  • Both Uptons injured in Braves’ loss to Reds

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "The buzz of Freddie Freeman’s All-Star vote wore off quickly as injuries to the Braves outfield took a nightmarish turn Friday night.

  • Could The 2013 Braves Have Baseball's First All-20/20 Outfield?

    Talking Chop "The Braves' outfield of Justin Upton, B.J. Upton, and Jason Heyward is perhaps the most exciting trio in baseball. All three possess a rare combination of power and speed. In fact, each one already has at least one 20-homer/20-steal season on his resume. Granted, 20/20 seasons are a lot more..." March 15

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Two-thirds of the Braves’ new-look outfield — and surely one of the great intrigues of baseball’s spring — was born here in the pine-and-backwater-scented lowlands at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay.
