Ender said he spent part of the day with Markakis expressing the importance of backing each other up along the RF wall because it's brick. If not played right the ball could bounce off the wall pretty hard.

It's gonna take some getting used to calling it the Coors Light Chop House after all those years as the Budweiser Chop House. Anyone know why the sponsorship change was made?

Usually this happens when a contract expires and another sponsor offers more money. :ninja:

Well naturally, guess I didn't realize that Budweiser's contract was up. Maybe that's the question I'm asking, had we stayed at The Ted would they have changed the signs and everything?

I believe officially it was just the Chop House or Braves Chop House at Turner. Budweiser just had a big ad on the front of the building.

I distinctly remember going to games and hearing it called the Budweiser Chop House. That's the way it was advertised. I mean it doesn't really mean anything. Just something that caught my attention.

BTW, have you checked out these pictures? This would be such an awesome place to watch the game. Love the field level access.

If you want an enhanced look into SunTrust you can check out Braves Live at 5:30 tonight. They're doing a 2 hour show to focus on the new ballpark prior to the game.

Cabrera will start the season on the DL. No damage of any kind. He just needs to rest it and then the doctors think he'll be good to go.

Jim Bowden says a "club source" told him the Braves are still in contact with Pagan. Probably waiting to see how far his price drops.

Braves sent Chapman to AAA. That means they've got something in the works or it's Hernandez and Roe to fill out the bullpen.

Wait? Everything I saw said Chapman was out of options.

Thats correct. He's actually been outrighted for now. Have to clear waivers before he can make it to AAA

Mark Bowman debunked this. He said everyone hes talked to told him theres been no recent contact.

I don't think that will happen because I thought Chapman pitched well. Someone will pick him up.

Snitker told the media they're leaning toward 7 in the bullpen. He must know something we don't.

We have to be in the process of bringing in someone.

The glove rental at SunTrust is completely free. You put a credit card down in case you don't return it but otherwise just turn it in and it's no charge.
