The Braves should be better when they move to the new stadium, though I’m not convinced they’ll be contenders. Not that it’ll matter, because, after a long, torturous slog though rush hour traffic, you’ll have the pleasure of navigating an eight-lane highway not suited for pedestrians. Vice has a depressing summary of the mess to come.
Liberty will probably be looking to sell by then, capitalizing on the short-term gains of their shiny new mixed-use development. Once again, the Braves, and their fans, will get the shaft, just as we did when Time Warner negotiated the pitiable TV contract that benefited the media conglomerate at the ballclub’s expense.
But hey, at least we can enjoy dogs eating food off Paul Byrd’s head.
