Atlanta Braves Newsbeat

Sunday, November 13, 2016

Braves sign Jordan Walden to a minor league deal; possibly predicted by Henry David Thoreau.

“Whether he finally survived that combat, and spent the remainder of his days in some Hotel des Invalides, I do not know; but I thought that his industry would not be worth much thereafter.“

While I’m excited about Walden’s return to the Atlanta organization, the last place he had considerable success, I urge caution. Shoulder strains and injuries can be bad news, and they often portend the beginning of the end of a career. While none of us want that for Jordan, it can’t be ruled out as a possibility, unfortunately. His velocity will be something to watch in training camp. If he’s pumping gas again, the rest of the rebound might follow. If he’s sitting in the high 80’s, he might not see Buford.

The Atlanta Braves Borrowed Their Parking Scam From Dan Snyder

Last week, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the Braves had quietly asked for and received new traffic ordinances from Cobb County lawmakers. The Accessory Special Event Parking rule, which is among those edicts, bans all privately owned parking lots near the team’s new stadium from operating on game days when it opens next season.

There will be no public transportation to the stadium, so people will have to drive, and park, and the rule effectively stipulates that only the team can make money on parking. The AJC story held that the there was “no public discussion of the parking ordinance beyond the title being read into the record.”

The Braves issued a statement saying that they’d asked for the statutory parking monopoly for “the safety of the fans.”
