Post-Game 56 Thread: Deep-Sevened

BRAVES 9, DODGERS 3

It was all going so smoothly. Chad Billingsley was cruising through six innings and had even doubled in an RBI. The Dodgers were up 2-0, but Bills opened the seventh by giving up three straight singles and a run. He was at 110 pitches, so Torre pulled him for Every Day Ramon Troncoso...who allowed four runs. Then Ronald Belisario gave up a two-run homer to Troy Glaus...and it was a seven-run seventh for Atlanta. I would describe the rest of the game, but instead I'm going to think about what it would be like to get a root canal right now. Less painful.

At least we don't have Qualls in our bullpen.

I thought this was Sweeney Todd at first, not a dentist.

I would have some qualms if we had Qualls.

Questionable Quandary. . Haeger or Qualls.

How Quaint Dusty.

While it sucks to blow it with first place in our grasp, first place on June 5 doesn't mean doo-wah dick.

I'd rather stay close all year and surge at the end (ala 08) than be in first all year, constantly feeling like it's going to slip away (ala 09).

That said, SCORE RUNS!

Retiring the "Keep Calm..." avatar for a bit.

Yeah

I think this might be a rough month for the boys. But I don't see them going in a tailspin. Keep pushing till Middle August and then all cylinders a go.

Also if you would have listed all the players on the DL already at the begining of the year I don't think I would pick them to be 1/2 out of first place.

Play Defense!!!

Josh

that might be the most frightening thing I have ever seen. That is worse than the Bull horn through the throat i saw earlier this week.

I was looking at Josh's avatar and thought it was Ken Landreaux for a sec there...
