    Default Atlanta Braves

    Fun team to watch right now.

    7-1 since Acuna joined. Teheran carried a no-no into the 7th today. 11-0 victory over the Mets for the sweep and a 2nd day in 1st place.

    Hope they can continue. As a loyal fan it has been tough to watch 100 plus games a year and more than half be losses.

    My man. Solidify the bullpen. If we can get Bautista up and get any production out of him. We could make a good run. Another legit starter would be nice as well. Definitely fun to watch!

    Indeed. I'm glad I'm headed back south to watch them. I'm sick of the Cardinals and always hearing about them

    Kids. Look at the birthdates of the 40 man roster. Markakis is the oldest, born in 83

    90's braves- a bunch of kids with 2 old guys (Terry Pendelton and Otis Nixon)

    2018 braves- a bunch of kids with 2 old guys (Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis)

    Just saying, are we on the verge of seeing another run in Hotlanta? Its been 20+ years. It may be time. I'm always hopeful.

    They damn sure do.One thing missing from this Roster that the team that lost 13 of 14 in the playoffs is continuity. Most of the early roster from the 90's team all played together coming up through the system. Greenville had one helluva AA team before that run started.

    They are a lot of fun to watch. The youth, speed, and power. They are having fun

    I have actually been keeping up with them this year for the first time in a while. They’ve been fun to watch. I still can’t believe greenville screwed up and let the Greenville braves leave. That day, and the day foothills fly shop closed down we’re some of the saddest nostalgic days for me.

    I think if Rafael belliard gets hired as a coach there will be no stopping them

    Albies, Acuna, Camargo, Soroka, and even Dansby all played together from A-AAA

    The first three playing the most together

    A lot of them came through Sumter in single A too. Chipper joined the year they left Sumter for Macon. Those 90's teams felt like the hometown team. I watched them for $3 a ticket.

    3 youngest players in baseball in soroka, acuna, and albies. offense is humming and the pitching talent in the minors is absolutely stacked. if braves are still in contention at all star break i wouldn't mind seeing them try to move some assets to try to bolster their position for a post-season run. they have a ton of cap space they can work with. fun time to be a braves fan
