Robert JacksonJust another figure head here to patronize the fans and feed us B'S, as we all know the cheap owners will never do anything to improve the club beyond token gestures!! And that's how pessimistic and disillusioned a 37 year fan has become about the Atlanta Braves!!

Byron DavidsonIf you are a Braves fan and you see other teams wheeling and dealing to land an exceptional free agent or a blockbuster trade to make their teams a contender.....this is not the headline you really want to see..... "Braves used the week to develop camaraderie" What about finding a stud starting pitcher, middle relief or trading two outfielders I can see it on opening day....."we still have our two veteran outfielders, same middle relief and no we didn't find a #1 veteran pitcher to lead our young guys......but hey we sure get along great"!!!! Like the song says...."A little less talk and a lot more action"!!

Jeannie 'n Paul OttoThat burner was on HIGH! I wish the commissioner would prosecute Copallela, HART, and every Braves front office person who brought in these two! The TEAM, current players who love and are devoted to the BRAVES are bearing the brunt and paying the price! Hold the managerial staff ACCOUNTABLE!!

Dan GacntryI STILL say sign Todd Frasier for a couple of years till Riley Austin is ready. Id go after Arieta before the Nats get him. He'll bounce back. Wish list is for us go to get JD Martinez or Jay Bruce and if we're ready for Acuna to start on day 1, trade both Nick and Matt Kemp.

Dan GacntryTODAY per MLB.com: The Dodgers and Braves completed a five-player swap on Saturday, with Adrian Gonzalez, Brandon McCarthy, Scott Kazmir, Charlie Culberson and cash considerations going to Atlanta for Matt Kemp. The cash being sent to Atlanta is $4.5 million, according to MLB Network insider Jon Heyman.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, The Braves then just RELEASED Gonzalez. I guess their thinking is if McCarthy and Kazmir has anything left, they might be good for the pitching staff. If non of these players pan out, why not just CUT release Kemp,, then again, getting 4.5 Million back, I'm guessing is what they really was wanting.

Steve MillicanCan't understand people that comment that this or that team sucks when they had to LIKE the page for it to show up on their timeline. While this team isn't the best right now, it beats the crap out of the Braves teams I grew up rooting for as a kid. The ones with Murphy, Horner, Neikro on them. While those players were great and memorable, the other 20 something players weren't very good. I rooted for them then, I rooted for them in their 15 divisional titles to only get ONE WS win and I'll CONTINUE to root for them now!! Don't care what the nay sayers say, this is MY team and I stand by them through ALL the ups and downs, that's what I do!!!

Rob MerlinoMerry Christmas from Sarasota county, home of your future spring training facility. I wonder if the braves organization is aware that county commissioners are cutting the maintenance budget off for two youth sports complexes in the city of Venice citing budget shortfalls due to expenditures for your new complex. Seems kind of anti Christmas that a major league sports team would be responsible for placing an entire community's youth sports facilities in jeopardy. Shame on the Braves and shame on Sarasota county!

Chris GonzalesUnfortunately shortly after this the tree and santa was traded by the braves to the Yankees for a yellow cab with no tires.

Matthew AngelyDale Murphy was always my favorite player growing and to this day I still like him and respect how he played the game. Even as a die hard Braves fan, his numbers aren’t Hall of Fame caliber numbers. His lifetime average is in the 260’s, Homeruns just under 400, his strikeout numbers were almost double his walks. From 1982-1987 he was one of the most feared players in the game. But, unfortunately he didn’t have enough good years. Then fast forward we had another player like that in the late 90’s into the early 2000’s.

Mark FloreyIt should have never gotten this far dale should have been in years ago. The clowns that vote on this are ridiculous. They just let Alan trammel in really?? No one outside of Detroit even remembers him!! He was average at best. This is a embarrassment and a disgrace

Michael J. SplinterFewer than 1,300 career RBI probably hurts his cause. But the gold glove-caliber defense should overcome that. I think he belongs in the Hall. As far as the RBI tally goes, Fred McGriff is right up there with Willie McCovey and Willie Stargell, both Hall of Famers. He's not getting consideration either. I do kind of like the exclusiveness of the Baseball Hall of Fame compared to other sports, but they go overboard with it. No one visiting the Hall of Fame should have any problem with Dale Murphy being a member.

Wayne KirklandDo we realize how many baseball players have basically the same numbers or better. In order to put Dale in it would open up the door for thousands more with similar numbers. I'm a big Dale fan but we just can't justify a 265 avg and 398 HR with HOF numbers.

Thomas A. Jones IIII️ met Dale Murphy for five minutes recently. Took the time to take a picture of me and also my friend individually with him. I️ am 45 so it was an honor to meet him as well with my friend. The man is genuine and his character speaks for itself considering other players in Hall of Fame, which differentiates himself from other players with same numbers. The man did it the right way and character should be a part of Hall of Fame.

Jj LewisI'm surprised the Braves haven't elected Tommy John into their Hall of Fame. Braves collect more TJ players every year. Welcome to the Atlanta Braves. Home of Tommy John receipts.
