Atlanta Braves 2015 Preview: 3 Up and 3 Down

The 2014 season was a disappointing one for the Atlanta Braves. After winning its first division title since 2005 the year before, 2014 saw the Braves fall to 79-83. Their offseason could be described as a good old fashioned housecleaning. Gone are the likes of Jason Heyward, Justin Upton and Evan Gattis. In are the new faces that are all around the organization. A flurry of moves...

If there was any doubt about what the Atlanta Braves long-term plans were before they shipped Evan Gattis off to the Houston Astros yesterday, it now stands to reason that the events, that unfolded over the last couple of days, place the Braves in clear start over mode. Was the move surprising? A little bit, but when you begin to break down the trade from all different angles, it...

WATCH: Freddie Freeman snatches foul ball from fan

courtesy of One of the many perks attending a baseball game in the majors is the possibility of leaving the stadium with a souvenir.  It’s not often; but there are times when a foul ball or maybe even a home run ball comes in your direction.   You may only get one chance to get that ball so you may have to fight for it.  The only problem is you may have to wrestle a...

Freddie Freeman - fabulous or fluky?

Freddie Freeman's first two years in the Major Leagues were remarkably similar. He finished his rookie season of 2011 with an OPS of .795. He then finished his second full season with an OPS of .796. Since Freeman was a first baseman which is supposed to be an offensive position, the two finishes seemed to indicate the kind of player Freeman was and it was not quite good enough...
