Atlanta Braves.

20 posts in this topic

I know where all from Minnesota, but how many atlanta braves fan we have out there. I am a HUGE braves fan. Chipper Jones Lover. I believe they have there team back to where they were before. They dont have the big guns like back in the day, but they have a team that is put together to make a run again.

Who else is with me!!!!!!!!!!

I'm with ya! Life long fan. Bullpen looks GREAT! Rotation has the makings to be strong and still the best coach in the majors. Outfield is the best defensively and 2 of three are great hitters. Catcher ranks among the best there is. Infield is the only question mark. The left side is fairly strong (if chipper can remain healthy). Hopefully Johnson and Thorman can hold their own, and we'll be alright!

Love to hear that chant in October!

I am watching the Pre Season game, and they had a interview with chipper. He said that its never going to be 100%, which is something that everyone should know. But they had him move up a show size, to place support inside the shoe. He said that he hurts the most on solid ground, but wants to be in eevery game that he can. He wants to play 150 games. Thats huge. I hope he can.

Big Braves fan here too. Got it from my dad, he was a Mil. braves fan and followed them when they moved south. I try to get to a Braves game once a year when they play the Brewers or if they get the Twins. High hopes for this young club if they can stay healthy. I gotta believe this could be Cox last year.

The only baseball on TV up north years ago was the Braves. The games would play normal time and repeat after midnight. Great teams with Murphy, Sarge and others.

I have been a huge fan forever. I remember the days where i would watch braves games over and over again. TBS is the way to go now days.

Actually TBS is scheduled to show less Braves games this year than ever. And starting next year they will show random games, not Braves games. Oh, how I miss Turner!!! He was a GREAT owner. Not a Steinbrenner (Thank goodness!) but he allowed the team to compete. Now it's corporate b.s.

Miss Turner for sure. Games on TBS almost every night and he wasn't afraid to spend the money.

I've watched 7 Braves games in my whole life. That's when they lost to the Twins in the world series.

Isnt that a fact. I think they are going to be a team to beat. The best thing i can say, is there bull pen is alot better, yet there going to still have to hit the ball. If they hit the ball, there going to be a tough beat.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
