Found March 04, 2012 on Fox Sports:
Atlanta pitcher Julio Teheran was tagged for six home runs in just two innings and the Detroit Tigers connected nine times overall Sunday in romping past the Braves 18-3. Prince Fielder homered his time up. Tigers teammate Ryan Raburn hit two home runs, including a grand slam. With a strong wind blowing out to right field, the Tigers teed off against Teheran. Competing for a spot in the Braves' rotation, he allowed a total of six hits, all of them home runs. The post-1900 record for homers allowed in a major league regular season game, by the way, is six. That's happened eight times, most recently by Tampa Bay's James Shields in 2010 against Toronto, STATS LLC said. Tim Wakefield and R.A. Dickey also are on the list. Max Scherzer made his spring debut for the Tigers and allowed three hits in two scoreless innings. Closer Jose Valverde pitched a shutout inning.

Braves lose game-2 of spring 18-3, but the good news is…

By Kent Covington RHP Randall Delgado So… day-2 of the Grapefruit League season didn’t exactly go as planned. Of course it ‘s just spring training (and very early in the spring at that), but an 18-3 loss is always ugly. To say it was a disappointing day for the Braves top-2 pitching prospects, Randall Delgado and Julio Teheran, doesn’t begin to describe it. Delgado gave up...

I’m Not Buying: Michael Bourn

I was Bourn to steal bases T... Bourn Identity Speed kills. If you are looking for speed on base paths too early in your draft, it could kill your fantasy teams too. I understand the possibility of having a guy who can steal 60+ bases is alluring, but to go down this road could just lead you to be road kill. Michael Bourn has speed and will get you plenty of stolen...

Spring training a time for relaxation, not panic

Dont panic. And judging by what Ive read, some of you already are, for lack of a better term, freaking out. Granted, its like September never ended for the Braves. Two games into the spring schedule, and they have two losses. Its not like theyre just 0-2, its the way theyve lost their first two games. In Saturdays opener, they were listless and hitless until the eighth and finished...

Detroit Tigers preview and predictions: Rick Porcello

Rick Porcello When I was 7 years old, my father decided he did not think it was best for me to tear up the Tee Ball record book for another year, so he wrote a letter to my city’s youth baseball association, telling them I was ready to be called up to play with the 8, 9, and 10 year olds a year early.  They agreed, and I was allowed to take the field.  From there I excelled for...

DOs and DONTs: Atlanta Braves

The Atlanta Braves are coming off a miserable collapse.  Yes believe it or not the Boston Red Sox weren’t the only team that collapsed last year.  This is a look at their 40 man roster as we head into the 2012 season.  The other 29 teams in baseball have been covered by me and my colleagues so take a look at all 30 Dos and Don’ts before you draft your fantasy baseball team...

The Case against Brandon Inge at Second

As spring training gets under way and games begin, possibly the biggest (and arguably undeserving) story line of the spring is the move of Brandon Inge to second base, and whether or not he can win the starting job. With the debate already in full swing, we take a look inside at why come April 5th, Inge should be nowhere near the keystone.

Heyward helps Braves beat Astros

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -- Jason Heyward hit a two-run single, Jair Jurrjens pitched two innings and the Atlanta Braves beat the Houston Astros 10-5 in a spring training game on Monday. Heyward is trying to bounce back after he hit just .227 with 14 homers and 42 RBIs last year.

Detroit Tigers a Fantasy Baseball Haven In 2012

In the past, many Fantasy Baseball owners targeted players from the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox early and often in their drafts. After all, those teams boast two of the most stacked lineups each and every season, so why not load up on players from those two teams, especially on offense? While the Yankees and Red Sox do offer plenty of fantasy baseball superstars...

Should Liberty Media sell the Braves? Careful what you wish for.

By Kent Covington Commissioner, Bud Selig & Braves CEO, Terry McGuirk I hear it every day in the Twitterverse… “Liberty Media sucks! I wish they’d sell the Braves to someone who gives a @#$>*&# about the team!” But be careful what you wish for.  You see, Liberty Media doesn’t suck as an owner quite as much as you think. In fact, they don’t suck at all. If...
