Found October 04, 2013 on Holdout Sports:
Kate Upton became the first Sports Illustrated swimsuit model to star on the cover of a weekly issue when she joined Atlanta Braves outfielders B.J. Upton and Justin Upton in a photoshoot for SI's MLB postseason preview. Kate Upton looked comfortable wearing a Braves uniform for the shoot, which took place at Citi Field during a road series late in the season against the New York Mets. Although brothers B.J. and Justin have no relation to Kate, they all joked around like family and had a good time. SI provided some behind-the-scenes footage from the photoshoot with "The Uptons". Make sure to keep an eye out for the photobomb from New York Mets star David Wright. H/T SI SwimDaily. Visit us at and follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.

Braves Need Major Minor Tonight

Mike Minor needs to pitch the game of his life tonight Game 1 of the NLDS started with a bang for the Atlanta Braves but things quickly changed after Medlen struck out the side in the top of the first.  The Braves knew it was going to be a tough task to take down Clayton Kershaw, and that ended up being an understatement.  After Kershaw toed the rubber in the bottom of the second...

Video: Braves launch Robin Thicke parody before Game 1

Before the club's opener in the National League Division Series round on Thursday, the Atlanta Braves launched "Baselines," a playful video parody of Robin Thicke's hit song, "Blurred Lines." The parody video, celebrating the franchise's 15th division title since 1991, stars Atlanta-based comedian Aaron Chewning (assuming the Thicke role), the Braves...

Minor-led Braves slip past Dodgers; NLDS tied at 1

ATLANTA It's an interesting paradox. On the most tension-filled night of the Atlanta Braves' season, with the super-sized Turner Field crowd of 48,966 living and dying on every pitch, hit or disputed check swing, the club had all of its eggs in the basket of perhaps the coolest, calmest and most charmingly robotic pitcher on staff. Mike Minor. And the southpaw, cocksure...

Braves to get McCann, Walden back from injury for NLDS

With notable veterans Scott Downs and Dan Uggla being left off the NLDS roster for the Atlanta Braves, the team is going to have to rely on two key players returning from injury to strengthen their lineup and bullpen, according to a report from Eric Single and Mark Bowman of Catcher Brian McCann, who sat out the last three games of the regular season with a pulled...

An Uggly Situation: Sometimes You Have To Tip Your Cap To Your Rival

When I heard this morning, that the Atlanta Braves did not include second baseman Dan Uggla on their National League Divisional Series roster, my first inclination was that he was hurt. He wasn’t. The Braves did not include the three-time All-Star on their 25-man roster because of his .179 batting average – the lowest among major league qualifiers this season. Uggla, now...

Braves falter in four key areas, drop Game 1 to Dodgers

ATLANTA On Sunday, the Atlanta Braves begrudgingly ceded home-field advantage throughout the National League playoffs to the St. Louis Cardinals, by virtue of missing out on the league's best record by a single game. On Thursday, the Braves surrendered homefield once again a consequence of their 6-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of the NL Division Series round...

Dodgers' rally falls short to Braves, series tied

ATLANTA (AP) -- Mike Minor slammed his fist into his glove after getting out of a jam with a strikeout. Luis Avilan pumped his arm wildly after escaping another mess with a huge double play. The Braves were fired up for this one, with good reason. Atlanta got the win it had to have before heading to Los Angeles. Minor pitched six strong innings, Jason Heyward had a two-run...

Braves beat Dodgers to even series

Mike Minor slammed his fist into his glove after getting out of a jam with a strikeout. Luis Avilan pumped his arm wildly after escaping another mess with a huge double play. Andrelton Simmons hollered after a neat tag in the ninth. The Braves were fired up for this one, with good reason. Atlanta got the win it had to have before heading to Los Angeles. Minor pitched six strong...

Braves stumble early, lose to Dodgers 6-1 in NLDS

The Atlanta Braves flopped and staggered their way to another October debacle. With Dan Uggla watching from the dugout, this one was downright ugly. Clayton Kershaw struck out 12 during seven dominant innings, Adrian Gonzalez hit a two-run homer and the Los Angeles Dodgers blew out the bumbling Braves 6-1 in Game 1 of the NL division series Thursday night. The Braves haven'...

Dodgers head home all even, lose to Braves 4-3

The call in the ninth inning didn't go the Dodgers' way. Neither did the decision to face Jason Heyward rather than Reed Johnson. When it was done, Los Angeles headed home all tied up. Mike Minor pitched six strong innings in his first postseason start, Jason Heyward had a two-run single and the Atlanta Braves made plenty of nifty plays in the field, holding off the Dodgers...

NLDS Game 2: Braves edge Dodgers 4-3

The Atlanta Braves beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3 in Game 2 of their NLDS matchup to even the series at one game apiece. What a wild game. Mike Minor got off to a shaky start for Atlanta, walking Mark Ellis and allowing an RBI double to make it a 1-0 game right off the reel. But Minor went into shutdown mode after that, not allowing a Dodgers runner to get to second base until...

NLDS preview: Dodgers vs. Braves

Before the Cardinals' hot September gave them the best record in the National League, many fans, reporters and analysts anticipated the Dodgers and Braves playing for the pennant and a trip to the World Series. Instead, these two clubs will be playing for a spot in the NLCS. This series features the two best pitching staffs in MLB based on ERA. Atlanta led the majors with a...

Kate Upton Busts Out In The 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Calendar

How smart is Sports Illustrated? First they feed you their sexy Swimsuit Issue, then months later they save some of the unpublished photos from the shoot and release them in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Calendar. And I’m totally cool with them doing so because sexy is sexy. I can’t get enough of the gorgeous SI Swimsuit models that are featured in the calendar, Nina Agdal...
