There’s Something Weird Happening with the Braves

There’s Something Weird Happening with the Braves

The Braves are in a good spot. A 6.5 game lead with 13 games to play is just about as good as anyone could’ve reasonably hoped for or expected back in March. What looked to be a difficult division back in the spring has turned into one of the easier divisions in baseball. Washington and Philadelphia have both fallen off considerably while the Mets crashed and burned a while ago. When you combine those things…

2018 Exit Interviews – Luiz Gohara

2018 Exit Interviews – Luiz Gohara

(Our exit interview series looks at how players performed in 2018 along with a preview of their future.) Luiz Gohara 19.2 innings, 5.95 ERA, 4.53 FIP, 22.0% K-rate, 9.8% BB-rate, 0.0 fWAR 2018: Gohara was often discussed as a possible Rookie of the year candidate entering the season, but an array of problems led to just 77.2 innings when you add in his work in the minors.

Acuña Jr. or Soto for Rookie of the Year?

Acuña Jr. or Soto for Rookie of the Year?

Despite this being a Braves blog, I – with no hesitation – must say I love Juan Soto. The fact that, in his first game of the year back in April, Soto was facing the Rome Braves is astounding. He hit a homer off Kyle Muller, who ranked #13 on the Walk-Off Walk Midseason Top 50 Prospects. In his final at-bat that day, lefty Thomas Burrows (#34th) struck him out. Just over a month after…

Atlanta Braves Playoff Roster

I don’t believe in curses. I’ll say it again. I don’t believe in superstitious, silly, stupid, bloody curses. So if you do and you think that I’m cursing our team merely for talking about my take for the Atlanta Braves playoff roster, don’t read this. In fact, if you, by happenstance, find that you’ve clumsily clicked and opened this article on your device, and you’re superstitious, burn your device, bury it, dig it up in…

Boring Atlanta Braves Wins

Boring Atlanta Braves Wins

Over their last 10 games, the Atlanta Braves have went 6-4… ..but dear sweet lord, it was downright brutal at times! Need a reminder? It was anything but easy or pretty but winning 6 of 10 is essentially what this team has been doing all season long. Quick recap of the madness:   September 1st, costly error from Charlie Culberson allows 2 unearned runs to score in 6th, Braves score 4 in 8th to preserve…

Red Sox Series Proves Whether or Not the Braves are Postseason Ready

Red Sox Series Proves Whether or Not the Braves are Postseason Ready

Somehow, by God’s good graces, after being swept by the Red Sox the Braves obtained a 3 game lead over the Phillies in the NL East. The question on everyone’s mind right now is, are the Braves ready to take on the postseason? I think there is a high chance they do make it, but they do not make it far. Why? Well, the Red Sox series said everything about the type of team the…

Best H’s in Braves Franchise History

Best H’s in Braves Franchise History

After the struggles of yesterday, let’s go with a palate cleanser and bring back this fun series. When you have operated a squad for nearly 150 years, you rack up a pretty expansive collection of players that have taken the field for you. In this series, we look at possibly the best possible lineup you could build that all share one thing in common – the last name that begins with the same letter. Team…
