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.
Republican David Perdue and Democrat Michelle Nunn are vying for Georgia’s open U.S. Senate seat.
Democrat Michelle Nunn is calling for five debates against GOP nominee David Perdue to be held across the state in the runup to the general election.
Perdue went through a gauntlet of debates and forums almost every week in the months before the GOP’s May 20 primary, but he only had one face-to-face debate with his runoff challenger, Rep. Jack Kingston, ahead of last week’s vote.
Cynics would say this is Nunn’s attempt to shift the conversation away from the 144-page series of memos leaked from her Senate campaign. But we’ll leave that to the cynics.
Perdue spokesman Derrick Dickey said the Republican participated in a dozen debates while Nunn only joined one.
“For her to now talk about the importance of debates shows the complete disingenuousness of her campaign,” he said.
We are told that Perdue will likely participate in at least four debates or forums with Nunn, including the Atlanta Press Club debate days before the vote.
Here’s what Nunn said:
“Debates are going to be an important part of this race. I think five debates hosted by non-partisan organizations – spread across the state – will offer a good chance to compare the background and record my opponent and I offer in this race, as well as how we would represent Georgia in the Senate. I welcome the chance to engage in these dialogues in front of Georgia voters and hope my opponent will join me in this important process.”
