Found May 27, 2013 on Online Sports Guys:
((HT: Sportsnet/MLB)) Colby and Cory Rasmus are on two separate sides of the whole "playing in Major League Baseball" thing... Colby is the starting center fielder for the Toronto Blue Jays Cory is a reliever in his rookie year for the Atlanta Braves Tim Hudson's outing on the road in SkyDome was less than sterling, so it meant the bullpen got called in a 6-1 game... And in MLB's version of "Family Feud Meets Thunderdome," here's what happened... It's always the older brother, isn't it...??? Oh... Toronto won 9-3... Colby went 2-for-4, by the way, with a home run off Hudson. He's now hitting .244 with 8HR and 22RBI Cory pitched the final two innings, gave up 3 earned runs on three hits, and now sports a 12.27 ERA

Braves B.J. Upton Benched?

Has B.J. Upton been benched? For the second game in a row and third in the past four, Braves center fielder B.J. Upton didn’t start.  According to a report by AJC beat writer, Dave O’Brien, Upton is sitting out to work on his swing. Saturday night against the Mets, Jason Heyward started in center.  Monday and Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Jordan Schafer started.  Tuesday...

Brian McCann One-Ups Evan Gattis

Brian McCann is still one of the best catchers in the game Evan Gattis may be getting the lion’s share of the Atlanta Braves media attention, but veteran backstop Brian McCann is showing that he is still one of the best hitting catchers in the game. Gattis had another stellar game when the Braves played against the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday afternoon.  He blasted his twelfth home...

Mike Minor Q&A, Braves Nouveau Ace

Is Mike Minor the Braves ace? Braves starter Mike Minor is off to a great start with a 6-2 record and a 2.47 ERA so far this season.  Minor also has the fourth best ERA in Major League Baseball since the 2012 All-Star break. Minor has arguably become the Braves ace, and along with Kris Medlen and Julio Teheran gives the Braves a dynamic, young nucleus in the starting rotation. Mike...

Three Cuts: McCann-led Braves rally past Jays

Here are three things we learned from the Braves' taxing 7-6 win over the Blue Jays, ensuring a split for the Toronto portion of this home-and-home, four-game series: 1. If only Brian McCann and Evan Gattis could alternate between catcher and DH every day With elite reserves like Gattis, Jordan Schafer and Juan Francisco, the Braves' lineup has enough power, speed and...

Braves take series in Flushing, begin split-series with Jays

Despite a bizarre weather-induced suspension in the 8th inning of game 1, the Braves were able to play the remainder of game 1 prior to game 2 and won both. The Braves took another series, this one within the division, before heading north to face off against the AL Toronto Blue Jays. Game 1: Somewhat lost in the absurdity of suspending the game in the 8th after the Braves ‘pen...

Three Cuts: Blue Jays' 3 home runs help beat Braves 9-3

The Toronto Blue Jays jumped all over the Braves 9-3 in interleague play on Memorial Day. Here are three observations from the game: 1. Inserting a designated hitter into Atlanta's lineup has yet to work out With a lineup overloaded with powerful bats (namely at the catcher position), a common hypothetical emerged early on this season: What if the Braves were in the American...

Braves-Blue Jays Preview

The Atlanta Braves' lengthy winning streak is over. The NL East leaders will look to bounce back by ending their longest interleague road skid. Atlanta faces the Toronto Blue Jays and Mark Buehrle, the all-time interleague wins leader, in the opener of a four-game series Monday night. After outscoring opponents 47-21 in winning eight in a row, Atlanta (30-19) fell 4-2 to the...

Lost Lovvies

Actual conversation tonight. The loss of so many recent lovvies has been weighing on me lately... Thanks for trying to make me feel better, Michelle. :) But you know, those guys were SUPER Lovvies. And I know I still have a few Braves on the current roster who are high on the list... it's just tough when so many faves got traded / left in free agency / are injured.

Braves activate reliever Walden from DL

ATLANTA The Atlanta Braves have activated right-hander Jordan Walden from the disabled list and optioned Cory Rasmus to Triple-A Gwinnett. The Braves announced the move Wednesday before the start of a two-game home series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Walden was acquired from the Los Angeles Angels over the winter. He was 1-1 with a 4.85 ERA in 14 games before he went on the...

Blue Jays’ Bats Stay Hot, Rout Braves

The Toronto Blue Jays continued their improved play Monday night by pummelling the Atlanta Braves 9-3. With The Blue Jays facing veteran ace Tim Hudson, it was important that they didn’t let him settle, and that is exactly what they avoided. Scoring two each in the second and third innings, the Blue Jays gave their starting pitcher Mark Buehrle some breathing room early, something...
