The Hawks may not be winning too many games this season, but it is fun to see the team go in a youthful direction. The Hawks have done such a great job developing players since Mike Budenholzer took the reigns as head coach. Now he gets to sprinkle his roster with young prospects as the team rebuilds around John Collins, Dennis Schroder, Taurean Prince, and whoever they take in the top five of this year’s draft. The Hawks agreed to buyouts with their older pending free agents, allowing the young guys to get more minutes. Sure, the average fan may not have heard of...Continue reading »

Baseball season is here, so without further ado, we present you with the Braves top 30 prospects for the 2018 season: #1. Ronald Acuna Ronald Acuna is the unquestioned top prospect in all of baseball. His ceiling is limitless as he is a true five-tool prospect. He has wheels, power and can hit for contact. He can play any position in the outfield at a high level. Acuna’s 2017 was the stuff of legends. He began his season in A+ ball and ended it in Gwinnett, having played better after every promotion. Though just 20-years old, Acuna is on the cusp of being Atlanta’s...Continue reading »

The Hawks trade Dennis Schroder and picks 25 and 29 to the Pheonix Suns for Brandon Knight and pick 5 The Pheonix Suns continue to find their future point guard, and Schroder could be the answer. While the fifth overall pick (currently) seems like a steep price tag, consider that not only are the Suns still getting two first-round picks back, but they get a team-friendly contract in Dennis Schroder and get rid of a terrible contract in Brandon Knight. The Suns will likely hold on to the picks, likely in hopes of landing Trae Young. However, the Suns are a very young...Continue reading »

The Braves bullpen got better via addition by subtraction when they dealt Jim Johnson to the Angels. Though fans will rejoice his departure, Johnson’s role still must be filled. The Braves have a ton of young pitching talent that they are in the process of developing, with potential for a deadly bullpen in the course of the next few years. Unfortunately, as the roster currently stands, Rex Brothers and Sam Freeman are the only true veterans in the bullpen. Brothers is far from a lock to make the roster, and Freeman is merely a specialist. Though the bullpen could...Continue reading »

There may be a parade in Cumberland. After a painful season of watching Jim Johnson close games, new general manager Alex Anthopolous has successfully gotten the liability off the books. Johnson has been packaged alongside $1.21 million of international pool money to the Los Angeles Angels for minor leaguer Justin Kelly. This deal essentially just gets Johnson off the books. This move is definitely addition by subtraction, as Johnson was simply terrible last season. The numbers do not even do it justice. This opens up more money to spend elsewhere for Atlanta and opens...Continue reading »

After seven weeks of hell, the Braves have been handed down their punishment from the MLB. It was not pretty. The MLB has been investigated what was reportedly a very cancerous Braves front office, but more importantly their misconduct with international players. Many fans were excited when the team hauled in a legendary IFA class in 2016. Now, these players have been deemed free agents. The following players will no longer be property of Atlanta: Kevin Maitan Abrahan Gutierrez Yunior Severino Juan Contreras Livan Soto Yefri del Rosario Yenci Pena Guillermo Zuniga Juan...Continue reading »

In typical Atlanta fashion, the Falcons attempted to choke away a double-digit lead in the last four minutes of their Monday Night Showdown in Seattle. However, a Blair Walsh missed 52-yard field goal temporarily stopped the Falcons bleeding, as Atlanta went to sleep Monday night with their foot in the door of the playoff picture as the sixth seed. It has been a wild ride from start to finish to this point. A shaky 3-0 start was still a 3-0 start. Until some of those close games began to turn into losses like they did in back-t0-back weeks against the lowly Bills and...Continue reading »

The Hawks are invested in the future. After dodging rebuild talk all summer long, Tony Ressler finally came out a few weeks ago and addressed the rebuilding state of the team with’s David Aldridge for the first time. He could not have worded the outlook for this team any better: “Truly, there are three options in the NBA, I would argue: being a contender, being a competitive team, and being young and fun. At least that would be my opinion. And we didn’t have the option of being a contender.” Ressler is right. Hawks fans know this all too well...Continue reading »

The Braves finally have a new general manager amid controversy. The Braves have seemingly been in limbo as an organization since it was announced that the team was under investigation by the MLB. Sanctions are yet to come down but John Coppolella was ousted by the organization. They now have the perfect man for “phase two” of the rebuild: Can report now Anthopoulos is getting #Braves GM job, announcement possible at GM Meetings — Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) November 13, 2017 Anthopoulos was the Toronto Blue Jays general manager from 2009-15, and...Continue reading »

Coming into the game on Sunday it was almost a “must-win” for the Falcons after losing four of their last five games and falling to 4-4 on the season. With the Falcons opening up a home stand with the next four of five at Mercedes-Benz, the birds knew that they had to win at least three of these next five games to have a significant shot of reaching the playoffs, and they started off just the way that they wanted to against the Cowboys. Adrian Clayborn set a franchise record of SIX sacks on Dak Prescott, and the pass defense...Continue reading »
