The Maple Street Press Atlanta Braves Annual 2011

Bravesmsp2011-med_mediumI promised some additional pages from The Maple Street Press Atlanta Braves Annual 2011, and here is the first bunch. I'll have some player page previews next week, but these two pages will give you a good feel of what the articles will look like.

First up is my interview with new Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez. Yes, David O'Brien may have gotten his interview during a bike ride, but I managed to catch Fredi while we were both hang gliding -- suck on that DOB! Degree of difficulty goes to me. I talked to Fredi for a solid 12 minutes and got to ask him most of the questions I wanted to ask him. The interview is a full six pages long in the Annual with some great stuff in there.

The second page is one that good 'ol RoyHobbs (Danny Hong) put together, and it's a real page turner that recaps every last at-bat victory the Braves had this past season -- my favorite article in the Annual. It's a great way to relive the excitement of 2010.

Remember that you can pre-order the Annual now if you go here, and get $1 off if you use coupon code TALKINGCHOP. Annuals ship on February 17th, and are on newsstands March 1st.
