ATLANTA —Plagued by injuries, Brian McCann endured the worst season of his
career. Steve Young Jersey . Hell watch the Braves
wild-card playoff game from the bench. Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez announced
that David Ross—not McCann—will start Friday against the St. Louis
Cardinals. But Gonzalez stressed that its not a permanent move if the Braves
advance past the one-game playoff. “I think going forward Mac will catch,
obviously, in a longer series, a five-game series or even a seven-game series if
we get that far,” Gonzalez said Thursday before a workout at Turner Field. “Well
play the matchups.” Gonzalez said he made the move primarily for defence,
believing Ross has a better chance of keeping the Cardinals from attempting to
steal. Also, Ross was behind the plate for two of the most dominant performances
by starting pitcher Kris Medlen: a 12-strikeout effort against Colorado on Sept.
3 and a career-high 13 Ks against Washington on Sept. 14. “You feel like (Ross)
gives you a good chance to win the ballgame,” Gonzalez said. “Defensively, we
know how well he can throw people out. The Cardinals have a tendency to put
people in motion a lot. And with the combination of Rossy and Medlen, maybe it
gives you an opportunity to shut that down a little bit.” Slowed by a knee
injury and an ailing right shoulder, McCann batted just .230 with 20 homers and
67 RBIs this season. Ross hit .256 with nine homers and 23 RBIs. Gonzalez said
it was difficult to tell McCann that he wouldnt be starting the wild-card game.
“Ive been thinking about this for three or four days,” the manager said. “Hes a
very important piece to our team and hes a warrior.” Gonzalez said Ross, a
right-handed hitter, could start again if the Braves advance to face Washington
and left-hander Gio Gonzalez, since McCann bats lefty. But the manager stressed
that McCann will get the bulk of the playing time if Atlanta makes an extended
post-season run. “Hes beat up. Hes been banged up for a while,” Fredi Gonzalez
said. “Again, a one-game series, you go with Rossy. In a longer series, (McCann
is) going to play. Hes not that banged up.” McCann said he understood the
decision. “I wish I was playing. But Im not. Thats it,” he said. “Rossys been
playing unbelievable. Im his biggest fan. Hes one of my best friends in the
world and hes been playing great. “Ill hopefully get in there somehow, maybe
pinch-hit late. Well see.” Ross called it the biggest game of his career, but
stressed that McCann is still the teams primary catcher. “Hes done some things
that are second to none in this game,” Ross said. “Im going to go out there and
give it my best, but I dont want to take anything away from Brian McCann.”
McCann said theres a good chance hes going to need shoulder surgery in the
off-season. Hes already had two cortisone shots, but doesnt plan on taking
another one. “Ive been battling a shoulder injury for a while,” he said. “My
production hasnt been where it needed to be to help the team win.” Jerry Rice Womens Jersey . About 600 people
