    Also credit to Max Fried for keeping the team in the game today. Could have easily imploded. Good win. Enjoy the day off Monday boys.
    I'm very impressed with him. He showed some moxie today

    Maximum pitchers being discussed is 13 or 14 as part of the new 28 player limit.
    Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;......

    And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
    The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
    Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

    But now we have to deal with Acuna pouting for a week. Wonder what snit did to make FF pout this series. Hopefully they resolve it quickly.

    I still dont think we'd beat them in a series, but it is good to beat them, they have certainly had our number to say the least.

    It may actually be the case that the message to Acuna be best delivered during a game that turns into a come from behind win. He will wish he were part of it.

    yea a small sample as in season match-ups always are but still a track record of success against them.

    I don't think Acuna will pout. Doesn't seem like that kind of person to me. He's just showboaty. I think he knows he deserved his benching.

    Yeah I'm sure he realizes it. He screwed up and deserved to get pulled. Lesson learned

    Do the right thing and the consequences will take care of themselves. It always happens in the long term. Today, we were fortunate enough to reap a short term result.

    Just about everyone in baseball had punched the Dodgers ticket to another World Series. This Braves team not only proved they can play with the Dodgers, but can beat them. This was a huge series win and can prove to be a major confidence booster.

    No Markakis, Riley, Ender for 1.5 games, or Dansby, and still won 2/3.

    I know we didnt see Kershaw or Buehler but to win 2/3 vs LA with how injured the Braves are is impressive.

    I'd still put them in the WS but if the Braves are healthy and got to play them, let's see what happens.

    He does seem to know how to pitch against them, one reason i think AA got MM.

    I’m at the front of the line of the "Let the Kids Play" movement but it was the absolute right move for Snit to pull Acuña! You have Ender dragging his leg to score the other night and what if it was a Game 7 or elimination game in the playoffs and your chances are limited and every mistake is magnified, hopefully lesson learned like with Andruw and everyone is able to move on.

    Ah, I thought that part, along with the new 26-man regular season roster, didn't take effect until 2020.
