…and when the braves score five or more in a game, they’re 17-0. the pitching hasn’t quite lived up to its pre-season billing, but it’s been pretty darned good.

Chin, that’s because no one thought Lowe would be this bad. Everyone else is exactly what we thought they would be.

They need those innings to happen early in the game, and protect their starter. Look at Hanson, and Kawakami. Hanson has lost games for lack of run support. Kawakami can’t get any. Those innings gotta happen early in the game! Go #Braves!

I agree the pitching on this team is exactly what we thought it’d be. Lowe has given up 5 or more runs THREE times this year. KK and JJ has given up 5 runs ONCE this year but who hasn’t won a game?

They actually had a six-run inning twice on Opening Day (1st and 7th) so make that 6 times with 6 or more runs in one inning.

id say hanson has disapointed he soo reinds me of the head case that was a young imature smoltz and his hype was a 97 to 100 fastball all im seeing on tv is 89 to 93 major league ave and he may as well not have a breaking ball cant throw it for strikes anyways not that mcant would be smart enough to call it his therory is a fastball is easy to catch ..but its also easy for hitters lol

hey, hal, how about you don’t post anything anymore until you learn how to spell. Hanson hasn’t been a disappointment, he’s kept the Braves in every game, but one. And he has touched up to 97 mph on the radar gun in a few games and in those games his fastball velocity ranged from 90-97 mph. What the hell have you been watching?

I’m not worried about the pitching so much as the hitting. The pitching will come around, but the hitting def goes in spurts.

Honestly, Chipper needs to suck it up and use a lighter weight bat. He’s really slow on his swing and not driving the ball at all.

I think Heyward could scoot in a little bit more towards the plate, seems like a lot of the outside pitches he makes contact with that aren’t bullets in the hole are weak dribblers because he stands so far off the plate.

Nothing major, just an inch or two closer to the plate I think might help.

Hanson is so far ahead of Smoltz at the 1 year mark Hal. And right now we are in the thick of things, June has always been our worst month. Hopefully we had it in April this time.

KK gave up 5 runs once, and besides that it has been 2,4,3,4,3,3,0,3

KK’s run support season: 2, 0, 2, 0, 2, 3, 0, 4, and now, 2

the 5 era is because he can’t go past the sixth inning. Some of his runs come in because our bullpen can’t hold the the runners they inherit.

Please tell me why KK has been terrible.

oh yeah, KK hasn’t won a game and that is all that matters.

If wins is all that matters, then Lowe (6 wins) is better than Hudson, Lincecum, Carpenter, Josh Johnson – who all have 5 wins. And we’d have to trade Hanson because that bum only has 4 wins.

Maybe we can trade Hanson for Calos Silva and his 6 wins because if wins is all that matters, it makes sense.

If wins is all that matters, we’d have to drop JJ and KK because nobody would want them. I mean why would you want a pitcher who can’t win a game by himself in a team sport.

This is the NL where the pitcher gets to hit, so KK and JJ should be jacking homeruns to get himself run support.

Offense stinks again this year. Thanks Terry.
