    Freddie Freeman’s success with the Los Angeles Dodgers this season is bittersweet for Atlanta Braves fans still rooting him on. The biggest divorce in Major League Baseball from last winter was between Freddie Freeman and the Atlanta Braves. He ended up with the Los Angeles Dodgers where he might have a slightly better chance at winning back-to-back World Series rings. Regardless of the final outcome of where the two clubs finish, his dominance in Hollywood this year is definitely bittersweet for Braves fans. How good has Freeman been? Rowan Kavner of FOX Sports did the math and Freeman could go hitless in his next 125 at-bats and still have a better batting average than the league average. Freddie Freeman could go hitless in his next 125 at-bats and would still have a .245 batting average. League average this year is .243. — Rowan Kavner (@RowanKavner) July 31, 2022 Freddie Freeman is having a great year for the Dodgers and it’s an odd feeling for Braves fans The breakup between Freeman and the Braves wasn’t a bad one.

    Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman claims he is happy after a tumultuous couple of months, which included parting with his agent and an emotional Braves reunion. Freeman parted ways with his agent shortly prior to reports suggesting Casey Close misled him in free agent negotiations, pushing him away from Atlanta and towards Los Angeles. That was obviously a huge allegation from Doug Gottlieb, who is now being sued by Close for libel. Perhaps Freeman just needed some space, especially after his return to Atlanta was met with a mix of emotions, including regret. But the last month or so has been electric on the field for Freeman, who headed into the All-Star break with some of his best career splits over that timespan. His overall numbers are scary as well, as manager Dave Roberts coined them, since Freeman is hitting .324 with a .401 OBP. Dodgers: Freddie Freeman is happy for nowIt was only a matter of time before Freeman settled in. Red-hot at the plate, he’s grown accustomed to a previously-unfamiliar setting. on FanSided’s The Incline Dodgers...
    It’s been over a week since Freddie Freeman made his return to Atlanta, and we’re still discussing it. Freeman’s mistake is a lesson for free agents everywhere. Freeman was visibly shaken both on the field and in the clubhouse, so much so that Dodgers teammate Clayton Kershaw openly questioned whether or not he wanted to switch clubhouses. The answer is a little more convoluted than you might think. Freeman fired his agent shortly after the series, with a rampant rumor suggesting the star first baseman was blindsided by leaving the Braves, and never given the full scope of offers in front of him. Casey Close, Freeman’s former agent, has denied these claims. The real truth is a bitter one: Freeman’s exit from Atlanta is on him. He knows this, and as much as it stings right now, it’s something he’ll have to accept long-term. Braves: Freddie Freeman’s departure is his faultPlayers with the influence of Freeman ought to have complete control over where they play. In fact, it’s hard to believe he wouldn’t. Had Freddie wanted to return to Atlanta, he...
    There are so many lessons that can be learned from the Freddie Freeman free agency saga. It may pain Freddie Freeman that he longer plays for the Atlanta Braves, but he has to accept he is playing the final third of his big-league career in a Los Angeles Dodgers uniform. Though it never had to be this way, here we are. It has been about a week since Freeman made his return to Truist Park for the first time as a Dodger. The whole weekend was even more awkward than anyone thought possible. While thankfully the three-game series in Atlanta is in the rearview mirror, Freeman’s chaotic free agency is one the Braves and impending free agents can learn from. What we have here at its very essence is a failure to communicate. That is the biggest takeaway.Freddie Freeman free agency: Lessons Atlanta Braves, free agents can learn fromNo doubt about it, the frustrating 2022 MLB lockout played a big part in all this. What the labor stoppage did was cut off all ties of communication between teams and players’...
    One month into his Atlanta Braves tenure, Matt Olson is everything his new team could have imagined when the Atlanta brass let Freddie Freeman walk in free agency. Matt Olson grew up in Braves Country, but his first month playing first base for the team he grew up rooting for has gone about as well as the Atlanta Braves could have ever hoped for. The Lilburn native and former Parkview star was drafted out of high school by the Oakland Athletics in 2012. Instead of rooming with Marietta native Dansby Swanson at Vanderbilt, they reunited 10 years later on the same Atlanta infield. Though he has the immense pressure of replacing Freddie Freeman at first base, Olson has been loving every minute playing at home. He is exactly what the Braves were hoping for when they took a gamble and let Freeman walk.Matt Olson is absolutely thriving in his first month with the Atlanta BravesIn David O’Brien’s feature for The Athletic, Olson talks about being able to play at Truist Park, which allows his wife and parents to see him play at The...
    It’s what brought him to baseball. It kept him happy with the Atlanta Braves and it ended up being what brought Freddie Freeman home to Los Angeles. Loyalty and home are important to Freddie Freeman. When the Orange County native lost his mother at age 10, Freeman found a home on the baseball field at El Modena High School and coach Steve Bernard. Bernard was an important figure to Freeman and his older brother Andrew. Freeman said that Bernard was not only his coach on the field but also a lifelong mentor. Freeman told The Athletic’s Fabian Ardaya, “[Bernard] is just a caring and loving man that didn’t care about the baseball player Freddie, just cared about the person Freddie. In my life, that’s all I care about.” He found in Bernard a mentor that encouraged his love of baseball. When Freeman was feeling down, Bernard would bring solace with this simple message: “This is your sanctuary. This field is where you go to get away from all the things that bother you. Just go out there and enjoy the...
    Freddie Freeman’s comments on alleged friction with Ronald Acuña Jr. highlight one of the major things that’s wrong with baseball and the Braves. Whether or not there is real beef between Freddie Freeman and Ronald Acuña Jr., this whole situation just serves to reveal how much baseball gets wrong when dealing with the image of its young stars. If you haven’t been following, Acuña Jr. caused a stir when he went on Instagram Live and revealed that he won’t miss Freeman because there were “clashes” between the two players. The Braves outfield pointed to a time when veterans in Atlanta wiped off his eye black in the clubhouse. While Acuña has walked back his comments, claiming the media blew them out of proportion, Freeman was still prompted to respond and gave his side of the story. Braves rules apparently created Freddie Freeman and Ronald Acuña frictionFreeman told MLB Network that he didn’t perceive any friction in his relationship with Acuña but he did confirm that as a clubhouse veteran he was often tasked with enforcing organizational rules around appearance. “When...
    FREDERICK "Freddie" Freeman made a name for himself in Major League Baseball due to his success in the Atlanta Braves organization. Since his debut in 2010 he has become a five-time MLB All-Star and now fans want to know more about his life. 2Freddie Freeman is a professional MLB playerCredit: Getty Who is Freddie Freeman? Born September 12, 1989, in Fountain Valley, California, Freeman, 32, is known professionally as a first baseman in the MLB. He joined the league in 2007 after being drafted in the second round, with the 78th overall selection.

    Freddie Freeman to the Toronto Blue Jays is starting to pick up some serious steam. With the Atlanta Braves moving on from Freddie Freeman, there is a chance he ends up going to a dark horse for his services in the Toronto Blue Jays. Since the Braves traded for Oakland Athletics first baseman and Atlanta area native Matt Olson, Freeman has almost certainly played his last game in front of Braves Country. Though he has long been tied to teams like the Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Yankees, there is a growing belief the Blue Jays could swoop in and land the perennial All-Star first baseman in free agency. Toronto was able to pry George Springer away from the Houston Astros last offseason. Apparently some guy on Instagram who has been right about things before, is saying Freeman is signing with the jays tomorrow… My emotions dude….my emotions — KevinGohD (@KevinGohD) March 14, 2022 While it is easy for younger Canadian baseball fans to forget who Carlos Baerga is, a Cleveland baseball legend and the man who...
    The Atlanta Braves could be some of the biggest losers after the MLB lockout ends, with reports indicating that Freddie Freeman isn’t happy.  As soon as the Braves won the World Series, first baseman Freddie Freeman instantly became one of the most desirable free agents, and Atlanta fans were clamoring for the franchise to bring him back. Four months later, negotiations between Freeman and the Braves have stalled due to the lockout, and it seems their relationship is on the verge of blowing up in the offseason. The Braves are competing for Oakland A’s first baseman Matt Olson, whose price has only gone up in the ensuing months, while the Braves are unable to even discuss options with Freeman. The optics of pursuing Olson while Freeman has yet to make a decision doesn’t help the fact that there is a “growing belief” that Freeman won’t sign with the Braves, according to Buster Olney. Olney revealed that the Braves offered a five-year deal worth $135 million, but Freeman turned that down in hopes of landing a six-year contract.Braves: Freddie Freeman rumors...

    In an ideal world, the Braves would have already re-signed Freddie Freeman to a six-year contract. Yet, that’s anything but the case. Freeman is the best first baseman on the free agent market, and one year removed from winning the NL MVP. His Braves won the World Series this past postseason, and he’s the face of the franchise — at least for now until he’s overtaken by Ronald Acuña Jr. The 32-year-old would have plenty of suitors if any of them seriously believed he were leaving the Braves. Freeman’s camp has met with the Yankees, for starters, and he’s been rumored to teams like the Dodgers and Angels out West. In recent days, nothing new has broken in regards to Freeman’s market. What does that mean for the Braves? Braves: Freddie Freeman’s stagnant marketFreeman’s free agency hasn’t seen many significant updates since reports that he turned down a five-year offer from the Braves.

    A piano once owned by British rock band Queen is to be sold at auction next month. The instrument is believed to have featured on Queen's 1984 album The Works, which includes the hit single Hammer To Fall. It is expected to fetch between £10,000 and £20,000.

    Former Houston Astros outfielder Josh Reddick decided to try and steal the show after the Atlanta Braves won the World Series.  Countless baseball fans were jumping for joy after the Atlanta Braves got the job done and took down the Houston Astros to win the World Series. After the 2017 sign-stealing scandal, no one outside of Houston wants the Astros to capture the glory anytime soon. Well, Josh Reddick is fully aware of this.

    The Atlanta Braves would prefer to sign Freddie Freeman before he reaches free agency this offseason, but that’s looking more and more unlikely. Freeman is a franchise cornerstone, and the Braves would prefer not to see him play anywhere else. So, then, it should be an easy solution as it pertains to when the Braves will finally sign Freeman to a new contract. How about right now? Sure, in an ideal world, signing Freeman would be a top priority for the Braves front office and they’d get a deal done before the end of the regular season. But, this is a team contending for the postseason and hoping to win the NL East. Redeeming an playoff demons from last season would be nice as well, so you can understand why their attention might be elsewhere. Jon Heyman basically said as much in his update on Freeman contract talks. Freddie Freeman and Braves have been talking but there’s still a gap so free agency appears a surprisingly strong possibility. Both sides want to get it done and that’s the likelihood eventually....

    Anthony Rizzo and Freddie Freeman couldn’t stop smiling as they interacted in a laugher Wednesday night. Why? Because Rizzo was pitching to Freeman at the time and eventually struck him out with a slow curve.

Cubs manager David Ross decided to save some bullpen arms and have multiple position players pitch. Rizzo was the first to go to the mound.

    Nathan Kress, Miranda Cosgrove, Jennette McCurdy, and Jerry Trainor star in Nickelodeon sitcom "iCarly." Nickelodeon "iCarly" is a popular late 2000s Nickelodeon sitcom about teenagers with a web show. While the series sometimes feels dated, it captured viral ambitions that are still prevalent today. The show echoes conflicts, tropes, and milestones in today's influencer space.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. When "iCarly" premiered in 2007, it was a reflection of a mid-aughts aspiration: that anyone with a sense of humor, a camera, and internet access could become famous.  The series, which follows three teenagers who host an incredibly popular web show that's also called iCarly, is chock full of references to late 2000s and early 2010s humor. Bits like the show's iconic "random dancing" sequences, and the completely nonsensical shirts the main characters wear that say things like "Mister Duck Lumps," evoke the era's junior high culture.  But in the years since it debuted, it has taken on a peculiar kind of relevance.

China dream totters on shaky foundations Mortgage rates that were going lower and lower and lower have rapidly bubbled up — to a level not seen in six months, according to a long-running and closely followed weekly survey. © Konstantin L / Shutterstock Mortgage hit a 6-month high. Too late to refi? At least one analyst is ready to declare that the days of record-low rates are behind us now. "The ultra-low rate environment that became the norm in the second half of 2020 appears to have come to an end," says Zillow economist Matthew Speakman. Does that mean it's too late to get a spectacular rate on a new home, or on a refinance that will reduce your monthly mortgage payment? That's an assumption you don't want to make. 30-year mortgages © Provided by MoneyWise reezuan / Shutterstock The average for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage shot up last week to an average 2.97%, according to the 50-year-old survey from mortgage giant Freddie Mac....
    It’s time for the Braves to give Freddie Freeman a big contract extension. The Atlanta Braves have a core of talent in town that is good enough, on paper, to win a World Series. That is likely why the organization just gave manager Brian Snitker a new extension. They know they are close. But there is one move still to make that is painfully obvious. That is to sign Freddie Freeman, who is now in a contract year in 2021. The worst-case scenario would be him playing elsewhere in 2022 instead of alongside Ozzie Albies, Dansby Swanson, Marcell Ozuna and Ronald Acuña Jr.Freddie Freeman needs a new deal as soon as possibleFreeman enters the season as a 31-year-old who just won the National League MVP Award in 2020. That feat came after he had a scary bout with COVID-19 before the season began. The four-time All-Star bounced back and didn’t miss a game. He debuted with the Braves in 2010 and has amassed a career WAR of 38.8 during his career. One thing making a new contract so obvious is...
    Tucking into a barbecue, the shy-looking man in red gives nothing away of his public persona – as famously flamboyant Freddie Mercury. The photograph of Mercury loading up his plate with his Queen bandmate, drummer Roger Taylor, is one of hundreds in an exclusive collection shared here for the band's 50th anniversary. And, as Mercury himself might say, it's guaranteed to blow your mind. It charts the band's story from the birth of its classic line-up of Mercury, Taylor, bass player John Deacon and guitarist Brian May – and includes the touching image of singer Freddie at the barbecue thrown by music producer Roy Baker in 1978 Brian with Stereo Realist (3-D) camera in hand, 1978.

    The most memorable character on “Call Your Mother” is a cute, cuddly golden retriever — which speaks volumes about the show’s chances going forward. ABC’s new sitcom, premiering Wednesday at 9:30 p.m., doesn’t offer much in terms of originality or laughs. Emmy winner Kyra Sedgwick (“The Closer”) stars as a textbook “helicopter mom” and hits all the right scripted notes, but “Call Your Mother” doesn’t distinguish itself from its hundreds of like-minded predecessors (including the canned laughter, always a notch below amped-up in-studio audience whooping — but that might’ve been a COVID-era necessity). ABC made only the premiere available for review — so it’s hard to say if things get better — but, for now, “Call Your Mother” plays as a generic, cookie-cutter sitcom. Given the state of broadcast TV, which is losing viewers hand over fist, that’s not promising. Sedgwick plays Jean Raines, an oversharing widow living in Iowa, far from her twentysomething kids who’ve relocated to LA: daughter Jackie (Rachel Sennott) and her younger brother Freddie (Joey Bragg from Disney Channel’s “Liv & Maddie”), who develops video...

    Freddie Kitchens calling plays for the first time since he was fired against the team that gave him his first opportunity as an offensive coordinator and then gave him the boot as a head coach is … “Kind of ironic,” Kitchens said. That’s as far as Kitchens would go. Kitchens would have been a central storyline in “Sunday Night Football” even if he was just in his regular role as Giants tight ends coach, where he resurfaced after the Browns fired him following last season. But now Kitchens will be the fill-in offensive coordinator – a much more prominent opportunity to exact revenge – because Jason Garrett will miss the game due to a positive COVID-19 test. “It truly is just the next game,” Kitchens said. “We’ve prepared for this throughout the year. It just so happens we had a guy go down this week.” Garrett is still involved in staff meetings through Zoom but Kitchens led the offense at Friday’s practice. Longtime Giants assistant coach Bobby Blick will take over some responsibilities with the tight ends...

    The last time Freddie Kitchens took over another coach’s offense, his career began to skyrocket. Drew Stanton was there in October 2018 as the Browns’ third-string quarterback when a shake-up elevated Kitchens from running backs coach to first-time play-caller. Kitchens faces a similar task Sunday for the Giants as the fill-in offensive coordinator for Jason Garrett, who tested positive this week for COVID-19. “Freddie is the perfect man to fill in for this kind of a role,” Stanton told The Post. “When Todd Haley got fired, it wasn’t Freddie’s offense, but he adapted it to the players around him. This little bit of adversity won’t be anything new. I know without a shadow of doubt Freddie will be prepared to put his best foot forward.” There isn’t a quarterback anywhere with a better read on Kitchens than Stanton, who retired this offseason after a 13-year career. Kitchens was the Cardinals’ quarterbacks coach for four of Stanton’s five seasons in Arizona, including when they teamed to upset the Giants in 2014 with Carson Palmer sidelined.

    MESUT OZIL is one of the best players in the world at picking out a pass, claimed Freddie Ljungberg. The Gunners have suffered from a lack of creativity this season, leaving them slumped at 15th in the table. 2Freddie Ljungberg has praised Mesut Ozil's passing abilityCredit: PA:Press Association Ozil, 32, has been frozen out of the squad by Gunners manager Mikel Arteta. The midfielder, who earns £350,000-per-week, has not featured the club since March 7. Gunners legend Ljungberg, 43, has revealed what Arsenal are missing without Ozil in the team. Speaking on Sky Sports, Arsenal's former interim boss said: "When you have possession or need to find that pass, I don't think there's many better players than Mesut at doing that. "Of course, you lose a bit defensively, but that's the decision they have made. "I don't know why the decision has been made that he is outside of the squad, so they can't use him. "But for those things, I don't see there's many better players in the world." Only two players in the league have...
