Found December 28, 2012 on Online Sports Guys:
Granted the choice is a bit odd, but we, like many others are trying to figure our where the uproar that is being reported over the new Atlanta Braves batting practice caps are coming from. Major League Baseball announced yesterday their newest marketing gimmick. New BP caps. The reason: Simple, another product to sell to fans. Read more from ESPN.com RIGHT HERE Some of them are fairly interesting, some fairly drab and some just kind of ugly. And, well, to be honest, the Braves hat is kind of the latter. And before you ask, there are already allegations that the Braves chose this look. The "look" came from MLB Properties. Ask a pro sports team when they had final say on anything such as this.... For those unaware, the logo is the "Screaming Brave" logo the team used during the 70's and 80's. It went away when the "Politically Correct" sentiment went into full effect and people began being allegedly offended by anything they saw that...

Chipper Jones fails at B-Ball hoop assembly

Chipper Jones has been doing a good job keeping himself busy in the first few months of his retirement.  He's been out and about with his new Playboy model girlfriend, spending time promoting his "VIP" Super Bowl party and generally getting chubbier.  But it isn't all glitz and glamor for the future Hall of Famer.  It turns out that when it comes to putting things...

Chipper Jones' assembled basketball hoop has one fatal flaw (Photo)

Recently retired Atlanta Braves star Chipper Jones used a stepladder while putting together a driveway basketball hoop. Jones was able to put the hoop together properly, except for one small detail: What's wrong with this pic folks? Never said I was the sharpest tool in the shed. D--- ladder!!! Lol twitter.com/RealCJ10/statu…— Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) December 27, 2012...

Pastornicky moves down Braves' depth chart

Tyler Pastornicky began last season as the Braves' starting shortstop. Now his future in Atlanta appears clouded at best. The Braves no longer view Pastornicky, who turned 23 in December, as even an adequate backup at shortstop. He is likely to spend 2013 at Class AAA Gwinnett, shuttling between second base and the outfield. Pastornicky's diminished standing was shown...

Chipper Jones Tweets Funny Picture in His Garage

If I wasn't as big of an Atlanta Braves fan as I am I would say that I'm happy that Chipper Jones retired.  Guy has nothing but free time, and uses it very very well to entertain us.  First he started dating playboy model Lexi Ray, then he made us feel like crap with pictures of all the big deer he shoots, and last but not least he gives us a good laugh in his garage....

Could Constanza Win the Left Field Job?

Could Jose Constanza win the left field job this spring? Bloggers, pundits and sportswriters are continually speculating who will be the Braves left fielder, and/or bat lead-off, in 2013.  Many are predicting that GM Frank Wren will make a trade to bring in a warm body. The more time that goes by without any movement leads me to believe that the Braves may look within.  As Dorothy...

Photo: Braves set to wear atrocious batting practice hats next year

  Each of Major League Baseball's 30 teams are set to unveil new batting practice caps for 2013. Most of the lids will feature new designs, while others will stick to more traditional looks. The Atlanta Braves are one of those teams who will be scrapping tradition in favor of a mascot-inspired logo. Their new design features a screaming Indian instead of the cursive "A...

Chipper Jones tries to set up portable basketball hoop, gets it stuck in ladder (Picture)

Thanks to the world of Twitter, we are able to intrude into the lives of our favorite athletes without getting busted for trepassing. Earlier today, former Atlanta Braves slugger Chipper Jones tweeted out the below picture of his issues attempting to set-up a portable basketball hoop. Poor Chipper.... What's wrong with this pic folks? Never said I was the sharpest...

Atlanta Braves ramp up the racism with new caps

Was there really a point to this? Bringing back the screaming savage indian of years past? It’s bad enough that racism like this existed for so long, it was Atlanta’s logo from 1967 to 1989. The mohawked image first made an appearance in 1954 during the Braves’ Milwaukee days. From Big League Stew: The re-emergence of the questionable logo is surprising given that the Cleveland...

Braves to re-release 'Screaming Savage' logo?

The Atlanta Braves may be bringing back the 'Screaming Savage.' Atlanta plans to re-release the logo the one it used sporadically up until 1989 for team batting practice caps, according to uniform guru Paul Lukas of Uni Watch. The image of the mohawked Native American figure dates back to the franchise's days in Milwaukee, where it first showed up in 1954. It is believed...

Autograph session with Kimmie

Landmark Dodge hosted an autograph session with Craig Kimbrel today, and Catherine and I went with Patrick and Kolbi. The line was relatively short so we thought we could fly through, but Kimmeh took his time with everyone so we had a decent wait. Here are our pictures. I asked Kimmie to Kimbrel with me and he grinned, "IIII'm...not gonna do that." I didn't think...

Following the ‘Kris Medlen Approach’ may be best idea for Chapman
