Braves skid through San Diego & Seattle

If there are two teams in baseball that can truly understand what the Atlanta Braves are going through, the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners can. The Padres have struggled their way through the 2014 season with terrible hitting. They are dead last in runs scored (363). As a team, they have the lowest batting average in either league (.225).

Tommy La Stella is the second baseman the Braves deserve

For much of the 2014 season, the Braves' offensive and defensive production from second base has been nothing short of awful. It was believed that Dan Uggla would turn things around on both sides of the ball after a historically terrible season in 2013, but after Uggla started the season off with a .168 average with two home runs, 10 runs batted in, and 37 strikeouts in 119 at...

Chopcast: Bullpen, bench key elements to Braves' season

The bench is often out of sight and out of mind when discussing a team's offseason moves, but a smartly-constructed unit and a quality farm system can pay off over the course of a 162-game schedule. The Atlanta Braves found that out last season, when every position player not named Chris Johnson hit the disabled list at one point or another. Starters can struggle from time to...
