    Where Would the Braves Be With Aaron Nola instead of Chris Sale and Reynaldo López?

    The Atlanta Braves had a good offseason. Looking back at all the acquisitions the team made, both via free agency and trades, it's easy to see the significant impacts several of those pitchers have made: Starting pitchers Reynaldo López (free agency) and Chris Sale (trade) have combined to go 9-2, with the Braves winning twelve of their seventeen starts on the season. Consider this: There was significant reporting about Atlanta's interest in free agent starter Aaron Nola, who ultimately spurned the Braves (and more money per season) to return to the Philadelphia Phillies on a seven year, $172M deal on November 19th.

    Atlanta Braves' Flamethrower Making Baseball History During Epic Run

    The Atlanta Braves split a double-header with the San Diego Padres on Monday in Atlanta. After losing the first game, 6-5, in dramatic fashion, Atlanta won the second game 3-0 behind the left arm of Chris Sale. Once again, Sale dominated, going 7.0 innings and just five hits and no runs. Oft-injured since the 2019 season, there are clear questions about Sale's durability, but when he's on the field, his talent is undeniable and he certainly appears to be back to the form that made him a perennial Cy Young finalist with the Chicago White Sox and early in his tenure with the Boston Red Sox.
