  • Stat Line Of The Night — 9/19/12 — Kris Medlen

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/19/12 — Kris Medlen

      The dominance of Kris Medlen continues. In his first nine starts for the Atlanta Braves this season, Medlen was a perfect 7-0 with two no-decisions, and he hadn’t allowed more than two earned runs against in any of those contests. As for last night’s game against the Miami Marlins, Medlen delivered the type of […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/3/12 — Kris Medlen

      This Kris Medlen guy is really something. The Braves’ 26-year-old pitcher entered yesterday’s game against the Colorado Rockies with a 28.1-inning scoreless streak intact, and while that streak would eventually end at 34.2 innings, Medlen’s streak of not allowing an earned run against is still alive and well, at a remarkable 37.1 innings. Medlen […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/28/12 — Kris Medlen

    During the 90s, the Atlanta Braves’ pitching staff dominated the NL Cy Young voting, winning the award a total of seven times between 1991 and 1998.  However, the organization hasn’t produced another Cy Young winner since Tom Glavine won the award in 1998.  They have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of an arm that is […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/15/12 — Kris Medlen

    On July 31st, the Atlanta Braves inserted Kris Medlen into their starting rotation.  It appeared to be a good decision after the 26-year-old righty recorded wins in two of his first three starts, and it is looking even better following his fourth start of the season last night. Not only did Medlen improve his record […]

    Carlos Lee Hit Umpire Joe West In The Head With His Bat (Video)

    Is it just me, or have baseball umpires had it particularly rough this year? To recap, just this season alone, we’ve seen an umpire get hit in the head with a broken bat, punched in the face by Yorvit Torrealba, hit in the junk by a 96 mph Stephen Strasberg fastball, forced to tackle a […]

    Check Out This Drunk Female Fan From The Braves Game (Videos)

    For some, it can take an entire ball game before they are drunk enough to start waving their hands in the air and dancing to the tune of Hall & Oats’ “Kiss On My List.”  For this female Braves fan, it took only three innings to reach that level of intoxication. And while that may […]

    Livan Hernandez Heckles Ball Boy, Showers Him With Seeds (Video)

    Major League baseball players are often on the receiving end of the heckling, whether it is the result of a blown catch, a wild pitch, or a base-running blunder.  After playing 15 seasons in the Majors, Atlanta Braves reliever Livan Hernandez has probably been on the receiving end of his fair share of heckling, but […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 5/17/12 — Brandon Beachy

    The Atlanta Braves organization has developed some great pitchers throughout the past couple of decades.  Among them are the likes of John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux and Tommy Hanson.  And now it is beginning to appear as though it won’t be long before we add Brandon Beachy’s name to that list. After going 7-3 […]

    9 Most Epic Collapses In MLB History

    If you’re a baseball fan, then you are probably aware that the Boston Red Sox are hanging on for dear life in the American League Wild Card standings. On September 1, Boston was 8 ½ games ahead of Tampa Bay. Today, their lead over the Rays is just 1 lousy game. But Boston is not […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/20/11 — Tim Hudson

    The Atlanta Braves entered last night’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays looking to record back-to-back wins at home for the first time since May 29.  Pitcher Tim Hudson did all that he could on the mound to get his team that elusive victory, but he didn’t receive much help from the rest of the […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/13/11 — Hunter Pence

    Having lost eight of their last nine games heading into yesterday’s finale of their four-game series with the Atlanta Braves, the Houston Astros have been one of the coldest teams in baseball.  Oddly enough, they also currently have one of the hottest hitters in baseball in their line-up.  That would be right fielder Hunter Pence, […]
