Show #259: The Braves Build Their Lead in the East

10 games above .500. Minor’s return. Gattis’ offense. Why is Uggla still starting? And checking in on the bullpen.

    Mark @49, I would like to see them go back to a top of the order like this:

    1. Heyward
    2. Justin Upton
    3. Freeman
    4. Gattis
    5. Chris Johnson
    6. B.J. Upton
    7. Andrelton Simmons
    8. Dan Uggla

    I would like to see B.J.’s speed in front of Simmons’ contact ability so that when Simmons makes contact, B.J. can fly.

    @51

    I could live with that line-up. Potentially getting one of our “best hitters” (based on recent performance) J Up an extra AB in the game is not a bad idea…

    What do you do when you give Gattis a day off?

    Do you leave it or juggle?

    well, we’ve found offensive consistency. I miss the inconsistent version …

    @60 – So true. And today is the best Giants starter of the bunch.

    I have a feeling this weeks show isn’t going to be very positive.

    So, DOB is saying that Simmons was benched for “Sliding into first base last night” that’s called a family matter?? If that’s true!!! I’m upset as a Braves fan!! You bench Simmons but you play Uggla like he’s the best player we got????

    Shot in the dark. We will never win again.

    I can’t stress enough. Maybe we need to find someone that don’t mind helping stress the basics. Smoltz, Maddux, Glavine and all Braves pitchers used to help themselves. We need more of that.

    Then we need for Fredie to fix this lineup. Uggla needs to go! Time for La Stella. At least he will get on base. Doesn’t strike out much and I bet runs better and faster than Uggs. Face it we need another shot of contact hitter in that line up. I’m actually a person who believes you don’t need a accomplished ball player to be a hitting coach. But at this point. I’ll take TP back. When I’d like is for guys to try and cut down on their swing at times.
