        Sounds like a sequel to "The Rookie", wonder if Disney is already looking into it.

            Good news and bad news

            The Braves offense so far has scored more runs than any other team, 11 more then the runner-up. But as you know the pitching as given up more runs than any starting rotation, 6 more then the runner-up. Pretty wild.

              And our record is 3-4, but the offense is very encouraging. Once the pitching gets going and Chipper and Horacio get 100% this will be a tough team to beat.

                Thomson did a really good job tonight, no Earned Runs, 4ks, 6hits in 5 innings. Its the top of the 6th and so far the bullpen is trying to blow it. Cormier is on the mound and struggling.

                GO BRAVES!!!

                    Braves win 5-3 vs. Phillies
                    Team Record: 4-4

                    Thomson pitched a very good game, wish he could have got a W with his effort. He even went 2-for-2 and had 2 RBIs. Might need to use him as a PH at times.

                    Villareal is now 3-0. Wow. Ray looked good and Reitsma picked up his 3rd save.

                    Sosa (0-1 23.14) vs. Lidle (0-1 5.40) tomorrow night.

                    • Hey, guys...
                      I've been gone on a field trip for 4 days, and when I returned, I found my computer had crashed. This meaning the keyboard completely doesn't work. As I type this I'm using my "on-screen" keyboard. So basically I won't be posting often for a week.

                      However,I must say Ken Ray has really, impressed me, I hope Moylan can also. I must confess I'm a bit pleased with Horacio being out. However, I'm unhappy Chipper is out. I see Remlinger,Villareal, Cormier, James, and Ray being potential great successes.

                      If Moylan and Reitsma step up their game our bullpen could be a potential strength.

                      Our rotation needs to step it up. However I was impressed with Thomson yesterday.

                      Barring Chipper, our offense is pretty decent. I do hope Frenchy gets on track. Tony Pena's up from AAA and Devine is back down. We'll see how it works out. I'll see you all in a bit. Wish me luck with this computer crap.

                      Go Bravos.

                      • Peter Moylan?

                        Bringing up Moylan Baffles me. Does anyone know who he is? Let me enlighten you

                        Pitched in the Gulf Coast league for two years in 97 and 98, solidly unspectacular. Then plays the next few years in Australia. Yup, Australia. Comes to prominence in the US while pitching for Team Australia in the WBC. The team that lost all three games it played.

                        He was offered contracts from a few different teams after his "success" in the WBC. Moylan was like the other Aussie pitchers, wild, wild, wild. Apparently the Braves like him because he throws hard(96) and sidearm.

                        I watched him this spring, and wasnt overly impressed. he got some guys out, but they hit the ball hard as well.

                        The Braves have better options.

                        ON a positive note, its good that they sent Devine down. It was ridiculous that they even called him up. He struck out a lot of guys this spring, but he also showed signs that he wasnt ready. Pulling up this early in the season was just mean, he clearly isnt ready. and PLEASE, can some coach, any coach in the Braves organization work on his mechanics? its no wonder his back hurts, and he has a hard time getting the ball down.

                          The Braves have better options.

                          The minors have plenty of guys with stories similar to Moylan that just never make it all the way (Ken Ray for example). By which I mean guys with good potential/talent/stuff, but problems with control, attitude, health, you name it. To go along with his well-known strikeouts in the WBC he also had a few walks to go with them if I'm not mistaken. The Braves only threw him what? A $30k contract? Thats practically just the normal minor league contract rate anyway. If he works out at all the Braves will look smart for getting him and if he doesn't few will notice because the expectations are low anyway.

                          More then anything after signing this guy, this callup is from the Braves really wanting to see what this guy has. With a pitcher that age, there isn't much point in letting them stay down in the minors to 'develop' anyway. No doubt both sides want to see whether or not Moylan has what it takes for the Majors so if he doesn't A) the Braves can cut him loose and B) he could go back home and not wallow in the minors halfway around the world from his family.

                          Plus pretty much all (but not all) pitchers that go the sidearm route have control problems. Its very difficult to get your mechanics down so you can throw that way with velocity and control. Your release point, and the way your wrist/hand position effect the ball's movement in a much different way then traditional delivery.

                          His roll would probably only be short relief anyway, so if they guy can hold it together for even only a couple of batters he would be able to get the job done.

                          • I'm going to the game tonight. The matchup will be Lidle vrs. Sosa. Anyone tell me if you see a kid with a braves spring training hat and a braves jersey.

                            P.S. My math teacher will be there and he is a phillies fan!!!

                              Yeah, i was pretty harsh on Moylan, my boys asked me to restrain the tough talk and let them do the talking, so im just going to read what you guys got, and try and get some of you to read the site.

                              Its some funny stuff, and they know what they are talking about, they welcome anyone writing in, and they will post it.

                              But i still like Kevin Barry better...

                              • Tonight's Game: Kyle Davies (0-0, 5.40 ERA) vs. Gavin Floyd (0-1, 10.12 ERA

                                OK, last night's game was brutal. Seemed like everyone was off daydreaming during the game. Certainly Sosa was, Bobby needs to give him some extra practice at his fundamentals. He walked Lidle on 5 pitches, then didn't cover first on that grounder Rollins hit to LaRoche. Renteria misplaying that ball afterwards was the straw that broke the camels back, leading to the Phillies scoring 2 runs. Bottom line is that we should have won last night.

                                The announcers kept talking about Franceour showing signs of breaking out of his slump, but going 1 for 4 with a single (2 strikeouts) didn't show me that. McCann and Betemit definitely looked impressive, leading the offense last night. Its great to see different guys carrying the team along with the ones you would expect. McCann was thrown out trying to make it home last night, but it was 2 outs with Sosa batting next so I think that the coach made the right call waving him home.

                                The offense is still pounding it out, the Braves really need Davies to go out there tonight and show everyone he belongs in the rotation with a real gem of a game.
