• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

As a long suffering Tigers fan, I'm very familiar with that playoff feel of leaving like 6 guys on base because you hit into terrible double plays when you had opportunity handed to you to change the entire game.

When you leave runners on base by turning a crucial at bat into a double play by hitting a ground ball that the infield can use to get 2 force outs

man, the Braves blew that series yesterday. bases loaded twice and no runs. Acuna on 3rd with 0 outs and no run. Acuna on 2nd with 0 outs and no run. Absolutely abysmal. I said after the 7th when they blew the 2nd inning in a row with bases loaded that it would take a miracle for them to win the game. This postseason feels so similar to the 2003 postseason when the Braves went into the NLDS with a high powered offense and they did absolutely nothing. Theres no way in fuck Folty out pitches flaherty for a 2nd time on wednesday.

The Braves situational hitting yesterday was awful. No excuse for Acuna not to score on, at least, one of those occasions.
been an issue all season.

Outside of that, the Braves pitchers faced the Goldy/Ozuna/Yadi part of the Cardinals lineup 5 separate times yesterday. On only one of those 5 occasions, did they keep the Cardinals from scoring a run going through that part of their lineup.

Lol, freeman, donaldson, markakis and mccann are hitting .167, .176, .158 and .200 respectively. And thats with 3 of them being 1 for 2 tonight. Gah damn

Good news for braves, i guess, is that their best players have been swanson who is under 25, albies, acuna and soroka who are all 22 and younger.

What did you expect from McCann? Hasn't he been a pretty mediocre hitter for a decade?
Half decade, sure. 09-14 he was pretty dang good though. And i didnt expect anything from him. Freeman is the big one. Hes done nothing this series and had multiple chances to put game 4 out of reach and failed.

to be fair...atleast the Braves have given me a reasonable amount of success as a fan. In the playoffs most of the time(even if they shrink when they're there) and have won one title. Redskins lose more games than they win. NC State hasn't won a conference title in a major sport(including baseball) since the early 90's. Charlotte Hornets are not and will never be relevant. The only other team I root for that has given me as much success as a fan is the Carolina Hurricanes with their Cup in 2006 and multiple ECF/Stanley Cup appearances. And they just came off of a decade of irrelevance themselves. Its hard out here man
