Scouting New Braves Prospect Travis Demeritte

The Atlanta Braves have turned one player they claimed off of waivers and another they signed to a minor-league deal into a prospect who appeared in this month’s Futures Game. Even if one is skeptical of that prospect, as I am, acquiring a tooled-up middle infielder for two pieces you acquired at next to no cost represents a success for the rebuilding Braves. The newly acquired...

Baseball is weird: Braves hitters through 100 games

If you like reading about singularly weird stats compiled by the hitters of the 2016 Braves, this may be your jam, as the kids say. You know what they say: in this world nothing can be said to be certain except death, taxes, and baseball being really weird, pretty much all the time. As of right now, the 2016 Braves are the worst team in baseball. But, like Tolstoy would have said...

The Braves are giving 20,000 hopeless fans 'worst-to-first rings' to get excited for 2017

The Atlanta Braves (33-66) have the worst record in baseball this season. They've been nearly unwatchable for 99 games, particularly at home.

That alone should give fans hope for next...

That all being said, this is sports, and at the core of this whole endeavor, there are fans, fans driven...

The Braves Should Be Motivated to Trade Julio Teheran

Let’s be clear about the reality of baseball trades. Despite all of the rumors and all of the posturing, every team has the same stance on just about every player: The player is available for trade, given a good-enough offer. That second part is where it gets complicated, because “good enough” can mean very different things. Not all teams value all players in the same way,...
