Soriano: I’ll be ready

 

   Orlandisnopolis, Fla. – It can be taken as a good sign, a good start to the day, when Braves reliever Rafael Soriano hangs up his cell phone and signals to waiting reporters to come over, then politely answers their questions.
  So much for surly or unapproachable. He was quite pleasant today, and said his strained side feels a lot better and that he should be back pitching in a day or two. Said he actually told the trainers yesterday that he could throw today, but that they told him to wait and not push this thing.

Soriano

Soriano

  Most importantly: Can he, will he, be ready for the start of the season? “Yeah, yeah, couple more days I think I’m going to be ready to throw,” he said, which I took as his confirming he believes he will be ready.
   To say that he’s important is like saying the Braves have struggled to keep a full-time, healthy closer in recent years. An understatement.
  Not that he’s expected to fill that role. Not after he had it entering last season and then wasn’t able to pitch for any significant stretch of games without his elbow barking and landing him back on the DL. But he’d still be a solid backup option, don’t you think?
   Soriano had surgery with Dr. James Andrews on Aug. 28, to transpose (move) the nerve that was rubbing against the bone that protrudes on the inside of the elbow. Andrews also removed a bone spur during that procedure. Those problems would explain why Soriano felt recurring pain during the season, and those are issues that wouldn’t necessarily (and didn’t) show up on an MRI.
  He had two MRIs that were “clean” before Andrews recommended exploratory surgery to determine the source of his pain. Andrews said before the surgery that if they determined the nerve needed to be transposed, they’d go ahead and do it during that arthroscopic surgery, and that’s what they did.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
   Soriano rested most of the winter, then showed up to spring training and barely threw off a mound in the first few weeks, which we weren’t quite sure whether the delay was cautionary as he came back from the elbow surgery, or more for the mysterious upper-respiratory infection or virus that he complained about at the beginning of camp, which has lingered for more than a month.
   But I can report that today, he seemed to sound both normal (although he talks so deep and low, so it’s tough to gauge “normal”) and relatively upbeat (he’s not one to be exude bubbly enthusiasm, you might have heard).
  So with a week to go before the Braves take this production north, they are hopeful that Soriano will be ready. Because they need him. With the question marks that go with their lefty relievers, and with Mike Gonzalez still working to get back to his old, dominant form and Peter Moylan probably not ready to go back-to-back days at the outset … well, like I said, the Braves need Soriano.

 

 ♦ McCann’s place among hitters: Writing a story today on McCann, just something about where teammates and others believe he ranks among catchers, what might be in store this season (Kelly Johnson and others think Mac’s ready to take it to another level), and how Mac plans to maintain his slimmer physique during the season (it ain’t always easy eating right on the road).
   Teammates have asked McCann about how such a proficient major league hitter had just a .275 career average with 36 homers in more than 1,000 at-bats during his minor league career, and Mac’s answer is: Chipper. Yes, he credits Chipper Jones for instilling the importance of studying pitchers and especially going to the plate with a gameplan and staying in that plan.
   By the way, here’s what Terry Pendleton said when I asked him how good a hitter McCann can be: “A .330 one, with 25, 30 homers. He can hit for that average and still hit for power. I don’t want to put that kind of heat on him, but I think he’s capable of doing that. The kid can hit.”

 ♦ Other medical updates: For those who might possibly be wondering why lefty Jeff Ridgway hasn’t been mentioned as a bullpen option recently, he’s had inflammation in his pitching elbow and hasn’t picked up a ball in several weeks. He hopes to begin a throwing program soon, and is frustrated that he hasn’t been healthy enough to compete for a spot…. Casey Kotchman was still sick and out of the lineup again today, and Bobby Cox said the first baseman was headed to the hospital to get checked out, since his flu-like symptoms have lasted more than a week. He had a brief period a few days ago when he felt better, only to have his condition worsen again…. LF Garret Anderson (calf strain) is now expected to make his Grapefruit League debut on Sunday instead of Saturday. Cox said a few days ago that they were aiming for Saturday, but that was pushed back a day, though the manager said there was no setback or anything….

 ♦ Speaking of unhealthy…. Now, I’m a fan of a good, greasy burger every once in a while. But seriously, does anyone, under any circumstances, ever need to eat a monstrosity such as this 4,800-calorie, cardiac-arrest concoction they plan to serve this season at West Michigan Whitecaps minor league games? This thing makes the famous Ghetto Burger at Ann’s Snack Shack in Atlanta seem like a freakin’ Kristal slider by comparison.

 

I don't think so

Not in here, Tyler

 We wait anxiously: Kansas vs. Michigan State tonight, and I’ll admit to being a bit nervous. My young Jayhawks can beat Smoltz’s Spartans, but will have to play very well to get it done. Damn, still got 9-1/2 hours till tipoff…. After the Asian Invasion Monday (Boston’s Daisuke “Dice-K” Matsuzaka vs. Kenshin Kawakami at Dark Star), it’ll be an Atlanta invasion at The Social in downtown Orlando, where ATL bands Black Lips and Gentlemen Jesse are performing. Planning to attend, if we’re not worn out from a day of fighting for coffee and elbow room in filled-to-capacity pressbox at the all-Japanese pitching matchup.

 

  Statistically speaking: Derek Lowe leads the NL with 24 strikeouts entering today’s games, while Jordan Schafer was fifth with a .383 average and tied for seventh with five stolen bases…. In the Grapefruit League (Florida spring training teams), Brandon Jones (.356) and Matt Diaz (.354) also ranked among batting leaders, while Diaz (.604) was fourth in slugging percentage, and Schafer (.420) was seventh in OBP.

Tejada gets probation for misleading Congress.

And is there any way to sentence members of Congress (members of BOTH parties) to probation for criminal mismanagement of the country? The Whitehouse as well. Bush and so far, Obama too. With a few exceptions, the whole lot of them are botch artists.

Is it safe to say they have better things to worry about right now? Forget about baseball and do job you were elected to do!

I am getting a little sick of Soriano. It is always something. The Braves have had some pretty bad luck with back-end relievers. They have brought in some excellent arms, but something always seems to go wrong, usually major injury.

>I’m looking at getting the mlb.tv package. I know a bunch of folks on here have been using it this spring. How is the 400k feed?

The 400K feed sucks. (I watch it in a small window because the full screen is unacceptable.) Once the regular season starts, you choose from something like 400, 800, 1.1, 2, 3 Megs. (I was perfectly happy last year with the 1.1 feed. The higher ones are new this year.)

How much of the Glavine signing do you think was backlash from the Smoltz deal, and not wanting to let both of them go? Because despite starting his arbitration clock early, it sure seems like Hanson would have made for a better fifth starter.

Uh oh. McCann just got punked by Verlander. My faith is shattered. Let’s see what Francoeur will do. A groundout. He obviously has no chance this year. Infante flies out to Ordonez.

keylargo, you’re right. Glavine doesn’t look like a 25-year-old, but he doesn’t have near the paunch he had last year.

Hey, Jamie Moyer won 16 games last year with an 81-mph fastball (per fangraphs).

Glavine has given up a couple of solid singles (though nothing really threatening), but 3 IP, 2K’s, 2 hits, 0 walks, is a pretty good beginning. His change has been effective and nobody has (so far) really ripped anything off him. He looks pretty good to me.

The Tigers’ 3-4-5 up in the 4th, so it’ll be interesting to see how Tommy can handle them 2nd time around.

Glavine up in a bunting situation and puts down a nice bunt. Tom looks like a high school P.E. coach. He’s got that wiry, sunburnt leather skin thing going on. Blanco is up. He’s got a stupid beard. He should be embarrassed. Josh Anderson is dancing around at second as if to say, “Don’t cut me, Bobby.” Joe Simpson says Blanco’s OBP might go up if he cuts down on strikeouts. Verlander walks Blanco. I guess Blanco could walk more. That would also increase his OBP. Kelly Johnson fails us all by popping out to shallow right.

Hey DOB,

I’ve always been a fan of the blog because of the baseball news, but I have recently started taking you up on some of your music recommendations. I know you are a big Tom Waits fan and I was wondering if you could recommend to me a couple of his CD’s. I have been listening to the Frank’s Wild Years album and while I find some of the songs really odd I like the majority of the songs of the album.

They’re talking to Diaz. He’s in good shape. Very skinny. Probably stopped juicing. Someone called me while the interview was going on. Glavine is pitching well. Girlfriend won’t get off phone. Commercials are on. Ordering World Series tickets online.
