Opening Day

Could Braves Surprise?

Spring training breeds eternal optimism and as we move towards Opening Day I am starting to like this Braves team.  If for no other reason than it is completely different from last year’s boring, disjointed, psychological mess.

Could Constanza Win the Left Field Job?

Bloggers, pundits and sportswriters are continually speculating who will be the Braves left fielder, and/or bat lead-off, in 2013.  Many are predicting that GM Frank Wren will make a trade to bring in a warm body. The more time that goes by without any movement leads me to believe that the Braves may look within.  As Dorothy said in The Wizard of Oz, “there’s no place like home.”... »
