hey! finally another braves fan! i lived all my life in atlanta until about 12 years ago, and i still follow the braves...i think aside from hank aaron(and i was at the ballpark when he hit his record-breaker)i would have to say it would be Dale Murphy. He was such a great guy, and a great all around player. He could have played any position he wanted to, and was very nice to the fans. My son still has the hat he autographed for him! Nice to meet another fan!

Dale Murphy was pretty great for awhile. But if Hank Aaron is out of the equation, I'd have to go with John Smoltz. He's been way too good for way too long. It would've been Maddux, but he's since deparated.

the best atlanta braves player would be hank aaron. aside from him. i think the best would be greg maddux. during his first three years with the braves he won the straight cy cyoung awards and he anchored the best starting rotation in the late 90s. also during the 2004-2005 season he was the first pitcher since 1918 to have ERAs beloow 1.80. his only blemish is a not so good postseason record. a close second would be john smoltz, a very good postseason pitcher and an even bigger person. for position players, i would have to agree with you. the joneses are the best position players they have right now.
