“Sending Teheran, at 21, back to Triple-A would not be the terrible thing some act like it would be. Far from it. Again, he just turned 21.”

Who are those “some” who act as if it would be a terrible thing to send Teheran back to Triple-A?

I would like to hear what these people may be thinking because I’m not sure why anyone would have problems sending a 21-year-old pitcher to Triple-A for some more seasoning, when the Braves have solid pitching depth at the major league level.

I’ve seen people comment on the blogs saying that they think it would be wasting their good arms to still have him, Delgado, and Vizcaino pitching in AAA.

I’d rather see Teheran and Delgado in AAA than in the bullpen. I’d rather see them back in AA than in the bullpen.

I’d rather see Diaz in a vendor’s unifor… oh… right… said I wasn’t going to pick on him anymore.

Be patient with me.

First action of spring training for Teheran and getting shelled not a big deal. He’s not spotting consistently yet and suffered for it but he will get better as he progresses. And I totally agree with DOB, let him work at least another 1/2 season in AAA at his craft. His stuff is very good but that’s not always enough vs. MLB hitters.

I switched over to the Houston broadcast just to see if they were giving any good inside info on the Astros. Yikes….I feel for Houston fans having to listen to that radio team. Their scouting report on Lowrie, “He’ll give you all he’s got”. Oh, and they mentioned that he’s a switch hitter. Thanks guys!

did I get that right?

I think you were fine on your panic component, but just a touch lacking on the anger component. And with it being ST, we really didn’t get to see you trot out your give-up component (kinda like a third pitch, as it were).

Still, for the first week of March? I’d call it a good outing; gives you something to build on. And by Opening Day, I’d say you’ll be able to go nine, with plenty of doom-and-gloom to spare.

ncscoots-

I’ve got lots of doom & gloom locked up in the closet. I usually don’t let it out much, so it’s been piling up on me over the years. I have actually been thinking about selling some if you know anyone that might be interested. I can give them a good price…

I think whether a possibly future starting pitcher is better off in the major league bullpen or starting in the minors depends on the pitcher. I don’t think we can make the blanket statement that every pitcher would be any better (or any worse) off starting in the minors rather than relieving in the majors, or that starting in the minors would necessarily be better for the team.

I do suspect Teheran specifically would be better off starting in the minors.

Uggla was hitting bombs in BP over that LF wall, and hit one to same spot off lefty Cedeno on 2-2 pitch. No doubter. 3-2 Braves lead

I think there are some cases in which it is good for the pitcher and the team for the pitcher to pitch out of the bullpen for a year or two; or at least it does no harm for the pitcher to come out of the bullpen.

Roman Gal

Can anyone who’s there tell if the strike-zone is being called wide? Just strange to see McCann, Hinske, and Heyward all called out looking at strikes.

Or am I just trying to read too much into the 3rd game of the spring, and 4th or 5th AB of the spring for those guys?
