  • 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 .

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Well, the season has come to an end. It wasn't the kind of year we wanted, but Smoltz is tied for the NL lead in wins. Chipper continued his march towards the Hall of Fame. 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.

            • 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.

                  • Chipper led the team with a .409 on base percentage. It's nice seeing Smoltz win the Braves triple crown. Nice work Sam.

                          I can't tell the difference between these two guys, can you?

                          Jeff Francoeur

                            Matt Diaz's OPS+ wa 116. His RC/27 was 6.09 compared to 4.42 for Francouer, yet we played Francouer every day. I was a little surprised to see that Frabcouer's OPS was below Langerhans. I guess his was the worst on the team for any starter, but we played him everyday. I'm hoping to see a lot more of Diaz next year. What was most amazing to me is that Francouer only had 83 runs created in 162 games. Chipper had 101 runs created despite playing about 50 games less than Francouer.

                              I expected Francouer's OPS+ to be low, but not THAT low. Geez.

                              Therefore, Francoeur needs to learn plate discipline and how to draw walks. He'll be much better then.

                              • I hope he works harder on plate patience this winter. Last year he worked on his swing and it paid dividends, now he just has to put that same effort into plate discipline.
