Jake Peavy a “legit possibility” for the Braves

From the Bud Norris rumor this morning to this from David O’Brien of the AJC:

 

O’Brien tends to be a pretty good indicator of what the Braves front office is actually thinking, so it’s safe to say they’re interested in him and, more generally starting pitching.

Brewers outfielder Curtis Granderson got his first hit of the postseason on Wednesday night in the top of the ninth inning of NLCS Game 5. Facing Ryan Madson with a runner on third base and two outs, Granderson laced a 3-2 fastball to the gap in right-center field. Granderson hustled into second base to beat the throw by Yasiel Puig. He slid head-first and his helmet slid off in the process. The helmet, unfortunately, bounced off the second base bag back towards Granderson’s face, hitting him in the mouth and chipping his front tooth.

To his credit, Granderson is taking the accident in stride:

At least Granderson doesn’t play hockey for a living.
