Braves vs. Phillies game thread 9/22/2018

Folty vs. Arrieta If I had told you back in March that the Braves were going to outright win the NL East title you most likely would’ve laughed in my face.

Braves send Mike Foltynewicz to the mound looking for a division title

It’s been five long years... Well here we are. It’s a little unbelievable to think about, but the Braves are on the verge of clinching the NL East title for the first time since 2013 and they’ll have their ace on the mound to attempt it. Mike Foltynewicz...

Kurt Suzuki gets the start in high stakes matinee

It’ll be Kurt Suzuki’s turn to catch Mike Foltynewicz today. The Braves have become an offensive juggernaut over the last couple of games again thanks in part to going up against a Phillies staff that has completely fallen apart over the last month. The lineup you see today very well could be the starters in game one of the NLDS. However, if the Braves clinch today you can expect to see them give some guys rest between now and the playoffs. Here is how Atlanta will go for the title: A win today wins the East.#ChopOn https://t.co/c0tQFCkFaf pic.twitter.com/JgtMhsXuso— Atlanta Braves...

Atlanta Braves: The case for Chad Sobotka

Still looking for bullpen answers?  So are we… and one of those answers might just be emerging from right under our noses.

Nationals officially eliminated from NL East race... maybe 2019 will be the year...

With the Nationals’ loss and the Braves’ win, the 2016-17 NL East champs were officially eliminated from contention in the division in 2018. Maybe 2019 will be the year the Washington Nationals finally break through and make it past the NLDS, who knows... What we do know now is that 2018 won’t be the year.

Braves deserve the East, partly because nobody else does

The Atlanta Braves led the National League East by two games at the close of business on Aug. 31. They now lead by 6 ½ games and are positioned to clinch the National League East with two more victories this weekend. Credit them for doing what needed doing, even as they’ve had a three-game losing streak and a four-game skid in September, a month that has seen them go 11-8. Credit them for also being in the right division.
