Fantasy Analysis
This is real significant news, especially if you have drafted already and have DL spots in your league. Hudson will be able to be placed on the DL lists in Fantasy, freeing up a roster spot for another flier in deeper formats. Hudson is targeting an Aug. 1 return and all signs point to him being able to contribute in the season’s final two months.

Just thinking hypothetically tonight. If the Fish sweep the Pirates and take 2/3 from Phils/Mets (which seems possible, they will walk outta april, what? 18-3.

Does that give them the strangle-hold on the division. I mean they could play .500 ball the rest of the year and win 85 games, right? What is it going to take to win the NL East? Not much more than .500 I think.

KC-” I might be the only person here, that had ZERO problem with Ozzie Guillen calling out Vazquez last year. Dude said what was on his mind, and didn’t apologize for it. Why sugar coat stuff. These guys are millionaires that SHOULD have to answer to the media and face the music when they stink.”

My problem is the only reason Vazquez was stinking at the end of last year is because Ozzie was throwing him on 3 days rest. It was Ozzies fault and he completely blamed Vazquez.

Choppinmama: G. Anderson is a pleasant enough guy, doesn’t decline to be interviewed, etc. He just doesn’t say a lot, other than the one conversation I had with him in spring training, where he talked about how someone at some point with the Angels had told a writer that he (Garret) doesn’t need many ABs to get ready (Garret had never said that, or actually tested the theory) and when he talked a little about Jason Heyward and his initial impressions of the big prospect.

Otherwise, he answers your questions in relatively few words, but not with any sort of reluctance or poor attitude or whatever. He’s just a quiet, introspective sort of guy who doesn’t seem to be into talking much to reporters or others he’s not known for a long time.

Have you always covered baseball primarily? Did you ever cover any sports like basketball or football or was it always baseball? I know you covered the Marlins but did you cover anything before that? How did you get in to covering baseball teams? Sorry if that’s a lot of questions or intruding but I was just curious about it. Thanks in advance.

Apparently opposing offenses have similar feelings of new Yankee Stadium. The Indians got another one today, making 18 in the first four games there.

Winterville: I covered Don Shula’s (and Dan Marino’s) Dolphins for two years — back then, we had two writers covering them full-time, and I was No. 2 behind our main beat guy — before moving to Marlins beat in 1995.

Before the Dolphins, I covered Univ. of Miami football (and some baseball and basketball) for a couple of years, and before that, a whole lot of high school sports in Broward and Palm Beach counties, and other assorted stuff ranging from a few Miami Grand Prix races, to random golf tournaments, to recreational waterskiing (we had these local tabs inserted in the paper, which focused on events like that going on in each section of Broward and P.B. counties)

Back in college, I covered KU sports in my senior year for the Kansas City Star and Kansas City Times (the Times was the morning paper, Star the afternoon paper — yes, it was a long time ago).

TOMMY HANSON NEEDS TO BE IN ATLANTA

April 19th, 2009

Cardog10 (7:03 pm): “The people who hated on Chipper on the previous blog shouldn’t consider themselves Braves fans. Chipper has earned AND deserves the respect of Atlanta after being here for 15 seasons. He isn’t 25, and he will get hurt… but I will take 120 games from Chipper. He is THAT productive. We have Prado and Infante to back him up, so stop bitching. He has a hurt hand he needs to let heal for a week and some of you have the nerve to question his 3-year deal? He just won a batting title for God’s sake… I don’t want him to EVER be on another team. Signing him for 3 years was great, I would be furious if we didn’t. He IS the Atlanta Braves. You fair-weathered fans can go cheer for David Wright and the Mutts or something… pathetic.”

David, Finally get your attention?? I love movie, art, literature or travel talk. I even enjoy your musings. It is your abject neglect of certain issues related to the Braves that rankles me. I was also highly disappointed when you allowed a disabled and aging pitcher to call you out for doing your job. You were using sources–that you believed in–and yet you allowed a pitcher to cast aspersions upon your actions. You were doing your job well and you got bullied. That is sad. Maybe that has dissuaded you from reporting on other stuff. If so, that is also sad.

You are something of a Rennaissance Man, but it may be time to move to a market that doesn’t allow its athletes to hold serve to such an extent.

So talk about anything you want,however remain cognizant that there are a few who believe you are taking the easy way out. Probably not a good idea to question an aging, breaking down former superstar’s roster status or contract. I can see your point.

By the way, I only questioned the economy so much here because the baseball writers in Atlanta weren’t discussing it like the other sports journalists in America. Maybe “journalist” is the key. I guess this is BLOGGING.

It’s obvious that the Bravos need Chipper to anchor the lineup; that said, we need him to be a bit tougher and play through some of the bumps and bruises. He seems to be catching “Bob Horner Syndrome.” I hold my breath every time he hits, runs, makes a play, walks, eats, laughs, scratches his head, etc… You were paid (VERY well) to be a presence in 135+ games, Chipper. Suck it up and play. This team depends on you to be a leader, and part of showing leadership is to play through discomfort. You’re a great player, arguably the best to ever wear a Braves uniform, so please don’t go out sitting on the bench. Please show us why you’re a first ballot hall-of-famer!

N8 (9:01 pm): “I actually really like Matt the “hitter”. I was all for giving him the everyday job last year.

“But the premise of my post where you quoted me, was to keep the bats in the lineup, AND improve the defense a bit. . . KJ is also a better LF than Matt, and with the way Garret Anderson’s legs are these days, as I mentioned before, even Klesko would be a better option out there (LF).

“I would love to have Matt’s bat in the lineup everyday, but not at the expense of the defense. Maybe I’m overrating defense in the OF, but with not having pin-point control pitchers that allow the defense to be set and to NOT miss spots, we need all the range we can get in the OF, and to be honest, KJ would have more range than either Garret or Matt.

“If you disagree, I can respect that.”

Oh, okay — defense. (Whew, I thought you were dissing Diaz’ bat. My error.)

Won’t argue that KJ would outperform a gimpy GAnderson in LF — but imo, so would Diaz.

I also don’t know that KJ would be THAT much better defensively than Diaz to justify giving up the platoon advantage at bat. KJ’s played only 89 ML games (~650 innings) in LF — what were his (advanced) defensive stats back in 2005?

I know 0 errors and 6 assists, 2.39 Range Factor (comparable to 2006 Diaz), but that’s all.

Prado has got to learn how to run the bases. Dude is a good player but… wait I’m not an MLBer so why am I talking about he should run?

Considering the Braves played the Twins and Jack Morris in the 1991 World Series while Chipper was sitting at home after finishing his rookie minor-league season as a 19-year-old and not in 1992 while Chipper was sitting at home watching the Braves play the BLUE JAYS in the world series after finishing his 2nd minor league season as a 20-year old, you can hardly blame him for not doing anything against Morris in the 1992 world series.

According to Chico Harlan, the Nationals have made some major changes to their 25-man roster. Here’s a quick synopsis of the moves:

* Josh Bard: Optioned to AAA-Syracuse
* Saul Rivera: Optioned to AAA-Syracuse
* Wil Ledezma: Designated for assignment
* Steven Shell: Designated for assignment

The quartet was replaced by pitchers Jordan Zimmermann, Garrett Mock, Jason Bergmann, and veteran Kip Wells.

Following today’s loss to the Marlins, which completed the second three-game sweep of the Nationals this season for the Fish already in 2009, Manny Acta was not shy about the bullpen:

I think it’s embarrassing. I think it’s unacceptable. I think our fans have every right to be mad, like we are right now. And it’s not going to be tolerated. We’re going to have a brand new bullpen tomorrow… We had a chance to win three games in a row, we couldn’t do it, and it’s not going to be tolerated… Plenty of moves, and more to come.

really? Go to IMDb.com and you’ll find 25,000+ who not only think it was better, but that it wasn’t even close. I’m surprised that you’re surprised.

WILLSTER

Seriously you write like a complete moron. You don’t use punctuation correctly, you obviously don’t proof-read (or can’t spell, or both) and your arguments are as sturdy as termite infested cabin. Read some of your posts from tonight – like, what the fu-k are you even talking about?

because the trend then was braves beat houston every series in the playoffs,except the braves losing trend started.

Huh? Your ability to articulate a point is utter failure.

Eric, Morris actually pitched for the Blue Jays in the 1992 World Series. But he had a crappy series and went 0-2, losing to Glavine and Smoltz during the series. Willster was clearly talking about 1991, though, since there was no game 7 in 1992.

Oh I know PWH, but I knew Willster had to be talking about 91.
