The Braves are tying up traffic on I-75 two days before their home opener

15 Comments

Braves fans are scared that their team’s new ballpark, located at one of the busiest freeway interchanges in the country, will cause traffic problems out the wazoo. I don’t know what’s gonna happen when the Braves play their home opener on Friday evening, but they’re ALREADY screwing up traffic:

Atlanta has begun the season 1-6 and they’re messing up things for the hometown folks a full two days before they even play there.

Gonna be a long season, Braves fans. A long season indeed.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres will place outfielder Franchy Cordero on the 10-day disabled list and activate outfielder Hunter Renfroe from the DL on Monday.

Cordero, 23, has been slumping, batting .140 with four extra-base hits in 47 plate appearances dating back to May 11. The Padres noticed that the forearm issue has been affecting his swing in recent games. Manager Andy Green said, “It was something where he could swing a certain way to manage it. But swinging that way was not him.”

Renfroe, 26, has been out since mid-April due to inflammation in his right elbow. He hit .200/.281/.440 in 57 PA prior to landing on the disabled list. Renfroe played in 10 rehab games with Triple-A El Paso.
