    In the seventh inning of Monday’s Brewers-Braves game, Marco Estrada had a curveball get away from him, hitting Paul Janish squarely in the knee. It was as about as run-of-the-mill as HBPs get, at least until Angel Hernandez called Janish back to box, ruling the pitch a ball. The video isn’t embeddable yet, but here’s…

    The Braves announced that they have claimed infielder Elliot Johnson off release waivers from the Royals. Dan Uggla goes out for eye surgery, Tyler Pastornicky goes down with a torn ACL.

    Bad luck for Braves infielder Tyler Pastornicky.

    A live bat — barely live from the looks of it — landed on the infield grass at Turner Field last night.  Braves infielder Paul Janish fielded it cleanly, then bobbled it, then made a clean exchange to the batboy for the out. The BATboy. Get it? Ha! Er, yeah.

    Nov 25, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Justin Upton

    We know the Braves are in hot pursuit of free agent B.J. Upton, who could well be the next top free agent to sign. It makes one wonder if they’d considering pairing the Upton brothers and bringing in Justin from Arizona. On the surface, it seems like a great idea. Neither Upton brother has quite…

    Bryce Harper

    One can’t help but wonder just how late Drew Storen and Tyler Clippard were out last night. Down 9-0 after five innings, the Braves rallied to beat the Nationals 11-10 in 11 innings Friday and cut Washington’s NL East lead down to 2 1/2 games.
