Pizzaro too bad youll be crying in your beer this year looking up at the braves againafter our brief 3 year absents, just like you did for 14 straight years lol
February 23rd, 20094:36 pm
I agree with you that these “around the horn” ratings don’t tell you anything about the makeup of a ballclub. But if you want to get a rating of GMs, I’d go Frank Wren over Omar Minaya easily. Edgar for Jurrjiens and Hernandez was a robbing, and what’s being lost in the story about how many failed negotiations the Braves have had this offseason is that they ALWAYS had a plan B. As soon as Peavy didn’t happen, they moved on to Burnett. As soon as Burnett was gone, they moved on to Lowe. Having a contingency plan is a sign of good management. I can’t think of any great moves that Minaya has made, aside from spending a lot of money on top tier talent….which is a fine way to operate, but it’s nothing special. Anyone can give Santana the biggest contract in the majors….finding a hidden gem is the sign of a GM doing a great job.
February 23rd, 20094:38 pm
Gary- Arguing that Santana is only slightly better than Lowe and Gonzales is on par with K-Rod just makes you look lost. No one in baseball would defend either one of those points – no one.
If Lowe is so good why was he the Braves 3rd choice? Are you saying Burnett is as good or better than Santana? Come on.
As for Church never being as good as Frenchy, you do realize that in 280 less at bats last year he had 1 more HR and only 21 less RBI’s than Frenchy? Prorated over the same number of at bats Church would have 11 more HR’s and 22 more RBI’s than Frenchy had. I think saying never might be a bit of an overstament knowing what we do at this point is all I’m saying. Neither one is a lock.Both have potential to boom or bust imo.
February 23rd, 20094:39 pm
RC…fair enough, I can definitely see your point and of course Gonzo wasn’t winning any pennants for the Pirates, but closing is closing in my opinion. Either you can do it or you can’t. As far as Wright’s power vs Chipper’s…..Chipper has proven he can still go deep. The health is a big thing, but the fielding is still Chipper’s by a wide margin. Wright has won two Gold Gloves, but he deserved neither of them. He makes more errors than most infields do and plays out of position at times. He will get better just as Chipper did, but right now I still give the advantage to Chipper. I guess we can agree to disagree on this one. At least you aren’t calling me a homer and backing it up with homer projections of your own (JMar). lol!
February 23rd, 20094:40 pm
I agree about Wren. People are acting like Schuerholtz left the organization. He is still there advising Wren, who is doing buisness the same way John always did. We had a good off season and the farm is stronger than ever, what else can you ask for.
February 23rd, 20094:42 pm
Anderson, Escobar,Chipper,Anderson,McCann,Frenchy, Johnson, Kotchman not a bad lineup and look at our bench outstanding Prado,Infanate, Daiz, Ross,and our pinching Hitting machine Norton
February 23rd, 20094:43 pm
Pizzaro So the Mutts have a .563 winning pct the last three years huh? Answer me this one, what’s their winning pct the last three years in September? LOL, not quite .563 now is it. How bout their winning pct in the post season those three years? You can’t blame anyone other than your CHOKING CLUBHOUSE for the Mets being viewed as they are now….CHOKERS
February 23rd, 20094:44 pm
very deep starting pitching and even deeper bullpen and young studs waiting in the wings
February 23rd, 20094:45 pm
I dont think we as Brave fans have anything to be concerned about and we have always had the mutts number anyway
February 23rd, 20094:50 pm
this blog is hard to keep up with
February 23rd, 20094:52 pm
these chips are making me thirsty.
February 23rd, 20094:55 pm
I think the Mets on paper look a little better than us this year. We may have an advantage over the haul of a season because of the depth in our starting pitching. And it isn’t as if the Mets lineup doesn’t have its own fair share of ifs. Castillo is an aging speedster. Delgado has to stay healthy and produce like he did in the 2nd half of last year vs the 1st half (Everyone was calling him finished before the all star break). Church must stay healthy for once in his career. If he goes down that OF looks thin. Murphy must continue to develop or they’ll be dependent on Fernando Tatis for more and more production. That would worry the mess out of me.
Guys how is Santana above Lowe? We always seemed to do well again Santana. When he was with Minnesota, Hudson lost that game that he pitched when Bob Stinkman couldn’t keep the lead in the Metrodome. And please remember, the Braves beat Santana 3 times on the mound and another time in a game he pitched as well. So there is no advantage there. The Edge between Wright and Chipper is Chipper because there is one HUGE advantage. The Mets can’t get him out. The Braves get Wright, though. Plus, The other reason Chipper and Wright are close to even is because of Chipper’s injury history. Chipper is a better defensive 3rd baseman than Wright. I still haven’t grasped how you make 20+ errors on the hot corner and still get a gold glove but can’t change the past.I think his assessment of the Mets/Braves breakdown is on point.
February 23rd, 20094:56 pm
Fischerking04: He’s pitched against them twice now in three days. Much better reaction today from hitters regarding his stuff. He added curveballs and cutters, after throwing almost all fastballs the other day. Diaz said even though he knew the big curve was coming (the catcher will tell them what pitch is coming in this early BP), Diaz still had to “re-trigger” his swing in mid-pitch.
He’s got very good location and started to show today what he was known for in Japan, being aggressive and throwing inside against hitters, throwing that cutter on their hands, etc.
February 23rd, 20094:58 pm
DWW: Wren is by the batting cage a lot during these early workouts. He doesn’t just leave the evaluating to anyone else. He’s out there an awful lot.
February 23rd, 20094:59 pm
C’mon… I mean I’m a homer and all, but Johan Santana is the best LH in baseball. The Braves have had some success in games he’s started, but let’s not suggest the Braves have a better #1 than the Mets.
I do think the next 4 spots, plus the minor league depth, and the bullpen, are up for question though.
We have blogress! Both on the part of the AJC as well as the Braves/Wren. Keep up the good work.
February 23rd, 20095:02 pm
Perez over the last two years is 25-17 with an avg ERA of 3.89 while Vazquez is 27-24 with a 4.21 ERA. Those numbers prove you incorrect my friend PIZARRO
gee do you think the fact that Perez is pitching in a pitcher’s park in the NL and that Vazquez was pitching in the AL in the best hitter’s park in baseball might have something to do with those ERAs? The last two years Vazques has a slight edge in ERA+ which takes into consideration league and park effects. Would have been a noticable edge if Ozzie hadn’t pitched him on such short rest the last 4 starts of the year.
February 23rd, 20095:03 pm
Absolutely mbatl…Santana is a beast.

February 23rd, 20095:10 pm
By the way, that was Soriano’s first time facing hitters today. Went well. I didn’t see more than a couple of balls hit hard off him.
February 23rd, 20095:11 pm
Just a moment to point out just how little can be told by “who’s #3 pitcher is better, Braves or Mets?”.
Let’s say the Mets pitchers had “values” of 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2. Now let’s say the Braves pitchers had “values of 9, 7, 5, 3, and 1. One would look at this and say “The Mets should beat the Braves 5 times out of 5″. However, what if the 5 games were 1 vs. 10, 9 vs. 8, 7 vs. 6, 5 vs. 4, and 3 vs. 2. In that case, the Braves should win 4 of 5. My point is that the marginal difference between “who’s #3 starter is better” is too simple to judge over the course of an entire season. For instance, which is better, a 2.00 ERA for 75 innings, or a 3.00 ERA for 200 innings? It’s all a matter of perspective.
February 23rd, 20095:13 pm
2 pages? 3 pages? Every time I refresh, I get a different set of posts. But, at least the guys are working on it, I guess.
RC…That makes way too much sense. Get that trash out of here.
February 23rd, 20095:19 pm
DOB – I gotta ask. Have the guys that are trying to fix this blog ever actually used a blog? I mean, it a fairly simple concept that they appear to be complicating. Hit refresh. You come back to the same place you were with any newly added posts. Repeat.
February 23rd, 20095:20 pm
Just trying to raise the level of discourse here Danga. I’d much rather be discussing which of our 3 young OF’s should make the team than who has the better 5th man in the bullpen, Braves, Phillies, or Mets (My vote is for Anderson, but I’d like to see B. Jones get regular playing time at some point this season).
Trade in 1 problem for another one. Seems like ever since DOB put his mug up on the top of the blog there have been problems. Hey DOB…You have mobs of teenage girls shrieking everywhere you go yet? The AJC sports page can’t handle the celeb status.
Damn, of course my last post did just what it was supposed to do! Oh well, must be September.
February 23rd, 20095:24 pm
RC…Elevated discourse doesn’t normally last long on a blog, but I commend you for giving it a go. That was a very good point, and it was a way that I had not yet looked at it.
Being a sucker for prospects…I would like to see B. Jones get some playing time, too. I think he can be a productive player, but it appears as if right now an injury is going to have occur in order for him to get some pt.
February 23rd, 20095:25 pm
Look where vazquez was pitching and who his manager was – vazquez is going to be a different guy in Atl than he was in Chicago. I am not saying he is so much better than perez i live in NY and i like Perez but i believe he is the better pitcher and he wll show it this year in Atl

February 23rd, 20095:28 pm
DOB we need your confirmation:
is that an Atlanta brave’s A on Moylan’s forearm?
B. Jones had a huge opportunity last year, and unfortunately didn’t take advantage of it – I do think he had a shoulder problem most of the time, which is real unfortunate – but he could’ve really stepped up and made a name for himself at a time when we had nothing in LF.
He may get another chance, but the field just got more crowded with the addition of GA. He’ll probably be in Gwinnett this year; just needs to work on his game and be ready if he gets another chance in Atlanta.
February 23rd, 20095:29 pm
Hey DOB, anyone talking about the Rays down there? I know it’s early, but I’m trying to figure out who’ll play in the WS.

February 23rd, 20095:30 pm
Can we give this Braves/Mets comparison thing a rest? I mean, we’ve already got something to do that for us…they’re called games. There are 162 of them. After completion of said games, we will know who is better. And the best part is…they’re right around the corner!
February 23rd, 20095:36 pm
but the fielding is still Chipper’s by a wide margin. Wright has won two Gold Gloves, but he deserved neither of them. He makes more errors than most infields do and plays out of position at times. He will get better just as Chipper did, but right now I still give the advantage to Chipper. GARY
now that is really funny. Only a Braves homer would say that, nobody else in baseball would.
February 23rd, 20095:39 pm
Nolie…Is D. Wright actually considered a good defensive 3b? The times I’ve seen him play (small sample size) he looked awful out there. Never did understand why he won those gold gloves aside from being in a huge media market.

This Blog Is Seriously Sick
February 23rd, 20095:44 pm
I just bet this was a good blog today with lots of valuable info. The only problem is I can only see comments from 3pm on. (
I’m aware that this is being addressed. Just hope it’s addressed sooner rather than later. This is perhaps the most “news” filled time of the year in MLB.
I realize this isn’t under DOB’s pay grade, just want the AJC technical guys to “get it.”
I hope the AJC IT folks are better than the IT group we have where I work. If not, this might be broken until November!
February 23rd, 20095:46 pm
I posted this question earlier this afternoon but was at work and didn’t get to check before it got cut off, so I’ll ask again….
Why is Matt Diaz considered a platoon player? I was looking at his splits and he hit .318 against righties in 2007 and .358 in 2006. He may not be a power hitter, but I’d want someone that’s hitting well over .300 in my lineup. He didn’t do so hot last year, but he had few ABs and was hurt I believe (right?)
if yiou dont like it then dont read it – noone said you had to care what other people care about
February 23rd, 20095:47 pm
nolie, yeah, well it seems to be stabilizing. I hope they get it worked out…
btw, fangraphs has Chipper as a better defensive 3b than Wright last year, by a small margin (both are good, not great). I’d take Wright on my team anytime, and of course CJ has a hard time staying on the field, so that factors into it.
February 23rd, 20095:53 pm
DOB, As someone asked earlier, is there any news on who OHMAN has decided to sign with?
February 23rd, 20095:55 pm
Mr. Nosemorthanu,what the hell is that crap scale of teams? Why even waste your time doing that? And why is McCann only a 7?
February 23rd, 20095:58 pm
Nolie…Is D. Wright actually considered a good defensive 3b? The times I’ve seen him play (small sample size) he looked awful out there. Never did understand why he won those gold gloves aside from being in a huge media market.
He’s rated as somewhat better that Chipper by most, but I posted that because GARY was saying Chipper was way better. I agree that Chipper is much better now than he was in his first go-round at third when most saber-guys considered him one of the worst in BB, but way better than Wright he is not.

February 23rd, 20096:29 pm
Has anyone posted that here today? Just talked to my dad. He was at a doctor’s office and happened to see today’s USA Today Sports section on a table. Dad said that the article was “funny.” (He’s from Atlanta and a Red Sox fan. He didn’t get on the Braves’ bandwagon when they came to Atlanta.)
It does include an interesting quote from Wren:
“We were on the attack,” Wren says. “When we set out on our offseason plan to build the club, there were a lot of guys we (decided internally to) make an offer to. I don’t know where it was coming from, but it seemed like every offer we made was in the (news) media. It teased our fans.”
So, we had leaks?
February 23rd, 20096:30 pm
From purely a baseball standpoint, I agree that Anderson is a better fit than Griffey. Jr is a player you have to plan around being without, much, if not all of the time. Wouldn’t surprise me if he goes down the first week; he’s at that stage. Could have been another Hammy for us. lol

February 23rd, 20096:51 pm
mbatl, Brandon Jones actually had no shot at making the club last ST. Not with Infante opening the season on the DL and Kotsay’s back starting in CF. Braves had to have a warm body to backup CF, and that ain’t Brandon, I’m afraid. Even had he been healthy and had a good spring, he was AAA-bound all the way.
After that, he never got untracked in the minors and couldn’t grab the job when Diaz went down. Just never got his swing going, all year long (health or head or both, maybe). Lots of posters here judge him on his weak ML numbers in a small sample, or his minors numbers in a down year, and call him AAAA or whatever. People are entitled to their opinions, certainly, but the guy is no slug. He can play. Not in Atlanta, I suppose, LOL, but he can play.
We’re overloaded with left-handed hitters and right-handed pitchers. And so many righties without many options.
Dob, I’m going to spring training games march 13-15. Can i extrapolate from the rotation in your blog who’ll be pitching those days? Or is it way too early to start trying that?
February 23rd, 20096:52 pm
nolie – David Wright makes some awesome plays at 3rd, he made 1 bad error in the Sep run down last year but the other “Mucils” effed up a lot more… he is a gamer and a quality star

Anyone who says Santana is only slightly better than Lowe is someone who is out of touch. Santana has a .681 winning percentage. A 2 time cy young award winner and a 3 time all star. a life time ERA of 3.11. Lowe is a 2 time allstar(6 yrs older), .541 winning percentage and NO CY YOUNGS……Santana is far better!!
February 23rd, 20097:08 pm
Yeah, but Santana plays for the Mets…Ewww.
I gone to this blog on and off for the last two or three years and read each time how much better the braves were gonna be than the Mets. Then the season ends and it’s not the case. I’ve never said the Mets haven’t had their problems holding on the the division in sept the last two years. But they have in that time played better baseball than the braves. The only way you can choke is if you have a chance in sept. The brave didn’t choke because by then they were long gone and out of it.

’scoots, I agree completely on B. Jones. Was never an option out of ST, but he did great in his first callup last year, and then not so great (well, bad) in his second, when I do think he was hurting.
Believe me, I’m in no hurry to give up on a guy who’s been a very good prospect for several years. But, his path to the majors did just get a lot tougher with the acquisition of GA.
I would guess he’s in Gwinnett to start the year, and is the first call-up if G.Anderson, Diaz or Francouer should go down.

February 23rd, 20097:20 pm
Braves Fan Chris24 –
The Steiners (loved the “Frankensteiner” finishing move!), but can’t argue with your Top 3, either!
Santana vs Braves = .000 winning percentage. That probably has a LOT to do with the “value” attitudes on a BRAVES blog. If you want agreement, go back to a METS blog! Especially given the success the Braves have had against Santana, I believe I’d have to take Lowe vs the Mets line-up over Santana vs the Braves line-up. Not quite the same as the “who’s better” question, but explains a lot about valuations from a lot here. I’m sure you’d take the other side of the equation, but that’s what makes baseball worth playing April – October, and blogs worth reading in February!
Pizzaro-Yeah, we know-Santana is probably the best pitcher in all of baseball, right? He didn’t lead you to a Division win though, did he? Maybe it takes more than ONE good pitcher.
You realize that if the Mets are real lucky (weird concept there) that Santana will prove to be one of the few Free Agent signings that the Mets have made that might actually be worth what he’s been paid?
February 23rd, 20097:21 pm
Why don’t you go on the Phillies blog and talk trash? According to you we are no threat anyway so why don’t you go talk to the fans of the team that won the division and the world series?
i cant believe that guy's name is "shut up DOB"!
schafer would have to absolutely explode to earn an opening day nod. the reason being is j anderson is out of options and we are only going to carry 4 outfielders. with diaz obviously being the fourth. we will give anderson a couple of months to see what he does and if he doesnt impress then schafer will be called up.

Definitely, Steiners are without a doubt one of the best teams ever. They are definitely in my top 5/10 for sure though.
I remember the days of watching WCW Saturday Night and watching them compete. Then for the other old school teams watching Saturday Night’s Main Event. Get the DVD it’s awesome, blatant cheap plug lol.
As far as GA goes. I think with him on the team, he could help Kotchman if he were to struggle at all. If they are close like it has been said, it’ll be a big help for not only them, but the team overall in the big picture sense.
What happens to JJ Reyes this year… AAA ??
Buddy Carlyle ???

dogs—you name the bet bro. The Mets will win more games than the braves….no question. They are top to bottom a better team. They were last year and will be again this one.
