    We shall see what happens come playoff time. This season has been fantastic considering we were projected 3rd or 4th in the NL East before the season began. Lots of exciting players who play HARD.

    The downfall will be our pitching, particularly our bullpen. Every Braves fan who has watched our games knows this. Still excited for postseason baseball again!

    PS; I am hoping we can get some more jinxes from the non-Braves fans in this thread!

    Yep. Two ultimate celebrations in baseball. They were awesome. Not bad for the losingest franchise in the history of North American sports. think about that. I've celebrated more championships than Braves fans and I'm a fan of the franchise that has lost more games than any other franchise in this hemisphere.

    Players can do what they want. I'm not gonna judge guys who worked for 162 games to accomplish a goal. But for a fan? That's bush league.

    I just think you must be miserable most of the time. I kind of feel sorry for you where you're unhappy 95% of the time with your team.

    We won't burn a car or anything but it is cause for some celebration.

    I was born in 1976. So for my contemporaries, we're on equal levels.

    But I'm not a Gump. I don't need to live a life vicariously through my favorite sports teams as they often do. There are many things in life worthy of celebrations. A sports team being almost good enough and falling short of the ultimate prize is not one of them. You let sports define your mood? Interesting.

    And there is a wide chasm between "unhappy" and "celebrating". A person doesn't have to go to either extreme.

    So if the Braves suck, what does that say about the mighty Philadelphia Phillies? Do they swallow? Toss?

    In my lifetime, the Braves and Phillies franchises each have two World Championships, with one of the Braves' while they were in Milwaukee.

    Truthfully, don't know if we can enjoy the massive amounts of joy this thread brought last year every time it was bumped. But, I am damn sure going to try. Winking

    It’s adorable that your fanbase celebrates being almost good enough. You’re all set for the next wedding with your dress as you guys have been perpetual bridesmaids.

    Is it that Braves fans are celebrating being "almost good enough" or just celebrating the fact that the Phillies are worse?

    Not sure what you’re talking about. In my lifetime I’ve seen 2 World Championships and 5 WS appearances. The Braves have one championship in that time and it only came because they were paired against a more snake bitten franchise in the Indians.
