Wtf happened to the braves? If we don't make it to the postseason I'm taking a shiit in my boxers and mailing it to johnny rockets.

With the Panthers disappointing season, I was really looking forward to watching the Braves in the postseason.

But now there's a possibility that may not happen. Please Braves, win tomorrow!!!!

Did nobody watch the game last night? Big comeback, coupled with the questionable SF win the night before, Atlanta is playing pretty well.

I almost never feel bad for pro athletes, but in his case I actually feel something close to sympathy.

Ouch.

There is only one solution: hit the ball!

Defense sucks, no getting around it. DLee is a gold glover. Heyward is solid in RF. Everyone else in the field has holes in their defensive game. We are going to have issues winning low scoring ball games.

We need to hit and in bunches. Heyward, Lee, McCann, and Gonzalez are going to have to get it done. They are the ones in the heart of the line-up every night. All of them have shown they are capable to delivering. They are the ones that have to win these games.

That said, the team as a whole needs to see more pitches. One of the reasons we did so well in the regular season is because of how many walks our offense picked up. It seems like everyone is going out there hacking. At this point, I would much rather see a guy get called out looking than seeing one pitch and driving the second one into the dirt. We need to make the opposing starter throw more pitches, even if we don't hit them, at least we'll pick up a couple walks and get to the pen sooner.
