Kimbrel was lugging five large boxes around the clubhouse before the game. They contained a bunch of goodies he ordered for his teammates from the All-Star game. His fellow relievers got All-Star gnomes, while everyone else received a gray T-shirt. Kimbrel also ordered something for himself: a baseball covered in 24-carat gold.

Odd bit from today's game notes Completely irrelevant, but I thought it was interesting. I wonder what a ball covered in gold looks like.

After last nights game, and frankly watching Medlen my mind is boggled. So serious questions for you all. What will be our starting rotation next year? We have a crazy amount of starting pitching. Lets take a look Hudson Hanson Medlen Beachy(at some point late next year) Delgado Teheran Malholm Minor Gilmartin(pry not right off the bat, but kid has looked decent in AAA) So thats 9 capable starting pitchers, 7 of which could all be ready by the start of the season. I dont even know where to start with this rotation. I would guess Hudson is the only lock out of the 9(Beachy would be too but he is hurt). I think we have a really good chance to solidfy the rotation for years to come and make a big move in a trade. We basically have 4 guys we could offer a team for a big name player. I dont know who it would be or anything, but I dont see any reason for us not to make a big move. Thoughts???

Braves recall catcher J.C. Boscan from Gwinnett.

The Gwinnett game notes have catcher J.C. Boscan being transferred to Atlanta today. Likely taking Andrelton Simmons' spot, leaving Jack Wilson as the lone shortstop... for now. It was mentioned on Twitter that Brian McCann's wife is expecting, and he may miss a few days because of that.
