Braves starter Mike Minor is off to a great start with a 6-2 record and a 2.47 ERA so far this season.  Minor also has the fourth best ERA in Major League Baseball since the 2012 All-Star break.

Minor homers, stifles Mets as Braves push streak to 8

The Braves picked up their eighth straight victory Saturday night, beating the Mets 6-0 in weather better suited for football or reading by a fire. Lambeau Field in December had nothing on Citi Field this Memorial Day Saturday. Fans broke out the mittens and ski caps and winds gusted upwards of 30 mph throughout the night. The temperature hit a high of 56, but the cold north wind...

Mike Minor has been major

While completing my daily Game Picks post, I took a look at Mike Minor's statistics and was really surprised at what I found. He has really been pitching well this season. He has had one sub-par outing against the Tigers as the only blight in his nine starts this season. And then I went back to last season and the numbers really did not do much for me until I looked at his splits...

Minor propels Braves over Mets

Start-by-start over the years, the Atlanta Braves have seen Mike Minor emerging as a young, talented pitcher. Perhaps as a hitter, too. Minor homered for his first two RBI in the majors and struck out 10 as the Atlanta Braves posted their second win in a matter of hours, beating the New York Mets 6-0 Saturday for their eighth consecutive victory. ''He's been fun to...

Mike Minor Will Turn It Around Tonight

The Atlanta Braves and the New York Mets were left in suspended animation last night, but does anyone care? The Atlanta Braves, currently in first, have won six consecutive games. On the flip side, the New York Mets, currently in fourth (thanks to the Marlins being slightly worse), have lost six straight at home. Nonetheless, the teams had to wait until today before seeing if both...

Mets On The Trade Market

As the Mets’ season spirals out of control, it is getting close to the time when the organization will be taking – if not making – calls to test the trade waters at the deadline. The past two years the Mets had key players – Jose Reyes and David Wright – facing free agency that made them prime talent to be dealt. Not so this year. GEE: Could today’s starter attract interest...

From One Miserable Week To Another For Mets

It was a rough week for your Mets and the upcoming week doesn’t figure to get any easier. Whatever good feelings developed at Wrigley Field quickly evaporated when they returned home to be swept by Cincinnati. They followed that with losing their first two against the Braves, with once again Dillon Gee running into that one buzz saw inning that shredded him. They conclude their...

Braves take series in Flushing, begin split-series with Jays

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. Game 1: Somewhat lost in the absurdity of suspending the game in the 8th after the Braves ‘pen...
