Meck: How tough was it for the Braves to trade a player like Saltalamacchia ..
Projected to be a real good ML Catcher - 25 HR's a yr. ?

Meck: The impact Teixeira has had on the clubhouse and team ? [3-Run Homer in his 1st game].
I noticed he's hitting almost 100 points higher from the right side ?
Bobby: 'He has a higher avg. from the right .. and more power from the left.'

Meck: Mahay is a 10 yr. vet .. outstanding LH pitcher you needed ?

Meck: Octavio Dotel throws gas from the right.
I noticed he's started 34 times in his career [ last in '01 w/ Astros].
Have you ever thought about maybe using him as a starter ?

Bobby talks about Dotel coming back from Tommy John surgery.

How's Smoltz doing and his shoulder ?

Meck: Can you talk about the Escobar play [ stealing 2nd] in Ariz. w/ 2 outs in the 9th.
Is that the greatest heads-up play you've ever seen ?
Bobby: 'It never hurts to be alert.'
'Never take anything for granted .. an offensive guy or defensive guy.'

Meck: Have you ever seen a guy play harder than Francoeur ?
'He [Frenchy] plays hurt, too.' 'You can always pencil him in.' - BC
Bobby: 'He's hitting .300 and will drive in close to 100. '
Meck: You drafted Tom Glavine in 1987 as Braves' GM.
5 times a 20-Game Winner .. 2 Cy Youngs .. A World Series MVP ['95]
Your personal thoughts on Tom Glavine getting his 300th win ?

Bobby: 'I think the world of Tommy and his family.'
'Seems like he's still a part of the Braves .. even though he's pitching for the Mets.'

Meck: Teixeira's fav player is Don Mattingly [23]Yanks 1st baseman. Tex wore # 23 w/ Rangers.
