Me and my friend Zac at Turner field last weekend! I had a random smile, but it’s a great picture!
My seats at the game tonight!!! GO BRAVOS!
He’s a 26-year-old rookie who I believe will have a great career. I think most Braves fans, myself included, will be sad the day that Brian McCann signs for another team; but the truth is that he probably will next year. Money will go towards pitching and extending our existing young players. Back to Gattis. He’s done everything the Braves have asked out of him and then more. He hit this fourth pinch-hit home run tonight and he continues to produce for the Braves, no matter when or where he plays. He’s just a pure hitter. I think he will be the Braves starting catcher next year with either Laird or Bethancourt backing him up. Think about this: A rookie who doesn’t get every day at-bats has a slash line of .254 AVG, 9 HR, 23 RBI’s, 16 R and 30 hits… with FIVE pinch hits, all extra bases hits… 20 of those hits are for extra-bases. He’s the real deal guys.
It takes place on June 28th and I’ll be at the Ted to watch it! I’ve been to several Braves games, but I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited. It doesn’t hurt that I get to watch Up, Up and a Hey along with Prado who will be a Diamondback! Today keeps getting better.
I couldn’t be more proud of this team. I thank Chipper first and foremost. He’s the best and i’m truly grateful for everything he’s done for this team… going to miss him. 94 wins is pretty amazing! My favorite thing about this team was how great our pitching was the second half and I’m so glad our guys pulled it together. Never did I expect our most reliable pitchers to be Mike Minor and Kris Medlen. I really can’t wait until next year, we have so much young talent on this team!!
Thank you Chipper!
Oh and thanks for the terrible call, baseball.
Left field seats at Turner!!
