Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Don't really follow the other sports all that closely, so I'm just looking ahead to the offseason and what moves we might make... bring on the Hot Stove League!

If we weren't done a couple weeks ago we definitely are now. We needed to win atleast 2 out of 3 against the Mets to still have a chance and that didn't happen so put a fork in us. Lets get a couple quality starters and a bench player this offseason and get 'em next year.

Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

It sucks because I really believed that this team would make the playoffs but there are just too many flaws to overcome. Renteria has to be traded in the offseason for a #3 pitcher. I wonder what kind of record we'd have in Andruw was having a typical Andruw season? I don't think it would be enough to get us into the playoffs or anything but we'd certainly be in a better position than this dump we're in right now.

Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Andruw could have had a 50 HR season batting .290 and we would have still been in the position we are in right now. If the starting pitching outside of Hudson and Smoltz was this bad and couldn't go deep into the games, the bullpen would be just as overstretched as it is now.

This **** sucks. We need to go 12-2 in the next 14 games to even have a shot. And that was just a random number.

I know we still wouldn't be in the playoffs but we'd be a little closer if Andruw didn't completely suck this year. But yeah, in the end it all came down to starting pitching and we just didn't have enough.

Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Yep, as it always does. Starting pitching is just way too important every year.

Everyone should be fired for relying on Mike Hampton to actually stay injury-free.

Chipper rips umps

Quote:
"We throw a pitch right down the middle to [Ryan] Howard that's called a ball, next pitch is a homer that's frustrating," Jones said. "We get balls called on us in our batter's boxes, seven inches off the plate. That's frustrating. So you're seeing a lot of frustration being taken out out there on the field, and you're going to continue to see it from now on as long as the officiating is abysmal. Major League Baseball ought to be ashamed. It's abysmal. It's awful. Not all of them, but some of them. It's awful."

He was putting into words the frustration he felt as he threw his helmet into the ground running to first base on a groundout in the seventh inning that stranded a runner with the Braves trailing 4-2.

"The first pitch that was called on me in a very important at-bat was seven to eight inches off the plate," Jones said. "Seven to eight inches. The first pitch to me with the bases loaded [in the fifth inning] was in my batter's box inside. Now you tell me how I'm supposed to hit that. It's abysmal. It's awful."
Quote:
"We have got to get QuesTec here in this ballpark," he said. "Got to. Umpires have got to be held accountable. That's Little League World Series stuff right there. It's a joke, and I'm tired of it. Baseball can fine me whatever they want. I do not care. Somebody's got to say something. I got more walks than strikeouts in my career. I know what a strike is. ...

"I think in certain ballparks, they know they're not going to be graded, plain and simple. So why not try and get the game over with as quick as they can? They have planes to catch on getaway day just like we do."

He added: "They're not allowing us to do our job, all we ask is a fair fight. Give us a chance to do our job. The stinking catchers are back there chuckling. It's a joke."
