If the Braves ever left Atlanta


First off I would like to say that I don't even know if this is a possibility. I don't know if there is some sort of binding agreement that says the Braves are bound to Atlanta. Secondly, I'm not promoting this idea. I've got no beef with Atlanta or its fine citizens. I was born after the Milwaukee era & the only Braves I have known are the Atlanta Braves. What got me thinking along these lines was the post about the new alternate uni's. I got on a Braves history site to try to find a uniform which matched the new ones. I discovered that the new uni's closely resemble the ones worn by the Milwaukee team of the early 60's. There was a side note that said that soon after removing the Tomahawk logo from the jersey that the team moved from Milwaukee to Atlanta.

And so the seed was planted. What if this is a sign? What if the Braves left Atlanta? Would there be weeping & gnashing of teeth? Sackcloth & ashes? Would there be heartbreak like when the Dodgers left Brooklyn or meh, no big deal? I started thinking which cities would be good candidates. Charleston has a rich southern heritage similar to what Atlanta has to offer but do they have the fanbase to support a MLB team? Then I thought Nashville would be a good fit since they already support an NFL team. Maybe they would go full circle & return to Boston? Maybe Boston could be like New York, hosting both an AL & NL team. And so I pose these questions to the TC faithful if you so care to partake. What if the Braves moved from Atlanta? Would you care or not? What city do you think would be a good fit if they ever moved? Thanks for the input.
