Broken glass, kisses, and more from Braves camp

    Lake Buena Vista, Fla. - It’s starting to warm up here in Florida, I gotta say. It’s either the sunshine, highs expected in the 70s today, or the kiss on the cheek I just got from the Big Cat by the batting cage. What can I say? It’s a traditional Venezuelan greeting and Venezuela is in the house.

 

   Our old friend Andres Galarraga, who’s coaching for Venezuela, saved my life once, actually. The Gold Glover reached out by the cage and caught a ball honing in on my head, unbeknownst to me.

   OK, I know, whatever, I’ll get to what you really care about.

   Tom Glavine threw a round of batting practice on the back field today. He threw about 25 warm-up pitches and 20 more to hitters at about 70 percent effort, mixing in fastballs, changeups and an occasional curve. The “crankiness” is still there, but he came away encouraged. 

   “There’s always that little bit of concern in the back of your mind when you’re not feeling as good as you want to,” Glavine said. “But I feel good about everything being structurally sound based on the way I was able to do what I did today. It’s just a matter of going through the process of getting my arm strength back to where I want it to be.”

   He was happy with his location and his spin but said it felt a little laborsome.

   “It’s just getting that last little bit to where it’s coming out nice and naturally and free and easy and I don’t feel like I’m restricted in any way,” Glavine said.

   Matt Diaz, Jason Heyward and Brandon Hicks did the hitting off him. Here’s what Diaz had to say:

   “Crafty as ever,” Diaz said. “Started off with a groundball to short, ended up with a groundball to short. He’s got movement. He looked free and easy. He’s obviously not overexerting. He’s not throwing his pitches with his usual velocity, but he can get outs with that.”

   Diaz said he got a kick out of the young hitters being a little star struck hitting off Glavine. Diaz said he was too.  

   I walked back in from the backfield just in time to see (well, hear) a home run ball crash into the window of a van parked just behind the Braves bullpen. A bunch of the guys in the Braves bullpen were turned around, surveying the damage. I tried to find out who hit it, but all I got was a funny comment that I should just say it was Heyward.

   True.

 

 

   SCHAFER  UPDATE: Speaking of prospects, Jordan Schafer is still out of action with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder. He hurt it diving for a ball in Dunedin on Saturday.

   “It hasn’t felt too good,” Schafer said, massaging his shoulder. “I tried to take bp a couple days ago and I wasn’t able to make it. But I should be OK in two or three days.”

   Bobby Cox said it would be more like three, four or five. So I’d go with three, four or five.

 

   SORIANO UPDATE: I caught a few words with the somewhat elusive set-up man Rafael Soriano this morning. He has yet to pitch in a game after dealing with a pretty serious upper respiratory infection the first week of camp. Soriano said he threw a bullpen yesterday, and it felt good. The next step is to throw batting practice on Saturday or Sunday.

   I asked how his surgically-repaired elbow felt and he said, “It feels better every day. It’s not yet 100 percent, but almost.”

 

   SCHUERHOLZ IN THE HOUSE: John Schuerholz was around the batting cage today, so I took the liberty of running Fox Sport’s Ken Rosenthal’s theory that Schuerholz might be a candidate for the Washington Nationals GM job, past him.

   You can imagine what his reaction was – don’t think this is a man who took the president’s job with the Braves to turn around and leave for another GM job and one with an organization with all the work to do that the Nationals have. But I’ll give it to you anyway.

   “Other than the fact that it had no element of fact to it, I don’t know where he came up with it,” Schuerholz said. “It was completely baseless as it relates to me. Obviously it was his judgment or guess that it might be so because I happen to have been born in Baltimore and I worked for Stan (Kasten). Those two things are true. Other than that, end of story.”

   I asked if Stan had asked for his input on whom to hire (I just wrote ‘whom’ in a blog! Hey, I got a squiggly line in my word file for being grammatically incorrect. And who likes those.) John had a good line for that one.

   “He never asked for my imput when I was working for him, why would he start now?” Schuerholz said.

 

Here we go with LINEUPS:

 

   BRAVES:

   Josh Anderson CF

   Omar Infante SS

   Garret Anderson LF

   Freddie Freeman 1B

   Jeff Francoeur DH

   Brandon Jones RF

   Martin Prado 2B

   David Ross C

   Diory Hernandez 3B

 

   Derek Lowe RHP

 

   VENEZUELA:

   Endy Chavez CF

   Melvin Mora 3B

   Bobby Abreu RF

   Miguel Cabrera 1B

   Maggio Ordonez DH

   Carlos Guillen LF

   Ramon Hernandez C

   Marco Scutaro 2B

   Cesar Izturis SS

 

   Jan Granado LHP

 

   There was some debate over who was starting for Venezuela. A couple of guys dropped out for Venezuela – like Johan Santana for one – and they’re apparently a little short on pitching and asked for some help from the Braves. The Braves offered a minor league kid Brad Nelson, a righty. At one point word was Venezuela was planning to start Nelson, which didn’t exactly fly. So it’s Granado. And now two Braves minor leaguers will pitch for Venezuela – Kevin Gunderson too, a lefty. 

   That’s all I got!

OK, I will give it a try…nscoots, please forgive me…

Here’s one for you…2000 Mike Remlinger was 10-1…as a lefty specialist out of the bullpen. Yes he was effective, we know that, but based just upon the stat alone, usually a 10-1 record would reflect a dominant starter or a closer that could not hold a lead…And as far as Corky, I get it, among other things, Bobby is a sucker for those veteran (well veterans period) good “receiving” backup catchers…But Corky had to be the worst…

Carroll Rogers

March 5th, 2009
2:20 pm

Derek Lowe gives up a leadoff walk and throws two wild pitches which cost him a run in the first inning. And after each wild pitch, he had to listen to the Venezuelan fans in the stands banging on their drums. …Almost like being in Venezuela?

He walked two in the inning, but settled in to the fourth and fifth hitters, striking out Cabrera and getting Magglio Ordonez to bounce back to the mound.

I’ll try to get Anderson after the game, but he like most veterans who don’t have to play the whole game, will probably have left. I did talk to him yesterday and will have a story posted this afternoon. Cool?

And I’m from Charlotte, NC, not some po-dunk Greenville….(smile)

As Ben posted on the last blog, you have to wonder if the Yanks will enter some serious discussions about getting Prado from the Braves.

It makes sense for the Yanks to make a deal, because the alternative is switching Tex or Nady to 3B or putting someone there (Swisher?) who’s not played the position in the big leagues.

If Wren’s in a dealing mood, the Braves could make something happen. The Rockies would want a king’s ransom for Garrett Atkins (especially from a desperate suitor), and there aren’t any free-agent 3B available. Nomar just signed with the A’s but even he no longer sees himself as an everyday player.

Would the Braves try to get Nady or Swisher from the Yanks and let Frenchy, GA, JA, Diaz and Schafer duke it out for a spot in the lineup?

Is it just me or is Rafael Soriano the biggest pus..pansy to ever look like a mean SOB? I know what you’re thinking, I’d never say that to his face. Wrong. I’d call him out. He’d be more likely to accidently bite his lip and be hospitalized than he would to kick my butt.

The guy won’t pitch because of a respiratory problem!!! And he basically had to pitch a fit last year to insist he had elbow problems (even though nobody could find anything wrong with him.) sounds like a hypocondriac to me.

Why aren’t wild pitches errors? Because errors only occur when outs are supposed to be made I think. If Lowe hadn’t thrown the wild pitches he would’ve still been in the inning. Plus HE threw the wild pitches so WP shouldn’t disqualify a run from being “earned”.

I got it, ease! I don’t know what the deal was. I had to refresh it 7 times before it showed the last few posts.

I hear you about Corky. Still would like to hear it from Bobby…. with a few more questions to get at the root of his thinking! lol

Remlinger, is a good example. Of course there are many, but he is a good one. And it should give people a little more insight to the Ohman situation.

As you pointed out, I am not against stats. Ultimately, my original post was a response to so many absolute statements about players, teams and stats themselves that were made yesterday that were based on stats that the poster seemed to consider both all encompassing and absolute.

I very much agree with both Nolie and Object of the game. On one point of Nolie’s I do not agree…. that if something can not be defined, we must ignore it. Ultimately then, if something is beyond our present understanding we should ignore it… and thus never increase our understanding. We stay in boxes… with absolutes that are not absolute. We can recognize that somethings are outside our realm of understanding and thus recognize that what we are saying based on stats is not actually absolute. If we did that, we would get along much better. Then we would recognize that we are giving different interpretations of something that is bigger than one interpretation. I have lived long enough to realize that things that may seem mutually exclusive may actually not be mutually exclusive when more information is gained. Isn’t it true that stat people are constantly coming up with new stats because the old ones don’t give enough of a true picture? So we go from BA to OBP to Slg Pct to OPS…. trying to get that illusive perfect stat to give a full picture. But the funny thing is that we find that sometimes OPS does not give us as good a picture as BA within a certain context.

Anyway, just seems that absolute statements about stats are not beneficial.

Possibly because its the pitcher’s pitching mistake – not a fielding/catching one.

3rd walk of the spring for Francoeur. Nice! Maybe he really is seeing the ball. I don’t care if he hits .240 if he can draw a walk 15% of the time. Anyway, here’s a quote from a comment on a baseball prospectus article that I found rather amusing:

“Best quote ever: Sidney Ponson on his inability to land a job – “Maybe it’s the economy. Who knows?”

Any guesses? The AIG collapse? The drought in Australia?

Any possibility that Sidney Ponson might just be a washed-up fat drunk “pitcher” who was released last year by the most pitching-starved team of all, the Rangers?

Not to get all 14-year-old boy on it, but might the answer be: “Maybe it’s because you SUCK?” ” – David Coonce

Wild pitches are not errors because an error by definition occurs on a fielding chance, i.e. an attempted assist or putout. When a pitcher throws a pitch, he cannot record a fielding chance, so a wild pitch cannot be an error. Same with a passed ball.
