P. W. Hjort……….I cant believe it. You agree with my assessment on Derek Lowe rebounding in 2010. Stop the presses.
October 22nd, 20099:31 pm
Btw, don’t even think I read all that BS from Lentz. I just scrolled down to the bottom of the page, started reading a paragraph, and read that sentence with “real Kelly” in quotation marks. Knew the source of the BS right then & there.
October 22nd, 20099:32 pm
DAP. Sure, Lowe is 37 years old. However, he has been healthy his whole career. He takes care of his body. I see no reason why he cant rebound. Again, his body of work shows that he can rebound from a sub-par season.
The Braves dont need Derek Lowe to dominate in 2010. Just go a little deeper in games and not give up as many base runners, which leads to more runs allowed.

From the lovely atmosphere the fans at Dodger Stadium provide, I thought the Dodgers were already the Raiders of baseball….

I agree with your conclusion, yes. But it’s a conclusion I’ve come to on my own after studying his BABIP (2nd in the league, .333).
October 22nd, 20099:39 pm
i don’t think there is evidence to tell you he wont.
There’s plenty of evidence to suggest that what we’ve seen in the last 10 months is what he really is. Plenty.
I don’t have ADD. In fact, I read the essays that are at times Braveheart’s posts, and (is this where I use caps? i don’t know, you tell me) ALWAYS are N8’s “posts.”
Your stuff is just utterly annoying. Please do us all a favor and change the way in which you deliver your message.
October 22nd, 20099:41 pm
That’s not to say he won’t ever OPS over .800. Players’ OPS fluctuates a great deal more than their fundamental skills. But I’ll just say this, his luck-removed OPS (use PrOPS or BABIP corrections or whatever) will probably be in the .770-.790 range for the next few years and slowly decline thereafter.
Cubs Potential Offseason Targets: Kelly Johnson | myMLB - Angels
October 22nd, 20099:43 pm
[...] Braves GM Frank Wren came out today and said Martin Prado will pretty much go into 2010 as the their starting second basemen which leaves Kelly Johnson as prime trade bait. It doesn’t mean the Braves have to move him, but he’s certainly going to be available for the right price, which can’t be a whole lot for a guy with a .692 OPS last year. He’s also arbitration eligible and coming off a 2.85M payday in 2009,Â so it’s very possible – let’s go ahead and call it likely – that he’ll just end up being non-tendered if he’s not traded before December 12th. [...]
October 22nd, 20099:48 pm
The are only 2 realistic scenerios that I see the Braves re-signing Adam LaRoche under:
1. If the Braves seriously view Freddie Freeman as the 1st baseman of the future, then signing LaRoche to anyone more than a 1 year contract would be foolish from an economic standpoint. Chances are Freddie Freeman will spend the 2010 season in Triple A and be given a chance to win the 2011 opening day first baseman job. In that case, the only way I see the Braves re-signing LaRoche is to a 1 year contract.
2. If the Braves feel that dangling Freddie Freeman in a prospective trade package to improve the offense, then I feel that there is a good chance that the Braves will re-sign LaRoche to a 3 year deal.
I feel that Option 2 is less favorable because the Braves would rather see Freeman develop and give them an affordable, cheap run producer from 2011-2013.
Regardless, the only way I see LaRoche coming back to the Braves in 2010 is on a 1 year contract. Chances are, LaRoche will try and secure a multi-year contact from a team who is willing to meet his demands.
If the Braves dont re-sign LaRoche, then I’ll reserve my right to make any suggestions until after I see who is available in free agency. Teams have exclusive rights to re-sign their own free agents until 15 days after the last game of the World Series. So there is little sense on speculating who the Braves could get until after the free agency period begins.

October 22nd, 20099:49 pm
WOW, you are so frickin smart. You have predicted that Lowe will rebound in 2010. Damn. That thought NEVER came to my mind!!!
But I guess you would probably guarantee that KJ wouldn’t rebound in 2010, huh. Heck no, you are so darned smart, that you just KNOW that he will continue to be a SUCK AZZ BUM.
Did Kelly Johnson get your mama pregnant or something???
You are about the most ignorant sumbeach that I have ever heard tell of in my 54 years.
I dont understand how you dont resign LaRoche….he is the component that finally made them great last year. I feel like the moves Wren needs to make are simple and obvious:
-re-sign Hudson for 9MM
-use the $ you save on Hudson towards LaRoche.
-Do away with the red jerseys…make the blue jerseys the sunday home jerseys and then its white for home, grey for away for the remainder of the week. they are the best uniforms in professional sports (the white, grey and blue)…but the red is just depressingly awful.
-try and either trade Lowe or KK for a good to very good OF bat. If not…its McClouth, Diaz and Church or Schafer and the most stacked and arguably best rotation in all of baseball.
-Have Don Sutton replace that guy who asked to be called Boog.
-Pick a sold-out game to be Tom Glavine Appreciation Day and escort out any idiot who boos.
-Keep an eye on Smoltz and think about whether him closing and closing out Bobby Cox’s final season makes sense…it just might after the ASG. I’m not saying this should be done…I am just suggesting he keep an eye on the situation.
Thats it! Honestly…he keeps it that simple and I think we win the pennant.
October 22nd, 20099:53 pm
Thanks for answering my query about MOYLAN as a closer.
Yeah, doing away with the red jerseys is the trick. Skip the righthanded corner outfielder, just scrap the red jerseys, and we will be OK.
October 22nd, 20099:56 pm
FW was being real careful not to tip his hand on anything crucial to 2010. I think the Prado revelation was an obvious choice for sure. I guess we will have to just wait and see for how they go with Huddy, LaRoche, and the closers.
October 22nd, 20099:59 pm
PWH is there evidence other than his last 10 months, and his BABIP?
Steve from OH
October 22nd, 200910:00 pm
LOL, Lentz thinks that because Lowe had a similar season in 2004 as he did this year, that he’s a sure thing to rebound? Gimme a friggin’ break. And then saying his seasons with LA are proof enough that he’ll rebound in 2009? C’mon. It’s one thing to say “career stats,” it’s quite another to say “well, he sucked in 2004 and was great in 2005…wait! 2009 was almost the same as 2004…so he’s bound to be great in 2010!” That’s just bogus reasoning–and that’s why we all think you’re such a douchebag–you beat us over the head with your sometimes correct conclusions that you have reached in astoundingly erroneous fashions, and then parade yourself as some sort of messiah for doing so.
Your conclusion is the probable outcome next year, I think, but how you got there? Yeesh.
October 22nd, 200910:01 pm
You know what, I just read all of BAS’s stuff on Lentz yesterday.
He’s right. It’s pure comedy…unadulterated. Even if the whisky did bring out a “I hate Lentz” and maybe even a douche reference, if I’m not mistaken, in the wee hours of the morning. BAS hates that alcohol is bad for you. I hate that sometimes it exposes truth.
October 22nd, 200910:02 pm
Can you please elaborate on your 9:48?
October 22nd, 200910:08 pm

October 22nd, 200910:09 pm
Watch this folks. This is why my Yankees……are The Yankees.
Sax jacked…………… 1 out…………..Johnny Damon baby!
Wanda from Utah……….Kelly Johnson will not be given a chance to rebound for the Braves in 2010. It’s cost prohibited to pay a back-up utility second baseman $3.5 or $4 mil. If you think that Kelly Johnson will accept a 2010 contract at 80% of his 2009 salary….especially given the fact that he can easily be awarded $3.5 or even $4 mil by an arbitrator……..then you are out of your mind. And if you think that Frank Wren would risk having to pay a back-up second baseman coming off an AWFUL 2009 season…then you are again out of your mind.
As I said last night……if Kelly Johnson really feels that 2009 was a fluke and that he can be an above average starting second baseman……then he would be a fool to sign a 2010 contract with the Braves at 80% of his 2009 salary. He’d be better off signing with a team who will give him a chance to win a starting job in Spring Training.
However, I feel that if the Braves were foolish enough to offer him a contract at 80% of his 2009 salary…..then he would be a fool not to accept it…..because I dont feel that Kelly Johnson will ever be a productive Major League second baseman. Major League Baseball pitching has made adjustments to his hitting that Kelly simply isnt able to counter.
OK, he flied out.

STUPID! You idiot! What’d ya throw it down the friggin’ MIDDLE for??
Poor Lackey…he wanted to finish that, too. What a bum rap.
October 22nd, 200910:16 pm
AAAAAAAA!! Gosh, I hate the Yankees…
Are you kidding me? You’re a Yankee fan?
If the Yanks do end up taking the series, I have no option but to root for the Phillies….and that’s saying a lot.
Stephanie from Ohio……..It is not surprising that my postings go “way above your head”. For you not to understand the reasoning of how a player has shown over his career that he can rebound from an “off season”……..shows that you arent capable of exercising any reason.
Baseball is a sport of making adjustments. I’m sure that for whatever reason, MLB hitters made adjustments to Lowe’s pitching in 2004 that resulted in him having a tough year. However, his subsequent 4 following seasons showed that Lowe is capable of making his own adjustments to MLB hitters that resulted in big success for him.
Other than being a few years older, what has changed for Derek Lowe from 204? He is still healthy, has not experienced any arm problems, takes care of his body, still has velocity and movement on his pitches, still makes every start and eats a lot of innings.
If you cant understand that, then there is no reasoning with you.
October 22nd, 200910:18 pm
Looks like someone’s got their cackles up.
Tie ballgame btw.
Great article over at Squawking Baseball about the Wilpon/Madoff fiasco (this one’s for you, Mets troll!):
“First off, ignore all the the articles you’re reading today saying that Fred Wilpon actually made money from their relationship with Bernie Madoff. Technically, he did — records show that the family deposited a total of $523 million, and withdrew $571. So leaving it at that, they actually turned a $48 million profit.
But that’s nonsense. Imagine if you had a significant portion of your life savings in a bank, and the bank called you one day and said it was all gone. Think about what that would do to your day-to-day spending, your retirement, etc. Wilpon is lucky to have taken out as much as he did, but it’s still more than likely that he lost a ton here.
So the question remains, how much? This filing that came out could actually give us some hints. I’m not sure what Madoff charged in fees, but let’s say it was 2 and 20 (2% of assets, 20% of gains). Let’s try to come up with a high-end estimate. We’ll also assume 12% returns every year, which is what Madoff was so famous for faux-delivering. If Wilpon put his money in twenty years ago, and left it in until the day before Madoff was arrested, he would have had $2.26 billion invested. Subtract the $571M that we know he withdrew, and you get $1.69 billion. Think of this as an absolute cap; it would have been almost impossible for Wilpon to have lost more than that number.
Now let’s come up with an absolute low-end figure. Assume Wilpon put the money in ten years ago, and the returns were only 10% per year. We’ll also assume to withdrew the $571 million equally over that ten-year period. In that case, he would have lost about $170 million.
If we split the difference, we get about $900 million. The original press reports had it at about $700 million, so I’m willing to guess it’s somewhere between those numbers.
Whatever the number, it’s a devastating loss, and it’s a pretty good bet that the Mets now account for a significant majority of Wilpon’s net worth. And the fact that he made a paper profit off of it may end up costing him even more money, since part of those “earnings” will likely be clawed back and spread around to the other victims. Whether he’ll eventually have to sell part of the team is anybody’s guess. But it definitely wouldn’t shock me.”
October 22nd, 200910:19 pm
The only bright side about that rally is that it p!sses off Lackey. Can’t stand Lackey. Would rather have Yunel x 10 than one of Lackey’s attitude. Dude just irritates me. Reminds me a guy I played ball with one year.
How effective is Jepsen going to be pitching so often in this series?
October 22nd, 200910:20 pm

Supes, I would’ve voted for Lincecum. I don’t know if he’ll win the Cy; it’s too close to call. But he should, in my opinion.
Oh, and Las Palmeras, the Cuban joint on 5th St. here in Atlanta, is really good. Tonight was first time I went. Had pork BBQ sandwich on Cuban bread. Very tasty.

You could plainly read Lackey’s lips when Scioscia yanked him.

October 22nd, 200910:26 pm
Oh, the Mets are stupid:
What was Steve Phillips thinking? Almost trading a 19 year old David Wright for Jose Cruz Jr.? Ridiculous.
Klaw (1:42 PM)
I’ve been asked about that trade rumor for three years but never answered while Ricciardi was still GM. The offer was made, though; I was there when the call came in. It was the first time I’d heard of Wright, since I wasn’t with Toronto in 2001 nor had I followed the draft when Wright was in it. JP’s reaction was, “I’m not trading a major league player for some guy in the Sally League.” And that was pretty much that. We had a chance to trade Cruz after that for Rafael Soriano, but JP refused to do it unless Seattle included Clint Nageotte, who, at the time, was a pretty hot prospect. It’s weird; I can’t remember some things that happened last week but I remember those conversations (over seven years ago now) like they just took place.
Honorable mention stupid of the day? Dodgers owner Frank McCourt, for firing his (soon to be) ex-wife Jamie from her position of team CEO. Congrats Frank, you just made things go from bad to worse!
October 22nd, 200910:28 pm
Lentz, more posts like the one you had to B.C. and you’ll be gone, my man. You’ve been warned.

What the hell happened to the Angels? I stepped away for like 10-15 minutes tops to take a shower and they blow the lead?
October 22nd, 200910:32 pm
Mathis just keeps it comin’…
Didn’t hit much in the regular season, but here, dang…
By the way, this was hours ago but the ump blew another call at first. Damon was safe and they called him out.
and they blow the lead?
oh, but it’s up to -23 now
October 22nd, 200910:34 pm
I’m proud to say I contributed to that. But, that was on my work computer – I can vote one more time on this computer so it’ll be -24 shortly.
October 22nd, 200910:36 pm
I can’t take this anymore. I’m breaking my silence…
When the F*** did Mark Teixeira EVER do anything like that for us? What a f***ing phony.
Of course the ball doesn’t bounce over the fence. It never bounces over the fence for the Yankees. When has the ball ever not bounced their way? When have they ever been the victim of so many bad calls? Or one.
They might not have even won a single World Series in the ’90s if Derek Jeter’s “homerun” been overuled due to interference. Maybe they lose the series and Steinbrenner fires Joe Torre. But no, they get away with it.
F***ing Derek Jeter acts like the edge of the dugout is his own little party patio. I’ve never seen anybody prance around on the dirt in front of the dugout like Derek Jeter. I’ve never seen anybody do that. It’s like he’s on the deck of a cruise ship. Wait for it… yep, a gay cruise ship.
I couldn’t help myself.
I hope their f***ing plane crashes.
Wow, my vote made it -26. You’re catching up to that -57 vent at the bottom.
October 22nd, 200910:37 pm
Mitchell–man, chill out, or you’re going to burst a blood vessel or something.
On a side note, Jeter irks me, too…
October 22nd, 200910:38 pm
Are you looking for empirical evidence or opinions of scouts/experts? Either way, yes.
October 22nd, 200910:40 pm
Glad to hear you are actually a Braves fan. You had me worried. Yeah I saw the stuff Lackey pulled on the mound, right after he showed up the ump for the umpteenth time this year/in his career. They say he’s got that competitive fire, but it’s a little pathetic IMO…especially when you have watch it 35+ times a year here on the west coast.
nolie–even if Schafer ends up as a similar offensive player to McLouth (not a bad comp), I think he’ll always walk a bit more than Nate and he’ll have the added advantage of being (hopefully) a top-tier defender. We’ve already seen that he’s already got the better throwing arm by a wide margin.
October 22nd, 200910:43 pm
That 1-1 pitch to Vlad is his one weakness.
October 22nd, 200910:45 pm
Followed by a 1-2 fastball right down the middle. Ouch.
Good. Let the series continue and the Yankess pen get a little more used before the WS. Philly will need that.
October 22nd, 200910:47 pm
Soph – I suggest you stick with the game the rest of the way…

Ha ha, Mixxo.
October 22nd, 200910:50 pm
Oh, but now I see they took the lead – I missed that.
After hating on Lackey, gotta give it up for one Angel I love watching play…and that’s Tori Hunter. That’s one heck of a ballplayer.
Mitchell, way to let it out man. Bet that felt good. I’m gonna go scream in a pillow…brb.
October 22nd, 200910:52 pm
I like Torii Hunter too. Love watching him in the outfield – he can track down anything.
October 22nd, 200910:53 pm
Leonard Cohen still is fantastic His signature song Hallelujah could be the Braves 2010 theme song or Maybe the late Tim Hardin,s for Bobby Cox Swan song year How Can we Hang On To a dream.I am still pushing the money swap of Derek Lowe for Vernon wells.The Jays can then trade either Lowe or Roy Halladay for any number of players who would help our neighbors to the north Take Off(Bob and Doug McKenzie reference)Wells then moves into left with McClouth with the rookie Heyward sharing your right field area withMatt Diaz.Resign Laroche to a three year deal with mutual trade buyout option while Freddie feelgood and his Funky little 5 piece band(Ray stevens Georgia homeboy reference)Freddie freeman works on his skills in Pearl and then Gwinette,Prado continues to hit and get better at second also he can back up for the brittle chipper Jones at Third Escobar at short was my 2009 team MVP and should be better in 2010,backup infielder is Infante,behind the dish McCann with Ross who is signed thru next season as backup.Sammons goes back to gwinette as insurance as his option are closer to running out.Lets talk pitchig with an H.Ross Perot reference heres the deal resign Huddy to a three year hometown discount,Hanson,Vasquez.and Kwakami as your starters with surprise Mike Minor who starts the season in Pearl then unto Gwinette and welcome to atlanta by mid season .Middle relief can be by some new journeyman veteran affordable free agents with Moylan setting up either or neither Soriano or Gonzalez whichever may be resigned or possibly Medlin closing or heres an outlandish idea Soria the Kansas city closer comes to the Braves for Medlin Kelley Johnson and Minor league powerhouse and whiff king Cody Johnson with his Dave Kingman power.Bobby chases the Philles all season long and we either win the division or the wildcard as Bobby finishes the 2010 Swan song tour and the Braves name Ned yost as the 2011 mgr.Aerosmith sings Dream On in the background or the classic sixties top 40 songs that noboby plays anymore in Atlanta radio Johnny Burnettes Dreamin or Roy Orbision sings Dream baby as bobby heads home to his farm.Oh did I forget to mention Greg Norton?sign a inexpensive journeyman bench player or keep BrooksConrad and let Bobby Rydell sing forget him as Norton heads elsewhere.Anymore song title or lets go back to Leonard Cohen…
Heckuva dang ballgame isn’t it?
Yes Tori Hunter is very good. For all you Andruw Jones fans out there, Tori Hunter is what a real center fielder looks like.

October 22nd, 200910:56 pm
Pauline Dense (Clever, huh. I just thought I would call you a girls name. How unique of me to do that original idea!)
For the most part, most of what you stated about KJ was correct, except for one thing that I thought such a smart (azz) guy like yourself would know, but maybe you aren’t as smart as you think, huh?
If KJ is NOT offered arbitration, and is released, he becomes a free agent. He will NOT get a chance to go to arbitration with another club, you idiot, because he will be a free agent, and then he can be offered minimum salary if a club wants to offer that to him. Heck, somebody could even offer him a minor league contract.
If he is non-tendered, and not picked up quickly by another club, he will NOT get arb money, dumsheeyt!
I hope the Yankees do win this game.
I can’t wait to see them play a real team. I wouldn’t be surprised if the get swept by the Phillies.
The World Series is their’s as far as I’m concerned. They could beat both of these teams combined.
They’re the best team in baseball. I have no problem finishing second to them. Oh wait, we finished third… behind the Marlins… cause we suck. Cause we have a terrible manager.
In fairness, Mike Socia just made Bobby Cox look like a freaking genius. Bobby probably would have done the same thing, taking Lacky out. He probably would have taken him out after five.
Wow, this is turning into kind of an amazing game. Why couldn’t we do this when the Yankees scored six runs on us? What was the big deal about the Leyritz homerun? The game wasn’t over. He only tied it. Why couldn’t we just take back the lead? How hard would that have been? Pretty hard I guess.
I mean, my vent wasn’t that bad. That’s ridiculous
mike mangan, please make some paragraphs. My eyes are crossing.
October 22nd, 200910:57 pm

October 22nd, 200910:58 pm
oh that reminds me, i gotta go read jeffrey’s vent.
I mean, who vents in the offseason? What the hell are you venting about? I never even read the vents in the offseason, I figured it was closed or something.
No, yours wasn’t that bad, jeffrey. I have to say the one that’s in last place is just stupid. There’s some really bad ones that are near the top too.
Steve from OH,
Question of the day: Who is the more incompetent GM, Steve Phillips for making that proposal or J.P. Ricciardi for rejecting it?
October 22nd, 200910:59 pm
I tried to check out your post, but with no paragraph breaks, it was so darned hard to read. If you want your comments read, use those paragraphs, my friend.
October 22nd, 200911:00 pm
Actually, Tori Hunter looks like AJ looked before he lost his girlish figure…….or gave in to the quarter pounder with cheese temptation.
October 22nd, 200911:01 pm
I hadn’t heard, but looks like you’re correct:
There’s been at least one incident like this every year I’ve been at Tech. It’s gotten kind of routine, actually.
Freshmen Chemistry labs are in the basement of the College of Computing building. I’m sure it was a freshmen or incompetent TA just mixing the wrong thing or spilling something.
October 22nd, 200911:03 pm
That may be the mother of all questions, PWH…
Looks like you’re correct:
I hadn’t heard about it until you mentioned it just now.
There’s been at least one incident like this one pretty much every semester I’ve been at Tech. It’s gotten kind of routine, as bad as that sounds.
Anyway, the Freshmen Chem labs are in the basement of the College of Computing building, so I’m sure they’re the culprit.
October 22nd, 200911:04 pm
I thought the goal was to push it to the bottom…I’ve pushed it down 5 times myself
October 22nd, 200911:05 pm
Discipline at the plate and IN THE DUGOUT.
Huh? What does that even mean?
October 22nd, 200911:06 pm
Okay I’ve been watching this game maybe 25 minutes? And I’ve seen both teams’ pitchers get lit up consistently
I don’t get it. Is it a vent?
BTW, jeffrey’s vent is here – http://projects.ajc.com/vent/sports/2009/10/22/#663143
Second from the bottom.
October 22nd, 200911:07 pm
As much as I dislike the Yankees, the move to get Mo up now is a smart one. Why wait until it is too late.
Yeah, you’re correct. There’s been at least one incident like that one every semester I’ve been at Tech. As bad as this sounds, it’s grown routine hearing about them.
The College of Computing houses the freshmen chemistry labs, so I’m sure they’re the culprit.
October 22nd, 200911:08 pm

If the Yankees win it, then I won’t know who to pull for……. Is it too late for the Yankees to trade for Kelly Johnson, and add him to the post season roster?????
October 22nd, 200911:11 pm
Well, that was the easiest way to describe it so she could find it quickly. It’s not my fault. At least it’s not dead last.
October 22nd, 200911:12 pm
OOPS! As much as I like Hunter, who names their kid Torii???
Ah, Chone Figgins… the guy who was tired of losing in the first round of the playoffs every year like the Braves.
That pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?
October 22nd, 200911:14 pm
Who is that out there, Soriano?
Alfonso, not Rafael.
But, Wayne – that’s why his momma spelled it all cool with two i’s. Torii.
Kelly’s mom should’ve spelled his name with two i’s too. Kellii.
Or, maybe not.

If the Yankees win it (and of course I think that they will), then baseball season is over for me. *sigh*
Thinking about changing my name to Waynii! Whaddya think?
At least KJ’s mom didn’t spell it Kellieeeeeeeeeeeee.
That would take away the excitement of Marteeeeeeeeeeen!
I thought the goal was to push it to the bottom
lol, I really didn’t mean to make that big a deal about it. I was just surprised to get home and see it at -13(ish)
October 22nd, 200911:17 pm
I will watch the games….begrudgingly though.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
