Any chance Lincecum puts too much pressure on himself to end the losing skid and the pitching matchup turns into a dud?

“The scouts were watching the ChiSox to see who else the Bravos could fleece from Ozzie’s doghouse in the winter (hello, Javy!).”

I think the world of Vazquez, but that trade was far from a fleecing. Tyler Flowers had an OPS of right at 1 before he got promoted to AAA the other day. He looks to be a great one. We won the trade but it’s not Jurrjens for Renteria by any stretch.

Well, Johan Santana had never beaten the Braves before Saturday; so, perhaps it’s only fitting that we go out and beat the Freak tonight.

Go Braves!

First 2 batters, Linecum strikes them out. Then……Chipper pokes a single, steals second, and McCann pokes another single for a 1-0 lead.

I think that the key to this inning was the fact that even though the first 2 guys struck out, both McLouth and Prado worked the count. The hitters behind them were able to see what Linecum was throwing.

If the Braves can win this game. We will be 3 games over .500. There is no reason why we cant pound Barry Zito tomorrow. It would be nice to go into the Milwaukee series 4 games over .500.

What about Smoltz?

McLouth of the South

Yeah, Chipper and BMac got hits cause Prado took a pitch. Good insight Peter Paul…

McLouth of the South -

I actually have heard that hitters on deck can actually pick stuff up off a pitcher by watching guys in front of them. Just Sayin’.

I think Schuerholz retired because he didn’t want to make the tough decisions regarding Glavine and Maddux. Wren deserves credit for allowing Glavine and Smoltz to move on

McLouth of the South…………..did you even read that posting? I didnt say that they got hits because “Prado too a pitch”. Linecum threw 11 pitches to the first 2 hitters. Chipper and the guys was able to get a good look at what Linecum was gonna be throwing early.

Try quoting me correctly next time.

mlbtraderumors noted that heyman says the redsox are still scouting victor martinez…how many moves they gonna make??

Bill Simmons said that the Indians wanted Bucholz for Martinez and the Sox wouldn’t do it so they went to plan B – which was …. Roachy?

Paul Lentz

Rob from SC………..Frank Wren is the GM. However, when it comes to the really big decisions (like cutting Tom Glavine and trading Jeff Francoeur) you can best your last dollar that Frank Wren got the ok from Schuerholtz. You can imagine that Bobby Cox was not an easy sell on those moves.

Rob from SC…

Good point…I thought the same thing for the longest time…that coupled with the fact he was GM for a long long time as you know and the run was over.

Scheurholz still has A LOT to do with day to day baseball operations of the Braves.

He is the President…So doesn’t any transaction also have to be approved by Scheurholz as well?

Interesting article from BA on which prospects are “untouchable”. However I think it’s focused on the value that certain prospect has to it’s organization. I haven’t read anything that would suggest Brad Holt is an “untouchable”, but for the pitching starved Mets, possibly.

I think the world of Vazquez, but that trade was far from a fleecing. (GV)

too early to be sure, but I was a big fan of Flowers (course I was a hippy in the 60s). I agree that he certainly has a chance to be a good major leaguer.

This Giants line-up is really scuffling. If Jair Jurrjens can avoid the big pitch count innings…..then hopefully he can have the shutout going through 7 innings, in which Bobby can use Gonzalez in the 8th and Soriano in the 9th to take this bad boy.

“The Freak” looks like a one trick pony, at least from a spectator’s view. Fastballs, then change or curve on the payoff. His stuff must be really nasty to be that predictable.
