Smoltz got a win!!!! Cy Young baby!!!!!!!! And yes, the Kolb experiment has failed. I am also more of the opinion we should not move Smoltz back, especially if he is gonna get 3 or 4 runs run support. He can win 20 easy if that is the case. But something needs to be done about Kolb. Pulling your closer in the ninth? That\'s embarrassing.

Yes that was VERY embarrassing. And also by doing that, his confidence, well what was left of it, probably all went down the drain. Julio would be a solid pickup if we were willing to give up a promising prospect to Baltimore. But I\'m going to remain positive because it\'s only been 20 games. Kolb might get better... Leo will think of something I\'m sure.

papz, I think you need to go talk to Kolb and give him the same pep talk you were giving me. Maybe that will get his confidence back.

Two years ago he was Atlanta\'s top prospect... he never developed into the player everyone thought he was going to be. He was our third baseman of the future but now it\'s Marte. Betemit has very good power potential but I don\'t think he will ever hit for a high average. Kind of sad because I think the Braves and scouts put too much pressure on this guy. He was with our organization ever since he was 16 (Atlanta took a major fine after the league found out he was underaged when we signed him). But you never know with these Dominican players... Adrian Beltre didn\'t develop until he was 25/26 and look what kind of player he turned into. I\'m not giving up on him yet but I doubt if the Braves had to choose btw Marte and Betemit, Marte would win by a landslide. The Braves don\'t want to release him because they are afraid he will develop with someone else, so they will probably keep him as a platoon player on the bench for the next couple of years because he is out of options.

That pretty much covers it...

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

All little common sense goes a long way.

Thanks. Thought he sounded familiar. He came through pretty nice yesterday.

Tim Hudson vs. Mark Mulder tonight... it should be a great series. Playoff preview right here. On the side note Andruw had 3 hits yesterday... hopefully he can stay consistent and start doing what he did during spring training.

Hopefully, but I am not holding my breath. But good players do eventually break out of their slumps right? Look at A-Rod. I like that we are winning without Chipper, cause he was hitting pretty well and when he returns we should be that much better.

Mondesi won a game for us papz. He was hitting .200 with 2 hrs(both in the same game) and 10 RBIs before that. Bitter sweet.

I hope you are seeing that Jordan is hitting very well the past week or so... and he\'s moved up to the cleanup/5th spot in the lineup. Mondesi is getting his rbi\'s too. Classic Braves baseball anyways... get 3 runs and leave it to the pitching. Just imagine if they could average 4/5 runs a game, unbeatable.
