Braves Top Dodgers 4-3 In NLDS Game 2: Mike Minor Helps Atlanta Tie Series
Huffington Post - over 3 years
ATLANTA -- ATLANTA (AP) — Mike Minor slammed his fist into his glove after getting out of a jam with a strikeout. Luis Avilan pumped his arm wildly after escaping another mess with a huge double play. Andrelton Simmons hollered after a neat tag in the ninth. The Braves were fired up for this one, with good reason. Atlanta got the win it had to have before heading to Los Angeles. Minor pitched six strong innings, Jason Heyward had a two-run single and the Braves flashed some nifty plays in the field, holding off the Dodgers 4-3 on Friday night to even the NL division series at one game apiece. In a postseason already marked by defensive miscues all over the place, including shaky plays by the Braves in Game 1, Atlanta's defense came through by turning three double plays — none more crucial than the one Avilan started in the seventh to escape the inning with a 2-1 lead intact. Heyward came through in the bottom half with a two-run single. Good thing for the Braves, too. Hanley ...

Braves Ship Pitcher To L.A.
Huffington Post - about 4 years
ATLANTA — The Braves traded Tommy Hanson to the Los Angeles Angels for former closer Jordan Walden on Friday, clearing a spot in the Atlanta rotation for Julio Teheran, Randal Delgado or another young starter. Hanson has seen a decrease in his velocity as he battled rotator cuff tendinitis in 2011 and a lower back strain in 2012. Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said the 26-year-old was a consistent winner in four seasons with the Braves and had no arm troubles this year. "It's a good risk on a pitcher we really believe in," Dipoto said. Hanson was 13-10 this year, setting a career high in wins, but his ERA climbed for the third straight season to a career-worst 4.48. The right-hander was 45-32 with the Braves. Asked whether he was hoping for a bounce-back season from Hanson, Dipoto said his scouts saw Hanson performing on a level consistent with his career. "I don't know that we're necessarily looking for a bounce back," Dipoto said. "He won 13 games. ...

LIVE: Can Medlen stake his claim in Braves’ rotation?
ajc - over 4 years
Kris Medlen makes his second of at least three starts today for Braves, but will he stay in rotation? (Scott Cunningham/Getty Images) Hello. It’s hot. (Old journalism training: Don’t bury the lead.) The Braves close out what has been a successful home stand (7-2) against Houston, and what happens in today’s game against Houston could impact their starting rotation as much as it doesn’t the National League East standings. Kris Medlen will make his second start after winning 7-1 over Miami last week. In his first start in two years — Tommy John surgery followed by relief work — Medlen allowed only one run and four hits and needed only 57 pitches to get through five innings. (A lengthy rain delay ended his night.) He is scheduled to make at least one more start next Saturday at New York, but then the Braves will have a decision to make. The rotation currently looks like this: Tim Hudson, Ben Sheets, Paul Maholm, Mike Minor and Medlen. Tommy Hanson, who went on the disabled list ...

Braves vs. Red Sox: Live Stream, Injuries, Pitching Matchups and Fantasy Preview
Bleacher Report - over 4 years
Two of Major League Baseball's most inconsistent teams are prepared to battle as the Atlanta Braves pay a visit to the Boston Red Sox. It marks the last interleague series of the season for both sides. The biggest problem for Atlanta has been uncharacteristically bad starting pitching. Instead of being the team's foundation like it has been so many times in the past, Tommy Hanson and Tim Hudson are the Braves' only reliable starters. Neither will start in this series. Boston has been dealing with similar problems to its rotation, but the larger concern is injuries. The most notable ones being to Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford, who would normally be two key cogs in the lineup. They need to get healthy by the All-Star break. Let's take a look at all the vital information for the series, preview the first game and take a look at some of the key players as the Braves and Red Sox face off.   When: Friday, June 22 at 7:10 p.m. ET Where: Fenway Park in Boston, Mass.

Why Criticizing Fredi Gonzalez Is So Much Fun
SB Nation- Atlanta - over 4 years
In order to make 162 games seem interesting, we need disasters like the eighth inning on Tuesday night. It's hard to get too excited about any particular game during a baseball season. Why get exorcised about a loss when there are 161 games just like it on the schedule? This juxtaposition has been especially strong for me this week, as I have spent my evenings flipping back and forth between the Braves-Yankees games and my recordings of Euro '12 matches (and with the Euros' solid TV ratings, I no longer have to apologize as if I'm the only American with interest in that event). The latter is a tournament where the winning team will play six matches and just one slip-up in the group stage can be fatal. (As Italy learned eight years ago and might learn again on Monday, a team can go home without losing a game.) Every game takes on major importance, which by contrast makes the process of getting myself excited for a Braves game even harder. That said, the loss on Tuesd ...

LIVE: Ailing Braves try to end skid against Strasburg
ajc - almost 5 years
The Braves hope to break out of a slump today but will face Washington's young fireballer, Stephen Strasburg (AP photo). The Braves are not completely devoid of positive signs these days. It’s just that after starting the season 22-13 and beginning to take the form of a wrecking ball, there has been a market correction. And the question is: How ugly will this get? Losers of five straight games and faced with the prospects of missing Chipper Jones for another several games, the Braves face the Washington Nationals today (4 p.m.). Mike Minor (2-4, 6.96) — who allowed four home runs in his last start and generally has been a mess for the past month — will be opposed by Stephen Strasburg (4-1, 2.21). So much for positive foreshadowing. It’s only late May. The Braves are two games out of first place, and trail Mike Minor has allowed 31 runs and 11 homers in his last five starts.

Announcing The Atlanta Braves MVPs & LVPs For April
SB Nation- Atlanta - almost 5 years
A look at who shined (and who struggled) the most in a wild month of April. The Atlanta Braves got their 2012 campaign off to a fine start with a record of 14-9 and currently sit in second place in the National League East. Despite in inauspicious four-game losing streak to begin the season against inferior competition, the Braves have battled back to win 14 of their last 19 games. Let's take a look back on the month of April and see who stood out -- for better and for worse.

Minor’s 8-inning gem vs. Arizona latest sign of progress
ajc - almost 5 years
PHOENIX – A little over a year from the day he looked so frazzled in a fill-in start against Milwaukee, Mike Minor pitched like a savvy veteran Thursday while working eight strong innings against Arizona in the hitter-friendly confines of Chase Field. While striking out nine, walking none and allowing just five hits and two runs (one earned) in eight innings of a 10-2 win, it appeared as if the left-hander from Vanderbilt may have officially arrived, with all of 26 major league starts under his belt. “He’s got the capability of doing that every night,” Braves catcher Brian McCann said. “He’s got great command, great stuff, can go both sides of the plate — he’s special. He’s a guy that keeps getting better and better.” Coupled with his 7-1/3 innings of two-hit ball in Saturday’s win against Milwaukee, the series-opening performance against Arizona made Minor 2-0 with a 0.59 ERA and .143 opponents’ average in his past two starts, with one walk …

2012 Fantasy Baseball Round-Up: Curtis Granderson, Matt Kemp, Drew Stubbs and More
Opposing Views - almost 5 years
Curtis Granderson had a pretty good week in just one night.  The Yankees' center fielder had the fantasy performance of the season, going 5-for-5 with three homers, three runs scored, and four RBIs. He began the day hitting .208 with three home runs and six RBIs before boosting his average by .075 and doubling his home-run total and nearly doubling his RBI total.  If there was a disappointment, it was that after homering in his first three at-bats, he failed twice to hit a fourth homer and instead singled each time.  It was a another ho-hum performance from Matt Kemp, who was 2-for-5 with his seventh homer of the year for the Dodgers.  Cincinnati's Drew Stubbs broke out of a season-long slump by going 3-for-5 with his first home run of the season. Brandon Phillips, Jay Bruce, and Ryan Ludwick are also struggling Reds who had two hits against Adam Wainright, whose ERA is at 9.88 after allowing four earned runs in five innings. ...

2012 Fantasy Baseball: Top 75 Pitchers
Opposing Views - almost 5 years
This article is long.  Eff the intro.  I’ll make euphemisms about the pitching rubber and condoms next week.  For now, here is the extra-long first edition of The Rubber 2012. 1. Roy Halladay (Philadelphia Philles, ADP among SP: 1) 2. Cliff Lee (Philadelphia Phillies, ADP: 4) 3. Clayton Kershaw (Los Angeles Dodgers, ADP: 3) 4. Justin Verlander (Detroit Tigers, ADP: 2) 5. Zack Greinke (Milwaukee Brewers, ADP: 11) By a couple measures, Greinke was the best pitcher in baseball last year as he led the league in both xFIP and K/9.  He also had an excellent walk rate with a 2.36 BB/9 (4.47 K/BB) and a nice groundball rate of 47.3%.  Unfortunately, his ERA (3.83) didn’t match up with his 2.56 xFIP.  But the reasons for that were out of his control.  His BABIP was on the unlucky side at .318, his strand rate was a touch below league average at 69.8%, and his HR/FB rate was an inflated 13.6% (league average is about 10%).  There is no re ...
