Sign of times: Braves quickly run out of patience with Folty

Facing a sprint of a season rather than a marathon because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Atlanta Braves didn't have time to let Mike Foltynewicz sort out his perplexing problems. The Braves designated Foltynewicz for assignment after a 14-5 loss at Tampa Bay on Monday night, a move that effectively ended his tenure with a team that once viewed him as its staff ace. The move came after Foltynewicz surrendered six runs, three homers and four walks in 3 1/3 innings.

Atlanta Braves outfielder Adam Duvall hit a cardboard cutout with the image of a dog with a home run during Saturday's game in New York.Duvall broke open a scoreless game with his 350-foot homer to right field.

Mets opener features cardboard cutout 'fan' Chipper Jones

The New York Mets continue to be tormented by retired Atlanta Braves infielder Chipper Jones as cardboard cutouts of him and his son Shea were placed in the stands along with images of other fans for Friday's season opener. It's unclear whether the cutouts of Jones and his son were a joke or were placed there on purpose, but it seemed appropriate on some level as the Braves were the visiting team. It didn't seem to bother the Mets, as they came away with the 1-0 victory.[MLB] This post appeare...
