That should be enough to continue the DOB-Bowman SuperBrawl 2010.
As for Smoltz – they’ve got to get that guy in a broadcast booth. Hilarious.
Love the blog, DOB. I wrote a few minutes ago how I hope Glavine stays with us in some way, etc. To know how I feel you go back and read it on the last blog, if not, I don’t blame you.
I agree with you Dave, Braves could use another decent bat in that lineup and maybe Nady is still the best option. Who knows ….
Just added a poll to the blog, about which pitchers get in Hall of Fame and which on first ballot.
I’d Love to Have Glavine Back! My Narrow carcus would get starstruck if I was a 20-something pitcher who watched Glavine for so many years growing up…I’d probably see his aura like “Rick James in the Chappelle’s show skit”
D.O.B. Those Throwback Pictures Rule!!! Brings back memories!
You must collect baseball cards, since you post them on your blogs, which is cool, since I collected from 1989-2002

From The Last Blog
“Melky’s numbers did improve this year and he is only 24 with three years under his belt. Billy Walsh
his numbers improved because he moved into a better hitters park, how hard is that to understand?”
With our Ballpark dimensions Milky will be lucky to hit 10 homers this season

A point or two about HR’s versus doubles. Everybody digs the long ball! No doubt. Sometimes a double actually extends an inning when a team is building up some momentum.
Two runners on, a HR gets you 3 runs. It also takes a bit of pressure off the pitcher, with no runners on base. But, a double probably gets you two runs, and gives your next hitter a chance to keep the rally going. Also puts additional pressure on the pitcher.
Now, uncle nolie is probably going to point out how I have it all wrong…..
January 15th, 20107:18 pm
haven’t posted in a while, but still read it. DOB, What are the chances Maddux gets in unanimous? To do what he did in the era he pitched in, he has to be close.
the seas for me
Thanks for the new blog DOB,
I’ve never been first.

if smoltz is on the poll, i guess it would all come down to if he gets caught in tigers lair.

I was a little torn on if Smoltz would get elected 1st ballot. Hard considering not knowing who he is up against. But he has gone down as argueably the greatest postseason pitcher ever, great closer, great starter, Cy Young winnner, 5 WS appearances, WS ring and only guy on the greatest decade and a half regular season dynasty. Hard to imagine him not getting in 1st time.
Plus another thing all three have going for them is no link to ‘roids. Too bad our players didnt cheat a little, we may of won more WS titles. Worked for the Yankees. Just kidding…sorta…
Granted, I’ll admit I’d prefer him over Melky for 4th OF Redstick
he can’t be a 4th OFer, he can’t play CF at all and he stinks at the other 2 positions. anyway the guy is likely toast.his bat speed was so slow last year that one day a bird landed on it the middle of a swing
Moylan and 127 others filed for arbitration today. Means nothing, really. Team will keep negotiating with him and likely settle before a hearing, like just about everyone does.
January 15th, 20107:24 pm
lotsa folks feel the same way you do, certainly McFann does, but I’ll take the guaranteed extra run with the homer. afterall it is Bobby’s three run homer offense.
Maddux first ballot. Smoltz and Glavine, maybe.
*meant only player on the entire greatest decade and half regular season dynasty
January 15th, 20107:25 pm
DOB, it’s good to see the Braves and Glavine are talking, but I find it interesting that it’s Schuerholz, and not Wren, doing the talking for the Braves. And, of course, it was Schuerholz who apologized last summer. I’m thinking things aren’t exactly hunky-dory between Glavine and Wren, and probably never will be. The Damon situation is intriguing, but I don’t see his price tag dropping enough to fit the Braves’ payroll. Plus, as much as I’d love to see him at the top of the order, his defense — particularly his arm — would be a liability. When all is said and done, I believe he’ll be back with the Yankees this season.
Wren should’ve let Hudson go to begin with. If that had happened we;d have Dye or Damon right now instead of Milky Cabrera, and Hickey….
Let’s see – Hudson (Next years Ace @$9Mil) + Melky + Hickey or Jermaine Dye or Johnny Damon?
Dang that Wren is shrewd!
January 15th, 20107:26 pm
his bat speed was so slow last year that one day a bird landed on it the middle of a swing
Shucks, then forget about Dye because that’s one talented bird… sign him instead!
January 15th, 20107:27 pm
Bay Area Steve
“If there’s ever been better proof that you need to stick to R. Kelly, I can’t imagine it. You’re calling 6-7 million dollars for Dye below-market?”
Yeah I called Dye Signing for 6-7 mill below Mkt value for the fact that he has hit his whole career despite his slump in the 2nd half last year. Dye was looking at getting broke off at about 9-10 mill this offseason just like LaRoche…
A bird in the hand….makes sense.
January 15th, 20107:30 pm
I don’t think anyone will ever get in on a unanimous vote. I mean, 9 people voted against Babe Ruth.
woogidy: Maddux should be unanimous, but some genius will refuse to vote for him simiply because no one else has been unanimous. You watch. It’ll happen. This is the time when I wish Hall of Fame ballots were made public, so the person or persons who doesn’t vote Maddux on first ballot would have to defend the action.
Chuck James was Solid Until the 6th!!!
I agree with your post and for the people saying Melky might hit 10 HR’s IF he is on the roster OD, then that just mean he’ll be hitting more doubles too. And you can’t deny from last years performances that the man is clutch and also take in consideration he did it on the biggest stage on the planet. And oh yeh, he’s only 25 years old!!! AND his defense is A+! Give the guy a chance to come over and prove himself some guys don’t reach their potential until around 27-28 and I think he is on the verge of proving he can do bigger things then he already has. Just my opinion….
However, not just because of the rumors, just because of the lack of interest and Johnny’s more than willingness to play in ATL, I think too if they can move Melky to say the Padres a team that can control him for a few more years for a prospect then they could easily come up with the 5-6 million to sign Johnny. I think having Damon would really solidify this club as a whole. Everybody on the 25 man roster is consistent and reliable already but with Damon you add another proven winner and leader to go with Chipper.
January 15th, 20107:31 pm
Wayne Glavine was one of the 3 best pitchers of his generation (Maddux, Clemons(cheater), Glavine), a top 5 lefty ever, 300 games winner, multi-Cy Young winner, 5 WS apperances, WS title, with no link to steroids and you dont think he is a sure thing for HOF. I think people also severally underestimate the point that no link to steroids, which is huge. Question, this is for anyone, Im curious, how many 300 game winners havent been elected 1st time and who are they?
As for Smoltz, its hard to say because nobody’s career is really like his. Closest is Eckersly, but I think Smoltz’s career is even better because he became a starter again after closing.
Actually.. it was 11. I just looked it up. It looks like Ty Cobb got the closest in actual numbers (only 4 votes against). Seaver got the closest on percent (just under 99%).
January 15th, 20107:32 pm
That picture looks like Smoltz is walking with his two sons
January 15th, 20107:35 pm
If he isn’t first ballot that is a JOKE!!!! I agree with you, the idiot(s) who just want to be cool and do it for no sane reasoning should be called out and have to explain themselves…. It would be PATHETIC if he didn’t get in on the 1rst ballot. But like you said %98 chance he won’t because of those couple of fools who want to have their little stupid personal part in history to share with close friends like, “I was the guy who didn’t vote Maddux, so I’M the reason he didn’t become the 1rst unanimous in!!!!” Thinking it’s “cool” or something… Some people are just plain idiots, that will never change.
Alan I would say your probably right about Glavine and Wren, but I really cant blame Wren. In Wren’s eyes he made the team better,which he did, with choosing Hanson over Glavine. He was not friends with Glav, he did not owe him anything. Wren is trying to make his own dynasty and Glavine would of never been a part of it as a player.
As for JS on the other hand, was probably pretty good friends with Glavine, felt he owed him better than that, and had Glavine as part of his dynasty. Glavine was one of his “guys.”
You are probably right and I really cant blame any of them.

Hey David! If you ever make it to La Jolla (remember you have to try fish tacos from Wahoos) I’ll have to tell you my Mike Scott story, it is a very good one. This is the Sea is an album I would have to have with me on the deserted island. Great choice.
I hope Glavine does work with the Braves would be nice to have him back in the fold.
January 15th, 20107:37 pm
Yes, I think he is HOF material. No doubt. I just said I wasn’t sure he would be a first ballot inductee. A lot depends on who else is on the ballot. Some voters are strange about voting too many guys per ballot.
January 15th, 20107:39 pm
Dave, it would be nice the see Glavine work out a post baseball position with the Braves. After spending 17 years here, he shouldn’t work for anyone else. I also find it interesting that the Braves accounced this, around the same time that it was announced that Greg Maddux has taken a front office job with the Cubs.
Glavine should be a lock to get in the Hall on the first ballot. 305 wins, 2 Cy’s, World Series MVP, What else do the writers need to see? I’ll admit I was furious when he left the Braves to go to the Mets, but, that’s all in the past now. One day it will be a thrill to look in Cooperstown, and think that three of their members, once pitched back to back to back in the same rotation for the Braves.
Chuck James: You misread. There’s no doubt Maddux will get in on first ballot. The question was whether he’d be unanimous. There have been no unanimous selections. Ever. But he should be (and probably won’t, for the reason I stated).
January 15th, 20107:41 pm
old coronado sailor, just like in the song …, them was the dayz
DOB I think every fan in baseball,not just Braves’ fans, would agree with your 7:30 post. I think the votes should be public and if you vote against someone you should be able to explain why. If your reason has nothing to do with baseball or its because everybody else was voting for him then you should automatically lose your voting privilage.
January 15th, 20107:44 pm
I think Smoltz will be a first ballot HOF, too. But I think Glavine will be on the 2nd.
January 15th, 20107:45 pm
If your reason has nothing to do with baseball or its because everybody else was voting for him then you should automatically lose your voting privilage.
Well, then there’d be very few – if any- voters. Everyone makes it personal once in a while. Human nature, my man. Example: Alomar not making because of spitting incident. You can’t tell me they turned him away becuase his numbers weren’t good enough.
Unanimous or not, really doesn’t matter. He’s still in first ballot.
Gotta run. Time to go home!
January 15th, 20107:47 pm
I’m guessing there will be more than one who won’t vote for him. nobody has ever hit 99% though 10 or so have made 98%. If there are 300 voters 99% would mean 3 didn’t vote for him.
I gotta say that I think there have been guys more deserving that Greg who weren’t unanimous
January 15th, 20107:49 pm
One final thought. It would have been cool if all 3 had hung ‘em up together. I think the voters would have put them all in together.
January 15th, 20107:50 pm

January 15th, 20107:53 pm
dave, surely you know that the players dont decide which cap they are imortalized in in cooperstown. the hall decides that. so it doesnt matter which team maddux prefers.
January 15th, 20107:54 pm
Redstick if you started doing that then voters would straighten up. That is my whole point on taking it away. Being allowed to vote for that is a privilage and should be handled as such.
January 15th, 20107:55 pm
So, DOB, what’s the deal with Bowman saying the Braves are unlikely to sign Damon whereas you continue to stoke the hot stove fires of hope in us poor wretch die hard fans??? Different sources say different things, I suppose? Or is it just hope for a better tomorrow?
Nolie I agree. I thought of him right after I posted that. However, considering Clemons is a cheater, I would still put him in the top 3. However, agreed RJ was better.

Just accept whatever Glavine wants. Tell him you love him. Plan a wonderful future for Glavine and the Braves, get out of his way and cheer his results.
Atlanta loves Tom Glavine……
We all need hero’s
Cherish him, appreciate him, and encourage him.
On the side : When the Braves meet the Yankees in the 2010 World Series, wouldn’t it be nice to have Glavine available to win it for the HOME team.
Why not a storybook ending?

January 15th, 20108:01 pm
so, if laroche was available for 4.5 mill (up to 6 with incentives), why did we go with an old guy with questionable defense, coming off an injury?
January 15th, 20108:02 pm
Yeh if you read further in to my post, I said unanimous, just forgot to on the first mention… I meant, to clarify, if he doesn’t get in UNANIMOUS then the idiot/s did it just to be that “guy” behind the scene so he can brag behind closed doors that he was the reason. Or some of these guys hold long personal vendettas because they may have had a bad run in with Mad Dog back in like ‘89 and havn’t let it go …. That’s usually the case when guys like Ruth and Williams didn’t get in unaninmously as they %1000000 should have! Especially when you consider Ruth had 96 wins as a pitcher with an ERA in the 3’s!! That’s ABSURD!!!
January 15th, 20108:03 pm
“On the side : When the Braves meet the Yankees in the 2010 World Series, wouldn’t it be nice to have Glavine available to win it for the HOME team”
I like it. Sounds good. It’s only right.

What about Bert Blylevin? In or Out?
January 15th, 20108:08 pm
Nolie there may have been a couple more deserving of unanimous, but do two wrongs make a right? Eric
I know that this is gonna be a totally unpopular outlook, but I understand why some voters feel that way and vote accordingly. If they think that Babe or Ty or Tom was a better player and didn’t get unanimous, why let someone you value less do it?
It’s not like it would usually mean that the guy wouldn’t still get in on the first ballot. Greg is gonna get in almost assuredly.
I’m not saying that I would vote that way, but I understand the appeal it has to some. and in the right circumstance I might.
I’m not trying to convince anybody that I’m right.
January 15th, 20108:09 pm
Joe I would say it depends on who he is up against. My gut says no. While he was one of the greatest offensive catchers, he was also one of the worst defensive catchers. Also I would never consider him one of the best players of his generation. Example being, McCann is one of the best offensive catchers right now, but do you consider him one of the best players right now, regardless what position they play?
I do believe Piazza is a HOF player. Dont want to make no mistake about that, just not 1st ballot. Sort of why I dont think Smoltz is 1st ballot. I believe he was one of the great pitchers of his generation, behind a few obviously, but not one of the best players of his generation. I think 1st ballot should be given to the players who went down as one of the best of their generations, regardless of what position they played. If you put Piazza’s numbers at another position you would never consider him 1st ballot, maybe not even the HOF. So hard for me to put him on 1st ballot. Just my opinion though.
January 15th, 20108:10 pm
DOB, you’re right. Maddux should be a sure-fire first-ballot unanimous pick for the Hall of Fame, but he won’t be. No one has been — ever. He’ll get in for sure, and he’ll probably get 90+ percent of the vote. In my opinion, Glavine (with 300 lifetime wins) deserves to get in on the first ballot, but I don’t think he will, and I don’t think Smoltz will get in on the first ballot, either. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if it takes several years before Smoltz gets elected. Just like you, I don’t have a whole lot of faith in the electorate.
January 15th, 20108:11 pm
Add Jack Morris to list of pitchers who should be in the HOF Billy Walsh
borderline IMO. won’t matter to me either way. I’d vote Bly in first, myself. again not trying to sell my position
January 15th, 20108:12 pm
Nolie what if every voter thought that way and no one voted for him. Then he would never be on the ballot again. I realize this would never happen, but that is how stupid it is not to vote for a guy because everybody else is. It is plain ludicrous. You are voting on that guy. Not guys who played 50 years ago.
January 15th, 20108:13 pm
i do think that maddux has a legitimate chance to be a unanimous first ballot choice.
two large reasons, other than his obviously deserving career
1) he is the poster boy of non-enhanced performance who did his best work in the heart of the steroid era. Hall voters obviously let this influence them on McGwire (and certainly Palmeiro, Clemens, Sosa, etc will suffer their wrath as well). i think it will factor into their decision.
2) maddux has a pretty unanimous good-guy image. i met him as a green horn sports writer, and he treated me with absolutely nothing but graciousness, despite the fact that i pestered him a little about the strike five weeks before it happened. i have to wonder if there is a single sportswriter that has it in for him.
January 15th, 20108:14 pm
You are voting on that guy. Not guys who played 50 years ago. Eric
I said that nobody would agree with it, but that is my thought on the matter after much cogitatin”.
January 15th, 20108:15 pm
A quirky solution would be to make the voting public for ten years, and then close it up again. That way one or two could get voted in unanimous, and it would be common knowledge that making the vote public was the catalyst for the sudden change.
That way the non-unanimous votings of Babe and the like would have a secure place, as the first unanimous player(s) would have an unspoken asterisk.
Then close it back up, because the angle of guarding against the unanimous vote to guard the legacies would be over with.
Just an idea.
January 15th, 20108:16 pm
Piazza is a first ballot HOF. That is a no brainer. He is the greatest offensive catcher of all time. Look at his numbers when he was with the Dodgers (96-01). Put those numbers up at any position and you are a first ballot HOF. 36 hr 113 rbi and 308 batting average in his 16 year career is a first ballot resume.
I see what you mean. Piazza, however, has the most HRs hit by a catcher; was named to the all star team 12 times; has 10 silver slugger awards; and He’s Italian.
I agree that Mad Dog has a fair chance of collecting all the votes not just because of his career accomplishments.
January 15th, 20108:17 pm
i agree with bert that curveball alone was hof
January 15th, 20108:18 pm
I would vote the Pizza man in first ballot… unless I thought there was a chance he might be unanimous J/K.
January 15th, 20108:19 pm
Tim Raines deserves to be in too
January 15th, 20108:21 pm
Joe I agree that he is defiently HOF material and withing his first 3 years. My only thought, is if all position players were stuck together would you still think he was one of the best of his generation? My thought no. The only reason I can see putting him down 1st ballot is that to my knowledge he has no link to steroids and if voters refuse to put in steroid users, which I disagree with but thats another day, then they have to put in someone.
Since my two all-time favorite players are Greg Maddux and Tom Seaver, I would love to see the two of them at the top of the list for best percentage of the Hall of Fame vote, regardless of the order…
January 15th, 20108:22 pm
I voted on the poll that smoltz will be eventually, but not on the first ballot. I just get the impression that the people casting the votes will punish him for that time as a closer. I think he could very easily be a first-ballot guy, but as DOB said…some voters are just odd with their reasoning.
January 15th, 20108:23 pm
the real Andy I at one time thought the same thing you did too on your number one. If you refuse to vote for steroid users then you have to vote for somebody. However, there will be at least one or two people who wont.
Of the players in the HOF, who here remembers on which ballot they got in? Anybody? Bueller? Didn’t think so.
There aren’t any shootout points awarded for making it on the first, second, or tenth ballot, nor for percentage of votes upon the entry. I can’t imagine one player in the HOF berating one of his brethren over how many ballots it took to get in: “Sorry, Mr. Rice, REAL Hall of Famers get in on the first ballot. Please don’t sit at our table.”
In other words, who gives a happy bleep, LOL? You’re in…the…Hall…of Fame. Binary solution, no gray area. Like that.
January 15th, 20108:25 pm

Scoots, how ’bout iffen you gots to wait for the OldTimers committee to get ya in?
January 15th, 20108:30 pm
Did you vote for Kevin Appier?
Bert should %100 be in by now. Especially because of his consistency and durability and what was he 9 wins shy or whatever of 300?? And yes Piazza is a 1rst ballot NO DOUBT. The thing that baffled me about this years HOF candidates was McGriff. The man was as consistent a 1rst baseman in the history of the game for nearly 2 decades, helped lead the Braves to a WS title and had 493 HR’s and got what %20?!?!??!?! That is absurd too!!! He better get in one day or the system is flawed. Because if he hit those extra 7 measley HR’s, he would have been a shoe-in, no? He was never linked to steroids, was a class-act and had one hellofa commercial and the hat he wore in that commercial should get him in alone!
All joking aside, I was expecting McGriff to get atleast %60 votes if not elected….. Something is wrong…
January 15th, 20108:31 pm
I guarantee you the player knows what ballot they got in on.
January 15th, 20108:34 pm
nolie, I gots no problem with the Veterans’ Committee, either, LOL. With no offense to DOB, those guys are as likely to be on target with selections as the BBWAA.
Now, if folks want to get hot and bothered about a player who should or should not be in the Hall (in their opinion), that’s something I can get. The number of ballots and vote percentages? Seems superfluous.
January 15th, 20108:36 pm
You seen Crazy Heart yet? Soundtrack looks unreal amazing.
Excellent blog, you’ve been turning out great stuff in the off-season. I haven’t posted much but I always make sure I read it.
On the HOF, no doubt in my mind and I’m being biased as a Braves fan that Maddux, Smoltz and Glavine should all go on the 1st ballot all as Braves. It would be awesome to see that, of course they won’t go the same year but it’ll still be a tremendous honor and something that us Braves fans can celebrate.
I would be very happy to see the Braves offering Glavine and eventually Smoltz a job with the Organization in some capacity.
Oh, and I still think it’s a travesty that Robbie Alomar didn’t get into the HOF on his 1st ballot, I hated him as a blue jay (as they beat the Braves in those WS), but he was a heck of a 2nd baseman for a decade.
January 15th, 20108:37 pm
Frank Thomas… First ballot?
What are your thoughts on the Braves making a run at the recently DFA’ed Eric Byrnes rather than go for Damon? I know the injury history is a bit of a concern, but the defense and the potential power bat seems to cancel that out for me.
Also, the Big Star box set is amazing…thanks for bringing it up in here, I forgot about it and just picked it up. Best box set I’ve listened to since the Faces “Five Guys Walk into a Bar…”
Eric from MO
In regards to Piazza and McCann, they are what they are Catchers!! So when they are going to be viewed on the ballot, the voters have to look at how they match up to Catchers in the hall. If McCann keeps what he is doing up he will go down as one of the top 5 Catchers of All-Time. So I think Piazza gets in 1rst ballot because he was the best offensively at his position throughout his entire career which spanned a solid 2 decades of consistent power!
January 15th, 20108:40 pm
a player knows when he was drafted too but does it matter in the end? I gotta agree w/ scoots…If you make it in that is all that matters at the end of the day.- Or just make another hall of fame and call it “The Real Hall of Fame” and put all the first ballot guys in there.
January 15th, 20108:46 pm
Do you wonder what the enemy is thinking about the Braves? Here is the Phillies take on the offseason moves the Braves have made and what they expect out of them next year.
January 15th, 20108:52 pm
Is the current player payroll budget going to be the same in 2020, 2030, and beyond. This is about the same budget that it was 5, 6 years ago? Is there never any leniency to get a player who can help the club, without having to trade or cut another? This budget stuff has gotten very old!
This is not a compelling team right now, and although Damon would not be a total cure, it would at least raise more interest. As stands now, I see a team with 80 +/- wins in 2010, a ho-hummer for Cox’s last year.
