The Braves have had some success at Turner Field, but they're not looking to sign another 20-year lease on the place. The Braves plan to move to another stadium in nearby Cobb County in 2017, leaving Turner Field to an uncertain fate.

Here's a sampling of what readers had to say in our Facebook conversation on the story:
