FORT MYERS — A day after we learned of the stink the Marlins are raising about the Red Sox not bringing a sufficient number of major leaguers on their long road trip to Jupiter, the Braves are traveling here to Fort Myers to face Boston. Here’s who is making the trip: #Braves travel roster for…

LAKE BUENA VISTA — I’ve done a good job so far today not cheering in the press box. Kris Medlen struck a dude out looking. Evan Gattis just thew out a would-be base stealer. Both of those things are usually worth at least a fist-pump from me when watching a game but I’ve been totally…

I’m not a big fan of the Ryan Doumit trade, but at least it’s good for the yuks: Wren said he viewed Doumit as the best player available to fill his bench need because “he’s almost two players in one.” — Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) December 18, 2013 True! He is almost two players. Almost…
