Show #146: The Braves Pieces Come Together

A stunning 6 – 1 week.  Teheran’s debut.  Lowe trade rumors.  And a dearth of steals.

    Imagine the fear Hamels is feeling with Uggla, Freeman and Gonzo coming up in 6th. And if someone gets on, he will have to face Mather.

    Hi John J – welcome to the board.

    And how about Mather tonight? Fantastic.

    john j Says:

    I was right, he should have been fearful.

    john j Says:

    Mather seemed like a good pickup (versatile) and may very well pan out

    I hate umpires.

    NOBODY gets to talk about what a good average the team has with runners in scoring position until we actually GET ANOTHER HIT WITH RUNNERS IN SCORING POSITION!!!

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    And will somebody on the TV staff PLEASE tell Brian Jordan how to properly pronounce the Philly catcher’s name…

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    What game is Chip watching? “Linebrink made a good pitch”? If you had been watching, McCann was set up outside and he delivered the ball inside… The batter just happened to hit it straight at Uggla…

    john j Says:

    Any thoughts on when is it time to move Uggla lower in the lineup? 0-13 for McCann, Uggla and Freeman. Help!

    Steve Says:

    john j – I’m with you. Just tweeted that. And will likely be a topic on Sunday’s show.

    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Get ‘em on, get ‘em over, wave to them at second and/or third… usually with the bat…

    Steve Says:

    Aussie Kenman – re #95. You’re right. The management of his pitch count seems pretty indefensible. Forget the fact that he’s the #1 pitching prospect in ALL OF BASEBALL! and should be handled gingerly, but he’s clearly on the big club’s near term radar for this year, given his spot start last weekend. It makes no sense.

    Leah Says:

    If his name is Dan Uggla when he jacks one outta the park what’s his name when he strikes out with men on base…three times…in one game.

  14. 139
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    I’m with Brian Jordan (I think I threw up in my mouth a little…), tell Uggla to move up on the plate. He is so quick inside, dare them to try to get one by him… They are killing him with that pitch down and away…

  15. 140
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    Anybody remember the last Brave’s hit-and-run that DIDN’T end up as a strike ‘em out/throw ‘em out double play?

  16. 141
    Steve Says:

    #139 – Sooooo painfully true.

  17. 142
    Mark in Memphis Says:

    I think I figured it out…

    Heyward is a Klingon and believes that “warriors do not complain about pain”…

    Nate Says:

    Looks like Beachy may have hurt his Chipper. Not good.

    Anybody bidding on Black Cracker Jerseys? Hmmm??

    Prado looks like he has shin splints.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Fredi, speaking about Heyward:

    “I asked him and he said, I can play defense, but I can’t swing the bat yet.”

    I take that as a very good sign Heyward is changing his attitude. Sigh of relief.

    Steve Says:

    Not so happy thought for the night … Halladay is 4-0 with a 1.26 ERA in five career appearances (four starts) against Atlanta.

  23. 148
    Bubdylan Says:

    Yes, but Freddie Freeman has a 5.000 OPS against Halladay. :)

    (It’s true.)

  24. 149
    Bubdylan Says:

    On a more serious note, Uggla has a 1.158 OPS against him and the old man has a 1.800 OPS versus Halladay.

  25. 150
    Steve Says:

    Bub – it would be great to see Uggla bust out Sunday but I’ve officially grown hopeless at this point.
