The Braves don't value on-base percentage as much as other teams, one NL official told Olney (Pence has a .354 OBP). Also read this gem the other day in a KLAWchat: Jason (Atlanta) KLAW, Fredi Gonzales admitted the other day that he had no idea of the OBA of Schafer, Mclouth and Heyward and that he "thought" Schafer's was highest. How can a GM let something like this pass in a day and age when EVERY team employs people to apply advanced statistical analysis? Klaw (2:57 PM) Well, the GM is obviously fine with this. I wouldn't be if I were an Atlanta fan, but the way that lineup is set and the way the roster is used implies that Wren is completely OK with Fredi's (mis)management. --Frustrating.
