July 13th, 2014 is 13 hours old on the East Coast, and yet in those 13 hours we've had a bit of a minor shake-up: Phil Gosselin is on the active 25-man roster and will be available off the bench...

Game Thread 6/25: Braves at Astros

Yup, Fredi's at it again. McHugh has been a whipping boy the last two years, but has performed well as a regular starter this year. Robbie Grossman was optioned to the minors, and L.J. Hoes...


Game Thread 6/24: Braves at Astros

Fredi be trollin'. B.J. has hit .178 in the leadoff spot for the Braves. As bad as he's been, what makes anyone think that's going to change? Either Fred's trolling us, or B.J. must have some...


Game Thread 6/21: Braves At Nationals

Last night was a long one, as it lasted about 4 and a half hours and a little bit longer than it should have thanks to Craig Kimbrel's blown save. Even with the botched ending, it still ended like...

Game Thread 6/13: Braves vs. Angels

Hopefully some home cookin' will fix what's ailing the Braves and Aaron Harang, against whom some of the Angels hitters have some very good numbers. C.J. Wilson and his hair will pitch for the...
