I might be going out on a limb here, but I am assuming you are no fan of the Braves and Brian McCann.

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

The Dodgers are a big money team, but after their previous owner was such a dou**e I am happy for the Dodger fans.

Good for them, and GO PIRATES!

I'm on a whiskey diet. I've lost 3 days already.

You, sir, are a brave man.

It was a heartbreaking way to end the season with the team's primary strength (bullpen) letting them down multiple times in the series. It was interesting to compare and contrast the two rosters - coming into the season I said my heart wants Braves/Tigers in the World Series, but my head says Dodgers/Tigers. The Dodgers are built well for a playoff series with Kershaw/Greinke at the top and Ryu/Nolasco to round out a solid playoff rotation, especially if the latter two are pitching in LA. It was mentioned on one of the ESPN radio broadcasts of the games that the Dodgers' playoff roster boasted a 2013 salary of almost 3 times that of the Braves' playoff roster.

The Braves were the youngest team in the National League this season and only the Astros were younger in all of baseball, so the next few years are bright in Atlanta. Glad to see them back atop the East this year, however!
