Well, I'm 25 years old, work for a consulting firm in Decatur, GA, and have been a die-hard Braves fan since about 1998. My first game was in June of '98 where I saw Roger Clemens and the Yankees face off against Greg Maddux and the Braves (the Braves won of course). I've been hooked since then.

Any Braves fans in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area?

Greetings fellow Braves fans, I'm going to be moving to the Twin Cities area soon after living in Atlanta (and being a Braves season ticket holder) since 2004. Anybody else live in the area who's...

Utility infielder, anyone?

Would essentially replace Brooks Conrad. Seems like we should take a flier, no?

Pitching IS the Trademark of Braves Organization

The money quote... "For me, the Braves are baseball’s most powerful organization."

Don't look now but...

The Cardinals just gave up 6 runs in the top of the 9th while leading 6-2 and got beat by the Mets 8-6. 2 games up with 6 to play. Go Braves!!!

My Question got answered on Fangraphs chat...

12:26 - Comment from Ace: Do you think the Braves' AAA rotation (Teheran, Minor, Delgado, Vizcaino, Redmond) is stronger than some MLB rotations? 12:27 - Dan Szymborski: I think the Braves AAA...

BAHAHAHA! Scott Proctor FAIL!

Just a thought about a RH bullpen option...

Anybody thought about something like this? Given our incredible starting pitching depth, wouldn't it be a decent idea to let Mike Minor move into the rotation and slide Beachy to the bullpen? I...

Baseball Prospectus' Kevin Goldstein on Braves pitching prospect Arodys Vizcaino:

10

Arodys Vizcaino, RHP, Braves Vizcaino threw a grand total of six pitches on Sunday, but after Moore and Cosart, he was the most impressive pitcher of the game, throwing 96-98 mph and freezing Will Myers on a low-80s curveball for his lone strikeout. Now a 20-year-old with 46 strikeouts in his first 43 2/3 Double-A innings, the hype train is starting to grow on Vizcaino, with one scout gushing, "Vizcaino's top two pitchers are better than Julio Teheran's top two. Don't be surprised in his timetable gets accelerated, as he could be getting big outs of the major-league bullpen come playoff time.

Nationals Claim LHP Lee Hyde from Braves

4

MLBTradeRumors reporting. Did they claim him off waivers, or are we getting somebody in return?

Scott Boras' company loaned money to prospects, including Braves' Salcedo

12

Anybody seen this article yet? Apparently Scott Boras' company loaned $70,000 to Edward Salcedo's family over 2007-2009 expecting to be paid back after his eventual future earnings. Will this affect Salcedo's standing within the Braves organization or eligibility to play overall?

Ryan Braun being shopped?

66

Milwaukee is desperate for pitching (which we've got a ton of) and we need a right handed power hitting left fielder. Get it done, Wren!

Greg Norton Named Braves Hitting Coach?

13

Anybody know if this is true? He was terrible in his last season with the Braves as a pinch hitter, but the year before that he was great. Not sure how I feel about this if it's true or not.

Clint Barmes??? Seriously??? No way is he the answer...

10

Ken Rosenthal thinks the Braves are interested in Clint Barmes of the Colorado Rockies to replace Chipper at the hot corner. He of the career .708 OPS (.672 this year)? That .243 batting average and .308 on-base % sure look yummy too. No Thanks!

Just a snippet of a comment I made that got picked up in the FanGraphs Prospect Chat this afternoon. Ace_of_Braves: What do you think about the Braves rotation in a few years?... Hanson, Jurrjens, Medlen, Teheran, Delgado, Vizcaino. Pretty stacked, right? Bryan Smith: I think it's a reason for a pretty insane amount of optimism.

On May 10, 2010, the Phillies were caught stealing signs against the Colorado Rockies. If you remember, Mick Billmeyer, their bullpen coach, was caught on camera using binoculars from the outfield while the Rockies were in the field. Their record before this occurrence was 20-12. Since May 10th, they are 27-35. Anybody think this has any bearing on their season to this point?

Is it just me, or does Freddie Freeman's swing (especially the way he rocks the bat back and forth before the pitch) look similar to Chipper's?

Braves built to last, Padres aren't

Nice little piece before the 3-game series this week against the NL West-leading Padres. This guy sounds like a Braves fan to me.

Frenchy's Numbers Tell the Tale

This article really sums up what we all know about Jeff Francoeur. Good guy, terrible baseball player. It's a fun read, especially knowing that the Muts have to deal with him now.

Could B.J. Upton be the right-handed bat we seek?

19

Anybody think that since we're looking for a right-handed outfield bat (Willingham, Bautista, Hart, etc.), we should consider B.J. Upton as well? Mark Bradley seems to think so. Thoughts?

Roy Oswalt wants out of Houston...

21

Apparently Roy Oswalt has asked the Astros to trade him. Anybody else think Atlanta would be one of his top choices? Think Frank Wren is interested?

Heyward's at-bat song?

I noticed on one of the blogs (Braves Love, to be exact), that some of the at-bat songs for opening day were being compiled. Some I'm familiar with, and some I'm not. I'm no expert on hip-hop/rap...

Heyward and Hinske

2

Nice article from the Fangraphs website about Eric Hinske's former status as a top prospect, and how he can help Jason Heyward.

Wagner Mateo a Brave?

23

Apparently the Braves are trying to make another splash on the international front in signing 16-year-old center fielder Wagner Mateo. This would be a HUGE boost to our minor league depth!

Hi everyone! This is my first post, so please forgive me if I end up posting somewhere I shouldn't....

Hi everyone! This is my first post, so please forgive me if I end up posting somewhere I shouldn't. I saw this video a few days ago and thought it was hysterical. It's sort of the Braves' version of "Love Your Love the Most" by Eric Church. Just wait for the line about the Mets... gets me every time. :-)
