  1. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Apr 13, 2013, 8:51 AM EDT

    Ramiro Pena Getty

    Last night featured round one of what should be a compelling NL East battle between the Braves and Nationals. While the Nationals had the early advantage behind an excellent effort from Ross Detwiler, the Braves came roaring back in the late innings for an eventual 6-4 win in 10 innings. After scoring one run in…

  2. It’s early, but the Braves-Nationals series is gonna be a good one

    Washington Nationals Kurt Suzuki waits on the ball as Atlanta Braves Jason Heyward slides in safe in the third inning at their MLB game in Atlanta

    We’re only nine games into the season, but this weekend we have what you might consider to be the first big series of the season: Braves vs. Nationals at Nats Park. Atlanta is 8-1, their best start since winning 13 of 14 to begin the 1994 season. It’s hard to get a true gauge on them…

  3. Duck! Ervin Santana picked up right where he left off

    Apr 3, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn

    Ervin Santana served up an AL-high 39 homers in 178 innings last season on the way to posting a 5.16 ERA that convinced the Angels to dump him on the Royals. Santana made his Royals debut today and allowed three homers in six innings, as Adam Dunn, Dayan Viciedo, and Tyler Flowers all took him…

  4. Tim Hudson’s eephus pitch may have had some history behind it

    Mar 22, 2013, 9:01 PM EDT

    Tim Hudson

    This morning, Aaron posted about Braves starter Tim Hudson throwing Nationals first baseman and former Brave Adam LaRoche an “eephus” pitch in the top of the second inning during this afternoon’s Grapefruit League exhibition. Bill Ladson reported on the hijinks between the two: “He is such a buddy of mine,” LaRoche said. “Another [time], he…

  5. Tim Hudson threw Adam LaRoche an eephus pitch

    Mar 22, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Tim Hudson AP

    In yesterday’s Nationals-Braves game Adam LaRoche came to the plate against his longtime friend and former teammate Tim Hudson and jokingly signaled for a knuckleball. Hudson figured why not and tossed a 47-mph pitch to the plate for a ball. “I didn’t think he would do it,” LaRoche told Bill Ladson of MLB.com afterward. “I…

  6. Braves name Tim Hudson as Opening Day starter

    Mar 21, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Tim Hudson Getty

    Atlanta announced that Tim Hudson will start on Opening Day for the first time since 2008, getting the nod over Kris Medlen. Derek Lowe started Opening Day for the Braves in 2009, 2010, and 2011, with Tommy Hanson getting the honors last season. Medlen was amazing after joining the rotation in late July, going 9-0…

  7. Craig Kimbrel had a hole-in-one at a charity golf tournament

    Feb 19, 2013, 2:42 PM EDT

    kimbrel getty

    Craig Kimbrel is the most dominant pitcher in baseball and he’s also apparently a pretty good golfer. Or at least good enough to sink a hole-in-one at the Chipper Jones/Tim Hudson charity tournament yesterday: Mark Bowman of MLB.com has the details: Kimbrel … used his four-iron to make quick work of the par-3 No. 2…

  8. Eye on 200 wins, Livan Hernandez intends to keep pitching

    Dec 23, 2012, 7:47 PM EDT

    Livan Hernandez

    Although he lost his fastball years ago and was unable to find a rotation spot last season, free agent Livan Hernandez wants to keep on pitching in 2013.

  9. The National League is poised to have some excellent rotations

    Dec 4, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez

    Even with Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez still up for grabs, the National League already seems set to sport some excellent rotations in 2013. How about this for the top four: Nationals: Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Dan Haren, Ross Detwiler Giants: Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong, Barry Zito Phillies: Roy…

  10. How about an Upton-Upton-Heyward outfield in Atlanta?

    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…

  11. Braves exercise options on Brian McCann, Tim Hudson, Paul Maholm

    Oct 30, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Hudson McCann

    Atlanta has exercised its options on catcher Brian McCann, right-hander Tim Hudson, and left-hander Paul Maholm, bringing all three players back for 2013 at a combined cost of $27.5 million. McCann faded badly in the second half and was benched in the Wild Card playoff game, but it would have been tough for the Braves…

  12. Tim Hudson was kinda glad to see Braves fans throw crap all over the field

    Oct 9, 2012, 3:32 PM EDT

    Cardinals Braves Baseball

    Tim Hudson was on the radio yesterday and talked about the blown infield fly rule call from Friday’s wild card game. Not surprisingly, he thought it was terrible. Somewhat surprisingly, he wasn’t too hard on Braves fans for chucking trash onto the field in the aftermath: I don’t blame the fans for doing what they…

  13. Ben Sheets to start Braves’ season finale and then retire

    Oct 2, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Ben Sheets Getty

    Tim Hudson was scheduled to start Atlanta’s season finale, but with the Wild Card spot locked up the Braves will rest him for the playoffs and instead turn to Ben Sheets for Game 162 against the Pirates. Sheets hasn’t pitched since August 24 because of a shoulder injury and told reporters that he’ll retire after…

  14. John Smoltz doesn’t know his Leo Durocher

    Sep 22, 2012, 12:20 PM EDT

    (FILES) This 25 August, 2002, file photo

    Braves fans are arguing among ourselves a little bit. Not a ton, but a little. The argument: should Kris Medlen start the one-game wild card playoff for which the Braves seem destined or should Tim Hudson.  I say “a little bit,” because almost everyone I talk to thinks it should be Medlen because the dude…

  15. If not for Bud, Braves would be World Series favorites

    Sep 21, 2012, 12:05 AM EDT

    Craig Kimbrel

    Who’s with me? The Nationals’ four projected starters are a combined 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA in the postseason, with that entire track record belonging to Edwin Jackson. They have one hitter in their lineup with a .350 OBP. They don’t have any big holes in their lineup, but they also don’t have anyone with…

  16. Baseball announces the Roberto Clemente Award nominees

    Sep 18, 2012, 12:30 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.” David Ortiz won it last year.  The 2012 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. One complaint first. It’s the same complaint I lodge every…

  17. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  18. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 111-81

    Sep 5, 2012, 3:02 PM EDT

    Ben Sheets

    It’s getting to be that time of year, so here is the first of two stabs at a Top 111 free agents list. The other will come shortly after the World Series concludes. Players are ranked based on how I believe teams perceive them, not how I view them myself. Essentially, I rank the players…

  19. Tim Hudson warns Tim Lincecum about relying too much on “sexy” strikeouts

    Aug 27, 2012, 8:52 AM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    Tim Hudson beat Tim Lincecum last night and after the game had some advice for the struggling Freak. After noting that Lincecum’s velocity seems to be fine, he observed that, like a young Tim Hudson, perhaps Lincecum just needs to be more aggressive in the strike zone, letting hitters put the ball in play more, sacrificing some…

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

    Aug 27, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    I looked at the schedule as I sat down to write this and noted that, even including the postponed game, there were only 14 games yesterday. Rays-A’s played Thursday-Saturday, leaving yesterday off to avoid conflicts with the Republican National Convention. Guess you couldn’t expect the RNC to compromise, so … Anyway, it was weird and…

    Yankees Kuroda pitches to Rangers in MLB game in New York

    It was shutout Tuesday, apparently. Let’s tally the goose eggs: Yankees 3, Rangers 0: Hiroki Kuroda with the two-hit shutout. He was masterful, but man, there were a lot of ill-advised Texas swings in the parts of this one I watched. Either Kuroda had them more fooled than someone on the foolingest day of his life…

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

    Aug 9, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Jose Reyes

    Marlins 13, Mets 0: Well, that one got out of hand. Chris Young was beaten like a red headed stepchild (can we still say that?), allowing two homers and four RBI to Giancarlo Stanton and a mess of runs to everyone else. Jose Reyes extends his hitting streak to 26 games. Giants 15, Cardinals 0:…

  23. Braves beat Halladay, finish sweep of Phillies

    Jul 29, 2012, 5:08 PM EDT

    Chipper Jones

    So much for that big Phillies surge. Jason Heyward and Chipper Jones homered off Roy Halladay on Sunday as the Braves beat the Phillies 6-2 to complete a big three-game sweep. The Braves won their fifth straight behind Tim Hudson, who moved to 10-4 in the year. Apart from his Tommy John surgery year in…

  24. Matt Harvey strikes out 11 in major league debut

    Jul 27, 2012, 12:07 AM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    The Mets weren’t entirely sure Matt Harvey was ready, but the 2010 first-round pick sure looked the part in his debut Thursday against the Diamondbacks. While pitching 5 1/3 scoreless innings, Harvey became just the 13th pitcher in major league history to strike out at least 11 batters in his debut. He allowed three hits…

    Actor Sherman Hemsley dies at age 74 portrayed George Jefferson

    Holy moley, an awful lot of big news happened overnight. Ramirez a Dodger? Cole Hamels almost remaining with Philly? There were even some games! Athletics 7, Blue Jays 2: The A’s are streaking. That’s six in a row. Derek Norris hit a two-run homer and Yoenis Cespedes drove in three with a single. The A’s success at…
