Anderson’s jogging, D. Lowe is pitching and Glav’s on the horizon

Editor’s note: Due to technical difficulties, Carroll Rogers is unable to respond to requests in this blog.

   Lake Buena Vista, Fla. - Either it’s getting to be about that time in spring training, or it’s the day game after a night game thing, but it seems a little quiet around here this morning at Disney’s Wide World of Sports.

   (Here’s your clue it’s CR today and not DOB, no Dark Star reference. Can’t claim that one.)

   Early in spring when you walk by the batting cages beyond center field, they’re bustling with activity. Not this morning. All was quiet, and I was actually early. Weird concept.

   Right on top of things, my first day back on the beat in a while. I just found out the Braves didn’t have to be here until 10. Bobby Cox gave them a few hours to sleep. That’s why they love him.

   Just dropped DOB off at the airport so he can go enjoy a weekend of Rock Chalk. My Dookies are safely into the second round, and I can work distraction-free today. Staying up late to watch NCAA hoops is my only reason for being a little blurry-eyed this morning. Of course I didn’t get to watch much of the Dookies. But I’ll take that over watching Belmont take them all the way to the end of last year’s first round game.

   But my point? All seems to be calm in Braves camp, as I pick the baton back up and take it for three days from DOB for the weekend. The boys just keep winning and pitching and despite not having three big bats in the lineup in Garret Anderson, Brian McCann and Chipper Jones, the hits keep coming.

   Shoot, the spring training games are almost remote control now. I could stay back at the house and write: another win, another solid pitching performance, either Matt Diaz or Jordan Schafer got two more hits, fill in the blank.

   Today it’s Derek Lowe on the mound vs. the Marlins and we’d expect no different.

 

   A couple updates for you from around the cage….Chipper still says maybe early in the week.

   Garret Anderson gave his right calf a test with some light jogging in the outfield and all went well.

   “(Trainers) just wanted me to get the muscle fatigued and see how it responds the next day,” Anderson said. “I didn’t feel anything when I ran at all. I think we waited more than enough time to start running.”

   Anderson said it was fair to say if all continued to progress OK, he could be back in the lineup late next week. The real test he said will come baserunning.

   “Turning, pushing off, stopping, stuff like that,” Anderson said.

   But so far, so good.

  

   Jorge Campillo rejoined the Braves yesterday, and he is set to throw three innings tomorrow behind Tom Glavine. So it sounds like they’ll keep him going long, so they can be flexible with him. He could stretch out and start, or he could be the long man in the bullpen.

   The Braves are going to have some decisions to make there, and they’ve got two weeks to figure it out. But he’s a guy who gives them things to think about.

   And he’s got the right idea about it.

   “I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Campillo said. “I want to pitch good and they have a decision. Whatever they need, if they need me to start, I’ll start, if it’s in the bullpen, then bullpen. See what happens.”

 

   Checked in with Tim Hudson today, just to see where he was in his throwing program. “One day closer” is what he always says, with a twinkle in his eye, which I think is a great way to look at it. And he is. The way time flies these days, he’ll be back out there before we know it.

   But for the time being…he threw 75 pitches in a bullpen side session yesterday and said it felt really good. He threw 30 pitches at 50 percent, another 45 at 75 percent. Still working on building volume and intensity. He’s still throwing nothing but fastballs and the four-seamer at that, not the nasty sinker we all know well.

   As tempted as he is to want to mix in a sinker here and there, Hudson said this time is allowing him to clean up his mechanics, and he said mechanically he’s as sound as he’s ever been, keeping his arm angle up and staying behind the ball. His goal now is to keep those habits as he builds up his intensity and arm strength.

  

   A few sounds from the dugout today….and those hanging around to catch up with Bobby Cox. Collective Soul lead singer Ed Roland came by today with his wife and kid, and got his picture taken with Cox and visited with Glavine. Also coming over for a visit from the other dugout was Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez, who is obviously still close with Cox.

   Tommy Hanson and Kris Medlen walked past on their way onto the field, and Fredi goes: “He’s not going to make your team…I’ll take him,” looking at Hanson. Cox nodded toward Medlen and goes: “You want the little guy too.”

  Those two young guys are some charmed guys. Lots to look forward to ahead of them. That’s fun.

   As for the elder statesman, those a little closer to my age, Glavine throws tomorrow against the Mets. Stay tuned for that.

   And without further ado….

Random,
Regarding your 11:25 post. The enter comments here comes up when you haven’t actually typed anything in the posting box and you inadvertently hit the submit comment box. A more robust system would tell you that you haven’t entered anything to post and not waste posting it anyway. But I think we’ve established that the AJC didn’t exactly go top shelf when they bought/developed this product.

But it does serve the purpose. Thanks for the cover with Roach. I’ve seen those types of posts so much I just ignore. He certainly has the right moniker.

BTW- Mets sent Niese to minors today so it looke like Livan Hernandez will be the number 5.

Continuing the Chipper/Toronto issue from the previous blog, Chipper may just prefer solitude on the road. I was in Chicago last summer for the Braves games and I noticed Chipper eating dinner alone in the bar/restaurant of what I presume was the team hotel (Westin on N. Michigan Ave.)

I had no idea that we have a lot of Clemson Alumni here…I am glad that Purnell said the things he did after last nights loss. The Villanova loss last year was brutual enough. Can’t wait to see Devon Booker next year. Hopefully Olgesby will mature a little more next year too. Did you see Carolina’s recruiting class for next year? The rich get richer. They have at least three studs coming in next year.

Hey DukeBoy….Texas is going to give you Dookies all you can handle on Saturday. And if you survive that….Villanova might be there waiting. I really think Duke can beat Texas and Nova. Unfortunately, they dont match up well with Pitt.

Hope Schafer makes the big club. He’s raking, has stolen 5 bases in 5 tries and is as good at going and gettin’ ‘em as Anderson and has a better arm. More power, better OBP. I see no reason for him NOT to be kept on the big squad other than Anderson not having any options. That is no reason to send Schafer down. Keep the best player and do whatever you have to do with the other.

Does anybody see any reason not to keep the best player? Schafer appears to be the better player. Keep Blanco in case Schafer struggles and as a plug in at the other outfield spots. The Braves seriously need some power in the OF, and Schafer definitely has more power than Anderson or Gregor. His power may be gap power for the time being, but at his age he still has room to add more muscle and bulk.

Heres my problem with our OF situation right now. How do they pick a guy when all of them arent facing the best pitching most of the time in these spring training games. Yeah Schafer looks great right now, but how will he fare when Oswalt and guys like that dial it up in the Regular season. Its a whole new game in the regular season.

winterville (12:17 pm): “If you are getting ready to make a post but haven’t written anything yet, it will just say “Enter your comments here” in the comments box. My theory is that people are accidentally hitting submit before they have written anything.”

But that begs the question (my question, at least) — how can ANYone “accidentally” hit “Submit”??? But it does happen, and frequently — I’m baffled. Are some people so excited at the prospect of posting that they suffer from premature submission?

Is there some kind of shortcut key to submit a comment? I myself always point and click, which is hard to do “accidentally”, but some kind of shortcut key could be triggered accidentally. I guess.

“Tomato” based sauce is #1 – and Kansas City and Memphis bar-be-que are #1 and #2 – Texas style, when done on a large scale in a pit is also very good. The local BBQ around the small places (the one on highway 61 between Villa Rica and Dallas is the best) have great bar-be-que. It is worth the drive out there on a Sunday afternoon (they don’t open until church is out). The mustard- and vinegar-based sauces are just not to my taste, though when in the Carolinas, everything goes well with a beer.
Now you have me looking forward to getting to Turner Field and toasting Skip & Pete at their chop house and enjoying a sandwich. Though not as good as many of those small places I referenced, it will be good to at least look at the caricatures of the two legends and get this season started!

Schafer and Anderson are both either gonna bat 1 or 8 so I dont think power should be a big factor. SB and OBP should be the deciding factors on who starts. And the one who can go get the ball in the gaps the best.

Dukeboy, you are a boy. I think i was out of college there by the time you went to your first game at Cameron. And you were a toddler when Christian Laettner was winning us back-to-back titles my junior and senior year. Well hopefully we’ll get you another one that you can remember. Can’t say I think this is the year, without much in the way of inside presence, but maybe we’ll get hot and knock everything down. Got to see the ACC final in person and they look like a team that’s figuring out how to win big games. Course, not sure I could have said the same had we played Carolina with Lawson…..without him, different deal.

Good question on Reyes. I’ll have to ask. Got a lot of arms in camp now with Campillo and Vazquez back and Glavine working into the fold.

Put me down for vinegar-based.

Carroll, glad to have you on the blog-o-sphere today. though DOB always is good and his comments are informative, you add a certain atmosphere to the scene – thanks.

On center field, I am looking forward to the outfield that will have Schafer in left, Hernandez in center, and Francouer in right. That could really be 3 gold gloves right there – there will be a lot of pitchers wanting to come to Atlanta to have that kind of speed, power, and arms all in the same outfield. I am not forgetting Heyward – there will have to be a place for him – might be a trade in the air for one of the gold glovers.

Dukeboy…Duke is a lot better this season. As soon as Coach K put Elliot Williams in the starting five. However, Pitt is much better than that December game in the Garden in 2007. Blair and Young have blossomed into All American players. Duke relies way too much on the three and has no inside presence. Don’t overlook Nova. American shot lights out in the first half. Nova has a solid inside game too.

Braves RBI Leaders — Diaz (11), BJones (9), Prado (9), Freeman (7), Francoeur (7), Infante (6), Norton (6), Johnson (5). Yep, Minor Leaguers all — at least 1 or 2 out of 8. That IS the meaning of “most” in your fantasy world of imagineering, right?

Braves SB Leaders (all 5 of them) — Schafer (5), JAnderson (1), Diaz (1), Gorecki (1), Prado (1), all else (0) — great sample size you got there.

Did anyone see that David Wright played the entire last game in pain and thought he had a broken toe? Turns out it was a broken toe nail but still.

These guys are pushing themselves to play for their country. They are not ready for that!

If Wright’s toe would have been broken he could have permanently injured himself.

Such a typical complaint. Duke has no excuse not to be in the elite eight, because they are simply better than any of the teams they would face through then.

lewie,

Just wanted you to know that Coach K took “pansy crackers taking charges the whole game” 101 at West Point. Under Bobby Knight.

Cody Ross just sent a 1-2 pitch off the left center field wall for a two-run double. it’s 2-0 Marlins, all with two outs. Lowe ended it by getting Coghlan to hit a comebacker.

Carroll Rogers (1:06 pm): “”Marlins skipper Gonzalez has a rule that all his players be out in front of the dugout during the national anthem. …guess you kinda wish guys would do it on their own.”

Yeah, let’s militarize the whole dam civil society.

Carroll– Welcome back. Did you see this article in The New Republic by a Duke supporter regarding the various pitchfork attitudes out there toward the Blue Devils– http://www.tnr.com/politics/story.html?id=77950f2b-9680-4f0a-9de4-0e26a61316b4

While I am an Emory grad, I enjoy Duke Forest and have taught ESL to visiting scholars on campus, so I generally am supportive and wish the best for the team, even though I find Coach K rather detestable in his political attacks on the President. Not surprising though when you consider his Bobby Knight roots.

All sauce is optional, and should be superfluous — sauce on the side, if you please.
