Frustrating season has Braves mulling Brian Snitker’s future, per report

Tensions are running high as the Braves are mulling whether or not to retain Brian Snitker It is not secret that the Braves’ season this year has been a bit disappointing. The team explicitly expressed its goals of fielding a competitive team in 2017 and, towards that end, signed seemingly reliable veterans such as Bartolo Colon and RA Dickey towards that end in addition to trading for Brandon Phillips in the wake of Sean Rodriguez’s injury. To some extent, the Braves were successful in improving the team. The Braves have already matched their win total last season and, barring a...

After a late night flight from Atlanta, the Washington Nationals are sending a youngster-filled lineup out against the New York Mets...

Dickey (13 for 29, .448/.543/.759, 3 2B, 2 HRs, 6 BB, 4 Ks), but he had a rough night at the plate in SunTrust Park, going 0 for 3 with two Ks against the knuckleballer and 0 for 4 with three Ks overall.

Baseball Reference Tomahawk Take Editor’s Note: The Atlanta Braves really needed a solid performance from veteran pitcher R.A.

Braves 3, Natspos 2

R.A. Dickey turned in a masterful performance, probably his best of the year. He went 8 innings and surrendered only 4 hits and no bases on balls. Vizcaino struck out the side in the ninth, which was a perfect contrast to his horrific performance the night before, when he walked 3 consecutive batters with the […]

Atlanta Braves pitcher R.A. Dickey may have hinted at retirement

Atlanta Braves pitcher R.A. Dickey may have hinted at retirement

It’s not definitive, but it’s worth monitoring R.A. Dickey has struggled at times during the 2017 season but, for the most part, the veteran right-hander has returned value on his contract with the Atlanta Braves. In fact, there has already been speculation that the club wants him back for 2018 and, considering they have a team option, it is entirely up to them in a contractual sense. However, Dickey will be 43 years old soon and, as you may expect, retirement is a possibility for a player (even a knuckle-baller) of that age. To that end, Dickey tossed something of a gem on Thursday in...

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news before the start of this weekend’s series with the Mets in Citi Field... Some nights, R.A. Dickey just has his stuff, and as with all knuckleballers, there isn’t much you can do. For instance, in 2012, he had about 25 of those nights.

Tanner Roark solid again, but Nationals can’t solve R.A. Dickey in 3-2 loss to Braves...

Tanner Roark was sharp against the Braves in SunTrust Park, but the Nationals couldn’t generate much offense against R.A. Dickey.

Dickey stifles Nats, Braves snap skid with 3-2 win

R.A. Dickey held the Nationals to two runs in eight innings as the Braves rode a two-run fourth to a victory. R.A. Dickey had really struggled in his last few outings, having allowed 17 runs in 14 and 1⁄3 innings so far in September. So, of course, he went out and dominated the Nationals tonight as the Braves snapped a four-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory. Ender Inciarte, returning to the lineup after missing a few starts with a hand injury, immediately made his presence felt against Washington starter Tanner Roark, lacing a leadoff triple. A few pitches later, Ozzie Albies hit a...
