  • Funny how things work out.  Here on April 21st, how many of you out there would have guessed the New York Mets for the second-best record in baseball, and the Atlanta Braves at #6?  Okay, I see two hands… and I expect you’re both lying to me.

  • Last week this time, (last Monday) the Atlanta Braves were 5-1 after sweeping the Miami Dead Fish and taking 2 of 3 from the New York Pest.

  • The Blue Jays teed off on Braves pitching last night, final score 9-3. I’m going to go ahead and call this a four game series even though they’ll switch locations tomorrow. The probables for the rest of the series are Maholm v. Morrow (12:37), Rogers v. Medlen (7:10) and Dickey v. Minor (7:10). Last night was an ugly one for both Tim Hudson and the relievers.... read more...

Would Atlanta be able to win games after the departures of OF Justin Upton, C Evan Gattis, OF Jason Heyward, and CL Craig Kimbrel?
