Sherill is insurance at closer if the young guys fail.
Its a shame that Billy Wagner retired and he still had dominant stuff. Unlike Brett Favre that keeps playing when he’s lost several steps.

Good move on Sherrill. It protects O’Flaherty in the chess matches.

Be sure to check out J. Roddy Walston & The Business’ self titled release before you make out your top 50 list…even if you only listen to it once I can’t imagine it not making your list. They sound like what would happen if the members of AC/DC asked Jerry Lee Lewis to form a Queen cover band with them, but in the best possible way. Enjoy it.

Who is going to relay the throws from Damon????
December 12th, 201010:44 am
Can’t believe what the Nats are forking out for Werth. He ain’t Werth that much.
December 12th, 201010:47 am
What do I want for Christmas? A CF that can hit.
December 12th, 201010:48 am
Any takers ? I’ve got McLouth hitting .200 7 40 if he plays most of the year. I’ll give $1 for every BA point,homerun or rbi over my numbers and you give me $1 for every point under numbers stated. And you give me $100 if he gets benched and I’ll give you $100 if he plays in 150 games. Any takers ???

David: How come Fredi not return my phone calls?
December 12th, 201010:59 am
Skeezix: If all Braves fans are good boys and girls, I’ll see if I can find a new CF for the Braves.

HO_HO_HO_ Schafer is here…………..
December 12th, 20103:36 pm
hey robdawg08 prorate injuries or a trade from the 150 games and you have a taker. You can also add a zero to that $1 if you’d like.

Bobby- Isn’t Cain a Georgia Boy. I really think this kid would make a “Quick” impact to the team. I’ve kind of lost it for the likes of McLouth and Schafer. As much as I’ve lived the “Braves” world…I think it is health for Freddi to bring in some fresh hands. This is something that could not be done with Mr. Cox at the helm. Bobby Cox was the heart of our team but it is time for a tranfusion of new blood and styles.
December 12th, 20109:44 pm
Cain is from Valdosta Ga. about 8 or 10 miles from the JD Drew Boys. Yes I agree on the new blood and Fredi will want his own system. Many don’t agree but each to their opinion. Cain would be super. Braves would have him for 5 years at a good price. Prado, J-Hey and Cain..wow!

Baby its cold outside…………………….
December 13th, 201010:28 am
McLouth will prove everyone wrong. All I want for xmas is Ted Turner buy back Atlanta Braves.
December 13th, 201011:25 am
Shafer was not a flash in the pan. The man has some real talent. I think my swing would have developed a pretty big hole too if I had broken my wrist.
December 13th, 201011:27 am
I loved Ted when he owned the Braves and would love for a free spending owner to step up, but Ted has gone beyond the deep end so far that he can’t even see the edge of sanity. No way I would want him owning the Braves again.
December 13th, 201012:01 pm
Starters look good, the bullpen looks good, infield looks good and the outfield looks good except for that glaring hold in center. All pray for Schafer to return to the form he once exhibited.
December 13th, 201012:32 pm
eskippy, you are 1,000 different names on here. I want to deal with a real person using their real name.
December 13th, 20101:30 pm
robdawg08, I’ve only commented on here about three times in my life except for the occasional 1 if I happen to see a new blog. I still think you are way off on McLouth’s numbers, and I am still a taker.
December 13th, 20102:12 pm
Okay big boy, post your email address then. I’ve been robdawg08 since 2008. While you change names every other minute. Again, you are fooling no one.
December 13th, 20103:30 pm
you put out the challenge and someone called you on it. Now you are placing new caveats out there (saying you only deal with people using real names while posting as robdawg08 is funny, btw). Go ahead and man up. If he is a namechanger like you say, and you can’t track him down, you won’t have to pay him. Or you won’t be able to collect. Either way, you never expected anyone to seriously call you on it.

“Ted has gone beyond the deep end so far that he can’t even see the edge of sanity. No way I would want him owning the Braves again.” ramblingman
Dude I wouldn’t care if Ted was left wing, chicken wing, or broken wing…….if he would spend his money like he did in the day (p.s. he was just as crazy then) we wouldn’t have to worry about payroll restrictions. That being said, I still think there needs to be a salary cap.
December 13th, 20103:39 pm
why do you guys pay any attention to Trolls….don’t pay them ANY attention and the children quietly go away.

DOB “If McLouth sputters, the Braves need Plan B.”
Hope Plan B is cranked and warming-up. I think it is, it’s gonna be Schafer, and he’s gonna feed his detractors tons of crow..
December 13th, 20105:06 pm
New Braves blog please with new info. ? Anybody ? Buehler ?
December 13th, 20105:08 pm
And robdawg08, that’s annoying.
December 13th, 20105:12 pm
Paddy, I am afraid if Ted bought the Braves again, he’d have them eating buffalo burgers, make them sign contracts restricting them to one child each, and he would turn off the lights at 10 pm every night to save energy…even if it was in the middle of the 8th inning.
December 14th, 20108:14 am
After the news of last night, I’m sorry but we’re playing for the wild card in 2011
December 18th, 20103:36 pm
For those ragging on Chipper about his injury problems the last 2 years, he led the team in games played 2 years ago with 143 a year after winning the batting title… his injury last year was a bit of a fluke on a jumping fade away throw to first base.
McLouth might be a lost cause at this point. It’s been over two years since he has been able to hit the ball. While he’s never really been able to hit all that much, he has at least been able to draw the occassional walk and keep is OBP around .350. That’s the real issue. If he could get his OBP back up and provide the occassional HR out of the 7th or 8th spot in the lineup, he would be fine. Carl Crawford was really the PERFECT fit for the Braves… a leadoff hitting LF.
Schafer is going to re-open some eyes this year. Strength in your wrists is so important for a hitter and the surgery he had typically requires 12-14 months for full recovery. You see top prospects tear up minor league hitting all the time but never be able to make the adjustment in the majors. When they get sent down, they usually go back to hitting minor league pitching. They don’t just stop being able to hit at all levels unless there is some reason, in his case, an injury.
