    #BoycottBraves

    Braves non-tendered Charlie Culberson, our best clutch player. Canít compare him to Camargo or the worst catcher in the entire sport known as Flowers. Fans have already started to throw up boycott tweets, posts, etc. Iím calling it, they better get their heads out of their asses or for the first time in over I say at least 15 years, I wonít be watching any games. From watching 162 Braves games to 0. Guess maybe I can focus on the Angels and get to know the team I grew up watching when we lived in South California.

    Re: #BoycottBraves

    The Braves have a strong team, a legit WS contender, and are very active in the offseason thus far and you're going to boycott over losing someone with a career 80 OPS+?

    FIFY. See? Now his grief is all the more understandable.

    I responded this in the middle of a hectic work day.

    Was this sarcasm that went over my head?

    I was being sarcastic but I don't think DravenX was.

    I didn't say I would yet but they are active and with the winter meetings starting I'm hoping they can get even better. They went out and got Hamels and I heard that Liberty Media wants to spend money to improve the team. Question is, how much?

    Yep, they are betting that Hamels will be like he was prior to the injury which AA stated last night on MLB Network.

    Marcelle Ozuna turned down a 3 year, $50M offer from the Reds so he could sign with your team on a 1 year deal worth $18M. I'm jealous.
