Having said all that Hanson his last two starts has done well after battling some wildness. In Fla and now against the Phils he has been wild and shown some control problems but never let it get out of control and battled to give us some innings and to limit the damage.

” Ithought about Escobar’s out at 2nd, too. But with Nate on deck swinging the bat the way he has been, I’d tell Sid Bream to try and leg out a double, too.” ray k.

Oh, I completely agree, and he SHOULD have had a double on that hit. Victorino made a great play cutting the ball off, stopped and threw a bullet.

But on the replay, it appeared as though Escobar didn’t bust it out of the box. He appeared to watch the ball for his first 3 or 4 steps. It’s a simple theory. Hit the ball, run your ass off and your 1B coach will tell you whether to go for 2B or not. It’s why they are there.

Doubles and Triples are usually a result of a guy running hard right out of the box. No way a guy like Escobar should have been thrown out on a ball that was hit that far in the gap. Add to that, he slid to soon.

Like I said before. I’ll take his mental lapses if he’s raking, because when he’s hitting the whole lineup will change it’s productivity, and after all, his hit made it 6-0 at the time. But at the time, I posted that I hoped it wouldn’t come back to haunt us.

Now that it’s 6-3, it just might. Philles have given the Braves many breaks today (along with the umpire). Can’t ease up on the gas with these guys. Gotta play hard from the get go until the 27th out is recorded.

Chipper looks smaller because he is crouching a little to see the ball longer–he is now part Chipper, part Knoblauch.

Glaus sticks the dagger into the Phils.

Phils get 3 runs to make it close. Glaus hits a bomb to center field to get the 3 runs right back.

Love these Braves.

Hinkse was for defensive purposes and Chipper was okay I think but he kept looking and messing with the palm of his hand so not sure.

The one thing I will say about Nate today is that he isn’t striking out which is an improvement…maybe today’s game will be rough having his new stance and will progress as he get’s accustomed to it

“Are all the Chipper haters quieted for a while? What is he, 7 for his last 12? with 7 RBI’s?”

I’ll speak for myself and nobody else, since I’ve been lumped in with the Chipper “haters”, though that’s not how I’d classify myself.

If Chipper starts hitting, it is nothing but a GREAT thing for this team. Period. But the fact remains, he looked completely lost for almost a month (and his power has been considerably minimized since mid-summer of last season).

All I ever wanted was him to be removed (even if only temporarily) from the 3-hole.

THERE’S THOSE 3 RUNS BACK!!!! TROOOOOOOOOOOY!!!!!

I’ve stated for a while that a team can survive without massive power numbers in the middle of the order, provided those guys get basehits with RISP.

But Heyward is a natural for the 3-spot in the order. But I also love him in the 2-hole (due to his legs), provided Chipper is hitting.

All this team needs, is for guys to be remotely close to what their careeer averages have been, and this team will score a TON of runs and be deep.

It just so happens that in April, 4-5 guys were well below their career averages, and the results were not pretty.

But if Chipper does what he’s been doing for the last week or so, I’m more than happy to have Heyward bat 2nd and Chipper bat 3rd.

Never stated other wise. Though I did state that this team wouldn’t make the playoffs if Chipper continued to struggle and remained in the 3-hole. Which I still stand by. :-)
