Creativity Requested...

We are not in a typical situation this trade season. In fact, our situation is extremely unique.  First of all, we can't be sure if Schafer is going to keep it up and be as good of a CF as we'd...

A radical look at division shuffling

How bad we want Schafer to thrive

Some might be thinking that the biggest hole in the lineup is center field, and that it's the place to upgrade with a trade regardless of Schafer's performance.  However, many of the available...

Wagner - 2nd lowest career ERA in the live ball era

1

Mariano Rivera's career ERA is 2.22 Wagner's is 2.31 No one else in the top 6 pitched later than '90 (meaning, none of the other guys besides these two had to dance around the steroid era). Hall of Famer? YES

Freeman in May

6

Thus far it seems the prediction that he would take some time to adjust to the league has proven true--So too has the prediction that he would be able to do so successfully. In April he hit 225/324/393 In May he hit 282/351/400 before his 2-4 day today. Lookin good Freddie. He hit one more homer in April and a couple more doubles, I'm looking for a big month of June, keeping the average up and adding some extra base hits.

Utley's knee

25

First I wanna say, by no means do I want to celebrate an injury to anyone.. I just wanted to throw this out there and ask some questions.. Obviously Brown is out till at least May, and they are saying he won't have much power all year even still. I would be surprised if there weren't further complications either. What I want to ask about Utley's knee is, if he is struggling with tendentious before the season has gotten going, how likely is it that it won't bother him throughout the season? Is this the kind of thing that is going to demand extra off days? Will it decrease production when he plays? Is it going to limit his abilities as a defensive 2Basemen? Any docs or trainers here at TC wanna chime in? I would consider it real bad news for the Phillies to see these injuries. Without Utley, their thinning offense is substantially less imposing.

Pujols to the Braves - its worth dreaming about

26

Say whatever about bleacherreport, it's a fun question to play with... and I am all about freddy.. but come on, this is pujols, we gotta talk about it.. could the braves be just that team where he would play for a little less because our image isn't the money bags? Because that's what people are going to be saying about him for leaving in the first place.. if he goes to the yankees he is a strait sell out, or the mets pretty much. Coming to the braves might be the best move! How much would our revenue go up? In merchandise sales, and televised games, and playoff appearances?? I'd say some millions.. 11 year 280 mil contract

Payroll summation The Braves seem to have about $3-$5 million remaining to spend. This figure could change if they are able to move Kawakami or possibly secure a multi-year deal that would provide a little less than the $10 million figure he's projected to receive via arbitration this year. whattttt? kk is going through arb. and will get 10 not 7?

the last section is on the incredible strikeout rates of our two back end pitchers.. We could throw a masterpiece with our bullpen I think 9. Wagner 8. Saito 7. Venters 6. Kimbrel 5. Moylan 4.

Tommy Hanson enters Monday's start against the Marlins at 10-11 with a 3.51 ERA. He is the only Braves pitcher in the modern era (since 1966) to make at least 30 starts and post a 3.51 ERA or better. Warren Spahn and (1952) and Denny Lemaster (1963) are the only members of the franchise to do so since 1950.
