    Atlanta Braves 2021 World Series Combo Pack Giveaway

    The Atlanta Braves are your 2021 World Series champions. The win over the Houston Astros marked their first championship since 1995. It’s hard to believe that it took 26 years for the Braves to finally bring home another championship. Back in 1995 when they won it that was the beginning of my senior year of high school. Unfortunately, I’ve only got memories of that team with John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, Fred McGriff, and David Justice. Now you can savor the 2021 Atlanta Braves and their World Series run forever. The MLB and Atlanta Braves have released a commemorative two-disc Blu-ray+DVD combo pack. This set is narrated by none…

    Mookie Betts Signs Mega Deal with Los Angeles Dodgers

    Mookie Betts became one of the richest athletes by signing a mega deal with the Dodgers. Star outfielder Mookie Betts and the Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed on a 12-year, $365 million extension that keeps the former American League MVP from reaching free agency this winter. When you combine the one-year, $27 million contract he’s currently playing out, Betts’ total comes to 13 years and $392 million. The deal tops the previous extension record of $360 million signed by Mike Trout and includes a record $65 million signing bonus. The Dodgers acquired the 27-year-old Betts from the Boston Red Sox in a blockbuster trade over the winter, giving up outfielder…

    4 Atlanta Braves Players Test Positive for Covid-19

    With the baseball season getting ready to start their 60-game season, players are test positive for Covid-19. Four members of the Atlanta Braves — Freddie Freeman, Will Smith, Touki Toussaint and Pete Kozma — have all tested positive for COVID-19, manager Brian Snitker said Saturday.

Snitker said Smith and Toussaint, both relief pitchers, have been asymptomatic. Under MLB protocol, all four players must self-isolate immediately and will need to test negative twice in a 24-hour period before returning to the field amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    Los Angeles Dodgers Trade: Will They Finally Win Title?

    The Los Angeles Dodgers has arguably been the best team in baseball the last five years. Unfortunately, they have no World Series championship to show for it. Last year, they were upset by the eventual champions, Washington Nationals in the NLCS. The two years before, they were beaten by the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox in the World Series. The Dodgers have a stacked lineup and a great pitching staff. Clayton Kershaw is arguably this generations best pitcher. The issue is that his regular season greatness hasn’t translated into the postseason. The Dodgers would do almost anything to finally bring home their first championship since 1988. The Los Angeles…

    Veteran Dodgers Blank Braves in Game 1

    The Atlanta Braves first postseason didn’t go as planned against the Dodgers. With the Los Angeles Dodgers having one goal in mind and that’s get back to the World Series, they ran through Atlanta. The Dodgers belted 3 HRs in their 6-0 win over the Atlanta Braves. If that wasn’t enough, the Atlanta Braves pitchers walked eight batters in the game. Atlanta only gave up five hits to the Dodgers, which is a positive thing as they head to Game 2 tonight. The Dodgers will have Clayton Kershaw, arguably the best pitcher of this generation against Aníbal Sánchez, who has pitched to a 2.79 ERA in seven postseason games. Can…

    Braves Win With Walk Off Home Run on Opening Day

    I’ve been a baseball fan ever since I was a toddler. Seriously, my dad was a coach and he would bring me to all the games and practices. When I was 3 or 4-years-old, you could catch me in the field, preferably shortstop taking ground balls. Throughout my years a young’n, my teams were the Atlanta Braves and the Boston Red Sox. Greg Maddux, John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, Chipper Jones, Ron Gant, Dave Justice and Javy Lopez are still amongst my all-time favorites. If you want to, we take this back to Dale Murphy, Bob Horner, Glenn Hubbard, Phil Niekro and Andres Thomas were some of my early favorites. My…

    Chipper Jones Headlines 2018 Hall of Fame Class

    Chipper Jones, Vladimir Guerrero, Jim Thome and Trevor Hoffman were elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, it was announced Wednesday. Jones and Thome were both elected in their first year of eligibility. This is the fourth time that the Baseball Writers’ Association of America has elected four players in a year (1947, 1955, 2015). “It was waterworks,” said Jones, who drew 97.2 percent of the vote after being selected on 410 of 422 ballots. The four will join veterans committee inductees Jack Morris and Alan Trammell in entering the Baseball Hall of Fame on July 29 in Cooperstown, New York. It took 75 percent for election, or 317 votes, to be elected into the…

    The New York Yankees Blank Astros, Take 3-2 Series Lead

    This time, it was Masahiro Tanaka who was untouchable on the mound. And when the New York Yankees sent Houston ace Dallas Keuchel to an early exit, their rollicking crowd let loose with a cathartic roar that must have boomed all over the Bronx. “New York is no joke,” Keuchel said afterward. One more big win, and these Yankees are World Series-bound. Tanaka pitched seven innings of three-hit ball and New York finally solved a longtime nemesis at just the right moment, beating Keuchel and the Astros 5-0 on Wednesday for a 3-2 lead in the AL Championship Series. “What a performance,” Yankees third baseman Todd Frazier said about Tanaka.…

    Hat Trick by Jose Altuve Powers Astros Against Red Sox

    Before he answered any questions about the Houston Astros’ series-opening victory here Thursday, Justin Verlander asked one of his own. “First off,” the ace pitcher said, “how good is Jose Altuve?” After everything Altuve has done this season — and particularly after what he did in an 8-2 pounding of the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of their American League Division Series — even his Astros teammates are running out of ways to put his feats into context. For the past six months, they saw him hit .346 en route to his third career batting title. And now, as the playoffs began, they watched the 5-foot-6 dynamo bash three…
