WATCH: Braves reliever can

  The Atlanta Braves have the second worst record in all of baseball, and one particular event Friday night summed up their season perfectly. Reliever Chris Withrow was summoned from the bullpen in the 7th inning, but there was just one problem: he couldn’t get out of the bullpen no matter what he did.   It should be noted that this was at Citi Field in New York, so this...

Let’s Just Accept That Chris Withrow Is Getting Optioned Now And Be Done With It

Projection Systems Don’t Like Chris Withrow, Should We Be Worried?

(via) Chris Withrow had a surprisingly good season in 2013. After being stuck in AA for over three years, he managed to make an impact at the major league level, which was far beyond what we expected. Withrow’s season came out of nowhere, but it was not without its warning signs. As a result, all four major projection systems that have been released see Withrow taking a major step...
