And here I was thinking that by watching the Braves tv broadcast I could avoid the Derek Jeter Love Fest 2009! but apparently I was mistaken. Here’s hoping tomorrow’s game isn’t blacked out on Peachtree…if it is I might explode

What's Hanson's velocity?

I’ve seen 91-93 touching 94 with a below average curve and average slider. Third starter stuff, command and control.

Schafer in center and McLouth in left, and Jeter out at second or stuck at first.

So when Escobar makes mental mistakes he gets benched as punishment, but when Kelly makes mental mistakes he gets a pat on the @$$ and a “better luck next time”?

Hmmmmmmmm. . .

the hope of the braves nation rests in your hands mr hanson

i wrote this in the old blog on accident but if kelly wouldnt have been sulking he would have beaten that out easy…. just plain sucks.

hanson meanwhile is having big trouble locating his fastball….he is nowhere close. set up the double play.

No offense, but if Hanson is ou best pitching prospect, I’d hate to see the other ones like Rohrbough, etc. He’s gonna be good because he has great stuff, but his control his, uh, bad.

Will the tag team of Cox&Chipper give KJ a dropkick after the game? How about seeking out AJC reporters to push a snarky quote? Or will it be more hypocrisy where Yunel gets a spanking but others slide on by?

Boy Hanson is good at getting out of jams. Atleast he’s got that going for him tonight. His control still hasn’t settled in.

Paul Lentz

If Kelly Johnson had been busting his tail out of the box immediately upon hitting that ball off the plate, he would have easily beat out that chopper. I rewound that play and say that he stood there, then looked up, and then started running. The ball was in the air 2-3 seconds before he started running.

It is the lack of good, baseball instincts that is killing the Braves. The announcers on t.v did not say anything about it. Hustle is something that cannot be taught. Either you have it in your heart, or you dont.

If Kelly had ran immediately upon contact (if the ball goes foul, he can always walk back and bat again), then not only would the Braves be up 1-0, but it would have gotten the pitcher out of the way and you’d have McLouth leading off instead of Hanson.

You know I’m surprised more teams haven’t pitched around Tex to get to Arod…he may be dangerous but he’s hitting worse than Frenchy.

AndyC

That is one thing you can count on with GA. If the ball is hit directly at him or in his general direction, he will catch it most of the time. :)

He hasn’t thrown over there much…and he just ignored the guy on second. Ya know, just ’cause they’re already in scoring position…

Ah, whatever.

We have already seen the usual suspects show up tonight. The cancers of this team–Frenchy’s impetuous bull%$£^ with men on base, KJ’s idiocy, and even BMac’s poor defense behind the plate (luckily that bobbled ball didn’t come back to haunt us there). These are the reasons we aren’t 5 games over .500. STUPID STUPID STUPID and very avoidable mistakes.

If that ball goes to 2nd, chances are CDJ comes home and possibly scores…might have been a blessing in disguise that Mac dropped it.

Lets be honest. Bobby Cox loves Francoeur and Johnson and in his eyes they can do no wrong. On the other hand Cox hates Escobar and will bench him any chance he gets.

Paul Lentz –
I notcied the same thing: Neither Joe nor Caray made one mention of KJ’s lack of instinct and hustle after that play. Joe was too bust lavishing praise upon Kelly for his two walks last night. WOW – 2 walks. Put him in the hall of fame now.
