Braves: The case for bringing back Mark Melancon

Today we continue our series making the case to bring back each of the Braves set to hit the free-agent market this offseason, this time looking at 35-year-old right-handed reliever Mark Melancon.

Braves: Why the NLCS will end tonight

Boy, do things quickly change. Just 24 hours ago, the LA Dodgers were supposedly in control of the NLCS, having just completed a massacre, beating the Braves 15-3 Wednesday night thanks to an 11-run first inning in Game 3.

Braves: Pitching dominates again in Game 1

The stage was set for an offensive showdown Monday night, and though it took more than three hours for the Braves to finally break all the way through, the offense exploded with a four-run inning in the ninth to win 5-1 and jump ahead 1-0 in the NLCS.  First baseman Freddie Freeman got the momentum
