doesnt matter rocks are still a top 25 team

This was game 2 of a double header with temps well below freezing.  I'm pretty sure both pitchers were interested in throwing strikes and hitters not being too picky about working counts.  Thus lots of HRs.

Still cool anyway.

Judging by the audio most of the fans were braves fans, hell one of the guys behind home plate had a braves cap on. Where are the diamondbacks fans who were saying glad to get rid of him when the trade happened?

Also that pic at the top always makes me.laugh too hard

I'm in Alabama, and this actually does happen. People say, "I thought you were from Georgia?"

As an Atlanta Braves fan I am very happy about the team this year.  Frank Wren has done an outstanding job putting this team together talent wise and payroll wise also.  Shurholtz never seemed to pull off that one "deal" which would put them over the top, Wren does.

Planning on going to see one of the games in the Dodgers' series next month.  I bought the all you can eat/drink (including beer) seats and plan on drinking enough beers to cancel out the ticket cost.  At $8.00 a beer that shouldn't be too hard.

Not going to lie, it's tough to justify that trade right now. The only thing one can fall back on is that the earliest JUp hit his 10th HR of any season prior to this year was May 30 (2011, when he hit 31 HRs). So this still feels like it's an aberration to some extent.

Of course, he still only has 16 RBIs (only 1 HR with a runner on base). That's not something to be excited about if you're a Braves fan. A team isn't likely to win consistently if they're either hitting a homer or not getting on base at all.

Why do we never see a Braves meme with "Johnson here" and "Johnson here" as well?

I mean, they're not brothers, and usually both would be in the dugout, but they're doing pretty darn well themselves.

Hey the yankees won in the 90s with that philosophy so Im not worried at all, just remember freddie was injured for a while, McCann has not even played this year, and BJ Upton hasnt really started to hit yet, if anything I would be extremely scared of this team if I were in the national league.

Was about to do the "Bangor?, I don't even know her!" joke, than I remembered that's about Maine.

What's the penalty for screwing those two up?
