Whether you agreed or disagreed with the Braves’ offseason trades involving Jason Heyward, Justin Upton, Evan Gattis and Craig Kimbrel, there at least were reasonable arguments supporting all of the deals. Heyward and Upton were...

Will Frank Beamer be next coach to get ‘Bowden treatment’?

last weekSports : Jeff Schultz

PINEHURST, N.C. — Frank Beamer doesn’t look good, doesn’t sound good and certainly isn’t enjoying the unanimous support he used to in Blacksburg, Va. But, hey, outside of that, everything is great. The 68-year-old, long-time coach.....

The Braves are 42-47 at the All-Star break. It’s the first time they are below.500 at the All-Star break since 2009 (43-45) and represents their worst won-lost percentage in the first half (.472) since...

Braves may have something special in Manny Banuelos

last monthSports : Jeff Schultz

While the Braves are losing series, struggling just to get back to.500 and projecting little hope of making the playoffs, they can remember what happened Thursday night as a positive sign for the future...

Hawks snap judgments: Splitter helps; Carroll couldn’t be kept at that price

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

last monthSports : 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

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