3/19: WalkOff Walk- Best B’s in Braves Franchise History (Mon, 19 Mar 2018 12:42:31 -0400)
When you have operated a squad for nearly 150 years, you rack up a pretty expansive collection of players that have taken the field for you. In this series, we look at possibly the best possible lineup you could build that all share one thing in common – a last name that begins with the same letter.

6/20: The Writer's Journey- Happy Reds birthday, Paul Bako! (Tue, 20 Jun 2017 12:44:45 -0400)
June 20, 1972 Paul Bako played in the majors for 12 years, and spent time with 11 different teams. He reached career highs in 2008 with the Reds, his second-to-last team, in games played, plate appearances, runs scored, home runs, and RBI.

Jonathan Lucroy is already the best catcher in Milwaukee Brewers history. It’s not the most illustrious list in the world, that’s for sure. Darrell Porter. Henry Blanco. Dave Nilsson. Charlie Moore. B.J. Surhoff. Paul Bako. Chad Moeller. The list of great Milwaukee Brewers catchers until

12/28: Walk-Off Walk- Random Ex-Brave: Henry Blanco (Sun, 28 Dec 2014 12:25:18 -0500)
