The shoe was on the other foot tonight...the part about no run support for Hudson. Anyway, Philly did what they had to do tonight and it was an enjoyable game, my squad just came up short (ATL will get Roy in Philly).

ATL is a tough squad!

This should be a very interesting year in our division.

Wow, you're being kind. Philly isn't even at full strength and they handled the Bravos like we're the Mets or Astros. The only positive that I notice with Atlanta so far is that the bullpen is legit.

we need more bats! We are second-worst in batting average in the national league and we are around the same area in home runs. We got blanked by all 3 phillies pitchers, even the one with a 17.56 era!!

In the words of the AJC, we can't rely on Heyward to create a miracle every game.

This offense shouldn't be this bad. Glaus and Chipper are washed up and that's the truth. It's obvious that Pendleton isn't helping these guys because they just go up to the plate and hack away. I expected Halladay to close shop but Kendrick & Moyer? I don't think normal people understand this but Moyer is almost 50 years old and his fastball is like 70 mph. This was just a bad series, I even got annoyed with the idiot who plays that fsu chop song. Nat, does it make any sense to play FSU's theme song when there's one out and you're down by five (Chipper did get a hit but still down by 5)? It's early and I'd like to think that they can sweep NY but who knows?

Itis too late to sweep New York, we've already lost two games to them.

And guess what the culprit was?............Yep that's right, OFFENSE!!!!!!

Please help me, because I have no idea what's going on. Even with our limited line up, we should still be doing better.

This really sucks!

Sloppy play is a factor too. Forgetting how many outs there are, nobody covering home, dropping fly balls all over the place. The Braves are a better team than this. They're not going to go very far this season if they give away series like they've given this one away. Still, they have a very decent shot at the wild card. They can be better than most of the NL if they get a handle on the fundamentals.

i said it before and i'll say it again. Atlanta doesn't need to beef up the bullpen. They need to beef up the line-up. Our pitchers are fine, but we need some damn offense. Come on Atlanta
