Braves quotes after Monday’s loss to Pirates

**FREDI GONZALEZ

On missed scoring chances

“We had some opportunities. We had, what, first and second with one out, and Mac rolled into a double play. And bases loaded with two out and Freeman rolled over one. But yeah, it’s hard to win ballgames with two hits and one run. Pauly [Braves starter Paul Maholm] was outstanding. He really was.

“I thought the ball Simmons hit early in the game [to the left-field wall] had a chance. I thought that had more of a chance than the one that Marte hit [home run] to center; I thought maybe that would go off the wall, but it cleared the fence.”

More on Maholm

“Pauly was outstanding. A right-handed dominant lineup, and he gave up what, five hits and two runs? He did a nice job. He deserves a better fate, but we just didn’t get the bats going.”

Encouraged by Maholm’s recent starts?

“He’s been terrific. I feel like you’ve got a real good chance to win every time he goes out there.”

On lack of offense, even during the winning surge

“Yeah. Maybe now we give these guys a day off, maybe play some of the bench and get those guys going. They need some at-bats too. You don’t want to give [regulars] three days off before our next game Friday, but maybe we can get a couple of guys an at-bat here or there and get them out of the game.”

On former Braves prospect Jeff Locke, who got his first career win

“Somebody said that he was drafted by us. Did he come over in the McLouth trade? [He’s] pretty good. He had that one little [problem in third] where he walked a couple of guys and we got a run off of him. But other than that I thought he did a nice job mixing pitches and sneaky-fast, guys couldn’t get a good [read]. They were coming back saying the fastball sneaks up on them.”

“I thought he was decent. I thought he was better than decent – I thought he was pretty good.”

On NL East title hopes ending

“I’m proud of the guys. Ten days ago we were eight or nine games back, and the Nationals came in and we swept them. We just kept battling. But it was going to be difficult. We just didn’t have any games to play against them, so it would have almost had to be a perfect ending for us, and then the other way [Nationals lose all their games, too].

“It’s something we shoot for and we didn’t get it. We’ve got the Wild Card game. There’s been many teams that go through the wild card to win the World Series. So we’ll take it one game at a time.”

On at least now being able to rest guys now before the Wild Card game

“Yes, we’ll do that. We’ll get guys like Baker some at-bats, get maybe Johnson and Francisco, get those guys some at-bats. Maybe Hinske, Overbay.”

**CHIPPER JONES

Anything in particular Locke was doing to make him effective?

“He struggled with command; he was effectively wild. Got himself into a couple of jams, but he didn’t throw anything fat over the plate where we could get good swings on him. Typical first time seeing a guy, not knowing tendencies. You watch film on him and he threw a lot of fastballs on film. And he got out there tonight and he couldn’t command his fastball, so he threw more breaking balls and off-speed stuff. It was just kind of hard to get a gauge on what he was trying to do out there. He kept us off-balance. Not too many balls hit hard at all tonight.”

Been winning, but without many runs most nights.  Is it a concern?

“Lack of offense is always a concern. But quite honestly you can’t control when you’re seeing it good, when you’re swinging it good. I can’t speak for the rest of the guys, they may feel great. I don’t feel particularly good at the plate. But it’s up to me to fix it before Friday.”

On not winning division, disappointment?

“We wanted to go out and win the division. It’s a little disappointing that we’re going to finish second. But we live on past Wednesday. It was going to be a tough row to hoe anyway – three down with three to play is never the situation you want to be in. But it is what it is now. We play Friday. Now our concentration should be getting ourselves ready for Friday night, or Friday afternoon or whatever it is.”

**PAUL MAHOLM

On Marte’s ball carrying for homer and Simmons’ getting caught at wall

“I was standing on deck and I thought Simmons’ [fly ball] was well out, and it didn’t go. And Marte’s – it was a bad pitch. I didn’t think he crushed it. Obviously he got enough of it to get out. I made a couple of bad pitches to Marte and he hit a [triple] and the home run, and the one to Cutch [McCutchen] wasn’t where I wanted it.

“For the most part I did what I wanted. Obviously I’d rather not give up the two runs, but you go seven and give up two, most of the time you’re going to come out pretty good.”

Feel good about the last few starts you’ve had?

“Yeah, definitely. You go through rough patches and I had a couple that were bad. You understand, you learn from them and you move on. Here lately I’ve been executing my pitches and pretty much keeping the ball in the yard, getting ground balls. It just seemed like the second time through tonight they were sitting off-speed. I hung a couple and they took advantage of it.”

Typical Atlanta Braves “mail-it-in team” slump. McCann has been worthless since LAST August (check his numbers), so what he’s done isn’t a surprise. Uggla is 3 weeks on, 3 months off. Freddie and Jason are horror films at the plate lately. No brain at bats. The bench sucks, with Overbay, Baker, Hinske…and Reed Johnson 0 for his last 20 something. Chipper is just shot right now.
Friday, and this group will be one and done. More brain dead at bats. Pathetic.

Well now. The Braves lost a one run again. I guess they just have to lose as many one run games as they win. But in Hudson’s case, that would be 6 runs. If the Braves don’t clean how house this off season, and say we have a good core group here, these underachievers won’t ever win one for the town.
I’ll have to admit though when Bourn came here I thought what the hell. But I was wrong. That fellow is just about all the Braves have. These young guns freddie is so gungho on, are losers. They’ve had so much hot air blown up their butts they think they can float. And Lard Ass McCain is a 300 lb weight the rest can’t carry any longer. Even with Ross’ problems he so much better than LA.

And you’re right, Chipper can’t say we’ll get it next year. I hope about half the Braves can’t either.

Congrats Braves for a great season but there’s a problem, no offense.Pitching can’t be depended upon all the time. Hopefully they have alot of playing to do but next season there’s has to be alot of changes. I would not sign Bourn. The Braves have alot of flexability in their pitching staff. I would put Luis Avilan in the rotation and sign a power arm. McCann is a problem, I believe they are hiding something. Trade him & Hanson ASAP. Sign anoher catcher to go with Ross until Betencourt is ready. They will need 2 outfielders or one outfielder and a third baseman. Go get them Redbirds!!!!!!

It would have been nice to push the Nats to a tie for the division, but the odds were stacked against the Braves for that outcome.
How many of these cronic complainers had the Braves figured to even be in the playoffs this year,(and yes the WC game is a playOFF game).
Most of these jokers were ready to disassemble the entire team after the first 4 games of this season.
If the Braves can get by this one game shootout that is the WC game, I think that they have just as good of a chance as any other team, to win the WS.
Now they can rest some of their players a little bit, and hopefully come out swinging in the playoffs.

Pitching was still great, and we can take 2 out of 3. Let some guys rest for a day, though not the entire lineup, and hit hard Friday night. Chippers celebrations and trying to catch the Nats are over, so we can focus hard on taking care of business come Friday. Go Braves, it’s been a terrific season. 93+ wins is nothing to be ashamed of.

If Reed picks up the ball off the wall the score would have been 1-1. To me and anyone else that knows baseball that was a double and a error not a triple. To go a little farther if our third baseman had quicker reactions the double would have been and out. But I guess we can’t play the IF game.

At least after last September’s collapse, the inactive offseason, the weak spring training results, and the first four games, fans had a little bit of substance to advocate a complete overhaul. But, the team has performed well this year and deserves a little bit of faith. The decision to stay the course has proven to be the right one (see Boston Red Sox and how change hurt them). They absolutely can win the one-game playoff and advance deep in the playoffs. But, it seems like some posters aleady have their excuses ready by blaming Fredi.

Offense is horrible and has been all year. You have to feel for the pitching staff with absolutely no offense to support them. Johnson, Overbay and Henski what a waste of money. Freeman and Heyward very inconsistent. The Braves have all year left too many RISP. McCann needs to be benched and traded. Why did they bring up Boscan and not use him. Jose should have been in left field last night not Reed. I can’t figure out Freeman has such long legs and runs like a turtle. What a shame watching the Nats celebrate a division championship on our loss. You guys are paid too too much to do so little. Shame Shame on you. Last but not least Fredi really needs to GO

I’m a little sour. Philly gave them a chance but they blew it again on a pitcher they haven’t seen. Everyone else wins against this guy and other first start pitchers but the Braves give him his first career win. How many time has that happened this year? If I were the Cards I would pull a guy up from AAA and start him for the WC game assuring a win.

And McCann, is there any slower baseball player than him? I mean really dude. The ball he hit off the pitchers glove, taking the second baseman an hour to get there and still throws Mac out by a step and a half. I can crawl faster than he can run. Bad knee or not. Play Ross for cryin’ out loud. He at least hits a dinger from time to time and can throw a guy out when needed.

But I digress, I will be there Friday night cheering on these guys to somehow pull out a win against the birds. At the very least I have a chance to see Chipper for possibly his last game or Medlen to go for 24.

C’mon boys! Slap the bad taste out of my mouth and win this stupid play in game!

Medlen better throw a shutout on Friday — still no guarantee.
I agree with others that ROSS not McCann should start on Friday. I would also move Simmons up in the lineup. Bourn, Prado, Heyward, Jones, Freeman, Simmons, Uggla, Ross, Medlen Although Bourn Simmons, Heyward, Jones, Prado, Freeman, Uggla, Ross, Medlen is intriguing.

Freeman is anoher Brave who needs to work on conditioning and lose some weight during the off season. His defense has beenhorrible this year — still makes the picks at firs, but no range and too many errors. There were two balls in the last two games that were hit wide of Freeman where he did not even move to make a play — the weak Tabata double last night and a ball to his right on Sunday.

The bench is a disaster. The Braves made a mistake by cutting Livan earlier in the year. They should have kept him as a right handed bat off the bench. Johnson has been very disappointing and the rest of the bench worthless. I would prefer to see the Rev on the bench for the playoffs instead of Hinske and Overbay even if he is right handed.

Treat Chipper as he would be treated when he comes to bat as he would be during any other playoff series. Leave the standing O’s for the end of the game.

Folks, you have to just tip your cappo at the Buckos for showing us what will eventually happen! Folks, first of all, when you can’t beat a crappy team, its a bad sign. Folks, when you put a pitcher on the mound that you got from the crap heap, what can you expect? Finally, folks, raise your hand if you want to see a choke job Friday in front of a half empty stadium? I surely don’t, folks.
But, I have shined up my cap to get ready to tip at the Cards because that right there is a CLUTCH team. Folks, did you know that the Cards have won 2 titles in half the time that it took the Bravos to win just one? WOW, Folks. Now THAT is CLUTCH! One of the tough questions DOB the Kool-Aid man would of asked is “Fredi, do you think with the history of choke jobs the Braves have had, how can you relay to the fans that this team is different than those team?” OR “Fredi, do you feel confident going into another playoff run with basically all ground ball pitchers knowing that strike out pitchers are the ones who tend to dominate in the post season?” Folks, thats what you deserve from your ATL beat reporter…not some kind of daily musical review!
And to THAT, I say ATTA BOY ME!

Barbara, Reed was in LF because of the LH starter. And Boscan was only called up as a backup. It allows them to use Ross as a PH more.

Nevada Roy, the Braves already have beaten Lohse badly this season. No reason to think they can’t again. Facing a pitcher they’ve never seen before is going to be more challenging.

Tumbledown,

Thinking a bit more about it I might tweak that second lineup a bit more and bat Prado 4th, and either Jones or Freeman 5th (the other 6th). The current lineup is not working, and the second half of the lineup is like a dead zone. If the bottom half leads off an inning there is little hope of scoring, only hoping to clear the pitcher for the next inning. Monving Simmons up and Chipper down might lengthen the lineup a bit.

No. Because Chipper has been in a deep slump and has played seven games in a row and is hitting with no power for the last 3 weeks, I think the farewell tour is getting to him. The tour was nice, but now let it be over. The loss to the Pirates (or rather the lack of any offense against a very mediocre assortment of pitchers) was a team effort. The Chipper Farewell had to be a distraction though.

I wish the Braves had added the likes of Gattis, Cunningham, and Terdoslavitch to the roster instead of Overbay, and Bautista. They couldn’t be worse than Overbay and Hinske,and Constanza, Johnson, and Baker have not been much help either. I don’t think that September callups start the arbitration clock, and there should be ample room on the 40 man after retirements/non tneders this winter.

jim

October 2nd, 2012
12:22 pm

Jeff Locke and the Pirate pen were not pitching game 6 of the WS in 95. The Braves troubles in the playoffs during the 90’s were more a result of the bullpen deficiencies than the lineup. There were a lot of other games in those years when the team did score 5+ runs (Think the last 3 games against the Cards coming back from 3-1 down in 96 and game 1 of that WS for starters).

Yeah, jim, various bullpen deficiences in several key World Series games cost the Braves dearly (Game Six of the 1991 WS, Game Two of the 1992 WS, and of course Game Four of the 1996 WS). What about a lineup of Bourn, Simmons, Prado, Heyward, Uggla, Freeman, Chipper, Ross and Medlen? I like having the speed at the top along with Prado’s clutch ways. Hopefully, Chipper and Freeman can bounce back to help the back end.

Barbara

October 2nd, 2012
12:37 pm

@Rick. I am well aware of the righty lefty bit sometimes it doesn’t work out. I think Jose can hit either one and he is a better outfielder. About Boscan, McCann is definitely not the McCann he used to be he is dead weight. Use Ross as the starter and Boscan the backup. All the regulars just need to shape up and start hitting

Rick C

October 2nd, 2012
12:54 pm

Barbara, I would agree that Constanza is a better defender, but he’s hitting 182 against lefties (with the same OBP and SLG). If you think McCann’s offense is bad now, you’re gonna be real disappointed if you’ve never seen Boscan at the plate. There’s a reason he’s spent his whole career in the minors. He can’t hit for beans.

Chipper was quoted as saying that he was swinging for the fences during the first two games with the Mets. He was already slumping coming into the series. He not only needs a rest, he needs to get his stroke back as well beforfe Friday. I like the idea of moving him down a couple of places in the lineup to move Simmons up where he can be more effective and hiting Prado hird or fourth would lengthen the lineup and make the back end a little stronger. The current lineup is not working for almost a month. Great pitching and a favorab le schedule has overcome the lineup deficiencies up till now but need to rethink the lineup going into the playoffs.

jim

The Pirates telecast listed Hudson to start on Wednesday — probably a 2-3 inning tuneup for his next (hopefully) start to begin the NLDS. I’m not sure when that game would occur. Sat or Sun. (If Saturday, I don’t think he will pitch on Wednesday at all.

Fredi says he is taking 3 starters to the playin game Medlen and 2 more — If there is an injury or a rain delay that forces Medlen out of the game or extended extra innings, there would be a need for a back up starter (Minor?) He could take Hudson just for his bat off the bench (preferable to some of the others who will be selected)

The guy that posted at 11:34 a.m. has to be the worst and most annoying commenter we have, now that Robot retired from anti-Cox missives and ACE has decided to stay away since being told that his primary subject matter wouldn’t be tolerated any long.

Cap-tipper guy, you’re the new No. 1. For now. Slightly ahead of georgie.

Is the Robert dissing Fredi at the top of his blog a different Robert from the one who kept calling Cox a donkey?

Really works out better this way. There was little hope to win the division, down 3 with 3 left to play. Now some bench guys can get some at-bats, regulars can get a little rest before what will probably be a brutal post season schedule. They will be fresh and rested to win the WS! Hell of a season guys, GO BRAVES!

Janet: Francisco was doing quite well as a fill in for Chipper before we got Reed Johnson. He hasn’t had an at-bat in ages, and learn to spell check.
