Rookie SS Andrelton Simmons is expected to return to the Braves on Monday for the first time in two months after breaking a bone in his right hand on July 8. Hes been playing on a minor league rehab assignment, spending time with Lynchburg in the Carolina League playoffs. He hit home runs on both Fr...
BEST OF MAXIM
The media is very careful of the questions they ask players, and the players are very careful in the way they answer. We get a lot of clichés, and I don’t love that. During interviews I always think about the million questions I want to ask the boys, and maybe one day I’ll be able to...and get real answers, not clichés.
Here are just a few...

The Atlanta Braves started the season with a five man rotation that could be down to one original member once Ben Sheets comes off the disabled list. It would really be two since Tim Hudson was technically part of the rotation even though he missed the first week or two recovering from an injury. What interests me, is how the Braves had a reasonably strong rotation with Tommy Hanson...
Heating up? Dan Uggla was 6-for-11 w/ a HR & 2 doubles in NY
With offense coming from sources that have been unusually quiet all season–Brian McCann and Dan Uggla–the Braves swept the Mets in Chipper Jones’ final trip to the Big Apple. Accomplishing the sweep mostly on the backs of phenomenal pitching, for the Braves, it felt like old times.
Friday night, with Maholm on...
Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones is out of the starting lineup for his last game in New York against the Mets, a bittersweet finish against the team he has tormented throughout his 19 seasons in the major leagues.
Jones says he told manager Fredi Gonzalez on Saturday night that he needed the day off but now says he's feeling better.
Jones says he'll ''...
Figures the Braves would provide a storybook ending to Larry Jones' career in New York. And it figures that Larry would only be gracious to a point:
Enjoyed my last experience in the NYC. Thx to the Mets org and the fans for rolling out the red carpet. Sweeps r extra sweet in New york!!

Brian McCann and Dan Uggla struggled through August, putting a giant hole in the middle of the Braves lineup. Yesterday in Flushing against the Mets, the two rebounded in an amazing way. With Kris Medlen on the mound, Atlanta smashed New York 11-3. Uggla reached base five times, while McCann reached four times. The two combined for seven runs scored and four RBI in the Braves...
Kris Medlen extended Atlanta's scoreless streak to 31 innings for its best string in more than 20 years, slumping Brian McCann drove in four runs with four hits and the Braves beat the New York Mets 11-3 on a stormy Saturday.
A tornado touched down in Queens about 15 miles away several hours before the game. When the grounds crew struggled to control the billowing tarp before...
As the Milwaukee Brewers were making a run toward the National League Wild Card in 2008, Ben Sheets was on the verge of breaking down. Again. This time it would be worse than the others. To that point, Sheets had pitched eight seasons and had struggled with injuries throughout most of them. He had back problems and an inner ear problem. He missed starts and he struggled...
By Dave Buscema, The Sports Xchange NEW YORK -- The Braves followed a familiar formula Saturday, getting another strong pitching performance from Kris Medlen, but this time Atlanta added a little more offense than it had produced recently. With help from a career high-tying four hits, a homer and four RBI from Brian McCann, the Braves produced an 11-3 win in a game delayed by...
The Atlanta Braves' pitchers have led the way during a five-game win streak but they might get a stiff challenge from the surging Milwaukee Brewers' lineup.
There's a chance, though, that the Brewers might not have Ryan Braun or Corey Hart available when they try to snap a seven-game skid to the Braves on Monday night.
Atlanta (81-60) has posted a 0.98 ERA over its...
