Braves supporters call for MLB investigation as Seattle sports fans speak up against Metrainer bus strikes

It’s over for the Atlanta Braves and just not in a way likely to spark a joint celebration in the ATL.

Braves manager Brian Snitker was criticized for skimping on outfield defense.

The news comes after infielder Dansby Swanson missed three at-bats because of a cold last week. Swanson ended up straining his quad and missing the next game.

Braves voters may forget the Atlanta Braves are considering a baseball lawsuit against Major League Baseball, saying the league hasn’t provided necessary resources to make their new stadium — Turner Field — fit.

After the Braves won the National League East on Tuesday night with a win over the Los Angeles Dodgers, some Republican political candidates felt the team’s historical significance warranted that kind of attention.

Perhaps leading that charge was State Rep. Greg Woodard, who tweeted out his support of Atlanta’s baseball team.

While wndyu enjoy the #Braves National League East title, we should ask MLB about their dereliction of duty for supposedly showing neglect when it comes to making a beautiful stadium out of Atlov/Cherry tree debris + Dansby Swanson gets in 3 batting practice ABs & there’s the $FNLB season up 44%. — Greg Woodard (@GregWoodardGA) October 4, 2018

Braves outfielder Nick Markakis also chimed in.

The Atlanta Braves were determined to win their first-ever World Series. With the win over the Dodgers, the team stands to make history. It will be just the sixth team from the five Major Leagues to win it all. There have been four teams with an African-American owner (though the Braves are the lone team not to have an African-American manager or coach). The Braves were 21-38 when former owner Ted Turner bankrolled an expansion team in the 1968 season. Their new ballpark opened in 1997 and played its first major league game that season.
