I received the news about The Trade on Thursday at noon EST. My buddy Mike came over to me and asked how much I liked the fact that Justin Upton was just traded to the Atlanta Braves. My reaction then is the same as it is now, four days later: it stinks. more…
Was there really a point to this? Bringing back the screaming savage indian of years past? It’s bad enough that racism like this existed for so long, it was Atlanta’s logo from 1967 to 1989. The mohawked image first made an appearance in 1954 during the Braves’ Milwaukee days. From Big League Stew: The re-emergence …
ATLANTA (AP) — Talk about a wild card. This one was just plain wild. Chipper Jones played his final game. The Atlanta fans turned Turner Field into a trash heap after a disputed infield fly. And the St. Louis Cardinals did what they always seem to do in October. Celebrated another postseason triumph. Matt Holliday …
What a finish to baseball’s regular season, the greatest show on dirt. That was literally the most exciting night of baseball we have ever witnessed in our entire lives. Sincerely hope you got to see at least one of these games.
The Atlanta Braves and Boston Red Sox polished off their respective collapses while the Tampa Bay Rays made the most [...]

Oh, not for the Atlanta Braves. Sunday afternoon in our nation’s capital, the Braves were whitewashed by Washington’s Ross Detwiler and a trio of relievers. For the rest of us, though, events have conspired to give us a great deal to watch in the National League, which certainly isn’t what we expected just a week or two ago. . Because with the Braves losing [...]
The St. Louis Cardinals could have done it. The Atlanta Braves were a game and a half up in the Wild Card race, idle, and the Cardinals had a cushy four-run lead over the punchless Mets. They could have pulled to within a game, made it easier on themselves, and allowed Albert Pujols one more shot at glory with the Redbirds before his free agency.
Now the Cardinals are two games[...]
This is now the seventh franchise I have compiled an ‘All-Time’ team for. I began this endeavor in July of 2009 and have worked on many different lists and composite articles since then. At this rate perhaps I will have it done by the end of the decade, if the Lord tarries.
The Braves are a storied franchise to be sure. They began as the Boston[...]
With Spring Training already underway, it’s time for one of our favorite things in all the world: Season Previews. Four years ago, they began as a semi-serious analysis and ended up as half-assed haiku. We’re just gonna go with what we know. Continuing with our preview of the National League East, here are the Atlanta Braves:
So long Bobby Cox…
After 17 seasons in the game, Garret Anderson is hanging up his glove. Funny, we totally thought he retired already.
The 38-year-old left fielder broke into the majors back in 1994 and ended up compiling more than 2,500 hits, 287 home runs, and a career batting average of .293. He also enjoyed a World Series title with [...]
