    Chipper Jones

    In October, when the Braves were about to face the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLDS, Chipper Jones was scheduled to throw out the first pitch. However, because he was rather objective about his former team’s chances — he went on the radio and said that the Dodgers would win in four games, which…

    With a respectful nod to Ken Rosenthal, our own Bill Baer and the players who have taken to Twitter in the past couple of days to talk about Jhonny Peralta, may I ask why everyone seems to think that Peralta’s new contract represents some sort of problem with the drug penalty system in baseball and…

    Nov 12, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Atlanta Braves

    Tim Hudson is one of the few free agents I can remember who actually signed with a team near where he grew up, so it’s probably not smart to totally dismiss the idea of him wanting to stay in Atlanta. But the dude was young and rich in the Bay Area once upon a time…

    When you start Freddy Garcia in an elimination game, yeah, you might be interested in bringing back a starter you’ve had around for nine years and with whom you’re quite comfortable: Frank Wren has provided strong indication he would like Tim Hudson back in the #Braves rotation next year. — Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) October 14,…

    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…

  20. 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…

    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…
