I have said this before and I am sure as I continued writing about our Braves, I will say it again. Bobby Cox just wanted to win series. We finally won the BIG one in 1995 and although more would of been nice, we have 1 ring and 1 title.
Just winning series will pull our team out from the basement of the NL East. It will not happen over night, but after while, we can push our team’s winning percentage at or over .500 and that will raise a few eyebrows in MLB!
Recently, as in yesterday, the Braves traveled to St. Louis and in their house not only beat the Cardinals but dominated them. I was impressed as a lot of baseball writers were as well. With a solid pitching staff and an offense that is clicking at the right time, a Wild Card birth is not unrealistic. Even in a short Wild Card round of the best out 5 games, I can see why I love the Braves Chances in those series.
