    Three.

    God if you had told me the Braves were going to score a total of 5 runs in game 3 and 4 and win both I'd have laughed. The pitching is just outstanding right now. Which it had to be.

    Not feeling secure though. I just watched this same team plus Acuna and Ozuna lose to the Dodgers in the 2020 NLCS when up 3-1.

    Jerry Remy passed away in the middle of his 7th bout with cancer.


    Red Sox fans know how very much this absolutely sucks.

    Jerry Remy visited my high school, filming a TV commercial for the Jimmy Fund while standing outside our baseball field. His line was about a local savings bank making donations to the Jimmy Fund for new customers, was "a great double play".

    Our gym teacher/high school baseball coach was a friend of his, and while they were setting up filming the commercial, our coach had us run laps around the field for that "class". As a cross country runner back then, I could run the mile in under 5 minutes, so I raced a friend also on the team, we ran in to shower and change, and came back to watch the filming, as it was not something we'd regularly see while in high school.

    After a few re-takes while they messed around with the light, Jerry said "Hang on, I need a cigarette", and he lit up. We were amazed that a professional baseball player was also a smoker, but this was the 80's and even the students (seniors) who were aged 18 were allowed to smoke at school back then in the senior lounge, and most of the teachers did as well.

    Jerry walked right by us after his smoke, and he winked at us and said "nice tie" to my friend, who was wearing a Red Sox necktie.

    Even though Remy was a leader of the hated Red Sox Nation, he always came off as a genuinely likeable guy, and he will be missed. Rest in Peace, Remy.

    Keith Hernandez tells a story about being so stressed during a game in '86 that he smoked a whole pack of cigarettes in the dugout tunnel during the game. I mean with the amount of coke and greenies those guys were doing it's not shock they could smoke a pack in a couple hours and then still play baseball.

    Atlanta better clinch tonight because if there’s a game seven, I bet Houston wins it.

    I'm actually more convinced that if we win it it's going to be in game 7. Max Fried has been ok but not special in this post season where Ian Anderson has been amazing.

    And the Braves tend to go the way of their starting pitching.

    Hip Hip Jorge!

    That ball is officially in outer space.

    Max Fried is 15-1 this season when working with a 3 run lead.

    Let's fucking go.

    If you'd told me before the season started that after losing so many weapons that we'd be staring down a World Series gm 6 I'd have just shook my head. So I'm happy for another really strong season.

    But it still fuckin stings. That damn close.

    Congrats RP. Soak it up, bud.

    You know it man! I'm getting stoned off my ass tonight fellas.

    Amazing series. Astros just didn't have the starters healthy to make it work for the whole post season and I know that feeling well. Nothing but respect for the Stros and its time for the rest of the league and all of us fans to let the scandal go. That team had to die for the sins of baseball and it's in the past. This is a different team with one of the greatest baseball men of all time at the helm. Nothing but respect for this team.

    Good God I wanna go back 25 years and tell myself all about this season. Losing so much but plowing through and playing like a true team of destiny in the playoffs.

    The connection for me here goes back so far. Sure I love my Titans. But they didn't come here till I was a young man. The love I have for the Braves and vols football goes back to my childhood.

    Nothing could feel better than this.

    Not even if wrestling got good again.

    Congrats RP and all Braves fans here. Can't believe they did all this without Acuna. Should be a heavy favorite next year too.

    Happy for Freddy. If that was his last at bat as a brave you couldn't write it better.

    Happy for Braves fans, but I'd be shocked if Freddy moves outta Atlanta.

    The odds makers have Dodgers at 1, Stros at 2 Braves at 3.

    As for Freddie, if they don't sign him (which they will be crucified for) at least he and we got the closure of him finally getting a ring for the Braves and hitting a homerun in his last at bat.

    I would be surprised if they don't extend his deal though. The payroll isn't even what it has been in recent years and revenue was higher than expected this year. Freddie will come back for less than market value and has basically said as much. Just offer him something fair and let's get this done.

    If they don't though, just God Jesus please don't let him become a fucking Yankee.

    RIP Julio Lugo, who died from a heart attack at 45.

    Where I used to work, one of the older guys on the building maintenance crew had the same first initial and last name. He won tickets to a Red Sox game in the blood donor raffle, and when the Red Cross found out he was a single dad who couldn't afford to take the day off, travel to Boston, etc., they got him an autographed "J. Lugo" jersey. Could not have made this guy happier.

    Scherzer to the Mets for 3/$130 million. If deGrom comes back healthy, what a 1-2 punch at the top of the rotation next season. FIVE Cy Youngs between the two of them.

    Please, Cohen, keep going. Blow all the way past the luxury tax. Sign everyone.

    Hopefully they avoid a labor stoppage next season.

    You just won the World Series. You shouldn't let anything Braves related stress you for the next 3-5 years.

    All I know is if all he wants is the rumored 180 for 6 then he better get it from Atlanta.

    Three to five years?

    Had my Canucks been able to close in 2011, I would have spent the rest of my life content with a lottery team; just one Cup so I can die a happy man.

    Well, he won't get a new deal now until the lockout ends.
