After a disappointing 4-6 road trip, the Braves return home for a quick 7 game home stand. While some of the on-field play has been a little questionable, the pre-game, in-game and post-game entertainment is A+! (mainly because this is my dept)
This blog is basically a Braves Press Release that I have edited down to the good parts and I’ve added some thoughts.
So here’s what’s going on at The Ted!
