Found July 23, 2012 on Love My Bravos:
*pat pat* I was really hoping for a series sweep in our nation's capital (weren't we all?), but I'll take a split. Those first two games were amazing! Let's look at some pictures from all of them...

Braves Go Dempster Diving To Improve Rotation

The starting rotation was supposed to be a strength for the Braves, but they instead opened today with just one qualified starter with a sub-4.40 ERA.

Marlins going for back-to-back wins vs. Braves

The Atlanta Braves may be in search of an offensive spark, but they appear to be close to landing an impact piece for their rotation. With a potential trade for Ryan Dempster seemingly in the works, Tim Hudson looks to continue his dominance of the Miami Marlins and help the Braves snap a three-game skid Tuesday night. Atlanta (52-44) has totaled four runs and batted .181 during...

On Lannan Replacing Strasburg

One of my favorite baseball happenings of 2012 occurred yesterday, when John Lannan returned from minor-league exile to stop the Nats’ two-game skid and extend their NL East lead to 2.5 games. It was a big game, as far as July goes, both for the team and the man, who was demoted this spring in favor of Ross Detwiler and Chien-Ming Wang after being the rotation’s bedrock through...

GIFcap: Martin Prado Swings & Misses & Falls … Again

When I was making this GIF, I thought that this looked awfully familiar. Sure enough, Martin Prado did this exact same thing a while back, and I made a GIF of it then too. #Barves

Shark Week Comes Early In DC

On August 12, the Discovery Channel will begin its highly anticipated, 25th annual “Shark Week”, highlighting some of the craziest shark related stories in history.

In the past 22 days...

Braves-Marlins Preview

The Atlanta Braves just squandered a great chance to move closer to the top of the NL East, but they're still in a good spot. The Miami Marlins, meanwhile, haven't been in a worse position all season. Atlanta goes for a fourth straight victory at Miami on Monday night when the Marlins try to avoid a season high-tying sixth straight defeat. After back-to-back wins over...

Dempster: No Braves deal yet

The Braves were reportedly close to finalizing a deal to acquire right-handed pitcher Ryan Dempster from the Cubs, which would bolster their starting rotation to make a run at the division-leading Washington Nationals, but Dempster said via Twitter that there was no trade.

This is just wrong LOL.  Photo courtesy of readtheapple.com   Well folks, it’s Star Wars night again.  Even Jabba the Hutt, er I mean Snooki, will be in attendance.  Now I have to go shower because I wrote her into this report. Hopefully a bit of “Force” can break the Mets out of this horrendous slump that has put them below .500 for the first time this season.  However...
