Colby Wilson’s Atlanta Braves Report: Retro Braves

 

Atlanta BravesClarksville, TN As far back as I can remember, the Braves were fine. Nearly always good, occasionally great. Sure, there was that 2008 team that was underachieving and unfortunate and doesn’t bear any measure of discussion. But from the time I started paying attention to baseball, I could nearly always count on Atlanta being involved in meaningful games in August and September.

So 2015 will be slightly different.

AAA and Bud Light ask anyone celebrating with alcohol to plan ahead. That means using a Designated Driver, staying where you are celebrating, or arranging for a sober ride home such as a taxi or a ride-share program.
