AJ Pierzynski Will Run Over an Umpire If He Has to

It was a weird day for Braves catcher AJ Pierzynski. If you look at the box score alone, it looks like he had a solid day (despite the loss), going 2-4 with a run scored. However, those who watched the game — or followed along on social media — know AJ had quite the adventure on the field. In the fifth inning, AJ was up to usual AJ things, like running over the home plate umpire...

Vol. 2: NL East Weekly Wrap-Up

The best team in the National League is… the New York Mets? Week two has come to a close in the National League East, and while the Atlanta Braves are still surprising people with their team of outcasts, the New York Mets have taken the league by storm. Eight consecutive wins have the Mets sitting atop the NL East in dominating fashion. While they seemingly lose a player to injury...

Christian Yelich makes fantastic diving catch, Braves waste challenge

I’m trying not to rip on the 5-1 Atlanta Braves too much…but I’m really not sure what Fredi Gonzalez and his coaching staff were thinking by challenging this stunning diving catch by Christian Yelich. Yeah, it looked like the ball came out of his glove at first…but one look at the replay would have showed the Atlanta coaching staff that it was his *hat* that was on the ground...

Atlanta Braves off to hot 5-1 start

The Atlanta Braves entered the season with low expectations and a lot of questions. Would anybody even compete with the Nationals in the NL East? Would Atlanta be able to win games after the departures of OF Justin Upton, C Evan Gattis, OF Jason Heyward, and CL Craig Kimbrel? Nobody is giving the Braves a chance this year, nobody except themselves. The Braves will have an entirely...

Watch: Andrelton Simmons Steals Hit From Travis d’Arnaud

Since the end of the 2014 campaign, the Atlanta Braves have traded away key players in Jason Heyward, Justin Upton, Craig Kimbrel and Evan Gattis. What they didn’t part with, however, was Andrelton Simmons—the best defensive shortstop in the MLB. And Friday night showed a perfect example of why the Braves kept him around. New York Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud smacked a grounder...

Embrace the New Look of the Atlanta Braves

I cannot remember an offseason quite like this past one for the Atlanta Braves. The firing of GM Frank Wren immediately after failing to reach the postseason was the first of many difficult but necessary moves for the Braves to reaffirm their strong culture of winning. During Wren’s tenure as GM, the ball club had... The post Embrace the New Look of the Atlanta Braves appeared...

Braves make modest upgrade with Trevor Cahill

On Thursday night, the Atlanta Braves acquired Trevor Cahill and a wheelbarrow full of cash from the Diamondbacks for stalled minor leaguer Josh Elander. Atlanta will only cover roughly $5.5 million of the $12 million that Cahill is owed in 2015, and will also be on the hook for the buyout of his 2016 club option (unless of course, the Braves exercise that $13 million option for...

Which Trevor Cahill Did the Braves Get?

The Braves have acquired Trevor Cahill and cash for their Josh Elander, a 24-year-old former catcher that was playing outfield in High-A Lynchburg for the second time last year. So mostly this transaction is about the Braves getting a cheap starter on the cheap. The quality of that incoming pitcher, and the fit on a […]
