First, I can understand why Cashman made that trade: The Yankees had better pitching prospects to protect than Banuelos. And, of course, River Ave quickly embraced the deal - almost too much, if I remember correctly.But it's looking like a bummer.Manny Banuelos is throwing a 2.65 ERA at Triple A for the Braves, and he's picking up steam. (He started the season terribly.) Carpenter...
LAWRENCEVILLE, GA – The Gwinnett Braves (22-26) shut out the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (19-30) 3-0 in the first game of their doubleheader Thursday at Coolray Field, but had to settle for a split of the twin bill when the IronPigs rallied late in the nightcap to beat them 6-4 in eight innings.
The G-Braves took three of the four games in the series, as they picked up two victories...

For some reason Chipper Jones got into a fight with @thatgrayboy over an alleged 17 years ago autograph snub. Busted Coverage claims dummy Jones for some reason followed Captain America or has 'Receive all Direct Messages' checked for some other reason so the 2 went to DMs. Before, at almost 2AM, he found the block button.
Love smack talkers! Meet today's class clown.....@thatgrayboy...
This is a story about childhood idols, the plight of a professional athlete, and human emotion.
The characters are Atlanta Braves legend (and frequent Twitter user!) Chipper Jones and a 25-year-old man with the Twitter handle @thatgrayboy who goes by "Captain America."
That's all the setup you need. Here goes:
So, friends, that's what we call a grudge.
The man who says Chipper...
Former Atlanta Braves slugger Chipper Jones is known to do some pretty dumb things on Twitter from time to time, and the argument he had with one of his followers early Thursday morning was no exception. Twitter user @thatgrayboy decided to call out Jones by claiming that Chipper snubbed him out of an autograph when...Read More
Goddammit, I can’t get enough of Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) on Twitter. This social media platform was made for this guy. He actually communicates with his followers. He’ll post photos of the ex-Playboy chick who will soon become his third wife. He’ll post hunting photos. He’ll give you a RT. He’ll also get into a DM war with a military vet and try to schedule an ass whoopin’...
LAWRENCEVILLE, GA – Gwinnett Braves’ catcher Wil Nieves delivered a three-run double with two outs in the penultimate inning of a seven-inning contest Wednesday to propel the G-Braves (21-25) to their second win of the day over the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (18-29) at Coolray Field.
Nieves knocked a pitch from Lehigh Valley left-handed starter Joely Rodriguez (L, 2-4) into the...
The Atlanta Braves on Wednesday released a rather cool virtual fly-over of their new-stadium-to-be SunTrust Park, showing most of what the new park’s infrastructure and adjacent mixed-community is going to look like when the park opens its door on Opening Day, 2017.
The Braves also on Wednesday started selling season tickets for the 2017 campaign at their new SunTrust Park Preview...
Juan Uribe moves to Atlanta and a whole lotta not much comes back to the Dodgers
The MLB released its first voting update for the 2015 All-Star game, which revealed that the Atlanta Braves aren't getting much support for the Midsummer Classic.
The only Braves player to finish in the top five in his position in the National League was veteran catcher A.J. Pierzynski, who ranks fourth among NL catchers with 347,094 votes.
Pierzynski hasn't made the All-Star team...
It took a little while to get here, with an unexpected obstacle or two, but we’ve got a six-player trade between the Braves and the Dodgers. The youngest player involved is 27, the average age of the players is about 31, and this year they’ve all combined to be worth -1.2 WAR. Sounds to me […]

When Vin Scully talks, we listen. During Monday night’s Braves-Dodgers game, Scully narrated a story about Braves outfielder Jonny Gomes…and how he was once attacked by a wolf as a child.
I’m more curious as to why a “hired hand” brought in by Gomes’s grandmother would bring a leashed wolf to a jobsite, but hey, I’m just being picky now.
During Monday's contest between the Braves and Dodgers, legendary broadcaster Vin Scully veered into David Attenborough territory for a story about the time a 12-year-old Jonny Gomes nearly became a wolf's lunch.
Scully also references Gomes' other rough life experiences, which include surviving a heart attack that lasted 24 hours before he sought treatment. By comparison, the...
Jonny Gomes is quite the character. So, too, is legendary broadcaster Vin Scully. Combine the two, and it’s only a matter of time before you get the most amazing story ever.
That’s exactly what happened Monday when the Atlanta Braves visited Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers. As Gomes came to bat for Atlanta in the fourth inning, Scully launched into a tale of truly epic proportions...

Not too often that an opposing starting pitcher comes through town that I’ve never heard of, so, hey, who are you, Williams Perez?
Through six innings, the Atlanta Braves and the Milwaukee Brewers were locked in at one run apiece, giving the look of another lackluster offensive performance by the bats of Atlanta. Out of nowhere the lucky number seven, which makes Craps players in Vegas millions of dollars, was also the lucky number for the Braves. It was not only the seventh inning, but they scored seven runs...
In this week’s fantastic Inside Baseball column by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, he revealed an interesting little nugget – the Atlanta Braves had asked the Milwaukee Brewers about catcher Jonathan Lucroy, but were rebuffed.
Atlanta inquired about the Brewers’ Jonathan Lucroy but were told he is unavailable
Lucroy, who turns 29 in June, is one of the best catchers in baseball...
During the offseason the Atlanta Braves have made a slew of trades, setting them up for a new future leading into their departure of Turner Field slated for the 2017 season. Despite unloading nearly half the roster, the Braves currently sit at third place in the NL East with an 18-19 record only four games behind the first place Mets with a lot of baseball left to play. With an...
