The Braves are frustratingly 3 and 1/2 games out of first place behind the Mets, and the bullpen woes are preventing the seemingly helpless Braves from being in first place by a few games. Atlanta has lost multiple 3+ run leads over the past few weeks. If the pen could lock these down, they would be IN first by a couple of games. The Marlins and Nationals were predicted to fight it out for the NL East Crown, but this “rebuilding” Atlanta squad has moved into contention and has a real possibility of making the playoffs. Here are a couple of midseason trades that could...Continue reading »

Frank Kaminsky is a 7 foot big man out of the University of Wisconsin. In 2015, the senior Center collected about every individual award around college basketball. He was the John R. Wooden winner, which is annually given out to the best individual college basketball player. He also led Wisconsin to a huge victory over Kentucky which gave them birth to the Championship game (where they unfortunately lost to Duke). Kaminsky will be a little bit of a tweener in the NBA. He has the size to play the Center position, but his skill set and agility might be better suited for...Continue reading »

When the Hawks traded their 2015 second round pick to Milwaukee to pick up Lamar Patterson with the 48th overall selection in last year’s draft, I couldn’t have been any happier. I knew Danny Ferry had found second round gold once again. Ferry has a knack for finding great rotational players that fit the Hawks’ system late in the draft, such as Mike Muscala and Mike Scott. Edy Tavares and Lamar Patterson may have been stashed overseas this past season, but they both have the ability to contribute to this team in the future. If you watched Lamar Patterson play in...Continue reading »

As coach and dictator of the Philadelphia Eagles, Chip Kelly decided to release Pro-Bowl guard Evan Mathis because of a contract dispute. It is a baffling move to say the least, as Mathis was one of the Eagles most consistent players throughout the years. ProFootballFocus.com had Mathis rated the best offensive guard from 2011-2013. Though Atlanta picked up Chris Chester, Mathis would be an upgrade above any offensive linemen on Atlanta’s roster. Picking up Mathis is not so much of a need as it is a want. How could Falcons fans not want a two-time Pro Bowler who...Continue reading »

Orlando Ledbetter (@DOrlandoAJC) June 12, 2015 The deal is a four-year contract worth over $14 million. This is good news as the Falcons have signed all of their 2015 NFL Draft selections.

With the way Shelby Miller has pitched, our offseason trade that shipped Jason Heyward and Jordan Walden to the Cardinals is looking real good. However, Tyrell Jenkins has the potential to be the icing on the cake in the deal. Jenkins was committed to play baseball and Quarterback for Baylor University, but he was the 50th overall selection in the 2010 MLB Draft and opted to sign with St. Louis. Since then, he has built a name for himself as a prospect. He cracked many top 100 prospect lists until he underwent shoulder surgery that forced him to miss parts of two seasons....Continue reading »

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Thabo Sefolosha and Pero Antic will appear in court on June 16 in New York. This stems from the April 8th nightclub incident that involved NBA player Chris Copeland’s stabbing. This was a very controversial night in the fact that Sefolosha ended up with a broken fibula. No one truly knows what happened that night, but Sefolosha and Antic were charged with obstructing governmental administration. Both players have kept their mouths shut for the most part about what happened. The attorney for both players has also kept...Continue reading »

        Bobby Portis is certainly a guy the Hawks will have their eyes on when they are finally on the clock on June 25th. Portis was selected as this year’s SEC Player of the Year. He averaged 17.5 points and 8.9 rebounds during his sophomore season at Arkansas. Portis uses his long wingspan and athleticism to make plays on both sides of the ball.He was dominant on both. He is strong inside, and can use his physicality to score and get rebounds. If he is available at pick number 15, he could be a perfect option for the Hawks. The Hawks lack size. There are rumors...Continue reading »

Braves fans can finally take a sigh of relief. Get what I did there? Trevor Cahill, who has been absolutely abysmal this season, has finally been designated by assignment by the Braves. Cahill was brought on board right before Opening Day, as the Braves decided that Eric Stults and Wandy Rodriguez were too similar to share the back end of the rotation. The Braves opted to keep Stults, and traded for Cahill with the Diamondbacks, eating a little more than half of his salary. Rodriguez has pitched flawlessly for the Rangers, and now Cahill and Stults are both gone. Williams...Continue reading »
