Greg Maddux comparisons are stupid and lazy, but that was the only thing I could think of as I watched Kris Medlen‘s highlight video from yesterday

Chipper Jones calls out Braves fans: Turner Field was a morgue tonight

The Braves are in a tight wild card race with less than 30 games left in the regular season, so at this point it’s safe to say every inning counts. Despite the fact that Atlanta has been in the hunt all season and almost always seems to be in the hunt, they rank in the middle of the pack in average attendance for home games. Turner Field isn’t exactly Yankee Stadium when it...

Could Medlen be Maddux 2.0?

Kris Medlen is 6-0 with a 0.54 ERA as a starter this season Kris Medlen pitched his second complete game in his last 4 starts on Monday. He allowed but 1 unearned run while striking out 12 Colorado Rockies in another masterful performance. Since shifting back to the starting rotation at the end of August, Kris is 6-0 with a 0.54 ERA in 7 starts. Garnering as much attention as the...

McCann's time in Atlanta may be running out

ATLANTA -- There was a time, not too long ago, when I thought Brian McCann would be the next face of the Braves. In my mind, he was the only candidate to replace Chipper Jones as the heart and soul of the franchise. He would be the guy in the commercials and doing the video announcements at Turner Field and spending his entire career in the familiar uniform. Who would be a better...

Atlanta Braves Chipper Jones for NL MVP

Atlanta, GA. Atlanta Braves’ Chipper Jones should be the NL MVP for 2012. Chipper isn’t in the top five in any statistical category but is hitting .302 so far this year. He is a career .304 hitter with 1619 career RBI and 2711 hits. I am of the opinion that the MVP of the league should be the player that affects his team the most regardless of statistics. Chipper this year...

Braves bench slumping All-Star 2B Dan Uggla

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez is benching three-time All-Star second baseman Dan Uggla. Uggla is hitting only .208. Martin Prado is starting at second base against Colorado on Monday for the second straight day. Gonzalez was Uggla's manager with the Florida Marlins before Atlanta. He says the decision to bench Uggla was ''uncomfortable'' and ''hard,...

Kris Medlen’s Repertoire, Animated

Anyone who’s made his way to these electronic pages is like well-aware that Kris Medlen has been excellent of late — is, in fact, the majors’ best pitcher over the last month by most relevant measures. Nor, really, has Medlen been more excellent of late than he was on Monday afternoon against the Colorado Rockies (box), during which game he recorded 12 strikeouts and zero walks...

Game Day Pictures: Braves vs Rockies 9-3-12

Complete game. NL Player of the Month. No biggie.   It really hurts my heart that I can't cheer for Meds anymore. He was one of my favorites, on my list of "I'm going to get his shirsey" players. But if you were in my shoes, how would you feel, not knowing why? I'm not a stalker, I never asked him for a mention or a RT, and I've always been supportive....

Dan Uggla Sent to the Bench

Atlanta Braves All-Star second baseman, Dan Uggla was diminished to bench duty prior to Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies.  Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez delivered the bad news to Uggla and reportedly told him that his playing time will be limited all September long. Uggla is having a poor season at the plate batting, .208/.340/.373 with 17 homers and 64 RBI. He...

Braves 6, Rockies 1

Game Day Pictures: Braves vs Phillies 9-1-12

I'm sorry, did something else happen in this game? Because this is all I remember. :D   Second game in two days with Susan. We had the best time! We didn't have our "megaphones" (Chipper posters) today, but it's not like we needed them - there was such a roar for everyone! September callups are always exciting. Pictures starting with BP, as usual... EO should...

Rockies-Braves Preview

Chipper Jones has been a member of 12 playoff teams with the Atlanta Braves, and his solid play has helped them get in position to qualify again in his farewell season. The addition of Kris Medlen to the starting rotation has further benefited the cause. The right-hander seeks to extend his impressive scoreless-innings streak as the Braves host the opener of a four-game series...
