Minter, Preston Tucker, Dansby Swanson, and more to come. Like every season in the past 4-5 years, there’s a whole…

All-Time Favorite Atlanta Braves, #2 & #1

Tomorrow, we will have a new season. A fresh sense of hope. It’s been a while since we’ve had real hope for our Atlanta Braves. Tomorrow, fresh young faces take the stage and over the course of the season, hopefully, other fresh faces will dethrone space filling veterans. By the end of the year, I hope that we see a different, youthful team that injects energy into a disgruntled (and rightfully so) fanbase. But, one last…

Will the 2017-18 Offseason be Known as the One that Got Away?

The 2018 Atlanta Braves Offseason has been fun, eh? Yes, the most important thing that needed to happen did happen: the riddance of Matt Kemp. But what else? Not much. The Braves are looking at testing their prospect depth to the fullest in 2018 and that is at least cheer-worthy. Projecting the 2018 Atlanta Braves Yeah, about that. Projecting wins for any team in any given year is educated guesswork based on formulas and trends.…
