    Steve, I TOTALLY agree that is Maddux had picked the Cubs I would have been ticked. After hearing how many years he spent with the Cubs, I was like really? Do I think he should go in as a Brave? Of course! But that is my opinion. On the other hand I admire his loyalty to the Cubs. Either way…he will always be a Brave to me and I think everyone here.

    Poor jim Rice……. he will ALWAYS be the HOF guy who people will say “well if Jim Rice got in…. then my guy should.”

    Does anyone think that it is harder to get into the baseball HOF than the football HOF?

    RE: Those questioning signing Heyward and/or #1 Starter


    That is what I have been writing about in my two other messages. Guys, you seem smart and generally aware of the state of ATL baseball. Isn’t it obvious that ATL’s current financial status is going to make us irrelevant in the near future?

    Q: Why doesn’t ATL sign their current young stars to extensions, or a no. 1 starter?

    A: They can’t afford to (with limits to payroll placed on them by Liberty). It has remained stagnant for over a decade. Though money is just a portion to building & maintaining a ball club, it is what makes those questions moot. Because of that TV deal and the tight-clenched grip on payroll, players see the writing on the wall. I’m afraid it’s going to be painfully obvious just how much BJ costs in the near future…I hope I’m wrong, and I hope he can turn things around. As for the $$$ thing, I don’t know what the answer is.

    It was insane, Will. I was lucky as my house is close to the office and I needed only to go 2 exits south on the interstate. My 9 mile commute took an hour and a half.

    Jason Heyward deserves 8 years as well. As well as Andrelton Simmons. If the Braves wanna compete in the future, Simmons, Heyward, and Freeman are the core. If we lose any 1 of these 3 with no money and no positional prospects coming up then we aren’t that good.

    Walker Says:

    Oh well, I’m reading twitter and multiple people say in two years Heyward is probably gone in two years. Its really ashame. I love Fredi and the deal is great but I truly think Heyward is a better player.
