I have really lost interest in baseball over the last few years. I wasn't too crazy about the way the league handled something that they knew was going on and turned their backs on. I especially hated the way everybody crucified Barry Bonds.

I have very little interest in the Giants nowadays but maybe Tim Lincecum can change things back to the way they use to be.
I recall the Giants leading the division. The Braves obtained Fred McGriff. Dusty Baker proclaimed Fred wasn't going to be enough. He wasn't worried about the Braves. On Fred's first night in Atlanta, the press box caught fire, literally, and Skip and the crew broadcast that came on live TV from the stands. Atlanta went on a roll and ultimately overtook the Giants that year.

'member? LOL

Re: Braves Fans Speak Up!

Ok, I await the boo's here, but I'm a longtime Yankee fan. My Grandfather, Father, and brother, are all Yankee fans too. We used to watch Reggie Jackson play, when I was a kid. I always like Billy Martin too. With the Yanks winning the series, the Saints winning the superbowl, I'm a pretty happy sports fan right now. I like the Hornets too, but Chris Paul has gotta stay healthy or they are dead in the water.

I like many of the Yankee players from over the years, but you officially suck. The Yankees as an organization are evil and must be destroyed. LOL

Don't watch man. It will be brutal. Just...I dunno...watch lifetime or something, but do NOT turn on that game.

I do. I don't know if it was the same year...but I also remember that the Giants had a sizable lead and blew it. That was a berry, berry bitter pill to swallow.

Trust me, I have heard it all. I wear my Yankee's hat all the time, and it's like a beacon for hatred. I don't care though. Sometimes it's better to be hated for things you do well, than loved for the things you don't.

They spend money, that any other team in the MLB could spend, if they wanted too. That makes them evil? Come on man.... When we were beating the Braves every year back in the late nineties, most of that team, came up in our farm club. It's all good though. "New York, New York!"
