I let this blog make all my decisions for me. I’ve been on auto-pilot for a while. It’s worked out pretty well. I mean, I still get to blog at my SkyMall customer service gig in the prison call center. I cut someone the other day. Said his name was Lentz. I couldn’t abide that. He’ll be laid up for a few weeks. I just hope he stops using the air quotes. Lousy f***er.
October 1st, 20091:42 pm
I’m sure everyone is blaming Matty D for last night’s loss. Well, you can all just shut up. Yes, he made a bad decision & no one could feel worse about it that Matty. But there is PLENTY of blame to go around in that loss. Let’s start with Chipper
Red Sox are not including Casey Kelly in any deal, in any way, shape or form. Not happening. Buchholz is also probably off limits after the last six weeks (Tuesday night’s stinker notwithstanding). That they dealt Masterson, who was immensely popular in the clubhouse, and not Buchholz for V-Mart speaks volumes of where the Sox hold Buchholz in their regard (don’t know if he’s still “dating” that Penthouse Pet, though).
Reddick is the insurance policy, since I think Drew is a free agent after next year and Reddick probably is another year away from a being an everyday regular. He’s got some pop in his bat and he is a great, great kid.

OJ the way the Dodgers are playing lately, good luck on your sweep scenario. Far better chance Rocks sweep LA than other way around, unfortunately.

RE: Bobby Cox on Marlins 5-4 win, September 30th
“Errors are part of the game, and so is baserunning,” Cox said.
- Is this guy serious?????
Yes he’s as serious than Yoggi Berra when he Say that “Cash is the Same think of Money”
I think Huddy should work for the league minimum. After all, he went to Auburn.
Oh well…in that case, he’d probably work for minimum wage.
October 1st, 20091:46 pm
I went to the 40-man of every club searching for former BRAVES and found OMG, 56. And those are just the one’s I remembered or suspected. That’s 24 in the NL and 36 in the AL. Two plus 25 man rosters out of 30 teams. That’s like seven plus percent of all players on ML 40-man rosters. Obviously that’s a huge number because if each team had that many at 7.47% X 30 teams that’s like 224% which doesn’t compute. Anyway. I was going to post this season’s stats for all of them along with their career numbers. Just too many and too long. I’ll pick the pitchers and do selected stats because there’s less of them, 25 to 31 position players. Then again maybe I won’t.
October 1st, 20091:48 pm
Oops, that’s 7.47 percent on 25-man rosters. Not a math whiz, sorry.
I know, but he may hold up for 90 games there. I’ll stop the ridiculous argument now beacause DOB chastised me yesterday for suggesting such a thing. And DOB was correct, Chipper won’t do it unless Wren refuses to sign a First Baseman and Chipper really begins to embarrass himself at Third next year.
October 1st, 20091:49 pm
That seem like a proposition you would jump at?
October 1st, 20091:51 pm
For Anders: Look That Reyes be out for 2010 Season to.
The Mets announced Reyes’ latest medical setback moments after they ended their road schedule with a 7-4, walk-off loss to the Nationals, completing an embarrassing three-game sweep by baseball’s worst team.
The Mets did not say the extent of the newest injury, but a complete tear of the hamstring muscle most likely would require surgery. The team, though, declined to announce any immediate treatment plan.
Manager Jerry Manuel also said before yesterday’s loss that Reyes was running at just 75 percent of his full capacity at the time of the latest setback. Reyes hasn’t played since pulling himself from a game at Dodger Stadium on May 20.
“They’re trying to make a determination [on surgery], because there’s only so much time after surgery that you’ll have [before spring training],” Manuel said before Reyes’ torn hamstring muscle was announced.
What makes the situation seemingly outrageous is that Reyes had a good chance of being back in the lineup in September if he had opted for surgery in June, when he tore the hamstring tendon.
Instead, the delay and the subsequent hamstring muscle tear will force Reyes to miss winter ball and threatens his availability for the 2010 season because recovery from both injuries can be lengthy.
The prospect of surgery also would all but erase the Mets’ chances of trading Reyes in the offseason should they make the unlikely decision to break up their core of players.
Though the debate over surgery on the torn hamstring tendon dragged on far too long, what remains unclear is where to put the blame for the delay.
The Mets have not said whether they have urged Reyes to have surgery when the tendon was torn completely during the early June workout in Florida or whether they went along with Reyes’ stated desire not to have an operation.
Reyes said during a visit to Citi Field earlier this month that he wanted to see if the injury responded to rest instead. He also repeatedly said he considered surgery a last resort.
“That’s the last option on my mind,” said Reyes, who also lashed out at unspecified critics for questioning his desire to return.
Reyes ends the season having appeared in just 36 games, by far the fewest of his career. He also hit just .279, his worst showing since 2005, with two triples, two homers and 15 RBIs to go with 11 steals.
Manuel said he considers Reyes’ almost season-long absence his biggest disappointment and a huge factor in the Mets’ dizzying plunge from preseason World Series contenders to 67-92 and one step from the NL East basement.
Manuel said that Reyes’ speed, both defensively and on offense, would have been a boon to the Mets in their first season at spacious Citi Field.
“With his speed and range, it would have been exciting to watch him perform there [at Citi Field] on a daily basis,” Manuel said. “I was looking to him becoming the guy to lead the infield and him having a great year defensively.”
2 Homo Boys (Tim and Jim)
the Braves need to look at the Marlins for their 25-30 homerun guy. My husband and I read where the Marlins want to trim payroll and that they are considering trading Dan Uggla and Jeremy Hermedia.here are the 25-30 homer guys.yes we know that prado has had a good year but Dan Uggla will give you more power.Hermedia is an Atlanta Guy so go after him.we too will give you 25-30 hrs.it might be easy to get either one of these guys.Marlins need a second baseman so KJ and KK with a couple low level minor leaguers thrown into the deal mighrt just work.Marlins need piching and KK could help them and their payroll still be cheap.Uggla or Hermedia batting behind Chipper would work rather well. Chipper should be able to see some better pitches.Move Big Mac to the number 5 hole and hit either Uggla or Hermedia in the cleanup spot.
October 1st, 20091:52 pm
I just hope he stops using the air quotes.
OK, I can visualize the air quotes, but, how do you do the air all-caps? I mean, there has to be some way to do it with “MORON” or “SUCK A$$”, or else it just wouldn’t the Dentz we know and love, would it?
Hope you didn’t cut the wrong guy by mistake. That would be, well, a waste, LOL.
October 1st, 20091:55 pm
I’ll stop the ridiculous campaign for Chipper to First. Dob chastised me yesterday for suggesting it and rightfully so. The only way Chipper goes to First is if Wren refuses to sign a First Baseman and Chipper continues to embarrass himself at Third.
Hi Again guys, My husband just thought of another guy who could give the Braves 25-30 HRs and bat behind Chipper. How About Josh Willingham.Also the Braves have got to resign LaRoche.maybe 2 yrs with and option for a thirs year.
October 1st, 20091:56 pm
Am I booted? My last 2 posts didn’t post.
Dan Uggla is one thing but we are absolutely not signing Jeremy Francoeur. Hell no.
October 1st, 20091:58 pm
DOB, What are your thoughts on Jermaine Dye??? He seems like you could pay him reasonable for 2 years, and provide the perfect bridge to Heyward. It would also be a home coming of sorts. Thoughts???
I’m pretty sure Kubel has bad knees (or at least one). That’s why he’ll probably be a career American Leaguer.
October 1st, 20091:59 pm
“David Wright has more errors than HR this year.”
Come on now. In a Chuck Norris world, David Wright doesn’t make errors. Errors get David Wrighted.
October 1st, 20092:00 pm
DOB, Where’d my posts go?
Then people didn’t know what to do and he just got awkward polite applause. Anders
I remember that. Awkward is a good description…
October 1st, 20092:02 pm
I can’t make David Wright jokes anymore, not since he was human enough to admit that he flinched on occasion after coming back from the beaning.
October 1st, 20092:04 pm
Dan Uggla hits under .250 and strikes out 150 times. I don’t think that is the fix we are looking for either. Doesnt seem like that would be what we want. 30 homers are great but more strikeouts not so much.
October 1st, 20092:06 pm
Errors get David Wrighted. N8
You bet your bum they do.
October 1st, 20092:10 pm
The Best Candidate Outfielder with Power is the Texas Ranger Nelson Cruz. The Ranger future Outfield be LF:Julio Borbon,CF:Engel Beltre, RF: Josh Hamilton…The Ranger need Pitching next Year…Go get it Braves.
I didn’t think we were looking for a “bridge to Heyward.”
I thought we were looking for a left fielder.
by the way, we don’t talk about Jordan Schafer’s prospects much anymore, he’s still alive, isn’t he?
October 1st, 20092:11 pm
Keep all of our pitchers and move Lowe to the closer role or try Hudson as the closer. Remember Smoltz did well as a closer. Huddy might just work out in that area.then you can keep all your pitchers that way.resing LaRoche and add Uggla or Hermedia/ Willingham and we are set.
October 1st, 20092:15 pm
he’s still alive, isn’t he?
October 1st, 20092:17 pm
hermida will be non-tendered in the offseason, bats lefty, and is not an upgrade. I like Uggla but Prado has earned the 2nd base job. We need a power bat for LF or for 1B
October 1st, 20092:19 pm
my guess is that if the braves approach the marlins it will be about cody ross
October 1st, 20092:20 pm
I can’t make David Wright jokes anymore, not since he was human enough to admit that he flinched on occasion after coming back from the beaning. ncscoots
Scoots, Wright just played you man. He only wants you to think he’s human. I’m not sure why, but who am I to question Goofy Helmet?
October 1st, 20092:21 pm
your power bat is Dan Uggla, Dude can hit 25-30 homeruns per year.put him in outfield. My husband read where he played some outfield before bat him behindChipper and Chipper will get better pitches to hit.
October 1st, 20092:23 pm
Thrill, maybe you’re right about, well, Wright, LOL. OK, I’m back to rippin’ on his butt, then.
RHR's father Greg Norton
Is this the Atlanta Braves blog? My daughter RHR tells me what a fun place this is to hang out. She tells me how much you guys love me,especially Paul Dense. Isn’t that a funny name-Dense? He must be Italian. She also told me how many of you love my friend Chipper. Chipper and I have been planning for months and months our hunting trip. He told me we could start on Oct 5th and Bobby said it would be ok. Chipper has a special friend he wants to come with us- Rob from SC. One thing I didn’t understand, he said Rob wouldn’t need a gun. What did he mean by that? Oh well, I’ll see you guys next season.
guys, huddy taking a pay cut at this point in his career is not the same thing as a businessman gatting a pay cut. his contract will be up, which mean he has to renegotiate, and alot of facotrs come into play. demand, health, age, performance…weather he wants to take a pay cut or not he certinly will. remember, he is making $15mil this season. no one will pay him that next year.

“Errors are part of the game, and so is baserunning,” Bobby Cox.
Another possibility is Carl Crawford,dude can also hit.I really think TB will pick up his option but if they don’t there is another possibility.sign Kotsay to come back as our pinch hitter and get rid of Norton.
October 1st, 20092:25 pm
Probably bringing up an idea that’s been mentioned 100 times, but what about trading DEREK LOWE to the Astros for CARLOS LEE?
October 1st, 20092:26 pm
Jason Bay would be a great fit for this team in left field. I had hoped we could have got him last year before the Red Sox did.
October 1st, 20092:27 pm
anybody for pinch hitter except Norton.
October 1st, 20092:28 pm
Jason Bay would be good but we believe he is represented by Boros and that won’t work.
If it weren’t for this blog I wouldn’t go near ajc… Cynthia Tucker….are you serious! I think she is Maxine Waters in disguise

October 1st, 20092:29 pm
You’ve talked about no one being willing to take on Derek Lowe’s contract b/c his trade value is the lowest it could be and his salary the highest it could be…
And, you’ve talked about Vasquez having suitors lined up left and right…
What if we put together a blockbuster package and sold the availability of Vasquez, but only with Lowe????
Surely there’s a buyer there somewhere that would be interested in talking that over and would bring in a power bat and more….
October 1st, 20092:32 pm
“Give me 1 REASON, just one REASON to believe otherwise or that things will be drastically different next year.”
OK. Tommy Hanson.
Since his callup on June 7th, The Braves have been one game worse than the Phillies.
You tell me. Had Hanson made starts in April & May instead of Jo Jo & Medlen.
The Braves went 3-6 in the 9 games started by those two, (1-3 in Medlen’s, 2-3 in Jo-Jo’s).
The Braves went 12-8 (.600 winning percentage). If you take simple math to those 9 starts, you get 5.4 wins (.600 percent of 9).
It doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to add 2 more wins to our total.
Add to that, the addition by subtraction of Jeffy had the team going 44-28 after he was traded. Coincidence? Not with the way he was playing. How about Prado playing instead of KJ?
I’m not going to guarantee that next year circumstances and results are the same. But had this team started with Hanson in the rotation, Prado at 2B and ANYBODY playing in RF, I’m guessing the Braves have between 5 and 10 more W’s on the board and are coasting to the playoffs with Bobby lining up his rotation.
It’s not coincidence that once all those moves were made the team turned it around. So, going into next year, one would have to assume that the team plays better from the get go.
Let’s not forget Trading Kotchman for LaRoche.
The one thing that worries me is the bullpen.
But I’m going to say it right now. Tommy Hanson (barring injury) will be in the top 3 in the NL Cy Young voting and his teammate JJJ will also be in the top 5. Mark it down and remember who said it first.
tiger woods…Ks are not that big of a deal, since uggla still gets on base at a decent rate…but looking at his OPS, he hasnt had a much better year than marton prado. id stick with martin.
if uggla plays left, id consider it.
Keeping It Real
October 1st, 20092:33 pm
The Braves are boring with average talent. This is why attendance is so low. Who wants to spend $50 each for gas, parking, ticket, food and drink to watch guys with no speed, power and entertainment appeal. If they are boring on TV, then just imagine sitting in a seat at the TED for four hours. At least you can change TV channels while sitting at hom. Maybe Heyward and a blockbuster trade can change things. Uggla, Hermedia, Schafer, Holiday, Dye, etc. will not put more people in the seats. Face it, the product is not good. If the Yankee players where playing for Atlanta, the attendance would be much better. I am afraid that the glory days of Atlanta baseball are gone.
October 1st, 20092:34 pm
Well guys first of all we ARE talking about Hudson taking a paycut because that is what he has said he would be willing to do if a multi-year extension could be worked out. He would give a home team discount but get to stay in Atlanta and be paid about what he is worth but over several years. Makes perfect sense to me because he ain’t getting a lot anywhere else at this point and about 25 million for three years coming off TJ is nothing to sneeze at. Wren would be a fool to pick up his 12 million option and an even bigger fool to lose Vazquez and have Hudson replace him at said 12 mil. Just the thought of having Lowe and Hudson as 2/5 of the rotation is not comforting at all without Vazquez in the mix.
scoots, I’m not really poking fun of David Wright. Just the glowing and humming that surrounds him wherever he may roam.
I actually really like the dude. Wish we had him.
October 1st, 20092:35 pm
Chief Nock A Homa, points for creativity. JJ, Hanson, Hudson, KK, and Medlen(?) I assume would be the starters left over. I think that seriously takes away from one of the team’s strengths.
October 1st, 20092:39 pm
We read somewhere that Uggla has played some outfield and he could play Left Field and provide us with 25-30 hrs. also Carl Crawford if TB does not pick up his option.Looks like they might.
Tim and Jim looks like your man is ready to be traded.
October 1st, 20092:41 pm
dap…and your 2:23 is right on the money. I know the Braves aren’t paying Hudson 12 mil in 2010. Not real sure they will extend him either.
October 1st, 20092:43 pm
season could be over by 6:30 tonight…if the Rocks lose they could get swept by LA….LA needs to win now for home field
October 1st, 20092:44 pm
My earlier post on Hudson should say that “indications are” he would give a discount for a multi-year deal.
October 1st, 20092:46 pm
At least people are being more reasonable with their overblown estimates of what it costs to attend a game.
I know, I know, families are expensive; but, for 1-2 people, baseball is cheap.

October 1st, 20092:48 pm
There are the easy marks to bash on this team and the easy ones to praise. One is rather baffling, though. How or why does McLouth seem to enjoy such favorable reviews? The trade was lauded as a “steal” at the time, and he was going to be such a significant upgrade. Do playoff teams really have a .260 leadoff hitting centerfielder? Not too far off his career average, actually.
Ugh, why do I even read the Braves Vents anymore? Especially after a big loss. Some of those vents make the loonies on here look like physicists.
October 1st, 20092:49 pm
CB – well said at 2:46
October 1st, 20092:51 pm
Ok, I’m ready to attack whenever McFann gets back.
October 1st, 20092:53 pm
You’re going to beat up McFann?
Why are we so bad….at home? It’s been this way since forever.
October 1st, 20092:55 pm
OK who wants to get scoots started on the Hudson/Vazquez thing again. Where is Lew?
October 1st, 20092:56 pm
Because we don’t have any fans at the games, so the players lose on purpose. If we had sell outs all the time we would be undefeated. It’s a ploy to get people in the seats, but its not working.
No, I’m not beating up McFann.
We’re combining forces to take down Bradley for jinxing Mac this year.
October 1st, 20092:57 pm
Remember that year when we made it to the postseason with a losing record at home?
jeffrey d, I agree. One of my better thoughts. You should try it also.
October 1st, 20092:58 pm
Nope, sorry, huh-uh, LOL. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. When Wren does something about either one, I might have a comment. Until then, that puppy is in my rearview mirror, LOL.
I like your attitude pryguy!
On a sidenote, I thought it was only appropriate that I pass out copies of the Loaf Believe sign today.
Vaquez for Nelson Cruz!!!! Pull the trigger Wren!!!!!
October 1st, 20092:59 pm
No way! I love MB
October 1st, 20093:01 pm
just joking scoots….catch you guys later. The Hot Stove is always burning.
Those are strong words, my friend. Both? In the Top 5? I sure hope. They’ll have to contend with:
Lee, Hamels, Santana, Johnson, Carpenter, Wainwright, Zambrano, Lilly, Gallardo, Kershaw, Billingsley, Lincecum, Cain, Haren, Jimenez, and their own teammate(I hope) Vazquez.
But I suppose they’re in the same sentence as those guys.
October 1st, 20093:02 pm
Bob – yes, they do:
Curtis Granderson (DET) – .241 in 582 PA leading off
Jimmy Rollins (PHI) – .246 (.292 OBP!) in 686 PA leading off
Rafael Furcal (LAD) – .267 total (494 PA leading off, 150 batting second)
Dexter Fowler (COL) – .259 in 434 PA leading off
I agree on the McLouth post where it seems he gets a pass on his performance. I expected more and hopefully next season he produces. Didn’t he have like 46 doubles last year with the Bucs? If he’s not going to hit for average we need more power numbers from him. Hard guy not to get behind and support but need more.
I still can’t believe how that game ended. Love Matty D but absolute horrible mistake.
Marc in FL
Why do people keep mentioning Uggla. Horrible player, the ONLY thing he does well is hit 25-30 homers a year, not worth giving up Prado at second for him.
OTL on ESPN is talking about Native American Indian names being mascots. How maybe teams would have to change their nicknames….that would include the Braves.
Aw, scoots, “it was fun the first time wasn’t it?” STRIPES.
October 1st, 20093:06 pm
I understand people are probably skeptical about the year that Vazquez just had, but shouldn’t we also be the same about Nelson Cruz? I like him, I admit. But not straight up for Javier Vazquez. I’d want more than that from Texas. Plus, he has a no trade clause to all AL West teams, I think.
October 1st, 20093:11 pm
IF FOR NO OTHER REASON, WHICH THERE ARE A LOT, LETTING NORTON BAT WITH TWO MEN ON BASE LAST NIGHT, SHOULD GET HIM FIRED IMMEDIATELY!
October 1st, 20093:20 pm
Bobby did a good job lighting a fire under the Braves, however, 1st and 2nd no out, pitcher’s spot coming up in the 6th, I know let’s use Norton. That offsets everything smart that he could possibly do as a coach
October 1st, 20093:21 pm
First of all, McLouth has never been one of the best overall centerfielders in the game; he’s merely solid which is just fine. So if you were expecting a Beltran type talent, you were expecting too much in the first place.
Second, McLouth has a .357 OBP and has stolen 12 of 17 bases. His OPS+ is 103. Melky Cabrera, Jacoby Ellsbury and Colby Rasmus have all performed worse this season than McLouth has with the Braves. They all play center for playoff teams. We can’t point to lots of other things besides McLouth as reasons the Braves are going to fall short.
The Abs Man
October 1st, 20095:27 pm
Let’s be honest about this: And I’m a long-time avid Braves’ fan since Milwaukee.
The scoring September run was tons of fun and gave us all lofty thoughts, but anyone who follows this team closely knows Bobby would have certainly fucked things up in playoffs lidlifter.
So quick death yesterday vs. Marlins better than slow drip-by-drip Bobbyisms later.
We’ll all have 162 games of it in 2010.
Let’s not kid ourselves.
Odds-on Bobby would’ve named Lowe and Huddy to open post-season, citing resume or some corny home-spun country saying about experience rather than face fact of Jair or Javy dominanting all season If Braves opened vs. two Dodger southpaws, Wolf/Kershaw….even-money Cox would display his usual post-season savy playing Norton at 1B instead of LaRoche…..If Braves faced Cards and two powerful right-handers (Carpenter/Wainwright) possible even Kelly Johnson replaces Prado at 2B.
All serious and honest Braves’ fans know this deep down in their hearts.
Did Norton pinch-hitting for Huddy in 5th inning yesterday re-kindle?
They know how many games Norton, Jeff Bennett, Manny Acosta, prematurely removing a still-strong starting pitcher, et al have thrown away this season with Bobby pulling Braves underwater.
So as much as it hurts when the overall productive Diaz brain-locked running bases like Bobby mismanages, well, like ripping band-aid off all at once better than inch-by-inch.
October 1st, 20095:34 pm
October 1st, 20095:41 pm
I hear the Rangers are willing to headline a trade for a frontline SP with Nelson Cruz. That’s 33 HRs and a cannon arm in RF. And he’s 28, I think. Would the Braves and Rangers pull the trigger on a Vasquez-Cruz deal?
October 1st, 20099:09 pm
Maybe we can trade Jordan S and barbaro C and maybe another guy for Shin-Soo Choo.
October 1st, 200910:14 pm
I think they should have chipper redo his contract because he sure wasnt worth his money and put incentives in there for games played , batting average . Trade Lowe for maggy doesnt sound bad as long as Detriot pays the difference between the contracts which is about 3 million plus maggy will be a free agent at the end of next year . That will clear money . Huddy should take a huge paycut but with incentives with innings pitched that can make it higher .
October 1st, 200911:50 pm
Javy Vazquez for Derek Lee?
October 2nd, 200912:22 am
could we trade lowe for alfonso soriano
October 2nd, 20099:29 am
I believe all you “so called” Braves fans need to quit your crying. Since June 28th the Braves……………yes your Braves have the best record in baseball. I think the front office and Bobby Cox did a tremendous job in getting this team to be a contender from what they had when they broke camp in April especially with the budget restrictions they have and my hats off to them. If you think things are bad now then I wish you could go back in time and experience the Braves teams in the 70’s as I did. Half of you wouldn’t be posting blogs here because you would have given up on them. The 14 year run has spoiled much of you and you should be happy that your Braves gave you hope right up until game 158.
October 2nd, 200911:40 am
Heck of a year guys. Perhaps if Hudson came back sooner we just might have made it. I am so proud of the Braves this year because they did not quit. They did not give up. Good job. I am proud to be a Braves fan-for life.
October 3rd, 20091:12 pm
Enter your comments here I am sick and tired of all the Bobby Cox bashing…doesnt anyone remember what a laughingstock this franchise was before he took over in the 90s. Yes, he lost 4 WS…but 14 straight division titles..a professional sports record…remember when they caught the Giants in ‘92. Tony LaRussa is respected..but disliked by players in his OWN clubhouse..has any ex brave EVER said anything bad about Bobby?..Ask Javier Vasquez how much he enjoyed this season playing for Bobby instead of that idiot in Chicago
October 3rd, 20091:23 pm
I agree about Uggla..horrendous fielder..all or nothing hitter..BA has been around .240 all year. Alfonso Soriano could not play for Bobby..he does not hustle..one of the worst outfielders. I think Cubs will resign Lee.
