They're just young. Folty looked like a deer in headlights last night. Most of them looked rattled by nerves. Whether the Dodgers are the better team or not, they have post-season experience. And that makes a big difference.

Barring injuries or trades, Braves will likely be back here next year and and certainly back here the year after that. They're a young team and this is just the beginning of their run.

Is anyone here going to game 3?

I think you mean the division. Pennant = league champ.

20-year-old Ronald Acuna Jr. became the youngest player in baseball history to hit a grand slam in a postseason game. Prior to tonight, Mickey Mantle was the youngest to hit a grand slam, doing so at the age of 21 in the 1953 World Series. This will give the Braves a major spark.

Was a great game last night. Hopefully we'll give them a fight today, and force the Game 5.

Got to wonder how many of these young stars will end up playing for teams liked the Dodgers or Cubs in the next few years: Unless the ownership proves they're willing to invest in payroll, this window of success of close fairly quickly.

Well, that's that for the 2018 season. Hell of a ride that exceeded everyone's expectations. Here's to 2019!

And there you have it yet again: satisfaction--happiness even--with another failure to win a championship.

It's been 23 years since the last one. How much longer???

Unless/until this city's teams can shake that insidious culture of losing, they will NEVER again hoist a championship banner.

Huh?? You know this was a rebuilding year, right?

This was a HECK of a season. Won the division title, on a rebuilding year that weren't expected to do much. Then, did not get shut out in the playoffs against the powerhouse team of the NL w/ Manny Machado, and gave them a fight these last 2 games.

I don't know if you were watching the same season I was watching, but there was absolutely nothing "culture of losing" about it.

The Braves aren't the Hawks, or even the Falcons. The Hawks have never been a serious franchise, and that's sad. And the Falcons have only been semi-serious, and only really since the late 90's. Those franchises need cultural overhauls for sure, but the Braves are Atlanta's most successful pro sports franchise of all time (which is of course not saying much.)

Acuna is the next Andruw Jones. He's a superstar already. If we hang on to him and Albies for their careers, and we improve our pitching, we'll be right back in it every year. Plus Freddie Freeman is only 29. We have a really good team.

The Braves need a legitimate closer
