    The Atlanta Braves Discussion and Collectors Thread

    We seem to have a good group of Braves' fan on this site. Figure it would be good to start one of these.

    Lowe pitched great today. 3 IP, 0 hits, 1 run, 2 BBs, 3 K against Venezuela...their lineup is pretty good to. Run scored on a walk, SB, and two wild pitches.

    Chipper and BMac homered for the US.

    Anybody else excited by the new season? The pitching staff looks like it's shaping up pretty good.

    Anyone know why Vazquez hasn't pitched yet?

    This will be a very intriguing season for sure! We have a lot of interesting pieces, and if they're healthy, I think we can hang with the Phillies, Mets, and Marlins.

    85 sounds about right, to get more than that I think you have to say either Frency and someone else (Kotchman?) will suprise on offense or Kawakami and the bullpen will be strong... Personally, if the braves make a run at a wildcard I think it will be a result of better than expected pitching

    oh, and McCann is going to his 4th straight all-star game... maybe people will start to notice, considering he is only turning 25 this month
    Let me know if anyone runs across any Autos /25 of Braves players from 2000 UD Hologrfx Piece of the Series GU Base Set

    Doubt it...has to be one of the most underrated guys in the hobby.

    I also think 85 sounds about right, but if KK produces the team could hit 90...I'm going to be optimistic and say over 85.

    ~yeah would have bid but would rather pick up a lars anderson chrome at that price~

    I ended up second highest, didnt have the funds to put in an appropriate bid but still almost ended up winning, kinda sad... I'll show off some of my recent hauls soon

    So what are people's take on Frenchy? Bounceback year (aka hits like 2007, around average for a RF), sucks like last year, or somewhere in between? If he still isn't hitting by say July 1, do you throw in the towel and trade/promote someone else?

    Personally I think he'll be ok this year, but not quite up to an average RF, and the Braves will be looking at trading/non-tendering him next year. Hewyard is coming, they can start fresh, and given how they rolled over on his salary this year if he improves some from last year he'll be due to get more than he's worth.

    Oh, and I put May 15th as the over under before Blaine Boyer's arm falls off, considering how Bobby tried to kill him last year

    Vazquez did pitch in a camp game last Monday, I also think he's part of the WBC.

    I'd also take the over on 85 wins, but I'm a homer.

    Great thread guys, we do have quite a large following of Braves fans here.

    Kind of a silly little impulse buy last night. I thought the auto looked really nice on it.

    He pitched on Tuesday, so it's gonna be Sunday/Monday at the earliest, I would assume.
