5: journalist talks baseball . . .


by journalist jimmy smith

oh, the humanity! so many good baseball bloggers here now. welcome! soon, a guest blogger will post a new blog, but for now, journalist jimmy smith has this to say: we slowed down the blog! congratulations, bloggers!

now, baseball . . . will the mitchell report really make a difference? looks to jimmy smith like the report is in and now it’s business as usual. baseball is waiting for someone else to clean up the game? if the braves organization wants to lead, now is the time.

and if a team really prospers when it is sound “up the middle” what can be expected of these braves? questions remain. who will fill the key spots? how sound will the defense be? let’s hear what you think. jjs

    toes in the news: jim edmonds is said to be slowly recovering from toe surgery. a big-toe injury has had lingering effects for brandon inge. but the effects aren’t just with the toe anymore — it has transferred all the way up to his back. toes are not to be trifled with. all the important toe news can be found on this blog.

    and now, up the middle . . . mccann’s defense . . . will it improve? can aging pitchers field their position and become an extra infielder? is escobar an improvement at short? will kelly be sound at second? and who will patrol center field? this team has questions to answer up the middle. good teams are strong there. will this team be strong?

    Morning….. Stronger left side, hopefully Kelly has worked on moving to his right this winter, perhaps needs lessons from Bob, J. We will have to see if McCann’s new wife has taught him to drop to his knees or if he will be looking to pancake throws in the dirt. Still needs to work on his throws to second. At least he is not tossing them to center field like Murphy use to.

    No matter who plays center, there is going to be a drop off. All comes down to pitching. Pitching to contact is good idea if you aren’t Chuck James. Boy allows just a little too much contact. Just hope the players can keep on their toes rather than back on their heels. Very little has been said about heel health on this or any other blog. It is very beneficial to be well heeled I would think. Of course most players say steroids help them to become well healed. Maybe some are just heels….. Not heard of any being toed…. Except Andruw, maybe he has a fetish for fancy cars which could lead to being towed.
