    Dec 6, 2012, 8:26 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Maybe it’s the lack of sleep I’ve gotten this week, but CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman seems to be implying that free agent right-hander Kevin Correia is a pretty popular guy right now. ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reported earlier today that the Royals are considering Correia along with Brett Myers and Jair Jurrjens, but the Twins and…

    Jair Jurrjens was a popular trade target exactly one year ago, but now he’s days away from hitting the free agent market.

    Sep 4, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    Jair Jurrjens

    Jair Jurrjens has spent the past month “rehabbing” a groin injury at Triple-A, but it was always a rehab assignment/demotion and the Braves announced today that they won’t be calling him up at any point this month. It’s been one hell of a fall for Jurrjens, who made the All-Star team last season and basically…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 5, Cubs 0: A rejuvenated A.J. Burnett came into a Wrigley Field with the wind blowing in from center against a Cubs team hours off of a significant selloff and tossed a one-hitter. Oh, and Neil Walker drove in all five Pirates runs. Rays 8, Athletics 0: James Shields pitched a very relieved “oh…

    May 17, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    jurrjens

    Last week manager Fredi Gonzalez revealed that the Braves hadn’t even given any thought to recalling Jair Jurrjens from Triple-A, saying: “Without making this sound cruel, he’s a minor league player right now.” At the time Jurrjens had put together three straight impressive outings, but that all unraveled last night as he got rocked for…

    May 8, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Jair Jurrjens

    The Question

    Q: What would you do if you joined the BBWAA for 10 years? Vote for Jay Bell and Bill Mueller for the Hall of Fame? Act petulantly and intellectually dishonest while appealing to authority if and when I was called out for my irrationality?  Anything I wanted to, really. Q: Should sports reporters/analysts be able to…

  20. The Braves demote Jair Jurrjens to Triple-A

    Apr 24, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Shoulda sold high. The Braves demoted Jair Jurrjens to Triple-A Gwinnett last night after he gave up five runs on nine hits in three innings to the Dodgers. It was the worst in a series of bad starts to kick off the season for Jurrjens, who now stands with a 9.37 ERA and has given…

  21. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 24, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Texas Rangers

    Yankees 7, Rangers 4: The platonic ideal of a late-dynasty Yankees game: Four hits for Jeter, homer for A-Rod, a CC Sabathia win and a Mariano Rivera save.  In other news, I sorta feel like I wanna be the guy who starts writing the breathless “can Derek Jeter hit .400?” articles. Maybe I’ll do one…

    Apr 19, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v New York Yankees

    Twins 6, Yankees 5: Justin Morneau hit two homers. That’s four homers in six games, which hopefully means that Morneau is back to his mashing ways. Jason Marquis, who missed most of spring training when his daughter was seriously injured in a bicycle accident, made his first ever start in Yankee Stadium and got the…

  25. Re-run: why I rip guys like T.J. Simers rather than ignore them

    Mar 20, 2012, 2:31 PM EDT

    megaphone

    I’m watching the Braves-Tigers game. Jair Jurrjens looks awful. Then he threw a first pitch fastball down the middle to Delmon Young, who hit an RBI single.  Anyone who pays attention knows that Delmon Young swings at the first pitch. All the damn time. Jurrjens should probably have his pitching license taken away. Bah. OK, the…
