C2 SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2001 BASEBALL THE SAUNA JOURNAL Struggling Braves Perennial title contenders have first sub-.500 May since '93 By PAUL NEWBERRY 'Die Assiickiicil I'lvss A TLANTA — Brian Jordan stood at his locker after batting practice, trying to find a smidgen of hope in a most un-Braves-like start to the season. "It's time we had to deal with a little adversity," the outfielder said. "Maybe this will make us even stronger when we come to the end of the season." He paused for effect, then added, "At least I hope it works out that way" The Braves are accustomed to sitting in first place, the regular season nothing more than a tuneup for their annual trip to the playoffs. They have been a part of every postseason since 1991 — a record run of nine straight division titles. All guarantees are off this year. Plagued by injuries and anemic hitting, not to mention a pitching staff that no longer dominates, the Braves stumbled through April with a 12-14 record, their first sub- .500 opening since 1993. General manager John Schuerholz is quick to point out that the team bounced back from its slow start eight years ago to win 104 games, second-most in franchise history "I think most reasonable people with a good knowledge of baseball don't put much credence in April records," he said. "If there are some people that do, I guess they should look back at 1993, and feel pretty good about the way we're playing this yean" Of course, Schuerholz is hardly pleased with the first month's performance. The Braves entered May hitting just .237 as a team and sporting a cumulative ERA of 4.29. "No one here is satisfied," AP file photo Braves shortstop Rafael Furcal (right) and left fielder B.J. Surhoff are unable to catch a shallow fly ball against Milwaukee earlier this week. Plagued by injuries, an unproductive offense and a pitching staff that no longer dominates, the Braves were 12-14 during April. the GM said. "But we also recognize that it's only the first month." The warning signs were evident as far back as the last postseason, when the Braves were swept in the first round by the St. Louis Cardinals. Over the winter, the Braves were considered among the favorites to land either Alex Rodriguez or Mike Hampton — maybe both. They didn't get either one, and wound up losing one of their most productive hitters, Andres Galarraga. When spring training began, there already were grumbles among Atlanta fans about the lack of major moves. Then things got Worse. John Smoltz felt pain in his reconstructed elbow and put his comeback from Tommy John surgery on hold. Reserve catcher Eddie Perez scuttled his comeback altogether for this year when his right shoulder required more surgery In addition, Jordan, second baseman Quilvio Veras and outfielder B.J. Surhoff were recuperating from operations. This was a team custom-made for a slow start. "It's too early to worry," Jordan said. "We've just got to be patient and let it come. It will. There's no doubt in my mind it will. We're too good a team to play like this." On the other hand, the Braves hardly appear to be a dominating team — especially on offense. Except for the Joneses — Chipper and An- druw — there are no intimidating hitters in the lineup. Surhoff was hitting under .200 — yet actually found himself in the cleanup spot for a few games. Veras was putting up similar numbers, hampered by injury and illness. Javy Lopez was struggling. So was Rafael Furcal, last year's NL rookie of the year who was supposed to be a cat- alystat the top of the batting order. Newcomer Rico Brogna cooled off significantly after a torrid debut. The Braves showed signs of breaking out during a 10- game road trip, which included stops at hitter-friendly parks in Houston and Arizona. But they managed four runs in their first two games back home, bringing their Turner Field total to 27 runs in 11 contests. "I think this ballclub is put together really well^for this ballpark," said batting coach Merv Rettenmund, referring to the longstanding emphasis on pitching. "If you put us in Colorado or Houston or Arizona, we woald definitely have to strengthen the middle of the lineup." Any team with Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine has to be considered one of the better-armed teams in the game, but the Braves don't have a dominating rotation from top to bottom as they did through much of the 1990s. Not yet anyway Smoltz, who hasn't pitched in a real game since the 1999 World Series, hopes to rejoin the rotation in a couple of weeks, after rehabbing in the minors. There's no guarantee he will be the same pitcher he was before surgery. Worst-to-flrst; Phils open eyes Pitching a big reason why Philadelphia is leading its division By ROB MAADDI The)Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — Larry Bowa just wanted to make the Fliiladelphia Phillies competitive this season after a dreadful 2000. He's done that and so much more. The Phillies, tied with the Chicago Cubs for the moors' worst record last season, are in first place in the NL Easf this late in the season for the first time since 1995. OK, it's only May, but after losing 97 games last year and finishing with a winning record just once since 1986, who can blame the PhiUies for being excited. Philadelphia got off to a 14-6 start that included a six-game winning streak and a three- game sweep of the Atlanta Braves. The Phillies were 16-11 going into the weekend and four games ahead of the nine-time defending division champion Braves. "If they gave me the stats right now, I probably wouldn't believe it," said Bowa, hired to replace Terry Francona after last season. Bowa's surprise comes from the way the Phillies have achieved their success. They've done it with solid pitching and woeful hitting. An offense that features Bobby Abreu, Scott Rolen, Pat Burrell and Mike Lieberthal has struggled all season. No starter was batting higher than Travis Lee's .283 and no player ranked among the league leaders in any hitting category The middle of the order — Abreu, Rolen and Lieberthal — was batting a combined .229 with nine homers and 38 RBIs. Manny Ramirez of the Boston Red Sox had nine homers and 33 RBIs all by himself. "Our pitching has been out­ standing the whole year and our hitting hasn't done anything all year," Lieberthal said. "If we can come around, it'll at least give our pitchers a little leeway, and it'U make the team much better." Omar Daal, a 19-game loser last season, was named opening-day starter after an impressive spring and has responded by pitching like an ace. He is 30 with a 3.13 ERA and the Phillies are 5-1 when he starts. Amaury Telemaco, the No. 5 starter, also is 3-0 with a 3.31 ERA. Bruce Chen (1-1, 3.58 ERA) and Robert Person (23,4.66 ERA) have pitched well. Even Randy Wolf, who struggled at the start of the season, had two straight solid outings. "Our starters, for the most part, have kept us in games," Bowa said. "That's all we can ask for." While the starters have kept them in games, the bullpen is the main reason why the Phillies have won so many games. After the relievers posted a league-worst 37 losses and 5.72 ERA last season, Philadel-, phia spent almost $17 million on Jose Mesa, Ricky Bottalico and Rheal Cormier. The three are proving to be worth it. Bottalico has a 1.88 ERA, Cormier hasn't allowed a run in his last six outings and Mesa converted six of his first seven save opportunities. Overall, the bullpen was 7-3 with a 3.08 ERA and eight saves. The pitchers are all anxiously waiting for the offense to snap out of its slump. Rolen, who averaged 26 homers and 92 RBIs in his first four seasons, had three homers, 12 RBIs and a .202 average in his first 27 games. Abreu, a .313 career hitter, was batting .240, Lieberthal had one homer and nine RBIs and Doug GlanviUe finally was moved out of the leadoff spot after failing to improve his low on-base percentage.
