Why is Watson still in Dayton? It's not even a challenge for him anymore.

Just speculating, but I would guess because he has yet to pitch into the 7th inning in his conversion from reliever to starter. At the lower level it should be easier to work on pitch efficiency without getting hammered.

Maybe one of the major league guys can teach him how to "pitch to contact":devil:

Conine and/ or Hatteberg need to be moved. This team is going no where and Votto is the future. He is accomplishing nothing by dominating in Triple A.

Better yet, we could call up Votto to play 1B everyday, keep Hatteberg and Conine, and build something resembling a major league bench.

he's a pure knuckleball pitcher, those guys can throw over 100 pitches easy. I think there's no room at this time thats why he's at low A, theyll make room soon enough.

If you're talking about Watson, he's not a "pure" knuckleball pitcher. He has one pitch, a knucklecurve, which resembles a knuckler. He's more of a power pitcher who uses the knucklecurve as his offspeed pitch.

Yeah, Watson relies a lot on his fastball and knuckle curve and will mix in a slider and a change up every now and again. His bread and butter though is his knuckle curve that runs about 84 MPH that coming out of his hand looks just like his fastball.

Didn't see this elsewhere on the forum...but there was quite a performance during this game... http://www.wdef.com/node/5567

That said...makes me wonder if this guy was drunk or something. He was out there to put on a show thats for sure. He even bows to the crowd as he walks off the field. At least he got his 15 minutes.

Whoah! That was great! Making the plate bigger, I've never seen that one before. His players were having trouble hiding their amusement. Why did he belly crawl up to the mound?

Former Lookouts Manager Phillip Wellman To Manage 2007 Mississippi Braves

Phillip Wellman will move from the third base coaching box into the dugout next season as the manager of the Mississippi Braves.

Local fans have another reason to take in professional baseball games next summer at BellSouth Park. Wellman is back -- not with Chattanooga -- but with the Mississippi Braves.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that the Atlanta organization has replaced Mississippi Braves' manager Jeff Blauser with former Lookouts' manager Phillip Wellman.

Wellman replaces Blauser, who managed the 2006 M-Braves through a disappointing 58-80 season. Blauser, who managed just a year, has been offered a non-managerial position in the organization, Braves director of player development Kurt Kemp said. Blauser was a roving infield instructor before becoming Mississippi manager.

The Braves have not yet named a replacement for Brian Snitker as manager at Class AAA Richmond. Snitker was named Atlanta third base coach after Fredi Gonzalez became manager with Florida.

Chino Cadahia was also added to the Atlanta staff as bench coach. He will be replaced as minor league field coordinator by Tommy Shields, his assistant last season.

The Braves named John Coppolella, formerly with the Yankees, as director of baseball administration, replacing Tyrone Brooks, who took a job as a scout with Cleveland.

Minor league pitching coordinator Bill Fischer also must be replaced. He took a similar job with Kansas City.

Wellman, who was a colorful manager with the Lookouts, was known for his unique rants-and-ravings whenever an umpire ejected him from a game.

That's embarrassing. I'm guessing he doesn't have asperations to make it any further in baseball like to coach in the majors. Although I thought it was funny, I think he was making a mockery of the game.
