BRAVES RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Vin Scully tells story about Gomes being attacked by wolf

I’m more curious as to why a “hired hand” brought in by Gomes’s grandmother would bring a leashed wolf to a jobsite, but hey, I’m just being picky now. I’d much...

Out of nowhere the lucky number seven, which makes Craps players in Vegas millions of dollars, was also the lucky number for the Braves. It was not only the seventh inning, but they scored seven runs...

View image | gettyimages.com While he looked like somewhat of a throw in from the Craig Kimbrel trade that took place the day before the season started, the Braves knew they had some potential in centerfield in Cameron Maybin and he has shown that potential over his first 100 plate appearances in Atlanta. Prior to this year, Maybin has been ravished with a number of injuries that...

Jace Peterson might just be a viable leadoff hitter for the Braves

Braves Pulling Ahead In Heyward for Miller Trade

I did it. You probably did too. I tuned in for the last inning of Shelby Miller’s no-hit bid yesterday afternoon. I’d like to think I was just a curious baseball interloper taking the time out of my day to see a small bit of baseball history. Since 1901 it’s only happened 240 times, right? I’d have stopped what I was doing even if it was a Drew Hutchison or Sonny Gray or...
