I'm sure $670 million would be enough to properly fix whatever problems the current stadium has. The new location seems out of place. A huge baseball stadium with multiple corporate offices right next to it? I don't get it. I'm sure it'll look nice though.

There must be much more to this than is being said. There's no way you'd just leave Turner field out of the blue.

In any event this is very bad news for the downtown area.

Looks like they want to create the baseball version of Patriot Place. Bad area for it.

I hate to hear this for you folks in Arlanta. Ballparks belong in an urban location or urban setting. Not some suburb. I'm a Rangers fan and there's always discussions about moving the team to either downtown Dallas or downtown Fort Worth because the experience outside the stadium sucks.

Is there anyone here who works in the State Capitol area? I bet they have a plan all worked out for when there are home games at the Ted. I bet they don't sit at their desks until 9PM waiting for traffic to die down.

Everyone is acting like the end is neigh for Cobb. I for one welcome our new alien overlords.

And it will continue to screw northern patrons unless you live in Cobb.

The city owns the stadium, not the Braves. The Braves still have to fund all improvements to the Ted. Why sink $670 million into a house you only rent when you can go build your own house for that?
