2017 Atlanta Braves Player Preview: Anthony Recker

Did anybody have a prop bet for this guy making the roster?  Where did this decision come from? The Atlanta Braves have placed Anthony Recker on their newly minted 25-man Opening Day roster.  Once Kurt Suzuki was signed, this wasn’t the way the plan was expected to come together.  So what do we make of […] 2017 Atlanta Braves Player Preview: Anthony Recker - Tomahawk Take - Tomahawk Take - An Atlanta Braves Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Atlanta Braves 2017 Season Preview: Tyler Flowers

Tyler Flowers had a very solid season in 2016.  Can he repeat the same success in 2017? Catcher will definitely be a crowded position this year for the Atlanta Braves.  Atlanta signed veteran catcher Kurt Suzuki this offseason to try and take some of the load off of catcher Tyler Flowers. And now the 25-man […] Atlanta Braves 2017 Season Preview: Tyler Flowers - Tomahawk Take - Tomahawk Take - An Atlanta Braves Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

2017 Atlanta Braves Player Preview: Kurt Suzuki

This off-season the Atlanta Braves added veteran catcher, Kurt Suzuki, to help Tyler Flowers with the battery situation. While the club already had Anthony Recker as a back-up option, Suzuki’s track record was certainly more to write home about than Recker’s. New Atlanta Braves catcher Kurt Suzuki is entering his 11th year in the bigs.

Braves fall to Mets despite solid outing by R.A Dickey

Braves bats held in check by Mets pitching. R.A. Dickey turned in a solid performance on the mound but the Atlanta Braves weren’t able to muster any offense in a 3-0 loss.
