Braves exit early again, lose to Dodgers in NLDS

The Atlanta Braves came achingly close to forcing the National League division series back to Turner Field, where they had the best home record in the majors this season. Needing a win to avoid elimination, pinch-hitter Jose Constanza's RBI single gave the Braves a 3-2 lead and plenty of hope in the seventh inning. It didn't hold up, though, and they went on to lose 4-3...

Braves take series opener vs. Cardinals

It wasn’t exactly redemption but it would have to do. The Braves hosted the Cardinals on Friday night without the drama of a one-game Wild Card playoff and an infield fly called 225 feet from home plate to rile up the masses but they walked away 4-1 winners over the team with the best record in baseball in front of a packed house. A sellout crowd of 50124 — only the third sellout...

Atlanta Braves Option Reliever Alex Wood

Left-handed reliever Alex Wood was optioned by the Atlanta Braves over the weekend and sent to their Triple-A Gwinnett minor league affiliate. The move was made to open up a spot on the major league roster for Jose Constanza. Wood, who had a very solid 2.45 earned run average over 16 appearances with Atlanta should be recalled fairly soon, once the All-Star break has passed. The...

Baseball a road to riches for Dominicans

You stop counting at 50, although the number is at least twice that. None of them are pretty; few are even lined, although vague ruts can be seen when the sun hits just right, well-worn footpaths to a better life. No American kid would be caught dead playing baseball on any of the endless stream of baseball fields off the road between Punta Cana and Santa Domingo in the Dominican...

Pastornicky Making Case for Braves Bench Job

Could Braves Manager Fredi Gonzalez tab Tyler Pastornicky for a bench spot? Conventional wisdom is that Evan Gattis, Jordan Schafer, or Jose Constanza, will win the fifth spot on the Braves bench.  Gattis has tremendous power, Schafer has speed and can play all three outfield positions, and Constanza has proven that he can be productive in the major leagues. But with the multiple...

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...
