Costanza shown on baseball video board

A great moment of “Seinology” occurred during a recent minor league baseball game, once again proving that more often than not, the world is such a place and a legendary show was so profound that a diligent effort isn’t even required to make “Seinfeld” references. During a recent game between the Toledo Mud Hens, the […]The post Ballplayer has same last name, so George...

Could Constanza Win the Left Field Job?

Could Jose Constanza win the left field job this spring? Bloggers, pundits and sportswriters are continually speculating who will be the Braves left fielder, and/or bat lead-off, in 2013.  Many are predicting that GM Frank Wren will make a trade to bring in a warm body. The more time that goes by without any movement leads me to believe that the Braves may look within.  As Dorothy...

Braves' outfield battle comes down to three

Jose Constanza helped energize the Braves last August with his ability to reach base and his speed. His performance appeared to give him a head start on making the team in 2012. But Constanza has struggled this spring, leaving room for two other backup outfielders Jordan Parraz and Luis Durango to play their way into the race for a spot on the opening day roster.

2012 player preview: Luis Durango

The Braves signed Luis Durango this offseason as a minor league free agent, and invited him to spring camp. Looking at Durango's skills overall, he reminds me a lot of someone else that will be in camp, but on the 40-man roster: Jose Constanza. Durango has gotten brief cups of coffee in the majors over the last three seasons with the Padres and Astros, and has really only shown...

2012 player preview: Jose Constanza

Jose Constanza is a very polarizing figure among Braves fans. Some erroneously believe that he should have gotten more playing time down the stretch. Some correctly believe that all he can be is an extra outfielder due to his good speed and little else in his game. Constanza will go into camp competing for the fifth outfielder slot (yes, fifth outfielder....remember, Matt Diaz and...
