    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.

    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…

    Atlanta Braves Clinch NL East Crown

    For the first time since 2013, the Atlanta Braves clinched the NL crown. Many thought it would happen, but in a year or two because of their young talent. Coming into spring training, you could see that they were working with some young talent in the organization. Fortunately, my son and I had the opportunity to check them out against the Yankees in Florida at spring training. Earlier today, the Atlanta Braves defeated the Philadelphia Phillies to wrap up the division and head to the playoffs. It seems like the season would be special after their opening day walk-off HR. No matter what happens moving forward in the playoffs, we’re…
