MetsFanInAtlanta-You should be very happy that Spring Training doesn’t count, when your “AA” pitcher Maine gives up five runs in four innings to our “AA-AAA” lineup.
March 21st, 20094:33 pm
I say again………….Francoeur haters are VERY “quiet” lately!!!
March 21st, 20094:34 pm
Oh, also mets fan in atlanta, bet you didn’t peek your little head in on this blog the last two Septembers now did you. It’s not us Braves fan’s fault that you root for a team of CHOKERS.
THE BEAR Illegitimi non carborundum
March 21st, 20094:35 pm
I have heard very little complaining about home runs lately. Now we all see it is entirely possible to win and while doing it, score a ton of runs with singles, doubles and a few triples. Oh yeah, one more thing. Atlanta has 7 stolen bases and have not been thrown out even one time this ST.
March 21st, 20094:41 pm
Are there really that many Frenchy haters or are there just alot of people who were “put-out” by his sorry play last year? I am one of those who were miffed at his performance last year but I sincerely hope he turns things around this year. I don’t know of any true Braves fan who wants players to fail!
March 21st, 20094:43 pm
Let me see if I can remember…just what is it that the Mets have won lately? Last year? The year before? Other than ‘The Big Choke’ award, nothin’. OK, so you finished ahead of us, but that doesn’t give you braggin’ rights over the team that finished ahead of everybody in the Division for a decade and a half. Trust me. When the Braves win, we show up. By the way, how’s it gonna feel with one of those Robber Barron’s name on your new playing field…I know I don’t appreciate the fact that our tax dollars have gone into those naming rights.
MOnty-No, there are many Frenchy haters. It goes way beyond his poor performance last season. There are quite a few that felt his two 100 RBI seasons were sub par as well. Many here believe that RBI count for little and his low OBP defines him as a player.
March 21st, 20094:44 pm
McCann has thinned enough to double his triple output this year
I’d rather that he tripled his doubles output than doubled his triples output
March 21st, 20094:46 pm
WOW – today is the day I’ve been waiting for all off season – Tommy finally pitching again! I was so psyched…and he didn’t disappoint either (other than the pop up bunt)…
Too bad there isn’t a photo link – I have awesome photos from the last 2 1/2 weeks – sorry McFann – nothing of Mac of course…
And Mets Fan in Atlanta — sounds like a bunch of sour grapes to me — if the Mess had a record like the Braves, you’d be ready to celebrate a WS. Granted they have a couple of big guns in the WBC, but sorry, they are still the NY Mess….
March 21st, 20094:48 pm
You stole McCann? That’s great–yer lucky! I haven’t watched him at all this Spring (because they only show the WBC on ESPN “Deportes” or whatever it is–hey, us English speaking people like baseball, too, ya know! What are they showing on the real ESPN–basketball??)…uh…hmm…kinda went off on a tangent there, sorry…where was I…?
Oh yeah: I haven’t seen him at all this Spring–for reason stated above–but I’m sure he’ll give us those triples. Hmm…but what’s better: two triples or 30 homers? I’ll take 2 triples and 25 homers, no questions asked.
And I’m looking to see 40+ doubles again this year. Yep, ya might say I have high expectations, but he cann do it–he’s shown he cann do it. Of course, this is provided he stays healthy.
And as long as Team USA is in the semi-finals, I hope they take it to the finals. Heck, they’re playing Japan tomorrow–they gotta beat Japan! Course, the way it’s been going, tomorrow’s McCann’s turn to play, which means Iannetta will start if they make it to the finals…but that’s OK. Chris hasn’t done to bad in this thing.
March 21st, 20094:50 pm
Nolie I’d rather that he tripled his doubles output than doubled his triples output
Haha, me, too…126 doubles! Let’s see anyone break that record!!
March 21st, 20094:52 pm
You haven’t been reading much here lately then. Believe it or not there are some people here hoping he fails. Yes, they call themselves Braves “FANS” also. Even people trying to turn back to back 100RBI seasons into a negative. Most of the time I find it funny.
March 21st, 20094:56 pm
Image Shack is a good website for uploading photos. I’ve used it a couple times. It’s pretty easy to use–just click on my link (I hope it works), then click the “Browse” button on the home page and select your photo from wherever it is on your computer. After that, click the “start upload” button.
The “start upload” button used to say “host it”, and that worked better…not sure why they changed it. But it still works fine.
Once you’ve got the photo uploaded, just copy and paste it’s address into the comments box here.
March 21st, 20094:57 pm
I’m not sure when I would draft Brian McCann. I have a draft tonight, a draft tomorrow, and a draft on Monday (my own league).
I need to get some more people in my league.
March 21st, 20094:58 pm
KJ, BMac, and Kotchman all hit lefties just as well or better than righties, PWH
depends on your definition of “as well or better” I guess
they all do hit lefties pretty well for LHers, but they all hit them with less power than against RHers.. Still would not hurt to develop or acquire an accomplished RH hitter
March 21st, 20095:31 pm
Thanks…..I’ll have to wait until I’m home next week. Dial up here in the ST house is too slow…I’ll download and post the link next week. I counted at least 120 photos people may be interested in (not counting all the solo photos of my fave coach LOL)….
March 21st, 20095:34 pm
You’re welcome! Can’t wait to see the photos! 120? Wow!
(not counting all the solo photos of my fave coach LOL)
Haha…been there. We went to a game last September and Sammons caught, so I sat through a lot of the game taking pictures of the dugout…
Im not a JF hater, Im one of the guys that have criticized him hard, just a little more than KJ. But Im not quite. I have been saying Im glad he has been doing his work lately. And I hope is not only a ST thing.
mets fan in atlanta
March 21st, 20095:48 pm
Actually, it must have been you who wasn’t here the last two septembers, cause yeah, i was. And my point was, John Maine threw to a major league lineup today (minus Freeman). And that’s the same lineup Bobby Cox has been putting out there every day the last two weeks. No, i don’t get excited when the Mets have good spring training records. I learned about that back in the early 90’s.
Maybe you guys and the Royals fans (hell the Rangers are in third place in Arizona) can sit back in a couple weeks when the games actually count and reminisce about how many games over .500 each of you were in Spring Training. Think about the “good ole days”.
March 21st, 20095:52 pm
And my point was, John Maine threw to a major league lineup today (minus Freeman).
Minus the team’s two best hitters, of course. Is there something that makes you the addition of those two to the lineup will somehow make the team worse?

March 21st, 20095:57 pm
Couple Glavine quotes for you:
Glavine on his velocity today/radar gun.
“Yeah, I check it out every once in a while,” Glavine said. “Obviously the first couple pitches I threw I was curious what it was. Every once in a while a ball comes out better than some other ones, I’m curious what it is. I saw 80 a couple times, maybe an 81. To me that’s a good sign because at least I’m going in the right direction and I’m not going to sit here and tell you that I feel 100 percent physically the way I want to feel, but I know that I’m slowly getting there. For me to be able to get to that point knowing I’m not where I want to be yet is a good sign.”
more on velocity:
“If I can get somewhere in that 83-85 range comfortably, and an occasionally get above that on a four-seam fastball, then that would be great,” Glavine said. “Right now it’s kinda taking my four seam fastball to get to 80, which that’s not exactly where I want to be but I’m confident it’s going to come.”
On considering retirement if this doesn’t come around:
“It’s not consuming me,” Glavine said. “It’s not like I’m going out on the mound, saying hey, this could be my last game, or any pitch I throw. It could always be that way. For 20 years I could have thrown my last pitch at any time. In my mind it’s more about just feeling like each day or each start I feel a little bit better physically, I feel a little bit more arm strength coming and It’s just something I have to be patient with. Yeah, I would have loved to have come down here and not had any issues whatsoever and felt like I could just let it rip and go get ‘em but I don’t know that I’ve ever had a spring like that before. And I don’t know if I could have expected that after surgery.
“I’ve got another month now before the season starts for me,” Glavine said. “I’m trying to approach this like I would any other spring. Obviously it’s different in that I was 29, 30 years old and I was dealing with some things I wouldn’t even contemplate for a second, well I’m not sure I want to deal with this, I’m going to retire. At this stage of the game, yeah, that’s always a possibility. Because I’ll be the first to tell you. If I don’t feel like I can physically go out there and do what I want to do then it’s not worth me going out there and doing it. Not worth it for me or for these guys. But I’m a long way from getting there, based on the slow progressions I’ve made, based on the little conversations I have with the doctors and what not. I’m confident that in time I’m going to get there. But I have to be patient and take my time.”
March 21st, 20095:58 pm
Dang, that was a long post. Sorry bout that.
Off for a run and to watch the Dookies. Sounds like the Met invasion is keeping you busy!
March 21st, 20096:01 pm
JF is the key to the Braves season. To many of you that’s a scary thought, but it’s the truth. I’ll be surprised if Chipper plays in 120 games.
March 21st, 20096:04 pm
You are right, JF, as I said before, is the difference between a good team and a great one right now. But I would say that in order to say that, Chipper has to play at least 125 games.
March 21st, 20096:11 pm
Mets Fan in A. — You miss the point about the enthusiasm here on the ol’ blog. Braves fans are excited because of the level of play of the starters and position players. I agree, the won-loss record doesn’t mean much. However, from all reports (confirmed by stats) virtually every one of these guys is performing very well. And considering the ages of these guys, the future (which begins in 2 weeks) is looking mighty good.
Braves fans have enjoyed 14 winning years and lately, 3 down years. Now, it looks very much like the pendulum is swinging back to the winning side for an extended period. Can’t help but be enthused.
March 21st, 20096:15 pm
And my point was, John Maine threw to a major league lineup today (minus Freeman).MFIA
You’re absolutely right except for the center fielder and left fielder who will likely start the season in the minors and the backup catcher and third baseman. So five of the eight starters may be ML quality players but not starters for us guys. I don’t think anyone here is predicting the Braves will win 128 games this year (which is what the ST winning % would project). O.K. maybe a few of us do, but we’ve played all spring without our 3 best hitters and a lot of games without our regular first baseman, as have the Mets, but our backups and minor leaguers have looked a little better, IMO.
March 21st, 20096:17 pm
Mets fan in atl
Don’t worry yourself Maine will come around,remember those rose colored glasses you mentioned.
Get off the high horse these are Braves fans and if they are winning two weeks into the season no one will care about your apology…
Gil In Mechanicsville
March 21st, 20096:19 pm
Melvin Nieves, Tony Torasco, Pat Rocket.. All names of can’t miss players who were either traded and didn’t blossom or wasn’t traded and fell flat… Folks, enjoy the good spring the Braves are having but always keep in mind most players are neither as good nor as bad as they might first appear.
Still a long ways off from June 1st, the traditional time for a team to take stock of it’s needs…
Our spring training run differential is very good. That’s what I’m excited about.
March 21st, 20096:25 pm
Has Josh Anderson bulked up or something? Working on a new swing? Why’s he hit homers in back to back games (after hitting what…3 last year?)
Seeing “J. Anderson homers to right field” doesn’t always make me happy. I wanna see hits, walks, SBs, triples. But not homers. I remember when Furcal went through spells of trying to be a power hitter and it didn’t turn out good.
March 21st, 20096:26 pm
“And my point was, John Maine threw to a major league lineup today (minus Freeman).”
So? Isn’t he a major league pitcher? Maybe if he went up against high schoolers he would’ve had a better outing (probably not)
And besides, the Braves only had three starters in the lineup today (Johnson, Francouer and Escobar) No Chipper, McCann, Diaz, G.Anderson, or Kotchman. The rest were bench players and/or minor league. John Maine just sucks.
Yup, good point, PWHjort.
March 21st, 20096:29 pm
Our spring training run differential is very good. That’s what I’m excited about.
Low threshold, I’m guessing, LOL. Ironic to see the usual good post from Gil, followed immediately by that one. Why would run differential in ST have any more relevance than any other stat in ST? Which is to say, little? The team has won a buncha games this spring, so it follows that their differential would also be good. Unfortunately, neither circumstance has much value in forecasting how real games will go.
But, good is better than bad, I’ll give you that!
March 21st, 20096:31 pm
If this team doesn’t win the World Series, I’ll be disappointed.
Don’t we already have the t-shirts, hats, etc printed…?
March 21st, 20096:34 pm
Just checked the line up to confirm what Muts fan said – starters today included Ross as C, Infante 3B, Freeman 1B, B Jones LF, J Schafer CF. This makes 5 of the 8 position players not starters on opening day (I know Schafer might start, but he has no major league experience yet). So although it was not all our minor leaguers, the only everyday starters were Johnson, Frenchy and Escobar. The Mets only had one real starter in Church, but only two that had no experience in the majors, so their team was also made up of mainly back-up players.
I bet the Braves’ Pythagenport record is about where it should be. Greatest team ever, no doubt.
March 21st, 20096:36 pm
I’ve got the T-shirts ready.
Even printed some up with 2009 World Series MVP Jeff Francoeur’s mug. The DVD’s coming out next week. I accept PayPal.
March 21st, 20096:39 pm
ease, if you read the blog, the rings are sized, and players are already spending the incentive money for ROY, MVP, the Cy, and All-Star berths, LOL. Eight GG and nine Silver Sluggers, at least.
Plus, David Wright will demand to be traded to the Braves, so he can join a team worthy of himself.
March 21st, 20096:47 pm
I heard that most of the major stars have already demanded trades to the Braves. Colorado and Pittsburgh have already forfeited their seasons in fear of facing the Braves.
phishing with the braves
March 21st, 20096:55 pm
in response to mets fan in atlanta,
i just pray that no one (braves fans) on this board goes over to mets’ boards and post idiotic comments like his…because, quite frankly, you would be embarrassing the braves fan base like that jack**s has done to his fan base.
March 21st, 20097:00 pm
Does that mean that Peavy will also want to play here too?
March 21st, 20097:02 pm
who has the time to go over to Mets blogs? Speaking of, does anyone know how old Anders is? I know that you aren’t supposed to ask a woman about her age…but he sounds like a kid brother sometimes….
March 21st, 20097:08 pm
David Wright doesn’t demand to be traded to a team worthy of himself. Teams worthy of David Wright demand to be traded to him.
March 21st, 20097:12 pm
ease – Peavy will play here, but with CC, Lincecum, and Santana all coming over, he might start the year in AAA.
March 21st, 20097:14 pm
“And my point was, John Maine threw to a major league lineup today”
Uh, we had THREE lineup regulars in there today… Escobar, Johnson and Francoeur. Everyone else were either bench players or will start the year in A ball. And Maine gave up 5 runs to them in 4 innings. Why not just admit that Maine sucked today? Just think how much more damage he would have had to endure if McCann, Chipper, G.Anderson and Kotchman were also in there today? You had two line up regulars (Murphy and Church) and we had 3. Huge difference there……
March 21st, 20097:19 pm
spotts – Would we be giving up any prospects?
March 21st, 20097:21 pm
A great winning record in Spring Training may not mean much in terms of reality, but think of all the b!tching and prophesies of impending and immortal doom etc. that would be going on if the record were reversed-whether or not Spring Training records mean anything.
March 21st, 20097:24 pm
ya, it’s not worth much. Better than W% though. Any trade predictions in the next 3 weeks?
March 21st, 20097:28 pm
monty 4:41 – That’s me. Happy to see him turn around, hope he keeps his attitude in check.
March 21st, 20097:31 pm
Man, did LSU just stop playing?
March 21st, 20097:36 pm
I agree……..I wonder what does Peavy thinks of our Braves now.
March 21st, 20097:38 pm
You aren’t kidding…I checked the score like 5 minutes ago and UNC was only up by about 4
March 21st, 20097:41 pm
It’d be interesting to know the conversations between Peavy and Chipper during Chipper’s stay in the wBc. I would imagine Chipper knows some things that he is not telling (concerning Peavy’s thoughts past and present about the Braves).
March 21st, 20097:47 pm
I’d love to see Jake Peavy come to the Braves. I love his makeup.
March 21st, 20097:52 pm
I’d love to see Jake Peavy come to the Braves. I love his makeup. WILLIAM
Is it his blush, eyeliner or mascara that you like best? What shade is that anyway?
March 21st, 20098:03 pm
Oh, I thought that maybe he had come out with his own makeup line. Perfection by Peavy.
March 21st, 20098:06 pm
On the other hand, he must use some kind of vanishing cream when he wants to hide behind his agent when maybe his voice should be heard.
March 21st, 20098:07 pm
PTBNL – definitely not a best seller!
Anybody else see the irony of Peavy throwing to B-Mac in the WBC?
March 21st, 20098:11 pm
Carroll, I love you – please, PLEASE stop spelling Dukies that way. Go Braves.
March 21st, 20098:12 pm
What I would love to see is Peavy watching the Braves win some playoff games on TV at home.
March 21st, 20098:15 pm
LOL I agree, ease19.
Frank from KS
Ya know, you JUST better get off your high horse about your Mutts who (if memory serves) CHOKED a 7 game lead with…..what 18 games left in 06 or 07 (can’t remember which) and choked again LAST season.
I loved it when the Muts choked the 7 game lead and then the Phils didn’t just get beat……they got SWEPT. SWEPT by the Rocks in the playoffs.
I said…”Yes, there is a God”
March 21st, 20098:18 pm
After blistering my face sans hat and sunblock as my youngest grandson played in his first Junior High game, I listened to XM 177 and caught a little of the MURPH 7 through 9. Pretty smooth. I like.

OMG, another drool-faced METS clown. Jeeze, one’s enough. At least ANDERS has some solid takes on things BRAVES.
March 21st, 20098:30 pm
if a trade were to be made id want either halladay , holliday , or berkman, why bother with any others. lol
Mets Fan in Atlanta…hmmmmisn’t that an oxymoron? Or how about a donkey mates with a female horse and is called a mule right? And a mule only has 62 chromosomes versus 64 for a horse. the mule is inferior to a horse so can we infer that…
Mets Fan In Atlanta=Mule?
I think it was you who named 1 or 2 of the greatest players from some of the organizations..(Braves, Toronto, Milwaukee, Kansas City, etc) from the last blog(s).
Growing up here in Kansas, I was a HUGE Royals fan but lost interest in them after Brett retired (not because of the losing). Even after he retired, I still followed them(and still do to this day) just not as much as I did before. Ya mentioned George Brett as the top KC player which I don’t disagree with. I just want to add…Frank White to that list. One hell of a 2nd baseman in the AL during his run with the Royals.
March 21st, 20098:32 pm
I must correct my earlier statement PTBNL, since you brought up vanishing cream…I think it would indeed be a best seller…based on how effective it was! Go Cubs Go…well maybe not…lol.
March 21st, 20098:45 pm
June 1, the tradional time for a team to take stock of it’s needs
Gil, that’s why I wouldn’t mind Shafer and Hanson beginning the season in AAA. If we can do well without those guys and bring them up after the break, they could miss that long road trips of 6/12 to 6/21 and 7/3 to 7/12. It would suit me just fine if the plan was for them to come in fresh for the 2nd half.
March 21st, 20099:03 pm
I see some are putting a lot of stock in the Spring Training numbers while a few have maintained a level of sensibility. So let’s see what happens when not only Santana pitches but the Delgado and Beltran are reinserted into the spring lineup tomorrow. Those two guys had an incredible WBC and are already playing at high intensity levels as is Wright, Putz, McCann, Velázquez, K-Rod and a few other Mets players (all except that guy Chumper). Not sure if Reyes and Castillo will be in that lineup tomorrow but if they are you will see a more balanced MLB team.
Glavine pitching 3 scoreless innings was not impressive to me but I’m sure it was to you. I’m hoping he makes the team so Hanson’s much needed experience for MLB pitching will be delayed. In the meantime Glavine will stink it up once the season starts. I predict 1 good start out of every three until he gets the hook for good or succumbs to injury. Real Mets fans are always and still excited, but the reality of the past two years lets you know to stay proud and loud but keep it low until the season actually begins. Mets fans are concerned with Maine obviously, and who is going to make the bench, and the final bullpen spots. All starting positions have been filled so the Mets have been tinkering instead of playing to win. Enjoy the wonderful spring training record. Once the season starts and the spark plugs head to AAA and the DL bound guys start the season, reality will set in. Then the problem will being finding the right AAA guys to call up to mesh with the rest of the big league that are still standing. Yeah, I can agree the brave’s future looks bright but I don’t see it taking complete form or shape until 2011.
On a side note Hudson rehab is going amazingly smooth so I will stay aware that he may be back sooner thatn later but the same can be said for Wagner.
Wagner said he hopes to be back pitching in August. He’s been throwing up to 100 feet and claimed to be at least a month ahead of schedule.
“They just made me take two weeks off because I was so far ahead,” Wagner said. “They wanted to let time catch up with me.”
Wagner plans to head to Florida in June for what he’s told will be his spring training.
March 21st, 20099:06 pm
NCGary — You’re right about that. Braves don’t need any lateral moves. Unless there is a serious offensive force available that they can afford, I hope the stand pat. On second thought, if they could trade for a top pitching prospect, you can’t have too much pitching.
March 21st, 20099:17 pm
Regarding the trade front: Bennett or Acosta might be gone soon. Acosta’s value might be slipping based on his giving up homers and hits. Campillo has greater value but he can go to Gwinnett if not needed now. Carlyle is a wildcard. If Medlen is coming up north with the big team he’ll probably take up the Acosta slot.

Rock on….oh the visual
March 21st, 20099:32 pm
did you guys really read all of Metro’s post? I never read it when you guys make these huge posts.
March 21st, 20099:35 pm
Wren’s in a very good position here. Only meaningful guy he might “need” to trade is Josh (and that’s assuming Schafer starts the year in Atlanta… if not, there’s really no one out of options that we need to move.) And, there’s no huge hole on the major league roster he needs to fill. It’s a good opportunity to maybe slick someone out of a very good prospect, or to just stand pat if no such deal comes along.
March 21st, 20099:37 pm
Thank you ease19, a mule should go along well with a team led by a Donkey.

Imageshack.us is a good image host for one or two pictures, as McFann suggested, but if you have 120 photos, you may want to try using Photobucket to store your photos. After signing up for a free account, you can upload more than one photo at a time and it takes less time doing so than if you were to do them one by one. You can also sort your photos in different albums and such, too, which makes things a lot easier in the long run.

March 21st, 200910:18 pm
You Mets fans are a little sad. You think that Braves fans getting excited over the success of our team this spring training is not good, yet if you were in the same position you would be just as optimistic. I doubt many people are taking the spring training record seriously but it does feel good when you see how well the guys are doing. I mean would you rather them be bad. You warn against Glavine probably being good maybe 1 in 3 games, but what Livan will be good 3 out of 3 right. Yeah we have a couple of guys who tend to get injured but so do you guys. I believe that is where the difference between our clubs become clear. The Braves have depth at almost all positions and pitching. You’re wondering about your bench while ours is set. The young talent is performing well which bodes well for us. How are your minor league kids doing?
Nice to know Santana is not hurt because we all know your season would be lost without him. Who could you replace the guy with, no one. That’s a problem we don’t have to worry about. We don’t have that dominant Ace like hime but once again we have a lot of quality arms and hopefully a future ace in the making. Plus we have a lot of just up and coming good young players like Heyward and Freeman. If you had the prospects we had and they were performing the way ours are you would be excited about spring training too. I know you feel confident in your team regardless of how they perform in spring training which is cool. Names like Delgado, Reyes, Beltran, and Wright would make anyone feel good about their lineup and team. Just remember those have been the big names for a while and what exactly have they done for you?

BILLY’s a GREAT reliefer and VIRGINIAN, but his best days are behind him. That’s why you stocked up the bull-pen in QUEENS this off-season.

Yeah, I switched back to B-Ball after Silva surrendered the 2-run bomb. Silva looks even more lost than he did last season. What a waster of $44 million by the Mariners.

METS BLOG FANS:
SANTANA is damaged goods, and the first cracks are beginning to show. You’ll see what I mean in the latter part of this year.

Anyone see the end to the Gonzaga Western KY game? WOW!
Whoa – Zags!
although I have to add that was some seriously crappy defense by Western Kentucky there…
I almost picked WKU to upset Gonzaga, and I was about to shoot myself if they pulled that off.

I hope the Braves don’t pursue Peavy. He obviously didn’t want to be with the Braves the first time around and he hasn’t pitched well yet this season. I hope he spends the season with the Padres… should be enjoyable for him. If they win more than 60 games I’ld be surprised. Also, I hope the Braves keep the depth on their bench, especially Prado and Infante. I would rather see K. Johnson go than Prado. Prado has played very well this spring and has a really bright future. Hopefully KJ can have a good year. If the Braves can trade Jo Jo, Morton, or Carlyle to add someone that could make an impact this season I think they should do it. I’m not sure it would be the right decision to make a trade now though.

ca – only thing WKU could’ve donen to make that layup any easier was set up a ladder
