While other teams are flush with TV money, the Braves are stuck in an antiquated contract that undervalues the team's importance to its local network. That deal is apparently in place for a couple of decades, so it will be tough to get out of. The Dodgers can spend whatever they want while the Braves (who have a huge, but diffuse fanbase) can't. Once the Braves to get out of that contract, though, expect the team value to rise

2) As I mentioned, the fanbase is diffuse (Atlanta isn't a dense town), so it is difficult to get to games. However, the Braves have the most fans in the region, from Virgina to Alabama to Northern Florida through Arkansas (though that approaches Cardinals territory)

3) The Braves ran into the Yankees buzzsaw in the late 1990s and some other great teams (Twins, Jays, etc). Otherwise, there would have been more titles won.

4) The Braves won the NL East (over the much more hyped Nats and Phillies) with a very young roster that will get better with age. Guys like Medlen, Minor and Teheran are years away from their prime, not to mention our young batters (Freeman, Heyward, etc). The future is very bright.

5) This series ain't over

 

I hope not, will be cheering on the Braves tonight going to be a late one. Was at the game Friday my eardrums are just recovering.

On the subject of that J Crew code -- but out of the Alden context -- does anyone have any advice on how the AS double monks fit vis a vis Alden lasts?

Yes, I grew up in Atlanta but have lived in NYC / the Northeast for several years now... For baseball and football I am all Atlanta (Braves, Falcons), but for NBA/NHL, I have transitioned over to New York teams (Nets, Rangers).

There is always periodic debate about Alden's wait times and shortages, so I just wanted to point people over to the Epaulet X Carmina MTO thread... Apparently some Carmina orders have experienced some difficulty (this isn't a knock on Carmina or Epaulet - I shop at Epaulet and it is a great store with great owners, and Carmina seems to be a great product). One of the posts said that Epaulet has run 200 MTO units through Carmina. This to me illustrates the point that many Alden alternatives brought up in this thread from time to time are relatively small compared to Alden. How many thousands of units annually does Alden do for retailers just in cordovan? As demand grows for MTO cordovan, suede, and other makeups from these retailers, leather supply and wait times will increase. Your favorite Alden alternative now may end up experiencing delays in a year...

katch: What is the consensus on the NST Plaza JGilbert Tanker Boot in #8?

I have many Alden shells, shoes and boots, in all the shell colors, including the boot you speak of. Simply put, it is one of Alden's best. nod[1].gif

I saw a pair of ls saddle bluchers #4 - black shell. A guy is wearing them in the iPhone 5c for the colorful commercial. I was excited, pretty rare pair of shoes.
