Braves are building a new stadium (or, rather, having Cobb County build them a new stadium), pretty much because they think white people don't want to go to Turner Field.

It's the Steinbrenner moving the Yankees to Jersey argument, only they actually followed through.

I heard Danny Ferry was hired to their marketing team.

That area in Atlanta is very new, clean, blah blah blah.

But why anyone would abandon public transportation is beyond me. And Atlanta's public transit is nice and cheap.

That's a recipe for many thousands of empty seats once the novelty of the new park wears off.

There are faults with the Philly sports complex setup, but having all the stadiums together in an area with plenty of parking and a subway line that runs right up to all of them is pretty good all things considered.

There was a time not terribly long ago that the old Foxboro/Schaefer/Sullivan Stadium used to feature tens of thousands of fans disguised as empty metal benches on any given Sunday. Winning sells tickets, though not always in Atlanta as the Braves had many non sell out playoff games. Take the Braves into the burbs with the team they field currently, place will be empty.

Fuck the St. Louis Cardinals and their shitbag fans.

Cubs humiliated them tonight, just like in last year's NLDS.

LETS GO.

23 years ago today, a fly ball bounced off Jose Canseco's head and went over the fence for a home run.

I'm surprised that doesn't happen more often with all the DHs playing the outfield.
