Tonight, in a very convincing victory over the Colorado Rockies, the Braves grabbed a lead even our bullpen couldn't blow and clinched consecutive division title number 14. No one in the history of baseball has managed such a string of successes. Of course we'll probably lose to the Astros in the first round, but the fact remains that this is a night for celebration. Our well-documented postseason failings notwithstanding, this is a team that overcome some incredible obstacles to do something very few thought could be accomplished. I'll make one prediction right now: next spring, a bunch of people will say "This is the year for the Phillies (or Marlins, or for a deluded few, Mets) to finally catch the Braves." And sooner or later, one of those "experts" will be right...but I wouldn't bet on it happening just yet!
