Question by Kali: Can you tell me about baseball and the Atlanta Braves?
I’m sure this is going to sound dumb, but I know absolutely nothing about baseball. I’ve never really liked the sport, but my boyfriend is a HUGE Atlanta Braves fan. I’m trying to take an interest in it, but it is Greek to me. Any info, tips, or cool stats I should know would be really helpful. I’m taking him to an Atlanta home game (we’re from nor cal) so any other helpful hints would be awesome! Thanks everybody in advance!

The Braves are a young team – a lot of rookies and players that have only been in the majors for a few years. They have a great coach – unfortunately, in the offseason, they lost their pitching coach to the Orioles (he worked wonders). The Braves have one of the greatest players in baseball right now; Andruw Jones. Other solid players include Chipper Jones (who just went on the DL, or disabled list, I believe) Marcus Giles, and Edgar Renteria. They have some solid pitching with John Smoltz and Tim Hudson.
