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, [...]
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; [...]
Atlanta Braves: (42-31; Leader) The Braves were swept by the Chicago White Sox, and will now face the Detroit Tigers. The prime pitching matchup in this series comes on Sunday, with Tommy Hanson vs. Justin Verlander. Philadelphia Phillies: (38-32; -2.5) The Phillies swept the Cleveland Indians, and will stay in Philadelphia to play the Blue Jays, however the Blue Jays will be the home team. Good luck with that. Roy Halladay faces his old teammates [...]
Atlanta Braves: (39-28; Leader) The Braves took two out of three from the Tampa Bay Rays, and will play three against the Kansas City Royals. Kris Medlen vs. Zach Greinke is the matchup on Saturday. Philadelphia Phillies: (34-30; -3.5) The Phillies took two of three from the New York Yankees, and will face the Minnesota Twins. Come to think of it, I’ve always wanted to see how Mauer and Morneau hit at CPB. Florida Marlins: [...]
Have you seen the updated vote totals for the National League All-Stars? Apparently, Phillies fans have been stuffing the ballot boxes en masse. According to mlb.com, as of June 15, seven of their eight starters rank in the top five in receiving votes at their respective positions. Only Raul Ibanez (who was hitting .250 with 4 HR and 28 RBI entering last night’s game) failed to rank in the top five, coming in at #8 [...]
Atlanta Braves: (37-27; Leader) The Braves took two of three from the AL Central leading Minnesota Twins to keep their lead over the Mets at 1.5 games.

Philadelphia Phillies: (32-29; -3.5) The Phillies lost two of three to the Boston Red Sox, getting outscored 25-9 in the process. Jamie Moyer was [...]
Atlanta Braves (35-26; Leader) The Braves had an interesting four-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks, winning the two highest scoring ones, and losing the two lowest scoring. In fact, Aaron Heilman got the win in relief for the D-Backs on Wednesday. The Braves will face the first-place Minnesota Twins, with tonight’s pitching matchup being Tim Hudson vs. Francisco Liriano. Philadelphia Phillies (31-27; -2.5) Philadelphia split their rain-shortened two-game series with the Marlins. In a rematch [...]
Atlanta Braves: (32-22; Leader) The Braves have been surging, winning 9 in a row, and sweeping the Phillies. Troy Glaus and Martin Prado have been on fire lately. The Braves will head to Los Angeles to play the Dodgers for four. BTW: I started writing the NL East Report last June, and this is the first time that the Braves have had the designation “Leader.” Philadelphia Phillies: (28-24; -3) Epic Phail. The Phillies were swept [...]
