Manager Fredi Gonzalez has set his second-half rotation with right-hander Tim Hudson pitching versus the Mets on Friday, followed by right-hander Tommy Hanson. Right-hander Jair Jurrjens will face the Giants in the first of a three-game series beginning on July 17. Who starts on July 15 depends on how right-hander Ben Sheets progresses with his minor league starts.
Chipper Jones said in a speech before Tuesday's MLB All-Star Game that he wasn't going out losing. He and the rest of the National League squad made sure that was the case, dominating the American League and walking away with an 8-0 victory and home-field advantage in the upcoming World Series. Jones received just one at-bat in the contest, and it came in the sixth inning...
If you're a diehard baseball fan and your younger years land somewhere in the 1990s, chances are you have a soft spot for Chipper Jones. OK, maybe Mets fans feel a little differently, and perhaps cable wasn't readily available in some households. But for most others, Jones was the face of Braves baseball on TBS, and you watched Braves Baseball on TBS. Don't lie. You know...
Michael Bourn, Jason Heyward and Martin Prado molded into baseball's top outfield in one year's time.
ATLANTA (AP) -- David Ross homered and drove in four runs, Chipper Jones also connected and the Atlanta Braves survived a crisis at shortstop to beat the New York Mets 7-5 on Friday night.
The Braves started the day thin at shortstop. They chose to wait to replace rookie Andrelton Simmons, who broke his right little finger on Sunday and will be out at least a month. Atlanta then...
ATLANTA (AP) -- Jack Wilson left the Atlanta Braves' game against the New York Mets on Friday night with a dislocated finger, forcing Martin Prado to play shortstop for the first time in four years.
Wilson is the second Braves shortstop to injure his right little finger this week.
The Braves said Wilson dislocated the middle joint of the right little finger and X-rays were...
You gotta love it. He’s 40 years old and still has a love for the game that most people would be lucky to feel once in their life. The All Star game may be a poorly run show, but it’s certainly a special moment for the newbies and the older players.
Of course Chipper got a hit in his only at bat and now he’ll head back to Atlanta where every 5th game is a scheduled off day...
Uh, accidentally hit publish early - come back later for the rest! :)

Do you think the little Ugglas will remember being in the parade?
The only Bourn truck picture we could find. Wish we'd found one where he was smiling...
KANSAS CITY, MO.-- This wasnt another alleged conspiracy, the equivalent of the fastball that Chan Ho Park supposedly grooved to Cal Ripken Jr. in 2001, enabling Ripken to hit a home run in his final All-Star Game.
Let the record show that Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler actually did try to field the slow, five-hopper by the Braves Chipper Jones through the first-base hole on...

After beginning the 2012 season as the rookie shortstop for the Atlanta Braves, Tyler Pastornicky is continuing to improve his game in Triple-A. He came out of Spring Training with a starting spot in Atlanta but was moved to Gwinnett after the Braves decided to call up Andrelton Simmons from Double-A. Since then, he has not been discouraged and continues to improve in every aspect of his game.
The Atlanta Braves are coming out of the All-Star break sporting a 46-39 record, 4 games out of first place in the NL East. An acceptable start, yes—but not the level of success that leads to a World Series championship.
That’s where the trade deadline comes in.
In a complete reversal from last year, pitching has become the Braves’ biggest weakness in 2012. Between the loss...
A power outage at Turner Field caused a 16-minute delay in Friday night's game between the New York Mets and the Atlanta Braves.
The Braves were leading 2-0 with two outs in the top of the second inning, and Tim Hudson was pitching to the Mets' Jose Thole, when power was lost at the stadium.
After only a few seconds, limited power was restored, including to the scoreboard...
