nick Young era begin.  I wish this team would've traded Gilbert before the deadline, but hindsight is 20/20.

Maybe it is just the gun.  He just hit 92.
