  1. The Braves wouldn’t catch Chipper Jones’ ceremonial first pitch because he didn’t pick them to win

    Oct 8, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Chipper Jones first pitch

    They’re still my team, but boy oh boy were the 2013 Braves a joyless and unfun bunch. On the heels of the “policeman of the unwritten rules” stuff last month comes this from the New York Post. Seems that the reason Chipper Jones ceremonial first pitch last week was thrown out to the Braves mascot…

  2. The Roberto Clemente Award Nominees have been announced

    Sep 16, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Clemente

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” Clayton Kershaw won it last year.  The 2013 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. And now my annual complaint, albeit a minor one: Baseball has set…

  3. Brandon Beachy’s season is over

    Sep 12, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Brandon Beachy

    All of us who are convinced that Matt Harvey should go get Tommy John surgery yesterday should probably remind ourselves that it’s not ALWAYS a routine thing. Take Brandon Beachy who hasn’t been able to get right this year: Beachy said today he’s not where he wants to be. Had played some catch earlier this…

  4. Report: Braves claimed Kyle Lohse earlier this month

    Aug 24, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Kyle Lohse

    It’s old news that right-hander Kyle Lohse was claimed on waivers and then pulled back without a trade, but it wasn’t known who tried to pluck him away from the Brewers. FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal revealed today that it was the Braves who made the claim. Lohse would have been pretty much the perfect replacement for…

  5. Braves acquire Freddy Garcia from Orioles

    Aug 23, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Freddy Garcia

    In need some of some rotation depth with Tim Hudson out for the season and Brandon Beachy possibly joining him on the disabled list, the Braves have acquired veteran right-hander Freddy Garcia from the Orioles for cash considerations. Garcia got knocked around for a 5.77 ERA in 53 innings for the Orioles before accepting a…

    Tim Hudson Getty

    Tim Hudson‘s  ankle injury was horrific, but the Braves starter’s healing is going just fine. He went on MLB Network Radio today and said that he’s going to be ready for spring training next season and that “we’re looking at being totally healed from this thing at the end of November or beginning of December.” Where…

  7. The Braves, winners of ten straight, have opened up a 12.5 game lead in the NL East

    Aug 5, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Philadelphia Phillies

    Braves youngster Alex Wood gave up one run over six innings in his start on Sunday night against the Phillies — a start in which Delmon Young struck out four times, seeing a total of 15 pitches — to help the Braves to another win. It was their tenth in a row. Meanwhile, the Phillies…

  8. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2013, 5:50 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Given how disappointing this afternoon’s trade deadline proved to be, it’s only fair that the annual winners and losers column is a little lopsided. Let’s get right to it: Winners Red Sox: I didn’t like the idea of Boston giving up top prospects for Jake Peavy because I just didn’t see him being a big…

  9. Brandon Beachy will make 2013 debut on Monday

    Jul 27, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

    Braves starter Brandon Beachy, fully recovered from Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, will make his first start of the 2013 season on Monday against the Rockies, reports David O’Brien.

  11. Braves are eyeing Bud Norris

    Jul 26, 2013, 9:43 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Houston Astros

    While I feel like the Braves might be OK without Tim Hudson it’s not my money I’m gambling with. It’s the Braves’ and they seem to feel like they need some starting pitching depth. To that end: Sources: #Braves among teams actively pursuing #Astros starter Bud Norris. @FOXSportsLive — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) July 26, 2013…

  12. Are the Braves OK without Tim Hudson?

    Jul 25, 2013, 11:32 AM EDT

    Braves logo-thumb-113x101-1733

    Tim Hudson was, quite obviously, placed on the disabled list this morning. Paul Maholm is getting DL’d too. With their two eldest starting pitchers going down, do the Braves need some rotation help? Not necessarily. Brandon Beachy is done with his rehab assignment and is coming back, so he’ll fill a slot. Alex Wood, who…

  13. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 25, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays' Price pitches against Boston Red Sox  during MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

    Jul 24, 2013, 10:04 PM EDT

    tim hudson getty

    Braves right-hander Tim Hudson had to be carted off the field Wednesday night at New York’s Citi Field after suffering a major right ankle injury in the eighth inning of his start against the Mets.

  15. Some Braves players think the All-Star voting process is unfair

    Jul 8, 2013, 1:31 PM EDT

    Yasiel Puig

    Only one Braves player made the All-Star team and that was because the manager put him on there. As far as fan voting goes? They didn’t do so good. Dave O’Brien of the AJC talked to a bunch of them yesterday and many voiced their displeasure at fan voting. Both in the main selection process…

  16. Phillies place Ryan Howard on DL, recall Darin Ruf

    Jul 6, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Ryan Howard Getty

    Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard, dealing with an ailing knee for quite some time, has at long last been placed on the disabled list. To fill his vacant space on the 25-man roster, the Phillies have recalled Darin Ruf from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Both pieces of news come via Matt Gelb on Twitter. Ruf is…

  17. Brandon Beachy will not start on Tuesday, after all

    Jun 14, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    Brandon Beachy Getty

    The Braves had been internally debating for a while what to do when Brandon Beachy is activated from the disabled list. Would they use the 26-man rule to use him for Tuesday’s double-header against the Mets, and then figure it out in a week? Would they move Kris Medlen to the bullpen? Or attempt to…

  18. Braves face tough decision when Brandon Beachy returns

    Jun 9, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    brandon beachy ap

    Brandon Beachy hasn’t pitched since June 16 last season. He felt soreness in his right elbow and subsequently underwent Tommy John surgery, ending his season and significantly cutting into his 2013 hopes. Nearly a full year later, though, Beachy is nearing a return. He has made two rehab starts with Triple-A Gwinnett spanning nine innings,…

  19. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 3, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Domonic Brown

    Phillies 7, Brewers 5: Dom Brown homered and tripled and drove in four while Cliff Lee struck out 11 in seven and two-thirds. Philly is only one game behind the Nats right now, you guys. Why? Because … Braves 6, Nationals 3: … the Nats dropped two of three to Atlanta, with B.J. Upton of…

  20. Cole Hamels is 1-8

    May 26, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels

    Phillies starter Cole Hamels lost his eighth game this afternoon as he was vastly out-dueled by Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg in the Nats’ 6-1 victory. Hamels allowed five runs (three earned) in 6.1 innings, striking out six and walking one as his ERA was actually lowered to 4.43. The first two months for Hamels have…

  21. Tim Hudson donated $1 million to Auburn baseball program

    May 14, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    tim hudson auburn

    Many college baseball programs depend on former players who’ve gone on to do well financially to help them stay afloat as other sports get more attention and funding. Here in Minnesota, for instance, Twins reliever Glen Perkins donated $125,000 to help get the Gophers a new field after their old one basically fell apart. Tim…

    We’re smack dab in the middle of the first ten days-to-two week period of beautiful weather in Ohio. It’s low 70s, low humidity, sunshine and nice breezes. Everything is in bloom and the land is green and lush.  This will be mirrored by the ten days-to-two week period in the fall in which the air will…

  23. Tim Hudson has really added some tools to his arsenal

    May 3, 2013, 10:55 PM EDT

    If you’ve been following baseball news over the past few days, you know Clay Buchholz is in the crosshairs for allegedly doctoring baseballs. Cliff Lee was even accused of putting illegal substances on his hat. Now, it looks like, Tim Hudson is the latest to be embroiled in controversy. From Kris Medlen’s Twitter: .@intentionaltalk Huddy…

According to Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com, Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth are back in the starting lineup. Harper will bat third while Werth will hit cleanup against right-hander Kris Medlen.

  25. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    May 1, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 8, Nationals 1: That’s nine straight wins by the Braves over the Nats dating back to last season. Someone should ask Danny Espinosa if he’s impressed by the Braves yet. Tim Hudson notched his 200th career win. In pretty grand style, too: he homered and doubled in addition to pitching seven strong innings. Indians…
