Braves win 8-5, led by Freeman's 4 RBI and HR, the Braves tag Strausburg for 3 HRs.


Braves DFA Roberto Hernandez and send Cunniff back to AAA. Call up Jason Hursh and Akeel Morris for bullpen help.



Now that Mccann has cleared waivers, I'd like to see the Braves work out a trade with the Yankees for Mac.

No excuse for Aybar trying to get to 3rd with no out and 1 run behind in the 9th, but... he should have been called safe. The game should have gone into extra innings.

Swanson first MLB at bat, lined out to CF. Good AB though, saw 6 pitches.

Twins lead 2-0 in the 3rd.

Teheran goes 6 innings allowing 3 runs. Nats jumped out to a 5-0 lead, Inciarte with a 2 run HR and Markakis with a solo HR cut the lead to 5-3. In the 6th

MLB Trade Rumors is saying Kemp cleared waivers too. I'd like to see Kemp stay. I wonder if the Braves and Yankees can make a Markakis for McCann swap. Markakis is having a better year than both Gardener and Ellsbury and the Yankees are ready for Gary Sanchez to be their primary catcher. Markakis/McCann salaries are close. Markakis and P John Gant for McCann?

McCann isn't any good, i would rather just keep Nick or trade him for a good prospect from a playoff team. I also dont think the yanks would take him, they have a very solid OF.

McCann is better than AJ and Flowers, a reunion with the Braves could be good for him. His offense production has dropped, but we all know that he is great calling games and would be a veteran presence for all of our young pitchers. The Braves did call the Yankees about him near the deadline. You must not have read my sentence, where Markakis is having a better year than both Gardner and Ellsbury. The Yankees outfield is not very solid. We all know how much they are paying Ellsbury who is hitting .265 with 5 HRs and 40 RBI and is often injured, and Gardner hitting .259 with 7 HRs and 29 RBI. That is not very solid. Markakis is hitting .270 with 9 HRs and 66 RBI. Markakis has nearly as many RBI by himself as Gardner and Ellsbury combined.

But thanks at a weak attempt to argue against my idea.
