My dad also. I didn’t figure it out until later in life when they finally won in the 90sThe Braves are cool. My grandpa was a fan because they were in Boston when he was a kid.
Good pitching always beats good hitting. And the Astros pitching was greatPretty sure we'll get those runs back in the ninth! No, our offensive collapse is shocking.and inexplicable. and reminds me of the '78 collapse when the unstoppable offense suddenly went silent
I can’t understand it either, but I also can’t understand the last 3rd of the season. It’s like there’s a button that gets pressed and suddenly all of the life comes out of the team. Nobody can expect multiple grand slams every series, but no runs in the last 20+ innings is just bizarre. I’m still proud of them though.To go from up 2-1 with Grienke throwing 89mph fastballs with no pen behind him to this is just fucking shocking to me.
and there’s only so many moves you can make with a fatally flawed bullpen and a lousy bench. They were a few players short.The better team clearly won this series, not sure there’s too much to be mad about really.The team scored 1 fucking run in their last 25 inning. Coras Midas touch wouldn’t have done fuck. You could have thrown vintage Pedro out there for 3 straight games and it wouldn’t have mattered
Yes! What he said. That and the fact that their hole in the line-up was predictable, and ours were some of our most productive players during the season. Renfroe hit no better than Maldonado, and the Sox production with men in scorin position and with two outs was nonexistent.Stranded 8 runners in the first 7 innings of that game with chances to extend the lead almost every inning, that's what's going to end up having cost them the series.
In 2018 he could do no wrong - every close decision he seemed to choose correctly. This year, there were some that were head-scratchers at the time but looks awful in retrospect. Sale pitching to Alvarez with first open in game 4 comes to mind.
I don’t think it was pressure. They just stopped hitting and the Astros pitched wellFun season. Disappointing final three games. Three runs in three games. Hard to win when that happens. Renfroe, X, Devers, JD, Kike, Kyle all terrible in last three games. The pressure clearly got to them.
Yeah, there are no palatable outcomes left, but Stros/Dodgers is the worst because Fox would still keep pushing the “lol at the Sox for trading Mookie” angle to obnoxious new heights. So go Braves I guess.I'm just the opposite. I don't think I'd watch Astros/Dodgers. I like this Braves team.
The pressure??? Maybe it was the amazing pitching the Astros got? No, it's always got to be about the flaws of our team, never about good play by the other team.Fun season. Disappointing final three games. Three runs in three games. Hard to win when that happens. Renfroe, X, Devers, JD, Kike, Kyle all terrible in last three games. The pressure clearly got to them.
Almost like close decisions are pretty close to coin-flips and by definition even making the "right" decision won't always work out.In 2018 he could do no wrong - every close decision he seemed to choose correctly. This year, there were some that were head-scratchers at the time but looks awful in retrospect. Sale pitching to Alvarez with first open in game 4 comes to mind.
