  1. Pirates must rely on big reinforcements

    Christina Kahrl

    This is a big week for the Pittsburgh Pirates, perhaps even a defining week. Monday night's loss to the Atlanta Braves was their sixth straight. They're now two games back in the wild-card standings, with the Braves between them and the Cardinals and...

  2. Braves need their lineup stars to step up

    Christina Kahrl

    Maybe it's a matter of sympathy for a team that lost much of its rotation to the surgeon before a pitch had been thrown. Maybe it's because we all love prospects, and indulge them their shortcomings while anticipating their glorious futures. But with...

  3. Braves end their infield Uggla-ness

    Christina Kahrl

    A few quick takeaways from the Atlanta Braves' accepting the inevitable and finally cutting Dan Uggla loose, because releasing the veteran second baseman not only means the Braves eat the money they owe him, it also means admitting that they effectiv...

  4. Teheran keeps rolling as Braves' ace

    Christina Kahrl

    Julio Teheran mowed down the Mets, which probably isn't news in itself. It was his third quality start and second win in four turns against them. Minuscule numbers reflecting a guy who's just 23 years old and still at the start of his career but repr...

  5. Is Freddie Freeman ready for bigger things?

    Christina Kahrl

    Sure, one game is not supposed to mean more than one win or win loss, but does anyone else think that Freddie Freeman isn't ready to explode? After he ripped a pair of home runs against the Brewers on Tuesday night, it's worth remembering that he is ...

  6. Sizing up the best World Series Web Gems

    Christina Kahrl

    There's something ironic about talking about some of the best plays in World Series history when the key feature of the first two games of this year's Fall Classic have been the defensive miscues that decided the outcome. But as quickly as we've judg...

  7. Chess match: Dodgers versus Braves

    Christina Kahrl

    Here's a look at some managerial tactics that Clint Hurdle and Mike Matheny employ. Now let's check in on Don Mattingly and Fredi Gonzalez. Los Angeles Dodgers versus Atlanta Braves What Mattingly likes to do: On offense, Mattingly isn't especi...

  8. WARfare, 2013 style

    Christina Kahrl

    With the season roughly halfway over, I thought it would be a good idea to dig into the numbers to see what WAR (wins above replacement) is telling us. I'll start with a man who has been at the center of a lot of WAR talk in the last year. 1. Migu...

  9. NL's latest rookie crop shining bright

    Christina Kahrl

    When it comes to this year's rookies, as fans I think we sort of came into this season like the kid at Christmas the year after you got the bike and the pony, or the new car and the Red Ryder BB gun. Because, let's face it, the year after Mik...

  10. Braves' pen woes deepen, but they'll be OK

    Christina Kahrl

    The Braves might be atop the National League East, the beneficiaries of Justin Upton's slugging largesse, and they just got Jason Heyward back from the disabled list after getting Brian McCann back in action earlier this week. Yet for all ...

  11. Braves winning Uggla up the middle?

    Christina Kahrl

    Beyond the hoopla involving various Braves and slugging exploits, it might be easy to forget that their highest-paid position player -- Dan Uggla -- is off to a bad start this season. Hitting just .184/.304/.367 in his age-33 season after the weekend...

  12. Braves' Uptons both go downtown

    Christina Kahrl

    On a night when folks might have been wondering if Chris Davis was going to hit his fifth home run in his fifth game, somebody did do it. It just wasn't Chris Davis. Justin Upton's two-homer night was just his latest "happy to be here" feat now th...

  13. Need to add O, how about a platoon?

    Christina Kahrl

    It's easy to say spring training means nothing, that clubs know their rosters, and action from the Cactus or Grapefruit Leagues is just a time-filling cash cow that's about three weeks too long. But there are elective decisions to be made, and as muc...

  14. Brian McCann's value on D

    Christina Kahrl

    Brian McCann's future with the Braves is certainly open to speculation, as Jerry Crasnick points out so effectively. And if McCann does wind up a free agent, a lot of potential earnings will be tied to two qualities: His bat and position scarcity, be...

  15. Forget-me-nots for the missing men of 2012

    Christina Kahrl

    Say you're a team that has a problem, like losing an everyday player to free agency. Market solutions tend to be expensive, whether in cash spent or prospects dealt. But some teams already have potential solutions for their seeming offseason needs on...

  16. Hanson cashed in by cash-minded Braves

    Christina Kahrl

    The immediate reaction on Tommy Hanson for Jordan Walden? A gut reaction might be "starter for reliever, guy who gets the starter wins." That would be easy, but would also lose sight of what's really in play here, especially in the shadow of tonight'...
