With the Braves having clinched their first NL East title since 2005, the question heading into the playoffs is whether their offense will show up. The pitching has been there all year, the bats have gone quiet far to often. The problem has certainly not been Freddie Freeman, who leads the team in RBIs and always seems to get a hit when the team needs it. Freddie Freeman’s girlfriend Chelsea Goff is proof that he’s lighting it off the field as well.
With some sleuthing, we discovered that Freddie and Chelsea have been dating since July 2011. It seems the couple took things slow at first, as Chelsea stayed in Florida until moving up to Atlanta in December 2012. Thankfully for Chelsea, her two careers translate most anywhere – real estate and modeling.
Coming up to the majors, Freeman understood what kind of lifestyle that most players lead. There would be women, alcohol, swearing… all of which clash with his religion. Freeman is a 6th generation Salvationist. Yes, the Salvation Army. With his faith backing him, Freeman was able to keep his focus on baseball and become one of the best first baseman in the majors.

Tim Hudson went down with a nasty injury a few weeks back against the Mets. While covering first, his foot was stepped on by Eric Young Jr and Hudson suffered a broken ankle. While this was a big loss for the Braves, the impact would be less so in a Hudson family softball game as Tim Hudson's wife Kim Hudson has some skills of her own.
Staring on Blitz Krieg, Kim Hudson flashes the leather at second base for her team in a local softball league. But that's not all she does. She is also a lawyer by day. We'll go out on a limb and say Tim probably doesn't fancy him a man of the law books, giving the household talent edge to Kim.
The Hudson's met while both attended Auburn. Kim tutored Tim and says they were friends about a year before dating. Kim Hudson (formerly Bruner) founded The Hudson Family Foundation in 2009 as a way to helps out children in need. The couple was married in 1999 and have three children (Kennedie, Tess and Kade)

My official reaction when the Braves trade for Justin Upton was that of reserved excitement, but in my mind I was running around jumping for joy. It's not everyday that your favorite team trades for your fantasy crush, especially if they only have to give up 60 cents on the dollar.
I tempered my expectations coming into the season, mostly because Upton was a huge disappointment in 2012. Maybe it was moving out of the desert or maybe it was joining up with his brother BJ, but something clicked for Upton as he is off to the best start to a season in his career. Braves fans love it, including the newest Braves' fan, Justin Upton's girlfriend Ashley Borror.
There really isn't a lot of information out there about Justin and Ashley's relationship, but they have been together since 2008. She was referred to by name in an article by ESPN in September 2012. We're all but certain that Ashley is still Justin Upton's girlfriend based on her Twitter account. She has recently began following Craig Kimbrel's wife, Freddie Freeman and the Braves official account. Ashley also has complained about Atlanta traffic in the past months (and having driven in it, I can't blame her. Just awful).
Following the 2012 season, the couple built a massive home in Arizona. With the somewhat surprising move to Atlanta, the couple won't be spending regular seasons in the new digs, but word if they are keeping it for the offseasons or looking to move it (because you know, it's so easy to move 12,000 square foot mansions in this housing market).
That's all we've got for now. As Upton continues his dominance, there's a good chance Ashley will receive more press so be sure to check back later.
