glord1, Heyward looks that bad? That’s not good. I have see two of his at bats this whole sprig on tv, so I don’t know. I’ll take your word as you’ve seen more of him and in person. That’s worrying, we need him bad.

Sure it is! You can’t pass around false information like that…

“i guess Dickey is the Mets opening day guy? Good, a knuckler to kick off our offensive struggles.”
Cy Johan Santana will get the opening day start, Bank on It…He makes 20 plus mill to be the opening day starter…
The good thing is that the Braves have had good luck against Johan

CTB I saw two games so I think 6 or 7 ABs. Very small sample size. That said he had one hit and struck out most of the other ABs. The following week I saw he hit a HR and hit a ball off the wall. ST does not always mean that much but probably means more for him than most this year to build confidence. Right now he is hitting .183 with 2 hr and 8 rbi. He also has 17 Ks in 60 ABs.

Hey guys, I have a quick programming question for you. I recently switched to Direct TV from Charter Communications and I was wanting to make sure I have the channels that carry all the Braves games. Does anyone on this blog know what those channels may be?
March 25th, 201212:47 pm
glord1, the strike outs aren’t good, but it could just mean he’s adjusting to the new stance or how he’s holding his hands closer to his chest. IDK, he needs to hit.
Tennessee Braves Fan – they’re usually on either Fox Sports South, Sports South, and Peachtree TV

Onions and fried pickles and fried mushrooms
D,O.B. Any Recomendations as to the best junkfood/appitizers in The “A”???
March 25th, 201212:52 pm
So DirecTV won’t be getting some Braves games?
March 25th, 201212:57 pm
Good morning T How are you?
March 25th, 20121:01 pm
“All Da Way Turn’t Up!”

You were the wedding shower? Sounds insane
Brian Bixler waiting to lead off against JJ as we hear Centerfield on the stadium speakers…
Would Anyone be interested in Lusting for Carlos Lee at the Midseason trade deadline?
I would get giddy for Lee If and only If Houston eats 50-60 percent of his contract…???
Feel free to take dead aim on this post….

Travis Buck – another first pitch strike – then ball 1 – hit to center – Bourn has it…
March 25th, 20121:14 pm
Just don’t know what to do with JASON, last year he could not hit .240 this year the way it looks he may not hit .200. With those stats you can’t really play him [ but FREDI will] and soon Jaso will have not trade value left.
And Matt Downs flies to Bourn to end the inning…
March 25th, 20121:15 pm
Jurrjens gets through 1st w/out a hit or walk (only baserunner was on E4 Uggla). There was a flyout to CF track by Travis Buck. Jurrjens operating at 88-89 mph
March 25th, 20121:16 pm
Bourn flies to left…

Homer CRUSHED by Uggla, off the left-center scoreboard. His sixth of spring. 2-0 Braves
March 25th, 20121:24 pm
Good at bat by McCann kept the inning going for Uggla…
Freeman flies to left to end the inning – 2-0 Braves…
Fab 5 Freddie Chokes up on the bat about 5/8’s or 3/4’s of an inch…I didn’t know that

Where are you watching the game?
March 25th, 20121:30 pm
Where in tarnation is Soph, bravesgirl4life, Coach, phil, Mitchell and everyone else???
@D.O.B. How accurate are those radar guns…???
Nice inning for Double J…And avoided a huge scare on the comebacker…
March 25th, 20121:31 pm
March 25th, 20121:32 pm
Parraz and Diaz out quickly…
March 25th, 20121:33 pm
Tyler grounds out to end the 2nd…
March 25th, 20121:34 pm
Diaz annoys me for some reason. He just makes a quick out and smirks.
Where are you watching the game?”
At the Pad (house) here in Grayson/Loganville
The Game is on Comcast SportsSouth Channel 45 on Comcast…
Mike Morgan and Brian Jordan are doing the commentary….
Brian Jordan still looks like he can play for either the Braves or the Falcons
March 25th, 20121:36 pm
Diaz is a hacker, something younger guys don’t need to see imo. Hopefully they don’t see much of him anyways. Keep him on that bench as much as possible.
Good morning “T” hows it going man???
March 25th, 20121:37 pm
Marwin Gonzalez takes a ball – 2-1 – bunt, no chance for Prado – single…
That caght Martini off guard!
Duke flies out to Diaz…
JJ gettin movement and it’s showing. Maybe this is his turnaround.
March 25th, 20121:38 pm
I mean to say that caught Martini off Guard
March 25th, 20121:39 pm
Bixler grounder to Martin – long throw to first gets him, runner to 2nd…
March 25th, 20121:40 pm
“Good morning “T” hows it going man???”
Recovering From last night! u?
Nice play Martini!
least of the east
not good if JJ isn’t even reaching 90 mph. I thought a knee brace would allow him to put more weight on his knee. maybe he’s just trying to build up to higher velocity.
Weak grounder to Tyler, FF digs it out of the dirt for the 3rd out…
Prado is a good 3rd baseman. I think that and 2nd base are his natural positions. And Pasty is gonna make us nervous out there. UGH
March 25th, 20121:41 pm
Middle 3rd, Braves lead 2-0…
Nice Stab Fab 5 Freddie…!
Is The Rev That Bad on his Throws?
March 25th, 20121:43 pm
JJ grounds to 2nd…
March 25th, 20121:44 pm
Bourn – 3-1 count…
From what I’ve seen, the Rev. has a weak arm for a SS. Seems like half his throws are in the dirt.
March 25th, 20121:45 pm
Walk to Bourn…
least of the east
“not good if JJ isn’t even reaching 90 mph. I thought a knee brace would allow him to put more weight on his knee. maybe he’s just trying to build up to higher velocity.”
Its Spring Training bro…Be cool and don’t worry abt the pitch speed…Double J is building on his endurance for the reg season and the daily grind…
Plus Double J is looking better after getting Slapped in his last start
March 25th, 20121:47 pm
THawkin – From what I’ve seen (small sample size notwithstanding), got to agree with Mekons. Every long throw from him I’ve seen has been up the line and in the dirt.
0-2 pitch dropped over the second baseman for a single by Prado, Bourn to second…
“From what I’ve seen, the Rev. has a weak arm for a SS. Seems like half his throws are in the dirt.”
I have noticed that as well…and on that last garbage throw he wasn’t throwing under stress of having a fast runner…
Fab 5 Freddie Can’t save them all as good a the future gold glover is….
March 25th, 20121:49 pm
I don’t care how hard he throws as long as he gets hitters out. Dude’s never going to be a power pitcher, anyway and has gotten out batters before with less than World Cass velocity.
BMAC -3 RUN HR!!!!!
BOOM SHOTLOCK BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!
March 25th, 20121:50 pm
McCann’s second homer of spring was a pulled shot down RF line on 2-0 pitch from Astros lefty Zach Duke, Braves lead 5-0 in 3rd
March 25th, 20121:51 pm
March 25th, 20121:52 pm
Simmons should be our SS.
March 25th, 2012
I don’t care how hard he throws as long as he gets hitters out. Dude’s never going to be a power pitcher,
Co-Sign…Its All abt his veolcity and building endurance for the season in S. Training…
Freddie HR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
March 25th, 20121:53 pm
B Mc Bomb!!!
C’mon home boys……..lets light this candle!!
FAB 5 FREDDIEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
This Is How We Do It!!!!
March 25th, 20121:54 pm
Looks like Fredi is letting them use the wood bats today. Dirty trick bringing those wiffle bats to Dunedin yesterday.
Looks like MLB.TV has decided to rip me off. I watch on a Samsung Blu Ray which they say they won’t update until late March for video access (Even though it had complete access last season with fine video). So I paid for spring training access and now can’t view it. Sigh.. would have loved to see the McCann HR.. erg! And now Freeman.. damn you MLBtv. (my unhappy face)
Gil in Mechanicsville
You know what folks, you just have to love big crooked numbers, no matter who you are playing against…
Don’t you feel sorry for Duke though? Probably can’t even make the last spot in the awful Stros rotation. Poor dude.
March 25th, 20121:55 pm
I didn’t know this but:
The Braves Were dead last in batting avg last year against left handed pitchers,
Parraz – flies out foul for the 2nd out…
March 25th, 20121:56 pm
Poor Astro…they pay it the frustration of the Braves player on yesterday game..
March 25th, 20121:57 pm
Diaz robbed by the third baseman to end the inning…
And just for a little bit, you know how it felt to be a Tigers fan when they played the Braves this spring…
March 25th, 20121:59 pm
I did not realize to what degree my absence yesterday and my return today would affect the team…
March 25th, 20122:00 pm
Where is the Jordan Chick who does the Fan interactions with the fans on the Blog and Facebook…
She is gorgeous….!
Braves have jumped all over lefty Zach Duke for 7-0 lead through 3 inn. on HRs by Uggla, McCann Freeman. Jurrjens has given up one hit — a bunt single.
March 25th, 20122:01 pm
Travis Buck – 2-2 count – drilled foul…
