No moves imminent to improve offense

St. Louis – Manager Bobby Cox’s farewell season is off to a brutal start, but Braves general manager Frank Wren indicated it was too early to expect any trades to bolster the sputtering offense.

“It’s unlikely any team would make a major move at this time with their roster,” Wren said. “It’s just 20 games, and there are a lot of players [around baseball] well under their norms and other players well over.

“We will continue to watch and look to improve our club whenever possible.”

Wren added that he wished the slumping Braves had a couple of players playing over their norm.

Among lineup regulars, only Martin Prado has exceeded expectations and most have fallen far short of them in the first one-eighth of the season.

Before Wednesday the Braves ranked last in the 16-team lead in batting average (.228), 14th in runs (77), tied for 14th in homers (12) and 15th in slugging percentage (.342).

I’ve got this feeling the Braves are off to the same start as they did last season. Great opening day, then poof, the team doesn’t show up till June. I really want the Braves to win for Bobby since it’s his last year. But this beginning of the season woe needs to be nipped in the bud now. A call up, roster move, trade, or something needs to be made. We need another spark in the lineup from somewhere. If not, then it’s going to be a long season..

At least he’s not acting like there’s no improvement to be had. But maybe we should start with a new hitting coach.

….and are currently losing 6-0 and about to lose 8 straight (only 4 hits nor runs???). I watch every game and this is just at the point of embarrassment. Theres no telling when this streak could end either. They cant get a runner on base unless theres already 2 outs. These guys are sellouts and way under average players. I try to have hope for this season but can anyone acually see this team going on multiple win streaks that consist of atleast 5 or so wins?…I cant.

They need to get home and stop facing the Cardinals before anyone can talk about ending the losing streak. What do fans expect the best team in the National League to do to the 2nd or 3rd worst? Braves should and will lose all four to the Cards. With Houston charging, they’ll likely be swept by them as well. I can see the losing streak easily reaching 12 and maybe 15. At that point, Wren should be fired himself, but he’ll have to end up firing some of the assistant coaches to Bobby. I personally would like to see Wren be gone for his inefficient dealings and lackluster commitment.

Come June the Ted will be Florida Marlins empty and they will be begging fans to come see the last place Bravos. Maybe they should take a page out of Georgia Techs football marketing (I can say this because I’m a GT grad and love Tech) and offer 4 hot dogs, cokes, programs, and maybe a personal picture with Bobby Cox for his “farewell” season. I love the team and maybe they can pull the season out of the cellar but guys in the front office are some of the biggest idiots in town. Troy Glaus??? This was almost as good as the Raul Mondesi experience. Maybe Wren will try to get Willy Mays back and see if he can return to his mid 60’s form.

For crying out loud if your running a baseball team and your GOAL is to make MONEY then put a PRODUCT on the diamond worth paying to see in a s*** economy. It’s called an investment. Laroche did great last year in ATL and would have cost what 3-6 million more a season than Mr 180 Troy Glaus. Give me a break and stop teasing the fans and sign some MEN that no how to win some baseball games. Not guys that were in the Mitchell report in connection to steroids and did good 3-5 years ago.

At what point does it become too late Frank this team is just as inept as the last 5. Even the announcers think this team is bad. What more do you want the team to loose 15 stright and then say let’s try to do something. I think you might want to act now and try to spin something positive out of this season. With the phils not at 100% right now it’s tuff to think we can make up this difference when they return to a full squad. Troy and especially Nate who has had two full seasons to suck need to be gotten rid of and replaced with some one who can play at this level. The coaching staff needs to be replaced. It’s time for a change. Chipper has become such a libility at third it’s not even funny if I were a hitting coach I would have everyone of my players hit it at Chipper. Troy glaus looks like my 6 year old at first. Brian is the worst defencive catcher in the league. He has not even come close to throwing a runner out all year. All but one throw has ended up in center field. Escabor is an idiot. I don’t see this getting any better. Just think of what a different team this would be with Jonny Damond to bad we let him get away. Way to go Frank

Dave, I must say, Frank Wren is delusional. . What is he waiting for? This team will be twenty games under 500, and thirty games out of first, before he makes a move. What good will it do then?

Tonight will be our eighth loss in a row. We are very lucky that we aren’t already totally buried, because neither Philly nor anyone else is really hot. With the way the Braves are playing, if either Philly, or the teams in contention for the wild card spots, have even a short winning streak, the Braves will be finished from playoff contention by May.

If Bobby wasn’t who he is, and didnt have the resume he does, I’d say he should resign. As it is, let him finish the season. I really think that with the way this team is playing, and Wren’s lack of action, that Mr Wren should either resign, or be fired, if the team doesn’t start playing better really soon.

kwaj, yep those of us that watched the 70’s and 80’s Braves are defacto bad-baseball experts. This team has that same feel except it’s kind of a mirror image. Most of those teams couldn’t pitch at all but at least had guys that would occasionally crush the ball. This team pitches ok but might be the worst hitting and defensive team I’ve ever seen. We have 3 of 4 guys in the lineup each night that would not be on any other major league roster.

Steve,

I completely agree with you. While I am not sold on giving up Freeman, the Braves season will be over really soon if this keeps up which by all accounts it will. Even the damn Mets who nobody thought was going to be good has won 8 straight. The Braves are done. By the time they do start winning again, it won’t matter because they will be to far behind.

If they win tomorrow I will be upset!
This team won’t do anything but play at .500 at best this year anyways. I’ve been so frustrated at their flip flop play the last 4 years, I’m actually finding solace in a consistency.
I think they should keep this streak up and see how far they can take it.
It would be better than watching 10 game stretches of 4-6 or 5-5 ball the rest of the year.

Remember Braves: 1991

The pitching will see us through. Hang in there and the bats will improve. Just be a little patient. I think TP should have probably been fired after screwing up Francouer and Andruw’s swings. We need some spirit though. St. Louis has a great fanbase. They stick with them through thick and thin.

Another one of you said by June this team will be 20 games under .500 and 30 games out of first. So the team that WILL be in first place (likely the phillies) is going to be 10 games under .500?!? Come on guys, you’re making us braves fans look stupid. Let’s stick with our team y’all. As bad as it’s been, we’re only 5 games under .500.

I honestly don’t think Cox deserves to go out in style. I hope the last game that he manages the game ends with the Braves losing on a DP ground out by Chipper. That would be the best, and most fitting end to Cox’s career.

Yes he was won a lot of games, but what has he done with those wins? He won 14 straight division titles and only 1 WS title. That in itself is pathetic. If the Yankees or Red Sox had won 14 straight division titles, they would have won at least 8-10 WS titles no matter who their manager was. Why is that? Because the owners of those teams aren’t a bunch of tight wads, they actually spend the money to get the players that will help their club win titles.

I’d like to keep freeman too and Buckhead’s point about Adrian Gonzalez is true, i don’t see any reason why the Padres would sell him to a loser team like the Braves. Braves fans are used to thinking of us as buyers but we are really sellers now, we aren’t perennial contenders and haven’t been for 4 years.. Maybe Eric Heinske needs to be the everyday 1st baseman and Glaus sent packing, I knew his signing was going to be a disaster when i first heard about it. You’ve got an outfield that makes the past mediocre outfielders look like all-stars and a really soft up the middle combo in Prado and errorscobar i mean escobar, lol.

the only thing funny about this losing streak are all the shots people are throwing at the team.
maybe if enough people tell them they suck they will start playing simple fundamental baseball and hitting if that ever seems possible

It was so pathetic to hear Smoltz and Simpson defend TP the other night, saying it’s easy to blame the hitting coach. OF COURSE IT IS!! He SUCKS!! Every hitter gets worse after spending time in Atlanta. GET RID OF TERRY PENDLETON!!

this is not the 90’s. this is a team that has no pop, or fire!! ive watched every game this season and ill tell you that our bullpen is good, our starters for the most part keep us in games. even our bench is pretty decent. the issue is the starters in the infield and outfield. you have to sit chipper so he gets healthy. then you need to just release troy glaus, you can trade him for some bats and baseballs. put prado at first with hinske, put conrad at second, leave escobar at ss, he maybe lazy but hes our best option at that position. bring up freeman. i believe in letting him learn on the job(COULDNT BE ANY WORSE THAN GLAUS!) the outfield has to hold itself together till schafer is available near mid season!!! hes still got some worth, and could steal center field just by beaing healthy. heyward is a rookie and will go through learning curves all season. leave melkey in lf. i feel his about to come out of it. see what the lineup looks like in another month and see where it takes us. go braves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
