In the final day of minicamp, some players had their opportunities to shine. T.J. Yates took over the first team offense as Matt Ryan rested for most of the day. The rookies were out on the field majority of the time. Some players are getting back in the swing of things, while other players look like they haven’t missed a beat. We will take a look at three players who stood out Thursday morning in the last day of minicamp.   1. Jalen Collins With Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford being two proven cornerbacks, Jalen Collins has eyes scoped all over him....Continue reading »

Jake Matthews Jake Matthews was the 6th overall selection out of Texas A&M last season, but his rookie season was a huge disappointment. He suffered a high ankle sprain early in the season which hampered his play, and he just simply played awful for the first half of the season. However, as Matthews got healthier throughout the season, his play improved. He showed great ability as a pass blocker in the second half of the season. If Matthews can fully recover from his Lisfranc injury that he suffered late in the season, this year should be different. Matthews will...Continue reading »

With new ownership taking over in less than a week, they have made it clear they would like a clean slate. It has been reported by Adrian Wojnarowski that the Atlanta Hawks plan to part ways with GM Danny Ferry. This comes after Ferry took a season long leave of absence in the wake up a leaked audio recording in which he made racial comments regarding Miami Heat Small Forward Luol Deng. Though Ferry’s words were not his and were read from a scouting report, it was still enough for Tony Ressler and Co. to go in a different direction. Ferry opened up financial flexibility,...Continue reading »

The Falcons announced earlier today that Offensive Tackle Lamar Holmes has been diagnosed with a broken foot. It is unclear how severe the injury is, but considering Holmes missed all of last season with a foot injury, it does not look good. The Falcons recently just cut another Offensive Tackle in Sam Baker. Baker spent the majority of the last two seasons on IR after a tremendous 2012 season landed him a huge contract. Last season, the Falcons had uncanny amount of injuries on the offensive line. People might even remember Week 4, when the Falcons were forced to play...Continue reading »

The Falcons released Harry Douglas early in the offseason in order to gain some financial leeway. The move cleared up about 3.5 million dollars in cap, but the Falcons lost a valuable piece to their organization. Douglas was a terrific number three receiver and even showed promise when being forced to play a bigger role because of injuries to other receivers. The cut left Hester to assume the role as the third option for Matt Ryan, but since the Falcons have added some younger pieces to compete with Hester for the number 3 receiver spot. So who will assume the number...Continue reading »

When the Braves acquired Cameron Maybin from the Padres, many saw him as just a throw in in the trade. Many figured he was involved to financially offset Melvin Upton Jr.’s albatross of a contract, and that Maybin’s deal could potentially become faulty from the team’s standpoint as well. Months later, Cameron Maybin is now one of our star players on offense with the guidance of hitting coach Kevin Seitzer. Maybin has never lived up to the high expectations people set for him as an up-and-coming prospect. The centerfielder was a consensus top 10 prospect in baseball...Continue reading »

On May 13th, Mike Minor underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum, and it’s been reported that he will miss the entire 2015 season. After an unimpressive 2014 campaign with a record of 6-12 with a 4.77 ERA, fans were already running out of patience with the 7th overall pick in 2009, (Just to tease you guys, Mike Trout was taken 25th overall that year). With a seemingly full rotation, does Minor have a place in Atlanta in the future? Probably not. There’s a decent chance that Mike can go somewhere else in 2016 and put in a few good starts, plug a 4 or 5 spot...Continue reading »

Mike Foltynewicz has shown promise this season since hitting the big league rotation, but his inconsistency has him headed back to AAA Gwinnett, according to David O’ Brien: #Braves send RHP Folty to GBraves, call up IF Castro. Fredi G says no decision on Fri SP in place of Folty — David O'Brien (@DOBrienAJC) June 17, 2015 All season long we have seen “Good Folty” and “Bad Folty”, but there hasn’t been much of an in-between. Foltynewicz had a 5.19 ERA in 9 starts for Atlanta, but wowed many fans with his high velocity....Continue reading »

Hindsight is always 20/20, so in this article the Braves get another shot at every first round pick in each draft from 2005-12. Here is who they should take: Note: I will be accounting for other teams taking better talent. For example, I know Mike Trout went 25th in 2009, but I will assume the Nationals would have taken him at #1. I also only went to 2012 because anything past then is too early to tell for most players. 2005: Braves 1st Round Pick (27th)- Joey Devine, P Braves Redraft Pick- Craig Stammen, P Number One Pick- Justin Upton, OF Number One Redraft Pick- Andrew...Continue reading »
