In the annals of baseball history, nothing even comes close to the regular season winning success of the Atlanta Braves from 1991 to 2005. Former AP Writer and SABR member Dan Schlossberg details the unprecedented success of the Braves in his book, "When The Braves Ruled Baseball: Fourteen Flags Over Atlanta" starting with General Manager Bobby Cox's trade for John Smoltz, to David Justice, Terry Pendleton, Chipper Jones, Tom Glavine and the free agent signing of Greg Maddux. Schlossberg shares some of the insight he gleaned from interviews with former Braves executives, including the differential in budgets from owner Ted Turner from 1991-95 compared to those from 1996-2005 under conglomerate Time Warner. Though only one World Series win during that record run by the Braves, Schlossberg mentions the amount of above-average players such as Denny Neagle, Bruce Chen and Ryan Klesko, who were traded on an absolutely talented roster as the Braves marched on, each year, for the 14 straight seasons, to the playoffs and several World Series.
