Michael Bourn is a pretty terrific defensive center fielder. Last year, he was the best defensive outfielder in baseball by UZR (after you account for the positional differences), grading out as 25 runs above an average defensive player, and it wasn’t a one year aberration, as no player has a hi...
BEST OF MAXIM
Former MLB closer John Rocker has written a column in which he makes what he believes to be a compelling argument against gun control.
The Atlanta Braves Country Caravan will roll through the southeast from Jan. 22-Feb. 2.
For two weeks, Braves players, coaches, broadcasters and front office staff will hit the road, traveling nearly 3,000 miles of Braves territory to meet and greet fans prior to taking off for spring training.
The Braves Country Caravan provides the opportunity to engage fans with players, coaches...
The Atlanta Braves have largely remained dormant this winter, aside from signing BJ Upton to replace Michael Bourn as the team's center fielder. Aside from filling that hole in center field, the Braves really didn't need to do much this winter. They still haven't replaced Chipper Jones' bat in their lineup, but aside from that, Atlanta largely stood pat. But now,...
If Brian McCann has his way, he'll be in the Braves' lineup come April 1 against the Phillies.
"If all goes well, it's going to be hard for me to sit there and watch the team on Opening Day, if I'm feeling good," McCann told MLB.com.
The six-time All-Star catcher underwent surgery on his right shoulder on Oct. 16 to repair a tear in his labrum.
Power hasnt exactly been part of the Braves outfield makeup of late.
Its been seven years since an Atlanta outfielder hit at least 30 home runs, dating back to Andruw Jones 41-blast year of 2006, and just as long since the franchise had two with at least 29, when Jeff Francoeur hit that number that same season.
Atlanta now has a chance to change all of that with two players with...
The Texas Rangers are keeping the lines of communication
open on free agent Michael Bourn and Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Justin
Upton, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. If the price is right, the
Rangers would be willing to make either move, adds Morosi.
Rangers are keeping lines of communication open on Bourn (free agent) and Upton (trade), prepared to act...

Fans will have the opportunity to take pictures and get autographs signed while the Braves make various community appearances...
I don’t understand why I continue to read posts and comments about the Mets needing to sign center fielder Michael Bourn. Why?
I look at Bourn’s age (30) and his career numbers, and I don’t see what the fascination is all about.
Is it just the speed?
Bourn, who is represented by Scott Boras, is reportedly seeking a deal worth $100 million dollars as a free agent.
I see that...
Is it possible we are watching the beginning of the end for Dan Uggla? Let’s look at some facts from his forgettable 2012 season:
He posted his second-highest strikeout rate (26.7%) in his career and he posted 4 months in 2012 that were worse than his worst month in 2011.
His power basically disappeared as he posted a career-low .164 ISO (career .216 / previous low .198 in 2006...
Baseball is oh-so-close to being back.
With Spring Training fast approach pitchers and catchers are set to report in less than a month the FOXSportsSports.com team gathered for its first-ever Chopcast to breakdown each and every infield position for the Braves in 2013.
Here are a few of the highlights:
-- Can catcher Brian McCann return to his pre-injury, All-Star level this...
The quartet of four free agents that denied qualifying offers this winter is now down to two, after Rafael Soriano signed with the Nationals on Tuesday, following in the footsteps of Adam LaRoche. That leaves just Kyle Lohse and Michael Bourn both unsigned, and with Soriano and LaRoche falling off the market this month, one would expect Lohse and Bourn to eventually find new employers...
