Livan Hernandez Intends to Pitch in 2013

Livan Hernandez somehow manages to keep getting work in the Majors.  It's not that he is a bad pitcher, it's just that he shouldn't be any good.  He doesn't throw hard, he's not terribly athletic, and he's 37 years old.  Yet, Hernandez caught on with the Milwaukee Brewers last year after the Atlanta Braves released him, and he intends to continue pitching...

Veteran Hernandez finds role with Brewers

MILWAUKEE At 37 years old, showcasing a fastball that no longer beats many major league batters and a breaking ball that has, at times, dipped below the speed limit outside Miller Park, Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Livan Hernandez doesn't cast the intimidating shadow that he once did on the mound. Once a World Series MVP and an imposing innings-eater when the Florida Marlins wona...

BP Unfiltered: The REAL Reason the Braves Released Livan Hernandez by Ian Miller

I was doing my usual hard-hitting style of investigative journalism (i.e., using Google) for a forthcoming piece on Livan Hernandez when I came across this piece of information on Wikipedia. This explains everything.  Here's the previous version of the Wikipedia entry, which has since been de-"vandalized."

Braves bullpen pelt ball boy with sunflower seeds after botched play

Who knew the Braves bullpen was so ruthless? OK, the players down in the Atlanta pen were just having some fun on Monday night, but it came at the expense of the Tampa Bay Rays ball boy stationed along the third-base line. The ball boy couldn't field a groundball cleanly, and the Braves bullpen let him have it. The pitchers could be seen laughing, taunting him and even throwing...

Braves bullpen throws sunflower seeds at ball boy after he boots grounder (video)

Your browser does not support iframes. A couple days late on this video, but it’s far too amusing to pass up briefly mentioning it. One of the more important responsibilities of a ball boy at work in a major league ballpark is to ensure the safety of members of both teams’ bullpens if those bullpens [...]

Livan Hernandez gave this ballboy the business after he misplayed a foul ball grounder (VIDEO)

The Braves were taking on Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field this past Sunday when a Rays ballboy had the misfortune of booting a foul ball grounder right in front of the Atlanta bullpen.  Immediately the players started giving the poor kid the business, with Livan Hernandez being the most vociferous of the hecklers.  Not only does he harass the ballboy to no end, he also showers him...

Livan Hernandez spreads wisdom throughout bullpen

The guy with the answers is never too far away whenever Craig Kimbrel needs advice or an opinion, or could just use a laugh. He can usually just turn to his left or right to find his knowledgeable teammate, the veteran who is quick to share his wisdom, a joke or two, and a smile that disappears only when he enters a game. Kimbrel, the Braves overpowering young closer, has come...
