    Folty had a good game, but he is never going to be the second coming of John Smoltz.

    Albies wasn't terrible and was far from the reason we lost the series, but he wasn't particularly good either. However, if Freeman, JD, or Markakis even only played at Ozzie's level, we win the series easily.

    I seem to remember Ozzie hitting the go ahead homer in Game 4... not blow out homers from Freddie or JD.

    Sure. Again, he wasn't terrible. But he finished with a slash line of .250/.304/.400. for the series. That's not particularly good. But certainly, it might as well be Babe Ruth type of production compared to what JD, Neck, and FF gave us.

    The game 5 disaster was equal parts Folty, Fried and a devastating Freeman error.

    A rotation led by Soroka, Fried and Folty is good enough to compete in October. Improving over that group in any meaningful way is probably too expensive for the Braves and their $130M opening day payroll, so folks might want to start thinking about creative ways to deploy the pitching talent already in the system.
    Yeah, not Ozzie. He was solid.

    Yup. Compared to what Braves hitters usually do in the playoffs it was solid. But the hitting outside of Swanson and Acuna left a lot to be desired.

    It was supposed to be Acuna hitting the mammoth homers in the WS... not Soto. And supposed to be Freeman hitting that homerun in HOU, not Rendon. And supposed to be Neck hitting homers that Kendrick was. Sigh.

    "Compete"

    What does this mean? A realistic chance to beat a rotation of Scherzer, Strasburg, and Corbin or Verlander, Cole, and Greinke? Nah.

    And why does it matter to you, anyway? You don't care about hanging banners- you are on record as just wanting to be entertained.

    You suck.

    But there's still plenty of what if and luck to talk about here. What if Yelich isn't hurt (he doesn't boot that play), and deadening the ball swung the pendulum back toward leaning hard on stud starting pitching and looking to just hit the ball instead of trying to swing for power.


    You are right. Unless I meant it to point out that "best" team in baseball could have been sent home after one game ;-)

    I just hate that play in stuff where one game decides a whole season. And before anyone says but game seven was one game, don't.
