    Such a great win. I’ll be honest, I didn’t think they were gonna pull it off. Go Braves!

    Very cool. Freeman’s GIDP ended last season’s hopes. This year his walkoff puts us in with time to spare. Happy for him; he’s a good kid.

    I was at the Ted last night. What a great moment. And I know it’s easy to say now, but once that passed ball sent Chipper to third, the whole place could feel the wheels coming off for Dunn and that really good things were about to happen. That, and my rally cap was particularly strong last night.

    And how about all of the post game celebration in the clubhouse and out on the field? So great. I think back to all the post game celebrations in the early and mid-2000′s and last night is so above and beyond on the excitement meter it’s got to bode well for the post season.

    We as Atlanta Braves players and fans went the playoffs for 15 years straight and I’ll admit that even I got a little spoiled. I realize that the MLB regular season is the hardest regular season in professional sports and I think we all appreciate it even more since we’ve only made it through once in the last 6 years.

    Did y’all see the company Freddie and Meds entered via that game? The other players in baseball history who’ve sent their teams to the PS with a bomb includes Hank Aaron in 1957.

    But Meds’s deal might be even better; the all-time leader in team wins whenever they start the game with 22. The only others with 20-22 in a row: Whitey Ford, Carl Hubbell, Lefty Grove, and Roger Clemens.

    Between that game, Chipper’s tour, and Kimbrel’s historical dominance, there’s some good memories. Wish Beachy were here.

    Jason Heyward is a really good baseball player.

    Give that man a Cy Young.

    It’s a shame we have to lose tomorrow. A sweep would be mighty nice.

    I hate Werth

    Walker Says:

    The Braves basically have win every game for the rest of the season to win the division and it’s very possible. However, at the same time it’s imperative to rest guys like Chipper, Heyward and Prado. Who knows what happens.

    Steve Says:

    Anyone here have tickets to the October 5 one-game playoff? If so, we should meet up prior to the game.

    Leah Says:

    Me me me!!! Tell me when and where and I’ll be there with bells in!

    Leah Says:

    *in. Not in.

    Leah Says:

    Crap! On on on on. Geez.

    Anne Says:

    The promise of Leah with bells in is super-tempting

  17. 42
    Leah Says:

    Come on Anne…everybody’s doing it.

    Watching this game, I can’t help but feel some lingering faith in Hanson. I think it’s like how some amputees feel their missing limbs.

    Curt Says:

    Amazing how a 2-0 Hanson deficit feels so much different than a 2-0 deficit with anyone else.

    Nats/Phils 3-3

  21. 46
    Curt Says:

    Going with Todd Helton

    will Says:

    i will love him and pet him and squeeze him and call him Ug

  23. 48
    Curt Says:

    Thank the Phils for pitching Tyler Colvin tonight

  24. 49
    Curt Says:

    Cloyd. Even better

    David Says:

    Is there an ABT meet-up happening before or during tomorrow night’s game?
