    Season In Review

    Well, the Braves season came to an end today and they finished up with a 79-83 record, finishing in 3rd place in the NL East. 22 games were blown by the bullpen this season, if those games would have been won the Braves would have had a 101-61 record, putting them in first place in the NL East. Injuries ravaged much of the starting rotation as three regular starters went down. Rookie Chuck James and journeyman reliever Ken Ray came out of no where to provide to provide the ailing pitching staff with support. The Braves offense was the backbone of the team this season, Andruw Jones led the team with 41 HR and 129 RBI. Second year catcher, Brian McCann was named an All-Star in only his 1st full season as he led the Braves with .333 batting average. Right fielder Jeff Francouer turned out to be the Braves ironman as he played all 162 games and hit 29 HR and knocked in 103 RBI. The St. Louis Cardinals also have the Braves to thank for an NL Central title this year.



    Team Pitching Stats

    ERA: 4.60
    Saves: 38
    Holds: 56
    Quality Starts: 71
    Strikeouts: 1049
    Home Runs Allowed: 183
    Runs Allowed: 805
    Bases On Balls: 572

    Team Batting Stats

    Runs Scored: 849
    Hits: 1510

Andruw backed up his great 2005 performance with another stellar year. McCann is looking to be an incredible ballplayer. We will likely be saying good bye to Giles now. It's going to be a long six months, but Mr. Cox will have the boys in line next year. I can hardly wait.
    And don't forget the person in right field whom if he upped his walks, he could be a force to be reckoned with.

    Oh well, what can you do with the "what ifs". Not much. Nice win though.

    Although, once again, I see the need to defend Craig Biggio in the thread in Current Events.

    I was looking over the Braves stats and I see that the Braves could have had 5 players with 30 HR and 100 RBI. Had Chipper and Brian McCann not gotten injured they would be in 30/100 territory. If Adam Laroche had been on his hot streak the whole year 40/110 wouldn't be out of the question. All we can say now is what could have been.

    Hopefully , the Braves will end the season by sweeping the 'Stros , not because I dislike the 'Stros but because I would rather have the Braves finish on a high note than see the Astros get into the Playoffs and subsaquently get eliminated in the 1st round + it would be great for Jon Smoltz to end the Season with a Win and not a blown save by the 'Pen .

    We took care of business tonight. It's good to see that we are trying to end the season on a positive note. Let's keep it going. If we win tomorrow, then we could end the season by sweeping the Astros with Big John Smoltz going on Sunday. It's good to have something to get a little excited about.

    I hope everybody is watching the game right now. It is just starting to sink in that this might be Mr. Clemens last game. It has been quite an experience watching Mr. Clemens in Boston, Toronto, New York, and now Houston. I still think of him as a Red Sox player, but he is truly something special. That being said I hope Chipper ropes one off of him the next inning. Let's knock Houston out of contention.
