2015 Atlanta Braves thread

Postby reagan SMASH » Thu Jan 15, 2015 10:23 am

Anyone else a Braves fan? I've been following them since I was kid, when there were no Florida teams and I could watch them all the time on TBS. I still remember being so excited when I bought a David Justice/Ron Gant/Otis Nixon poster from Publix and proudly displayed it in my room. Kids are odd.

Any thoughts on the recent moves? I thought the Heyward and Gattis trades got strong returns, not as much on Upton. Still a bit of a weird feeling to have both my favorite pro sports team in full rebuild mode.

If no one else is a fan, that'll just give me an excuse to go full Morgan and have a solid internet discussion between myself. I'm not sure which scenario I'm rooting for more.

There are other Braves fans here, we just tend to all post in the MLB thread. Not a lot of discussion in there, so it's easy to keep up with conversations with in the thread.

No big deal. I'm always down to talk some Braves baseball. If it takes off, I'll keep the talk to this thread. If not, I'll just keep up with the baseball thread.

I was a huge Andruw Jones fan growing up. He was almost guaranteed to be on SportsCenter Top 10 on a daily basis. Solid hitter, great fielder. He was always exciting to watch play ever since he burst on to the scene in the playoffs versus the Yankees.

How about if you try out, the Mets have to take BJ Upton off the Braves hands. Deal?

I guess as much as he sucks, he wanted to keep the jokes to a minimum.

Craig Kembral & MELVIN Upton to San Diego for Cameron Maybin & Carlos Quentin, a prospect and a draft pick.

It's not like the Braves are going to need a closer much this year anyway..

A closer is a luxury.. And that was the price tag to get San Diego to take the terrible Upton off their hands.

Good move for the braves at this rebuilding point in time.

This. IMO closer is the most overrated position in baseball. Not hard to find a guy who can get 3 outs. No the big picture here is they no longer have that ridiculous contract on their hands. Plus they got a nice draft pick along with some good prospects. Getting back to the Braves of old who won with pitching and developed their own guys.

Pretty cool that they made the rendering with a playoff crowd.
