Several weeks ago, in one of my award-winning Watch This pieces (it received Best New Artist at last weekend’s Billboard Music Awards), I commented on how Atlanta Braves catcher Evan Gattis was my favorite story of the 2013 Major League Baseball season thus far. Gattis was brought on by the BARVES as a potential fill-in at catcher while Brian McCann recovered from his offseason...

Did he get the correlation? ''There goes Roy Hobbs,'' Gattis said, chuckling at the thought of being compared to the mythical figure played on screen by...

Gattis, Maholm lead Braves to 5th sweep of season

ATLANTA Around Memorial Day weekend, there are three baseline measures for determining if a balanced ballclub is on the path to 90-plus wins without figuratively breaking a sweat. 1. Dominate opponents at home. 2. Be consistently good against division foes. 3. Show little mercy against baseball's proverbial weaklings especially during Interleague play. On Wednesday, the...

Fredi Gonzalez Figures Out a Way

Tuesday night after Evan Gattis smashed a two-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth against the Twins to tie the game, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez talked about his need to get Gattis into the line-up. “We’ve got to either figure out a way to get to the American League where we can play him more, or for me to figure out a way to play him someplace,” Gonzalez said...

I don't intend to make every blog post about Ike Davis. I really don't. But here's what I want to discuss about Ike from Friday's suspended game: So in the top of the eighth inning, Evan Gattis comes up for the Braves. Now if your address is 385 Under A Rock, Evan Gattis is a beast of a man. He looks like a child took the most muscular parts of every action figure...
