Jordan Schafer got first base - the first base he touched in Philadelphia on his first major league homer - sent to him by the Phillies. He was pretty excited about that. Cool gesture by the Phillies. Jordan knows Charlie Manuel because they both live in the Winter Haven, Fla. area, but he’s not sure if Manuel was behind it or who. But pretty classy.

When Greg Maddux left Atlanta for the Chicago Cubs five years ago, the Braves didn’t get the chance to give him a proper send-off. Now that he’s retired, they will do it up big. The Braves will retire Maddux’s No. 31 and induct him into the Braves Hall of Fame on July 17 before a game against the Mets.

This photo comes in hot off the AP Photo Wire. According to the AP, Coach Sherry Haithcock was at a National Softball Association meeting in Kansas City, Missouri, where she met with dozens of fans and participated in voluntary photo ops. Reports indicate that Haithcock was incredibly friendly, in good spirits, and excited about her role with the Atlanta Braves this season. She then signed baseballs and other memorabilia for about fifty fans who had gathered in an adjacent hallway.

Now I’m hearing from someone I consider reliable that the Braves might already have a deal in place for Garret Anderson. I’m trying to confirm. Just want to be clear — MIGHT HAVE A DEAL DONE — not saying they definitely do. That’s what I’m hearing, however, that it might already be in place.

Don Sutton returns to Atlanta

Javier Vazquez has some of the nastiest stuff in the big leagues yet hasn't really ever emerged as a consistent front line starter. Why can't Vazquez translate that immense talent into results?

Braves made [their offer] on Friday. Not sure what it was, but do know it’s almost certainly gonna have to be increased. However, when I asked Boras about it tonight he didn’t act dismissive or indicate at all that it was way below his expectations, anything like that. ...I’m also guessing the average annual value is probably going to have to be $15 mill or so in at least a three-plus-an-option deal, if not a four-year deal.
