Moylan recalled?

Twitter status seems to suggest he's back. No word yet on corresponding moves... Varvaro or Avilan down, maybe?? -C

What would happen if a pitch were thrown at 90% light speed?

Stolen from BluebirdBanter. I really like the part at the end about rule 6.08(b).

Good Article about Craig Kimbrel

Not that any of you don't already know this stuff. But there are some pretty funny lines in there and it's always fun to read about the dominance of a Braves player, even if you already know how good he has been.

So this just goes a little more into detail about what exactly raised the ire of some Braves. I'm hoping someone with a heater takes it out on Milky. This reminds me of what he did during the All-Star game. Makes you wonder if he does this regularly or only against former teams/teammates...

Surprising Find About the Braves Pitching

Why FanShot this article when you could easily scroll down and find it? Because it proves two things, I sure, did not know about--1) Delgado and Jurrjens get over 20 more strike calls expected, good for 4th and 5th, respectively, in baseball. 2) the Braves and the Brewers, at 12.0, have the greatest difference in strike calls expected per 1000 pitches in baseball. That's 12.0 strike calls more than expected per 1000 pitches. The Braves pitchers have thrown over 13,000 pitches this year.

Good for him. This trade certainly feels like a win/win for both teams thus far.

Good stuff from John Sickels. I like how he reviews and reflects upon his prospect rankings.
