The State of the Braves’ Union

Posted May 12, 2008 by Alan L Parrish

The Atlanta Braves, winners of ten straight NL East Pennants and the 1995 World Champions, have looked down right putrid these past couple of years.  However, with a new GM, some new faces, a few familiar ones, and the same Hall of Fame manager, this could be the year the Braves return to the top [...]

The End of an Era in Atlanta

Posted October 4, 2006 by gtjacket

It was a golden age for Atlanta:  14 consecutive division titles, 5 National League pennants, 1 World Series victory.  From the improbable turnaround from obscurity in 1991 to the final playoff meltdown in the 2005 Division Series, the Braves were royalty in the baseball realm and were consequently perpetual targets, adding even more mystique to [...]

Confessions of an Atlanta Braves hater

Posted April 15, 2006 by RJ Warner

Who’s sick of the Atlanta Braves? If I asked ten people, I bet nine would raise their hands. I was always sick of them. More than any Mets fan, Phillies fan or any NL East wanna be du-jour.

The Young and the Restless

Posted June 30, 2005 by wrpayne

Throughout the current baseball season, the Atlanta Braves have seen their world be turned upside down.  A team that was so consistent over thirteen rigorous seasons now finds itself with what seems like new players everyday.  And this has happened to team that isn’t used to changing its lineup card every single day.  Consistency has [...]

The Pride of the Farm System

Posted June 4, 2005 by Dawg

For many years, thirteen to be exact, the Braves have arguably been the most consistent team in baseball. Thirteen consecutive division titles is a record that no team in any sport has matched. Many things go into such a feat. Luck, a Hall of Fame caliber manager, pitching coach, and general manager, and great players [...]

Atlanta Braves – Postseason Curse?

Posted October 27, 2004 by gtjacket

For the last 13 seasons there has been but one constant: that the Atlanta Braves will win their division.  There has been one other near-constant: that the Atlanta Braves will lose in the playoffs.
