Braves trade for pick #76 in 2016 draft

I’m really glad that baseball began allowing the trading of some draft picks. And so are the Braves. Atlanta used the acquisition of additional draft picks to their advantage last year by trading for two additional selections, one as a part of the major Craig Kimbrel trade with the Padres and the other in a pure salary dump trade with the Diamondbacks*. For this year’s draft...

Braves rewind: Whatever happened to...Jermaine Dye?

Let's take a look back at Braves from years past. Hitting a home run in your major-league debut is always memorable, but especially so when it's also your first major-league at-bat.

The Atlanta Braves did the not-so-surprising thing earlier this week by firing manager Fredi Gonzalez after a league-worst 9-28 start.
