Thank You

On the day my oldest daughter turned 9, my Atlanta Braves 2018 season came to an end at the hands of the Dodgers. I was hoping they had another run, another rally left in them but it just wasn’t meant to be.

I could complain how it wasn’t a fair fight, going up against a team with near unlimited revenue to sign the superstar players and such, but in the end my team just ran into a buzzsaw of a team. As much as I hate to say it, I tip my hat to the Dodgers on a well played series.

However in a year when virtually no one expected the Braves to do anything I’m so thankful for what the team did accomplish. I hate that our offense disappeared. I hate that we clinched the division so early because I feel as if they lost their momentum. The future is bright though and I believe they’ll be a force to be reckoned with for years to come. They need to make some moves this off season and I believe they have the right guy in place to do so.

It’s been a fun ride and I’m not ready for it to be over, but I suppose I can now turn my attention towards my Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Hornets. However, when April comes I’ll be ready to Chop On!


  1. Your analysis of the Braves is similar to mine with my beloved Athletics. Well... assuming the A's don't trade all of their talent away during the offseason.

  2. Congrats on the Braves making it this far, especially since nothing was expected of them. And happy birthday to your daughter!
