LEAD baseball players weigh in on the Braves move

I don’t think I will be able to get to as many games because of transportation to and from the games. It was easier up here because it only took me like four or five minutes to get there and only fifteen walking. And I think it will hurt the area around Turner Field because now we don't have anything here.

What are you doing this weekend? November 22 – 24

Thanksgiving is less than a week away. So you only have six days to complain about the holiday music on the radio and decorations in all the stores before you start sounding like you’re ninety and talking about walking uphill both ways to school in five feet of snow. Here are some festive (or not) things to do this weekend to ease you into the holiday season.

The Braves asked for an awful lot-and Cobb is evidently prepared to give it

You can dig into the twenty-page acronym-loaded MOU - or "Memo of Understanding" - between the Braves and Cobb County at your leisure (here's the pdf) but here’s the main takeaway: the Braves asked for lots of control and they’ve been promised it in a sweetheart of a deal that would run through the 2046 baseball season.

Commentary: Dear Braves fans, stop taking it out on Cobb

Listen you ITP people, there’s no reason to get personal. We Cobb residents didn’t ask for a baseball stadium any more than you Atlantans lobbied to kick the Braves out. Please direct your anger at Braves owner Liberty Media and your *own* elected officials. Hating on Cobb County is like an ex-wife blaming her husband’s new spouse, even though she’s the one who initiated the divorce.

Commentary: The core problem with Cobb

It can’t have been easy to be a Cobb resident this week. Since Monday’s surprise announcement of the Braves’ impending relocation to a vacant lot near Cumberland Mall, the prevailing attitude from the rest of the metro area has been: Effing *Cobb*. Those highway-worshipin’, Applebees-eatin’ suburbanites spit in the face of progress [time][1] and [again][2], then steal our baseball team.

Braves Relocation Update: The city’s timeline of what happened

In response to criticism that his administration was paying more attention to the Falcons than to the Braves, thus letting the latter slink away to Cobb County, Mayor Kasim Reed yesterday released a timeline that showed, among other things, that his office was . . . paying more attention to the Falcons than the Braves.

Mayor Reed to Braves: You’re my favorite team–I just can’t give you enough tax dollars

At today's press conference, Mayor Kasim Reed announced that the sixty-acre tract currently occupied by Turner Field and acres of asphalt will be developed into housing for middle-income residents.

The Atlanta Braves are moving to Cobb County and everyone is kind of stunned

For more than half a century, the Atlanta Braves have rented a prime chunk of property just south of Downtown. To accommodate this prized tenant, city and county officials have demolished entire blocks, proffered tax breaks, rerouted roads, and constructed not one but two massive stadiums. It’s not been enough. Today the Braves announced they will leave Atlanta proper – and move twelve miles up the freeway to Cobb County, hosting opening day 2017 in a brand new ballpark.

Will the Waffle House luck hold for a 13th Atlanta Braves win?

You can find some pretty strange lucky charms when it comes to sports—Michael Jordan’s old college shorts, the St. Louis Squirrel, Les Miles eating grass—but a lucky Waffle House? The Braves have gone 12-0 since a scaled-down version of the Atlanta-based breakfast icon opened at Turner Field.
