DOB, what good does having 45 great pitchers (30 in A,AA,AAA) do for you when you have no CF and LF worth starting in the majors ? Ask Mr. Wren that !
October 27th, 20102:16 pm
Marquis Grissom needs to be bought back into the fold. Great coach, great motivator, and most of all a great pro. Oh by the way he’s from the darn city.
Tired Of It
October 27th, 20102:59 pm
You guys want the truth? Well here it comes! You’ve had no more than one black(african-american) player on the team for the last 6 years, most of those years there were none. Other teams are able to find those players; why not the braves? They(braves) don’t even keep the black latins in the orginization, they either trade or release them, because they don’t seem to want them here! Heyward was the only one on the team this year until the last mo. of the season, and D. Lee will not be returning, and mark my words; before Heyward gets a big contract here, he will be traded also. He(Heyward) will be the only one on the team next year also, at least until they rent a player for the final mo. of the season. And before anyone brings it up, no, i haven’t forgot about J.J., he won’t be around very much longer, it’s their(braves) track record.
October 27th, 20103:13 pm
Why not let Chipper play third and also be the hitting coach. You couldn’t find a better one
I also remember the incident involving Presley allegedly attacking his mother. According to archived articles on the WESTLAW NEWS database, the claimed incident took place on June 26, 1990 when Presley’s mother arrived at his apartment late in the evening. There was evidently an altercation, also involving Presley’s wife, culminating with Presley allegedly choking his mother. The mother ultimately decided against pressing charges and Presley was not indicted. It is disturbing, for sure. Does it disqualify him for the job if he has otherwise been a good citizen for the last 20 years? In my opinion, probably not, but it damn sure should be a question in his job interview.
October 27th, 20103:28 pm
here we go with stupid ideas let j smoltz or tommy galvine due it. u do not bring in people with bad records and i just say this if we get above last place next yr we be lucky. i did say b4 be suprise if our new mgr freddie last year and half. who cares what chipper wants he needs retire or sit the bench.
October 27th, 20103:30 pm
no Retired PGA tour players are swing coaches
Tired of It, please take that tired act somewhere else. We’re not above stupidity on this blog, apparently, but we ARE above racism. Go away.
JamieJay, there’s always the glass half full way to look at that incident. At least he’ll teach an aggressive and decisive approach.
October 27th, 20103:33 pm
Chipper Jones as a Player/Coach should be the Hitting Coach for the Atlanta Braves. Hire someone with a track record of actually getting hits with a career 300 batting average to be the batting instructor. The Braves need to learn how to field the ball a lot better at all positions. Way too many errors in 2010. Way, way, way too many for professional MLB. This is not Richmond or Gwinnett.
October 27th, 20103:40 pm
What about Tony Gwen.
Joe Simpson the Great
The players make enough money let them hire their own hitting coaches.
October 27th, 20103:46 pm
Any rumors out there in Braves land on whether a position change is in the works for Lipka and Mycal Jones. Seems like both would profile at 2b or cf, with Jones being a possible candidate to be on the fasttrack with a position change.
Mr. Turnip-Green Jeans
October 27th, 20103:52 pm
I think we shoulda hired a “professional hitter,” in the mold of a Loaf, or a Greg Norton.
I’m assuming Brad Komminsk was unavailable?
Ackshully, Don Baylor was my choice. Folks batting under his tutelage prolly feel like they’re swinging for their lives. Fear might even convince Nate to stop swinging for the fences. Just kidding, but I do think he’s as good a choice as there WAS, too bad he’s already gone.
I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’m mildly disappointed with the Elvis pick, if finalized. Just a feeling in my gut, nothing more.
Maybe a guy who wasn’t a great hitter could know more than somebody who was. To a great hitter, more things might come naturally/more easily, he may not need as much instruction. A lesser hitter, always trying to improve, always tinkering, trying anything/everything during struggles to keep his head above water. The latter might be the one to look to for different ideas, different approaches.
Take J-Hey; there not gonna do a radical makeover of his swing, EVER.
Brooks Conrad? Bet he’s seen (tried) every hitting philosophy known to humankind. He had to struggle year, after year, after year, to even get a smell. He’s seen it ALL hitting-wise.
Who (after Heyward has played 15-years) would make the better hitting coach of the two?
My rationalizing has totally relieved the feeling in my gut. Lets give Elvis a shot!
how about clarence jones…….
October 27th, 20103:59 pm
how about clarence jones…….”
Is he still with us?
October 27th, 20104:00 pm
Or, among the living?
October 27th, 20104:01 pm
Nobody’s mentioned Jeff Blauser or Ozzie Virgil, Jr.
October 27th, 20104:04 pm
You’re right, milesarcher33, they sucked to a sufficient degree as hitters to make fine batting coaches.
NEW CARS: Both Lipka and M. Jones could be candidates for move to outfield in future, but not yet.
October 27th, 20104:07 pm
I got two words for you….Rufino Linares !
October 27th, 20104:16 pm
Fredi is a smart guy who knows what he’s doing. The Marlins had some great hitters under Pres including Ramirez, Uggla, Cantu, Ross, Cabrera and many, many more. My point: support the manager by supporting Presley. They’ll do some great things for the Braves. Incidentally, Presley is NO relation to Elvis. I thought that was funny when I read it.
October 27th, 20104:18 pm
Is Tony Gwynn Sr. being interviewed? He is a minor league coach currently. I’m sure he would love to be back up in the Bigs if given the opportunity. Thoughts?
If Fredi thought Pressley was a bad hitting coach he would not be considering him. To have had Pressley and want him again must prove something to all of us who don’t know how good of a hitting coach he is.
October 27th, 20104:21 pm
What about Fred McGriff? He was always a real student of hitting.
October 27th, 20104:24 pm
I hate to see Hubbard go. Hard to believe there is not a position for him in the organization. Maybe a roving minor league instructor.

October 26th, 2010
foultip, very good idea. Also dont forget we have Chipper on the bench collecting about 13mil. Lets get our money out of that and have him be a player-hitting coach. I am sure he knows how to turn on a DVD player as well. if he hits .250 but somehow gets Heyward hitting like a young Chipper it will be a good investment.
Chipper is a switch hitter, awesome idea!
October 27th, 20104:32 pm
The best way to save money is hire Rick Camp to be pitching and hitting coach.
October 27th, 20104:43 pm
How does TP keep his job at all? Would he have been able to work with Marcus or Kelly to get better in the field. TP is a nice guy but he should not be on the staff. Glenn Hubbard should still be there.
October 27th, 20104:46 pm
We are hiring the wrong Presley to be the batting coach. They need to hire Elvis Presley for the job. The king is been dead for so long that he may relate better with the corpses of the Atlanta Braves line up. Just saying!
October 27th, 20104:49 pm
How about we go get some players who can hit and field and don’t need to be platooned?That’s the starting point,not the hitting coach. I know the Braves are working within certain payroll parameters, but coaches need talent to work with. That said, we shouldn’t forget this flawed team won 91 games.
October 27th, 20104:57 pm
we run this country,tony gwynn sr is not a minor league coach, he is a college coach at san diego state university
October 27th, 20104:59 pm
You don’t have to have been a great hitter to be a good hitting coach. You aren’t trying to teach them your swing but seeing the holes in the player’s swing and correcting that hole. I think TP was a good hitter but just not a good coach.
October 27th, 20105:15 pm
In 1991 TP replaced Presley as the Braves starting 3rd basemen. Now it’s Presley’s turn to replace TP.
In Fredi I Trust
October 27th, 20105:19 pm
For those wondering why Pendelton was kept on this staff, its real simple. He and Fredi Gonzalez are close friends. I believe one gave the other a new Harley Davidson a few years back. On that decision alone it was about friendship and not what was right, or deserving.
I guess for me as long as TP didn’t get the managers job I am at peace. I highly doubt he can mess up the 1st base coach/ infield coach like he did being the hitting coach. That is the least of the Braves worries going into next season.
The more pressing needs are finding a true power hitting OF, hope that CJ returns to form and can stay healthy, rid this team of useless players just taking up a roster spot, and hoping like heck that Jurrgens, and Hanson can return to previous form. If that all happens, I like the Braves chances next season.
October 27th, 20105:42 pm
Remember Bobby’s storied playing career with the Yanks? Or LaRussa’s career as a player? Or Leo Mazzonne’s career as a pitcher? No? Didn’t think so. The best coaches are very rarely the most accomplished players.
October 27th, 20105:54 pm
Major league hitters know how to hit otherwise they would be selling insurance. The value of a hitting coach is to develop a philosophy and approach that can be utilized consistantly to assist the batter in his one on one battle with the pitcher. Chipper is an example of a hitter with a plan, approach and philosophy for every at bat. Rick Ankiel is an example of a hitter who’s appoach is see the ball & swing as hard as he can, and he will not change regardless of the hitting coach. Same for Jeff Francour.
October 27th, 20105:56 pm
It really doesn’t matter who the hitting coach is, if he doesn’t have hitters to coach. The Braves lineup is anemic with the exception of McCann, Prado, Infante, and Heyward. A hitting coach is only as good as his hitters. Someone mentioned Chipper’s dad….was Chipper’s dad coaching him last year when he was batting in the .240’s most of the year? Is a new hitting coach going to turn the post-steroid McClouth into a .300 hitter? Or maybe he’s going to teach the post-hgh Ankiel to make contact and layoff of high fastballs. A hitting coach is only as good as his talent. The braves couldn’t hit consistently because they had career inconsistent hitters through out their lineup. I can care less who the new hitting coach will be. I’m more concerned with who the 2 new outfielders will be.
October 27th, 20106:03 pm
Why should Hubbard still be here? What did he do that deserved him not being dismissed? I know that he worked with the infielders on fielding…hmmmm! How did that work out this past year? Seems like we can point the finger at TP for coaching minor league hitters, but no one wants to mention Hubbard’s name for the atrocious defense played in the infield.
October 27th, 20106:06 pm
During one NLCS telecast one of the commentators showed with film proof that the SF catcher (ROY) was a strict lowball hitter. If he went after any high stuff he flailed. Just sort of a hitting coach kind of observation. Maybe we could hire that commentator.
October 27th, 20106:46 pm
To the grinch…, of course u don’t want to address it, because it’s true, and u(and others) can’t handle the truth. But the truth doesn’t stop u(and others) for flat out lying about T.P., while glorifying all these scrubs the Braves keep foisting off as major leage players. Mccann hasn’t upped his level of play(sos every year), Chipper hasn’t done anything in years, and both these guys are so-called stars of the team with their fathers as their personal hiting coaches. When’s the last time either of these guys hit at least 25 horme runs in a year or drove in 100 runs??? The outfield has been an all-scrub outfield for the last 6 or 7 years, and the infielders probably lead the nl in errors every year, under Hubbards’ tutelage, but you people continue to try and blame everything on Pendleton, and if anyone calls you out about it, you guys try and poo pah it. typical, typical, typical! The 2 main studs get payed 8-13 mill each per year, and can’t hit 30 homers or drive in 100 runs. they barely post those nos between the 2 of them, and they’re the 3-4 hitters in the line-up. That’s a lot value on the hoof for about 21 million dollars.
October 27th, 20106:51 pm
Billionaire would like to see Otis and his bag of dust come back as hitting coach. I’ll even throw in brother Donell Nixon to work the Cartoon Network booth.
October 27th, 20107:04 pm
Tired, unless Melky would shame George Hamilton into a graveyard, I don’t believe for a minute he was a white dude.
If you think Heyward is going ANYWHERE, EVER, you are monumentally mistaken — and quite probably and idiot..
October 27th, 20107:23 pm
“If Fredi thought Pressley was a bad hitting coach he would not be considering him. To have had Pressley and want him again must prove something to all of us who don’t know how good of a hitting coach he is.”
This makes a Hell of a lotta sense. Why wouldn’t Fredi want to put himself in the best position to succeed? He’s taken what must be one of the most enviable managerial positions in baseball. He’s following a legend in a great organisation. I think those things would weigh heavy on his mind. I believe he’ll hire the best hitting coach available, and for all we know, it’s JP.
October 27th, 20107:26 pm
How can a loser player help anyone hit when he couldn’t do it himself?
October 27th, 20107:32 pm
Jim aint Elvis’s bro. Terry had a better mlb ba than jim.

Load them up and take them over the great East Cobb program. That is where all the stars are made if you listen to them. Who needs a hitting coach when you have East Cobb
October 27th, 20108:23 pm
In Freddi I Trust,
That was Brian Jordan who gave Freddi the Harley in exchange for the number Freddi was wearing , the second time brian was with the Bravos
October 27th, 20108:27 pm
I don’t know any of their names,but i would look in to the Angels coaching staff. Not just for the hitting instuctor. Mike S. preaches fundamentals this attitude rubs off on people and lets face the Bravos need a whole lot of rubbing! just my opinoin.
October 27th, 20108:29 pm
Man those ranger are having fun………this is looking like a sweep already.
October 27th, 20109:11 pm
Man is Buster Posey something else. Clean cut kid that plays the game the right way and looks right in doing it. Man he is something that sports needs.
October 27th, 20109:44 pm
charlie lau was one of the greatest hitting coaches of all time he was not a great hitter as a player
October 27th, 201010:05 pm
Mr. Turnip-Green Jeans@7:04pm…, Heyward was a rookie this year so he had to spout the company line, but wait until he matures a little bit and starts to develop his own ideas, digresses a little from the co line, and he’ll be gone faster than David Justice. All he did(Justice) was tell the truth as he saw it, and he was ran out of atlanta in a new york second. If Justice had been allowed to flourish here, he would have been the Braves best 1st baseman ever, except he wouldn’t muzzle himself. Instead he helped other teams win world series.
October 28th, 20101:21 am
“intelligent incites to the local sports world” You meant INSIGHTS, but your spelling error actually makes sense. There are a lot of intelligent posters on this board who get a mighty big laugh inciting the dummies.

Barry Bonds wants to be a hitting coach. I know this would be controversial for the Braves but Bonds was a great hitter as well. PEDs didn’t teach Bonds how to hit, he could already do that. Thoughts?
Atlanta braves fan of south
October 28th, 20108:11 am
Do any of you think Bobby cox would be interested in being a hitting coach for the braves ? That would be cool for him to the be hitting instructor and the new manager . It would be like keeping it all in the family . No one ever leaves they just move to a new role .
I always would like to say the Braves season was the best season in 3 years .

October 28th, 20108:12 am
All these unfounded complaints about Jim Pressley not being a good hitter, you guys just don’t know your baseball history. JP was quite the “slugger” his one year in Atlanta, although I have to admit that he may not have used his bat(but he may have), when he slugged his own mother and was charged with domestic abuse. It was this slugging ability that landed him on my ALL-TIME WORST ATLANTA BRAVES TEAM. If the team’s hitting issues are caused by problems stemming from their mom, then JP is the hitting instuctor we’ve been looking for. (I guess not all Pressleys love their momma)
October 28th, 20108:18 am
Just a minute here. This is getting really foolish.
October 28th, 20108:19 am
Joe Torre played for the Atlanta braves and was the Manager for the Braves in the 1980s . why not ask him to be the Hitting coach ?
October 28th, 20108:24 am
Real smart Doc Holiday “Rangers having fun looking like a sweep already”. Rangers lost game 1.
The job of the hitting coach is to look at film and help correct timing,stance,balance of hitters when they go into slumps. TP is too stupid to do this and that’s why McOut,Ankiel,Glaus,and even Heyward went into long slumps. You would think TP could eat sunflower seeds and watch film of hitters at the same time. I guess that’s asking too much of the former MVP ?
October 28th, 20108:25 am
A hitting coach must be someone who can teach hitters when to swing . Like ball 1 , ball 2 , then green light baby , there it goes to deep right field , back back back .Home run . Braves lead 12 to nothing . AND its a shutout . that kind of games .
October 28th, 20108:32 am
I never got your answer DOB about having no CF and LF but having 30 pitchers down in the minors that aren’t contributing to the Braves MLB team. So the thinking is stockpile pitchers in the minors and have sorry CF & LF ? Reeeeeeealy smart right thar…
October 28th, 20108:34 am
I’d do whatever it took to sign Carl Crawford as my CF. But the Braves will use patchwork McOut & Ankiel to cover CF and hit .225 collectively.
October 28th, 20108:43 am
Some hitting coaches and managers were stars (Dusty Baker,Joe Torre,Lou Pineilla,Don Baylor,Don Mattingly,Mark McGwire) and some were sorry players (LaRussa,Cox,Hriniak,Scioscia,etc.) but the bottomline is if the guy was a star hitter then he knows how to hit without question. Whether he can teach others is THE question. But a good hitter would have an edge over a .200 hitter any day in techniques.
October 28th, 20109:18 am
Barry Bond’s just said he wants to be a hitting coach. Just sayin’
October 28th, 20109:21 am
being a good hitter does not mean your a good teacher. Teaching is a gift
October 28th, 20109:33 am
Hit A Single @ 0911:
You just got scratched off Tired Of Its Christmas list.
And….I wish the Braves would hire John Kruk in any capacity. Bench clown, philosopher, etc.
October 28th, 20109:40 am
ummm Presley couldn’t hit when he was a player
October 28th, 20109:52 am
Uh, Barry Bonds?
October 28th, 201010:12 am
He!! no to Bond!!!!!!!!1
October 28th, 201010:13 am
GREG WALKER from White Sox for hitting coach………………………………..
In Frdi I trust
October 28th, 201010:37 am
THANKS MATT W</strong?
I thought it was TP that gave the Harley to Fredi, or the other way around. Now that you said it was Brian Jordan that gave Fredi one, I remember that. Thanks man.
October 28th, 201011:10 am
Why not Barry Bonds, He can hitt better than anyone I know of,If the Cards can hire Mcguire then whats wrong with trying Bonds?
October 28th, 201011:11 am
Hell yes to Bonds!!!!!
October 28th, 201012:13 pm
well it took you idiots exacly one blog to start on cox’s replacement i figured first day of st but i underestimate the idocy lol
October 28th, 201012:16 pm
and dont forget chippers got that dislocate eyebrow that effects his swing from the right side lol
October 28th, 201012:24 pm
pedeltons dignity walked off the field with him the day in philly that glavine wouldent throw at the murph since that day ive detetested the man and all he stands for good ridence hope you end up wiping counters at wendys lol
October 28th, 201012:30 pm
hAL you need help.You make no sense with your idiotic rambles!
October 28th, 201012:48 pm
Get your facts straight. Pendleton walked off the field when Marvin Freeman wouldn’t hit Tim Belcher of the Reds after Belcher had drilled 2 Braves in the previous inning. TP said if his pitchers wasn’t going to protect their players, he wasn’t going to field for them. It was unprofessional but it sent a message to the team to grow some balls. So, Hal i guess you detest a man for an event that never happened. Idiot!
And by the way, Glavine did throw at Murphy after Roger McDowell hit Otis Nixon in the previous inning.
October 28th, 201012:54 pm
Thank you Fredi Gonzalez for getting rid of our 1st base/infield coach. Our infield defense was horrible. Maybe our new 1st base coach will help improve our defense since TP was a much better fielder than Hubbard.
October 28th, 20102:08 pm
Found this about Presley’s attack on his Mom in 1990:
Article: Mom defends Presley
Article from:Chicago Sun-Times
Article date:June 30, 1990
PENSACOLA, Fla. The mother of Atlanta Braves player Jim Presley is now defending her son against battery charges she filed against him, saying the incident was caused by differences between the third baseman and his wife.
“Jimmy’s just a different person when the three of us are together,” Lucinda Brazel told the Pensacola News Journal. “She doesn’t like me when I’m around.”
Well I hope things got worked out. Funny how the Braves shun negative actions with players but look the other way when a manager abuses his wife or a potential coach abused his Mom.
October 28th, 20102:39 pm
Early in September, when the Braves played the Marlins, the position player starters for the
Braves had 257 BA; while the Marlins had a 275 BA. Which tells me the Marlins Hitting
coach was doing something right??
what a joke
October 28th, 20102:46 pm
Chuck , Bond would be great if he put all the players on his secret drugs. (Braves would knock the fences down) Hell no to BOND…………..
October 28th, 20102:53 pm
abllump…no it tells u that the Marlin players were better hitters. The Coach can teach and coach but u got to has some ability to go with it. Everyone can’t pitch…run..steal..throw..hit… they have got to have the talent, ability desire etc to get better. The Best coach in the world can’t make everyone hit!
October 28th, 20104:20 pm
I know you just fired me, but i’m a .244 lifetime hitter. I think i’ll make a great hitting coach.
October 28th, 20107:46 pm
I think Larry Parrish would make a great hitting coach for the Braves.
Former Cox Player
October 28th, 20109:34 pm
Joe Simpson for HC, Rufino Linares is in baseball heaven, maybe Brian Jordan deserves a political favor
October 28th, 20109:43 pm
I’m still waiting for an explaination why Hubbard wasn’t offered a job in the organization. It’s fine for a new manager to want his own people, but I can’t believe Hubby wasn’t offered a job somewhere in the organization.
Is that any way to treat a life long Brave ?
October 28th, 201010:51 pm
MLB Trade Rumors said the Braves signed Beau Tolbert, a power hitter……….
October 29th, 20101:59 am
I’d call the move from Teddy Pendergrass to Elvis Presley a definite upgrade.
October 29th, 20104:35 am
…… Why not to interview CHRIS CHAMBLISS as a hitting coach? He is the winner of October in te mid 1970s, former Braves 1st baseman 1980-86,former Yankees hitting coach in 1996-00….. Did you know Yankees batting average boosted every year star like Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, ect….. Chambliss is one of the best choice for the Braves.
October 29th, 20107:50 am
The Atlanta area has an abundance of self proclaimed experts on playing, managing, and coaching. Problem here is that all the experts, that post here, have never played, managed or coached baseball at any level and it shows when reading these ignorant posts.
These coaches are hired as supportive help. The players know how to pitch or hit when they reach the majors. Baseball is a game of adjustments and the coaches are on board to help when needed, not teach.
October 29th, 20108:16 am
All I know is that I hope the Giants sweep the Rangers now if for no other reason I want the offseason to officially begin. I want to see who we end up with as our HC, and I want to see who we target for our big bat in the OF, and I want to see what players we dump.
That all right there will tell me all I need to know, and help me in the process to decide whether I will be spending the big money on the Extra Innings package next year, or if I will be saving that money. One thing is for certain, I am tired of wasting my hard earned money watching these grown men playing a kid’s game fall on their faces year after year.

Billy—Help when needed but not TEACHING—
How stupid do U get? Teaching is everyday process from coaches and players etc..u never stop learning and teaching…WAKE Up and learn something.
U sound like No-Bama talking to the US Citizens…….
October 29th, 201011:05 am
“what a joke” you are now the poster child on this blog for the most ignorant poster award. And do not be so lazy that you can’t add a Y and an O to your U. You seemed old enough to spell out all your other words.
Giving advice and teaching are not the same. Now, let me give you some advice. Pick a subject you know something about before you criticize someone. Now, let me teach you something. Major league baseball hitting coaches are not hired to teach major league hitters how to hit. Major league hitters advance to the major league level because they have excelled in many ares of hitting during their rise to the major league level.
October 29th, 201011:26 am
Good Grief, there are some stupid comments on this blog (and others). People want to crucify a new hitting coach for not having a better career himself – I guess they want TP to remain? After all, he had a better career avg than Presley. Others are going off the deep end dredging up 20 year old stories that they don’t have all the info on in order to attempt to make the new coach look bad. Add in that a lone gunman trying to stir in some good old racial hatred by just flat out lying and making stuff up as he goes and then changing tactics when faced with some actual facts.
Nothing like simply being anti-Braves, and whining and crying incessently about every little move or non-move. Don’t ever give anyone a chance, try to destroy them before they even get a chance. Any player the Braves get this winter should immediately come into your target sights as a complete loser who doesn’t deserve to be a waterboy much less a player.
Those of you who are so much smarter than everyone else and come on here to pronounce from the mountaintop that this person or that person will definitely fail only accomplish two things. One – you make yourselves look foolish. Two – you remind me of all the times you (many of you are the same people) came in here and “pronounced” that the Braves would never make the playoffs, then that the Phillies and Yankees would be in the Series, then…you get the drift. Or you would, if you have any common sense.
If you dislike the Braves that much, the nearest site for the Mets or Phils is just one click away. Don’t let us hold you back.
