Clarksville, TN – Over the weekend, news trickled out that the Braves had kicked the tires on Jonathan Lucroy, injured All-Star catcher for the dumpster fire that is the Milwaukee Brewers. And this is not to knock Lucroy – a fine catcher who has proven to be worth his weight in pitch-framing and gap-to-gap power – but rather illustrate how disenfranchised the brass has become with Christian Bethancourt.
Seems odd to already be sniffing around for replacements for the Catcher of the Future after 183 big-league at-bats, yet here we (allegedly) are. Lucroy is 29, Bethancourt is 23. Math says Bethancourt is the play for the present and future. But he’s hitting .190 and has ridden pine for much of the season behind A.J. Pierzynski, both because Pierzynski has been raking (13-game hitting streak to start the year, third on the team in hitting at a .281 clip) and because Bethancourt has looked lost at the plate and merely competent defensively.

Austin Peay State University professor Stefan Woltmann featured in National Geographic article on Gulf of Mexico oil spill
Clarksville, TN – Five years after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which flooded nearly five million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, scientists are still struggling to unravel the mysteries of a natural habitat deeply impacted by the largest oil spill in U.S. waters.
National Geographic recently published the first part of a five-part series marking the incident’s fifth anniversary. In the first installment, titled “Is Gulf Oil Spill’s Damage Over or Still Unfolding?,” the magazine probed the minds of scientists and researchers devoting their time to discovering the way millions of gallons of oil has changed, or will continue to change, the Gulf of Mexico and the creatures that call that landscape home.
