Frank Wren: A Retrospective – Part I

September 29, 2014 Brent Blackwell 0

With Frank Wren's tenure now at an end, I felt it time for a comprehensive move-by-move look at his time as General Manager in Atlanta.  This will be lengthy, because comprehensive means comprehensive.  Let's start at the beginning.  Wren was promoted to GM on October 11, 2007, replacing John Schuerholz, who was moving up the…

Georgia/ Tennessee from 30,000 Feet

September 29, 2014 Timothy Peacock 0

First of all, I apologize for being a day late with this. Saturday was a little scary for Georgia fans, to say the least. A loss to Tennessee would have put the Bulldogs squarely behind the 8-ball in the SEC East. No Georgia team has ever lost to two Eastern division foes and still won…

Think you know baseball…Prove it.

What all-time great has posted the highest single season batting average in history?  What Detroit Tiger holds the record for the most career triples? Who holds the single season record for most stolen bases by an Atlanta Brave?  If you think you can handle these types of questions, come on out and play for some…

Who is John Coppolella….

By now, you have probably heard that the Atlanta Braves fired General Manager Frank Wren Monday morning. Special Assistant to the GM John Hart was named interim General Manager.  Manager Fredi Gonzalez was retained, although that could change.  The general feeling seems to be that since Gonzalez had his one-year option exercised by the Braves,…

Nationals at Braves Game 2 Preview….

Fredi Gonzalez and the Braves are in dire need of a win to keep alive the last vestiges of playoff hopes.  Realizing that, Fredi put together his lineup today based on...voodoo?  Random draws out of a hat?  Consulting the Psychic Friends Network?   It isn't going to happen.  The Braves will lose,  the Nationals will…

Georgia/ South Carolina from 30,000 Feet

September 15, 2014 Timothy Peacock 0

A week or so ago on this site, I predicted a 24-20 Georgia win. The 73 total points scored in the game surprised me, but the fact that it was a 60 minute contest that swung on 2 or 3 plays did not. That's the nature of SEC football, particularly when a home underdog has…

Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals Game 1 Preview….

September 15, 2014 Chris Jervis 0

Let's face it: this is about over.  Technically, in the strictest sense, the Braves still have a chance.  Pretty much the same chance I have of hooking up with Sofia Vergara. The Washington Nationals (85-63) take a commanding 10.5 game lead into Turner Field Monday evening as they start a three game series against the…

Braves at Rangers Series Preview…..

  The Atlanta Braves (75-71) are in 'must-win' mode now as the season winds down.  With a win against the Washington Nationals Wednesday afternoon, the Braves temporarily kept their Wild Card hopes alive. They currently trail the Pittsburgh Pirates by 1.5 games in the chase for the second Wild Card spot. The Braves travel to…

Remembering Columbia trips past….

It's Monday night now. Five days from right now, we'll know the outcome of Georgia @ South Carolina. Either the Gamecocks will be virtually eliminated from the SEC race while it's still hot outside, or the Dawgs will suffer a major set back in their own quest to reach Atlanta. It's always a war over…

Bengals show business doesn’t have to trump being human…

September 6, 2014 Chris Jervis 0

For years, it has seemed that the Cincinnati Bengals have run less of a football team than a work release program for troubled NFL players. From 2000 to 2011, the Bengals had their players arrested 32 times, according to a database maintained by the San Diego Times-Union. They only won 73 games in that span.…
