Braves quotes after Sunday’s win against Phillies

**FREDI GONZALEZ

On Chipper facing the “Doc,” not the doctor

“It was a good appointment I guess. Good overall team win. We had a lot of guys contribute to this win. Huddy obviously gave us a strong outing. Heyward put us on the board early. Chipper contributed with his solo home run, Danny Uggla with an RBI double, hopefully get him going.

“Played some good defense. And we got through that sixth inning. It was kind of hairy there a little bit. Durbin going 1 1/3 innings through their lineup. It was a good win. Huddy got his 10th win and O’Flaherty did his job there in the eighth inning.”

On sweeping Phillies for second time this month

“We’re taking advantage of some of the miscues they’ve made. We’ve got some timely hits and we’ve pitched. Go back and look at the last six games we’ve played against them we’ve had all those things, but the common denominator is we’ve pitched pretty well. Roger has done a terrific job with the game plan and Rossy and Mac have followed it to a tee.”

On how would react if someone told them before season started would sweep Philly twice in July

“Well, you feel like you can do that with your club. But they’re a good club and they still scare you. They’re not clicking on all cylinders right now for whatever reason, but they’ve still got a pretty good pitching staff and they’ve got those guys in the middle of the lineup. They had a chance to get us in the sixth inning there and we wiggled out of it. We were able to put a big number, a three-spot, to give us a cushion.

“They’re still a respectable team and I still respect them for the fact that they’re a veteran group of guys that won championships and have won a World Series. For me, it’s a matter of time for them to get it going.”

With Marlins struggling, have to tell your team not to have a mental letdown?

“No, I don’t think so. I think Tommy will go out tomorrow and give us a good outing and hope we keep pitching the way we’re pitching and capable of, we’re going to be OK. everybody in there knows what’s at stake and knows what these games here from this point on, if it wasn’t sooner, five days ago maybe, it’s scoreboard-watching time I think. It’s going to be fun.”

**JASON HEYWARD

On his 16th home run

“Change-up. I was looking for pitch out over the plate, hitting it hard. He’s a sinkerball pitcher, so I just wanted to stay on the pitch. I believe if he threw me a sinker there it would have been a good swing as well. He ended up throwing me a change-up. I stayed on it and hit it out of the park.”

On sweeping the Phillies

“It’s good. They’re in our division and they’re a good team, regardless of whether they’re going well or not. We can’t take it easy on them because they’re never going to take it easy on us.”

On hitting in the 3-hole the past 25 games

“I’m getting there, getting more comfortable with it. I’m working at it. It’s a great help to have Mike B and Prado on in front of me a lot of times. I’m getting more comfortable hitting with two outs and just going up there not trying to do too much. It’s between me and the pitcher at that time; don’t make it about anything else.”

On getting to 15 stolen bases

“Fifteen stolen bases is not a lot, and I’m not content with 15 homers or 16 homers or whatever. I want to keep going. More production means more wins, especially from the 3-hole. If you’ve got guys on in front of you, usually whatever the game dictates – whether it’s steal a base, get a big two-out RBI, move a runner, that’s what I’m trying to do.”

On taking pride in being versatile

“Right now I’m young. I’ve still got to use the speed, got to play as much defense as possible and swing the bat with the best of them. This is a tough division, lot of good pitching. I’m just trying to go out there every night, do what I can whether it’s the bat or the glove.”

On team playing well

“It’s the second half. We want to keep pushing for as many wins as possible. We’re going to try to win the division. Everything else after that will fall in place.”

**CHIPPER JONES

On if he had tweeted after the game

“I don’t have time for Twitter, man. I’ve got to eat. I’ve got to get in the cold tub. I’ve got to lift weights. The tweeps can wait.”

On if surprised by reaction to his twitter account

“Nothing surprises me anymore. Yeah you’ve got to keep it in perspective. Twitter is way on down the line as far as I’m concerned. I don’t pay that much attention to it.”

On Fredi’s misinterpretation of your tweet, thinking you were going to the real do

“How does that happen? I mean, baseball people should know who’s pitching today. I mean, I would think the training staff would probably tell him if I had a real doctor’s appointment, but… I’d expect some of the civilians out there not to know what I was talking about, but not Fredi.”

On how big this weekend was for the team

“Big sweep for us. We want to get this homestand kicked off on a good start. We are playing good baseball and really feel like we should dominate this homestand. Go out and win every one of them? That’s going to be a tall task, but you certainly look at the way we’ve been playing and the teams that we are playing, I’d certainly be disappointed with anything less than about 8-2. We beat Hamels and Halladay in this series and that was big for us. Let’s not have a letdown, let’s build on this winning streak we’ve got going and finish out this homestand and try and put some pressure on first place.”

On jumping out to early lead against Halladay

“It’s always important to get out on Doc. He’s not going to give you much. I think it’s the first mistake he’s made to me in a long time. The guy’s good. He’s a competititor. Probably didn’t have his best stuff early in the game, but kept his team in the game and gave them a chance through six or seven. We had the big inning late to kind of break it open a little.

“He doesn’t have a nickname and all them Cy Youngs in his trophy case for nothing.”

On passing Pete Rose for second place on extra-base hits list for switch-hitters

“Pete had a lot of doubles [laughter]. A lot of doubles.

“It’s another one of the milestones that when you get home from the ballgame and just say, ‘wow.’ Pete Rose had over 4,000 hits, and to past him in extra-base hits with 1,400 less hits than he had … is pretty cool.”

On sweeping Phillies twice this month

“Mentally as a team you’ve got to get over certain humps, and Philly’s been a big hump for us to try and get over. We’ve been striving to compete with them in this division for a long time, and they’ve handled us pretty well. I think this is one of the humps that this team has to get over mentally, and we seem to have done it. Now we’ve got to get over that hump of beating the Nationals. The Nationals have had our number a little bit over the past couple of years, and they’re the team ahead of us. So we better get going.”

On Fredi saying it’s time for scoreboard watching

“He can watch it all he wants, he sits there and looks at it every day [from the dugout]. I’ve got my back turned to it. I don’t really pay that much attention. As we sit right now, we’re in the playoffs. So just keep going out and winning ballgames. If we win ballgames, we’ve got our destiny in our hands. That’s all you can worry about. I think if we go out and we take it a step further than we did last year — I think we ended up with 89, 90 wins – if we go out and get ourselves 90-plus, 95 wins, I don’t think we’ll have to worry about not making it to the playoffs.”

Team’s playing well, do you still hope front office will get you some help before trade deadline Tuesday?

“You always like to see something. You can always use more pitching. I think our everyday lineup is pretty well set. Maybe a piece on the bench or a piece in the bullpen, who knows? Lot of stuff going on with the starting pitchers, trying to get ourselves a starter. I’m sure that if something can be done, Frank’s in on it. We can’t worry about that, though. If they help us, great. If they don’t, we’ll be fine.”

**TIM HUDSON

On his 10th win

“The defense has played really well behind me, and every time I’ve gone out there we’ve scored runs. It makes it easy to put up some wins when they score five or six runs for you.”

On Braves taking advantage of mistakes

“It’s nice to see guys take advantage of other teams’ miscues. We were facing a tough pitcher today and we put together some good at-bats. We’ve been putting pressure on [the other team] for most of the year. For a starting pitcher to go out there and know your guys are going to battle and scratch for runs and put up add-on runs here and there, it makes you feel a lot better. It makes your job a lot easier as far as going out there and not trying to be so fine and not worrying about one swing of the bat costing you the game.”

On winning six consecutive games against Phillies

“They’re a good club. They’ve had their troubles this year with health, and their confidence might be shaken a little bit. That’s the time you’ve got to take advantage of teams like that. They have it in them to be really good. It’s just that unfortunately for them, they got out of the gate slow. They weren’t healthy and it just kind of snowballed on them. We’re just fortunate to take advantage of it and hopefully we can keep them in our rearview mirror. But they definitely have the talent over there to win the division and win the World Series. They just really have had some tough luck this year.”

On playing well lately at home

“We didn’t play particularly well the first half at home. We just need to continue to improve our home record. To sweep that team is something that you always look forward to. It’s something you don’t really count on. Taking two out of three from them is always the goal. Sweeping them is something that definitely makes you feel good. With the Marlins coming in. We’ve been able to keep playing them pretty tough for the most part this year. We just need to keep playing good and improve in areas that we’re not so great in and just continue to roll on.”

On the starting rotation

“Our pitching, like I said a while back, we have to improve. We need to improve on our consistency. Hopefully the second half is the start of what we feel like we can do. We definitely feel like we underachieved in the first half from a whole pitching-staff standpoint. I feel like we’re going to be better. Hopefully it just continues to get better from here.”

On pitching with a lead

“Anytime you have a lead it’s nice to go out there and just attack the strike zone, go to your aggressive gameplan right off the bat. Guys are playing with some confidence right now. As a starting pitcher you need to go out there and realize that and try to keep the pressure off of them, a and the way to do that is to put up zeroes. Put up zeroes after [the Braves] score. That’s the big thing. After they put a run or two on the board.”

On importance of continuing to play well against NL East, way you have lately

“It’s is important. Obviously, man, we need to beat the Nationals a lot more than we have. But we’ve played well against the Phillies, we’ve played well against the Marlins, we’ve played against the Mets as of late. And that’s great; we needed to continue to do it. But we need to be the Nats. That’s who we’re looking up at.”

**DAN UGGLA

On his big hit, a two-out, RBI double

“They’ve been few and far between. It felt good. To get an extra-base hit, to get a hit, to get an RBI. That was a good start to the day.”

Fredi Gonzalez said he hasn’t seen you take your hitting slump to the field or have it affect your hustle

“Come on, you guys saw me play last year. For whatever reason, these peaks and valleys the last two years have been big-time peaks and big-time valleys. I learned a long time ago that no matter how you’re doing individually, you can’t always control whether or not you get hits and stuff like that, but you can control your attitude and your competitiveness and the way you play the game. I always take pride in that.”

Team has been seven or eight games over .500 during your long slump, that make it easier to deal with?

“Yeah, it does. My teammates have been picking me up. It’s just a matter of time before I can pick them up and carry them for the rest of the second half. I’ve been a second-half player for the last three or four years, and it looks like it’s going to continue to be that way.”

On Janish’s defense

“That was a huge pickup for us. Playing against him the past years, I knew he could pick it. But you never really appreciate it till you get to play next to him every day. He really brings a dynamic aspect to the shortstop position. He makes every play and gets to almost every ball. He’s been solid, man. He’s just one of those guys that stays steady. You know what you’re going to get when you put him out there.”

Uggla’s response today: ” I’ve been a second-half player for the last three or four years, and it looks like it’s going to continue to be that way.” How can he make that comment after getting his first hit in the past 11 games? There is only two months left in the season and he has taken the past two months off. His updated stats since June 6th: 16 hits in his last 140 at bats. Good thing the Braves 1-6 hitters are carrying their load and the pitching has held up. Not trying to hate on Uggla but he has been a huge disappointment. He is paid $13 million to be a power hitter but is not delivering. If he hit at all the past two months, the Braves could be in the division lead. Tired of all his grind and hustle responses as it is time to produce.

Chipper’s comments on his manager are so on base it is unreal. Yea FG sits on his lazy butt watching the scoreboard when he should be doing his job and manage. Anyone with a 1/2 ounce on baseball knowledge ( FG exculded) knew what he meant on Twitter when he said he had to see the Doc ! Did he say Doctor ???

Chipper’s lifetime avg actually tipped .305 (went up) after today’s game. He’s batting .317, excellent RBI production with an OBP closing on .400. I know he’s tired of travelling but Wren needs to get in his ear for one more rodeo. He’s still one the best hitting 3rd baseman in the game.

I didn’t say he was coming out of it. You have to be realistic, Uggla has been brutal since about what, end of May? He does hustle still and while it would be nice for even a Glaus like run, one double hardly means he’s coming out of it. Go Braves!

David the Shepherd

Chipper sounding more and more like a manager and calling out the “skipper” is both classic and needed. Fredi can learn a lot from him.

Hoss10

July 29th, 2012
9:14 pm

Love the Chipper quotes! Bringing a little piss and vinegar! I think it kinda says how the players (and us fans) feel about Fredi, that he’s an idiot! I sure hope that if we don’t run the table this year or get darn close, that Frank cans him.

On another note, I think many of us should lay off Frank and Uggla a bit. With Wren, he’s done about as well as you could do with the financial constraints that he’s given. Sure McLouth didn’t work out (and others), Uggla has definitely been disappointing a big chunk of the time thus far, but no GM is perfect. The Yanks GM, Cashman, has made many mistakes but he has a much bigger payroll for margin for error. Wren is a smart GM and is obviously keeping a wise eye for the future and not giving up our young gems in one-sided deals to save his own tail in the short-term. Cut him some slack.

Regarding Uggla, yes he’s struggled. BADLY. Personally, I’ve always cut him some more slack because the guy obviously cares and always plays HARD and doesn’t let up. He’s putting in the work, but those of you who have played competitive baseball know, it doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a while to develop these adjustments into live at-bats. Nobody is frustrated about it more than him. He’s a gamer and competitor and doesn’t let his frustrations at the plate negatively effect anything else with his game. He’s not pulling any Yunel crap, like pouting or loafing. We as fans should at least acknowledge that and maybe lay off him a little bit.

I thought with his quotes today regarding that, it made it a good time to bring this up. I’m sure many of you will just disregard all of this. It’s painfully obvious that most of you on here haven’t played the game and don’t know how hitters get into slumps and it can take a while to climb out of it. Frankly, I’m just annoyed with all these impatient fans talking crap, not knowing what the hell they’re talking about, and making Braves nation fans look bad.

jd56… you are correct sir. Durbin is doing well and has been for a good while. He has been a very strong pickup for the Braves this season, and I’m not too big a boy to admit when I’m wrong. But I was wrong about Chad Durbin early in the season and didn’t give him neither the benefit of the doubt nor enough opportunity to settle in with the Braves. Thank you for calling me out earlier about him, and I apologize to you as well… and please tell him that he doesn’t have a bigger fan than me!

Not so sure what people saw today that would suggest Uggla is coming out of his self induced slump. He hit a mistake(hanging slider) for a double the other three at bats he looked as lost as ever on the slider away. Coming out of it would be doing something positive like trying to hit the ball the other way. The guy hustles and should be given credit for that, but his stubbornness in not changing his approach at the plate should get all the scorn on this blog it deserves. This “I am a second half hitter” BS has him believing it himself. There are players that are streaky and that has much to do with feel but this notion that it takes a player a half season to get this feel is BS.

Lay off Uggla ? Why ? I have played organized ball and know to listen to those who can help you and try something new and see if it helps. With him it’s same ole same ole. Question is: What can I do to become a full year producer? Also, Chipper knows a complete misfire he has in a manager, you can bet (oooooooooops not in Baseball) on that. The best trade we have made this season was the one we didn’t for Rent a Pitcher in Chicago.
