Braves Potential Trade Targets: Looking for the Deadly Combo!

Braves Potential Trade Targets: Looking for the Deadly Combo!

Our Atlanta Braves are 26-16, should be 27-15 if @MLBReplays could get their head out of their…, and don’t look like they’re slowing down anytime soon.  This team is chock full of havoc wreakers, is exploding with fun and excitement, and sweats confidence. The MLB world can continue to overlook this start, to doubt that it’s real, and this young core will continue to bust rump everyday to prove them wrong. There aren’t many needs…

Bucking Braves Managerial Trends

Bucking Braves Managerial Trends

Don’t worry, I’ll get to the topic at hand, “Bucking Braves Managerial Trends”, but first…a rant. Braves Fans are PISSED and should be Last night was one of the most miserable and utterly unfair Braves losses I’ve ever encountered.  Fast forward to the bottom of the 5th inning, scored tied 1-1, 0 out, Johan Camargo leading off of 3rd, Culberson leading off of 1st, LHP Mike Montgomery toeing the rubber for the Cubs and Ozzie…

Transaction Tuesday: Gohara To The Bigs

Transaction Tuesday: Gohara To The Bigs

A pretty quiet week transaction-wise in the majors with one pitcher replacing another, but a lot of movement on the farm. I eluded to some of these moves in last week’s report because they were rumored, but not yet confirmed. We also have a few releases, an international free agent signing, and even some movement with the rookie league teams. We’re just a couple of weeks away from the Dominican Summer League’s season beginning and…

Can We Have An Ounce of Patience for Joey Bats?

Can We Have An Ounce of Patience for Joey Bats?

The Jose Bautista experiment hasn’t quite started with a bang. First, there was a sweep at the hands of the Giants. To some fans, Bautista was to blame because he “messed with team chemistry.” Shockingly, the “team chemistry” argument has more-or-less died off after Atlanta won their next three games. But Bautista, who has just three hits in 24 plate appearances, has not avoided criticism as the winning restarted. Yesterday evening, as the Braves crushed…

Transaction Tuesday: Seymour Released, Riley Rising

Transaction Tuesday: Seymour Released, Riley Rising

Busy week in transactions for the Braves and this report won’t include three other moves that are reported, but not yet confirmed. One is the rumored promotion of Luiz Gohara to the majors for today’s game. As if the Braves have been reading our blog, Gohara was scratched from a Triple-A start and the plan seems to be to bring up north where they Atlanta can utilize him out of the pen. The other two…

Can Gohara Make a Come Back?

Can Gohara Make a Come Back?

These young Braves make each game so exciting to watch. The anticipation of wondering what will happen next, wishing for a hit and it happening. Everyone is contributing and everyone is meshing so well together. The team chemistry is the best its been in years. This is not just a team, this is a family. After Mike Soroka’s amazing start and an incredible first week for Ronald Acuna Jr., there is new life infused into…

Let’s Talk About Nick Markakis

Let’s Talk About Nick Markakis

It’s May 4th, the Braves are in first place and Nick Markakis is leading the team in WAR. We’re just going to process that sentence for second before moving on. OK. Nick Markakis has been amazing this year. Like, legitimately amazing. He spent his age 31, 32, and 33 seasons being replacement level so this at age 34 is, well, kind of shocking. We are only 6 weeks in, so all the small sample qualifiers…
