Atlanta Braves: (66-48; Leader) The Braves took two of three from the Houston Astros, and will open up a weekend series with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Mike Minor made his debut against the Astros, going 6 IP with 4 Runs, 3 Earned. The big news out of Atlanta, though, is that we may have seen the last of Larry “Chipper” Jones. Jones, expected to retire after the season, suffered a torn ACL, ending his season. […]
Atlanta Braves: (62-46; Leader) The Braves took two of three from the Mets and beat Tim Lincecum and the Giants last night. The Braves will continue their series with the Giants this weekend. The Braves will retire Tom Glavine’s number 47 tonight. Philadelphia Phillies: (60-48; -2) The Phillies placed Ryan Howard on the DL and haven’t missed a beat. They’ve won four in a row, including a sweep of the Florida Marlins. Florida Marlins: (53-55; […]
Starting tonight, the Mets begin a very critical road trip featuring two 3-game series against their two chief division rivals; the Philadelphia Phillies and the Atlanta Braves. The next seven days will be a “make or break” period for the team and could determine their ultimate fate at the end of the season. It was expected that after their last disastrous 2-9 west coast road trip, that the Mets would get themselves back on track […]
Atlanta Braves: (58-43; Leader) The Braves remain in talks for maybe a bat or a reliever, but it’s likely that they stand pat. The Braves dropped two of three to the Nationals, and have been particularly inconsistent since the Break, going 6-7. They play the Reds this weekend. Philadelphia Phillies: (56-46; -2.5) Well, by now you’ve heard about Roy Oswalt going to Philadelphia. Oswalt makes his debut tonight against the Nationals. Like they need the […]
Atlanta Braves: (53-36; Leader) The Braves took the first game from the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday, and have their rotation set up for Hanson, Hudson, and Lowe the weekend. In case you missed the All-Star Game, Brian McCann won MVP for his go-ahead double that put the National League ahead. Nate McLouth continues his rehab stint in AAA. Philadelphia Phillies: (47-41; -5.5) The Phillies lost 12-6 to the Cubs yesterday. Nothing much to report here, […]
With last night’s 2-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants, the Mets now find themselves five games back of the front-running Atlanta Braves. It looks like a fight to the finish may be shaping up for the NL Wild Card this season. Three NL East teams currently occupy the top seven spots for the Wild Card; the Mets, Phillies and Marlins. Joel Sherman of the NY Post writes about the Braves latest acquisition, Alex Gonzalez, and how […]
The Mets are going to be playing for first place this weekend. Not against the Phillies, but against a resurgent Braves team that is making it feel like the early part of the decade when these two teams were battling for NL East dominance. And if Jonathan Niese and the Mets can take the rubber game against the Reds tonight, it won’t matter what the Braves do in Philly–the Mets will be 1 or 2 […]
Atlanta Braves: (46-33; Leader) The Braves took two of three from the Washington Nationals and will open a three game series with the Marlins this weekend. J Hey was placed on the DL with a thumb injury, while he was 2nd in the All-Star voting in the OF. If he is not ready by then, the replacement would be at the manager’s (Charlie Manuel) discretion. More on this in the next paragraph. Philadelphia Phillies: (41-36; […]
Remember a few years back when the Braves were rolling to 14 straight division titles, and the Mets seemingly lost 80% of their games against Atlanta? Thankfully time and Atlanta’s mediocrity for a few years has evened that back out, but now the Mets have a new regular nemesis–the Florida Marlins. The Mets, who lost 11 of 18 games against Florida last season, are so far 4-8 against them this season, including losses in Puerto […]
