Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Editorial, MLB, Playoffs

Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder leading the way for the MIlwaukee BrewersIn this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris take a look around the MLB landscape to assess which divisions are in the bag and where the pennant and/or wild card races aren't. The Detroit Tigers and Philadelphia Phillies probably don't have anything to worry about, but Texas Rangers and possibly the Milwaukee Brewers may. Both wild card races could get interesting between the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays, as well as the Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals, respectively. GIVE IT A LISTEN!

Dan Uggla’s streak ends at 33

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB

Dan UgglaNow that Dan Uggla has gone hitless for once, can we please remember that the Atlanta Braves are in a playoff race? As everybody must know, Uggla went 0-for-3 against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday to snap his consecutive games with a hit streak at 33, but with all the attention Uggla’s been getting over the last month and a half, you wouldn’t know that the Braves currently have a four-game lead over the San Francisco Giants for the NL wild card.

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: MLB

They’ll welcome the Braves to New York next weekend and again for the final weekend in August.

Heath Bell trade will set market value for league’s relievers

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB, Trades

Heath BellHeath Bell looks like one of the most attractive players who may be available at this year’s non-waiver trade deadline. Reports are coming out of most cities saying that team so-and-so has inquired about Bell, but does that mean San Diego Padres GM Jed Hoyer is likely to trade him? Not necessarily. Many GMs will call Hoyer simply to find out the asking price for Bell, many of whom have no interest in actually putting together a deal.

Tiny Tim tearing it up in Royals’ bullpen

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB

Tim CollinsAfter the Kansas City Royals dealt Zack Greinke in the offseason, many thought the team was up for yet another reboot of the familiar rebuilding theme. Instead, the Royals find themselves with a .500 record and sit ahead of both the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins in their division. A good part of their early success is due to breakout rookie reliever Tim Collins. The small lefty has been solid on the hill and helped his team eke out some of their early 20 victories.

EndScore Report: In Your Face Roger McDowell and Atlanta Falcons

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Drafts, Editorial, MLB, News, NFL, Trades

Roger McDowell acting stupid at the ballparkThis week's "In Your Face" has DV and Chris putting on blast, former New York Mets star and current Atlanta Braves pitching coach, Roger McDowell. McDowell engaged in tomfoolery and straight-up stupidity at the ballpark and deserves the "in your face" treatment!

The other recipient has to go to the Atlanta Falcons for trading five picks (two first-rounders, one second, and two fourth-round picks) to the Cleveland Browns to move up 21 spots to select Julio Jones with the sixth overall pick, a wide-receiver to match up with Roddy White. I guess Jones is some sort of savior, which means that A.J. Green, the first wide receiver selected is a god then. Too many picks given up for one pick, no matter where it is. In your face, ATL... it's not a good week for you sports-wise. Thank goodness for the Atlanta Hawks! Listen to this week's "In Your Face"!

Shaun Marcum and the Milwaukee Brewers trying to right the ship

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB

Shaun MarcumPicked to finish in the mid-80s in wins by many experts, the Milwaukee Brewers got off to a rough start, losing their first four in a row, including the season opener by way of a walk-off home run. They’re playing under-.500 so far and have already put themselves in a hole. While the season is still young, there are already a few disappointments making this difficult for the Brew Crew. First of all, Zack Greinke has yet to make an appearance (and likely won’t until May) and secondly, Shaun Marcum has been anything but Marcum-esque.

Derek Lowe gets Opening Day call for third-straight season

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB

Derek LoweThe Atlanta Braves announced that for the third consecutive season, they’ll give the ball to Derek Lowe on Opening Day. The Braves will travel from sunny Florida up to Washington to take on the Nationals in one of this year’s untraditional March 31 kickoff games. Even at the ripe age of 37, Lowe still has enough gas left in his tank for a 15th season as a major league pitcher. At least that’s what the Braves organization is hoping for.
