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.

I think they really got a good shot this year because there bullpen is alot better then last year.

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.

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      Wow nice fish

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
