Ramblings about the Braves by True Braves Fans

Braves @ Reds, 5/31 or Why Soriano?

by @ 6:44 pm.   Filed under baseball players, braves, braves games, braves players
W: Francisco Cordero (2-0) L: Manny Acosta (3-2)


I realize that Soriano was the closer before he went on the DL, but I don’t think it was a good move to throw him back into the roll so soon, especially a one-run game on the road. While I realize that I am posting this after he gave up the lead, I honestly was wondering that when I saw he was out there pitching. I don’t think he necessarily needs to “earn” the role back, but he should have a few more innings under his belt than the one he pitched in the 8-1 win over Milwaukee.

I am also wondering if the scouting reports are begining to make the rounds on Jurrjens. He didn’t pitch great against Arizona on 5/26, and his control was horrible today. On a positve note though, I think we can safely say that Teixeira has finally warmed up. It couldn’t happen at a better time either, because teams are starting to pitch around Chipper more and more.

Finally, listen to me now, and believe me later, Jay Bruce will be the Rookie of the Year.

John Smoltz

In case you haven’t heard, John Smoltz had a setback with his rehab and will not be returning this month after all. Smoltz himself doesn’t seem very optimistic either:

“It could be anywhere between the [late May] timetable I discussed and a lot longer,” said Smoltz, 41, who reported discomfort following his Thursday and Saturday bullpen sessions. He said he doesn’t know yet whether he can pitch in games until the situation improves — or when it will improve.

You can read the full article here.

What do you think will happen with John Smoltz?

On another note I thought I would test out the ability to embed a video. Below is the unassisted triple play turned by Asdrubal Cabrera back on May 12th. I wanted to post a video of when Sid Slid, but I can’t find one. Any one know where one exists?
