The year is 1982. I have taken over as general manager of the Atlanta Braves for Mr. John Mullen, who had other pressing concerns. It is my duty to take the Braves to the top and keep them there.

Trade 1
Braves get: 2B Damaso Garcia (80)
Blue Jays get: 2B Glenn Hubbard (80)

Analysis: In a straight-up trade of second basemen, the Braves traded their young expert fielder Hubbard for another good fielder with similar talent in Garcia. Purely a cost-cutting move, saving a little less than $7 million, but we were lucky in that Dasamo seems to be a nice talent.

Winner: Atlanta

Trade 2
Braves get: 1B Willie Stargell (77)
Pirates get: 1B Chris Chambliss (77)

Analysis: Some might question this cost-cutting move, as Stargell is in the twilight of his career, but he still has an immense amount of power for someone who is 42 years old. Chambliss still has a few more years to go before his decline, some say.

Winner: Pittsburgh

Trade 3
Braves get: CF Otis Nixon (65/88), P Brad Arnsberg (63/75)
Yankees get: P Rick Camp (77), P Al Hrabosky (75/75)

Winner: Atlanta

Analysis:
Rick Camp, an average pitcher with a $7.7 million contract and Al Hrabosky is an average older pitcher with a $4.2 million contract, albatrosses around the neck of the organization. So what do we do? Unload the contracts on the Yankees, get a quality outfield and pitching prospect, and save nearly $12 million. :D

Lineup
LF Brett Butler (77/79) - His real strengths are in running (92), his eye at the plate (90) and his fielding (94). A real bright spot from the Braves' farm system, he should be their leadoff hitter for years to come.
RF Claudell Washington (79) - After a nice 1974-1975 start with the Oakland Athletics, Washington hasn't really panned out, going to Texas, the White Sox, the New York Mets, and now the Atlanta Braves. He has contact, power and speed in the low 80s.
CF Dale Murphy (88) - The face of the offense of the franchise. He had a career-high 33 home runs and 88 RBIs in 1980.
1B Willie Stargell (77) - The heart and soul of the Pittsburgh Pirates for most of his 21 years of his career, Stargell was brought in to provide some pop and more veteran leadership to a very young team.
3B Bob Horner (80) - A big bopper for the Braves ever since being inserted directly into the lineup in 1978, Horner also had a career year in home runs in 1980.
2B Damaso Garcia (80) - Garcia, an acquistion from the Blue Jays, has good range and arm, and is an above average in contact and speed.
SS Rafael Ramirez (78/87) - Ramirez's range is excellent and within a few years, he could be a quality shortstop.
C Bruce Benedict (77) - His batting eye is above average and so his is arm, sounds like a good recipe to throw out people. :D

Bench
C Matt Sinatro (67/77)
3B Jerry Royster (71)
RF Terry Harper (66)
1B Ken Smith (67)
3B Biff Pocoroba (75)
LF Rufino Linares (69)

Starters
Phil Niekro (86) - The most talented 40-something pitcher in this game today, Niekro has been there and done that, and his knuckler is still dancing with the best of them.
Bob Walk (81) - Another young talent who joined the Braves last season, Walk has above average power and an above average curve.
Rick Mahler (81) - A pitcher who came up in 1978 with the Braves, Mahler impresses with his slow curve and pitching power. His defense is marveled at by the Braves scouts.
Pascual Perez (78) - A young talent the Braves picked up from the Pirates has excellent pitching power and an above average slider and control.
Tommy Boggs (75/77) - Probably the weak link in the Braves' rotation, he has had only one good year (1980: 12-9, 3.42) since joining Atlanta from the Texas Rangers.

Bullpen
Closer - Gene Garber (81) - This veteran pitcher, obtained from the Phillies in 1978 has done nothing but solidify the Braves' position at closer, giving them a dependable 56 saves over the 3 1/2 years he has been a Brave, even through 1979 when he lost 16.
Setup - Steve Bedrosian (78/81) - Another young gun, Bedrosian looks to solidify his role here, having excellent power and an expectional slider and fastball.
Short - Donnie Moore (75) - His strength is his power and fastball.
Short - Larry McWilliams (79) - The Braves have an array of powerful young pitchers, McWilliams's strength being in his forkball.
Middle - Ken Dayley (75/77) - Lookie, lookie, another Young Gun :) Dayley's power and fastball once again impress, as they are excellent and above average.
Long - Preston Hanna (74) - Unfortunately, he's the weak link in the bullpen, but he should do well. Above average power and defense are his specality, his best pitch his 12-6 curve, and that's just average.

The first two serires were qualified successes for the Braves against the Cardinals. :) Bob Horner led the slugging charge with five home runs and 13 RBIs. Phil Niekro, Pascual Perez, Rick Mahler and Bob Walk all pitched games where they held the Cards to one run each. Each of the games were decided in the early innings, with the Braves' slugging their way to victory each time.

The only truly close game was the sixth game, with the Braves scoring first in the second when Bob Horner led off with a towering home run way beyond the left-field fence. As Chief Noc-A-Homa danced victouriously for the blast, Horner trotted around the bases and staked the Braves to a 1-0 lead. It would stay that way until the fourth. After Lonnie Smilth tapped a ball weakly back to Mahler, Keith Hernandez promptly tied the game with a homer to right. The Chief didn't dance for this one. ;) Mahler and Andy Rincon then settled down and neither allowed anymore runs for a while. Double plays killed runners for both teams. In the sixth, Brett Butler led off with a triple over Lonnie Smith's head, but Claudell Washington and Dale Murphy struck out and Horner grounded to short. Mahler pitched for two more innings and Steve Bedrosian relieved him in the ninth, where he got two fly balls to Washington and Tommy Herr, who walked with one out, was caught trying to steal second by an excellent throw from Bruce Benedict and sweeping tag by Damaso Garcia.

In the bottom of the ninth, with Rincon still pitching for the Cadinals, Murphy grounded out to Ken Oberkfell. Bob Horner then singled smartly to center. Willie Stargell then stepped to the plate. On a 2-2 count, he pulled back and smacked a fly ball to deep left. Steve Braun was playing a little shallow and the ball landed at the wall, bounded off it and started to roll back to the infield, causing him to chase it. With both slow men turning on their jets, Stargell was nearing third as the ball reached Ozzie Smith, who quickly fired to Darrell Porter at the plate to try to get Horner, but Horner was into his slide already and his hand grazed the plate just as Porter's full glove bopped him on the helmet. The umpire swung out his arms and the Braves piled onto the field, overtaken with joy at the exciting finish, the crowd cheering with them.

There was every reason to think that the Braves would continue their winning ways against the Mets, but it was the New Yorkers that got the drop on the Braves in the first game of their series. Ellis Valentine and Rusty Staub had three-run homers and John Stearns had an RBI single as the Mets made it 7-1 by the end of 4 1/2 innings. The only Braves run came on a Horner homer to right-center. The Braves made it 7-4 with two singles, a double and two more signles in the bottom of the eighth, but the Mets tacked on two more.

In the next game, the Braves took the lead 1-0, lost it, took a 2-1 lead, lost it, took a 3-2 lead and... you guessed it, lost it. It was 3-3 going into the bottom of the ninth. Jerry Royster and Brett Butler both grounded out to Tom Veryzer and Jose Oquendo. Claudell Washington then stepped up to the plate. On an 0-1 count, Allen fired a fastball. Washington was ready, smacking the ball into the right-center field stands and sending Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium into a leaping frenzy, and Washington met his teamates at the plate, shaking hands, hugs, and whacking him on the helmet playfully.

In the third game, the Braves were staked out a 2-0 lead when Bob Horner smacked a 358-foot home run to right for two RBIs, driving in the hero of yesterday's game Claudell Washington, who met Horner at the plate with a well-deserved pat on the back amid the cheers of adoring fans.

The game went into the ninth with Atlanta still up 2-0, and Phil Niekro had allowed just three hits, but George Foster promptly greeted him with a 3-1 homer to left. Gene Garber came in to replace him and gave up three singles. The Mets tied it. In the bottom of the inning, Dale Murphy led off with a walk and advanced on a groundout to second. Willie Stargell struck out, but Damaso Garcia lined a single past the outstretched glove of Jose Oquendo, and Dale Murphy raced around to score the winning run and give the Braves their second final at-bat win of the season.

A bit of fluctuating on this road trip. The Braves got off to a good start in the first game. Bruce Benedict homered over the left field fence firs to give the Braves a 1-0 lead. Mike Schmidt made it 2-1 Phillies with a home run in the fourth, hitting an opposite-field shot to right, scoring Manny Trillo ahead of him. In the top of the fifth, Claudell Washington on first with two out, Willie Stargell absolutely slammed a pitch to center, he just had the biggest grin on his face when he crossed the plate. The home run was measured at 438 feet. In the top of the ninth, veteran Ron Reed, former Brave, came in to pitch for the Phillies. Bruce Benedict walked and Bob Waslk pulled a single past Manny Trillo. Brett Butler then lofted a fly ball to right. Dick Davis looked like he had a beat on it, but he then turned around and ran as the ball bounced once. He managed to fire it back at the infield, but Butler had reached second. Bob Walk was at third and Bruce Benedict had scored. Claudell then promptly lined a single back up the middle for two RBIs. That was the end of the scoring for the day.

The next game, the Phillies had Steve Carlton pitching. Quite frankly, that was all the Phils needed. He allowed just two hits, no walks and struck out five. Preston Hanna allowed one run in five innings in a replacement start for Rick Mahler who bruised a calf in practice after his last start.

the Phillies took the next game 5-3, thanks to Dick Ruthven's excellent start, he shut out the Braves for seven innings, before they broke throught with three runs in the eighth. Ruthven pitched through that and Tug McGraw saved the game for the Phils.

In Shea, the Braves batted around in their way to victory in the first game. Dale Murphy smacked two home runs, one an opposite-field shot to right field in the third that easily cleared the fence, The other homer in the fifth was even better than the first one, getting into the stands five seats back in right center. The Braves were up 3-0 by then. Bob Horner had a bases-loaded single in the seventh to make it 5-0. Ellis Valentine made it 5-1 with a solo shot to right in the 8th. Then, the top of the ninth:

TOP OF THE NINTH
Biff Pocoroba pinch hit for Phil Niekro. <--->
Biff Pocoroba popped up to the third baseman in foul ground. <--->
Brett Butler singled to center. <--1>
Claudell Washington singled through the left side. <-21>
Dale Murphy reached first on a fielding error by the third baseman. <321>
Bob Horner struck out. <321>
Willie Stargell walked, scoring a run. <321>
Damaso Garcia singled to center field for two RBIs. <-21>
Rafael Ramirez singled back through the middle. <321>
Charlie Puleo came in to pitch for the Mets. <321>
Bruce Benedict singled into right field for two RBIs. <-21>
Biff Pocoroba grounded to the third baseman. <-21>
5 runs, 5 hits, 1 error, and 2 left on base.
In the middle of the ninth, Atlanta leads 10 to 1.

That ended it, basically. :)

In the second game, Atlanta went up 3-0 on Dale Murphy's run-scoring single and Bob Horner's two run shot. George Foster homered in the fourth to make it 3-1. Mookie Wilson had a sac fly in the bottom of the fifth to get the Mets closer, 3-2. In the top of the sixth, Dale Murphy reached on an error when John Stearns flubbed a dribbler that he tried picking up and firing in one motion. Willie Stargell then drew a walk on a full count. Bob Horner then came up. One of the home run leaders in this short season, he did cause the fans to pay attention. And he didn't disappoint, smacking a three-run shot. The Braves didn't lose the lead, but the Mets hung in there with Rusty Staub hitting two homers for three RBIs, to give the Mets their last runs. The Braves held on for a 6-5 win.

Rick Mahler returned from his injury to the rotation. He pitched quite well for seven innings. Steve Bedrosian came in for an inning and pitched a shutout frame. Mike Scott pitched a complete game. The difference? John Stearns. His solo shot off of Mahler proved the difference.

Right after the game, Bruce Benedict slipped on the dugout steps and scratched his shin a little. It was bad enough to keep him out for a few days, but for some reason, the organization decided to classify it as a "spiked calf." Hey, don't blame me.

(And any other news I forgot to mention :) )

April 11, Anderson, SC -

Light hitter Andres Thomas tore his Achilles tendon while running out a groundout and had to be helped off the field. It is unfortunate that he has to miss the rest of the season and won't heal until January, team doctors have said. Our hearts go out to him.

April 18

The Giants released Joe Morgan. Just four days after suffering a strained knee, San Francisco released the 38-year old second baseman. Word is when he retires, he wants to go into broadcasting, but from what I've heard he's not all that great. ;)

April 22-24 @ Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium.

April 22
Braves 4, Phillies 3
W - Steve Bedrosian (2-0)
L - Ron Reed (1-2)
HR - PHI - Mike Schmidt (7)
ATL - Brett Butler (1) :eek:

W - Pascual Perez (2-2)
L - Mike Krukow (2-2)
HR - Bob Horner (10), Dale Murphy (8)

The Braves had to broad a flight quickly after the Mets game ended, but they managed to rest before the evening game in Atlanta. In the first game, Mike Schmidt singled in a run off of Bob Walk in the first and in the top of the fourt, he drilled a leadoff homer that was just fair. Dick Davis was able to single in Garry Maddox after Maddox singled and stole second.

In the bottom of the inning, Matt Sinatro led off with a single, and as Dick Davis skidded to a stop after fielding the ball, he was surprised to see Sinatro still chugging along. He panicked and threw quickly, the ball bouncing once and high. Sinatro was able to reach second. Ken Smith pinch hit for Walk and Sinatro was able to reach third on Smith's grounout. As Brett Butler walked up to the people, most of the fans in the park were thinking single or double. After all, that's what Butler does. Imagine their surprise when Butler smacked a 2-0 pitch that cleared the left-field wall, tying the game at three. Butler hit a home run off of Steve Carlton!!

On to the bottom of the ninth. Ron Reed came on to pitch for the Phillies. Damaso Garcia led off with a single to right. Davis misjudged the ball, leaping and preventing the ball from getting over his head, but Garcia saw the leap and turned on the jets, getting to second. He was still there with Rufino Linares coming up to pinch hit with two outs. With a 1-2 count, Linares lined a ball that Pete Rose just missed at first. Garcia and Linares ran as hard as they could, Linares reaching second just after Garcia crossed the plate, the Braves had another last at-bat win.

Game two. Bottom of the fourth. No score. Matt Sinatro reached base when Dick Ruthven threw a grounder back to him away, it luckilly bounced back to the infield off the dugout railing. Phil Niekro popped up, but Brett Butler and Claudell Washington both singled. The bases were loaded for Dale Murphy.

WHAM! When the ball cleared the center-field fence, it was 4-0. The Phillies made it 4-1 when Niekro had his own error in the top fo the foruth. It became 4-3 when Pete Rose and Mike Schmidt had RBI doubles in the sixth. Damaso Garcia had an RBI groundout to first in the bottom of the inning and Garcia and Claudell Washington had RBI singles in the eigth and 7-3 is all she wrote.

The third game really was no contest. Pascual Perez was in control from the get-go, allowing just one run. Murphy and Horner had solo shots in the bottom of the fourth. Rafael Ramirez and Willie Stargell had run-scoring singles and pinch-hitter Biff Pocoroba had a sacrifice fly. Ozzie Virgil hit into a double play, scoring the only run for the Phillies.

Trades around the majors this season:

April 3
PHI gets: 1B Jose Barrios (69/75)
P Jeff Brantley (70/83)
SF gets: P Sparky Lyle (81)
C Bo Diaz (77)
SS Ken Dowell (63/75)

Analysis: In the short run, the trade favors San Francisco. Lyle is a good relief pitcher for this year and Bo Diaz needs a chance to shine. In the long run, Philadelphia wins because of Brantley's promise and talent. He'll be a wonderful relief pitcher someday.

Winner: Philadelphia

April 22
MIN gets: 1B Reggie Smith (81)
LF Ron Pruitt (76)
SFG gets: 1B Randy Johnson (70/82)

Analysis: As soon as Smith comes off the DL, the seven-time All-Star will be a nice compliment or backup first baseman for Kent Hrbek. Randy Johnson is also a very nice first baseman prospect. Since I favor prospects in the long run, I like what the Giants did, but Minnesota came out well in the short term. If Smith stays healthy and performs.

Winner: Push

The Braves played an unusual six-game series against the Dodgers. But it didn't really bug them to do so. Doing well in this series would bury their division rival. And they did so, winning five of six and gaining four games on their longtime division rivals. :)

In other news, Steve Renko (80) was released by the Angels in an inexplicable move, six days after his last start, a loss against the Tigers. Apparently, the Angels were dissatisfied with him and his injury. It seems to be an epidemic, these injury-related releases. ;) The Twins were in negotiations with him. Joe Morgan (79) is in talks with the Mariners. Veteran Joe Rudi (69) still hasn't found a team that will take him.

Before the game on May 1, the Braves announced that they had agreed on contract extensions with Dale Murphy and Bob Horner, the cornerstones of the franchise. Murphy signed for $5.55 million each for 7 years, Horner for $3 million for 7 years.

"I'm happy that I'm going to be an Atlanta Brave for so long, I really like it here in Atlanta, its' a wonderful city" Murphy said. And he meant it. Horner also agreed. "As far as I'm concerned, I'm a Brave. And that's the way it'll stay."

Trades:

April 25
SEA gets: 3B Hector Cruz (69)
P Mike Proly (75)
CHC gets: RF Ivan Calderon (61/85)

Analysis: The Cubs got away with murder here. Ivan Calderon is said by scouts to have a wealth of talent that may come out quite soon. And who did the Cubs have to give up in return? Two journeymen. And the only one who can probably contribute something meaningful is Proly.

Winner: Chicago.

April 29
MIN gets: P Karl Best (70/84)
SEA gets: 1B Reggie Smith (81)
2B Rob Wilfong (77)

Analysis: Remember what I said about the last trade involving Smith? Apparently, it was all bunk. In not really needing a backup for Kent Hrbek, the Twins traded Smith and Wilfong, who were both on the DL (admit it, you didn't see that coming ;) ) for prime pitching prospect Karl Best. At this point, I don't know if Smith is going to perform at the rate that he has been injured. Best is seen as being a good reliever in the majors, and there are short supply of them.

Winner: Minnesota.

HR - Dale Murphy (10)

Free Agents:
Renko, Morgan and Rudi still aren't signed. Left fielder Jay Johnstone (71) was released by the Cubs, but not during the time he was recovering from his dislocated shoulder, it was right after a re-hab stint! This is a problem. Jerry Koosman (77), the veteran starter, was also released by the White Sox. He was recovering from a broken collar bone! Madness.

Trade!

ATL gets: 1B Glenn Davis (60/89)
HOU gets: LF Terry Harper (73/76)
SS Andres Thomas (57/68)

Analysis: The Braves have secured a first baseman who could be their starter for a long time just in case Ken Smith doesn't pan out. Andres Thomas could still develop into a great shortstop; he and Davis are still quite young. Harper, well, I don't think he's going to get any better.

Winner: Push, for now.

It was Cincinnati up 2-0 in the bottom of the eighth. Jerry Royster pinch-hit and singled and reached second for an extra base. He stayed there with Brett Butler and Claudell Washington making outs. Up stepped the Murph. He drove a Seaver fastball behind the center field fence to tie the game and send Fulton County Stadium into a tizzy. :D In the bottom of the ninth, Damaso Garcia singled, and Rafael Ramirez singled, putting Garcia at third. Matt Sinatro, who had replaced Bruce Benedict in the eighth, came up to bat. The crowd gasped and murmured when he hit a fly ball to left. Garcia was a fast man, they were thinking, but was the fly deep enough? Eddie Milner caught the ball, Garcia ran from third. The ball came back in, but it bounced once. By then, Garcia had touched home plate. And a tough-luck loss for Seaver. And the crowd cheered. :)

Bob Walk is a monster. Allowed just a single and triple all day. Three strikeouts and one walk. NICE. :D Dale Murphy smacked a two-run shot to help Atlanta along to the win.

As I said before, Phil Niekro is the best 40-something pitcher in the game today. Five hits, one walk, six strikeouts. Murphy smacks another two-run homer to help the shutout along. :)

Charlie Leibrandt was a beast in this game, pitching 9 1/3 innings and allowing just two unearned runs, three singles and striking out six. The Braves pitchers held up the fort. Mahler allowing one run in six, and Donnie Moore allowing one run in three. The Braves scored their runs on the result of a sac fly by Brett Butler and a run-scoring single by Bruce Benedict. When Jim Kern came in after Leibrandt got one out in the 10th, it all backfired. Horner singled, Rafael Ramirez singled and then Albert Hall pinch-ran for Horner. Didnít do any good. Rufino Linares pinch-hit and smacked a single up the middle, sending the Braves players and fans into another frenzy.

Braves 4, Cubs 0

The second straight shutout for the ageless Niekro, six hits allowed, two walks and seven strikeouts, Murphy also hit a two-run homer to help Niekroís cause. Wow, what a surprise, eh? :D

(Because I didn't look at the headlines, I bring this to you now.)

April 30, 1982

CHICAGO - Cleveland Indian Ed Whitson took the mound against the Chicago White Sox up 1-0 thanks to a Bake McBride home run, not knowing what would transpire that day.

BOTTOM OF THE FIRST

Carlton Fisk was able to lean in and make it look like he was diving out of the way to get on base for this one. The crowd loved it, but then...

Steve Kemp grounded to first for a double play (3-6-1). <--->
0 runs, 0 hits, 0 errors, and 0 left on base.
At the end of the second, Chicago trails 1 to 0.

Rick Manning was driven in by Jack Perconte with a double. That was all that the Indians would score that day... that was all that Whitson needed.

BOTTOM OF THE THIRD
Jim Morrison popped up to short. <--->
Chris Nyman walked. <--1>
Jeff Schaefer flied out to left field. <--1>
Ron LeFlore grounded to short. <--1>

At the end of the eighth, Chicago trails 2 to 0.

By now, some of the fans in Cominskey Park were confused. Some rooted for Whitson to finish the no-hitter. Some rooted for anyone to get a hit, some further rooted for the White Sox to get enough hits to win.

BOTTOM OF THE NINTH
Jeff Schaefer flied out to left field. <--->
Ron LeFlore popped up behind home plate. <--->

Tony Bernazard strode to the plate, 0-3 that day. The crowd was standing up and into the game again, most wanting to see something done that rarely happens in baseball. 1-2 count. Whitson wound up, kicked and fired. Swing and a miss!

Tony Bernazard struck out. <--->

Ed Whitson was met at the mound with big hugs, handshakes and smiles, especially from Len Barker, who had the last no-hitter for the Indians, he even got a ride on everyone's shoulders off the field and the Cominskey crowd applauded for the feat. Whitson's no-hitter was the first since Nolan Ryan's fifth no-hitter on September 26, 1980 against the LA Dodgers in the Astrodome.

Braves 8, Dodgers 0
W - Bob Walk (9-2)
L - Bob Welch (3-2)
HR - Dale Murphy 2 (16)

Bob Walk (7) and Ken Dayley (2) combined for a three-hit shutout, all singles. And as custom, when the Braves pitch a shutout, Dale Murphy homers! He hit a bomb to left field off of Bob Welch and the boos rained down as the powder-blue clad slugger rounded the bases to put the Braves up 1-0. With the Braves up 5-0 in the top of the ninth and Murphy came up against Tom Niedenfuer with Brett Butler on second and Claudell Washington on first. With a 2-1 count, Niedenfuer tried a curveball. CRACK. Another homer into the left field seats, more boos, more Braves runs. :) And that's the way things ended.

W - Cecilio Guante (3-1)
L - Ken Dayley (1-2)
HR - ATL - Dale Murphy 2 (18), Claudell Washington (5)
PIT - Trench Davis (1), Bill Robinson (GS, 3)

Wow. What a way to lose. Gene Garber blows the save by giving up a home run to Trench Davis, making his major league debut in an emergency start! This is kid fresh from the rookie leagues! In the 12th, with Ken Dayley coming on to protect a three-run lead thanks to Claudell Washington and Dale Murphy homers, he gets the bases loaded on him with no one out. Bill Robinson steps up... and guess what happened. Yeah. THAT. Guess who he was pinch-hitting for. Trench Davis. What IRONY.

Pete: Well, after you've hit 472 home runs and driven in 1523 runs for a team, I guess they can't help but like you.

Skip: *laughs* True enough. Candelaria goes to the wind-up, the pitch. Swing, and a line drive, deep to right! Parker to the wall, it's gone! A three-run homer for Stargell and just like that, it's 3-0 Atlanta!

TOP OF THE THIRD

CRACK!

Skip: Linnned, base hit, right field. Murph has a single and and here comes Stargell again. More cheers for him. You know, it's still strange to see him in our uniform.

Pete: Just like it's unusual to see Chris in the Pirates uniform.

Skip: Mmmhmm. Candelaria to the stretch. Here's the pitch. Strike down the middle... Murph leads off first, good sized lead. The stretch, the pitch. Swing and a miss, strike two.

Pete: Willie had a pretty good swing with that curveball.

Skip: Sounds like a good sign. Candy sets and the pitch... swung and driven, down the left-field line deep, Lacy gets against the wall, that ball is in the seats, but is it fair?... the umpire is singaling home run, and we have a 5-1 lead!

TOP OF THE FOURTH
Bruce Benedict grounded to the shortstop. <--->
Pascual Perez struck out. <--->

Skip: And Brett trots to first after a six-pitch walk. He's really impressed me with his ability to take a walk. Up next is Claudell, he's 1 for 2 today. First pitch from Tunnell is a ball, 1-0. Washington waits... the pitch. Grounded... past Johnny Ray for a base hit! Butler stops at second. The Braves have another thing cooking.

Pete: Now Dale's up and he has done quite well latley, his 18 homers still lead the league. Tunnell winds up, throws. *crowd groans* And that is how you take one for the team. The slider broke the wrong way and Dale got hit right on the 3. Bases are loaded for Willie, and the Pittsburgh fans are cheering.

Skip: This is why baseball is such a great game. You can cheer for people without team boundaries. You have to wonder if they're wanting him to hit another home run.

Pete: I bet some are.

*CRACK!*

Pete: Swing and a drive, deep left field!! Lacy looks up! GRAND SLAM, Willie Stargell!! And the Braves are now up 9-3!! And would you believe it, this park is on its feet and cheering.

Pete: And here comes Stargell. What a day he's had.

*crowd cheering and on their feet*

Pete: 3-3 with three home runs and nine runs batted in.

Skip: I wouldn't be surprised in the least if Willie hits one here.

Pete: *laughs* Solomon pitches... and there's a long drive!! Deep left-center!! HE'S DONE IT! Willie Stargell has hit four home runs in a single game!

*crowd goes wild and the team celebrates at the plate, and lo and behold, Willie gets a curtain call, being a visiting player! He takes it, tipping his cap, a huge boyish grin on his face, the grin he is so famous for*

Skip: Now listen to this, folks

*crowd cheering like they've just won the World Series as Willie goes to the plate*

Skip: Pops has hit four home runs today and driven in 11. Wouldn't it be something if he hits a fifth?

Pete: It sure would. It has been a treat to watch him today.

Skip: Scurry winds and fires. *crowd groans as Willie swings and misses the fastball* Well, he's going for it. Strike one *crowd cheers* The pitch... *crowd groans again* Home run cut, but he fouled it off. Strike two. Scurry trying not to be the victim of history. Here's the pitch... Swinggggg and a miss! Willie strikes out... *crowd groans, but then cheers once more* but he may as well have hit another home run. What a classy bunch here at Three Rivers.

Pete: Quite frankly, I wish we could end the game right now on this good note, but we still have more to play as Bob shakes Willie's hand before going to the plate himself. What a day.

Rafael Ramirez unfortunately suffered a foot stress fracture on June 2, so he has to go on the 15-day DL. Here's to a speedy recovery for our young shortstop.

BIG trade:

BAL gets: P Mike Trujillo (62/77)
C Marc Sullivan (62/70)
3B Carney Lansford (80)

BOS gets: P John Flinn (72/75)
RF Ken Singleton (82)
C Joe Nolan (76)

Analysis: Essentially, this was a Ken Singleton for Carney Lansford trade. Joe Nolan may be starting over Rich Gedman (74/93), for reasons I can't really fathnom, but Trujillo and Sullivan aren't going to make an immediate impact. This trade is a push right now, but if Nolan performs, it's all Red Sox for this deal.

Winner: Leaning towards Boston.

Free agency: Once again, the kick them when they're injured strategy is invoked. Hal McRae (76) broke his collarbone and was released by the Kansas City Royals. Disgusting.

Trade: June 9

CLE gets: SS Frank Taveras (70)
C Tim Blackwell (76)

MON gets: P Tom Brennan (72)
1B Andre Thornton (73)

Analysis: Andre Thornton is the stickler here. He should help Montreal with his home run power. That's the deal breaker in this case.

Winner: Montreal

Free Agency: Luis Tiant, the veteran, was let go by the Angels over, you guessed it, an injury. The Braves are thinking of signing him as another starter to help them for the year, and he can do the job still, he's 10-1 with a 2.52 ERA and 60 strikeouts.

The afternoon of July 1's game against the Giants, the Braves announced that they have signed pitcher Luis Tiant for the rest of the season. The deal was announced as being worth $3.2 million. At the press conference, Tiant proudly put on the blue home cap of the Braves and he said he was glad to be given another chance to play in the major leagues. He also thanked the Braves for having confidence in him and he would do his best to hold up his end of the baragin and join Phil Niekro in encouraging the Young Guns to keep up their good work. :)

July 1-4 @ Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium

Before the game, Steve Bedrosian was officially named the closer of the Braves by Joe Torre because of Bedrock's exemplary work in the bullpen. Bedrosian said that he was ready and the Braves could count on him.

July 1
Braves 3, Giants 2
W - Larry McWilliams (5-0)
L - Mike Chris (5-10)
HR - Damaso Garcia (3), Claudell Washington (10)

Luis Tiant made his debut in the home whites of the Braves and gave the Atlanta fans a very nice performance. He pitched seven innings and gave up just five hits and struck out nine. The two runs he allowed were unearned and came up when Claudell Washington misjudged a ground ball and missed scooping it up. As it was, the Braves managed to tie the game and take the lead with a Damaso Garcia home run in the bottom of the fourth and Claudell Washington solo shot in the bottom of the eighth, so Tiant got a no-decision.

July 2
Braves 6, Giants 3
W - Tommy Boggs (6-2)
L - Dan Schatzeder (4-7)
S - Steve Bedrosian (1)
HR - SF - Kyle Bleakman (1)
ATL - Willie Stargell (16)

Good ol' Pops, just keeps chugging along. :)

July 3
Braves 2, Giants 0
W - Bob Walk (13-3)
L - Rich Gale (5-8)

Boy, these shutouts are just sweet, aren't they? :D

July 4
Braves 8, Giants 1
W - Rick Mahler (3-3)
L - Jim Barr (8-4)
HR - Chili Davis (3)

July 5-7 @ Riverfront Stadium, Cincinnati

July 5
Braves 5, Reds 0
W - Phil Niekro (12-3)
L - Charlie Leibrandt (6-12)
HR - Bob Horner (23)

The other best pitcher on the team ;) , Phil pitched a three-hit shutout with five strikeouts. Sweeeeeeeet. Bob Horner also slammed a two-run homerun :)

July 6
Braves 6, Reds 4
W - Luis Tiant (1-0)
L - Bob Shirley (1-1)
S - Steve Bedrosian (2)
HR - Bruce Benedict (2), Bob Horner (24)

Tiant didn't fare so well this game, he gave up four runs on five hits and one walk, but he struck out six. The Braves backed him up this game, the score 5-4 Atlanta when Tiant left the game. Bedrosian got another save. :)

July 7
Braves 3, Reds 2
W - Larry McWilliams (6-0)
L - Tom Seaver (9-7)
S - Steve Bedrosian (3)

Tom Seaver pitched his way through the game with little trouble like the future Hall of Famer he is, but the ninth inning proved fatal for him. Steve Bedrosian collected his third save in three chances as Braves closer. :D

FINAL ROUND (5 Outs)

PLAYER HOMERS
MIKE SCHMIDT (PHI) 4
Bob Horner (ATL) 2

WINNER: Mike Schmidt

Bob Horner hit some very impressive shots to the left-field upper deck and Willie Stargell managed himself to get ahold of enough pitches to get to the next round along with Mike Schmidt and Reggie Jackson!

In the second round, Stargell got ahold of two pitches and Horner continued to lead, getting four. His last blast was a towering shot that whacked off of the upper deck. Schmidt matched Horner's prowess with three homers, including another upper deck shot. In the final round, Horner ran out of gas, getting only two pitches out. Schmidt hit four home runs to obtain the title of Home Run King for 1982.

Congratulations, boys. We may not have won, but our power is to be feared! :D Mwahahaha.

The MVP of the game goes to Phil Garner of the Houston Astros. He hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh off of Don Aase to put the game further out of reach.

July 12-13 @ Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium

July 12
Astros 9, Braves 4
W - Nolan Ryan (10-6)
L - Tommy Boggs (6-3)
HR - HOU - Reggie Smith (9)
ATL - Bob Horner (25)

Reggie Smith was signed to a one-year contract by the Houston Astros on May 7, and he had done well for them, batting .289 with 9 homers and 48 RBIs after this game here. Mike LaCoss finished holding the Braves offense in check.

July 13
Braves 7, Astros 6
W - Larry McWilliams (7-0)
L - Dave Smith (2-6)
S - Steve Bedrosian (4)
HR - HOU - Ray Knight (4)
ATL - Willie Stargell (17), Bob Horner (26)

It was 6-3 Astros going into the bottom of the eighth. Don Sutton was pitching a good game. Then... this happens.

BOTTOM OF THE EIGHTH
Claudell Washington doubled down the left field line. <-2->
Dale Murphy walked. <-21>
Willie Stargell doubled down the right field line, scoring a run. <32->

4 runs, 3 hits, 0 errors, and 2 left on base.
At the end of the eighth, Atlanta leads 7 to 6.

Bedrock shut down the Astros in the bottom of the ninth for his fourth save.

July 14-17 @ Busch Stadium, St. Louis

July 14
Braves 4, Cardinals 1
W - Luis Tiant (2-0)
L - Andy Rincon (3-11)
S - Steve Bedrosian (5)
HR - Willie Stargell (18)

Luis Tiant says that he might have lost a step in these past few weeks, but he can still pitch. This game says so. He went eight innings and, despite giving up six hits and four walks, gave up just one run. He did strike out five. Bedrosian got his second save in a row. Willie Stargell also smacked a home run :D

July 15
Braves 4, Cardinals 1
W - Pascual Perez (10-4)
L - Dave LaPoint (8-9)
S - Steve Bedrosian (6)
HR - Dale Murphy (24)

Pascual Perez turned in an eight-inning gem, allowing just three hits and two walks all day. Dale Murphy had a two-run shot in the sixth inning.

July 16
Braves 4, Cardinals 3
W - Donnie Moore (1-0)
L - Steve Mura (2-3)
S - Steve Bedrosian (7)
HR - Claudell Washington (10)

A lot of lead-losing in this game. The Braves managed to forge ahead in the ninth on a Damaso Garcia single. Bedrosian continued his stellar work in the closer's role, converting his seventh save in seven chances.

July 17
Cardinals 2, Braves 1
W - Tippy Martinez (2-5)
L - Larry McWilliams (7-1)
HR - Bob Horner (27)

The Braves wasted a Phil Niekro start, a rare occurence. The game lasted allllll the way into the 11th inning, where sure-armed Larry McWilliams came in to pitch. Pinch-hitter Gene Roof walked, Ozzie Smith sacrificed him to second and Ken Oberkfell singled him in. Darn it all.

(Sometimes I forget about these important things, sorry :) )

Trades:

July 3
PHI get: 1B Willie Aikens (75)
SS U. L. Washington (79)
KC get: RF Dick Davis (71)
2B Manny Trillo (81)

Analysis: Could be a wash, but Dick Davis really isn't that good. He got his only homer against... you guessed it, Atlanta. Aikens has wonderful power and Washington is a very nice shortstop. Manny Trillo is a very superb fielder. Since Aikens is in a pinch-hitting role, the Royals win this one.

Winner: Kansas City

July 13
BAL gets: 2B Tom Herr (84)
STL get: SS Lenn Sakata (74)
P Tippy Martinez (78)
P Storm Davis (79/88)

Analysis: Boy, the Cardinals must have really liked Davis and Martinez in order to part with a fielding stud like Herr. Sure, he hasn't hit much, but his glove is dang well worth it. A promising future awaits for Davis.

Winner: Baltimore

July 19
ATL gets: P Jeff Brantley (71/84)
PHI get: 3B Biff Pocoroba (75)
P Preston Hanna (74)

Analysis: The Phillies gave up a good young prospect for a pinch-hitter and the odd man out in the Braves pitching staff? You do the math.

Winner: Atlanta.

July 19
SDP get: RF Gary Rajsich (67/69)
C Rick Sweet (70)
P Scott Holman (75/81)
NYM get: 1B Broderick Perkins (71)
C Steve Swisher (70)

Analysis: Oh, wow. The Padres got away with murder here. Perkins isn't that great and all Swisher can do is hit the 12-6 curve and throw out people, essentially.

Winner: San Diego

This was just bad luck. Forsch had his A game and Bruce Sutter... well, he's Bruce Sutter. Pascual allowed six singles and four walks, but the Cardinals scored with a Keith Hernandez signle, a stolen base and George Hendrick drove him in with another single.

KC get: LF Alan Bannister (73)
1B Mark Higgins (59/77)
CLE get: SS Buddy Biancalana (54/69)
P Mike Armstrong (74)
LF Tom Poquette (67)

Analysis: I hate to say it, but this seems like a push. No one here is particularly special.

Winner: Push

DET gets: P Terry Leach (77)
NYM get: C Bill Fahey (75)
1B Enos Cabell (73)
P Larry Rothschild (72)

Analysis: Two pitch-hitters, who could do so at anytime, and a spot reliever for a guy who isn't very good. Steal for the Mets

Winner: New York Mets

PIT gets: P John Franco (74/88)
CIN get: 1B Willie Montanez (73)
P Randy Niemann (73/74)
CF Marvell Wayne (58/73)
3B Ken Reitz (73)
P Dorn Taylor (67/75)

Analysis: ... I think it's pretty apparent who won here. And no, I'm not talking about the Reds. Franco has much more promise than what these pitchers and others can contriubute to the Reds.

Winner: Pittsburgh

Even though it appears that Boggs is doing bad (6-5), he really hasn't. He has just one bad game in his last 10, July 12th against Houston, where he allowed seven runs. Every other start in his last 10, he has allowed three runs or less.

When Atlanta was leading 7-0 after a Bob Horner two-run shot, Bruce Benedict signed to center, Damaso Garcia popped up in foul territory, Rafael Ramirez singled, and even Luis Tiant singled. This brought up Brett Butler. This guy, well, he's not a home run threat, having hit just four all year. We now go to Skip and Pete.

Skip: Charlie Lea hasn't had much luck this inning. Four hits, one walk, and only one out recorded.

Pete: Brett Butler steps up, hoping to add more runs on the Braves' tally. Wonder what he's going up there trying to do.

Skip: Lea from the stretch. Pitches. Ball one. I think he's probably going to hit a single, get two runs in. Try not to do too much. Ball two, downstairs.

Pete: Unless he gets a pitch to drive.

Skip: Yep. Braves looking to add runs here... the pitch, curve and swung! Deep left field! Raines goes back, he leaps... he can't get it! Grand slam, Brett Butler!! And the Braves lead it 11-0!

Sweeeeeet on the perfect game! If it isn't a Braves pitcher, at least it's one from the American League so you don't have to worry about Alexander in the regular season....

The Pittsburgh Pirates just squeaked by St. Louis to get into the NLCS for their seventh division title in their history. Now, they're looking to win their tenth pennant. Led by Dave Parker's and Jason Thompson's slugging prowess and incredible team speed (Omar Moreno leads the team with 58 steals and five other Pirates are in double digit steals), the Pirates offense was second in the NL in runs scored behind the Braves.

The Pirates' pitching staff, who are led by Rick Rhoden and John Candelaria and anchored by super closer Kent Tekulve (33-33 in save chances), is able to keep the Pirates in the game to allow them to score enough runs to win.

What can I say? On their way to a franchise-record 112 wins, the Braves almost had three players drive in 120 runs (Murphy and Stargell), Bob Horner just missing with 119 RBIs. The trio of Dale Murphy, Willie Stargell and Bob Horner combined for 113 home runs and 370 runs batted in. Kick-starting the offense was Brett Butler and Claudell Washington. Washington led the league in hits.

If the Braves' offense was bad to opponents, their pitching staff was the death knell to them. Cy Young candidate Phil Niekro led the league in wins and ERA. Young Gun Bob Walk contributed with 17 wins. But probably the most important acquistion was Luis Tiant. Signed as a free agent on July 1, Tiant won 10 games for the Braves, finishing with 21 wins with California and Atlanta. Steve Bedrosian took over closing duties from the inconsistent Gene Garber and finished with 18 saves with an 8-1 record. Larry McWilliams was 10-2 out of the bullpen.

Now the Braves have won their second division title and are looking to win their fourth pennant in their history.

Slugging. That's what the Detroit Tigers are all about when it comes to their offense. All nine starters hit double digits in home runs, five with more than twenty and one, Lance Parrish, with more than thirty. Also, every starter has at least 120 hits. Yikes.

The pitching staff is led by Jack Morris, Juan Berenguer and Dan Petry (Wow, one guy who would victimize the Braves in 1991, and two who would pitch for them in 1991! ;) ) The bullpen is anchored by the reliable Elias Sosa (31 saves.)

Despite this being only their second divsion title, the Tigers are going for their ninth American League pennant.

The Angels have won their second division title ever. The offense is led by future Hall of Famer Rod Carew and Doug DeCinces and Fred Lynn, with 30+ homers each. There isn't much speed on the team, with Carew being the only player with more than 20 stolen bases. We'll see how they do against the Tigers.

Mike Witt leads the pitching staff and the Angels have pretty much relied on him for most of the excellence. Although young Bryan Harvey is another reliable closer and Don Aase is the bullpen ace.

Wow, this was a massacre. The Angels batters did a masterful job teeing off of Jack Morris and company and Mike Witt held the vaunted Tiger offense to just four singles and a double. Doug DeCinces and Daryl Scoiners had home runs for the Angels.

Both teams put their aces out there, and quite frankly, neither of them even went to the fifth. The Pirates lit up Phil Niekro for a five spot in the first inning for a 5-1 lead, but the Braves came roaring back with five spot of their own in the fourth. The 6-5 score held up until the bottom of the ninth, where Ken Dayley was going for the 1 1/3 inning save. Jason Thompson walked, was bunted to second and Omar Moreno ran for him. Moreno then stole third and Rick Manning bunted for a base hit, scoring a run. Then, the tenth. Super closer Kent Tekulve came in, but this wasn't a save situation. And it showed. With two out, Bob Horner singled, Rafael Ramirez doubled and Bruce Benedict singled. Boom. :D Dayley held the Pirates off the borad in the bottom of the inning for the win, leaving men on first and third.

Once again, the Angels pitching was stellar, Stan Banshen allowing just five singles and four walks all day, striking out six. Amazing that the Tigers didn't string at least one run out of that. Ken Forsch gave up a hit and then closed off the game. Fred Lynn drove in the lead run by himself. And that was all that was needed. California is now one win away from their first pennant in their history.

This was a wild game, to say the least. The Pirates led 4-3 after the fifth inning. In the top of the eighth, Cecilo Guante came in to pitch for the Pirates. Historically, the Braves have feasted on this guy and... Bob Horner greeted him with a solo shot. The crowd booed as Horner rounded the bases. Six more innings passed. No more score. Then, the fifteenth.

The pitch. Currrrve, strike two! *big cheer* The pittttch, swung, fly ball, left field, Butler's under it, one out! *BIG CHEER, clapping*

Pete: Now, Dale Berra comes up, pinch hitting for Guante. First pitch is a strike! *BIG CHEER* Bedrosian works quickly, the pitch... swing and a miss! Steve comes set again, and the pitch, SWING and Berra strikes out!! *BIG CHEER*

Skip: Just one more out... just one more out and Atlanta will be the happiest place on Earth. *CHEERING* Lee Lacy coming up, he's 1-4 today, scored a run.

9. Joe Ferguson, C


It doesn't help that the Angels' Bob Boone and Doug DeCinces are out for the entire World Series, it'll be hard for Sexton to replace DeCinces. Ferguson will probably be able to replace Boone without problems.

Position by position:



Catcher:
Bruce Benedict: .261, 3 HR, 43 RBI, 50% CS
Joe Ferguson: .298, 6 HR, 12 RBI

Analysis: Ferguson has done well filling in for Boone, but can he keep it up? Benedict has been consistent for the entire season, at least in that. I'll give him the advantage because Ferguson is a fill-in, although he has the power numbers.

Adv: ATLANTA

First Baseman:
Willie Stargell: .285, 31 HR, 122 RBI
Rod Carew: .314, 6 HR, 68 RBI
Daryl Scoiners: .204, 3 HR, 18 RBI

Analysis; Let's face it, Stargell has lost a step. He's still the cleanup hitter so if people miss pitching to him, that puts a runner on for Bob Horner. But Rod Carew is a beast still. Enough so that when Scoiners starts, it still doesn't offset the advantage.

Adv: CALIFORNIA

Second Baseman:
Damaso Garcia: .221, 5 HR, 34 RBI
Bobby Grich: .228, 17 HR, 78 RBI

Analysis: Not even the nice fielding that Garcia has can offset this power difference.

Adv: CALIFORNIA

Third Baseman:
Bob Horner: .301, 45 HR, 119 RBI
Randy Johnson: .306, 1 HR, 7 RBI
Jimmy Sexton: .000, 0 HR, 0 RBI

Analysis: Boy, having Doug DeCinces out for the Series REALLY hurts. o.o

Adv: ATLANTA

Shortstop:
Rafael Ramirez: .262, 5 HR, 58 RBI
Rick Burleson: .244, 3 HR, 31 RBI

Analysis: Ramirez is a better hitter, that's for sure. He's barely a worse fielder than Burleson, but I'll take the hitting.

Adv: ATLANTA

Left Fielder:
Brett Butler: .297, 6 HR, 60 RBI, 48 SB
Brian Downing: .246, 23 HR, 86 RBI

Analysis: Two different kinds of players. I'd have to push this one.

Adv: PUSH

Center Fielder:
Dale Murphy: .284, 37 HR, 129 RBI
Fred Lynn: .274, 34 HR, 104 RBI

Analysis: Dale hits a little more, that's for sure, and takes more advantage of the set table for him, but he and Lynn are identical.

Adv: PUSH

Right Fielder:
Claudell Washington: .296, 17 HR, 83 RBI
Jose Moreno: .273, 4 HR, 13 RBI

Analysis: Rigggggghhhhttttt ;)

Adv: ATLANTA

Designated Hitter:
Bob Horner
Rod Carew

Adv: ATLANTA

Starters:
Phil Niekro - 21-4, 1.92
Pascual Perez - 14-10, 3.47
Luis Tiant - 11-3, 2.53
Tommy Boggs - 10-7, 3.38

Mike Witt - 19-9, 2.98
Stan Banshen - 2-2, 4.32
Bruce Kison - 13-11, 3.72
Jerry Koosman - 3-5, 3.88

Analysis: Why did the Angels give up on Tiant? I'll never know. He and Niekro are the biggest talents here. In a short series like this, they could take command. But so could Mike Witt and Stan Banshen. I'll still go with the Braves on this one.

Adv: ATLANTA

Bullpen:
Steve Bedrosian - 8-1, 1.51, 18 SV
Gene Garber - 7-7, 4.22, 13 SV
Ken Dayley - 5-5, 4.36, 3 SV
Larry McWilliams - 10-2, 1.25, 6 SV
Rick Mahler - 3-4, 3.69, 2 SV
Donnie Moore - 4-1, 1.28, 2 SV
Bob Walk - 17-5, 2.70, 0 SV

Bryan Harvey - 2-6, 3.37, 33 SV
Luis Sanchez - 4-3, 4.21, 3 SV
Don Aase - 10-2, 1.81, 6 SV
Ken Forsch - 3-3, 2.94, 3 SV
Andy Hassler - 2-3, 3.27, 1 SV
Mickey Mahler - 1-0, 8.16, 0 SV
Angel Moreno - 7-7, 4.17

Analysis: The bullpens are remarkably similar, but Atlanta gets the advantage. Why? Better ERA for the closer, and the fact that they can afford to have Bob Walk as a mop-up man.

Adv: ATLANTA

SV: K. Dayley


Game One wasn't exactly what I expected it to be, nor the California Angels fans. We expected Mike Witt to engage Phil Niekro in a pitcher's duel. Instead, all we got was Witt lifted in the second inning after giving up two runs in the first and four in the second, all on seven hits and a walk. The scary thing is that Angel Moreno came in and pitched 5 1/3 innings of scoreless ball, keeping the Angels in the game single-handedly. The Angels socred once in the second and twice in the sixth off of Niekro to cut the Braves' lead in half. The Braves tacked on another run in the ninth off of Luis Sanchez and Ken Dayley got the two-inning save.

Game 2's projected starters are Pascual Perez and Stan Banshen.

The Braves went up 2-0 on a rare Rafael Ramirez home run to left-center in the second. The Angels replied with Daryl Scoiners' solo shot in the bottom of the inning. No more score after that until the bottom of the fourth. Daryl Scoiners came up again and doubled. Bobby Grich them singled him home to tie the game, much to the delight of the crowd. They were even more delighted when their boys teed off on Perez in the bottom of the eighth, scoring three. Bryan Harvey shut down the Braves in the top of the ninth, striking out two.

With the home crowd behind them, the Braves were inspired to bat and pitch at their best and it showed. Claudell Washington got the scoring started with a home run to left off of Bruce Kison, making it 1-0. In the fifth, Brett Butler singled and stole second, but it looked like he was going to be stranded when Washington and Murphy made out. Then Pops singled with a chopper over Carew's head, scoring Butler.

In the sixth, the Braves loaded the bses with two out and Washington hit a bouncer to Jimmy Sexton. He misjudged it and it bounced off of his glove, all the runners safe and a run scoring. The seventh was the big inning, the Braves scoring three.

Luis Tiant was coasting along until California scored four runs in the inning, Gene Garber finishing the inning with a strikeout. With the cheering crowd behind him, Garber got the Angles one-two-three to seal the deal.

The Angels fans wanted the pitching duel, the Braves fans got it instead. Phil Niekro and Mike Witt locked horns for eight innings. The Angels struck first, scoring two in the first and kept the lead until the sixth. Dale Murphy homered with one out and Butler on first, tying the game and sending the home crowd dressed in white and blue into a frenzy and turning Chief Noc-A-Homa into a dancing fool.

In the bottom of the eighth, Brett Butler singled with one out and Claudell Washington walked. Murphy struck out this time, but Willie Stargell singled on a 2-1 pitch and Butler scored easily. The crowd exploded.

The crowd continued to cheer and clap as Steve Bedrosian came in in relief of Phil Niekro. They cheered more when Bobby Grich popped up. They quieted briefly when Joe Ferguson singled, but then cheered some more when Bedrosian pitched to Jose Moreno. They roared when he struck him out and continued to roar. The roars quieted to murrmurs when Rick Burleson singled, but Washington got it back in fast. The roars started again when Bedrosian pitched to pinch-hitter Don Baylor.

One huge roar escaped from the stadium. Baylor had struck out! Whoopee!

C Bruce Benedict, Arbitration

Asks for: $2,650,000
Braves offer: $2,500,000

This is a more sensible amount for a catcher who doesn't hit much. He's a great defender though and has a great eye for hitting, maybe we can work out a long-term contract.

Braves sign Benedict to a one-year $2,500,000 contract.

2B Damaso Garcia, Arbitration

Asks for: $2,800,000

I can understand about giving Benedict this kind of contract, but Garcia, who can't hit the broad side of a barn? Noooooo, thank you.

Braves release Garcia.

P Phil Niekro, Long-Term

Asks for: $16,500,000 / 2 yr.

... why, why, why is he asking so much? He's 43 years old and going to retire soon. Who knows when he'll tire? I really wish he could retire in a Braves uniform, but at this money? I don't think so.

Braves release Niekro.

P Rick Mahler, Arbitration

Asks for: $1,450,000
Braves offer: $1,400,000

It's a blessing that he's asking for so little money. We'll work on the long-term contract later, he'll most certainly fill in a vacany in the rotation for a long time.

Braves sign Mahler to a one-year $1,400,000 contract.

P Luis Tiant, Long-Term

Asks for: $9,550,000 / 2 yr.

See Phil Niekro's comment. I wish I could sign Tiant too. He and Phil did so much for the Braves to help them win the World Series. But they're just asking for so much money.

Braves release Tiant.

P Larry McWilliams, Arbitration

Asks for: $8,150,000

Not only no, but **** no. We'll see what he asks for in a long-term contract in free agency.

Braves release McWilliams

P Tommy Boggs, Long-Term

Asks for: $3,350,000 / 5 yr.

Having just released Niekro and Tiant, we need to keep a couple of starters at least. Boggs could definitely be the fifth starter for Atlanta, and is a cheaper alternative than signing someone fresh off of the free agent market.

Braves sign Boggs to a $3,250,000 five-year. contract.

P Bob Walk, Arbitration

Asks for: $6,550,000

Walk is too good to ignore in this case. We'll get him signed to a long-term deal. This can't be a flash in the pan.

Braves sign Walk to a $6,500,000 one-year contract.

P Donnie Moore, Long-Term

Asks for: $1,450,000 / 5 yr.

What a deal. What. A. Deal.

Braves sign Moore to a $1,400,000 five-year contract

06-23-2006, 03:44 AM
P Bob Walk, Extension

Asks for: $5,750,000 / 2 yr.

Walk and his family really love Atlanta and want to stay, and Bob is willing to take less money to stay with the Braves. Well, we gave him what he wanted. :)

Braves sign Walk to a $4,900,000 five-year contract.

P Rick Mahler, Extension

Asks for: $1,600,000 / 2 yr.

Mahler really loves it in Atlanta as well and wants to stay. So, he's staying!! :D

Braves sign Mahler to a five-year $1,400,000 contract.

Rumor has it that former Toronto Blue Jay hurler Dave Stieb wants to sign with Atlanta. With the need of another talented starting pitcher after the departure of Phil Niekro and the movement of Rick Mahler back into the Braves rotation, we sat down with Stieb and his agent, then haggled for a little while.

And...

We left with a handshake and a new member of the Atlanta Braves.

Braves sign Stieb to a five-year $5,550,000 contract.

Boy, this draft is thin. Sure, there are those guys Bret Saberhagen and Deight Gooden, but they aren't so hot. Oh, and there are some guys named Barry Bonds and Jose Canseco. Supposed to be really good, but I don't think they're so good. I like Keith Lockhart the best. :D

... and the strange move by the Baltimore Orioles of signing George Brett and Mike Schmidt...

The Braves wanted to fill in their second base slot with an experienced player. Luckilly, Rance Mulliniks was available. And so was Damaso Garcia. But with Mulliniks being a better hitter than Garcia, we decided to talk to him. And we struck a deal. :)

Braves sign Mulliniks to a four-year $3,300,000 contract.

The Braves made a hard decision after this game and anonuced it the next day: the heart of their World Championship team, Willie Stargell, was traded to the Cubs along with minor league pitcher Cliff Speck for prospect Jim Hunter. Stargell had told the Braves brass they were free to trade him if they wanted. So they did.

On May 10, Willie Stargell was given his unconditional release by the Chicago Cubs and he subsequently retired. Willie won three World Series: two with Pittsburgh (1971, 1979) and one with Atlanta (1982). He was an All-Star eight times and won one MVP award (1979), and an NLCS and World Series MVP (1979). He'll surely make the Hall of Fame someday.

The Cardinals were cruising along, leading 3-0 going into the eighth. Then this:


BOTTOM OF THE EIGHTH
Rance Mulliniks grounded to the shortstop. <--->
Randy Johnson singled to right. <--1>
Rafael Ramirez singled back through the middle. <-21>
Bruce Benedict singled into right field. <321>
Albert Hall pinch hit for Carlos Diaz. <321>
Albert Hall singled to right field for two RBIs. <3-1>
Brett Butler laid down a sacrifice bunt to third - a run scored. <-2->
Tippy Martinez came in to pitch for the Cardinals. <-2->
Claudell Washington struck out. <-2->
3 runs, 4 hits, 0 errors, and 1 left on base.
At the end of the eighth, the game is tied at 3.

That hurts. But this hurts even more.


BOTTOM OF THE ELEVENTH
Bruce Sutter came in to pitch for the Cardinals. <--->
Dale Murphy singled into right field. <--1>
Bob Horner singled through the right side. <-21>
Rance Mulliniks singled over the first baseman, scoring a run. <3-1>

P Pascual Perez, Extension

It has been rumored that Perez doesn't like Atlanta at all, but the way that he plays indicates that it doesn't really bother him. Therefore, the Braves felt like they wanted to keep him at a cheap price before he asks too much and gets away. So both sides struck a deal.

Braves sign Perez to a four-year, $4,850,000 extension

This game wasn't even close. It was kind of pathetic, actually. Eddie Murray hit a two-run homer in the second to put the AL up 3-0 and by the seventh, the AL was up 7-2 and Jeff Burroughs, the Oakland outfielder who was one of the bench players, hit a three-run homer to just put the cherry on the cake. That got him the All-Star Game MVP.

Braves get: RF Jeff Burroughs
A's get: RF Claudell Washington

Analysis: Washington's contract was about to expire and the Braves felt like they needed some power out of the right fielder spot. The alternative was to trade for a prospect and install Brad Komminsk (66/68) into right field. No. Burroghs, the All-Star Game MVP, gives the Braves some more extra power out of right field and some more cap room. Not to mention it gives him a second tour of duty with the team. Money-wise, they made the best move. Talent-wise? A push. So...

Winner: Atlanta.

Onward for the stretch run!!

The Braves learned during the game that they had clinched a tie for the NL West when the Padres lost to the Cubs. Handshakes went all around in the dugout, but they wanted to win. Albert Hall and Rance Mulliniks drove in three runs together in the top of the 10th, and Steve Bedrosian was a lock to close. Or was he? A couple of singles, a walk and some sac bunts scored two runs. Rick Mahler came in and closed out the game with a walk and a groundout and the Giants faithful rained boos as the Braves yelled, hugged and celebrated their first consectutive trips to the playoffs in 25 years. :)

The Braves shattered their franchise-record for victories and also set a brand-new major league record for victories with 124. Bob Horner was the meat of the offense, driving in 131 runs with the help of 46 homers, both leading the league. Reigining NL MVP Dale Murphy supported Horner with 37 homers and 129 RBIs with 109 runs scored.

The beneficiaries and helpers of the offense were the trio of Dave Stieb, Pascual Perez and Bob Walk. Stieb led the league with 24 wins. Perez had 23 and Walk had 20 wins. The Orioles are the only other team with three 20-game winners, which means that is pretty impressive. ;) Steve Bedrosian led the league with 38 saves and Ken Dayley collected 11 wins.

Most of the national press said that the Braves were going to sweep this series and sweep it with flair. Well, let's see if they're right.

The score was tied 0-0 in the top of the fourth, and the Braves had the bases loaded with none out. But Rance Mulliniks grounded into a double play, first to home to first. The Cards looked like they had killed the rally. But Rafael Ramirez killed them with a double down the left-field line, which fooled third baseman Kelly Paris, to score two, which rolled nicely on the Astroturf.

The top of the sixth was also good for the powder blue-clad Braves. With two out, Mulliniks singled and Ramirez chopped a ball that bounced over Paris's head to score Mulliniks. Bruce Benedict then singled to right, scoring the speedy Ramirez easily.

Dave Stieb pitched a masterful game for eight innings, allowing just two singles, a double and four walks, striking out seven. Steve Bedrosian came in to shut down the Cards, and he did.

This was never even close. After two and a half innings, the Orioles were up 7-0, thanks to a Cal Ripken, Jr., double and Eddie Murray two-run homer in the first, and two-run homers by Kirk Gibson and Mike Schmidt in the third. This disheartened the Angels fans pretty quickly, but Fred Lynn gave them something to cheer about with a two-run homer of his own to make it 7-2 in the Angels half of the third. Ripken had another RBI doubel in the fifth and Kirk Gibson completed the scoring with a solo shot to lead off the ninth.

Dennis Leonard went eight for the Orioles, with four hits, five walks and six strikeouts, and two runs allowed on the Lynn homer. Rich Gale finished the game with a minimum batter inning, getting a double play to end it.

Dan Petry was absolutely ineffective for the Angels, lasting just 2 2/3 innings, giving up 5 runs. Stan Banshen fared no better, giving up three runs in 2 1/3 innings. Ken Forsch pitched three innings of shutout ball and gave up the Gibson homer in the ninth. Andy Hassler shut down the Orioles in the ninth, too little, too late.

The Cardinals jumped out to a 5-0 lead after two innings, much to the delight of the home crowd. It was helped along with a first-inning two-run homer by Andre Dawson. The Braves had solo shots from Jeff Burroughs in the fourth, and Bob Horner in the sixth. Burroughs also hit a two-run homer to close the lead to 5-4, but Larry McWilliams, the former Brave, shut the Braves down the rest of the way.

Series tied 1-1

GASP!! The Cardinals won!! Riding three RBI singles, and a two-run homer by Andre Dawson, the Cardinals got to Bob Walk for three through six innings and Dawson hit the homer off of Jeff Dedmon in the 7th. The Braves got their only run in the ninth with a Rance Mulliniks single.

The Braves now need two wins in the worst way.

St. Louis Cardinals lead 2 games to 1

Admit it, you knew this was going to happen. The Angels took the lead with a Bobby Grich solo homer, and then the Orioles squashed any hope the Angels had left. The Orioles and their fans had their wish come true when Eddie Murray caught the relay throw from Cal Ripken to complete the double play!

This is the first of two do-or-die games for the Braves. The Atlanta Journal said that these next two games would show what the Braves were truly made of, since they haven't faced any real adversity all season.

Dave Stieb was up to the task, shutting out the Cardinals through four innings and Joaquin Andujar was just as determined to get the Cardinals to the World Series for the first time since 1968, shutting out the Braves through three. But in the bottom of the fourth, the Braves struck. With one out, Dale Murphy walked and stole second. Bob Horner then walked. Jeff Burroughs then doubled, scoring Murphy, and Horner scored on a Mulliniks ground out. Randy Johnson's RBI double made it 3-0 in the fifth. In the sixth, the Braves completed the scoring with two out in the sixth, Rance Mulliniks singled, Rafael Ramirez singled to right, advancing Mulliniks to third, and Bruce Benedict singled in a run. Dave Stieb allowed just a single and a double the rest of the way. When Keith Hernandez grounded out to Ramirez and the ball settled in Horner's glove, the Braves faithful erupted in cheers. Dave Stieb had recused them from disaster with a five-hit shutout. One game would decide who would be going to the World Series.

Series tied 2-2

Here we are. Do or die. The Cardinals thought they had the game in the bag, because Pascual Perez was hurt. Rick Behenna, making just the third start of his young career, was named to start in his place. A rookie going to win the Braves the pennant? HA!! Eric Rassmussen, 8-year veteran, was going for the Cardinals. It was in the bag!

Or not.

Behenna pitched the game of his life. Through six innings, he allowed just two hits, one double coming in the first inning. Eric Rassmussen allowed just five hits and two walks, but no runs.

In the seventh, the Cards loaded the bases with two out. With Rassmussen coming up, Whitey Herzog opted to remove him for Gene Tencae, smelling blood. Tenace walked on a borderline pitch, but the Cardinals had taken the lead.

Could the Braves recover?

Jeff Lathi was pitching. He had already pitched an inning. But the Braves pushed across a run, coming on a Jeff Burroughs fly ball to center. Huge cheers erupted from the white and blue clad fans as Johnson touched home plate and got high fives from the rest of the team. Rick Behenna had left the eighth inning to a standing oviation. Carlos Diaz came in to pitch the ninth and did his job, holding the Cards scoreless. But the Braves couldn't push across the winning run, getting no one on base. Into extra innings the game goes.

The tenth rolled by uneventfully, despite the fans cheering their heads off in the bottom of the inning. The evelenth... well...



TOP OF THE ELEVENTH
Keith Hernandez walked. <--1>
Darrell Porter laid down a sacrifice bunt to first. <-2->
Curt Ford hit an infield single to third. <3-1>
The Braves brought the infield in.
Lenn Sakata laid down a sacrifice bunt to third - a run scored. <-2->
Dane Iorg pinch hit for Doug Sisk. <-2->
Dane Iorg was intentionally walked. <-21>
Bill Lyons singled up the middle, scoring a run. <-21>
Jeff Dedmon came in to pitch for the Braves. <-21>
Gene Roof grounded to first. <-21>
2 runs, 2 hits, 0 errors, and 2 left on base.
In the middle of the eleventh, St. Louis leads 3 to 1.

Bruce Sutter was coming in to pitch. No one felt like cheering, but they did. The Cardinals looked like they were going to pull this one out. Paul Range led off the inning with a double. Benedict's grounder sent Runge to third. Jeff Dedmon actually laid down a successful sacrifce bunt, scoring Runge. But the Braves were still down 3-2. All hopes were on Brett Butler. The crowd cheered as he singled to left, just getting the ball past the third baseman Paris. Butler turned on his jets and reached second. Randy Johnson was intentionally walked and Dale Murphy came up to the plate. With the cheering crowd behind him, he waited for the right pitch from the bearded Sutter. On a 2-2 pitch, Dale saw a fastball and smacked it into center field, Butler racing home and the fans celebrating the tie.

And it stayed a tie for a while more.

Now to the thirteenth...

Steve Mura was in his second inning of pitching. Brett Butler led off by lofting a soft fly ball into right field. But Curt Ford seemed to cringe and the ball landed in front of him! He looked directly into a stadium light! Butler hustled his way to second as he saw the ball bounce high in the air. With the crowd at a defeaning pitch, Randy Johnson bunted towards first, sending Butler to third. Dale Murphy, the hero who tied the game back in the eleventh, and one of the heroes all season, stepped up. The Cardinals brought the infield in, just in case Joe Torre would try to call a squeeze bunt. Mura worked the count full to Murphy. Then a fastball. Murphy swung. The ball shot past a surprised and diving Keith Hernandez and he pounded his fists into the ground. Murphy raised his arms, the bat flying off behind him as he ran to first base and after he touched it, he hugged Benedict, Johnson and Runge, who ahd ran to him in sheer joy. The fans cheered and Chief Noc-A-Homa danced as the entire Braves team celebrated on the pitchers mound!!

Here we are once again, folks, the pinnacle of the baseball world. The Atlanta Braves pulled together to win their last two games against the St. Louis Cardinals to get into the World Series for a second year in a row. The Orioles absolutely destroyed the Angels.

Now for the head to head comparisons

C: ATL: Bruce Benedict: (.280, 1 HR, 39 RBI)
BAL: John Stefero (.288, 1 HR, 53 RBI)

The slight advantage goes to Benedict because he is a better defensive catcher, and that is important too.

Adv: ATLANTA

1B: ATL: Bob Horner (.269, 49 HR, 131 RBI)
BAL: Eddie Murray (.330, 41 HR, 154 RBI)

Yikes.

Adv: BALTIMORE

2B: ATL: Rance Mulliniks (.262, 11 HR, 69 RBI)
BAL: Tommy Herr (.320, 2 HR, 59 RBI)

Herr is a leadoff hitter, and is a much better hitter and defender (9 errors to 14), but Mulliniks has more power. But not like that offsets the advantage Herr has.

Adv: BALTIMORE

3B: ATL: Randy Johnson (.322, 7 HR, 70 RBI)
BAL: George Brett (.310, 19 HR, 103 RBI)

I think we all know who the winner is here.

Adv: BALTIMORE

SS: ATL: Rafael Ramirez (.242, 1 HR, 44 RBI)
BAL: Cal Ripken, Jr. (.299, 30 HR, 133 RBI)

… yeah.

Adv: BALTIMORE

LF: ATL: Brett Butler (.294, 7 HR, 64 RBI)
BAL: Mike Young (.236, 12 HR, 57 RBI)

Easy call here. Brett is also a leadoff hitter.

Adv: ATLANTA

CF: ATL: Dale Murphy (.268, 37 HR, 129 RBI)
BAL: Gorman Thomas (.274, 12 HR, 40 RBI)

Another easy call.

Adv: ATLANTA

RF: ATL: Jeff Burroughs (.294, 12 HR, 31 RBI; .284, 33 HR, 106 RBI overall)
BAL: Kirk Gibson (.306, 35 HR, 139 RBI)

Again, no contest.

Adv: BALTIMORE

I just got to the last page and have to say very nice all around. And you have to tell me where you got those old school logos I looked all over for them before just doing a 2004 dynasty since those were easier to find. But anyway got Braves looking forward to see how the fall classic works out for you.

Rotations:

ATL: Dave Stieb
Pascual Perez
Bob Walk
Dave Stieb
Tommy Boggs

BAL: Dennis Leonard
Mike Boddicker
Scott McGregor
Dennis Leonard
Jim Palmer

The rotations seem to be on equal footing, despite Baltimore's higher ERAs.

Adv: PUSH

Bullpen:

ATL: Closer: Steve Bedrosian
Setup: Jeff Dedmon
Short: Carlos Diaz
Short: Rick Mahler
Middle: Ken Dayley
Long: Joe Cowley
Mopup: Rick Behenna

BAL:Closer: Tim Stoddard
Setup: Don Welchel
Short: Bill Swaggerty
Short: Rich Gale
Middle: Sammy Stewart
Long: Nate Snell
Mopup: Paul Mosaku

Can I say the bullpens are even? I guess so, except Bedrosian is more lights-out. But I think that it's still a push.

Adv: Push

Here we go. Can the Braves pull out the victory and become the first back-to-back series winners of the World Series since the 1977-78 Yankees?

Could the Braves overcome the awesome might of the Orioles offense? Could they tee off on the Orioles themselves?

Well, they did tee off, but the Orioles teed off on the Braves more. Bob Walk started off the game and lasted just 3 1/3 innings. Dennis Leonard lasted just 1 2/3 innings for the Orioles. The Braves had a 7-6 lead after two innings, with help of a solo shot from Randy Johnson and a three-run homer by Jeff Burroughs, but by the end of 4 1/2, the Orioles had a 12-7 lead. The Braves scored 3 to make it 12-10 in the fifth. At the end of the sixth, the madness was ultimately over, the Braves making the score 19-14. Boy, the Atlanta journalists aren't going to reflect well on this one.

All the Braves fans and the Atlanta papers were hoping for was that the Braves would keep up on the offense and step up on the pitching. It didn't appear that way when the Orioles launched three runs off of Dave Stieb, on run-scoring hits by Mike Young and Al Bumbry.

In the bottom of the fifth, Brett Butler singled, then turned on the jets and reached second base. After Randy Johnson lined out to third, Butler stole third. Murphy unfortunately struck out. Bob Horner dribbled a ball to second. Tom Herr scooped it up and fired to first. Eddie Murray had to lean off the bag and Horner reached first, letting Butler score. Jeff Burroughs singled and Rance Mulliniks walked. The Orioles thought they were sitting pretty when Rafael Ramirez stepped up to the plate. He is a light hitter. On a 2-0 count, he used his light hitting. He used every single bit of it. This light hitting made the ball fly over the center field fence! The stadium was an open-air asylum and so were the Braves at the plate, who were high-fiving and hugging Ramirez, slapping him on the helmet and back and everything! The Braves took the lead 5-3!!

In the top of the 8th, Carlos Diaz came in with the score 5-4 Braves. Kirk Gibson singled to left to start the inning. Then Mike Young used every bit of his hitting to to line a honer around the foul pole in right, sending a hush throughout the stadium. Young got a high five from Gibson and high fives and hugs in the dugout.

The score was the same in the bottom of the 9th where, to uproars of the crowd, Mulliniks came to the plate. Could he start a comeback? Not with a pop up to short. Ramirez grounded out to Ripken and Benedict grounded out to Herr to end the game. The Braves are in an 0-2 hole going to Baltimore. Uh-oh. :eek:

http://img107.imageshack.us/img107/8135/braves20hg.gif vs. http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/4181/baltimoreorioles67927ud.gif, Memorial Stadium.

When Joe Torre got to Baltimore for Game 3, he announced that rookie Ken Smith would take the place of Bob Horner, who would be the DH for the games in Baltimore. The city of Atlanta was worried. The most skeptical among them lamented that the Braves didn't face adversity the entire regular season and that caused this problem. Not even the comeback in the NLCS convinced them. Hopefully, Game 3 would change their minds.

The second inning helped that a little bit. The Braves scored four thanks to a single, an error by John Stefero and four consecutive singles. The Orioles scored on a two-base error by Jeff Burroughs in the fourth, misreading a fly ball and having it bounce over his head. Thankfully, Mike Schmidt is a slow runner.

Bob Horner led off the fifth with a homer to make it 5-1. And that was it for the inning, amazingly, as Rich Gale held the Braves scoreless the rest of the inning. Cal Ripken, Jr. homered in the bottom of the inning to make it 5-2. In the eighth, Ripken led off with a double and Eddie Murray homered to make it 5-4 and send Memorial Stadium into an uproar. But Carlos Diaz settled down and pitched two innings of effective baseball, minus the Mike Schmidt double. Atlanta was instantly back in the series.

The Orioles struck early and they never looked back. Bob Walk allowed 7 runs in 3 1/3 innings, and George Brett and Kirk Gibson had home runs, Brett's a three-run homer in the fourth. Rick Behenna pitched 4 2/3 innings of two-hit ball for the Braves, allowing just one run. But when Brett Butler fanned to end the game to the jubilation of the home crowd, there was one thing the Braves couldn't spin into a postive: they were down 1-3 in the World Series.

No one had come back from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series since the 1979 Pirates did it.

The Orioles fans were prepared, dressing up in white and orange and lots of posters to cheer their Orioles on to victory and their first World Series title since 1966.

They'd have to wait, because Tommy Boggs pitched the game of his life. Allowing just three singles, two doubles and three walks, but no runs, he went eight innings holding the Orioles off the board.

The Braves gave Boggs ample run support. Rance Mulliniks started the scoring with a two-run homer and drove in the third run with a groundout. Ramirez doubled him home. Mulliniks led off the seventh with a homer and Jeff Burroughs smacked a three-run shot in the eighth. Rick Mahler had a 1-2-3 ninth and the long-sleeved Braves had some handshakes and pats on the back for each other as a reward. They had a great game and averted the end of the baseball season. For now.

The Braves were geared up for war in their home whites and the fans were ready too, with dressing in blue and white and a good number of them painting their faces and some wearing Indian headresses. Would the Braves respond?

It appeared so. For most of the game, the Braves' one run in the third held up. With two out in the third, Randy Johnson singled. Dale Murphy was up. On a 2-2 count, he chopped a ball in front of the plate. John Stefero caught the ball and unloaded in a hurry. Eddie Murray was pulled off the bag and Murphy was safe and so was Johnson. Bob Horner then singled for the Braves' run.

It held up. And so did Dave Stieb. Until the 7th. Mike Schmidt had a two-run single with one out to give the Orioles the lead. Then Cal Ripken, Jr. blasted a moon shot into the left-field stands that not only silenced the Atlanta crowd, but sent the Orioles into a frenzy! They had finally struck the decisive blow!! Stieb survived the inning, but the lead was dead. The Orioles were up by three.

The Braves gave their fans and themselves reason to hope in the eighth. Randy Johnson singled and Bob Horner doubled, scoring Johnson and cutting the lead to two. The Braves fans cheered, but it was more of a subdued cheer. Their team was still behind 4-2.

The Orioles didn't score in their half of the ninth, thanks to a strikeout and two groundouts. Carlos Diaz had done his job by holding off the Orioles, now the Braves had to come back.

Orioles setup man Don Welchel was still on the mound, butterflies floating in his stomach. It was his job to hold the lead. And the Orioles would be victorious.

First up, Rafael Ramirez. On an 0-2 pitch, the shortstop hit a fly ball to right. Kirk Gibson was out there, he was under it, but the next thing the Braves fans saw was the ball bounce out of the webbing of his glove. Ramirez reached second to the cheers of the crowd. Next was Bruce Benedict. Going on contact, Ramirez broke as Benedict swung. It was a hard ground ball right at Tommy Herr, who threw out Benedict. That was one, but Ramirez was at third. The crowd cheered as Rufino Linares came up to pinch-hit for Diaz. An uproar lifted from the stadium with one swing and a ball lining and bouncing in front of Gibson for a run. It was 4-3 and the stadium was alive again.

Orioles closer Tim Stoddard came in, hoping to nip this problem in the bud. Linares wasn't a very good runner, so they were hoping for a double play. Brett Butler tried to surprise the defense with a bunt to third, but he bunted it a little too hard. George Brett made a superb play grabbing it and firing to first to get Butler. Two down, but Randy Johnson was comining up. He had two singles. That was all the Braves needed. He was intentionally walked. Dale Murphy was coming up. He had been in this situation before. On a 2-2 count, Stoddard tried a change-up. Murphy swung... *CRACK* The ball sailed into center field and dropped quickly. Gorman Thomas ran to the side, but then slowed! The ball dropped in front of him! Linares raced around to score and Johnson reached third! The game was tied!!

Bob Horner then stepped to the plate, the cheers deafening. Stoddard threw Horner a fastball to start off. *CRACK* Horner swung and sent the ball to right! Herr leaped... but he couldn't get it!! Gibson scooped up the ball and walked back to the dugout, looking up and watching the Braves celebrate as a team at home plate! The Braves had come from the brink to tie it!

The game was on. The Orioles drew first blood when Brett homered with one out in the first inning, but that's all the gray-jerseyed Orioles got.

The Braves struck back pretty quickly. Burroughs led off the second with a single and Ramirez singled as well after Mulliniks made an out. Benedict popped up and that brought Perez to the plate. The pitcher led the Braves in batting with a .218 average, with 17 singles and 5 runs batted in. Why did I bring this up? A 1-1 fastball from Palmer was met by Perez's bat, and he shot it back up the middle and it hopped into center. Burroughs scored and the crowd went wild.

With two out in the bottom of the third, Bob Horner singled and then Burroughs lofted a fly ball towards Gibson. Gibson had already made two errors in the series, and he looked up, stopped and turned around and chased the ball, which dropped several feet behind him. Burroughs reached second and Horner reached third. Rance Mulliniks came to the plate with the crowd cheering and some doing a loud war whoop. On a full count, Palmer threw a curve and Mulliniks swung. The crowd cheered as the ball skipped past second base and a diving Tom Herr. The Braves were up 3-1 and it was their turn to celebrate.

In the bottom of the fifth, the Braves added another run, with a Johnson single, a Horner single and a Burroughs double. The Orioles got two in the sixth. Herr singled, Brett singled and Ripken doubled, scoring a run. Gibson hit a sac fly with one out, scoring the second run. With two out in the bottom of the inning, Butler singled with two out, stole second and Johnson singled him home to make it 5-3. To huge cheers, Burroughs hit a solo homer to make it 6-3. The fans continued to cheer on through the game.

It was the ninth. The Braves were up 6-3 and Steve Bedrosian came into pitch with the crowd standing and cheering and the entire Braves team on the top step of the dugout, ready to run onto the field. The first batter was Gibson. Using a whale of a swing, he belted a fly ball to deep center field. Murphy ran back but skidded to a stop as the ball hit the base of the wall, took a weird bounce and bounded over Murphy's head. Gibson was on his horse and he made it to third. This didn't silence the crowd much. The potential run at the plate in the person of Mke Young wasn't that important. It was the on-deck hitter, Gorman Thomas, that everyone was concerned about. Bedrosian reached back and fired three straight fastballs to Mike Young, the outfielder whiffing at the last one and sending a rush of excitement to the crowd. The excitement got more palpable and the cheering louder as Gorman Thomas popped up to Mulliniks. One out away. Stefero, however, didn't want to go down quietly. He swung and sent a hard rocket past Mulliniks into right, scoring Gibson. The crowd still cheered. Dan Ford pinch hit for pitcher Bill Swaggerty. Bedrosian was ready from the stretch. Ford watched a slider. Then a fastball. He then swung at a change-up. It was a grounder. A fast grounder.

Ramirez scooped it up.

Fired to first.

Horner caught it. The umpire raised his fist.

Bedlam.

Horner raised his arms in victory and Bedrosian leaped into his arms. The rest of the team ran to the infield. Some leapt for joy, others hugged and cried, but all were happy. Estatic. Atlanta was the pinnacle of the baseball world once more!

SS Rafael Ramirez

Asks for: $3,550,000
Braves say: $3,250,000

Ramirez isn't that much different than most other shortstops in the National League. Only Cal Ripken, Jr. and Alan Trammell are really better, and they're under contract. Ramirez is therefore one of the best shortstops out there, so we gave him a contract.

Braves win and Ramirez signs a one-year deal worth $3.25 million.

LF Rufino Linares

Asks for: $700,000

Linares is a nice pinch-hitter and emergency player and does whatever he is asked. However, the Braves feel that he is clogging up the bench for a younger, more talented player. Regretfully, the club releases him.

Braves release Linares

P Jim Hunter

Asks for: $1,850,000/2 yrs.

Word is that Hunter hates Atlanta and he wants to leave. However, word also is a lot of other people in the minors "hate" Atlanta. The Braves decided to offer Hunter a contract worth $50,000 less a year. He wouldn't budge. So the organization decided to let him go. It would be too expensive to keep a pitcher making nearly $2 million in the low minors.

Braves release Hunter

Thanks :D I don't even know how they did it, lol. That's three or four times in the playoffs they staved off any kind of real threat of elimination. :eek:

The Braves felt like they had some room in the payroll, so they decided to go after a couple of free agents. But to do so, they need to free up some roster space.

Atlanta Braves get:
RF Jay Buhner (62/81)

Baltimore Orioles get:
P Tommy Boggs (79/81)

Analysis: The Braves traded arguably their least talented pitcher for a top notch outfield prospect. This is a good idea, considering that Brett Butler would be asking for a huge raise in arbitration probably and Jeff Burroughs may not last too long, so the organization is stocking up on outfielders.

Next, the Braves decided to cut ties with Gene Garber. He was very good for the Braves, but the organization felt that the best relievers were here now. So off he went.

Atlanta Braves get:
C Damon Berryhill (63)

Chicago Cubs get:
P Gene Garber (75)
P Kevin Blankenship (58/66)

Analysis: This was more of a salary dump, freeing up the money for a free agent chase. Kevin Blankenship was the deal-maker in this case.

Now with the money freed up, the Braves decided to go after the crown jewel of the pitching free agent market: Nolan Ryan. Even at 37 years old, he still has above-average pitches and an excellent fastball. He shows no signs of slowing down. With Houston, Nolan had won 17 of the team's 74 games. Just think of how much more he could win with Atlanta! After haggling over the price of the contract yearly, the Braves and Ryan struck a deal.

Ryan signs a $11 million, 5 year contract with Atlanta.

1984 Atlanta Braves

Lineup
1. LF Brett Butler - Arbitration is looming at the end of this season for Butler, so this could be the last season that the Atlanta fans see him in the white and powder blue of the Braves.
2. 3B Randy Johnson - The third baseman has stepped up to become one of the best hitters in the #2 slot in the league, if not baseball.
3. CF Dale Murphy - Undoubtedly one of the best sluggers in the league.
4. 1B Bob Horner - A wonderful compliment to Murphy, they have been teammates for six years now and will stay in Atlanta for years to come. The two have combined for 165 homers and 508 RBIs the past two years.
5. RF Jeff Burroughs - In the middle of his second tour of duty with the Braves, he won a Gold Glove. We'll see how he performs with a full year in Atlanta.
6. 2B Rance Mulliniks - A similar second baseman to Hubbard, who was traded for him, Mulliniks has had timely hitting with the Braves
7. SS Rafael Ramirez - One of the better shortstops in talent when it comes to the National League, the Braves ahve confidence in better batting seasons from him.
8. C Bruce Benedict - A better hitting catcher than most would think, and he is an excellent fielding catcher.

Bench
1. C Matt Sinatro - Sinatro isn't a very good batter at all. But his worth is in his defense. So the Braves wouldn't be lacking in that area if Benedict goes down with an injury.
2. IF Paul Runge - Terrible batter, but no balls will get past him in the late innings, he has excellent range.
3. OF Milt Thompson - A rookie with above average contract and speed, he could provide well in a pinch-hitting role.
4. 1B Glenn Davis - The rookie first baseman impressed with his power and earned a bench spot. However, he has voiced displeasure with the fact that he isn't the starter. Right now, that's tough cookies.
5. IF Jerry Royster - The veteran infielder understands his role on the team and is a wonderful player to pinch hit.
6. OF Albert Hall - He has above average speed and an eye. Good in that respect. Pretty much.

Rotation:
1. Nolan Ryan - Still a flamethrower and strikeout machine after all these years. Of course, he is a walk machine too, but that's all right.
2. Dave Stieb - The Cy Young Award winner from last season, Stieb hopes to continue his mastery of the NL.
3. Pascual Perez - One of the Braves' 20-game winners, he is going to be the staple of the Atlanta rotation this season, provided he stays healthy.
4. Bob Walk - The other young staple, Walk has several pitches he can throw for strikes.
5. Joe Cowley - A rookie, he will be expected to step up in the #5 slot in the rotation.

Bullpen:
Closer: Steve Bedrosian - He faltered at some points last season, but he was still dependable, saving 38 and blowing just 4 leads.
Setup: Jeff Dedmon - Didn't give up many runs in his relieving duties.
Short: Carlos Diaz - One of the bullpen mainstays last season, he'll look to continue his good work.
Short: Rick Mahler - The former starter, he can also relieve quite well and could start in an emergency.
Middle: Zane Smith - A talented rookie lefty, he'll be looking to make a name for himself.
Long: Rick Behenna - One of last season's playoff heroes, he'll start the season in the pen.

April 1: Braves 8, Expos 1

W - Nolan Ryan (1-0)
L - Bryn Smith (0-1)
HR - Bob Horner (1)
Dale Murphy (1)
Jeff Burroughs (1)
GW RBI - Jeff Burroughs (1st, single, 1)

Three Stars:
Atlanta P Nolan Ryan - 8 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 10 K
Atlanta C Bruce Benedict - 3-5, 2B, R, 2 RBI
Atlanta RF Jeff Burroughs - 2-5, HR, R, 2 RBI

A dominating win for Atlanta. Ryan lived up to the hype and he struck out 10 Expos, allowing just three singles, a double and one run. Several Braves drove in runs in support of Ryan, driving out Smith before the end of the fifth.

April 2: Braves 6, Expos 2

W - Dave Stieb (1-0)
L - Charlie Lea (0-1)
S - Steve Bedrosian (1)
HR - Rance Mulliniks (1)
Rafael Ramirez (1)
GW RBI - Rance Mulliniks (1st, homer, 1)

Atlanta P Dave Stieb - 8 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 8 K
Montreal SS Chris Speier - 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI

Stieb turned in a very nice performance, but wilted in the ninth a little bit, allowing a bases-loaded double with no out and a 6-0 lead at the time. It scored two runs. Bedrosian came in and shut the door from there, getting the save because the tying run was on the on-deck circle.

April 3: Braves 6, Expos 2

W - Pascual Perez (1-0)
L - Ray Burris (0-1)
S - Steve Bedrosian (2)
HR - Dale Murphy (2)
GW RBI - Jeff Burroughs (3rd, single, 2)

Three Stars:
Atlanta P Pascual Perez - 8 2/3 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 9 K
Atlanta CF Dale Murphy - 2-4, 2B, HR, 2 R, 3 RBI
Montreal C Gary Carter - 2-4, 2 2B

Antoher stellar pitching performance is backed up by timely offense, including Murphy's second homer, a three-run blast in the fifth. Perez almost went the distance, but ran into big trouble in the ninth. Bedrosian came in in the exact same situation as last night and got a save.

April 4: Braves 5, Cubs 1

W - Bob Walk (1-0)
L - Tom Filer (0-1)
HR - Bob Horner (2)
GW RBI - Rafael Ramirez (2nd, double, 1)

Three Stars:
Atlanta P Bob Walk - 8 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 4 K
Atlanta 2B Rance Mulliniks - 3-4, 2B, RBI
Atlanta SS Rafael Ramirez - 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI

The Braves and Walk had control from the start. The only hiccup was Ramirez making two errors in the same inning, which led the only Cubs run. Tom Filer didn't make it out of the fifth, a two-run double by Ramirez and a Horner solo homer the big damage. Carlos Diaz closed out the game.

April 5: Braves 6, Cubs 4

W - Nolan Ryan (2-0)
L - Greg Harris (0-1)
S - Steve Bedrosian (3)
HR - CHI - Jim Morrison (2)
ATL - Bob Horner (3)
GW RBI - Randy Johnson (3rd, double, 1)

Three Stars:
Atlanta P Nolan Ryan - 7 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 7 K; 2-2, 2 RBI
Chicago 3B Jim Morrison - 2-5, HR, 2 R, RBI
Atlanta 1B Bob Horner - 2-4, HR, 2 R, RBI

Nolan pitched into this game and relatively held the Cubs back. Because of the kind of pitcher he is, he walked a few people and struck out several batters as well, throwing 152 pitches!! Bedrosian came in and worked around trouble to get his third save.

April 6: Braves 4, Cubs 3, 13 innings

W - Carlos Diaz (1-0)
L - Bill Campbell (0-2)
HR - CHI - Ryne Sandberg (1)
ATL - Dale Murphy (3)
GW RBI - Bruce Benedict (13th, single, 1)

Three Stars:
Chicago P Dickie Noles - 7 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 5 K
Chicago SS Ryne Sandberg - 1-6, HR, R, 3 RBI
Atlanta P Dave Stieb - 9 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

This was a see-saw game, that was for sure. Dale Murphy gave teh Braves the lead first when he homered in the first. Dave Stieb made that hold up until the eighth, when Ryne Sandberg hit a three-run homer. Burroughs tied it with a single in the bottom of the inning. Then goose eggs. Until:


BOTTOM OF THE THIRTEENTH
Bob Horner singled to center. <--1>
Jeff Burroughs grounded to third, forcing the runner at second. <--1>
Rance Mulliniks laid down a sacrifice bunt back to the pitcher. <-2->
Glenn Davis pinch hit for Rafael Ramirez. <-2->
Glenn Davis was intentionally walked. <-21>
Bruce Benedict singled in the right field gap, scoring a run. <3-1>

BRAVES WIN: 4-3

Boom. :D

Good start but having ryan there will help for sure. Even though everytime I had him on a team I never got a no hitter.

Atlanta P Rick Mahler - 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, SV.
Atlanta 3B Randy Johnson - 3-5, 3 R, RBI.

Pascual Perez wasn't the master of his domain, giving up five runs in five innings, but Mahler was, pitching four innings of shutout relief. The Braves tacked on 12 runs in support of both pitchers, as three Braves had two RBIs
and Jeff Burroughs had three.

April 8: Braves 6, Mets 5

W - Jeff Dedmon (1-0)
L - Brent Gaff (0-2)

Braves 2B Rance Mulliniks - 1-3, HR, BB, 2 R, 2 RBI
Braves P Bob Walk - 7 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 6 K
The Mets struck first, scoring three runs with two out in the first, on a wild pitch and a two-run homer by Stapleton. Bob Horner had an RBI walk in the third that made it 3-1. In the sixth inning, Rance Mulliniks blasted a two-run homer to tie the game. In the seventh, Randy Johnson's RBI single put the Braves up, but in the eighth, Harold Baines answered with a two-run homer to make it 5-4 Mets. In the bottom of the eighth, Jerry Royster played the hero with a two-run single and Mahler sealed the deal in the ninth. :)

April 9: Braves 9, Mets 5

W - Jeff Dedmon (2-0)
L - Jesse Orosco (0-1)
HR - Bob Horner (4)
GW RBI - Randy Johnson (8th, walk, 2)

Three Stars:
Braves 1B Bob Horner - 3-4, HR, 2 R, 4 RBI
Mets RF Harold Baines - 2-4, 2B, 3 R, BB
Braves CF Dale Murphy - 2-5, R, 3 RBI

Both starters went 7 innings. Behenna pitched well, but he finished his day's work down 3-1, being lifted for a pinch-hitter in the seventh. But it ended well, as the Braves tied the game. In the eighth, the Braves broke through with six runs, highlighted by Dale Murphy's bases loaded two-run single and Bob Horner's three-run blast. George Foster had a bases loaded two-run single in the top of the ninth, but that was all.

April 10: Mets 3, Braves 2

W - Walt Terrell (1-2)
L - Nolan Ryan (2-1)
S - Jesse Orosco (1)
HR - Dave Stapleton (3)
GW RBI - Glenn Hubbard (2nd, single)

Three Stars:
Mets P Walt Terrell - 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
Mets SS Dave Stapleton - 2-3, HR, 2 R, BB, RBI
Braves LF Brett Butler - 2-3, 2 BB

Before the game of April 10, the Los Angeles Dodgers contacted GM John Mullen with a proposal that was too good to pass up, wanting to give up three very nice prospects for Rick Mahler. Or so they thought. After a lot of thought, Mullen decided to turn it down. Mahler was too valuable, even in a relief role.

The game didn't turn out well, though. Walt Terrell pitched six innings of shutout ball and Doug Bair and Jesse Orosco each allowed just one run. Nolan Ryan took the hard-luck loss, allowing three runs in eight innings while striking out eight.
