Lowe to start both openers

  Lakeland, Fla. – Good morning from not-so-sunny Tiger Town and Joker Marchant Stadium, where the rain is supposed to stop in time to have the field ready for the 1:05 p.m. scheduled first pitch.
We need to get this started on time and play it relatively quickly, so I can get outta here and go watch the OU-UNC/Blake-Tyler matchup.
  Garret Anderson is in the lineup at DH, batting third (Chipper has the day off), and Casey Kotchman is in the lineup at first base, batting sixth.

   Easy drive over here this morning, with Otis cranked on a Sunday morning. The remastered “Otis Redding Sings Soul” is just about a perfect album, the second disc a beautiful stereo version (original disc was mono, and it’s disc 1 in this package; both discs have some great additional live stuff and other tunes).
   Anyway, we already had news this morning with the expected, official announcement of Derek Lowe as the starter for both opening day April 5 at Philly, and April 10 home opener vs. Washington.
  No surprise there, since the two off days in the first week allow the Braves to start Lowe on regular rest in both openers. Said last week, I figured that might be the case when I saw a Braves print ad in the AJC promoting the home opener, with only one player pictured — Lowe.

   As expected, Kenshin Kawakami is the starter pushed back a couple of days by the move. He’s scheduled to make his Braves debut with an April 11 start in the second home game against the Nationals.
Perhaps the only minor surprise when Bobby Cox announced the first-week rotation plans this morning was that Jair Jurrjens, not Javier Vazquez, would start the second game on April 7 at Philly (there are off days April 6 & 9).
   “Doesn’t matter, both are terrific,” Cox said of the Jurrjens/Vazquez order. “It’s a real good rotation.”
Lowe’s eager to get another shot at opening day after going 0-3 with an 8.44 ERA in three consecutive season-opening starts for the Dodgers during 2005-2007, including a loss against the Braves and Tim Hudson in ‘06, when Lowe gave up nine hits and seven earned in five innings for Los Dodgers at Chavez Ravine.
   “It really is a great honor to be able to pitch that [opening day] game,” Lowe said this morning. “There’s so much excitement, so much anticipation, especially the way we’ve [played this spring] and especially with it being in Philly, a rival game, and they’ll be putting up the [World Series] flag….”

 
 Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment. Schafer and The Decision pending: Plenty of you have asked, and now I’m finally ready to say, I think Jordan Schafer is going to get the center-field job over Josh Anderson and Gregor Blanco.
  Schafer has hit .396 with a .429 OBP and .585 slugging percentage in 53 at-bats, with 14 strikeouts, three walks and a team-high five stolen bases (nearly half the team’s total of 11 steals). He has a homer among seven extra-base hits.
  Anderson has hit .286 with a .298 OBP and .482 slugging percentage in 56 at-bats, with six strikeouts, one walk and two stolen bases. He has homers among his six extra-base hits.
  Blanco has options, so he could be sent down. Anderson doesn’t have options, but all indications from Braves people is that that isn’t going to be a determining factor in this decision – if Schafer makes them a better team, he’s going to be the guy.
  And I think most who have a say in this, or an opinion, agree that they look like a better team with Schafer on it.
  If that’s the way it goes, if Schafer gets through this week unscathed, and if Braves can’t get anything of value for Anderson in a trade, I’d guess – just a guess — they’d outright him to the minors if he cleared waivers.
  At this late date in spring, there might be a decent chance he could clear waivers, since a claiming team would have to keep him on its roster.
  Then again, perhaps the White Sox or another team that might not want to give up even low-level prospect value for him now, might be interested if all they have to do is claim him off waivers.
  I talked to Josh a little while yesterday, and wasn’t able to fit the quotes in the paper. So I’ll give some of it to you here now.
  Asked him if he’s felt a little better the past week or so, since he has six hits in his past 16 at-bats.
  ”I went through a stretch in the middle [of spring] where I was just trying to get comfortable, just trying to find that place where you’re hitting pitches you should be hitting,” he said. “The last couple of weeks I felt way more relaxed. It took a while for that comfort to get there. I’m getting there now.”
  Some of you might be thinking, he’s getting there, but it might be a bit late, given Schafer’s performance all spring. I asked Anderson if he’s pleased with his own spring perforamance:
  ”I’m satisfied,” he said. “This spring’s gone good. My bunting’s come a long ways; I’ve worked every day on it. I feel good on defense. My legs feel fresh. I’m pleased with the way things have gone, really.
  ”Would I like to be hitting .500? Absolutely. Everybody would like to be on fire. It takes me a couple of games, sometimes a couple of weeks, to get that feeling back. I’m indoors all winter. Once you get back in the game, it’s about getting that comfort, as well as trying to work on stuff, too.”
  Is there an uneasiness entering this last week of camp?
  ”It’s always been a competition the whole time,” he said, “so I view this week no different than what it’s been the last several weeks. I, by no means, am letting up. In my mind, I believe I can do it, and I’m just going to try to keep that mindset, think positive and try to think about the best outcome happening.”

 ♣  Feel like more music during a Sunday rain delay, so here’s the mighty Clash doing “Straight To Hell.”

“CORTEZ THE KILLER” by Neil Young

He came dancing across the water,
With his galleons and guns,
Looking for the new world,
And the palace in the sun.

On the shore lay Montezuma,
With his coca leaves and pearls,
In his halls he often wandered,
With the secrets of the worlds.

And his subjects gathered ’round him,
Like the leaves around a tree,
In their clothes of many colours,
For the angry gods to see.

And the women all were beautiful,
And the men stood straight and strong,
They offered life in sacrifice,
So that others could go on.

Hate was just a legend,
And war was never known,
The people worked together,
And they lifted many stones.

They carried them to the flatlands,
But they died along the way,
And they built up with their bare hands,
What we still can’t do today.

And I know she’s living there,
And she loves me to this day,
I still can’t remember when,
Or how I lost my way.

He came dancing across the water,
Cortez, Cortez,
What a killer.

—— BRAVES OPENING DAY VIEWING PARTY – Next Sunday ——-

Open invitation: Opening day viewing party in ATL…

Sunday, April 5th – 7:45pm

Jocks and Jills @ Galleria Mall (near junction of N.285 & I-75)

We had about a dozen folks – and a helluva lot of fun (except for the outcome of the game) – last year. Don’t really know exactly how many we’ll have this year, but probably not much more than that… so there should be plenty of room. If you would like to invite others, please feel free. You’re welcome to simply show up (you don’t have to touch base beforehand), but if you let me know how many you have coming, we’ll make sure there’s seating for you. Go Braves!

Sure, I like Matt Diaz, everyone does. What’s not to like? He’s a nice guy. But the only thing he has proven is that he is not capable of playing every day, as Bobby gave him the chance last year. Just a platoon guy, no real speed, not a defensive gem… but a nice guy, yes. Just hate to see the team TRY to get Anderson through waivers when he could upgrade the defense and speed. Who on this roster would you bring in late to pinch run to manufacture a run? We don’t have that guy, IMHO.

I commented at the end of the last blog, but I’ll respond again to Ben’s post. Ben says the AJC poll is 85% for Shafer and wants to know if Frank Wren is listening? My opinion is, that if Wren is listening and making decisions based on an AJC poll, he should be fired. No GM should be making roster decisions based on what fans want, that is silly.

My last post being said, just for the record, I want to see Shafer in CF opening day. However, if he isn’t, I’ll get over it. Just like I’ll get over Hanson not being on the opening day roster. I’m a huge fan of the Braves for 30 years now, but I realize that I’m just that, a fan, and don’t have access to the day to day happenings around the club, so I just have to trust that the people getting paid to do the jobs of the club are making the best decisions for the team.

Anderson has nobody to blmae but himself. The Braves asked Schafer and Anderson to go and play winter ball. Jordan went an played in Mexico, while Anderson refused. Buying a batting machine, paying for a speed coach or going to Winter Ball, Jordan Schafer is willing to go the extram mile to make sure he succeeds

Doc What do we need Norton for? How bout because every team needs a guy that can come off the bench late in the game to pinch hit. Norton has proved himself to be a guy that thrives in that roll. He is a huge piece to the bench, much more valuable than a guy like Anderson as a pinch hitter.

richbrave (5:26 pm): “Anyway an ANDERSON/SCHAFER platoon of sorts might work? Situational stuff depending on the opposition or the batter. Is one better than the other at certain facets of the game other than pure speed? 14 position players allows for only 11 pitchers, and with the situations there I got to believe the club intends to carry 12.

“Oops, one too many players on the 25 man. FRANCOUER still has options and time doesn’t he? Maybe a few weeks or a month in the minors to work on that stroke leaving MATT to cover right in the meantime keeps JOSH on the 25 man until something can be worked out after the start of the season. I do think if even one club is needing a CF after ML start up, they’ll grab him off waivers. Just can’t see him clearing under any circumstance. But maybe FW has a lucky face and wins when he’s in VEGAS.”

Cox must be p**ssed. He keeps waiting for the 3-run homer, and the guys just won’t cooperate.

Blawgdawg, as far as KJ goes, I suspect that if Schafer wins the CF job, the Braves will start him down in the lineup for a couple of weeks at least. I think he’ll eventually be the leadoff, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it takes a while before he gets there.

And I really can’t understand why KJ would be in the 1-hole today, with both of the CF in the lineup, if it wasn’t a serious consideration.

Doc Your missing the boat on Norton/Anderson for the bench. Do you think Anderson would be succesful getting one at bat a game in crunch situations? I doubt it, but Norton has proved to be very effective in those situations. Anderson can’t steal first, as his .290 OBP has proved this spring.

Doc, I think you are right. Braves baseball has become waiting around for someone to get the big hit… But when that hit does not come, the team loses by ONE. While Norton did get some hits off the bench, when put in the lineup everyday, he was pretty weak. This team needs to look to manufacture runs, and I truly believe Anderson gives them much more flexibility and versatility.

This is just my gut talking, but I have a feeling Kotchman is going to have a good year for the braves.

He makes contact, he has some gap power and he hits for average. He fits in the lineup really well because he puts it in play.

Again, this is just me talking, but why doesn’t frenchy get him one of those big ol’ bonds arm things and just sit on top of the plate as close as he can. Frenchy is at his best when he can open up those hips and yank the ball. He has HUGE power when he can unload.

I am really not understanding why anyone would want J Anderson on the bench over Norton. Norton is a valuable pinch hitter where Anderson would be nothing but a pinch runner and fifth outfielder. Just doesn’t make good sense.

The announcers are talking like Vasquez’s career losing record is a mystery. He has played most of his career for the Expo’s in a rough division. Mystery Solved.

I know this will get some “who cares” responses, but news out of Mariners’ camp: Brandon Morrow isn’t starting this year, he’s attempting to be the full-time closer.

Jordan looks like he is trying to pull everything. He strikes out a lot.

Are you sure about that PWHjort. I drafted him with my last pick yesterday in a draft. I am curious as to what his role will be.

Only people like Ken Griffey Jr care about what the blogs say. And that’s why I’m glad we have GA instead.
