Found July 28, 2013 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
YouTube Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday hit a foul pop up toward the Braves’ dugout Sunday night that Freddie Freeman had a beat on.  Freeman ran out of real estate, but still made a ridiculous catch leaning over the railing at the dugout.  Common baseball decency says that a players OWN TEAM should come to his aid when he’s approaching the dugout. Notice how late BJ Upton and Eric O’Flaherty were to the party as Freeman almost smashed his face falling over the fence. Both are on the disabled list and obviously weren’t paying attention to the game.

Right now, all of the starters in the Braves rotation--or that could possibly be in it--have exactly one postseason start between them. For this reason, Philadelphia Phillies starter Cliff Lee

Braves' Brandon Beachy returns to replace Tim Hudson

The Atlanta Braves were hoping to have both Brandon Beachy and Tim Hudson in their starting rotation this season.

Simmons’ double lifts Braves past Cardinals

It was Andrelton Simmons whose would-be pop-fly single drew a questionable infield fly ruling in the Braves’ Wild Card game loss to St. Louis in October when they had two runners on base and one out in the eighth and the Cardinals led 6-3. In the eighth inning Saturday it was Simmons’ two-out two-run double that lifted the Braves to a 2-0 win against the Cardinals in front of...

Your browser does not support iframes. It looks like Braves players attempted to pull off the ol’ Tiger Woods bouncing-ball-to-crushing swing maneuver while hanging out with the MLB Fan Cave crew at Citi Field recently. With the exception of Andrelton Simmons, it didn’t really go all that well. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
