Justin Upton: All-Star or Enigma?

Justin Upton joined the Atlanta Braves last off-season and high expectations accompanied his arrival.  Upton started out on fire in April, after that he had a mediocre season.  Overall, his season numbers ended up very close to his career averages, good but not great. The Upton and Chris Johnson for Martin Prado and Randall Delgado plus prospects trade has long been considered a win for Atlanta.  ... »

Pastornicky Making Case for Braves Bench Job

Conventional wisdom is that Evan Gattis, Jordan Schafer, or Jose Constanza, will win the fifth spot on the Braves bench.  Gattis has tremendous power, Schafer has speed and can play all three outfield positions, and Constanza has proven that he can be productive in the major leagues. But with the multiple position capability of Martin Prado no longer on the roster, could Braves manager Fredi Gonza... »

McCann didn’t have a “Brian McCann” type season at the plate in 2012, when he hit only .230, with 20 homers, 67 runs-batted-in, a .300 on-base-percentage, and .399 slug... »
