The Atlanta Braves have been very quiet this winter

A winter that was predicted to be full of change for an Atlanta Braves team fresh off of a 96-66 record and another first round playoff exit has been just that for the reigning NL East champions, but the majority of the moves have been subtractions, not additions. The exodus began when longtime starting pitcher Tim Hudson bolted for the bay in San Francisco, signing a two-year deal...

Why the Atlanta Braves title hopes may not be doomed after all

Move over Jason Heyward, a new catalyst sits atop the Atlanta Braves lineup. Jordan Schafer, after a spectacular weekend performance, is making this Jason Heyward injury a lot easier to swallow.

Jason Heyward is simply unreal

Last night, the Braves were no-hit until the seventh inning, and trailed until the top of the ninth. In the bottom of the ninth, the Mets, down a run, managed to get runners on first and second with two outs, and Justin Turner stroked a liner to left center, which looked like it might tie or end the game for the Mets.
