Philadelphia Phillies: (11-7; Leader) The Phillies dropped two of three to the Arizona Diamondbacks, and will head to San Francisco for a three game set with the Giants. Roy Halladay will start Monday against Jonathan Sanchez. Lincecum will start Thursday, likely against Cole Hamels. Florida Marlins: (10-9; -1.5) The Marlins dropped two of three to the Colorado Rockies, including a split of Saturday’s doubleheader, and will face the hot San Diego Padres. Jorge Cantu’s hit […]
Philadelphia Phillies: (10-5; Leader) The Phillies took two out of three from the Atlanta Braves. However, they did lose JA Happ to the DL with a strained flexor in his left arm. JC Romero was activated, while Nelson Figueroa will take his spot in the rotation. The Phillies begin a six-game west coast road trip with three in Arizona. Florida Marlins: (9-7; -1.5) The Florida Marlins dropped two of three to the Houston Astros, and […]
Seeing highlights of Nationals’ pitcher Stephen Strasburg from yesterday’s game against Detroit bummed me out just a little. I love watching great pitchers do their thing, and it’s especially exciting to see young pitchers like Strasburg break into the bigs and blow hitters away. But I’m just a bit bummed out, because he’s in the Mets’ division and will most likely be facing our team a lot over the next few years. I’m bummed out […]
The Atlanta Braves had a successful 2009 season, finishing with a record of 86 and 76. They have made numerous moves this winter in anticipation of the 2010 season. Maybe these moves will benefit them for the long term, but for 2010, I don’t think they have improved their ball club enough. Starting Pitching: Last year’s best starter Javier Vazquez was traded, so that in itself weakens the Braves rotation. The starting five is still deep […]
And yet it seems that we’re in the same spot. October 17, 1999. Ten years ago last Saturday. Robin Ventura gave Mets fans one of the more unusual defining moments in team history. A “grand slam single” in the bottom of the 15th inning to break a tied game and send the Mets to Game 6 to face the Atlanta Braves one more time. As fate would have it, the Mets would fall short in […]
The Mets will soon end yet another long season fraught with futility against their NL East rival, the Atlanta Braves. This time, the Mets finished their season series with the Braves by losing their last eight contests against them. The current spate of losing to Chief Knockahoma’s former employer is the tip of the iceberg. The big picture transcends games, but sadly (and maddeningly) extends to 18 years (1991-present). Realistically, a rivalry is defined as a “competition.” However, ”it takes two Tango.” Ever […]
Atlanta Braves: (8-2; -5) The Braves swept the Nationals and will face the Marlins for three this weekend. Atlanta is in strong position to steal the Wild Card from the Colorado Rockies, as the Braves finish with four at home against the Nationals while the Rockies finish with three against the Milwaukee Brewers followed by three against the Los Angeles Dodgers. They are currently separated by 2.5 games. Florida Marlins: (5-5; -7.5) The Marlins were […]
The Atlanta Braves have announced that longtime manager Bobby Cox will return for the 2010 season and then retire from managing. Cox will then move to a consulting job for the team for five years afterward. Cox will retire from the Braves as one of the most accomplished managers in baseball history. Cox managed the Braves from 1978 to 1981, and then returned to the Braves bench in 1990. The Braves proceeded to win every […]
Atlanta Braves: (8-2; 7.5) The Atlanta Braves completed a three game sweep, and will take on the Philadelphia Phillies. Sunday’s pitching matchup looks to be interesting, as Tommy Hanson will be up against Cliff Lee. The Braves hot streak has put them 4.5 games back of the Colorado Rockies? Florida Marlins: (6-4; 8) The Florida Marlins took two of three from the St. Louis Cardinals, and lost the opener Thursday to the Cincinnati Reds. The […]
