Braves Journal Thought I’d point this out… Merv has gotten my older one-page article done for the original version of the site up. The page above is the index. I like the chat wraps (the work, primarily, of Alex R., except for the Brady Anderson edition); you may enjoy seeing some of my more insane […]

John Scheurholz should be fired. It’s that simple. Today, he acquired shortstop Rey Sanchez from the Royals for two fairly marginal prospects, 2B Aleyjandro Machado and RP Brad Voyles. Who he gave up is not really that important. The odds are neither will ever be particularly effective major leaguers. Machado was blocked in the Braves […]

The Braves took three of four from Montreal while the Phillies split four with the Mets and the Marlins lost three of four to Cincinnati. The Braves now lead the East by three games, their largest lead of the season, and are seven up on Florida. The victory wasn’t without its cost, as the Braves […]

The Braves managed to lose two of three to the Reds, after winning all three games the teams played in Cincinnati (the season opener and two games last week). That’s not all that surprising, since the Reds are OK on the road but horrible at home, and the Braves are one of the majors’ best […]

The Braves took two of three from the Expos, the stars being Brian Jordan (who homered in each win) and Mark DeRosa (who went 2-4 in each win, including a game-winning home run in the tenth Saturday). The Phillies have split the first two with the Mets and are tied in the third game; the […]

7/20/2001: The Braves are in first place by two games, easily their best showing of the year. They swept a two-game series with the Reds in Cincinnati on the strength of pitching — holding the Reds to only one run in each game — and the hitting of (of all people) Keith Lockhart. Lockhart hit […]

The Braves actually lost two of three to the woeful Devil Rays, largely on the strength of Fred “Chicago is not my kind of town” McGriff, who hit three homers in the series. Greg Maddux bailed them out with a six-hit shutout tonight. Both Odalis Perez and Jason Marquis struggled, and with Kevin Millwood scheduled […]

The Braves took two of three from the Orioles while the Phillies lost two of three with the Blue Jays, so the teams are now tied for first place. It’s actually kind of disappointing; the Braves won the first two of the Baltimore series and had a 1-0 lead with John Burkett going in the […]

Actual games that count in the standings start tonight, with Greg Maddux going against the Orioles in Atlanta. Nothing yet on the trade front; Fred McGriff was going to Chicago but that appears to have fallen through, and he might still come to Atlanta. Jason Giambi may be put on the block, but the price […]

7/8/2001: The Braves won two of three from the Red Sox, but they may have lost Rafael Furcal. Furcal’s left shoulder, which has been a problem for a couple of years, apparently totally separated on a slide Friday night. He will have an MRI tomorrow but the belief is he will probably need to have […]
