When Beachy gets back Braves will have a wealth of riches in starting pitching
When Beachy returns who goes to bullpen? Hudson, Medlen, Minor, Maholm, Teheran then add Beachy ??
Gotta be Medlen. He's already got experience in the pen. Wished they send Hudson down because hes the worst of them all at the moment but they won't because he's Tim Hudson.
I kinda hope they ask Hudson, and I bet if they did, he'd be amenable. He hasn't looked good most of the year. Medlen's W/L record is bad, but his ERA is pretty good. Guy just can't get any run support. I'd love the idea of a Teheran, Minor, Maholm, Medlen, Beachy rotation, with a rested Hudson available for long relief.
Beachy will probably start in the bullpen. I doubt they throw him into the rotation right away.
Yup I was about to say the same thing. I'm almost positive that Beachy starts out in the BP. Injuries happen to pitchers often so who knows if our current 5 stay healthy.
I really wish we would go to a 6 man rotation, would save arms for postseason play and would be cool to see. This won't happen but I would be all in.
Huddy should pull a Smoltz and be a long inning reliever and setup man, IMO. Huddy just had a fantastic start but it was against a bottom 3 offense (Nationals) and I would like to see 3-4 quality starts in a row.
Impossible to know what Freddi will do when Beachy returns (besides Beachy starting out in the BP). Huddy has seniority and the other 4 starters have been solid.
Man this is going to help the BP sooo much. We'll have Beachy, then probably Medlen, or Huddy but I see Medlen eventually ending up in the BP even though I would rather Huddy in the BP.
Either way, it's a great luxury to have. Most underrated starting 5 in MLB bc we don't have a power arm. It shows you how solid they are by not knowing which of our start 5 to put in the BP. Love this team and this will definitely help soften the blow of losing Venters/O'Flahrity.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
Had this same thought with friends the other day
Hudson won't go because Barners don't disappear easily
Minor is arguably our ace
Maholm in the pen is laughable at best
It sure as hell won't be Beachy because he was a our best pitcher when he got hurt last year
Teaheran has come on
Medlan is the one that makes sense. Like you said, has more experience in the pen and can easily be pushed back into the rotation if a starter gets hurt
Here's to hoping the Braves draft Bobby Wahl
PositivePete- Dasshatriggeman is a bama plant on this site. His dugie houser underling always up votes him.
RIP Lil Julio
Other than bag work and hitting, Freddie is a lumbering oaf.
What the fuck is up with the umps this year!!' He was safe and it wasn't even close!
Absolute bullshit trash shit dammir
Goodness Uggla has been on FIRE for 2-3 weeks. People forget he had like a 33 game hit streak not too long ago and 5 years in a row with at least 30 HR's.
Man if he turns into the Uggla of his Florida days.. Ain't noone going to stop us.. He has the talent to do a lot of good things.
This was nuts. Pre-game yesterday.
Btw, no effing clue how the hell he got out of the 1st with only 1 run.
As you'll soon see, conditions are favorable for the Braves' Mike Minor to post a 2.52 ERA against the Dodgers on Sunday.
BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
What do we do about our pitching right now? In terms on who should go to the bullpen, it should be Hudson. But having veteran status that will not happen. First, before we possibly move a pitcher let's have Beachy make a minimum of 3 starts to make sure he his arm is fine. Assuming Beachy regains form and pitches at a solid No. 3 starter level. Ranking of the current pitching we have: Minor, Medlen, Beachy, Teheran, Maholm, then Hudson. I really like Hudson but he's nothing more than an average to below average pitcher at this point and I don't us to keep a player on our roster due to loyalty.
They won't move Hudson this season.
Medlen back to the 'pen.
My thoughts exactly
Duh. That's why we're the best Arkansas and Bama posters on tBB. I win bc I'm the only Hog fan here.
That makes sense moving Medlen back to the pen but he's all ready come out and spoke against the move. I guess there isn't much he can do from that stand point. Last year he pitched a career high in innings maybe they want to do a Strasburg type move with Medlen so he will not blow his arm out.
Tehran looks like a different pitcher.
Well that was a wild finish.
B U M P
Thanks man I couldn't find it to bump
We stacked. Offense is on another level. Dumbass Freddie sits McCann when he's hit 3-4 HRs in 4 games. Hate it and Upton is getting on a roll cuz
BJ looks sooooo bad. Based on what the announcers say, he does the same leg kick that he knows is screwing up hid at bats.
