Our Braves 2022 Free Agent Wish List series continues today to look at what’s becoming a loaded position group — the outfield. Recently I kicked off this column by examining the six or seven infielders the Braves should be interested in this offseason, though most of those players were depth pieces as much of Atlanta’s
The Braves are world champs! That still hasn’t quite sunk in yet. But now that the 2021 season is officially over, it’s time to start looking ahead. We’ll discuss the 2022 free agent class in more detail as the offseason progresses, but first it’s probably best to at least identify which players the Braves should
It’s been more than two decades — 22 years to be exact — since the Braves played in a World Series, but as it approached midnight in Atlanta on Saturday night, they finally did it, defeating the LA Dodgers 4-2 in Game 6 of the NLCS. Last night’s game felt a bit like destiny from the get-go.
As if the Dodgers already didn’t have enough injuries to worry with, late Friday night veteran starting pitcher Max Scherzer was scratched from tonight’s Game 6 NLCS start and replaced by Walker Buehler. Max Scherzer won’t start Game 6 of the NLCS because of arm fatigue, putting the Dodgers in a bind https://t.co/3Fe2Si7acn — Post
It’s ironic just how similar this year’s NLCS is to last year’s. Just like in 2020, through the first four games, the Braves lead this 3-1. In fact, the series featured a big Game 4 win for Atlanta 4 in both 2020 and 2021 as they defeated LA 10-2 last year and 9-2 on Wednesday night.
With his trio of postseason starters already used up, Braves manager Brian Snitker has opted to run with the bullpen for Wednesday’s Game 4 against the Dodgers. In last night’s gut-punch of a loss, veteran Charlie Morton labored through a five-inning start that required 96 pitches, meaning his next outing may not come again until
It’s almost as if the Braves are being punished for all the good fortune they received in the first two games. Despite a 5-2 lead in the eighth last night, Atlanta spoiled a potential 3-0 series lead, and following a four-run explosion by LA, their LCS advantage was slashed to just one game. It didn’t
Last Saturday night, in front of over 41,000 fans at Truist Park, Austin Riley came to the plate in Game 1 of the NLCS for an at-bat he’ll remember for the rest of his life. Tied 2-2 in the bottom of the ninth, with just one out left, the Braves third baseman walked it off
The excitement of the Braves last pair of wins over the Dodgers shouldn’t cause us to overlook one very concerning development: Atlanta can’t stop the Dodgers run game. Game 1 wasn’t too bad. Both the Braves and Dodgers tallied two stolen bases apiece, with each side featuring a swipe that literally everyone at Truist Park
The July 31 trade deadline has been part of baseball in its current form since 1986 (before then, it was on June 15 every year), and since then, there have been countless blockbuster deals, giving teams the extra oomph as they contend down the regular season stretch. For the Braves, there have been many questionable moves made
