this is a discussion within the NOLA Community Forum; Apparently can\'t win a series against the Exp, err, um, Nats either. Mondesi sucks, as I figured he would. Chipper is hitting well, as is Andrew and LaRoche but they seem to be in the minority. Why is Giles always ...

Why is Giles always hurt? And furcal, what the hell is he doing? Jordan is sucking also. I knew this would come back to bite us. Damnit!!!!

Damn Whodi...10 games in and already it\'s Mondesi sucks (2 dingers last night), Furcal -- what the hell is he doing -- 2 dingers of his own last night and 2 stolen bases right? Jordan is sucking also? I don\'t know if I\'d want anybody else at the plate with runners in scoring position (ok, maybe chipper). Giles is hurt often, but he plays head first. Smoltz may be 0-2, but he should be 1-1.

Which priorities should be re-thought? It\'s a LONG season man! Cheer up!

Just messing with papz saintfan. We had a long back and forth before the season started and he got me to put my faith in some of these guys. Just throwing some pessimism at him when they don\'t do well. Trust me, I know it\'s a long season, and the way we came on in the second half last year, I know it\'s always our division. Just gotta papz every now and then.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOO Kolb!!!! BOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Mondesi sucks still. BOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Hampton was great and Kolb blows it again. Fantastic. If Steinbrenner can call out the Yanks this early I can call out the Braves.

I think Mondesi is gonna come around Whodi...he\'s showing signs, but I\'m all about boooooooo-ing Kolb. We\'ve already shipped off one guy out of the pen. Mabye Kolb should be next?

I want Kolb moved to middle relief and Smoltz as the closer again. Now I will grant Smoltz has pitched well for the most part, but blowing saves is not tolerable. Kolb is 0-2 but has given away 3 games. We could possibly have 3 more ticks on the win side and 3 less on the loss side if Smoltz was closing instead of Kolb.

As far as Mondesi goes, I guess we will have to wait and see. Is he hitting under .200 again after yesterday? I don\'t see him just turning it on. I hope I am wrong but he has done nothing the past few years to make me feel differently.

Agreed on the Smoltz thing. I LOVE the guy as a starter, but with the Braves offense I get the feeling we\'ll be in a few 1 run games and the closer is key.

As for Mondesi, yeah, we\'ll have to see, but Julio is gonna teach the boy to hit. I have faith...

Father time Julio Franco? lol What is he 60? Hopefully someone teaches Mondesi how to hit cause after 11 games, besides one spark(2 home run game) it has been a colassal failure to me. I wasn\'t sold on Jordan either but he seems to be doing okay. We\'ll see how that goes over the course of an entire season.

Bah... that damn Kolb keeps on blowing saves. Maybe we should consider trading for a reliever and Baltimore and Minnesota has loads of talent in their bullpen. Jordan has been playing well and it looks like Mondesi might just be around the corner. Our starting pitching has been rock solid it\'s just that we need Furcal (STOP TRYING TO BE A POWER HITTER AND GET YOUR ARSE ON BASE ) to get on base more and our bullpen to hold the lead. We\'ll be fine... look at the Yankees. Do you think they are going to stay at the losing pace that they are in? We\'ll win the division again unless the Marlins keep on pitching like that.

Keep Smoltz in the starting group, he\'s been great besides the first game. Hampton is pitching lights out... 20 game winner?

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Now with Kolb closing. Kolb needs to be moved to set up man, and Smoltz back to the closer\'s role. If he really wants to help this team, that\'s the way to go. With Hampton and Hudson, we would still have a solid 1-2.

And where is all this Mondesi faith coming from? He is turning the corner to what, hit .200? I am giving this guy no slack cause I felt before the season started he would be a failure. He has proven me more right than wrong. But we shall see.
