    Yesterday's game is the toughest of them all to swallow, though. All those runners stranded, Hanson only giving up an unearned run on Chipper's throwing error...and not even having a chance to try to come back. :(

    Ouch, rain delay costing the Braves the game. Definitely one of the worst ways to lose a game.

    Hey, look, the Braves have scored today! More than 1 run, even!

    Yep, 8 in a row. Only team with a worse record is Baltimore (though some others are 8-13 or 8-12 as well)

    Really can't blame the pitching, though - they've done pretty well. Just can't score runs. And its hard to win when you get shut out, no matter how good your pitching is.

    Feels like 3 losses in one today. Not only did the Braves lose their 9th straight, but also lost Jair Jurrjens and Yunel Escobar to injury. Fortunately, neither looks to be serious (Jurrjens is hoping he'll be ok to start next week and Escobar is day to day)... but we'll see.

    8 good innings from Tommy Hanson and the sixth homer of the season for Jason Heyward. More important, it was actually a win :) Finally.

    Hey[ward], a sweep! :D

    :p

    It would be fair to say right now that as Heyward goes, so go the Braves :p

    It does seem like it though, doesn't it?

    Saw the splits on that the other day... in Braves victories, Heyward is batting over .400; in losses, under .100 - that's a pretty big difference :p

    I just got Heyward in a trade. Now if only McCann could heat up a little.

    The rest of the team needs to heat up a little :p

    Wow, Heyward's doing really well so far. Possible ROY this season if this continues?

    He needs to get more consistent first. But yes, he should be in the running for ROY.
