Only a 7 inning game today do the bad storms in Atlanta.
I flew from Vegas to Atlanta to Memphis. Was delayed in Atlanta due by on the weather.
Braves win is all that matters.

The final Braves game is quickly approaching. Oct 2nd!

Grats to Freddie Freeman - getting his average over .300, showing he is becoming a first base version of Chipper Jones. .302/.397/.556, 78 extra base hits and counting. Finally having someone behind him who's a power threat certainly seems to have helped.

Back to back wins against the Mets.
Bartolo Colon takes the mound for them today as a big favorite.

Inciarte's game-saving catch... baseball's defensive play of the year? That play tore the heart out of the Mets.

Ender might've single handedly cost the Mets a playoff spot last night.

The Marlins won last night's game 6-4.


Today's Marlins/Braves game has been cancelled, after the news of Marlins ace Jose Fernandez being killed in a boating accident early this morning.

Braves trade Gordon Beckham to the Giants for cash.

Kinda odd seeing them close Turner this weekend, I wanna feel like I want to be all nostalgic, but not really.
Where the offseason has more buzz happens.

Well, at least the Braves finished the season strong and ahead of 4 other teams - 3 of them by a half game. Progress was definitely made this year - though we expected the young starting pitchers to do better as a whole.

Great end of the season. Momentum has been built for next year.

Each team starts next season 0-0.

But it's clear this young team is on the rise. We're flush with cash and rising stars that will benefit from a trying year that ended on a great note.

The only thing I'm looking forward to more than the 2017 Braves season...is that 2018 Braves season!!!

Kudos to the Johns for positioning us incredibly well over the last 18 months. The next 18 months should be fun to watch!

Agreed. The Johns have done this the right way, rebuilding through the farm system and not just looking for the quick fixes when it would've been easy to do so (before trading Heyward and everyone else).

The process was expedited with the Swanson trade and that obviously helped.
