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.

Have the Atlanta Braves figured it out?  We all know that baseball is a very long season.  A lot of different things can take place over 162 games.  I try not to get caught up in the good things that happen during a winning streak, but I simply can’t help myself after these last five games. Over these last five games the Braves have scored a total of 31 runs.  The Bravos scoring 31...

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. End the game it did, although not quite how Turner and the Mets...
