wow!!!!!!! the braves just posted one of the greatest comeback wins of all time against the reds. We were down 9-3 in the ninth inning, when we were able to get it to 9-6.Then, with the bases loaded and 1 out, brooks conrad hit a pinch hitting, walk-off grand slam to beat the reds 10-9.

The braves are really starting to turn it on. They've won 13 of their past 19 since the dreaded 9 game losing streak, and 8 of the past 10 games are wins.

The offense has really come alive, and we havent had to rely on heyward so much.

Haha. But that is soooooooo right. The Braves are definitely back into this thing.

In fact, we might even have a better record then Boston.



By the way, today was the last day of school for me, so it's officialy SUMMER TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
however, it seems like such a melancholy feeling, and very bittersweet.

Definitely enjoy it while you can
Trust I will, and I will savor it for some years to come.
This is only the beginning.

He might have been born in Jersey, but he grew up in McDonough. I know some people that went to Henry Co. High with him and they say is a str8 Georgia Boy. The Braves will lock Heyward up long term next year just like they did Chipper back in the day. He has single handidly energized the fan base. I see those "Heyward's my buddy" t-shirts all the time. I really dont think Braves will let J-Hey get away.

Well, Melky just hit his first home run of the year for us and Chipper is starting to improve. It would be really nice if they could both get hot and catch up to everyone else.

The Braves have been playing pretty well lately, that's always a good thing. I find it interesting that Eric Hinske has been to the last three WS (Bos in 07, Rays 08, NY in 09) and I want him to make it a 4th but more importantly, I would like for Eric to get his third ring. LOL...So is Melky officially a bench player? I ask because Hinske doesn't belong on the bench in my opinion. Well, I want to be brash and say that they'll sweep but I don't feel like it...Go Braves (please take 2/3).

The hype surrounding Heyward was intense, but it apparently wasn’t intense enough. We’re in the midst of watching one of the great rookie seasons of all time from a player whose peers are still working out the kinks in A-ball.

^^^Good read there. Braves win 7runs to 2runs over the Marlins of Florida (I'm going to start saying it that way). Jason Heyward had two walks (BB's for the stat zealots) and the Braves actually lead the league in walks [insert shocked face] with 209.
