With his scheduled rehab start for Gwinnett rained out, Braves right-hander Brandon Beachy had to settle for throwing a three-inning simulated game in the Gwinnett batting cage Monday.

Beachy, whose return is taking on new urgency with every injury to the bullpen, will make his next scuduled start on Friday. The Braves hope to give him three or four starts before actvating him. Latest reports indicate that Beachy will remain a starter, with julio Teheran or Kris Medlen moving into the bullpen.


Jose Costanza is hitting .400 for May since returning from his hamstring injury, and hitting safely in all six games since being activated. ... Joey Terdoslavich is once again leading his league (in this case, International) in doubles, hitting two in the first game of Gwinnett's doubleheader to give him 18 for the season. But he's not just producing gap power, as his eighth homer led the G-Braves to a 5-2 win in the nightcap.

We Can Do Something About Mass Shootings - And Response

A friend posted his observation this morning that there was paranoia about reasonable gun laws. I know his heart is saying we have to do something about these mass shootings. Then while scanning the morning news shows I watched a pile o’ pundits from Al Sharpton to Donald Trump pontificate on doing “something” about the problem. Personally, I think there are plenty of gun control ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: How We Learned To Play

A couple of years ago I was reading a fascinating story that asserted the “Little Rascals” taught generations of children how to play with each other. When the comedy show about children in a poor neighborhood originated in 1922, there were just silent movies but in 1929, when the “talkies” were introduced, children and adults alike were mesmerized by the wonderful humor that producer ...
