Road to 69: Brad Complacent

The Braves are not going to win 69 games. They’ll be fortunate to make it to 60. Everybody with any sense of reality was expecting this to be a bad season. And yet, the club from Atlanta has managed to

Road to 69: What’s Up with Freddie?

When I first started researching for today’s post, Freddie Freeman was in the midst of one of the worst slumps in his career. It was so bad that for one game Fredi had him batting as far down as 6th

Road to 69: Nick Markakis Improvements

While taking an admittedly less involved role here at ye olde Braves General Store, there is one piece that I have been preparing for all year. After SRB trashed my choice of Hosier as having the #2 album of 2014
