Brothers B.J. and Justin Upton collide in a June 18 game at Turner Field
Writers note: Just as I was about to click "publish" on this column, Chris Johnson belts a 3-run homer off of Mets pitcher Shaun Marcum. So, there's that.
In a number of recent seasons, the month of June has not been kind to the Atlanta Braves. In fact, since 2004, the Braves have only had a winning record in June four
BEST OF MAXIM
UPTON HERE, UPTON THERE
Aside from a hot April where Justin Upton hit .298 with 12 home runs, the Upton brothers have been hot garbage in Hotlanta this season, their first with the Braves. Justin has seen his average plummet to .247 overall and he has only hit three home runs since April 27. Brother B.J. has been worse, much much worse. Through 206 at bats, B.J. is hitting an awful .165 with eight home...
Tweet When brothers B.J. and Justin Upton were united on the Atlanta Braves during the offseason many fans had visions like this for what was to come in 2013. Unfortunately, everything isn’t always so perfect as was the case Tuesday against the New York Mets. Thankfully, neither appeared to be hurt on the play. [...]
Atlanta Braves outfielders B.J. and Justin Upton violently collided going after a fly ball. Afterwards, it was bro shoves all around.
ATLANTA -- For Jason Hursh, it was a whirlwind of a day.
The Braves' top draft pick out of Oklahoma State flew into Atlanta on Wednesday morning. He signed his contract, and after getting a first-hand look at Turner Field and the current Braves -- he said he took his picture with outfielder Justin Upton -- will report to Single-A Rome on Thursday.
"They don't waste...
What is to become of Shaun Marcum? The true question is how much of a leash do you give him? He is likely around at this point as trade bait. But can that be allowed to stand if he pitches poorly?
Firstly, we should ignore the win/loss record. Anyone who listens to our corresponding show, “Around Citi Live” will know that wins are a circumstantial stat at best, and do...
There was a little brotherly miscommunication in left centre field as the Upton brothers converged on a routine fly ball. It would have been funnier if after colliding, B.J. put Justin in a headlock and gave him a mad noogie to the head.
The post Brotherly Miscomunication: The Upton Brothers Collide appeared first on Baseball Hot Corner.
Seriously now, these are the New York Mets. Did anybody really expect the euphoria of Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler to include Shaun Marcum?
Marcum is now 0-9 after Wednesday night and it seems ludicrous to keep him in the rotation, especially when Dillon Gee and Jeremy Hefner have pitched well.

The Mets lost in Atlanta by a score of 5-3 tonight at Turner Field, evening the 5-game series at two games apiece heading into tomorrow’s rubber match. Shaun Marcum pitched for the Mets and battled through the first few innings before being burned by a 3-run home run off the bat of Chris Johnson.
Freshly acquired Eric Young led off the game with a single for New York, but the Mets...
In 1962 it was Bob Miller, in ’93 it was Anthony Young, and now in 2013 there is Shaun Marcum. With last night’s unsightly loss to the Braves, Marcum now holds the third worst record to start a season in franchise history at 0-9. Granted that he hasn’t exactly had a great deal of run support behind him, the 31-year old hasn’t held up his end of the bargain all season long...
It’s Marcum’s turn to frustrate the Braves. Mets SP in this series have pitched 21.1 IP and allowed just 5 ER. With a different manager, it could easily have been 21 IP and 0 ER. Game time is 7:10 PM.

The plan was that one of Shaun Marcum or Jeremy Hefner would be the one to leave the rotation. But that was before Jon Niese's tendonitis flared up again like it was a bout of hemorrhoids. His performance over the first three and a third innings was your first clue that something was wrong as he...
Medlen pitched seven strong innings Wednesday night against the Mets
