WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!?!?!?! Traded Craig Kimbrel!?! HOLY SHIT HAVING SEX WITH ANOTHER PILE OF HOLY SHIT! The stupidest of all possible stupid moves they could've made. :frustration:

You know, they're trying to build that new stadium north of Atlanta in Cobb County, maybe this is their plan for a cheap demolition of the old Ted Turner Field. Cuz if it were up to me, every Braves fan in the state (even the ones like me who refuse to watch them anymore but still love the old teams and old memories) would march our fucking asses down there to Atlanta and burn that motherfucker down to cinders and ash. God dammit. :ohlord:

2 minor league baseball teams to test game with 5-pitch rule
http://mynews13.com/content/news/cfnews13/news/article.html/content/news/articles/ap/2015/04/17/2_minor_league_baseball_teams_to_test_game_with_5_pitch_rule.html

This sounds like what we did in softball to speed up games, everyone started off with 1 ball & 1 strike.  They are adding that if you foul off a ball with 2 strikes your out.

I don't like this.  I think if you want to speed up the game, give the batter 10 seconds between pitches to be back in the box ready to hit.  It kills me to see the batter step out and make ten adjustments to various gloves/elbow pads/helmet/etc between each pitch.  Give the pitcher 10 seconds to deliver the pitch once the batter is in the box.  10 seconds may be to high of a number also.

I checked some stats just to see how Justin Upton & Craig Kimbrel are doing with the Padres
Upton is tied for second in the league in HR and is third in RBI
Kimbrel is tied for second in saves

I hope Atlanta got some really good prospects because it sure isn't working out for them right now  :raincloud:

I just severely severely disliked the Braves before. But when I heard they traded Kimbrel, I went into full on HATE mode. Fuck those assholes. I hope they never win another division title as long as Freddy Gonzalez is manager. Because if he'd do anything other than QUIT over the idea of letting Kimbrel leave, then he's as much at fault as anyone else. Fuck him, fuck the GM, fuck everyone in the front office, fuck all the coaches, fuck all the players, fuck every last one of them. Except 1st baseman Freddie Freeman, he's cool. And because I think he's cool, they'll probably get of him pretty soon too just to spite me. So a preemptive "fuck him" for when he inevitably leaves.

And fuck the Atlanta Hawks while I'm at it. They're in the playoffs right now I think... first time in god damn forever. But who cares. Basketball is fucking retarded and gay. Don't care if they win it all this year (which they won't). Fuck them in the ear hole.

Fuck the Falcons too. Let's just save time and say fuck every single professional sports team from Atlanta. I'd say fuck our hockey team, but they sucked so bad consistently that the whole city joined me in saying "fuck you" by never going to the games and the franchise had to fold. The only year they remotely did worth a shit was only because they spent more money than it was worth to hire some Russian fucker called Ilya Kovalchuk or some shit I can't pronounce. Fuck russia too.

Braves closer done for the year.

This guy was doing pretty good for Atlanta - he had a better ERA; more saves; more strikeouts; and less walks than Kimbrel has for SD.

The Braves have lost 12 in a row.  Someone should tell them that being the worst team in the league, does not get you the first pick in the draft  :dohdohdoh:

Everything in Atlanta sucks. The people. The buildings. The water quality. The traffic. The sports teams. Everything. If you can live anywhere else, fucking do it.

I just looked at the MLB stats and the Braves have a total of 5 Home Runs for the season  :WTF:

Looking at their roster, I could only recognize 2 or 3 players. 

Not looking good for them this year, they need a new stadium to fix all their problems  :lolsign:

WOW

The Braves really suck this year.  They have the worst record in baseball 7-24, at this pace they will go 37-125  :bomb:

The Braves only have 7 Home Runs as a team, which is last in the league.  The next higher team has 24 Home Runs and the league average is 34.

I knew that they were not going to be a playoff team, but I did not expect them to suck this bad.

I love it. They're spending shitloads of money building this new stadium to the northwest of Atlanta, not even IN Atlanta, it's basically in Marietta or Smyrna, and they're also over-developing the living shit out of the immediate surrounding area, and a huuuuuge chunk of the money for it is coming from the taxpayers and locals. And with the grand opening right around the bend, NO ONE is gonna wanna pay the prices they're gonna be asking to go see these losers lose their asses every game. It's gonna be a colossal failure. I hope they fail so hard that they make the Marlins look successful by comparison. I hope it's total fucking chaos. I hope there's rioting and looting and burning and scores of murders.
