    I get amused with the ff hate on here. If u wanna see true utter disdain all u have to do is be a fly on the wall at my house when Tyler flowers is in the lineup

    Worst defensive catcher in baseball. Awful!!!

    Hard to believe he leads the team in triples. LOL. I say its because the defense goes to sleep when hes up and then has to wake up and run get the ball when he gets a knock. HAHA

    Man, the Braves and me over the years. First game was At Atl Fulton County stadium in 83. Got to see Horner, Raffie Ramirez, Hubbard, Washington, and my main man, Dale Freakin Murphy. The whole game some bozo next to us was yelling at Claudell Washington to go do some blow. I guess he failed a drug test around that time or something because this guy laid into him all night. It was a blast though.

    Heard this jackass (Tyler flowers) the other day talking about his pass balls and said something to the effect of “ he has so many moving parts when catching , much like a swing , that when one gets off it throws everything off “. I can only assume he’s referring to that dumb ass snatching shit he attempts to do and often misses it completely. Either way that’s the single dumbest thing I’ve ever heard a professional Catcher say

    Max is dealing. When he has his "spin stuff" on he is legit. We can choke them out this weekend.

    Yep, he looked unbelievable. If we can take 3 or 4 from them right here it would really demoralize them.

    Your right about Fulton co stadium. That was my childhood with braves and falcons. Both it and the ted were garbage stadiums but the vibe was always legit with atl in the backdrop , crack heads outside and the street vendors that I miss so much. They did a phenomenal job with everything in Cobb , just wish they could pick it up and throw it right next to the capitol lol

    We went to the Sunday game against the Dodgers a few weeks ago and got to meet Murphy and take pics and get autos. He will always be my favorite brave ever

    I still miss Skip and Pete and all the games on TBS. I remember the late 70's when Ted would show up in the booth and rant on the air about his team's performance while the boys had to just sit there and listen in embarrassed silence.

    Didn't Murph hit a game winning pinch hit home run one time to keep his consecutive game streak intact when he was unable to start the game?

    I really liked Hank Aaron, Eddie Mathews, and Warren Spahn, but I am old.

    I have to say that I am a Dale Murphy fan. He was one of the best at hitting a high fastball: the pitch everybody thinks they can hit and very few can. Normally the pitcher's friend, but not to Dale.

    But these other guys were extra special.

    And Babe Ruth was a Brave at the end of his career. Is he still the GOAT?
