  • For a long time the Atlanta Braves internet family has been blessed with two separate, but excellent blogs: Talking Chop and (I hope) Capitol Avenue Club.

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...

  • Baseball Reference Tomahawk Take Editor’s Notes:  Ervin Santana didn’t pitch horribly on Monday night as he gave up two runs on three hits and had six strikeouts.  For the most part, he kept the Braves in the game and gave them a chance to beat the Nationals….but the offense flopped once more.  Atlanta picked up […] ... read more...
