Did you hear that?

That was the sound of hearts breaking in Atlanta after 18 innings.

    At least we didn’t have to see Astros celebrating on the diamond at Turner Field.

    Let’s just hope most of the Braves and their fans watched the joyous celebration in Houston and that those memories stick with them in the offseason.

    You’d think losing in this way pretty much every year in the 21st century would jar a winning series out of the Braves, but it hasn’t.

    If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to find a beer – not to cry into, but to erase all dreams I ever had that this would be the year we’d win it all.

    Stupid me.

    I have to say, while it was clear the bullpen wasnt there to make it all the way, they did a stunning job for 8 innings.

    The Astros were the better team. I hope to see them and the White Sox in the Series.

    Deja vu all over again and again and again and again. You get the idea.

    The Braves will start winning when a) fans start actually going to games, and b) they quit with that all that ridiculous faux-Indian crap — the hatchets and the rhythmic moaning and whatnot, c) Ted Turner tears down that pathetic circus he built for his team and puts together a real ballpark.

    Ted Turner has absolutely zero to do with the Braves any longer. He sold Turner Broadcasting to Time Warner who were bought by AOL.

    Ted doesn’t even sit on AOL’s board anymore, so his control over Turner field is purely in name.
