2015 Falcons Draft: Vic Beasley, Edge Rusher

May 1, 2015 Brent Blackwell 0

It was the most obvious need in the draft. Everyone knew the Falcons needed an edge rusher. If you're taking the time to find your way to a little-visited corner of the internet to read about a guy the Falcons just drafted, you probably knew this too. Now, I'm not a big proponent of chasing…

Fredi Goes Platooning

April 7, 2015 Brent Blackwell 0

There's never too much to glean from Opening Day. With the Braves, despite all the offseason changes, many things were familiar on Monday in Miami. Julio Teheran pitched really well. Andrelton Simmons displayed defensive wizardry. A pretty good bullpen escaped some jams. A good player here had a bad day, a bad player there had…

With all apologies to Bruce Buffer..."Itttt'ssssssss Tiiiiimmmmmeeee!". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irFtTYP-H6I It's been a while since I last wrote about the Braves.

Just weeks away from Spring Training, it's time to delve into the projections. While FanGraphs crawls toward the ZiPs finish line and Baseball Prospectus' initial PECOTA projections were fun but shallow (the real fun of PECOTA is in deeper projections, which come out later; besides, PECOTA is behind a paywall, which I'll respect), the comparably…

We've done something like this before.  What number was worn by Syracuse University greats Jim Brown, Ernie Davis, and Floyd Little? What future NFL wide receiver was named MVP of the 79th Grey Cup in 1991? Considering both FBS and FCS (or D-1 A and D-1 AA, depending on when you grew up), what player…

In a widely expected move, the Atlanta Falcons fired head coach Mike Smith Monday after seven years with the team. The move was made less than 24 hours after reports leaked that the Falcons had retained executive search firm Korn Ferry to aid in their search for potential replacements. Atlanta joined several other teams in…
