Indy Ball Weekly Perspective: Atlantic League has what MLB wants

The Atlantic League continues to show they have the goods that other teams need. Tim Gustafson, a veteran of eight professional years, was signed by the Baltimore Orioles. Gustafson was originally drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the 9th round of the 2006 MLB June Amateur Draft from Georgia Institute of Technology. During his career, he's done it all in the minor league game....

The Wind Up: Latest Free Agent Moves

As a lover of both baseball and soccer, the offseason and transfer windows can be quite the agonizing time for me as a sports fan. Still, the MLB offseason is always a little less frightening in comparison. It’s because with baseball, we understand that the majority of notable free agents will sign with a ball club—whether it’s sooner than later or the other way around....

“Socks Up Kid” Jaye Chapman in his MLB Debut…with the Cubs.

Always liked watching this guy pitch when he was in the Braves system, and wasn't very happy he was one who left our organization in the Cubs trade. But hey, he probably made it to the Bigs faster, and I'm sure that made him happy. :)

The Benchwarmers

I waded through about 5 minutes of clips from "The Benchwarmers" trying to find something funny for this post. 5 minutes I'll never recover...

The Verdict

Here are BP's and BA's take on the prospects the Cubs acquired over the last 2 days ranked by potential awesomeness. Arodys Vizcaino (RHP) - 21 year old Baseball America: Vizcaino possesses the raw stuff to justify the hype, but also the injury history to explain why the Yankees and Braves were willing to trade him. He had Tommy John surgery toward the end of spring training...

Braves Scoop Up Useful Paul Maholm and Reed Johnson

The Braves are taking a long-term risk for a short-term gain in trading Arodys Vizcaino and Jaye Chapman for Reed Johnson and Paul Maholm. The most talented player in the deal is obviously Arodys Vizcaino, but he also comes with a ton of question marks. Johnson and Maholm will be asked to do exactly what they did in Chicago. Johnson will be a spot starter in the outfield against...
