With a National lLeague team winning, if it couldn’t be the Giants, I’m glad it was the Braves….especially the since Sun Trust now Truitt 2017+ Braves.

It’s too bad that Ernie Johnson’s son didn’t get to see the Braves win, as he passed away recently.

He was 33, so he was probably only 7 the last time the Braves won the World Series.

Been a fan since I was 8-9 years old. This is so sweet! I remember the '95 World Series and was at a playoff game in '96. I plan to be there next year, though nothing could surpass this feeling. Its as sweet as the turnaround in '91 was, though they didn't win the World Series then.

Yeah, I think back during the season and was so frustrated by them alternating wins/losses. When they finally hit .500 I was happy as hell. They won the NL East and I was just thinking “Just don’t embarrass yourselves in the playoffs now.” I was fine with them playing Milwaukee or San Fran and I wanted no part of LA honestly. They drew LA and the rest is good history. Great year for the Bravos.

I saw on the news this morning that the ball that Soler hit out in the third inning finally came down at about 4am:-)

That was one of the more massive home runs I've ever seen.

It's even more enjoyable as it was totally unexpected. By me at least. All through the 90s, with year after year of missing, it hurt so much. This one is like a freebie.

They darn well better resign Freddie.

Agree. How do you let your franchise player go? Make the deal!

Hah.. ok.. My point here goes to both of these. Remember the Braves wound up trading Dale Murphy to the Phillies in '90, if I recall. Famously, John Kruk called the Phillies at that time "24 Morons and a Mormon"

Murphy was one of the true good guys who just got screwed by circumstance. Traded to the Phillies right before Atlanta went on their run and then the Phillies didn't resign him after '92 and then THEY went on a run. Well, a year of a run.

As for the turnaround.. Remember that the Braves and Twins, unless i'm mistaken, both went worst to first in '91. First and.. Only(?) time that's happened. But that happened alot in the 90's.. Phillies in '93 did it, too.

They did screw Murphy over. He has a great attitude though and remains a Braves fan. Has a restaurant called "Murph's" right next to Truist park. Been there and met his business partner. Just a class act.

How did Murphy get screwed over?

He was a 34 year old ballplayer in steep decline ... Maybe trading him actually helped them get better.
