Does Hudson Injury Change Braves World Series Chances?

On Wednesday night, every Atlanta Braves fan had their heart drop all the way into their stomach. Seeing Tim Hudson in so much pain is a memory that Atlanta fans wish they could get rid of. Hudson is the veteran, and the rock that was supposed to lead this Braves team to the World Series. Now what? Is it time to go into complete panic mode and think the season is over?

Braves Gonzalez Trails Only Rangers and Yankees

Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez, like virtually all major league managers, endures his share of criticism. That will probably not change until he wins a World Series championship.  Even then it is hard to please many fans and media types.  Nonetheless, the fact remains that Gonzalez is taking a mid-tier payroll team and on a day-to-day regular season basis is racking up an impressive number ... »

2013 Atlanta Braves Expectations

As everyone knows fan is short for fanatic, which in most cases can dilute our perception of reality.  I think it is good sometimes to step away from the ledge, take the proverbial colored glasses off, and meet reality face to face.  With that being said, I want to talk about realistic expectations for this year’s Atlanta Braves.

Will Fredi Gonzalez Exceed Bobby Cox?

Will Fredi Gonzalez Exceed Bobby Cox?

We’re only two years into Fredi Gonzalez‘s tenure, so we’re nowhere near the point where we can assess how he compares to Bobby Cox.  I’m sure the Braves organization, as well as Braves fans, are hoping that Gonzalez will ultimately be better than Cox. Just as good would be fine, too. If Gonzalez can prove to be a better manager than Bobby Cox in the long-term, Braves fans ... »
