Is there a 3D seat viewing app for Turner?
I just got tix for the last game of the year and want to show my wife where we'll be sitting. Some stadiums have 3D viewers that let you virtually view the field from your seat - they've had it in Cincinnati for a few years. Is there anything like that for Turner? I've looked around but can't find one. ... 13 Aug 2010 14:44
Chipper to have surgery, season over
This seemed very likely already, but Chipper had first wanted to get a second opinion. Now it's official: http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/story/13748954/chipper-to-have-knee-surgery-needs-about-six-months-for-recovery/rss Colin ... 13 Aug 2010 14:44

Chipper tears his ACL
Out for the season, obviously. Gotta think there's a good chance that ends his career as well. So who plays where the rest of the season? Glaus at 3rd and Freeman at 1st? Prado at 3rd and Infante at 2nd? ... 13 Aug 2010 21:17
Chipper on his latest injury...

I don�t think it�s my ACL, �cause when I did it before it sounded like my knee exploded. It sounded like the whole stadium could hear it pop. ... 11 Aug 2010 17:00
Filling in for Chipper
If Chipper is out for an extended amount of time, can Glaus still play 3B? That would give us an opportunity to bring up Freddie Freeman to cover 1B and still keep our reserves in their current roles. ... 11 Aug 2010 09:19

I watched only the first five innings or so of the game last night. I see why the Braves like Mike Minor. He looks to have excellent control and a nice variety of pitches. I was surprised to see that the speed of his fastball was not 90-91 MPH as been mentioned, but was more like 92-93. He struck out one ba... 10 Aug 2010 08:04

First-base prospect scorching at Triple-A
ATLANTA -- While the Braves struggle with production at first base, top prospect Freddie Freeman is red-hot with Triple-A Gwinnett. The left-handed hitter was 4-for-5 with two doubles and three RBIs in an 11-7 victory at Lehigh Valley on Saturday night, raising his average to ..305 as he continued a steady cli... 8 Aug 2010 23:20

Lots of rumors out there right now - latest I read over at BTF was Rick Ankiel and Kyle Farnsworth (!) to the Braves. Chone Figgins' name was thrown aound for a bit, but I haven't seen that confirmed, plus Wilkin ramirez of the tigers (.303 OBP in 165 AAA games = ugh). Colin ... 31 Jul 2010 17:20

Venters' suspension rescinded
I know they often get reduced, but I can't think of a previous incident where MLB concluded that an HBP was completely unintentional and rescinded the suspension http://blogs.ajc.com/atlanta-braves-blog/2010/07/30/venters-suspension-rescinded-entirely/?cxntfid=blogs_atlanta_braves_blog Colin ... 31 Jul 2010 14:03
What about Jim Edmonds?
Is there any good reason the Braves shouldn't be making a play for Jim Edmonds from Milwaukee? The Brewers are going nowhere, he's cheap, but his contract's up after this season so he shouldn't cost a top-level prospect. I've seen rumors of interest from Boston, but heard nothing re: Atlanta.
