Hello everyone and welcome BACK to our regular (most of the time) feature here at Tomahawk Take where you put your Atlanta Braves questions in the comments section and I do my best to answer them.

I do need to apologize for having to pause the Q&A’s for a bit the last few weeks. A combination of a shameful injury (I’m fine, no worries there) and some holiday travel that involved some pretty awful hotel wifi kept me far more off the grid that I am used to.

We have a good bit to talk about as a lot has happened since we chatted. Dansby Swanson is no longer a Brave, the Braves have made several smaller trades to fill out the lower ends of the roster, and the Braves extended Sean Murphy through at least the 2028 season.

It is Atlanta Braves Q&A time!

For quite a while now, one fixture of my Twitter account has been that I periodically do Q&A sessions where followers send me questions and I do my best to answer as many of them as possible. Those Q&As have been quite popular and when thinking about how to best build a community here at Tomahawk Take, one of my first ideas was to do weekly sessions where I invite readers to ask me questions and I answer them right in the comments. For now, my plan is to do them every Thursday at 6 PM EST, but I will let you know if that plan changes.

The way this works is simple: all you do is log in and post your questions in the comments and I will reply with my answers. I can type pretty fast, but if there is a lot of questions…just be patient with me and I will get to yours. You can ask me Braves related questions (majors or minors), questions about the site, or really anything as long as it isn’t super creepy/too personal (if you don’t know where that line is, its probably best to play it safe).

I will be answering a lot of questions as they come in to start, but at some point, I am going to need to do things like “eat”, “say hi to my wife”, and “sleep”, so there may be some pauses/delays. Once we get past the initial barrage of questions, I do plan on circling back to this post over the next day or so to answer questions that trickle in. After that, you are probably best served to drop by the Q&A next week.

So hit me, ask me anything!
