    Good lord. I’ve never seen a fanbase so quick to fap over a single baseball game result in June. I guess this is what happens when pro sports teams from the South always seem to fail and shit the bed in the biggest spots.

    I didn’t bring that fight. I just responded to it.

    He who laughs last...

    But congrats for lighting up a pen that’s missing 5 of its top 6 arms.

    I’m a Braves fan and watching the games they have
    A great shot at the playoffs but no chance in hell to win the WS.
    Winning the division 12 games over 500 doesn’t exactly excite me.

    The Dodgers look unbeatable and the Braves make them look like the greatest team of all time when they play.

    This is what I’m talking about.
    They don’t play the Cubs, Cards or Brewers that great either

    The book on Fried has been figured out by at least a couple teams thus far. He will have to make some adjustments. We survived another bad outing by him last night.

    He’s fine. He’s over paid. It’s baseball. Oh wait...I’m hanging with fans who only know what’s it like to shop in baseball’s equivalent of the bargain bin at WalMart

    It’s possible but even when the Braves were loaded
    they go cold come Aug-Sept.
    Maybe this team will keep up the pace

    Yep. I’ve been saying all season the NL East is 5 flawed teams. The team that comes out of that will essentially be best at mitigating those flaws. The division winner is one and done in the playoffs.

    But as history has taught us, one team will extend resources to addressing those flaws in the off season while the other will hope and pray that answer to their flaws will come cheaply from their farm. One approach gets you two World Series berths and one World Championship and the other leaves you eternally waiting for next year.

    Have been worried about him for his last starts. I noticed a few that have never faced him before blasting... his fastball hasn't been as precise. And, location of his curve ball suspect. All in a young man's head. Some veteran advisers would help.

    And I remember hearing that when the “young talent” had different names. It’s the same old blueprint and it has worked out for you once...only because you had the good fortune of seeing a pro sports team from snake bitten Cleveland.

    There’s a lot to be said for beating the teams you should. It gets you to the playoffs. Bless your heart, they’ll never win anything big but we’re football fans. They get you to August and then the Braves do their thing after that.

    You have a point. However, Dallas Keuchel and, the very real possibility of Madison Bumgarner joining the fray, could change things significantly.

    No they can’t. Because when your team sees major talent on the bump from real contenders everybody knows you pitch around Freeman and Acuna when he’s hot and you let the rest of the over valued bargains beat you. You work the starter and get to the Braves pen which will falter when there’s pressure baseball. Rinse. Repeat.

    You give us too much credit..we were #2/3 in payroll in '95. We've never won with a middling payroll. But at least it's better than the Phillies' big payrolls and 2 titles in 39 years to show for it. The whole point of a big payroll is to actually win something lol.

    The Braves need a ace, trade for Max Scherzer.

    Phil’s have only been a big payroll team since they opened the new park in 2004 and in 5 of those years really were average salary wise around the league. They won with home grown guys.

    I'm all for it.

    The Braves do have an ace, however.
