Andrelton Simmons Trade Fallout

We are in mid November, so four and a half months until Braves Opening Day.  A lot can happen between now and then, but I’m curious how the heck the Braves plan on selling tickets in 2016. When I say a lot could happen, I am referring to the roster.  Could the Braves do an about face and acquire some honest to goodness, real major leaguers, between now and the beginning of next season?  The ... »

Chipper Jones Guzzling the Kool-Aid

Our beloved Chipper Jones is evidently guzzling John Hart‘s Kool-Aid and smacking his lips it tastes so good. Chipper is wholeheartedly behind the Braves dumping Kimbrel. Based on this mentality, why not go ahead and dump Freddie Freeman and Andrelton Simmons, too.  Go ahead and throw in Teheran, Alex Wood and Shelby Miller while you are on a roll.  The Braves should get rid of all their goo... »

John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, Chipper Jones, Fred McGriff… those players went about their business like robots, efficient in thei... »

Nationals Stars Not Impressed with Braves

Some bulletin board material that may motivate the Braves a little bit has appeared, as Washington Nationals star Jayson Werth talked to the Washington Post’s Adam Kilgore about the National League East race before Tuesday’s game.  Werth was asked whether he thinks the Phillies or Braves are the Nationals’ biggest challenger. “Phillies,” Werth said. “I think everybody is writing ... »
