Impressive. I remember that group. Would not have got Ddiier or Gonzalez. I was a young boy. I rmemeber they used to call Felix Millan "the kitten" because I guess Millan sounds like meow. I always thought that was cool when I was a kid.
Pat Jarvis used to fall down a lot when he pitched. I believe Dusty Baker played with that group in the next couple of years too.
Rico Carty had a pretty long hitting streak one year. May have set National League record to be broken by Pete Rose several years later.

Did you take a video of the streaker on your phone? Please upload if you did.
For some reason my pops hated Bruce Benedict lol
Started following the Bravos in 1969.
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
Phil Neikro was a knuckleballer. Gaylord Perry threw a pretty mean spitter.
Greg Olson, Sid Bream, Mark Lemke, Rafael Belliard, Jeff Blauser, Terry Pendleton, Ron Gant, Otis Nixon, David Justice, Lonnie Smith.
Glavine, Smoltz, Avery, Leibrandt.
Mercker in some capacity maybe (but too early to be #5), Juan Berenguer (only cause I looked him up yesterday), they also traded for Alejandro Pena, who was badass. I am sure some of the guys who later had bigger roles were in the pen. I'm blanking on the fifth starter, gonna kick myself. Talking about 1991. Missing some guys too that will make me feel silly. Francisco Cabrera?
Went as a child growing up from Columbia with my family. As an adult I sat through some really rough games in the lean 80's. Actually lived in Atlanta from 87-93. I remember Blauser, Lemke and Ronnie Gant. and later came Terry Pendleton who I loved at 3rd.
Brad Kominsk(sp) was supposed to be a future slugger
Steve Avery! Good call. Who said they didn't like garber? Even if he wasn't good, the side arm was great to watch. Hope that was gene.
Was it Pasquel Perez who got stuck on I285 and missed his start?
Not a Braves fan then and certainly not one now..........will admit though, they have a pretty stacked team this year. Go Reds!
Reds used to tear Atlanta up in the 80s. Dang Eric Davis and Larkin. Davis could hit some bombs.

I don't think I saw a Paul Assenmacher mention in this thread.
Money shot. Was he in the smoltz trade?
yeah, cell phones were all over in 1974. Uhhhh..., did Christopher Columbus tweet his discovery of America? C'mon man.
I liked Andres "The Big Cat" Galleraga, in his couple of years he played there. The Crime Dog, Fred McGriff.
Do ya'll remember how dang fast Chipper was before he blew his knee the first time? He could have been a 40-40 guy. I guess they weren't quite as good at replacing ACL's back then, because he sure lost a step after that. He was still fast, but not like he was. Guys don't lose a step anymore when they get it replaced.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Growing up in Greenwood, we had a single A farm team for the Braves. I remember they called Dusty Baker the "Home Run Maker". damn, that was a long time ago.
Goodness. goodness. Guess you missed the sarcastic tone.... Or either I did.
Simply uttering his name is blasphemous...
"You’re either a block-gobbler, a farmer, or you’re a damn hunter and playmaker."
