BEST OF MAXIM
Brian McCann is still one of the best catchers in the game
Evan Gattis may be getting the lion’s share of the Atlanta Braves media attention, but veteran backstop Brian McCann is showing that he is still one of the best hitting catchers in the game.
Gattis had another stellar game when the Braves played against the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday afternoon. He blasted his twelfth home...
Despite a bizarre weather-induced suspension in the 8th inning of game 1, the Braves were able to play the remainder of game 1 prior to game 2 and won both. The Braves took another series, this one within the division, before heading north to face off against the AL Toronto Blue Jays.
Somewhat lost in the absurdity of suspending the game in the 8th after the Braves ‘pen...
ATLANTA Barring one bad start against a hot Detroit Tigers offense, Mike Minor has been unrelenting this season consistent from start No. 1 to his last outing against the Mets in New York. He leads all Braves starters in wins above replacement (WAR, 1.2), strikeout-to-walk ratio and nearly every other statistical category one could think of.
With a 6-2 record, he's not only...
Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow left Tuesday's game against Atlanta after just two innings with soreness in his forearm.
Right-hander Ramon Ortiz replaced Morrow, who allowed four runs, two earned, and four hits, including a home run. He walked none and struck out two. Of his 47 pitches, just three were above 90 mph.
A Blue Jays spokesman said the injury was not considered...
Has B.J. Upton been benched?
For the second game in a row and third in the past four, Braves center fielder B.J. Upton didn’t start. According to a report by AJC beat writer, Dave O’Brien, Upton is sitting out to work on his swing.
Saturday night against the Mets, Jason Heyward started in center. Monday and Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Jordan Schafer started. Tuesday...
The Toronto Blue Jays have placed third baseman Brett Lawrie on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained right ankle.
Sliding haphazardly into second base Monday night, Lawrie appears to have rolled his bad ankle and could miss some extended time. While it wasn’t a guarantee that he would hit the disabled list, due to the growing weakness of a bench in Toronto, the Blue Jays...
Despite their general manager Alex Anthopoulous, saying he thought Brett Lawrie would be back in a couple of days, the Toronto Blue Jays have placed the young infielder on the disabled list. Lawrie had left Monday's game against the Atlanta Braves after sliding into second base and injuring his ankle. The injury was thought to be minor, but as yesterday progressed, the extent...
The Toronto Blue Jays continued their improved play Monday night by pummelling the Atlanta Braves 9-3. With The Blue Jays facing veteran ace Tim Hudson, it was important that they didn’t let him settle, and that is exactly what they avoided. Scoring two each in the second and third innings, the Blue Jays gave their starting pitcher Mark Buehrle some breathing room early, something...
This is just…awesome.
The Toronto Blue Jays came back from a three-run ninth inning deficit on Sunday to beat the Baltimore Orioles. Muneori Kawasaki was the walkoff hero ripping a game-winning two-RBI double that swung a 5-4 deficit to a 6-5 Jays win.
Who cares about highlights on the hit when Kawasaki followed it up with this memorable post-game performance. Instant classic? Instant. Classic.
Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer, Colby Rasmus and J.P. Arencibia both had a two-run shot and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Atlanta Braves 9-3 on Monday night.
Rasmus also doubled off his younger brother, Braves reliever Cory Rasmus, but Toronto lost third baseman Brett Lawrie to a sprained ankle.
Encarnacion went 2 for 5 with five RBIs as the Blue Jays improved to 3-0...
After delivering a walk-off double to beat the Baltimore Orioles, Toronto shortstop Munenori Kawasaki decided to deliver one of the greatest post game interviews of all-time.
Watch as Munenori's attempts to speak English and ultimately just states his country of origin along with his thanks for his teammates:

MUNI!!! Does this interview single handily make up for Pearl Harbor? No, but it definitely helps.
We could all use a litt…

After splitting two games north of the border, the Atlanta Braves and Toronto Blue Jays are set to play two more at Turner Field.
Unfortunately for the Braves, finding room for both Brian McCann and Evan Gattis could prove difficult with the series shifting back home Wednesday night.
While Atlanta struggled in Monday's 9-3 loss at Toronto (22-30), manager Fredi Gonzalez'...

Upton has found himself sitting on the bench lately, due to an unsightly batting average of .148 to along with 60 strikeouts already. Brian McCann has been a welcomed addition back to the team, cranking...
