Hawks: AJ Griffin can be a championship piece

Last night, the Atlanta Hawks snagged AJ Griffin with the 16th pick in the NBA Draft. The 6’6”, 222-pound forward out of Duke brings a lot to the table, including elite three-point shooting and lockdown defense. Welcome to Atlanta, AJ! I was shocked that Griffin fell to 16. Most pundits had the 18-year-old in the

Braves: Charlie Morton is having a strange season

Charlie Morton is having an uncharacteristically rough year, at least on the surface. Morton was charged four earned runs his last time out against Pittsburgh, but look at the rest of his line — 12 strikeouts, only five hits surrendered, and a walk. It’s certainly not a shabby performance, and Charlie looked dominant for most

Three takeaways from the Braves streak

14 games. Since the start of June, the Braves have yet to lose. Last night, it was Austin Riley who fueled the offense with two bombs, moving him into second place in Major League Baseball with 18 homers. Here are some of my biggest takeaways from the series and the streak as a whole: Power

Could the Braves trade for a second baseman?

While the Braves’ win streak was extended to an impressive 12 games last night, there’s not too much to celebrate about. Star second baseman Ozzie Albies sustained a left foot fracture that will likely keep him out a while. Obviously, this is a significant loss for Atlanta — Albies is an annual Gold Glove candidate,

What will it take for the Hawks to become championship contenders?

We’re in the midst of the Finals, with the Celtics and Warriors duking it out for NBA supremacy while the Hawks sit at home following a disappointing 2021-2022 campaign. Changes are coming in Atlanta; Travis Schlenk has made that very clear since the end of the season, but just how drastic do those changes need

Braves: Could Ronald Acuña still win the MVP?

Over the past ten games, Ronald Acuña Jr. has been on a tear, slashing .368/.432/.684 with seven RBIs and two stolen bases. This monster stretch has made me start to wonder: could Ronnie claw his way into the NL MVP conversation despite missing 29 games so far? *Note: Stats are from before Wednesday’s games Baselines

Braves: Could Miguel Andujar become a trade target?

According to Ken Rosenthal and Héctor Gómez, Miguel Andújar has requested a trade out of New York. It makes sense that he’d want to leave. The Yankees crowded outfield group has deprived Andujar of playing time since his promising 2018 rookie campaign, appearing in only 90 games.  Could the Braves get Andújar? While it’s not

Braves: First impressions of Michael Harris

After the Braves made a surprising move on May 28 by calling up their top prospect, Michael Harris, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But whatever my expectations were for him, he’s far exceeded them through his first nine major-league games. In 34 at-bats, Harris has collected nine hits and three RBIs. Three of those

Braves offense flashes what is possible in blowout of Colorado

One of the overarching storylines and points of frustration for fans has been the Braves’ woes with runners in scoring position. Everyone is sick of the unproductive outs that seem so common for this year’s squad. However, the Braves seem to be flipping the script. In a 13-6 victory over the Rockies, Atlanta went 9-for-19
