  2. There are conflicting reports about Ryan Doumit’s future as a catcher

    Jan 26, 2014, 4:40 PM EDT

    Ryan Doumit

    The Braves acquired Ryan Doumit in a trade with the Twins last month, expecting him to contribute mostly off the bench as a pinch-hitter. Doumit had suffered a concussion in August. While he made a few starts behind the dish upon his return in mid-August, he contributed only as a pinch-hitter, DH, and occasional outfielder…

  4. Heyman: Brian McCann to be heavily pursued by some of MLB’s richest teams

    Oct 20, 2013, 8:10 PM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Atlanta Braves

    Last week, we learned that some in the business think long time Braves catcher Brian McCann could earn as much as $100 million in free agency this off-season. That could come to fruition as many of the teams that will be in hot pursuit of McCann’s services rank among baseball’s richest teams. Jon Heyman of…

    The Dodgers stormed out to an early 2-0 lead against Freddy Garcia behind a pair of solo homers from Carl Crawford, but the Braves are fighting back against Clayton Kershaw.

    Atlanta Braves v Los Angeles Dodgers - Game Three

    It was a close back-and-forth affair between the Braves and Dodgers for the first three and a half innings in Game 3 of the NLDS in Los Angeles tonight. The game was tied at four-all, then the Dodger offense woke up, building a lead as large as nine runs entering the bottom of the ninth.…

    Oct 4, 2013, 9:38 PM EDT

    Division Series - Los Angeles Dodgers v Atlanta Braves - Game Two

    We knew going into the playoffs that the Braves’ biggest strength was their pitching and it shone through tonight against the Dodgers. Starter Mike Minor held the Dodgers to one run over six and one-third innings of work on eight hits and a walk while striking out five. The Dodgers’ lone run against him came…

  11. Andrelton Simmons puts the Braves on the board with bat, limits Dodger damage with glove

    Oct 4, 2013, 7:14 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Atlanta Braves

    The Braves got on the board against Dodgers starter Zack Greinke thanks to their handy shortstop. Evan Gattis, the goat of last night’s game, reached on a single to left, then advanced to second on a ground out. With two outs, shortstop Andrelton Simmons laced a double to right field, sailing over Yasiel Puig‘s head.…

  12. NLDS Game 2: Dodgers vs. Braves lineups

    Oct 4, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Things went so well for the Dodgers last night that they decided to use the same lineup in Game 2 that they used in Game 1. Things went so poorly for the Braves last night that they decided to use the same lineup in Game 2 that they used in Game 1. Er, never mind.…

  13. Yasiel Puig makes presence known in postseason debut

    Oct 4, 2013, 12:42 AM EDT

    Yasiel Puig

    Batting fifth for just the second time as a major leaguer, Yasiel Puig went 2-for-3 and collected an outfield assist in his first postseason game as the Dodgers beat the Braves 6-1 on Thursday. Puig had mostly been hitting at the top of the order, but manager Don Mattingly opted to drop him to the…

  14. Braves’ replacements flounder in Game 1 loss

    Oct 4, 2013, 12:16 AM EDT

    Elliot Johnson

    With Dan Uggla off the roster and B.J. Upton on the bench, the Braves were banking on lesser names helping their cause against the Dodgers. It didn’t work in Game 1, as both left fielder Evan Gattis and second baseman Elliot Johnson had key misplays in the 6-1 loss. Uggla and Upton are the Braves’…

  15. The Braves score one off Clayton Kershaw in the fourth

    Oct 3, 2013, 10:21 PM EDT

    NLDS Dodgers Braves Baseball

    The Braves got on the board against Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw in the fourth inning, but they were unable to make it a big inning.

Ellis C Clayton Kershaw P Skip Schumaker in center, starting is not…

  18. Terry Pendleton got angry and grabbed Chris Johnson for some reason

    The scene: The Braves were down 5-1 in the ninth inning, but were staging a rally against Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon. Justin Upton hit a three-run home run to bring the score to 5-4, and the Braves kept fighting. Freddie Freeman singled and Evan Gattis walked to put the winning run in scoring position for…

  19. Cubs rally late, prevent the Braves from clinching the NL East for at least a little while

    Sep 21, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    Travis Wood, Dioner Navarro

    The Braves entered the day with a magic number of one to clinch the NL East and eliminate the Washington Nationals from division title contention. If they could overcome Cubs starter Travis Wood, they could bust out the bubbly at Wrigley, but the Cubs had other ideas. Wood surrendered a run in the fourth on…

  20. Jason Heyward might be able to return early next week

    MLB.com’s Mark Bowman has a big update on Braves outfielder Jason Heyward, who faced live pitching on Wednesday for the first time since having his jaw fractured in two places by a Jon Niese fastball August 21: The Braves are still not providing a definitive timetable for Heyward. But there seems to be reason to…

  21. Bizarro World: Craig Kimbrel blows a save, Andrelton Simmons commits a game-ending error.

    Sep 17, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Unicorn

    Well that’s something one doesn’t expect to see every day. The Nationals sprinted out to a 3-0 lead in the first game of today’s doubleheader against the Braves. Then Mike Minor settled down and didn’t allow another run through the sixth. The Braves scored runs in the sixth and seventh to bring it to 3-2.…

  22. Fun with comps: Evan Gattis is … Harmon Killebrew?

    Sep 9, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Harmon Killebrew

    This was at the end of Ken Rosenthal’s notes column. And it was obviously there for fun so let’s not pretend it’s some serious deal. But still: And finally, a scout offers this comp for Evan Gattis: Harmon Killebrew. I suppose there is something to be said about Gattis’ raw power compared to that of…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals 9, Pirates 2: And the sweep. Four losses in a row overall for Pittsburgh which is back in wild card territory, looking up at the Cards, still stuck on 81 wins.  Michael Wacha pitched seven shutout innings, allowing only two hits, and drove in two runs to boot.

    It’s cool and crisp here in America’s Heartland and there were some games last night that felt like the playoffs. Can we please just skip September and move straight on into October? Would anyone object to this? Red Sox 2, Tigers 1: An ALCS preview? Jon Lester outduels Max Scherzer in a tight game with…
