Braves 07 pre-Pre Season

Well, I didn't do a great job keeping up with the Blog last year, I think I kind of gave up last year after a rash of less-than-great performances from people we were really hoping better of. Last week Chipper Jones gave a pre season interview to the AJC where he seems in good spirits going into the season. It should be interesting just seeing what the bullpen and team are going to look like. LaRoche got traded in a deal with a few players including Mike Gonzalez of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Looks like theres some more moving around and tweaking to look forward to. Hopefully people can stay healthy and we can get a glimpse of things to come in Spring Training, which is right around the corner... More soon. GOOO BRAVES!

No End To June Drought Yet for Braves

I had the best Braves Tickets last week I have yet to get - Dugout seats, next to my Braves to see them play the Toronto Blue Jays. I even brought my trusty Nikon to mark the occasion with some photos (Will post pics later).
The day was awesome. Had green zone parking passes and everything. For the first seven innings, the Braves put together a good game and Horacio kept us in a lead. Just as soon as he comes off they put in three more pitchers to try and do their job, finish, but they didn't...
The Braves ended up giving the lead to the Blue Jays despite a great last-ditch effort from Diaz, Francoeur, some pinch hitting, and almost from Chipper, who slammed the ball with men on base and 2 strikes in bottom of the 9th, but couldn't get it out of reach from the Jays' outfielders.
That game makes it 11 losses in a row... let's hope the Braves keep their chins up. We've got games this weekend at Florida. Let's GO BRAVES!!!!

Atlanta Looks to rebound vs the Padres

The season has started for the Atlanta Braves, but it's been a bit of a lackluster start for the season - despite losses and bad showings by Davies and even veteran Tim Hudson. As a matter of fact, Kyle Davies let three homers and five runs go in the first inning vs the Phillies the other day. That may be the worst first inning I've personally ever seen. Then again, it seems just like normal history repeating itself with a shaky start for the Braves, but let's all hope it gets better from here.

On the Horizon, we've got Francoer who some see as turning around his rusty start with just 2 hits so far from his 35 at bats, as well we get to see if Tim Hudson can make up his bad showing versus both the Dodgers, where he couldnt record an out in the fifth, and versus the Giants where he gave up another slew of runs in the second inning on Saturday.

On top of this We've got to worry about Sosa's performance - was he a one season wonder? One has to ask the question...

Despite all this, we've got stallwarts like Smoltz, and Giles despite injury still pullin it through. It's always been the core like that that allow the rest to get back into the swing of things in the past, and hopefully come soon, the Braves'll have their act back. For now, that's all. Ive got great club tix, and I'm going to go and watch my Braves tonite, and hope that everything comes together, and we see the Padres go DOWN!. GO BRAVES!!!

Braves News says Giles ready to work with some change

Hey all, just read interesting bit on the Atlanta Braves site concerning Marcus Giles and some of the changes in the Atlanta Braves Ballclub. Giles has a new double play partner with Edgar Renteria replacing Rafael Furcal at the shortstop position. Question looming in many Atlanta Braves fans' minds is whether the two will be able to meld with the same kind of action that Furcal and Giles had for a majority of Giles' MLB career. Will the new Duo strike gold and help sell many Atlanta Braves Tickets, and propel the Braves into another Pennant win? We'll soon see!
Here's the article.
