When I heard this morning, that the Atlanta Braves did not include second baseman Dan Uggla on their National League Divisional Series roster, my first inclination was that he was hurt. He wasn’t. The Braves did not include the three-time All-Star on their 25-man roster because of his .179 batting average – the lowest among major league qualifiers this season. Uggla, now 33, hit 22 home runs this season for the Braves, which ranked third on the team, and […]
Here is a story I wrote for The Tablet newspaper of the Diocese of Brooklyn, N.Y. We will always remember Mike Piazza‘s “Healing Power of a Swing,” but it turns out the Braves’ pitcher that surrendered the home run, Steve Karsay, grew up just 15 minutes from Shea Stadium. Here’s what Karsay had to say about that whole experience. Originally published in The Tablet newspaper. No one will soon forget how our nation was devastated […]

Well, some days you’re the fly and some days… you’re the windshield. The Braves came to hit today and Daisuke Matsuzaka gave us a typical performance in the Mets’ 13-5 loss to the Braves. Atlanta got to Dice-K before he could even record an out when Freddie Freeman doubled in Justin Upton and Jordan Schafer. Just like that it was 2-0 in favor of the Braves, and they wouldn’t really look back. Matsuzaka helped himself out […]

Lucas Duda is already back on the bench as the hot-hitting Josh Satin slides […]
This week in Mets baseball started out fairly well. Despite dropping the last two games of a four game set in San Diego, the Mets made the most of their make up game in Minnesota with a 6-1 win and, the following day, put up a performance that seemed to be a promising sign: scoring four unanswered runs off of Brandon Beachy, one of the Braves’ most promising young pitching arms. Unfortunately, the Mets’ bats […]
