I kind of wish Hanigan could be behind the plate for Harang today. They seem to work well together but maybe Dusty wants to split up the catchers for this day-night two game series. I bet Hanigan starts tomorrow afternoon.

Let's get another win tonight guys! RALLY ONION!!! :D

Would've liked to seen Gomes get the day off and Heisey start. Like someone said in another thread the Braves have a big outfield and Harang is a fly ball pitcher.

Rolen with a bloop single. 1st & 2nd for Bruce

HeatherC1212
05-19-2010, 08:19 PM
IIRC, Jay Bruce hit the walk off HR off Kawakami back in 2008. I think he was in the bullpen back then. I could be wrong but for some reason that sticks in my head (I was at the game but I remember the HR better than the pitcher who gave it up, LOL).

Back to back singles. :D

05-19-2010, 08:20 PM
Kawakami good early. Getting ahead on every guy so far on first pitch strikes, had two strikes on everyone and just gave up a seeing eye single and bloop oppo single.

Aaron's either not locating well, or he's nibbling. Get behind and he's forced to toss a meatball up there. He needs to be MUCH more aggressive.

7 game hitting streak for Gomes after the single to center. I really like how he's altered his swing this past month. Slowing it down just a bit and spraying the ball.

Harang is off more often than not. He is, by far, the weak link in this rotation.

Nobody HERE does. I was referring to the press. As for the ERA...yep, it's bad. But he's still got a VERY good K/BB ratio and his ground ball rate is surprisingly good...even with the dingers given up. I'm not saying he's throwing well...but in comparison to other #4's & #5's? Comparable.

The furthest he's gone all year is 6 from what Brantley said. Could be that Cox want's to give the guy a shot for his first win without pushing him.

Seriously, someone remind Fox and ESPN that there are other teams out there besides the Yankees. They were all ready on Monday night, they're on tonight, and they're the game of the week on Saturday too. Seriously?! Do we really need to see them that much? :rant:

Yanks vs Rays would be the marquee match up though....

Owings usually runs out of gas after 3 or so. If Maloney is over the blisters he may be a better option. With Harang making all that cake he will be given every opportunity to get right.

It was a bad AB from Stubbs and Hernandez as well. Stubbs swings through or swings at really bad pitches even when ahead. He hits like a pitcher.

So would I, but you can't release Harang can you?

If you feel he can't improve and you can't trade him then you have to either move him to the bullpen or release him.

He might be able to go to the minors if he agrees to it, but I'm not 100% sure about that.

I agree with holding Brandon. No need to make an out at home when you're down 4-0. The guy got to the ball in a hurry out in left field and could have had a play.

No use risking it really though... You need more than 1 run here... Don't chance the out there with only 1, and Rolen/Bruce due to follow... Holding him was the right choice...

I agree. But did you notice Berry putting up the stop sign...then waving him in...then throwing up the stop sign again. I could understand it if there was a bobble or something...but that was pretty straight forward. Just bad 3rd base coaching IMO.

Phillips would have been out...he hit the bag right when the cutoff guy got the throw back. He would have been out with a half way decent throw.

Glad Berry is actually more reserved when it comes to sending runners this year.
