On Miller’s struggles, Braves’ losing and Gonzalez’s feeling of support

10 hours agoSports : Jeff Schultz

On May 17, Shelby Miller was 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA with the Braves, Jason Heyward was hitting.244 after a 0-for-4, two-strikeout night for the St. Louis Cardinals and Braves executive John Hart probably...

Georgia, Auburn picked to play for SEC title (so it must be true!)

yesterdaySports : Jeff Schultz

Everybody makes predictions. I’m not convinced that what every sports information (media relations) director from the 14 SEC schools believe is any more valid than what the comprehensive researchers at Weekend Predictions, Inc., believe,...

Post-Ferry era starts with 2 picks, 2 trades and … Tim Hardaway Jr.?

5 days agoSports : Jeff Schultz

New Hawks owner Tony Ressler said Thursday that he chose not to keep Danny Ferry as general manager in part because he felt comfortable with the organizational structure and the three decision-makers who ran things...

Congratulations, Mr. Ressler: Here are the keys to your basketball team. Now please change the locks. The sale of the Hawks from the Atlanta Whining Toddlers on Parade to Tony Ressler was rubber-stamped by the NBA on...

Heyward finding rhythm — would Braves consider re-signing him?

last weekSports : Jeff Schultz

When Braves executives John Hart and John Coppolella began their offseason radical makeover of the lineup last November by trading Jason Heyward to St. Louis, I wrote they were taking a monumental risk. It wasn’t...

Danny Ferry’s exit from Hawks isn’t just about what he said

last weekSports : Jeff Schultz

The Hawks’ buyout of Danny Ferry’s contract will be officially announced today. I understand the consternation in the fan base over this issue — a local team effectively shoving a talented general manager...

Personal Journey: Addiction, recovery and my son Josh

last weekSports : Jeff Schultz

The most important story I’ve ever written wasn’t about a college football game. It isn’t about an athlete, a team, a trade, an injury, an ownership, a stadium issue, an Olympics or the NCAA. The...

Bethancourt’s mistakes behind plate lead to two San Diego runs

2 weeks agoSports : Jeff Schultz

This shouldn’t be taken as a suggestion that one of the Braves’ most touted prospects is going to be a bust. But should the Braves be worried about Christian Bethancourt? It’s one thing for Bethancourt to...

Braves’ bullpen saves the day (wait, did that just happen?)

3 weeks agoSports : Jeff Schultz

Starter gets hammered. Bullpen saves the day. How many times can we watch the same game over and over and … Wait a minute — who changed the channel? The Braves, who have used a mind-numbing 17 pitchers...

Woods shows us his worst (85, 302); we’ve seen last of his best

3 weeks agoSports : Jeff Schultz

We can’t be certain if Tiger Woods will ever win another major (I vote: no), or win five more majors to break Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18 (please) or for that matter whether he’ll win...

Hawks’ most likely scenario: Danny Ferry’s resignation

3 weeks agoSports : Jeff Schultz

The Hawks are nearing a sale and it follows that the Danny Ferry situation is likely nearly a resolution. As Chris Vivlamore reported late Thursday, the sale of the Hawks (and Philips Arena operating rights)...

Short takes: Carroll also had turf toe, would’ve been out 3-4 weeks

last monthSports : Jeff Schultz

By now you know the Hawks were drilled in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals 118-88 Tuesday night and were swept out of the series by the Cleveland Cavaliers. To go to MyAJC...

Hawks finally confirm Korver needs surgery — but nothing else

last monthSports : Jeff Schultz

Perhaps its best if we just get our Hawks medical reports from DeMarre Carroll from now on. Following Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals Sunday night, Carroll was discussing a play in which teammate Al...

Short takes: Horford deserved a foul but not an ejection

last monthSports : Jeff Schultz

CLEVELAND — The Hawks may have gained more respect in defeat Sunday night than they did in any of their eight postseason wins. The end result of a 114-111 overtime win is the same —...

Bazemore in, Carroll still standing and Hawks say they’re ready

last monthSports : Jeff Schultz

CLEVELAND — The Hawks are two losses away from the offseason. They’re also four wins away from reaching the NBA finals, and as illogical as that scenario sounds — defeating LeBron James and Cleveland in...

These really were the throwback Hawks — and that’s not good

last monthSports : Jeff Schultz

The Hawks wore their throwback uniforms Friday night, a decision that didn’t quite have the desired inspirational effect they had hoped for. They threw themselves back into an era when they didn’t belong anywhere near...

Hawks’ opening loss not nearly as big as losing DeMarre Carroll

last monthSports : Jeff Schultz

There’s still no word this morning on the prognosis for DeMarre Carroll, who suffered what appeared to be a serious knee injury in the Hawks’ Eastern Conference finals series-opening loss to Cleveland Wednesday night....

Game day: Hawks need Korver to find scoring touch

last monthSports : Jeff Schultz

Welcome to the Eastern Conference finals. (It’s the first time I’ve typed those words in Atlanta, since, well, ever.) If you missed it, click this link to go to a full column on MyAJC about...

Odds say Cleveland, but when have odds ever said Hawks?

last monthSports : Jeff Schultz

Seven months ago, the guys with big buildings on Las Vegas Blvd. set the Hawks’ over/under at 41 victories in the regular season. They undershot their total by 19, like pretty much the rest of...

last monthSports : Jeff Schultz

So what’s the bigger surprise: That the Hawks have made it to the NBA’s Final Four or that Josh Smith has reached the same previously unfamiliar height? Smith, the former polarizing Hawks’ forward whose NBA career...
