Sutton will return to booth

I was almost certain Don Sutton's days with the Braves were numbered: his contract was the only one that hadn't been renewed and Chip Caray had recently been signed to join the broadcast team. A no brainer, right?

Wrong. Things have been squared away with Don's contract, so the Braves broadcast team will now consist of Chip and Skip Caray, Joe Simpson, Pete Van Wieren, and Sutton. Although the specifics haven't been worked out, a rotation will be developed for the radio broadcasts, as well as all TBS and Turner South televised games.

The Braves have also announced a new radio partner for the 2005 season. WGST 640 AM and 96 Rock will become part of the Braves Radio Network, as will all Clear Channels affiliates throughout the Southeast.
