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.

So 2015 will be slightly different.
