MIL better bullpen, which is essential in this sport, but what else really?
ATL series +123 with a far better lineup, bullpen is inferior but not a seismic gap.
Hard to see Fried dogged to many right now though he was in the regular season to some scrubs, not a huge Morton fan considering his age.
Burnes is solid, Woodruff, too. Not a lot of faith in Peralta and losing Devin Williams to the drunken celebration broken hand is lol worthy
Hate to see this, think Brew in a sweep is a real possibility, 3-1 at worstBraves have knocked Burnes around each time they have seen him! Milw -154? Cmon now. Braves all day to steal game 1! I also like Braves just played a meaningful playoff type series vs phillies last week while milw been on cruise control for a month!!

Braves seem like that 7-9 team that somehow got into the playoffs in NFL
Brew v CWS or TB is ideal for meI could be wrong. I have some milw futures so I mean it won’t break my heart if I lose this one. Just think the price way too high here. I like Morton and think he will give Atl a chance today. I really don’t think milw pen as scary without Williams. I actually feel like Braves playing meaningful baseball down the stretch a big advantage to start the series. Lot of cards playoff runs came when they had a season similar to Braves. Obviously cards history is much better than Braves in playoffs, just 2 years ago we beat them in a series we had no business winning! Lol. Milw aint stl tho! I do think Brewers prob win the series but also think at these prices it worth a shot to play Braves to steal one of the 1st 2, I think this goes 5.,
They would get blitzed by SFG or LAD, I do not want to see thatI know the East was super weak, which crazy cause I thought it was stacked coming into the year but muts did what they do and Phillies still the Phillies (fish be winning this division sooner than later!), I think atl better than a 7-9 nfl playoff team tho. That seems way to disrespectful, they did a fantastic job at trade deadline after losing Acuna!
Top 5 for me that gameThat woulda been a awesome game to be at tho! Don’t think there any sporting event I rather attend than playoff baseball!
Top 5 for me that game
G7 when Dbacks won will never be surpassed, Tiger US Open at Torrey playoff a distant 2nd
Wild Card game that year when KC beat Oakland in extras is probably 3rd and I'm not remotely a Royals fan but that game had it all
2001 WS was nuts, I got laid off after 9/11 and just went to town on WS tickets that year
Got 4 for G1, sold 2 and went with buddy (he got face value)
Sold all 4 for G2
Had 12 for G6 and again went with bud but the other 10 were sold at a nice premium, mostly Yanks fans flying in. Loved how that game shut them up.
Lucky to get 4 for G7, sold 2 and buddy again paid face to be there. Absolute last row in the stadium but right behind the plate. So high beer runs weren't a thing and glad I wasn't too wasted to enjoy. What a crazy series and after 9/11 to boot.
Did well, now too lazy to play the gameMan you had to make a killing on those! Pretty much all the big cards playoff games and WS I been to I paid between 800-1k per ticket! Fuckinh dumb, I didn’t care bout money back then tho! Lol
2da back on his marlins boatI know the East was super weak, which crazy cause I thought it was stacked coming into the year but muts did what they do and Phillies still the Phillies (fish be winning this division sooner than later!), I think atl better than a 7-9 nfl playoff team tho. That seems way to disrespectful, they did a fantastic job at trade deadline after losing Acuna!
Hard to find 1-2 punch pitching better than morton/fried the last month or so…I think it's a 5 game series either way. The Braves are any entirely different team since they acquired Soler, Duval, and Pedersen. Yes it was a dog shit division, but let's not forget they never spent a day above .500 until Aug 6th.
Morton is aging. I would've started Fried. Then I could've brought him back on short rest for game 4.
I probably lean Milw for the series. But I don't see the mismatch that alot of people do.
Hope you are right.I think braves punch them in the mouth today. Was really impressed with the bullpen keeping brewers down late, even tho there were baserunners everywhere the last 3 innings! Anderson has been solid of late, post injury, and has been here before. I think we see a game alot like cws/hou yesterday, where braves jump out early, allows anderson to pound strikes, and milw lineup pretty brutal right now.
I really don't want to see Ynoa anytime. He's been awful since coming back from breaking his hand.What would you have done? Start Ynoa?
