About Braves Journal

The About Braves Journal page was written by Mac, founder of BravesJournal.us, many years ago. Mac is no longer with us and some info below is outdated, but we decided to keep this page in its original condition to honor him. Thanks for everything you did, Mac.

This site has no affiliation with the Atlanta Braves, the National League, Major League Baseball, or the state of Georgia. Blog posts are my work, except when they are not. Republication with attribution is acceptable. Republication without attribution is not and my relatives are all lawyers.

This is a weblog of opinion. I make no particular effort to be neutral, unless I feel like it. I do generally attempt to be fair to individual Braves players, unless I don’t like them.

All statements of fact on this site are true, unless I am lying. Or joking. Or mistaken.

The commenting policy is simple. Be nice to me, and be nice to your fellow posters. Don’t use extreme profanity. Don’t make comments slandering entire groups of people. Use common sense. Basically, treat this forum like a civilized conversation. Don’t write anything you wouldn’t want your mother to hear you say, or that would likely provoke a fight in person. Don’t discuss politics or religion, two things that get people riled up and which nobody’s going to come to an agreement on.

There is one judge, me. Everyone gets one warning. On the second offense, you’re banned. You can appeal to me via email but insulting the judge is a very bad way to get him to agree with you.

  1. My name is Chad McGinnis. I just wanted to introduce myself to you. I am a new Atlanta Braves blogger at http://www.TomahawkTalk.com. I am a die-hard and life-long Braves fan. This is something that fulfills a hobby void for me, I guess.

    I have enjoyed your site for a while. I appreciate your content and loyalty to the Braves. I wanted to let you know that I have added you to my blogroll. Would it be possible for you to add my website to yours?

    Thanks for your time.


  2. Good opine, While not entirely in agreement on your assessment of Chris Johnson, I think he did become a bit more enamored by the long ball this season and his average and on base percentage suffered because of it. Now, if opposing pitchers will continue to throw balls off the plate and Melvin does not swing at them, he might just suffice as a lead off hitter. Lord knows he still cannot see the ball well enough to actually hit it. Not so sure he sees it well enough to catch it either but that is a rant for another day.

    Simba appears to be trying to become a good number two hole hitter, taking the ball to right field and not trying to hit homeruns with every swing. It is going to be an interesting August. It should tell us everything we need to know about this team.

  3. For those of you remember Mac, today is the third anniversary of his passing. For those of you that don’t , without him there would be no Braves Journal. Mac, we miss you be love you! Your family, Bill, Becky, Clay and Penny
