  • Adam LaRoche

    What has happen to this guy (Adam LaRoche)??? The last time (not that long ago) I checked his stats he had about 15 HRs and his average was around .250 , how come he know has 27 taters and his average has risen over 30 points ???

    He has absolutely killed the ball since the All Star break. He is leading the NL in batting average and slugging percentage since the break. He has a sweet swing and is fast becoming one of the best first baseman in the game. We are extremley fortunate to have LaRoche, and hopefully he will be here for a long time. By the way, he just smashed a two run home run to give us the lead.

      POTG without a doubt is Adam LaRoche.

      Honorable mention: Ward. Both got it done with one swing of the bat each!

        That game is why the Braves have won 14 straight division titles. I just hope they get things together for next season.

          He has grown on me. I'm starting to like him more and more which is surprising because I've been one of his biggest critics. If he can hit LHP he'll be very good for us.

                Yes. Now if only the rest of the lineup improves with him, we'd be in business.

                  ESPN feels Laroche has made a big improvement because of his ADD medications.

                        all it does is help his concentration. that OTL show was a joke, especially the panelists.

                        its not like hes the only player to be using anti ADD meds. Scott Eyre a pitcher for the cubs has been using meds for about 4 years now.

                          Along with the two other guys named in the AJC article, Craig Biggio, and Derek Lowe. No one seems to be upset about Biggio taking ADD medication.

                          The guys on OTL are just a lot of hot air. They'll say anything controversial or make issues out of non-issues just to get ratings.
                          Every passing hour brings the Solar System forty-three thousand miles closer to Globular Cluster M13 in Hercules -- and still there are some misfits who insist that there is no such thing as progress.

                            I am actually glad to see you say you are still skeptical. Iget tired of seeing people flip flop on their opinions on a weekly basis.
                            I signed with the Milwaukee Braves for three-thousand dollars. That bothered my dad at the time because he didn't have that kind of dough. But he eventually scraped it up.~Bob Uecker

                              I still don't think he's all that good either. I bet Scott Thorman could produce huge numbers if he got regular playing time. This is the 1st year Laroche hasn't had a platoon I believe. That may be the reason his numbers are alot better along with the meds like it said above. My opinion has been changed slightly but I still think he needs to develop and not strike out as much.
