The Players

I love watching Braves Baseball.
Pretty powerful statement there
considering there are162 games 
a year.  It is a love for the game
and something else.  I admire the 
players.  I love the ones I have
watched for years...and the ones 
that have moved on to other teams 
to better their chances at making
that 'mark' in baseball.

Below are current players I love to watch.
I wish them well in any endeavor and hope that they will remain with the Braves as long as they can.

Q Veras
R Furcal
R Brogna
J Rocker
K Ligtenberg
B Jordan
 

Watching these guys. Q and Furcal...great additions to 
the Braves.  These guys run at the 'speed of 
light'.  Stolen bases and manufactured runs are 
now something the Braves can accomplish compliments
of these guys.  We no longer have to rely on 'the long ball' 
to win games...althought a long ball is sweet....:)

Impressed with our Bullpen this year...I know...kinda of a 'iffy'
thing but these guys can do it.  Hope Smoltzie can recover
fully from TJ surgery
