If you hated the the 2014 Braves, you might love the 2014 World Series. The Braves drove us to distraction and brought “termination” to Frank Wren, the general manager who built them, by swinging big, missing big and spitting the bit in September.

12:56 p.m. — The jury that is in it’s 11th day of deliberations in the corruption trial of suspended DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis took it’s hour-long break of lunch, still unable to agree on verdicts for any of the 13 charges against him.
James Burnham of St. Marys said in a complaint filed this month that an email he received from the group in May — slamming Deal — amounted to political conduct that doesn’t comport with its tax status.
He said Better Georgia, designated as a nonprofit social welfare organization, should instead be an independent expenditure committee which would be subject to state and federal disclosure requirements.
Update: While the complaint lists Burnham as a physician, a Google search turns up no such figure — but does point to a prominent chiropractic practice.
Better Georgia spokesman Brandon Hanick said Burnham was a “Republican party loyalist,” noting his role as a host of local GOP events. He called the complaint was an election-year tactic “as evidenced by the fact that the press was tipped off about the complaint” before his organization received it.
