Braves Series Against Nationals Key?

The Braves play the Nationals today in a rare Friday afternoon game.  Unless my memory is starting to soften, I can't ever remember the Braves playing a regularly scheduled tilt on a Friday afternoon.  Can you? Half the Braves fan base probably won't realize the game was played in the afternoon until they sit down with their favorite beverage after dinner and turn on ... Read More »

Same Old Braves So Far

It's only one game and only one series, but the Braves showed us something against the Brewers in Milwaukee. Atlanta won in typical Braves fashion, with pitching and defense and after the losses in the starting rotation, that is huge for team and fan confidence. Aaron Harang just shut up all the naysayers who questioned the move in releasing Freddy Garcia to sign him. ... Read More »

Wood Gets Braves On Board

The Braves notched their first win of the season behind starter Alex Wood and two homers by Freddie Freeman, a homer by Jason Heyward and two doubles by Dan Uggla.  That isn't a misprint or writer error, Uggla stroked two doubles. I don't want to get too excited too early, but Uggla has been "on the ball" the first two games, driving it to all fields with authority.  I ... Read More »

Braves Loss Only One Game…Right?

The Braves are one game into a 162 game season so you can't assume much of anything after the Opening Day loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.  But the game did look eerily similar to what we were used to seeing last season when the Braves struggled.  At the very least you can say that not a lot has changed. The good news is that Julio Teheran pitched well despite not having ... Read More »

Braves Baseball Begins Anew

Braves baseball starts today and isn't it great that a new season is here.  Mother Nature may still be stingy with springtime weather, but she can't hold back the start of Braves baseball.  It is here and ain't it great! What I love about baseball is that once it starts, it is with us every day... The next six and a half months baseball will always be here to wrap ... Read More »

Gattis Expectations Too High?

Atlanta Braves catcher Evan Gattis became a folk hero last season with his rags to riches story, mammoth home runs, late game heroics and engaging personality.  With Brian McCann leaving for free agency, Gattis will be the Braves starting catcher and is expected to be a major force in the Braves line-up. Are the expectations for Gattis too high? It was revealed that ... Read More »

Will Braves Win NL East?

Before the injuries to Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy, I thought the Braves had a good chance to repeat as National League Eastern division champions.  With those injuries, my win projection on the Braves has changed. The Braves won 96 games last season and looking at the roster and the competitive level in the National League, I was originally projecting 92 wins for ... Read More »

Braves 2014 Player Performance Projections

Which Atlanta Braves players will tear it up this season and who are the ones that will disappoint? Projecting what major league baseball players will do in the regular season is one of the more intriguing crap shoots in sports.  There are hundreds if not thousands of websites out there that put out projections for fantasy league players and many pundits and "experts" ...

Braves Release Garcia Then Boom Harang

After the Braves released Freddy Garcia yesterday I was ready to write an article about what a mistake I thought they had made.  I like players who can produce in the clutch and Garcia was great last season in September and then in the playoff game against the Dodgers.
