Willie Harris and Pete Orr obviously understand the importance of this game to their former team…..give a big assist to Willingham too…… 2 gift runs early and Lannan already over 30 pitches….I feel for Stan Kasten.

OK, I cann retype it now:

Thanks for that stat, Chief! :D I knew he had been doing better in that spot since the Break, but I didn’t realize he had been doing that good!

Yeah, they sent that for me…they knew I was upset after Wednesday. ;)

That inning was amazing. Are we playing the Washington Nationals or the Washington Generals. I really think we could sweep them for 7-0.

Ryan Zimmerman just came out to Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody,” the song McCann used briefly as his intro music at Turner Field.

keylargo………we just disagree on the value of on base percentage. I’m not saying that OBP isnt valuable. I’m saying that it isnt the overriding factor.

Batting average, slugging pct, and RBIs, and runs scored also are important stats as well. Greg Norton is batting .200, slugging .200, knocked in 2 runs, and scored 1 run since the All-Star Break more than override Norton’s .385 OBP since the Break.

If Greg Norton could run or play some defense…..then him having a decent OBP would be tolerable. However, the ONLY thing he can do is work the occasional walk. Given the fact that he cant hit anymore, he simply is a waste of a roster spot.

Baseball America started its Top 20 prospect rankings for each league this week, starting from lowest leagues and moving up. They’re doing one every day or two, and have covered three leagues so far. Of those three leagues, the Braves have the top prospect in two — catcher Christian Bethancourt was rated No. 1 in the Gulf Coast League and right-hander Julio Teheran of Danville was No. 1 in the Appalachian League. (The other top 20 was from the Arizona League; Braves don’t have an affiliate out there, obviously)

Also mentioned in the Appy League rankings are Tyler Stovallm(16), Mycal Jones(17), and Brett Oberholtzer(20). The article mentions two other Danville Braves that had break-out seasons who missed the cut, blog favorite Riaan Spanjer-Furstenburg and Chris Masters.

McCann has proven too prone to passed balls, particularly down and to his left. He needs some more defensive work in the offseason. Helluva throw to nail Orr, though. And now a base knock. Nice work.

Playing Guitar Hero in the players’ lounge. I mean, he was into it. Sitting there staring intently at the big flat-screen on the wall, rocking away on the little black guitar. He wasn’t laughing, smiling, anything. He was serious.
