Makes you wonder how much revenue they leave on the table from people who don't want to bother with the slowness. Never mind how many people just never come back to the stadium.

This stuff doesn't matter as much as the quality of the team... But it matters because it indirectly affects the quality of the team. Not to mention all of our sanity.

Now I haven't been to any other MLB ballparks, but I do attend other sporting events and the Cell is the only place that half-asses it during a professional game (and I've been to some dumps).
Your statement "It's always someone else's fault," is the tag line to this organization. Instead of fixing problems, they point fingers. Meanwhile problems remain unsolved and they piss off the most loyal fan. Then they wonder if why they have attendance problems. Other businesses that are run this way usually go bankrupt.

Well, I am pretty sure that Dave Wilder is in jail right now, so yeah, I'd say he's being held accountable. Oh, and Greg Walker has to live in Atlanta, so he might even have it worse.

Atlanta is a fun town.

Yeah- hitting coach for a 1st place team (#3 in NL in runs scored & OPS) and one of the better run franchises in MLB- it was obviously Walkers fault.

Oddly enough, the Braves offense would look to familiar to Sox fans. Low OBP, low average, but high OPS thanks to a bunch of power-hitters knocking out HRs. Only difference is so far they're successful.

The Atlanta offense is very similar to the better Sox offenses during the Walker years.

Exactly, the Braves have the same offense the Sox did for years except their guys hit HR.

FWIW, the 2012 Sox were 4th in the AL in runs per game. You hit homers, it covers up a lot of problems.

Hate to get in the way of good Walker bashing- but the Braves are #4 in the NL in OBP- but you're right overall avg is low- 9th.

Whoops, my mistake. And they have the highest BB% in the NL.

The guy who broke the law and got busted for isn't an example of how the current Sox ownership holds people in management accountable for poor results.

Pro sports teams have it good with their media money/TV deals. Imagine if they funded things like minor league teams - ticket sales and marketing sales. They would be forced to improve operations.

Went to the Sunday game with 8 relatives and it was a great experience except for the heat. Grandkids loved it.
