Did you go to sleep before you saw this crazy comebacker by BMac that smacked Dodgers' closer Javy Guerra right in the kisser? How he stayed in the game, I don't understand... and neither did anyone else, from the announcers to other players. Javy Guerra is so precious twitter.com/inthecalzone/s… — jane (@inthecalzone) April 26, 2012 #Braves McCann said Guerra is his new favorite player after taking that ball off the face and staying in game, apparently unharmed. — David O'Brien (@ajcbraves) April 26, 2012 AJC: How scary was that initially for you, when the ball went off Guerra’s face McCann: “Oh, man. I told a couple of guys he’s my new favorite player. I mean, it didn’t even faze him. I hit it as hard as I possibly could, and I don’t think it even hit his glove.

GIFcap: Javy Guerra Hit Flush In The Face By Brian McCann Liner

Photo of the Week: Matty Kemp, Demolition Man

OK I’m officially changing Matt Kemp‘s horrible nickname ‘The Bison” to “Demolition Man.”   I think that’s a much more fitting and badass name don’t you?  Besides this picture is a very telling story of Kemp’s season so far.  I mean the dude is simply demolishing the ball. He’s also demolishing homes for rehab.  This picture was taken in L.A. of Kemp doing...
