Love My Bravos:
You can win an game-used Braves jersey... if you have the top bid. The Braves are auctioning off the jerseys actually worn by the players during the upcoming June 15 game against the Orioles, with proceeds going to the Atlanta Braves Foundation.
Auctions fascinate me, and I'm always curious about how players are valued, so I made a spreadsheet that you might find interesting. Below you'll see the starting bid for each jersey - sorted alphabetically on the left and by starting bid on the right - and I'd love to hear what you have to say about them...
Undervalued: McCann, Prado, maybe Huddy, MEDLEN
Just think, you can theoretically have MattE, Meds, Ske, and Livo for less than the starting bid on Chipper. Your thoughts?
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Martin Prado is in the perfect place.
The guy in front of him is hitting .323 and knows what to do when he reaches first. Michael Bourns 13 steals are tied for second in the NL.
And the guy behind him is becoming one of the leagues top run producers. Freddie Freeman has taken over the No. 3 spot in the Braves order, and his 32 RBIs are tied for third in the league.
HAIL OF SUNFLOWER SEEDS
When I first watched the video above I thought to myself that Braves pitcher Livan Hernandez is an asshole for teasing this kid and showering him with sunflower seeds after he botched a fould ball. But the more I think about it, it’s kind of the opposite.
Hernandez was just playing around with the kid and it’s actually kind of nice to see guys interacting...
HONORING A LEGEND
The Reds have planned a unique way to honor the longtime Braves star during his farewell tour before retiring when the teams play a series this week in Cincinnati.
Drew Sutton has been traded to Tampa Bay for ptbnl or cash.

It was over before it ever started.
Just yesterday, the Pirates acquired Drew Sutton from Atlanta for cash. He now has been traded to Tampa Bay for a player to be named later or cash. I would assume that it is going to be for a player, because if not, it means the Pirates...
The entire Atlanta Braves bullpen got all over Rays' ball boy for misplaying this foul ball. Livan Hernandez capped the fun by showering the kid with sunflower seeds.

For all you New York fans wondering what ever happened former-Mets starter Livan Hernandez— well, he's throwing balls for the Atlanta Braves bullpen and picking on opposing team's ballboys for fun.
During Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays, the 37-year old Hernandez tossed what looked like a couple of handfuls of sunflower seeds at a ballboy after the youngster...
Atlanta BravesHitters: A. The Braves team OPS has risen from .695 last year under old hitting coach Larry Parrish to .737 this year under brand new hitting coach Greg Walker. The major improvements include Michael Bourn, in a career year, posting an .815 OPS with three homers and 13 stolen bases, and Martin Prado, fully healthy this year and OPSing .864 behind Bourn at the top of...
Your browser does not support iframes. A couple days late on this video, but it’s far too amusing to pass up briefly mentioning it. One of the more important responsibilities of a ball boy at work in a major league ballpark is to ensure the safety of members of both teams’ bullpens if those bullpens [...]
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Right-hander Mike Leake hit his first career homer -- part of three solo shots in a row by the Cincinnati Reds -- and allowed only two hits over eight innings Monday night for a 4-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves.
Drew Stubbs hit two of the career-high four homers allowed by Atlanta starter Mike Minor (2-4). All the runs scored on solo homers at one of the majors...
Yeah, it's as goofy as you'd think that it would be.
But it is an athlete, albeit a now former one trying to do what people at the Weather Channel do for a living; forecast the weather.
Smoltz was a guest on the Your Weather Today morning show shot in the metro Atlanta area. In this video, the former ace pitcher for the Atlanta Braves and current game analyst for TBS...
