The Long Autumn

Coppy’s out. The Nats are out. The new spring training complex is in. There’s not a whole lot to do till February other than root against the Yankees and Dodgers. Starting after the World Series, we’ll do some offseason content — the usual WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? posts, player previews, SEC football, music, and so […]

Braves 8, Marlins 5

Fin, fin, fin. The lights come up on another season of Braves baseball, and the audience leaves to a happy ending – in the sense that “Titanic,” let’s say, had a happy ending. The Braves break a 6 game losing streak to finish at 72 – 90. Kurt Suzuki‘s 19th home run of the season opened […]

‘It’s only Make Believe’. Would it were……… Fish 10 Braves 2

  As things turned out the midnight recap target will be comfortably met, there being no need for many words to tell the tale of tonight’s proceedings. Let’s start with the bottom of the first, first pitch from Sims to Dee Gordon got past Freddie and they were off to the races. 32 pitches later […]

Miami 6, Atlanta 5

Well, like this year, tonight’s game started off with promise, but faded quickly into a disappointing end. Atlanta jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead with 4 in the 1st, bookended by home runs by Ozzie Albies and a 3 run shot by Lane Adams. In the 2nd, Kirt Suzuki doubled in Albies. After that, […]

Fish 7, Barves 1

I would apologize for the tardiness of this recap of last night’s game, but I’m not sure anyone has noticed. We here at Braves Journal appear to have lost interest in this season before the actual end. Mercifully for all concerned, the end is indeed nigh. What happened last night? Anemic offense against a pitcher […]

Muts 7, Barves 1

I didn’t watch this game. Sean Newcomb put in his typical outing: 7 baserunners (4 of which were walks) in 5 IP with 7 K’s. Newcomb’s had a decent rookie campaign. 4.32 ERA, 4.19 FIP, and 1.3 fWAR in 100 IP and 19 GS. So he’s averaging a little over 5 IP per start, and […]

Braves 3, Mets 4

For the first 6+ innings of this game, it was the RA Dickey show (with Ender Inciarte picking up his 200th hit on the season for good measure). The Braves offense failed on beat up on Rafael Montero as much as they usually do, but Dickey‘s knuckleball was fluttering and keeping the Mets off balance. […]

The deck of the battleship Missouri: Braves 9 Mets 2, then Braves 2, Mets 3

This is the last post for me this season. In a few days, baseball for the Braves is no more. So, I bring up the scene on the battleship Missouri. We are the delegation in top hats, come to surrender. What about the recaps: Game 1 The man’s name is Lucas Sims. He was the […]

Phillies 2, Braves 0

Maikel Franco homered in the 5th off Luiz Gohara, the only oasis in what was otherwise 7 innings of a Gohara desert for the Phillies. Luiz allowed 5 hits and 2 walks along with the run, and struck out 9.  The Phillies tacked on a run in the 8th against A.J. Minter.  The Braves made it interesting […]

Aeolian Cadence? Mahler, M’Lud….. Braves 4 Phils 2

https://youtu.be/wLXF9ib9liY Not a Second Time, surely? There seemed no way our Freeman-less offense could surmount the early 2 run lead we had given up. Our chances of a second, back to back win against our nemesis Phils seemed remote. A cloud of inevitability was settling over our Park accompanied by a bundle of wasted scoring […]
