Sun, 25 Sep 2016 20:33:45 EST Braves in 2016 Who's looking forward to the new season? Tue, 16 Feb 2016 14:38:07 EST Tommy Hanson Praying for the family Wed, 11 Nov 2015 00:37:23 EST 2015 Braves Only 4 games in, but so far, so good. How do you think they are doing? <BR> (I sure do miss being able to watch the games on TBS and I wish they still aired them! Being in the Northeast now, I rarely see a televised Braves game.) Sat, 11 Apr 2015 12:51:31 EST Braves New Year! I like the "NEW" Braves. I think they needed some new blood and some teammates that hold the others a little more accountable. Everyone is giving Washington the division but I think they are in for a surprise from the Bravos! Fri, 6 Mar 2015 13:30:48 EST Sorry to see Jason Heyward go He will be missed. Tue, 18 Nov 2014 08:30:21 EST Braves v. Mets Series at the Ted! Starts tonight at 7:10 p.m. Let's go, Braves! Mon, 30 Jun 2014 17:33:30 EST Where were you when Sid slid? I was at home... screaming my head off! Fri, 23 May 2014 10:00:31 EST Halrod32 Morning everyone, My spark streak is growing and i'm learning a lot about diet and nutrition. I work out regularly and my eating habits have been keeping me from making any significant gain or loses in this case. Fri, 28 Mar 2014 10:14:17 EST Braves in 2014 Looking forward toa great season! Mon, 17 Mar 2014 12:42:37 EST braves rock moved here from phoenix, followed upton lol. love the braves they rock, i am happy to be here and to find other people that love the braves Thu, 16 Jan 2014 15:21:03 EST Got my 5miles in with wife Did my laps with my wife on this beautifull sunny day in georgia. Tue, 14 Jan 2014 20:37:44 EST So much beautifull sunshine made it easy Today it was beautifull day for walking that plus helping my father and law remove a freezer that broke . So i got my excercise in and had a great day. Mon, 13 Jan 2014 22:58:12 EST Had a great day with my wife My wife and i had a great day togethor as we walked 5miles and had fun talking and pushing eachother on Sun, 12 Jan 2014 20:40:07 EST Today i got 5.4 miles in I am really doing good and proud of myself. I walked and didnt know we had a tornado alert going glad my wife came and got me. Sat, 11 Jan 2014 19:44:04 EST Does anyone post or read my post I really want people to read my post but it seems no one cares about braves fans staying healthy but me. I understand i am no social network but i am trying to help out but never get any of you to respond about anything wether its about braves ,weight loss , or thing going on in the world. I am not trying to post this stuff to be hog but to get yu to ask me questions on ways to help you lose weight. Anyhow i got 10miles in today even though its raining Fri, 10 Jan 2014 22:03:12 EST Braves wren says he isnt done yet Frank wren says he is not done making moves yet. He is still in the talking process with some teams nothing he will openly talk about as of today. Thu, 9 Jan 2014 16:29:59 EST Grads to glavine ,maddux,and cox Its been long known cox was going to hof but his players one he drafted tom glavine and one he had schuerholz sign as a free agent . Another brave torre is going as well. Four braves will be headed .torre will likely go in as yankee and larussa will go as a atheletic or cards manager.thomas will be going as well. I think those who do ballets did the right thing. Wed, 8 Jan 2014 20:31:54 EST My wife did 6.1 miles She did so good today and i am so happy. Tue, 7 Jan 2014 20:37:22 EST Braves get to report in febouary In febuary braves will report to disney world where their spring training complex is located. This time their will be some missing people . Brian mccann my favorite brave and tim hudson both clubhouse leaders both gone. I hope we get someone with leadership skills ready to takeover. Question is who will get the captains title. Uggla isnt exactly the man for the job nor would bj upton be the man. It leaves a very young team. We will find out very soon. Freeman is the man i see right for the jo... Sun, 5 Jan 2014 15:30:13 EST Lets hope the braves are getting in shape With spring traing rght around the corner lets hope the braves are getting the fat off their bodies. The braves will have a harder time this year in getting their title. Sat, 4 Jan 2014 23:06:34 EST I am working hard again Nowthatmy cramp is gone knock on wood i can getback to walking at full speed. Fri, 3 Jan 2014 21:17:18 EST It doesnt look like uggla is wanted Uggla who had a bad year isnt worth thirteen million dollors a year but if he puts up a year with 20 homers and .260batting average i will be happy. For that matter if b.j.upton hits .260 plus it could make wren look like a genius. Letting go of huddy and mccann was probable a smart thing to do by wren. Mccann is the only one who will likely visit cooperstown. Sorry huddy is a great pitcher but not really hall of fame worthy. He has yet to get the amount of victories to qualify. Mccann on the... Thu, 2 Jan 2014 11:52:31 EST Cramp in shin is still around buttt I did good walked with cramp in shin and reached the 10,000 steps. It felt good to walk so i guess their is a trueth in the saying no pain no gain Wed, 1 Jan 2014 19:11:31 EST Been injured from a cramp A cramp in the shin right above ankle has caused serious pain. Havent ben able to work out likei want andneed to do. Wed, 1 Jan 2014 13:21:21 EST Its a new week lets get started right Everyone lets make it a goal to workout hard. Sun, 29 Dec 2013 10:40:31 EST My. Braves newyears resolution Stay in shape ,beat the n.l east teams , the rest of the national league , and the rest of baseball teams with a world series crown on their head. Sat, 28 Dec 2013 10:55:28 EST hardwork is always a beneft if you just walk or do whatever it you decide that is right for you stick to it for doing nothing makes you want to do more of nothing. Fri, 27 Dec 2013 19:24:55 EST Lets start a healthy lifestyle Lets start showing the world we are the best team on the spark teams by working hard to change our lifestyle. Thu, 26 Dec 2013 12:09:11 EST Hello my fitness gang I hope everyone is having a great day workingout and making changes to their old lifestyls . If yu want change you must work them msucles and alte our eating lifestyle. Thu, 26 Dec 2013 12:06:43 EST I ope to see braves in disney world this year I want to see the braves play in disney world during spring training. Wed, 25 Dec 2013 11:24:16 EST Today i will do christmas and try and excercise Well i know it sounds like christmas should be celebrated on christmas but i reserve christmas to celebrate the dauy it truely is and thats the day that our Lord Jesus was born. I am one who is thankfull for everything. Tue, 24 Dec 2013 12:33:58 EST I hope the braves get a worldseries for christmas I reallywould be happy if braves get a worldseries victory and shut the naysayers up Mon, 23 Dec 2013 12:50:09 EST I got over 13,000 thousand steps for last week I have been happy weather has been nice and i might not be in first in my race with rudolp but i been chaseing hard. Mon, 23 Dec 2013 12:01:36 EST Had a great day working out and being with wife Its been a great day to walk with wife close to 80 plus degrees. No kidding it made working out with wife fun. Its suppose to rain tomorrow but i really enjoyed my day Sat, 21 Dec 2013 23:21:29 EST brves gm says that kimbrel is not being shopped on m.l.b. braves team report today the braves g.m. was asked if they are shopping their closer and frank wren the g.m. says do i look stupid. no team could begin to even afford the cost their closer is valued . at this point we have the #1 ranked closer in baseball. we will not give him away. Fri, 20 Dec 2013 15:07:30 EST I would like to say the hof finally got it right Hof finally got the votes right by voteing bobby cox in and i sure hope maddux and glavine join him. The braves should be the only ones allowed in this year. I am sorry but many of the others that are worthy just didnt do as much as those glavine and maddux. Managerial wise three of the best in the game torre (a former brave),bobby cox,and joe torre all deserved to be in cooperstown. Fri, 20 Dec 2013 07:43:36 EST My wife inspires me My wife makes me a better person with all the ways we grow together. Thu, 19 Dec 2013 12:01:10 EST Pleasure and getting fit with wife makes life good Its great walking or working out with your wife seems dreadfull at first but when your wife whose also a spark member makes life great. Those times when we both must choose wether to go see lights or just workout at home or local walking park we chose to go see the lights of south in grovetown , georgia and instead of doing the heyward we walked the whole thing . It helped us both get our spark tracker lights completely lit up. Meaning we got our minutes in . Then when we got home either my w... Wed, 18 Dec 2013 07:04:28 EST Today its 73 and a great day 73 in december and the temps are spring time like and sunshine is smileing on the world. Since my night is going to be a lights of the south tonight i will enjoy while its early.. No jacket required. Only walking clothes ,the sunshine , the nature,and warmth. Mothernature is so good. Tue, 17 Dec 2013 11:08:04 EST Well got 15,000steps in today it was a good day bu A spring like day in december in hephzibah ,georgia and a great day for walking with nature. Mon, 16 Dec 2013 20:48:33 EST Okay good day butttt It was good day sorry to say i didnt reach my goal of stepsnof 10,000 basically due to christmas shopping and getting the house restocked of groceries but the spark tracker didnt feel i walked 10,000. However the counter had me registered for twenty thousand steps. Not complaining who knows whose right. I think when yu dodge christmas shoppers and rude people at sams wholesale warehouse you did a great workout. Not feeling down just telling you a human is better and more acurate than pedomet... Sun, 15 Dec 2013 22:35:36 EST Some players are about to get wealthier Lets hope the braves overpay for kimbrel and freeman both are more valuable than most at their positions . Kimbrel is likely going to want atleast the kind of money the yanks former closer received. Trueth is he is on pace to take down his numbers. Sat, 14 Dec 2013 18:25:02 EST It was beautifull day in georgia The best part of beautifull days are yu get a chance to bond with nature walking and listen to all the wild animals and just enjoy beauty. Today was special while walking i saw my aunt out of her house she has been really going throw the grieving process hard as her hubby died in april while i was on my honeymoon. So i was glad to see she is out and about. It shows she isnt just giving up. I am proud of her. Fri, 13 Dec 2013 21:02:19 EST Well the braves made some moves at winter meetings Today the bullpen got stronger by the signing of jordan walden. They may also keep oflaheryy in the pen for next year. It looks like uggla and upton will continue their career in a braves uniform. Soaking up the braves budget.the braves are atleast making an effort to get the teams ship righted. Mccann i knew was going to leave was shocked by hudson departure. I wish them well. Thu, 12 Dec 2013 18:14:50 EST its always great when yu reach 26,000 steps i hit 26,000 but cant figure out how to register30,000 steps in a day yet. heck you must just walk 24hrs a day .it takes 4 hours nonstop on the spark to get over the 10,000 mark when you are 6ft tall and long legs. if you have to hit 8hrs of nonstop waking to get their then you reach 20,000 steps. so 12 steps nonstop in a 24 hour period. that is a lot of steps.i am 6ft with long wife is shorter and her minutes get done quicker and she is 5'3' with short legs she gets her minutes qui... Wed, 11 Dec 2013 15:38:26 EST Got good weather and even got to walk with my wife Its always great to get sunshine anda day to walk with sweet and beautifull wife. She got me o spark because she was doing spark . I decided to show support and now we both do spark.she heard it from curves. Tue, 10 Dec 2013 18:53:08 EST Its hard on sundays to workout Had a busy sunday working on the house getting closets cleaned out and trying to hang shelves. Ofcourse the spark tracker didnt log any of the excercise steps. I also did clothes and put more music on ipod. When all was done i didnt get anything on spark all day. Well now I will be splitting time between spark , excercise, working,and getting gifts. It seems their is never enough time in the day and night to get everything done and rested. I will i am sure of it always stay positive and happy... Mon, 9 Dec 2013 06:45:33 EST Mothernature gave me 1pretty day then it was rainy Well 1 sunnyday was better than none since i got to walk over 20,000steps. Otherwise i have been averageing around 11,000 steps. Its been a kicker to try and find windows of opportunity to really boost my walking count. Daytime has looked like its late afternoon. Sat, 7 Dec 2013 16:39:28 EST Its some great looking sunshine We got the sunshine i wanted now its time to walk away the pounds. Fri, 6 Dec 2013 11:29:24 EST please let it sunshine its been hot in autumn and i cant even get out in the weather for it has done nothing but rain i have a machine i can workout on.though i really like walking with the peace and harmony of the animals. Thu, 5 Dec 2013 20:36:46 EST Good day to you I hope we all are back at work and making the changes for a healthier lifestyle. It is a small thing not a big thing but once you get going it will come off in a healthy way with excercise , good diet ,and positive influence. Happy weightloss. Tue, 3 Dec 2013 12:43:45 EST Goodafternoon everyone I hope your weight loss is comming from a healthy source for example walking,eating correctly,and getting proper sleep for your body. Not to mention dressing in clothes that meets the weathers conditions. Have a good day. Mon, 2 Dec 2013 11:32:15 EST December is upon us no better time than eat health If we eat healthy this december we can dip into santas eggnogg ,cookies,and hot chocolate. Santa aint the only person allowed to enjoy those things. For example make cookies and hot chocolate with dark chocolate and a low calorie milk. Use a sugar thats an alternative to the normal fat sugar. Reduced fat no alcohol eggnog can be a very helpfull idea. These are just ideas but if we change the way we eat we can still enjoy the things we use to eat. Sun, 1 Dec 2013 08:44:27 EST I hope everyone had safe blackfriday With tazers being used to fight for tv on sale i am glad i didnt need one . Nor did i need anything bad enough to risk being hurt for some type materialistic item. Oh well did excercise a lot. Sat, 30 Nov 2013 21:03:12 EST Its post thanksgiving I hope everyone is very carefull today on black friday sales. I challenge you all to stay healthy and calm while buying things. Please be respectfull of those around you. Fri, 29 Nov 2013 08:10:53 EST Hope everyone had a day eating turkey Its good to eat turkey and be thankfull for all our family members and the good things spark is doingfor us. Thu, 28 Nov 2013 17:59:52 EST Being a host on the holidays makes yu thankfull Its really hard to get a house ready when your hosting thanksgiving day dinner whenn yu find out yu will be babysiting a very spoiled six year old while her mom works. If it was dry outside i could go for a walk. My wife is the person she loves but drives her crazy. These are the days that make you thankfull for having good wife to tell you love her and show her that she is good for al that is right. My wife makes me stronger and feel like donald trump in wealth cause i am rich in love. <... Wed, 27 Nov 2013 12:00:42 EST Nasty day but saved by the gazzelle It was rainy and nasty outside in the hephzibah , georgia area so i was forced to use a gazzelle crosstrainer plus that worked me a lot . The weather has been so nice and rain free i got away from working out on the gazzelle. I guess its time to get used to it we are in for some rainy days in the comming days. Its always nice to bond with nature. It also helps change up the places i walk so it doesnt make me bored. Tue, 26 Nov 2013 19:33:30 EST As a braves fan with epilepsy i am a battler I workout hard because it is less stress on the body and somehow helps us out. My doctor is happy i am walking daily. He says it should lower my epileptic seizures. Thats the will help me get control of my life. Mon, 25 Nov 2013 15:12:03 EST We are a team we are here to help Everyone i would like to say at my wedding last year my grooms cake was of brian mccanns jersej number. Now he plays for the yankees what a bummer. However my awesome wife who did that because i love the braves and have been a fan since i was old enough to pick up a baseball. Through the thick of it all i watched every season with the losses and those winning years. Regardless this makes me love the braves with more passion. Just like i will support all the spark people. I will give you tips ... Sun, 24 Nov 2013 17:55:18 EST Happy thanksgiving I hope everyone on the team has a great thanksgiving while spending time with loved ones . Just remember if we keep getting fit while eating healthy we will be doing great.

However the offseason works out i plan to be in shape for the new season . I average around seventeen thousand steps a day.

With the bullpen signings, our bp should be about the same dominant self it was last year. Our bench is worse without Infante and we haven't found our utility player yet. <BR> <BR> IF the Braves do get someone else, it will most likely be an OF capable of playing CF. <BR> <BR> Right now, I'm not sold on Chipper returning to active duty so to speak.

I live in the Houston area but was born and raised properly in the south, Alabama to be exact. Grew up a Braves fan and will die a Braves fan. =0) Not sure what I'm supposed to say so here goes. I'm a 37 yo single mom of two wonderful kids. They are my life. Therefore, I must get back in shape and start living healthier for myself and for them. My husband passed away in October and lately I've really been thinking about what will happen to my kids if something ... Wed, 1 Sep 2010 23:09:08 EST Woo hoo I've lost my first 50 Pounds!! Well actually I blew 50 out and got on the scale to -51 this morning!! I'm so thrilled!! <BR> <BR> Had to share Tue, 24 Aug 2010 10:41:49 EST New Team Leader!

Just curious how often do you go to the games? <BR> <BR> Do you attend home games or out of town games or both? Mon, 23 Aug 2010 11:44:01 EST Anyone here?? Just wondering if theres anyone on this board??? Sat, 14 Aug 2010 11:43:43 EST the braves will win the world series the atlanta braves are back plain and simple the have great starting pitching, very good middle and solid closer , solid defense and an explosive line up and the all would love to send one of the greatest managers in history out with a blaze of glory.....yesss go braves Thu, 8 Apr 2010 10:19:18 EST 2-0 w/ Hanson on the mound. Sweep? I like the fact that we have Hanson going w/ a chance for a sweep. I don't like, going forward, Derek Lowe as our #1 starter. He will need to prove himself there even though he won the 1st game. Hard to lose though when your team scores 16 runs! Thu, 8 Apr 2010 09:56:04 EST Jason Heyward The Atlanta Braves have a new Right Fielder. Jason Heyward was notified this morning by Bobby Cox that he has made the team and will be a starter this season in right field. Congratulations to him and to the Braves! <BR> <BR> <em>60</em> <em>300</em> <em>244</em> Fri, 26 Mar 2010 15:50:45 EST Spring Training Update The Braves are really coming together at Spring Training. Jason Heyward is living up to all the hype. Yesterday, he hit his first ST home run against the Detroit Tigers. Most estimates are that it sailed to around 425-450 feet. He is a giant boost to this team! <BR> <BR> Troy Glaus seems to be making a fine comeback from his surgery and will be a real asset to the team barring any health problems. He has been consistent with hitting and solid on defense at First. <BR> <BR> Our start... Tue, 9 Mar 2010 10:41:38 EST First Spring Training Game We lost the first one 4-2 to the Mets, but there were several positives. Hanson and Medlen both pitched very well. Acosta wasn't bad. Jason Heyward, well, what can I say? He really stood out and showed what all the hype is about. Melky Cabrera gave a solid performance as well. Overall, it looks like we will have a good year of Braves baseball. Tue, 2 Mar 2010 19:54:03 EST Manny Acosta Why is he always making it back? He has a "live" arm but no motion on his pitch, it is right down Peachtree. <BR> <BR> SEASON 4.34 ERA 37.1 IP 45 H 19 18 ER 19 BB 32 K 1.71 WHIP 1.03 I think the AVG v him was like .300! <BR> <BR> Is it just me? Tue, 23 Feb 2010 12:17:29 EST Happy Valentine's Day! Happy Valentine's Day! Sun, 14 Feb 2010 08:16:09 EST Hello all.. Hi everyone. Been a Braves fan since I was crawling around. My dad and his older sisters have been fans since Boston. I haven't liked all the roster moves done by the Braves in the off-season...especially gonna miss LaRoche..but of course, put my faith in the wisdom of Front Office in Atlanta. <BR> <BR> I've never really tried to diet or anything. My job, which can be very physical at times, has allowed me to eat anything I want, and not really gain weight. But now I wanna lose it. <BR> <... Tue, 19 Jan 2010 10:13:52 EST Happy New Year! Happy New Year! Fri, 1 Jan 2010 20:33:52 EST Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Fri, 25 Dec 2009 14:22:24 EST Braves trade best pitcher from last year! Braves get Cabrera, DunnComment Email Print Share news services <BR> <BR> The New York Yankees have acquired Javier Vazquez from the Atlanta Braves for Melky Cabrera and Mike Dunn, sources told ESPN The Magazine senior writer Buster Olney. <BR> <BR> In addition, the Braves are sending right-hander Boone Logan to the Yankees, sources said. <BR> <BR> Vazquez, with a 15-10 record, ranked second in the major leagues last season with 238 strikeouts and sixth in ERA at 2.87. This is his... Tue, 22 Dec 2009 10:41:42 EST Hi, Braves Fans! Just wanted to say hi! I have been a Braves Fan since '91. Seeing a game in person is just awesome! I don't follow each game, but still want to hear about their wins! Sun, 6 Sep 2009 08:55:42 EST Hello Everyone! I'm sorry that I'm just now getting around to this. My name is Shannon. Like everyone, I'm a busy busy person, but it's starting to come together and I'm enjoying life a little more. I have three amazing little boys (well, maybe not so little anymore) . I have a 12 year old trombone player in the school band, a 10 year old football player (I don't know what position yet) that is also my hero and my inspiration. This boy weighed in at 99 lbs when we first signed him up for football in May... Wed, 12 Aug 2009 17:02:52 EST Braves Win! Braves 6, Phillies 2 Sat, 9 May 2009 20:06:49 EST Smotlz Gone! What are your thoughts? Thu, 15 Jan 2009 17:40:21 EST Happy New Year! Happy New Year! Thu, 1 Jan 2009 21:30:51 EST Who is your favorite player? My current favorite player is franceour. Tue, 30 Sep 2008 19:36:25 EST Hi Hello, <BR> I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a long time Braves fan - win or lose. Too bad about this season but, they'll bounce back. Thu, 11 Sep 2008 11:53:04 EST Spark Mail Is there anyone out there who did not receive an Spark Mail today? I usually get several messages per day, but had none this morning. Sat, 6 Sep 2008 15:53:11 EST Georgia chop chick here! Hey everyone! I'm a lifelong Braves fan here in Georgia. I hate the way the Braves are playing these days (but Kelly Johnson's great at-bat tonight sure helped my mood), but I'm a fan no matter what. Look forward to meeting you. Sat, 23 Aug 2008 21:31:05 EST Skip Caray I was so sorry to hear of the loss of Skip Caray. He was the reason I became a Braves fan and have remained such a fan for the last 25 years. The games where he broadcast against his dad, Harry, and with his son, Skip, were memories I will never forget and always treasured. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and fans. My heart is with you, my friends. Wed, 13 Aug 2008 19:52:14 EST Much-Needed Bfreak Hopefully the All-Star break will give the Braves a chance to recoup and take today's momentum into the second half of the season. Sun, 13 Jul 2008 22:34:36 EST Smoltz surgery I am praying for his full and speedy recovery. Wed, 11 Jun 2008 10:08:35 EST Tragedy at Turner Field A fan died after a fall at the ballpark last night. See the story here<BR>html. Thu, 22 May 2008 10:16:54 EST braves game how about them braves last nite. Thu, 15 May 2008 15:11:56 EST Braves daily update! I live in Atlanta so I have access to everything! We watch every game. Here is a good website to get your scores & info. WSBTV.Com! That is our local ABC station. If anyone would rather have a different network let me know I will get you the link! <BR> <BR> Darlene Wed, 30 Apr 2008 19:38:20 EST Longtime Braves fan Greetings, everybody! <BR> I'm celebrating my 25th year as a Braves fan and couldn't be more excited to join the Braves/Sparkpeople team! Think we'll make it to the World Series this year? :) <BR> I'd love to hear from you, and your thoughts on the team and/or the games. Please keep in touch! It's hard to be a Braves fan all the way up in South Dakota. Sat, 26 Apr 2008 16:52:50 EST Happy Birthday, Chipper! I'm sitting here enjoying tonight's game, especially the turnaround I've seen in Chipper the past several games. Thu, 24 Apr 2008 19:54:21 EST Braves VS Dodgers Did anybody watch the game last night? GO CHIPPER JONES! I was so proud to see him hit 2 solo homeruns! He's also leading the league in batting average. I believe it was .446 or something really close to .5! AMAZING! Congrats Braves on a 6-1 victory last night! I'm so sad to see one of my longtime favorites-Andruw Jones-in a LA Dodgers uniform. It's not even normal. I've never seen him in anything but a Braves uniform. Sat, 19 Apr 2008 09:43:23 EST Who waited until the last minute to file taxes? Who waited until the last minute to file taxes? Tue, 15 Apr 2008 10:10:39 EST Longtime Braves Fan! Hey ya'll. My name is Jessica. I'm from middle TN. I've been a Braves fan since elementary school. Chipper Jones and Andrew Jones have always been my favorite baseball players! I use the number 10 for everything! GO BRAVES! Fri, 7 Mar 2008 22:06:42 EST Go Braves!!!! I've been on SparkPeople for just a few onths now but was so excited to find that they have a sports forum but there was not Braves option. I had to create one! I LOVE the BRAVES! There is no other team! (except the Dodgers since Andruw is over there now and whatever team Julio is on -- I just love Julio)!!! <em>212</em> Thu, 3 Jan 2008 14:35:52 EST
