Can Bonifacio and Russell give the Atlanta Braves the jolt they need?

The trade with the Cubs brings relief for relievers, and—we hope—a new brand of energy in “Lo Viste”

For both millenials and long-time fans, this Braves season is starting to bring flashbacks. Young fans recall the collapse of 2011 as the long-sufferers fight off visions of the late 1980’s. The team has lost six straight games—falling to three games behind the first-place Nationals. Despair over this slump is mitigated by a trade with the Cubs that could give the team a needed jolt.

The Braves released new stadium renderings, none of which are official

The illustrations, which were created to show the stadium’s scale, will be followed by drawings of the actual site at a later date.

It’s been a busy season for the Atlanta Braves and their future home in Cobb County. The past few weeks have seen heavy machinery on the ground, and last night, the development team for the $400 million mixed-use complex was formally announced. Today, new images of the stadium were released–and although we have to admit that a few of them are rather stunning, it’s important to realize that nothing pictured is official. Read more...

In case you missed it, the new Atlanta Braves stadium site is under construction. See what it looks like right now.

The original start date was July 15, but heavy machinery has been up and running for a month.

The Atlanta Braves' up-and-down streakiness has left them one game behind the Washington Nationals in the NL East (at least, that is, until the Nats play tonight). In the midst of this season's roller-coaster ride, some may have forgotten about the team's new stadium in Cobb County set to open in 2017. And the warm and fuzzy feelings from the weekend’s Hall of Fame inductions of Bobby Cox, Tom Glavine, and Greg Maddux might have just been enough to put outrage about the planned relocation on the back burner for most fans. (We stress: Most; not all.) Read more...

How Braves second basemen Tommy La Stella took the path less traveled to the bigs

Despite knocks on his other skills, the unheralded lefty simply hits.


After the recent one-game suspension of Dan Uggla, it seems safe to declare that Tommy La Stella will frequent Fredi Gonzalez’s starting lineup for the rest of 2014 and possibly beyond. The 25-year-old has performed serviceably, hitting .292 in 154 at-bats—a welcome jump in production from the .189 average that other Braves second basemen have collectively hit this season.

Who is casting All-Star votes for Justin Upton?

Kate Upton and BJ Upton, of course. Also Ralph Reed, Big Boi, and Moe's.

What do a supermodel and an evangelical political strategist have in common? How about a legendary half of Outkast and our hometown burrito chain? They all support  Atlanta Brave Justin Upton's All-Star bid. Oh, so does BJ Upton, in case you wondered. Read more...
