I hope Frank and Fredi join the caravan in Snellville. These guys do not get the credit they deserve and get too much flak. I want to personally thank them for the work they do to make the Braves a very good team. Tied for the 4th best regular season record in MLB in 2012 is not too shabby.

Will the Braves retract their controversial, ill-advised new batting practice cap showing the facial expression of Chipper Jones at the climax of one of his gold-digger dates and replace it with a superior script-A or tomahawk logo by the time this year’s caravan comes to Birmingham?

Why hasn’t the person in the Braves marketing department who signed off on thet cap been fired over that debacle yet?

Why don’t you talk about Chipper throwing our 2012 Season into right field during that one-game playoff against the Cardinals, while having his mind on some Playboy Bunny, as being “NOT NICE?”

are yall serious about camping out the night before? i went to snellville last year, but it was INSANE. i left after a half hour because there was no chance of getting through the line. the line length is directly proportional to who is there. if jay, bmac and FF are there, the line will be a lot longer than the line to meet jordan shafer, reed johnson and fredi. i like getting autographs………..but not as much as i like sleeping in my warm bed with my cold wife. hahaha. thank goodness she will never read this. go bravos.
