Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Braves got killed in game 1 of the DH (13-3), then retuned the favor in game 2 (14-0).

Smoltz went 7 strong in the 2nd game, didn't seem to be bothered by the pinky...

Yeah! Smoltz looked awful tough for an injured pinky, didn't he? 6-2 now with a lowering ERA. Now, let's see something done with Redman! I know I keep pounding this about Redman but he's just not getting it done for us. Wilson didn't work out even though he's a proven veteran so let's do something about Redman too. Either give someone else a chance from Richmond or any other Braves affiliate or trade Redman & get somebody else. Lerew hasn't looked good either over his past two starts but he's still young. I think Davies now has showed he belongs in the rotation but the #5 is definitely up in the air right now. Thanks!

Re: 2007 Atlanta Braves Discussion

What happened to Chad Poronto? In spring training he pitched pretty well and earned a roster spot because of his ability to get ground ball outs with his heavy sinker however he hasn't exactly pitched lights out since the regular season began. He has posted an 8.25 ERA in 12 Innings thus far. I may be in the minority on this one but if he continues to pitch this badly I don't really see any reason for the Braves to keep him especially considering how well Peter Moylan has been pitching. I say call up Hodges or someone else from AAA Richmond and let Poronto go if he is out of options.

Poronto hasn't been the same as last year indeed. However, he did go on the DL back a while ago but hasn't pitched well since his return. Actually, he wasn't exactly tearing things up to begin with from season's start. I see what you're implying about Poronto but the Braves really don't have anyone from Richmond that could fill his exact role in the bullpen. I have already campaigned for Hodges to get the call in place of Redman but he's not gonna play the same role because he's a starter. I need to go back & take a closer look at the bullpen players at Richmond to see if really anybody could replace Poronto. I honestly don't think there's anybody right now. Maybe from AA(Mississippi) or even lower but I'm thinking certainly not Richmond but I'll check to see. I have thought about Blaine Boyer but I don't know how good his numbers have been thus far. Thanks!

Edit: Well, Boyer hasn't been pitching long this season due to past injury. Stockman which has been called up before is doing OK but he too hasn't been in many games yet due to injury problems. Anyhow, here's their stats to view by links:

http://www.minorleaguebaseball.com/m...pbp&pid=430666

I think one of these two could be considered a replacement for Poronto if the Braves choose that route. Thanks!
