LET'S FUCKING GO BOYS, I AM eating the biggest pile of shit for doubting this team after that first game loss

And literally, it is shitty. I've been following the game on my phone the entire time since I was out with my wife and kid earlier and I knew I'd probably only be stressed as fuck watching this on TV (basically thought if we didn't win today that there's no way we'd win tomorrow). I'm seeing them tie it up and take the lead after we finish dinner and I'm getting the bath ready for my daughter. My wife leaves to get groceries, I'm doing a poor job bathing my daughter since I'm stressed just constantly refreshing the MLB site and this page as Melcancon tries to close it out.

I see he gets that crucial second out and I go to try and record the rest of it on the TV for the post-game stuff, I hear my daughter crying and see she's taken a huge hard shit and thrown it onto the floor next to the tub. She's done this once before and I figured it might happen tonight because she's acted like she's been constipated all evening. So I just spent the last 20 minutes cleaning that up with some bleach and finally putting her to bed and had a huge excited sigh of relief to see the BRAVES FUCKING DID IT.

I'll be glad to eat a pile of shit if they can get a win in St. Louis.

Congrats on the win, hell of a game and awesome finish.

Take your pick of condiment, but I’m partial to the chili lime one.

It's funny that my typical go to for hot sauce since I moved back to Georgia (and have lost my acclimation to very spicy food) is Cholua. I want that Valentina Black Label but it isn't quite as easy to find as it once was in Austin unless I go to specifically a mexican farmer's market store off Buford Hwy.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that neither Markakis nor Freeman will be in the lineup tonight.

There's a zero percent chance Freeman sits. There's a slightly higher, but not very high, chance Markakis sits.

Starting Duvall today would be the easiest choice ever and I'm not sure Snitker's smart enough to do it. Mark Bowman outlined it in a tweet yesterday. Since coming off the DL Markakis has a .490 OPS against right handed pitchers. Joyce has a .922 OPS against righties since he began platooning. The smart move is benching Markakis, but Snit won't do it.

If he starts Duvall over Joyce he has to hit him 5th. Hitting Markakis 5th again is managerial malpractice.

Dansby is supposed to be moved up I heard, but yes I'd be dumb to not start Duvall over Nick. Got yet another bad typical Atlanta sports feeling over this.

If Freddie and Nick go for a combined 0/8 I'll personally kick Snit in the dick.

Atlanta United needs to relocate before they get the hex that's on the Falcons, Braves, and Hawks

Fucking hell dude, your obsession with me is flat-out unhealthy.  I had zero posts in this thread all year, yet I come here and find you talking about me.  Get over me, you sick freak.

they won as many titles in two years as the other slap dick teams have won combined in 150 combined seasons. Don't lump them in with the other turds in the city.

looking at the free agent class for outfield upgrades for markakis and the options this winter are....bleak.

Roll with Pache or Waters in the outfield. Go get Gerrit Cole.

Sentence one may happen. With corporate ownership that doesn't give a fuck about the team the second sentence has zero chance of ever happening.

The Braves ability to win a World Series is going to rely on the continued development of Mike Soroka and hoping that Ian Anderson, Kyle Wright and Kyle Muller develop into major league starters. Ownership has shown they're only willing to take on short-term money and you aren't going to sign a front line starting pitcher to a one year deal.

I think there's enough data out there to suggest Folty and Fried are going to be maddeningly inconsistent pitchers at the big league level capable of brilliance and capable of melting down. I don't know that you can expect either guy to be a pitcher to carry a team when it matters.

Snitker is so in over his head at this level. He has no idea how to manage a roster or a pitching staff. Pitching your best pitcher once in a division series is a stroke of genius. He ran Freddie and Donaldson into the ground playing them practically every day. 

And Freddie...for a guy who was the face of the franchise through dark days and saw us come out the other side I will always have an appreciation for that, but this series puts a serious black mark on his legacy until he can get another shot to fix it. He was absolutely brutal in every phase in this series.

Says the cunt that mentioned me no less than ten times without provocation over the last month or so.  Self-awareness must be something that disappears in old age.

Freeman, Donaldson, Markakis and McCann all .200 or below for the series. Some vet leadership...

Markakis and McCann are cooked. Playing Freeman 158 games and Donaldson 155 during the regular season was really dumb.

Nonetheless, very solid season. Surprised many "experts", got some playoff experience for the young players, and didn't waste any of the minor league assets.

From Bleacher Report ...

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman underwent arthroscopic surgery on Wednesday to remove "three fragmented loose bodies" and "multiple bone spur formations" in his right elbow, the team announced.

Fuck me! It doesn't get much more painful than that (excepting ruptured achilles, ACL, etc.). Man's a stud.

First base: Freddie Freeman, Braves

This is Freeman's second straight Defensive Player of the Year Award at first base. He's a rock there for the Braves, playing 158 games at the position in 2019 and 319 over the last two seasons. That's a total of 2,780 2/3 innings at first base.

Makes it even more odd how awful he was against StL.
