(Click on picture to animate) Some good, some bad, some ugly today in Orlando at ESPN's Wide World of Sports as the Phillies took on the Atlanta Braves. The game had plenty of offensive output and plenty of sloppy pitching and defense. The Braves had two touchdowns and a field...

Atlanta Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy is right on schedule according to manager Freddi Gonzalez. Beachy underwent Tommy John surgery last season but has pitched great thus far as he works his way back to the major leagues.
“He’s on target,” Gonzalez said. “He’s thrown some bullpens, he’s played some long catch and he hasn’t had any setbacks.”
The absence of Beachy...
Recently retired, Chipper Jones appears ready to make a foray into the world of broadcasting, starting with a weekly appearance on NBC Sports Radio.
With the Kingdom of the Netherlands out of the tournament, all the Braves will be back together again for tomorrow's game. The highlight of my day yesterday was seeing our shortstop called out as the star of the team in an MLB Network commercial for the game.
I love @mlbnetwork - they just reminded me to watch "@andrelton and the Netherlands" tonight at 9pm ET. THIS...

I've had this conversation with a few friends over the years, which Braves are men versus which ones are boys. It's just a silly thing and nothing is meant to be a slight against them, but some just seem more boyish and some are obviously grown ups.

In a barnburner of an exhibition game, the Phillies stuck nine runs to Kris Medlen in five innings but could never overcome the lead surrendered by Rodrigo Lopez and the Phils lost 17-10 in Orlando.
