"You will not find a single member of the organization who was not concerned with what Bethancourt showed from a defensive standpoint, especially in September. While he might have been fatigued near the end of a long season, his reaction to balls in the dirt and repeated backhand attempts only showed why many scouts have spent the past few years describing him as lazy.
With that being said, Bethancourt has every tool you would want in a defensive catcher and he's young enough to be molded by a demanding backup catcher"

Google+ has a new polling feature, and it's incumbent upon the Coffeeshop to give it a try.  So use this poll to grade the #Braves on their 2014 season.

I gave them a C but I could have stretched it to a B. They had excellent pitching, in spite of a spate of injuries. They led the division or were right up there through July. Then, of course, they collapsed, IMHO almost entirely attributable to a mysterious inability to score runs in August and September. In the end, I chose C because of their overall sub-.500 record.

Craig Kimbrel imitates the windups of legendary Braves' pitchers Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and John Smoltz.

I guess bite the bullet and trade Gattis and Kimbrel while you can to get someone decent in the outfield to complement Heyward and someone decent at second. We need 2 more to hit close to .300!

The only man to play for the Boston, Milwaukee and Atlanta #Braves. #HOFer Eddie Mathews born 83 years ago today.
The “lad” the Georgia Peach was referring to was Eddie Mathews, arguably one of the best third baseman the game has ever known. During a 17-year big league career (1952-68), spent mostly with the Braves, the hot corner star not only possessed a rocket arm and a gift for fielding, but the lefty swinger was a feared slugger who became only the seventh player to reach the 500 home run plateau.

We're past the #MLB All Star break, and the #AtlantaBraves find themselves all alone in first place in the NL East! But the #Braves aren't resting on their laurels, releasing Dan Uggla, and sending Luis Avilan to the minors, with BJ Upton trade rumors swirling.
