Well, I hope you’re right anyway

@Rick C If you want to win Yes YES YES!! For the 5th time Pitching does not win. Runs scored wins. Hitters for pitchers YES YES YES!

Angel Eyes — that is the most uninformed comment I have ever heard.
History shows that 70 – 75 pct of the game is pitching. History is full of heavy hitting teams that were mediocre. Perfect example was the 1973 Braves — 3 40 HRs guys and where did that team finish?
That has not changed. Both are important but without pitching you lose.

Tell you what You take your ace pitchers and no hitting team put them in a 5 game series. I will put my mediocre pitchers and good hitters in same serir=es. I WIN!!!
December 13th, 20126:53 pm
You can take a team of super hitters and medicore pitchers and you probably finish around .500, so you do not even get a chance to face my team of ace pitchers.
If you have the complete team you have a good chance to win it all.
December 13th, 20127:06 pm
With your no hitters you do not score so your team would not be there. You have to score runns, Not like BRAVES(3) Thats why Braves dont win.

Supper with my woman and then off to work. See you tomorrow. Bye

DO… is there an “ignore” button around here somewhere? I’m sure I’m not the only one wishing for some informed discussion without having Angel Eyes constantly yelling and going on a tirade. It’s a pain to have to sift through all the mess to get to the good.

What happen to Amber? She has not been on in long time…..she leaves and who show up?

Braves need a leadoff hitter Mr. Wrenn Remember offennse has been your down fall

Angel Eyes, that proposed deal for Fowler is exactly what I’m talking about when I say you don’t want to make a move just for the sake of making one. You would be trading away a key part of our rotation and one of our two best prospects for a guy with a career 248/331/367 line away from Coors Field. How does that make our offense better?

I am a little surprised that the Braves were not in on Ty Wiggington who has good numbers against left handed pitching. It would seem that he was a good candidate for a platoon with Fransisco and a good right handed bat off the bench. He also could back up at first base and didn’t seem to cost too much.
I am sure the Braves have their reasons or have already made a decision about what they are looking for and if they cannot get it they will go with what they have.
I believe that FW does a good job piecing a team together so his plan must be better than a Ty Wiggiton move. Personally, I would love to see Fransisco given the opportunity to start the season at third base as the everyday 3rd baseman unitl he proves he can either handle the job or is best used in a platoon system.

Disappointing “propaganda” story with Wren comments, but not surprising. Braves won’t do anything . . . going cheap with young players. Wish Braves would stop wasting your (and our) time with “major trade talks.” Just an exercise while the continue to sell us young and cheaper (inexperienced) players.

The first half might be kinda ugly with no Beachy, McCann out for a month, a below average left fielder (or 3rd baseman), and no true leadoff hitter.
December 15th, 201210:37 am
agree Matt Johns–tired of BS and excuses–just say we’re going with kids and will try to win in future. Can’t understand how so many fans are happy to win 90 games, wild card and play one game and go home. I was taught you play to win it all. Wren believe you can put a Quarter horse in the Kentucky derby and win…good luck.

What about the Asst GM looking for American players? now there’s a thought…
December 15th, 20123:29 pm
Why in the world we are allowing Kimbrell, the most dominant closer to pitch for team USA world classic, when he needs that time try’n to save his arm to be dominant next september? If he comes up w/ any arm problems, shoulder problems or tired arm, should we be reminded of him getting active for a tournament that has no meaning, & we need full strength come playoff time. Ya’ll remember this if he comes ailing later this year. You just can’t shut an arm on/off anytime you’d want. Gosh, I hope to be wrong about this.

The World Baseball classic is stupid — we need to keep our players healthy for our own MLB team. International baseball is second fiddle to the major leagues.

If Jaun Fransico can trim down , There is potental there for a Solid third baseman that has some power if he can Keep working on his swing ……. Rather go with him at third and Prado in Left then trade for Justin Upton at this point , Keep our pitchers ……Look what happen last season when Injuries came upon us …….

Financial independence is a term generally used to describe the state of having sufficient personal wealth to live, without having to work actively for basic necessities. For financially independent people, their assets generate income that is greater than their expenses. For example, a person’s quarterly expenses may total $4000. They receive dividends from stocks they have previously purchased totaling $5,000 quarterly, while also having more money in other assets.^’
