Hudson expects to throw batting practice in 5-6 days, threw two bullpens in past three days with no problems. He’s progressing fairly rapidly now, could possibly get in a game before spring training is over. He’ll need five or six starts, which will serve as his spring training, and will probably make those at Gwinnett unless they’re out of town and Rome is playing at home, in which case could make one there.

It’s a long season, and there’s no need to get up in arms right now.
There will be plenty of time between now and October to lay down and get run over by a lesser team on the Road to Obscurity.
March 17th, 201211:46 am
Sorry It got political, last night…I just don’t Like Schafer…and people have made excuses for him (from 2009-2011) as if he was Andruw-esque…? I don’t get it?
And BTW there was a Facebook request sent last night sent to FSS (FoxSportsSouth) as to what the Batter Intros should and will be at the Ted…???
You can’t touch Chippers “Crazy Train” Intro nor J-Hey’s A.S.A.P. Intro, That junk Bumpin!
March 17th, 201211:49 am
Didn’t catch any of the discussion last night, but I guess I’d count myself as one of the “believers” in Schafer’s defense.
That being said, he couldn’t carry Andruw’s cleats. Not even close to the same class.
this blog sure attracts some serious complainers, doesn’t it?
March 17th, 201211:50 am
Didn’t Freeman and McCann work out together over the off-season? Looks like they both were lifting lots of cheeseburgers. Just saying.
March 17th, 201211:56 am
Would someone please show me where I defended or made excuses for Jordan Schafer? Please…
March 17th, 201211:58 am
I was Never a Fan of Schafer because of all the hype he got on here after the 1st week of 2009 not to mention him getting busted for PED’s which people shrugg off.,..
I was ripping him last night about how he got off easy for the pot and it turned political and there are people who still love him…it is what it is…
March 17th, 201211:59 am
That’s all muscle baby….all muscle. The jerseys are deceiving you.
More than you could ever imagine. Some people just live to complain, whine, and b!tch no matter what and they all come here to do it.
March 17th, 201212:00 pm
S/O to Brava
Whats Happening Chief!
I’m suprised u werent on here last night…
March 17th, 201212:01 pm
LJ – Serious? World Class is more like it.
March 17th, 201212:03 pm
Or, to frame it more in baseball terminology – A League of Their Own.
March 17th, 201212:04 pm
Chief Knockahoma… I thought you retired to the reservation. Maybe you should.
March 17th, 201212:05 pm
“More than you could ever imagine. Some people just live to complain, whine, and b!tch no matter what and they all come here to do it.”
You Just Watch! lol
It gets Better during the season when P..!entz and others come on who still cant get over the collapse like myself
March 17th, 201212:06 pm
Hey, T. I was watching the game last night (actually watched it twice). Didn’t know how they’d do, so didn’t want to get on here and read a lot of whining. Seems they might be coming out of the funk. Hope so, anyway. If they start winning a little, I might try braving the in-game blogs.
March 17th, 201212:07 pm
New Year…new season. Forgive and forget and just look to the future…believe. It was tough for me to watch as well but they were a young team and hopefully they learned from it. Redemption starts this April.
March 17th, 201212:09 pm
Jeff R – He doesn’t sound all that reserved to me.
March 17th, 201212:10 pm
BravePack, nah, dude that is not muscle. Those two guys have put on a few pounds. Not so worried about B-Mac because he usually carries a few extra pounds anyway, but I don’t think it’s a good thing with Freddie. He’s already not the fastest guy on the basepaths and the extra weight isn’t going to make him any faster.
March 17th, 201212:11 pm
Interesting overnight on the ole blog.
March 17th, 201212:12 pm
It’s all over the internet. I think it’s always been going on, it’s just now that instead of grumbling complaints about Fredi to your wife, there’s millions of open forums to do it
Well, whatever Freeman’s weight (or muscle), I’ve seen him go down and almost do a split reaching for Pastornicky throws this spring. It doen’t seem to be bothering him or hindering his play. Considering that most players actually lose a fair amount of weight during the season, I would imagine that many come to ST with a couple extra pounds on them. For a catcher, it might be necessary.
March 17th, 201212:15 pm
“He’s already not the fastest guy on the basepaths and the extra weight isn’t going to make him any faster.”
Co Sign…I just Hope That the extra weight That Fab 5 Freddie put on doesn’t make him less agile at first on the fielding plays…He was Roachy-esque last year with his D which saved a lot of errors and sved big inning which goes unnoticed in the box score as well as those turds on BSPN…
March 17th, 201212:16 pm
Lew, I personally liked the way BMac looked when he showed up to ST last season. He looked a lot healthier than I’d seen him in a while. This season, he just looks like he’s gotten back to normal. No big deal, really. I don’t like the way the extra weight looks on Freddie. It’s all around his middle.
March 17th, 201212:18 pm
[this blog sure attracts some serious complainers, doesn’t it?]
“It’s all over the internet. I think it’s always been going on, it’s just now that instead of grumbling complaints about Fredi to your wife, there’s millions of open forums to do it”
Co-Sign! For All the complainers on here who whine abt other posters who call out the team, we are easy: They should see the Phillies Forum on philly.com…It got so bad that their posters had to make separate sports websites . Ditto for the Red Sox’s forums…
March 17th, 201212:21 pm
T, I agree, or, as you’d say, Co Sign. He looks okay fielding from what I’ve seen so far. I’m just not a overall fan of heavy baseball players. That said, Jason looks awesome!
March 17th, 201212:23 pm
“I personally liked the way BMac looked when he showed up to ST last season. He looked a lot healthier than I’d seen him in a while. ”
I have no issues with B-Macc’s or Chippers Weight…When It gets Hot as Balls in a Month they will drop it off and it will turn into Muscle, Bank On It!
And Happy St Paddy’s Day To All (Except the people I have on Ignore)…! I’m Gonna Dress up as Money Mike From The Friday After Next…”Ya Know Micro-Mini-Pimp, Lucky Charms”
That grand salami last night was a thing of beauty. Too bad it wasn’t in a regular season game. Hopefully, there’s more where that came from.
March 17th, 201212:24 pm
Heat makes fat turn into muscle?
March 17th, 201212:26 pm
“T, I agree, or, as you’d say, Co Sign. He looks okay fielding from what I’ve seen so far. I’m just not a overall fan of heavy baseball players.”
So You Didn’t Get Turned on By Mark McGwire???
Because as Glavine and Maddux Said during the peak of the Roid era, “Chicks Dig The Longball”
love that commercial!
March 17th, 201212:27 pm
Yeah, I’m sure the heat and playing will take care of the extra pounds.
Happy St Paddy’s Day back atcha, T. Hope you have fun celebrating. My son started last night and I don’t expect to see him until tomorrow.
March 17th, 201212:28 pm
I never cared for McGwire. Don’t know if it was intuition, or what, but I never liked him for some reason.
March 17th, 201212:30 pm
Actually on that Chicks Dig The Longball commercial…
With The Glavinator being a hockey player…Glavine has the sweetest swing I have ever seen from a pitcher…Other than Huddy, our current pitchers need to take note because other than Huddy all our other pitchers don’t take pride in hitting like Maddux, Glavine and Smoltz did…
They don’t complain they would probably beating their wife or kicking the dog. Let them complain, makes them feel smart.
March 17th, 201212:31 pm
Heyward could be back to 2010 type numbers this year. that would be a big boost!
March 17th, 201212:32 pm
Love that commercial, too, T. Now, Glavine was a hottie, back in the day.
March 17th, 201212:34 pm
Yeah, that’s why I’m not a big fan of using the DH for all the ST games, T. The pitchers aren’t getting to practice at the plate during games.
March 17th, 201212:36 pm
I leave for ST Tuesday morning, Getting really excited.
March 17th, 201212:41 pm
Are you new to the Blog?
If So? Then Welcome!
I will Take you under my wing!
March 17th, 201212:43 pm
Brb in 20 Minutes, gotta run to Burger King for 2 triple stackers and fries…
I guess everyone is to egotistical to speak. Bye.
March 17th, 201212:45 pm
Sorry Tomahawkin didnot see your post. Just a friend. Go braves
March 17th, 201212:49 pm
Okay, now I’m skeptical
March 17th, 201212:50 pm
Hi, everyone! Ready for gametime? I am. Gotta deal wth laundry before the game comes on so BRB.
March 17th, 201212:51 pm
Where are you from, Raquel?
March 17th, 201212:54 pm
Morning! How are you?
March 17th, 201212:56 pm
Kinda ticked, cabravesfan. When I have $$, I can’t find what I want. When I have no $$, I find everything I want.
March 17th, 201212:58 pm
Been there hate it…
Meanwhile, it’s kinda pouring right now…ugh!
March 17th, 201212:59 pm
jeffrey,did you ever contact toga?
March 17th, 20121:00 pm
Sun has come out here. But up until the last few minutes, it’s been very dreary after a very rainy night.
Gametime and I have the house to myself!
March 17th, 20121:01 pm
CCR’s “Fortunate Son,” Allmans’ “Blue Sky,” tunes by Black Keys, My Morning Jacket and New Order all played on stadium PA here today. Disney has apparently been infiltrated. Have that person fired or put through another session.
March 17th, 20121:02 pm
I don’t know how to. All I have is the email he used last year and he hasn’t responded
March 17th, 20121:04 pm
That’s a shame,hate to lose him.
March 17th, 20121:06 pm
Not raining at Dark Star. GO BRAVES
March 17th, 20121:07 pm
I Got A whopper and 2 Double Stacks On Deck
Come On BB!
Silly green caps.
March 17th, 20121:08 pm
Jeffrey d I am from nowhere and everywhere. Go braves.
Beautiful start by Beachy!
March 17th, 20121:09 pm
And then he throws two straight balls. Or make that 3.
March 17th, 20121:10 pm
The St. Pat’s Day green Braves caps today look much better with home whites they’re wearing for home games this spring training than they did with the blue jerseys in past years.
March 17th, 20121:12 pm
Is Beachy just playing with these guys?
Game 2 has started with a lead off single from Simmons
March 17th, 20121:13 pm
That dude was out by a MILE
March 17th, 20121:14 pm
wow, I didn’t know the Rev was hitting .121???
May i have a bite Tomahawkin?
March 17th, 20121:15 pm
Wish I could watch the game…
March 17th, 20121:17 pm
Yeah, he’s a former champion. I’m a 2-time bridesmaid
Wish you could cab.
March 17th, 20121:19 pm
cab, Jays not playing strong defense so far. It’s kinda funny.
Mac didn’t need that!
March 17th, 20121:21 pm
Nice Sac Fly! We need more of those in the reg season
Just missed it, but Mac gets the RBI.
I’ve got the online radio feed, which just cut out for some reason (I blame Time Warner’s inability to function in the rain)…but I’d like to be able to see them…
Probably be your year this year. My beginners luck will run out. I should think it will be a better league this year, be nice if we could get two more solid players. I thought about SB but haven’t seen him for awhile.
Uggla, sigh. Look at those arms!
March 17th, 20121:22 pm
and it’s back
March 17th, 20121:23 pm
“May i have a bite Tomahawkin?”
Yes, and I have Big Boy Hawaiian/Pineapple Marinated Ribeyes On Deck for Dinner…
Gotta Eat Big Before Going all out tonight!
Why is it that whenever I get up to do something, as soon as I sit down and get comfortable, I remember something else I need to get up and do?
March 17th, 20121:24 pm
Yeah, with a little more work on those guns, he’ll be in my territory.
He’s not ordering pizzas from the dugout again, is he?
Still want to know who lives in the tents that are beyond the RF fence.
March 17th, 20121:25 pm
Also, I could have an awesome Girl Cave going here if I so desired. Got the TV on the K-State/ Syracuse game, one computer listening to the Braves/Jays game, the other on the Braves/Mets gamecast, the iPad giving me twitter updates and the iPhone at the ready…now if only the dog could get up and make me some more tea…
jeffrey d -
lol….nah, he just fouled one off his foot.
March 17th, 20121:26 pm
Homerless people, George.
I forgot, Mac wouldn’t get an RBI on that since it was an error that put Bourn on 3rd.
March 17th, 20121:27 pm
That’s still an RBI, just not an ER
March 17th, 20121:29 pm
“Still want to know who lives in the tents that are beyond the RF fence.”
I wish I could…Those are perfect tailgate tents!
March 17th, 20121:30 pm
Thanks, jeffreyd. Wasn’t sure.
March 17th, 20121:31 pm
That was pretty
Send me the bites please Tomawkin. Where did Jeffrey go?
That was A Nasty Hooker BB!
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
