Baseball Chatter Aug 8

There were so many times last year where our pitcher would be knocked out before the fourth inning and you absolutely decimate your bullpen and end up having to make three or four roster moves each day. We rushed some pitchers up here who weren’t ready and, candidly, some who were just not good. We didn’t have anywhere else to go. We used our money on young players, not on back-of-the-rotation starters. Acquiring these three pitchers allows time for our young pitchers to develop and creates competition — we have moved past the time where jobs are handed out like candy at Halloween. All three of these pitchers are as good off the field as they are on the field, and we feel our young pitchers will and have learned from them. Finally, all three signed one-year deals, so it’s not like six years and $200 million where it will block our prospects and cripple our payroll. We feel these moves make the Braves better in the short and long term. John Coppolella
  • Some think the Braves are moving their prospects too quickly through the minors as many are ineffective and need to be sent back down.

  • What happens when a team gets stupid about the shift with a runner on third, 2 strikes and two outs in the bottom of the seventh?
    • The pitcher gets flustered and balks in the winning run.
