Braves News:

Braves Lose Close One To Marlins

With this loss on Thursday, Atlanta dropped a four-game series to the pesky Marlins, snagging only one win. In the fourth and final game of the series, the game came into the ninth inning tied at two. Aaron Harang went seven strong innings for the club, and Chris Johnson batted in the teams only two runs with a homer. All it took was a couple of wild pitches from the All-Star Kimbrel to allow Jarrod Saltamalacchia to score Ozuna from second to take the lead.

Best and Worst Trades In Braves History

With the trade deadline just days away, it seems like trades are on everybody's mind. Joel Reuter of Bleacher Report decided to look back at the history of each team's trades, and picked out the best and worst for them. I don't want to spoil anything for you, so check out the Braves page for yourself. It's hard to argue with the picks, but are there any other trades you think deserved to be there? Let us know.

Looking for Relief: Tony Sipp

The Braves have made it clear that they would like to acquire a left-hander for their bullpen, after scouting the Cubs pen and expressing interest in Boston's Andrew Miller. According to Jon Morosi, Tony Sipp of Houston could be the next one up on Atlanta's radar. The 31-year-old is 2-1 with a 2.45 ERA on the season.

MLB News:

Ryan Howard Potentially on the Move?

Once a superstar, now being thrown around in trade talks. The years have not been kind to Ryan Howard. Philadelphia wants him gone, bad. But Philly would need to eat most of his $70 million dollar contract for any team to express any interest in the 34-year-old, who's hitting just .224 on the year with a .682 OPS.
