They never do jack**** for him when he gets hit, they throw him under the bus, and they generally suck. 

There's some weird dynamic there.... 

These are the same dugout of leaders from 6 years ago that 'youst' to act like the policemen of the game anytime folks had fun tho I suspect it's mostly Bmac while Freddie just sorts of enables it.

 

Not looking forward to the hypothetical day Acuna is talking to the Athletic about how stifled he felt in that dugout

Can you imagine the media coverage if Matt Ryan got speared after sliding and Julio just looked and walked off? 

But nah. We got some "interesting" guys covering the braves....

The upside of an elimination game beatdown like this is they can't hold onto the idea that a somewhat better version of this team is a contender.

 It'll help if the Dodgers win tonight.

Atlanta or not you'll never convince me we never had a shot with homefield advantage against a team we dominated all year. (And a dam good thing we didn't have to find out cause losing to the Nats would have been 19× worse than this)

Nah.  It's baseball, random **** happens.  This team was good enough to win 97 games, it was good enough to be a contender.  It just so happens they're an Atlanta team, so that was never in the cards.  Ha.  Cards.

We wouldn't have beaten the Dodgers or the Nats with one reliable SP and the 3-6 hitters hitting like they have been. The Nats would blown our ***** off after what we did to them in the regular season.

Kinda impressive they only gave up 3 runs 2-9

We don't have a bad bullpen, but Fried was the freshest arm after game 4, they needed him to pull off a miracle, and he totally bombed instead. It was bad luck in addition to a lack of better options.

Someone needs to photoshop the famous scene from “Old Yeller” with the dog wearing a Braves hat and the kid wearing a Cardinals hat.

This feels more like Shane
