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

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...

Suzuki’s power surge sends Braves to win over Phillies

Suzuki’s power surge sends Braves to win over Phillies

Kurt Suzuki had another multi-homer night, and the Braves picked up their 69th win of the season in comfortable fashion. The first six batters for the Braves all reached base in the first inning, which resulted in Atlanta burying Philadelphia in a five-run hole that the Phillies couldn’t climb out of — ultimately giving the Braves a 7-2 victory. Indeed, the Braves jumped all over Ben Lively to start this game and in the blink of an eye, a small bit of snowy precipitation from the Braves’ bats turned into a complete avalanche of runs in the first inning. Ozzie Albies brought in Ender...

Washington’s battle for 100 wins continues against the Mets

Can New York stop their rivals from attaining the top seed in the National League? There isn’t going to be very much on the line when the Nationals make their final 2017 appearance at Citi Field this weekend. Washington has made up a lot of ground on the Dodgers recently, but it’s still going to be tough for Dusty Baker’s team to claim home field advantage in the National League with only 10 games remaining. To do that the Nationals would probably have to reach 100 wins, which is something that Baker hasn’t done since he made his managerial debut with San Francisco way back in...
