Eric Cole, Staff Writer

I have been covering the Atlanta Braves since 2015 with a big emphasis on the minor leagues. Before my time here at Fansided, I was Deputy Site Manager and Minor League Editor at Battery Power. Mike Soroka was the 2019 NLROY, Alec Bohm never touched home plate, and Jose Alvarado should have to rebuild the mound himself.

I grew up in Illinois listening to baseball when the leagues only had 8 teams. My dad and mom died Cub fans always believing that next year would be it. I was a Cub fan until I realized I didn't believe Cub ownership wanted to win. I loved the way the Milwaukee Braves played when Red Schoendienst was at 2nd, Joe Adcock at 1st, Eddie Mathews at 3rd and and Hank Aaron in the outfield but I didn't say that out loud. I joined the Air Force in 1968 and spent 28 years there, mostly overseas without baseball. I returned in 1991 I started following the Atlanta Braves on TBS; I've been with them ever since. My oldest son is a Rangers fan while my youngest is a Braves guy like me. I'm an old school guy I guess, I see no need for a designated pinch hitter and would prefer the All Star game to be about the All Star Game. I do think replay is needed on line calls and at the bases since the technology makes such things a snap; not balls and strikes. I also think Bug $elig is a joke, blackouts are a form of censorship and we have too many teams. More on those another day. Go Braves!

I have written for the House the Hank Built since 2019. I own talkintomahawk.com and have a daily podcast about the Atlanta Braves to make your commute more interesting. The only thing I love more than watching old videos of Greg Maddux pitching is making other people watch old videos of Greg Maddux pitching. Twitter handle is @talkintomahawk

We aren't called FanSided for nothing. Our network of sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites are powered by fans that want to cover their passions! Whether you are just looking to get your start in online media or you want to contribute to your favorite site as a hobby, FanSided wants to hear from you.

Whatever your goal, FanSided can help your voice be heard. If you are interested in writing for any of our sites, please be sure to check out our openings page and submit a proposal.


The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
