Braves streak of divisional titles comes to an end
2006-09-12 21:47

Without even picking up a bat and throwing a pitch today because of a rainout, the Atlanta Braves saw their streak of 14 straight divisional titles, starting in 1991 and running through 2005 (no winners were named in 1994), end tonight. The New York Mets rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the eighth inning at Florida to pull out a 6-4 victory. It was the Mets 89th win of the year. Atlanta cannot win more than 88 games.

The Braves still have a very, very, very long shot at the wild card. They are five games behind the Padres, but they are in seventh place in that race.

My sister was born six weeks after the Braves lost the World Series in the first year of their streak.

She is now a freshman (-person?) in high school.

At the end of the last season the Braves did not make the playoffs, Barry Bonds had 117 career home runs. He hit #711, among others, this season.

More to come from Jayson Stark soon!

When the Braves are eliminated from the wildcard, I will definitely raise a glass.

And whatever's in it, I will dump out onto their prone, broken, no-postseason body.

2 Gracious, such venom! I used to feel that way about them when the Dodgers and Braves were in the same division, but now, not so much.

The Yankees, however...

The Braves were eliminated, but the worst team in the National League, the Cubs, were not. I'm not sure that's fair.

The Cubs have been eliminated for a few days already. The Braves still have a chance at the wild card.
