F....that means Horacio comes back to take Davies spot. What do we do with Sosa? Please let Chuck James get a shot in his place.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Yeah please give James a shot. Sosa is terrible.

Kyle Davies is expected to go on the disabled list after hurting his right groin in his start against the Marlins on Monday night.
"Davies has got a real problem," manager Bobby Cox said. "We don't know if it's torn or pulled or what. He's going to be out for a while. We'll have to disable him for sure." Cox was disappointed after Davies admitted that he was feeling soreness prior to the game. "But he didn't tell anybody," the manager said, sounding a little perturbed. "He didn't tell the trainers, he didn't tell Roger (McDowell, the pitching coach) and he certainly didn't tell me." The Braves will likely call up a starter to pitch this weekend. Horacio Ramirez could step in for Davies next week, keeping Jorge Sosa in the rotation for a little longer.
That doesn't sound good. There's got to be a better option than Sosa. How's Lerew doing in Richmond? What about Ken Ray, does he have starter experience in the minors?

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Ray does have some starting experience in the minors. Unfortunately, if we take him out of the pen we lose statistically our best reliever... And Lerew's off to a bit of a rough start in Richmond...

Chuck James was just sent on a rehab assignment, hopefully he'll be ready to go soon and get a shot at the rotation. Of course Horacio Ramirez should be back soon, too...

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Rematch of last week in Hudson Vs Willis. I'm hoping for the same outcome.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

I was looking at an article on MLB.com about Future Closer for Fantasy baseball and one analyst brought up and intriguing guy, Sosa. That's right, Jorge Sosa. I thought about it, I say he is definatly a good relief pitcher and if Reitsma struggles, then it is up for grabs who gets te closers job. Sosa coud be a fator.

Jorge Sosa, Atlanta Braves
By far the most frustrating category to predict and dominate in fantasy baseball, saves endlessly confound, disappoint and shock owners as closers are demoted, promoted, injured and rescued from the proverbial scrap heap. Only the most wily of owners succeed as "saves speculators," and to that end I sheepishly recommend grabbing the Braves' Jorge Sosa from your league's waiver wire. Yes, Sosa sports a "robust" 6.52 ERA and 1.83 WHIP as a starter, but the impending return of Horacio Ramirez to the Atlanta rotation as well as the continuing struggles of incumbent closer Chris Reistma suggest Sosa might become a factor in the not-too-distant future. Championship clubs are born from an occasional risk taken, so consider Sosa a "so-so" option if you're desperate for saves.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

I think Sosa *could* be a decent closer. Just from watching him, he seems to do all right the first time through the order... 2nd & 3rd time is where he gets into trouble.

And only having to go one inning at a time, he could really let loose that high-90s heater.

He did really well as a reliever in the WBC, didn't he?


Back to the game, Braves down 1-0 through 4....

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Matt Diaz continues his hot hitting, solo shot. Braves down 2-1 in the 5th...

By the way, it seems the plan is for Chuck James to build up his arm strength and stamina in the minors and eventually join the rotation. Possibly in early June, taking Sosa's spot.

The Braves will likely call up either Anthony Lerew or Travis Smith to start Saturday. After that, the Braves can activate Horacio Ramirez to assume the rotation spot.


Huddy with 10 K's, Braves still down 2-1 in the 6th...
