for all you baseball fans Arthur Blank may buy the Atlanta Braves.I won't believe it till I see it but if true then a miracle has happened.AOL?TW has kept the braves payroll around 80 million a year which isn't bad,enough to keep the Braves competitive but no where near the teams like the Red Sox,Yankees and now the Mets who have there own TV network. I love baseball as much as football so this is good news if it happens.http://www.mdjonline.com/articles/2005/ ... 203858.txt
