Yardbarker: Atlanta Braves

Judging The Athletic’s potential Braves trades

The Braves are now 5 games back of the Mets for first place in the NL East. It sounds ugly, and it is, but there is still plenty of time for this team to turn it around and make a run at their fourth consecutive division title.

The Daily Chop: Big Day in the Big Apple awaits the Braves

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

A critical double-header begins a very important week of baseball for Atlanta.

I am not sure if there has been a more exciting regular season day of baseball for the Braves in quite a while.

After a disheartening duo of 10-8 losses against the Red Sox last week, the Braves were able to get a bit back on track by winning three out of four games over the weekend against the Cardinals. Now, the opportunity is at hand for the Braves to really use that...

It sure is nice to have your Triple-A affiliate just down the road. The Braves sure make full use of that luxury on a regular basis.
