Kris Medlen Rides Placid Waters

Atlanta Braves starter Kris Medlen was relaxed and upbeat after he garnered his second win of the season Monday night against the Pittsburgh Pirates, 7-2.  But nothing new there, win or lose, Medlen’s demeanor is always about the same.

No win for Medlen, Braves victorious anyway

ATLANTA The confidence never left Kris Medlen. Not when he had Tommy John surgery. Not when he missed nearly an entire season while rehabbing his right elbow.
