Re: Same old Braves
Back in '91 when the Terry Pendleton, Sid Bream, David Justice, Avery/Glavine/Smoltz Braves broke through, I thought it was a nice story and was happy for them. They had been the sad sack of the the league for eons and it was nice to see a new team in the palyoffs.
Ever since then, I've rued the day I had a positive thought for them. I got really, really, really sick of that team really, really, really fast.
I admire their front office and Bobby Cox, but I got sick to death of the Reds regularly getting their brains beat out by them. And the fair-weather Atlanta fans and their stupid tomahawk chop.
Mike Stanton pitched for that '91 Braves team.
