This just in: Braves need a win

 

 Pittsburgh — Let’s start with the good news for Braves fans: Chipper Jones is back in the lineup today, Tommy Hanson is pitching today (although in Gwinnett, and not in Pittsburgh), and top prospect Jason Heyward is on the cover of the new Baseball America, which proclaims that he and Marlins prospect Mike Stanton “could set the standard for the next generation of right fielders.”

  Now, everything else. 

What's your biggest concern about Braves?

  No, but seriously, folks: To say the Braves, riding a five-game skid, need a win today, would be like saying things haven’t gone as the Yankees hoped so far in their new $1.5 billion stadium. Or, closer to home, like saying the food at the Turner Field concession stands isn’t the best in the major leagues.

  Anyway, they need a win. Badly. And they’ll have Chipper Jones back after a four-day absence for the bruising he had around his left thumb, index finger and hand.

   But they’ll have to do it without shortstop Yunel Escobar, recovering from a strained ab muscle (though he’s possibly available off the bench today), and without catcher Brian McCann, who’s out of the lineup today, as planned, after using a new ointment last night for the first time for his blurry left eye.
  

  The doctor told him his vision would be even blurrier the morning after using it, and it is today. So Mac, mired in a 1-for-20 slump that’s dropped his average to .200, will sit this one out against Pirates lefty Zach Duke. But will he have to sit out more soon? Possibly.

All-Star is ailing

All-Star is ailing

 McCann said he’d know Monday or Tuesday, after seeing another specialist in Washington, D.C., whether his vision problems are something directly related to some sort of dry-eye condition, something that can be addressed with the drops and ointment he’s using or possibly a tear-duct procedure, or whether his vision has changed so much since Lasik surgery two years ago that he might need a Lasik “tune-up” procedure that could require a stint on the DL.

  Their five-game losing skid’s dropped the Braves to sub-.500 for the first time this season, and three of their five wins have come against the Washington Nationals, which some might argue should probably should count for 1.5 wins.

 We’re kidding, but do you realize the Nats, who are 1-9 with a 6.32 ERA this season, have lost 18 of their past 20 going back to last season? They have a 6.19 ERA in those 20.

  ♦ Speaking of the Natty Nats, the Braves, mercifully, get to face them again in a three-game series beginning Monday in D.C. Not a minute too soon, obviously.

   The Braves would prefer to face them without lugging a six-game losing streak into D.C., and without the sullen mood that would surely prevail on the plane ride to Washington if they were to get swept here in Pittsburgh, where the Braves failed to score a run in the first two games Friday and Saturday.

  Atlanta hasn’t been swept in a three-game series against the Pirates since 1994 at old Three Rivers Stadium. By the way, before yesterday, the last time the Pirates pitched consecutive shutouts against the Braves was 1974, when Jerry Reuss won against the Braves’ Ron Reed, and Ken Brett beat Phil Niekro.

  ♦ Rookies named Jordan: Derek Lowe and the Braves will face Nationals top prospect Jordan Zimmerman on Monday in Zimmerman’s major league debut. The right-hander is to the Nats about what Tommy Hanson is to the Braves.

  Zimmerman features a 93-95 mph four-seamer, a 90-mph sinker, and a good slider and curveball. He had 134 strikeouts (47 walks) in 134 innings last season in high-A and Double-A (mostly Double-A).
  

 And speaking of prospects named Jordan … the Braves’ Schafer is slumping. The center fielder is 1-for-21 with one single, one walk and 13 strikeouts in his past six games, after going 8-for-19 (.421) with two doubles and two homers in his first five games.

Kid's struggling

Kid is struggling

  Schafer leads the NL with 17 strikeouts, three more than anyone else.
  He’s also had some problems lately in the outfield with balls hit to the warning track and off the wall. To me, it looks like he’s played too shallow in some games, particularly here in Pittsburgh. Lot of balls flying over his head.
 

 However, manager Bobby Cox said the only thing Schafer’s really done wrong in the outfield is not knowing when to concede a double and play a ball off the outfield, rather than trying to catch everything.
  ”He thinks he can catch everything,” Cox said, “and he does most of the time. But those balls [Saturday] are off the wall, rockets. There comes a time when you have to let them go, hold them to a double.”
Cox said even Andruw Jones wouldn’t have caught the balls that have sailed over Schafer’s head lately.     “Nobody in the world is going to catch those balls,” he said, adding that Andruw wouldn’t have gone after a few of them, but rather would have known to stop and play the carom.

  As Cox noted, Schafer even tried to catch the two Craig Monroe homers that landed in the Braves’ bullpen.
By the way, Schafer is starting today for the 12th time in as many games. Even if Cox wanted to rest him – and he hasn’t indicated any desire to – you have to wonder if he could right now.

   Because with Escobar out of the lineup, Omar Infante is at shortstop. Infante is the backup center fielder, and Martin Prado’s worst position is shortstop.

  ♦ Power shortage: After hitting 10 home runs during their 5-1 start, including eight in the season-opening series at Philly, the Braves have hit just one homer in their five-game skid and none in the past four games.

Kelly Johnson’s homer off Florida’s Chris Volstad on Tuesday was the last homer for the Braves, and accounted for their only run in that 5-1 loss. have gone four games without a homer.
  

 The Braves have scored seven runs during their five-game losing streak, and four of those runs came in one game, Wednesday’s 10-4 loss against the Marlins.

  After totaling 11 or more hits in four consecutive games April 8-12, the Braves haven’t had a double-digit hit total in five games since.

  ♦ Pirates no pushover: Particularly not for the Braves. The Pirates lost 95 games last season and came into this series with a 4-5 record. But against the Braves, they’ve won six of their past seven games dating to April 3, 2008.
  The Braves hit .235 with two homers in those seven games.
  Two shutouts in the first two games of this series have helped Pittsburgh lower its NL-leading ERA to 2.63, more than a half-run below the next-best in the league, the Marlins’ 3.18.
  Pirates starters have a 2.65 ERA, which is also more than a half-run lower than the next-best in the NL, the Dodgers (3.33) and Cardinals (3.36). Florida starters are fourth at 3.64, and the Braves are fifth at 3.84.
So, yes, the Braves at least have struggled against good pitching, and with a depleted lineup. Not that that makes it any easier for most of them and their fans to swallow.

Etc.
  ♣ Bullpen woes: The Braves’ pen has been pretty awful, with three blown saves in five opportunities and a 7.75 ERA that’s more than a run higher than any other NL bullpen.
  Check out these opponents’ batting averages allowed by Braves relievers: Bennett (.462), Boyer (.429), Campillo (.400), Parr (.400), Carlyle (.360), Gonzalez (.318), O’Flaherty (.308), Moylan (.308). Just staggering. The only Brave under .300 is Soriano at an excellent .067 (1-for-15).

  ♣ Rey(es) of optimism: If you’re holding out hope for Jo-Jo Reyes to get things turned around, this might help: Zach Duke, today’s Pirates starter, is 3-1 with a 1.98 ERA in his past six starts going back to September. This after going 0-9 with a 6.16 ERA in his previous 14 starts. Reyes, with yesterday’s loss, fell to 0-8 with a 7.82 ERA since late June.

 ♣ Lowe’s road roll: Derek Lowe enters tomorrow’ start with a 4-0 record and 0.61 ER in his past five road games, with one earned run or fewer allowed in each of those games. He pitched eight scoreless innings of two-hit ball at Philly in his only road start this season, the Braves’ season-opening win.
 Against Washington, Lowe is 5-1 with a 2.45 ERA in seven career stats, the only loss coming in a game last season when he gave up two runs in eight innings.

I know lots of people will jump all over me but I would have to say……..Prado is as dangerous as KJ……..the guy knows how to find the gap. KJ is just another AJ………HR or nothing.

great job by Pookie/Francoeur. Both Thursday and today he has come up huge with 2 outs and runner(s) in scoring position. Big play with Francoeur taking 2nd on the throw. The Anderson, Francoeur, Kotchman trio have been central to our few runs over the past 4 games.

I am not suggesting this and the Braves absolutely have the talent to turn around this very young season, but if the Braves decide they need to make some moves to rebuild or remold this team I would have to wonder if they would look to the Red Sox who desperately need a SS. If the Red Sox were to overwhelm the Braves with pitchers/prospects they would have to consider it – Buchholz, Daniel Bard, one of their low A arms Price or Kelly, or a position prospect in some combination. The Braves could move Buchholz into the 5th spot and when they deem Hanson ready for a spot in the rotation could deal Vasquez for good prospects as well.

That being said I hope it does not come to that and I hope that this team can turn it around. Today is off to a good start but this team is way too talented to play like they have the 4 games prior to this one (Volstead just beat us plain and simple 5 games ago)

So whose fault is it the Braves run into an out at second and then can’t get the bunt down? Players? Of course it is, but players who have it drilled into their heads and into their routines that fundamentals can make you sink or swim usually find a way to produce.

So Bobby, think you might work on drilling fundamentals into this team? Of course not. Failing to get a bunt down is nothing new to Bobby Cox teams.

I believe that Vazquez AB should have been a sac moving Schafer to 2B and an E1 allowing Vazquez to reach 1B. The scorer should give Duke an error. If Vazquez had later scored in the inning, the run would have been unearned.

In football you have special teams coaches. I suppose the bench coach, hitting coach, etc are the same thing in baseball. But consider this; How many more games might you win each year just by executing fundamentals? Five? Ten?

Since Bobby obviously feels that major leaguers should already know how to run the bases and bunt, perhaps someone in upper management should hire another coach to handle the silly things that Bobby doesn’t fool with like bunting and baserunning. It could actually be worth a few more wins each season.
