    Couldn't even manage to score a run without trash cans in home elimination game. Pathetic, tbh.

    None of this actually makes your loss less ty.

    I think this Astros team is finished as is. You’re going to potentially lose a lot of good players so it wouldn’t surprise me if the Astros go back to mediocrity.

    Congrats to the Braves. The better team won, plain and simple. It really sucked for me to find out that the Astros cheated back in 2017, but they'll always be my favorite baseball team no matter what. I really hope this is not the last run they'll make for a while, but I suppose we'll see. Again, congratulations to the Atlanta Braves.

    Sure is less ty. You cannot put your warped east coast feelings onto me so there.
    Braves are a likable enough bunch.
    Astros may be on the slide. They had a great run.
    Time will tell.

    Congrats FrostKing. Expertly done.
    Thank you Reck

    I will fully cherish this remembering how long and difficult it was just to return. Braves might return even stronger down the road and yet go cold for one week in October.

    I forgot just how long the road to reach the WS truly is. In 1996 we even won the first 2 games of the WS attempting repeat. I will try my best not to be jaded. Remain excited and surprised by what this core accomplishes in the near future.

    Unlikely WS run, national darling and long suffering ender were all elements that made this so special and it won't be duplicated again anytime soon for this fan base

    Thank you buddy.

    How unlikely for Soler considering he missed majority of the NLCS with Covid

    EDIT: Braves first team to acquire LCS & WS MVP midseason

    They're not seeking some phony butt rings.
    This isn't an ABC / Disney/ Laker production.
    They were selling your .

    Astros franchise is now 1-3 in the World Series

    4 trips since 2005. So every 4 years. Impressive.

    Awesome way to end the series, curbstomping the Astros in their own stadium. Congrats to the Braves.

    2021 Braves Championship Path

    Brewers 95-67
    Dodgers 106-56
    Astros 95-67

    .609 combined win% is the 2nd-toughest for any World Series winner in the Wild Card Era (since 1995). It was .613 for 2004 Red Sox, who went through the Angels (92-70), Yankees (101-61) & Cardinals (105-57)

    After game 1, I was very hopeful, though I knew Atlanta had the better pitching overall. It was disappointing and frustrating to lose that series, especially now that Correa has moved on to Minnesota.

    Still, growing up an Astros fan, I never thought they would ever make the WS, and then in 2005 they did. Once we started losing 100 games a season, I thought we were done for a long time. Then, 2017 was magical. We actually won the WS. Then, we went back two more timings, losing a heartbreaker to the Nationals, before being beaten down by the Braves.

    As far as the cheating goes.....they cheated and got caught, but so did the Red Sox, Mets, and a few other teams. Every single team cheats in every sport. The other teams are just pissed cause the Astros were way more sophisticated. So the haters and the cry baby es.

    It has been a fun ride, the last 5 years. I hope it will continue, and it can if Bregman actually shows up this season. At least we still have Mighty Mouse, Jose Altuve......

    GO ASTROS

    Braves ownership stepped it up with this ring. LED light. 1 pearl for Joc. Engraved 7-30-21 when all the trades were made. 23 diamonds for 23 postseason homers. Alot of symbolic stuff for franchise history.
