    ďBraves are up 3-1? Oh the dodgers are just beat up and spent from the season.Ē

    Ok. And the Braves? Soroka out, AcuŮa out in July, Darnaud out for 3 months with hand injury, ozuna out early.

    Our entire infield hit 28+ bombs regular season. Infielders besides Dansby Swanson had 30+.

    Pitching has been much improved over last season.

    Max Fried is on the mound, the Braves are red hot and tonight we go for the knock-out punch.
    If you scroll back through these scores of pages you will see that the Braves and The Pads were the teams I was most worried about in the league, not just the NL.

    When Acuna went down I didnt think they would still contend but man Anthopoulos did a hell of a job re constructing the team. Been fun as hell ( until this week) watching Joc play well.

    Tonight is going to be an uphill climb for the Dojers, We will see what happens. Glad Tio Albert will start, hope he channels 2005 Pujols. Sure as hell hope its not his last game

    One other player went down I forgot about: Huascar Ynoa, who was pitching phenomenally, punched a bench after one bad inning and broke his hand. Out 3 months. Weíve got him back now and he was going to start last night, but due to shoulder tightness sat out. When that news came down it was like ďoh no now what is itĒ. Canít complain with the outcome though!

    Also lost Soler to a positive COVID test. He was our lead off guy and after coming to ATL, turned his season around.

    Itís been so long since Braves went to the fall classic I sure hope we pull it off!

    Dodgers are there every year it seems like. Their massive payroll makes that achievable. 😒

    You neglected to mention the loss of Ozuna, that was another early season shot in the nutz as well. In the past a lot of teams would have shrugged this off and let him play.

    Braves system has been remarkably resilient. Hoping Fried pitches a good one so the Braves can go home and rest up while the Sox/Astros beat on each others pitching staffs.

    When Acuna went down I didnt think they would still contend but man Anthopoulos did a hell of a job re constructing the team. Been fun as hell ( until this week) watching Joc play well.
    Kudos to Alex for going out and finding the right pieces and plugging the gaps.

    No kidding. Between he and Soler its was a question of, "where were these guys with the other teams?"

    Well the Braves got their shit together and this remark from 7/7 aged poorly.
    They got a name for the winners in the world

    Existential question:

    If late arriving/early departing Do-dger fans see the team is already down in the 1st do they bother attending at all?

    If Iím a Braves fan Iím not at all worried. Atlanta sports has a long and storied tradition of closing out seriesí in the playoffs. Iím sure theyíll jump all over Max Scherzer on Saturday.

    We hammered the Dodgers game 4, they paid it back in game 5. There was some pent up anger in that performance.

    Max Fried got beat up and it didnít stop there.

    Braves are good at putting those games behind them and the series is coming down to the wire. We needed to win 1 game on the road in LA and accomplished that now itís time to put them away in game 6!

    Ian Anderson has his work cut out against a rested Max Scherzer tomorrow.

    and the red sox score 3 runs in their last 27 innings to send the cheating astros back to the world series. karma tried to help sink the astros by knocking out velander with a season ending injury but they still made it. maybe their star cheater altuve with come down with a case of the ooh fers and the cheaters get swept.

    Scherzer being out is painful. I liked their chances with a healthy Scherzer followed by a fully rested Buehler. Short rested Buehler followed by a pen game is less than ideal. Oh well, hopefully Buehler can give them 5 innings and the bats can stay hot.

    Going to be worth watching no matter the outcome. Braves drop tonight's games and they are fully fucked.

    Wow, Atlanta fans, what a class act. Already with the tomahawk chop chant in the first inning, and a bunch of yahoos standing in the first row right behind home plate. Beer must be cheap tonight.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    I love how the organ (probably not a real organ anymore ha!) gets the crowd into the Seven Nation Army chant instead of the chop chant.
