Braves Live will still air on Fox Southeast. Chip Caray, Paul Byrd and Nick Green hosting with Kelsey Wingert live in LA. They'll be delivering the postgame reactions from Snitker and the Braves.

According to DOB Braves say they aren't happy being here. They're hungry for more and plan to "play aggressive and **** good baseball". They understand they're underdogs but Minter added "we all want to be superstars and this is the time where you become one." 

Unlike in some past seasons the Braves are young, eager and hungry. The recent Braves playoff teams just didn't seem to have that fire burning. I don't know if they'll win but this team wants it. They want it bad and it's led by Freeman who wants nothing more than to erase the playoff failures in the Fredi era.

What this team needs is a game like Avery and Smoltz pitched against Pittsburgh in 91. Going to need to manufacture runs, hit and run, steal bases. Be patience at the plate, dont let Kershaw get rolling.

That would have to be the only way I'll take it. I just can't stand the taste. Plus I hate hot drinks. I don't even like hot chocolate. And yes, I've tried cold coffee too.

Hot chocolate is life.

Kershaw is pitching Game 2. We have to worry about Ryu tonight. Dodgers are hoping to be up 1-0 before Kershaw even takes the mound.

If you don't have MLB Network a lot of providers are giving free trials just for this week in Braves country. If that's not an option they're saying to do the YouTube TV  7 day free trial. That will give you the game for free.

No Freeman or Moylan...

Moylan out for the season with his shoulder injury. Freeman is a healthy scratch.

So Newc, Julio and Touki are in the pen?

We don't know. Braves will evaluate after the first couple of games. If we're down 2-1 Folty is likely coming back. If up 2-1 they may go one of those 3.

I just don't understand why MLB refuses to put out an app that lets you watch MLB Network. It's downright ridiculous that they're the only one that doesn't.

Mark Bowman saying Newcomb is likely a lefty specialist. He said Snitker indicated they may use him in that role if they opted to start Julio. Bowman points out there's no reason have Julio on the roster if Newcomb was going to start.

I mean these guys gotta be available tonight and tomorrow. There's only 5 RP on the roster.

The one surprise I had was rostering Teheran and not Sam Freeman. I think you can pencil Teheran in for Game 4 unless the Braves are down 1-2.

Newcomb and Touki likely are. I'd say Newcomb for sure is. Touki most likely is as well. Julio finished strong and would get Game 4 in Atlanta where he's 100 times better compared to LA. Julio did just set a team record for lowest batting average allowed at .196. If he can continue to be aggressive he's a solid #4.

Well men, game time is close. Can't wait to see us smoke these guys. Time to see the "kids" show the world what ATL Baseball is about. Couldn't be more excited.
