original jon<i.From where? Where will we have money coming off the books at? Name it?
i know you didnt ask me, but i made the same statement several blog ago, so i will defend it. mike gonzalez will be a free agent ($3.45mil, soriano will be a free agent($6mil), greg norton will be(about $1mil), as of now, chipper will be($11mil), and i believe vazquez will be traded after this year so that hudson’s option can be picked up, so thats another $11.5 mil, or if hudson is not retained, $12mil.
so, by those numbers, the braves will have about $33mil coming off the books after this year. thats just about the same amount as they had this year. they will probably use the money to extend chipper and sign a closer, and maybe after raises, they can afford a 1 year outfielder option… the braves in extremely good shape as far as the budget is concerned.

OK, I really had the bug…was really excited about that one o’clock game on the 26th being on TV…then I found out:
I’m getting my hair cut at 1:30 that day.
Oh well…guess that’s what DVR is for…
February 19th, 20094:49 pm
getnathan What?????? That makes no sense at all.
Griffey’s close friend’s maid could not be reached for comment.

This just in…Dewey defeats Truman
Eric In Albany-My wife and I were at that game, too. It was on my birthday-we just went and spent the whole weekend there. Everyone should go to the HOF someday. There’s a lot of great baseball history there and a town dedicated to nothing but baseball (and Last of the Mohicans) has got to be a great thing.
February 19th, 20095:00 pm
DAP Gonzalez will be re-signed, i will guarantee that, so look for a raise in that category. Chippers extension will probably be more than 11 million a year, the only person I could see losing is Vazquez, but we will be losing him and gaining another pitcher that makes 12 million in Hudson. So really, we are only losing 11.5 million.
I thought Alexander Hamilton was dead? If Citi is nationalized is the Mets’ew place still going to be Citi Field or U.S.Government Field? If I’m a baseball player in New York where nearly 1,000,000 people have lost their jobs, I would be very low profile about making over 10,000,000 a year. Probably not a good time to be saying “How am I going to feed my kids on that?”
February 19th, 20095:02 pm
Braves Fans… Stop the Griffey bashing… He was conflicted and took some time to think about it. When have you taken extra time to think about a decision that will effect your family and your legacy? All of you have and it is in the best interest for him to do so. News organizations and people should understand that a source is not 100% correct all of the time!
February 19th, 20095:03 pm
think we all need to remember that the most important thing here is family. Griffey said it’s important that he stays close to his family in Orlando. I don’t think any of us can blame him for picking Seattle so his family can visit him for a weekend when the Mariners play the Rays.
February 19th, 20095:04 pm
Good point. He shoulda been up last week when we had all that nice weather…lazy bum…
Now it’s a little chilly, but he cann tough it out.
February 19th, 20095:05 pm
Mike, it’s ok to think about something before you make a decision but to tell your friends that you are most likely going to sign with the Braves and then end up signing with another team is just ridiculous. Griffey should have kept his big mouth shut before he went and told friends that he was probably coming to the Braves.
February 19th, 20095:06 pm
getnathan — I see I must spell it out:
Only a hick Fillies phan would think Ibanez is an upgrade over Burrell.
What I don’t get is that Griffey left Seattle 10 years ago to go play for Cincinnati for less money. So how can Griffey care about the Mariner’s so much ? If he loved Seattle so much he wouldn’t have left Seattle to play for less money !!!
February 19th, 20095:08 pm
The smart people may be thinking that the leisure dollar may just take a hit. (Alexander Hamilton 4:47)
A truer statement has not been written on this blog today. People are squirreling away any discretionary $’s they have. Even those who still have their jobs and aren’t in imminent jeapordy of losing their home are tightening up their budgets “just in case”. Think of how much more discretionary income is spent today versus even 30 years ago? Travel, eating out, Movies, high end electronics, gyms, pools etc… Middle class America didn’t live like this 30 years ago. Now think of how quickly those things can be turned off versus car payments, mortgages, insurances etc that are required.
It’s not that people didn’t pull back on discretionary spending in tough times years ago, it’s that it represents much more of our economy than it did years ago. The spasm in this type of spending that is coming in the next 6 months will be violent. It will ripple through many, many industries. No reason to think baseball will be spared.
February 19th, 20095:10 pm
all you DOB haters—the whole goal is to get traffic on this web page, the best way to have an impact is not to post…so keep making this the busiest blog in the country
as far as luke scott—don’t the braves need a 3 or 4 hitter? scott ain’t either, so why settle for a minor upgrade? much better waiting to see what may be available later…if the braves get scott now, will they be able to afford a bigger bat if one comes up?
February 19th, 20095:12 pm
Eric In Albany N.Y. (4:54 pm): “i wanna read wrens book about this offseason… i mean WTF! the title would be “That’s A Long Story””
I dunno — I kinda favor “Weasels Ripped My Flesh!” for a title.
bhamhusky, what were the circumstances when Griffey left Seattle 10 years ago. I know he told the ownership he would only accept a trade to the Reds. Did he refuse to sign an extension or was it management’s decision to trade him?
I don’t find fault with him going back to Seattle, however I do find fault with bringing the braves into him making a decision.
I feel like I was in the limo on the way to pick up Ken Griffey Jr. for the prom, and now I’m pregnant and stuck rolling around in my double-wide from trailer park to trailer park with Matt Diaz. (Scott)
Great, great line. I swear if you work this enough you might have a country western hit on your hands.

February 19th, 20095:18 pm
we do not need any old geezers playing in the outfield!!! play the kids and give B.Jones, Schafer and Anderson a chance. I guarantee they will put up just as good or better numbers than Garret A and L. Gonzalez.
PLAY THE KIDS!!!!!!
February 19th, 20095:21 pm
I don’t think we’re making enough of the DH in Griffey’s decision. Seems to me the guy would like the idea of not having to work all that hard to earn his incentives – I mean, do you really think that they’re gonna make a big deal about the number of ‘put-outs’ or assists in the money they add on? It’ll be offense and it’ll be a lot easier to get when all you have to do is watch from the locker room and head out the dugout every few innings.

Gotta Love How We All End Up On The Blog For The AJC!
February 19th, 20095:26 pm
Scott, my question is why would you want to go to the prom with KGJ or Diaz. What are you saying??
dogsbrekky (aka the loser who got the Griffey story effed up)
Eric in NY – Yes, it is better than reading anything on a blog actually for a NE team………..
I think Schafer needs more time in the minors. Regardless of how he hits in a small sample size of spring training at bats. Go with Anderson or Blanco in center field(I’m guessing Anderson because Blanco has options) and, if you must, Diaz/Jones platoon in left field. I’d go with this lineup:
February 19th, 20095:28 pm
Efrim, pretty sad when your #5 hitter (Francouer) hit .239 with 11 homers last year.
Can we get a news story on Huddy and the AJC reporter confrontation – maybe from DOB? Seriously, can you take Huddy? More seriously(really), how about a daily dose of Anderson, Blanco, B. Jones, and Schafer. Two of these four are going to be up on opening day it appears. Come on Dave – we still like you. Don’t forget the Huddy question?
February 19th, 20095:29 pm
I know this has been said, but DOB shouldn’t accept any blame for anything. We live in a blog world where everyone has a website and people want instant news and stories. You were being responsible in reporting what you were hearing. So what if Griffey doesn’t want to play in Atlanta? Does that have anything to do with our economy melting down? No, so people please don’t blow something out of proportion and let DOB do a great job of telling us what is going on with the Braves. DOB, anything else to report from Orlando today?
way to kill a funny joke
February 19th, 20095:30 pm
The only one this team really missed out on was Furcal, (not Braves fault) the rest of them, well, whatever. (And I sure wouldn’t want to be in Furcal’s shoes when he walks up to the plate at the Ted.) They replaced Burnett with Lowe, from what I’ve read I guess Peavy never really wanted to be here anyway, plus he would have cost a lot of prospects (wtg Wren on holding firm). JR would’ve been a nice addition, but that’s okay. I’ll never understand why Smoltz bolted, except maybe he thinks this Braves team can’t contend. All that being said, the Braves didn’t sign A) a player with a back problem B) an injury ridden pitcher C) a 39 year old coming off of knee surgery. Plus they kept their farm intact.
IMO, it has been a sucessful offseason. You know what they say, sometimes the best moves you make are the ones you don’t.
ps – DOB – just wanted to say thanks again for all the hard work you do. Don’t listen to any of the haters, (not that you would anyway), you are the best at what you do.
February 19th, 20095:32 pm
Efrim – I’m going to try my best Dennis Green impersonation on you. “Anderson/Blanco, they are who we thought they were!” May the best man win the job.
coxlover, that is what the Braves have to work with. I suppose they can bat Francoeur 7th, Kotchman 5th and Diaz/Jones 6th. But you and I know BC isn’t going to do that. I’d be fairly shocked to see Francoeur hitting any lower than sixth in this lineup. Maybe against right handers, if Anderson bats leadoff(which I hope doesn’t happen).
February 19th, 20095:33 pm
No problems from me, Dave. You shouldn’t have listened to Terrance Moore first off. There’s a reason nobody likes that guy or thinks he is any good at what he does. At least we don’t have to read Moore’s articles about an African American signing with the Braves.
Keep up the good work, Dave. You do a great job.
Whoever asked if we’d visit a blog for the Gwinett Braves if they built it (sorry, too much trouble to go back and look for your name)… I would, definitely.
February 19th, 20095:34 pm
Hey folks…I’m thinking of heading down to FL for my spring break this year and catch some rays and some spring training baseball. Can any of you recommend a good area to stay in? Anything down there I absolutely should not miss while I am there?

Hammy the Brave
I’m not that upset that Griffey went to Seattle. Like you said he would just be a platoon OF here, was very old and injury prone. He also didn’t fit the Braves’ real need of a righty power bat.
Are you hearing if FW is actually trying to acquire one of those- say a Ludwick, Nady, Swisher, Willingham, Dukes? Also is he going after a younger (than Glavine)lefty starter- like J. Sanchez with SF or Olsen from Washington.
I think both these moves would fit the Braves real needs better, make them younger, and be fairly cheap also.Do you agree, or do you think a Lefty power hitter really fills our needs?
Love to hear from ya

Braves Leaning Toward Internal Options In OF
By Tim Dierkes [February 19, 2009 at 1:12pm CST]
ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick talked to Braves GM Frank Wren, who says the Braves are more likely to try their young outfielders than acquire a veteran outfielder after failing to sign Ken Griffey Jr.
Crasnick adds that the Braves “aren’t very excited” about Garret Anderson and have little to no interest in Jim Edmonds and Luis Gonzalez. He says the salaries of Xavier Nady or Nick Swisher might be prohibitive. Pure speculation on my part – the Braves could definitely afford Luke Scott if he’s available for trade.

Rosenthal says Glavine is back – to bad.
February 19th, 20095:47 pm
Rosenthal says Glavine is back – to bad. A waste of $$$ we may need later.
February 19th, 20095:49 pm
Now that we have Glavine back that makes us an instant contender.
Glavine is back to bad??? How do we know this yet, he hasnt even thrown a single pitch yet!
February 19th, 20095:51 pm
Glad to hear the Braves aren’t excited about Garrett Anderson, if that’s true. Who would be? He is 37 years old and horribly overrated. His lifetime on-base percentage is .327. It’s never been above .345 for a full season and his highest walk total ever is 38. Thirty-eight. For an outfielder with some power, that is horrific. His lifetime slugging percentage is very average for an OF and it’s looked more like a 2B lately. I say no way. Seriously, I would rather play the kids than spend any kind of money on Garrett Anderson, who was never better than average and is even worse now.
February 19th, 20095:52 pm

I don’t know if you guys read the Vents, but I hope no one did today….there’s a bunch of ignorant fair-weathered crap posted on there. My favorite: “Let’s bring up Heyward to platoon with Diaz.”
But Garrett Anderson is clutch.
i hope this wasn’t our dob
“But there was clearly some bitterness over the turn of events, some of it directed at media outlets that reported Griffey had decided to play for Atlanta. Pitcher Tim Hudson got into a heated argument in the clubhouse with a newspaper reporter, claiming his story angered Griffey and led him to back out of dealings with the Braves. A team official had to step in and lead Hudson to a back room.”

Cant Believe Anyone On This Blog. Not Even The Host… JK DOB… LOVE YA!
Been following this team closely since 1966 and if you can’t remember the 70’s & 80’s you don’t know what bad Braves’ baseball is. This team will be OK no matter what FR does or doesn’t do from here til the season starts. It’s gonna be a hoot! Lotsa fun. Like Ernie Banks used to say “can’t we play two?”.
I believe it was stated yesterday, but if Griffey chose to sign with the Mariners just because the AJC reported that he picked the Braves, then how big of a baby is he?
February 19th, 20096:05 pm
Tongue-lashing by Huddy? One T. Moore reported the conversation with Griffey’s friend, so it couldn’t have been him, now, could it?
February 19th, 20096:06 pm
i just cant believe that huddy, a grown man actually thought that a news reporter could sway griffey’s mind

February 19th, 20096:10 pm
Frank Wren is a complete joke….How does this guy have a job…wasn’t he fired by Baltimore? He’s screwed up an awful lot in a little over a year.
Top 10 Screw ups by the great Wren…
#10 Did we really pay a bouncer (Corky Miller) for a full year?
#9 Current OF debacle – worst OF in the major leagues, maybe in history of MLB.
#8 Failure to sign Josh Fields from UGA – who needs a reliever that throws 100 mph anyway?
#7 Signing Tom Glavine last year and losing a first round pick, unbelievable.
#6 Mark Texeira trade… couldn’t get more than another stiff for 1st base
#5 Rafael Furcal almost never was trade.
#4 Ken Griffey almost never was signing.
#3 Javier Vasquez trade…gave up the #1 power hitter in minor league baseball for 12-16 and an era of almost 5? + 14 years in age??? WTF???
#2 Francouer embarrassment – 3 days in the minors – lost all respect for him at that point.
#1 Smoltz divorce – ’nuff said’
Wren is a joke as a GM – - – is Billy Knight available…oh wait, he sucks too…Don Waddell? Oh he sucks too…Atlanta, GA where GM’s come to destroy franchises.

1992 I took my som and brother to Dodger Town in Vero Beach to watch our NLCS Champs. I miss those days when we battled it out with the Dodgers and the Giants. Anyway, what a blast it was to visit Dodger Town. Ryan Klesko had been invited to camp. They have these tall pine trees surrounding the outfield fence, and Ryan was hitting the ball over the tree tops during batting practice. You had to be there. chao.
Not matter what is mis-reported or what I will always value DOB’s opinion over Mark Bowman. Shows more personality through his blogs and keeps me entertained. Keep up the great work DOB!
February 19th, 20096:13 pm
YES he’s back according to foxsports .com. On paper we have on of the best 1-5 in the NL
Just couldn’t resist, folks. I wandered over to Bradley’s column, and who would have posted there but our old friend Coach, who had this to say:
“Since some seem to be wondering, the Braves were 11-30 in one run games last year. To say that our Bravos are in need of an infusion of talent, speed, youth and defense is an understatement. Griffy would have met none of these needs.
This obsession with the long ball by some of the blogger’s borders on the edge of insanity. It takes more than just the HR. Speed, aggressiveness and solid base running at the top of the order will do much toward scoring more runs. Not to mention that Chipper, McCann and Francoeur will see far more fastballs, thereby resulting in more HR’s.
The 2008 Minnesota Twins are direct evidence of this phenomenon. They hit 111 HR’s, stole 101 bases and hit 298 Doubles, resulting in 791 RBI.
Compared to the Braves 130 HR’s, 58 stolen bases and 316 doubles, resulting in 721 RBI.
That speed and aggressiveness more than made up for the lack HR’s from the Twins offense.
I would absolutely love to see what Josh Anderson and Jordan Schafer could accomplish if a certain Hall of Fame manager would turn them lose like he did with Otis Nixon and Deion Sanders.
If the 2008 Braves would have had any semblance of a running game, they could have potentially turned some of those 30 one run losses into victories. Even splitting half would have resulted in the 2008 Braves finishing 87-75.
As they say, speed kills, it never slumps and it doesn’t take the day off. It is no coincidence that the Mets and Phillies are two of top three fastest teams in the N.L. Guys like Jimmy Rollins and Jose Reyes are just totally devastating offensive catalyst for their respective teams. Our Braves have not been keeping up with the JONES, so to speak. They need to get with the program and I’m talking about the fast track…… if you know what I mean.”
Not a peep from the other posters. Amazing. He could never get away with such assertions on the Braves/MIB/BBQ blog. We’d eat him alive.
Wow, that last comment I made was full of mistakes, but I’m sure everyone got the drift.
February 19th, 20096:14 pm
Tom Glavine Bobble Head Day would have been much cheaper. Not to mention we’d enjoy it more than the real thing on the mound.
February 19th, 20096:16 pm
The thing I don’t understand about this whole Griffey-being-mad thing is why would he take it out on the Braves? The sources of all the media stories that said Griffey was coming to Atlanta all seemed to be from people close to Griffey, not from Atlanta front office folks. If he’s mad about these stories coming out, perhaps he shouldn’t talk about his plans with friends before he makes up his mind.
Also, I hope this Hudson vs. reporter story is overblown.
Obviously you guys didn’t go down to the capital steps and pray hard enough for Griffey to stay. Everyone knows in Atlanta that’s the proper way to get things done. hahahahahaha
February 19th, 20096:17 pm
I 100% agree with that post, if Anderson puts up the speed numbers he did in September in a full season. We should be in pretty good shape.
February 19th, 20096:18 pm
I’m equally as pissed that Griffey didn’t come to Atlanta as everyone else. But we shouldn’t blame you and start biting the hand that feeds us. You do a great job getting us the inside info and we are always craving it. You reported what you heard. You did your job. Does it suck that it had a big affect on Griffey? Yes, it does suck. Should Braves’ writers be a bit sensitive about what they report due to the numerous almost signings this off season? Yes, they should. But, honestly, if that was the difference maker, then that is kinda weak. In the end, he talked to Aaron and Mays and decided to complete his legacy. I hope the best for him and hope even more that the Braves get someone servicable to platoon in left with Diaz. Keep us informed DOB. Rock on, brotha.

They should have two special bobblehead days this season. A Griffey Jr one and a Furcal one, each with a face on the front and back of the head.
Oh, and one of Soriano made out of thin glass wouldn’t be bad, either.
And one of Smoltz made out of ANGER… uhh…
(I get the sneaking suspicion a two-faced bobblehead joke has probably already been done… oh well, I’m going with it…)
February 19th, 20096:25 pm
I just ran a news search and there’s only one story reporting Glavine signing…and it was posted about 30 minutes ago. Forgive DOB if he doesn’t sit with his nose glued to his laptop all day.
I’d love to see DOB’s picture above changed showing a little mouse under his eye and maybe a tooth missing but a wider grin signifying “You should see the other guy!”

I’m hearing that we could be having a Glavine press conference as soon as tomorrow.
February 19th, 20096:28 pm
Yo, DOB. To hell with all these heebs on your blog that are hating over something not even worth the time or negative bloggage. I think Griffey would have been a welcome addition to the Braves’ outfield and a good mentor to the youngsters, but I think most fans’ expectations weren’t high for him anyway.
You do a phenomenal job covering my team. I know you’re not sweating the negativity. Keep up the good work (know you will), and you were crystal clear on your explanation of what was ACTUALLY reported. Some people are skimming or don’t know how to read.
February 19th, 20096:30 pm
Glavine does have a pretty good bat, though.

February 19th, 20096:31 pm
DOB…I live in Central FL and have a friend the saw Jr’s mom today (he has a business relationship with her). She told him that Griffey quite simply just wanted to finish his career in Seattle…nothing more.
February 19th, 20096:34 pm
Steve, well if Griffey wanted to finish his career why did he drag the Braves into all of this mess ?
February 19th, 20096:35 pm
“Braves’ Furcal and Junior Pee Bottle Night at Turner Field” would also be popular, Bubdylan.
“Festivus in July: John Smoltz Airing of Grievances Night at the Braves” might work. The fan who exhibits the most support for the team’s handling of the Smoltz negotiations will receive an expired 20% off coupon for a Coke.
February 19th, 20096:38 pm
thanks for the news on Glavine Dob.
February 19th, 20096:39 pm
WooHoo, pretty much the equivalent to signing Barry Zito and letting Tim Lincecum rot in the Minors. Loyalty will kill you in the end.
Chop Chop, KC might be a Pepsi man…
February 19th, 20096:41 pm
I talked to Griffey today. He told me that he likes listening to Morrissey in the rain.
February 19th, 20096:42 pm
Well, Mrs. Griffey – it’s really not that simple. The Mariners had an offer to Griffey, Jr on the table for a while now. If Junior really wanted to go back to Seattle he would have gone ahead and signed the initial offer. No, he just decided he would use the Braves to see if he could that Mariners offer just a little bit sweeter.
February 19th, 20096:44 pm
I read this on yahoo sports.
But there was clearly some bitterness over the turn of events, some of it directed at media outlets that reported Griffey had decided to play for Atlanta. Pitcher Tim Hudson got into a heated argument in the clubhouse with a newspaper reporter, claiming his story angered Griffey and led him to back out of dealings with the Braves. A team official had to step in and lead Hudson to a back room
February 19th, 20096:45 pm
crap….just saw on ESPN that it turns out the Braves didn’t really draft Brian McCann.
February 19th, 20096:47 pm
This had to be what DOB was talking about with Tim Hudson yelling at him.
Bubdylan, if KC is a Pepsi man, he’s just as much of a traitor as Smoltz.
Dob, what kind of season do you expect out of Kawakami?
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
