It’s no secret that the Braves have been raking in the second half. Let’s look at exactly how, and maybe why.

Going out with a thud: The Braves' historically awful farewell to Turner Field

For the past couple of seasons, the Atlanta Braves have been an especially bad baseball team. This is mostly by design. When the new front office came into power, it decided that instead of trying to convince most of the soon-to-be-very pricey veteran talent to stay in town, the powers that be would instead trade them for prospects in order to transform what was once a barren minor...
