    I’m excited that the Braves could clinch tomorrow, but with all that happened today I don’t know how much the Braves should celebrate in public. Just sort of do the same end-of-game celebrating and move into the clubhouse.

    Also, off topic, but would Garcia be eligible for the postseason roster?

    • Jeff Schafer

      True, but first we have to beat a team that is playing very well and now have a memorable horrific story in their pocket. Nats will be a tough series

      Yes Garcia is eligible for the postseason. He will be used out of the bullpen unless anything else major happens

      • Matthew Jones

        Yeah, I guess I shouldn’t just assume that we’ll win tomorrow for both games. Wishful thinking, I suppose. :)

        And thanks for the clarification. I just am thinking that Freddi might go with the ‘hot hand’ if Garcia keeps pitching well as a starter. I would also guess that if Maholm continues to be ineffective (and/or his elbow keeps bothering him), we might go with Garcia in his place.

      Since Pitt/St. Louis/LADodgers ALL lost on Monday, Tuesday is suddenly a day in which the Braves have a chance to headlock the National League home-field race. A double-header sweep would clinch the East, as we know, but also extend their lead to at least 3 full games (4 counting the tie-breakers).

      Of course, the converse is also true: a DH loss would throw everything into chaos – and bring Washington firmly into the mix. Very important day.

      I realize I am in the minority these days, or so it seems ~ but I totally disagree with this PC notion that the Braves shouldn’t celebrate if they win. For me, it in no way indicates disrespect for what happened in Washington. It’s the natural reaction to a goal sought, and achieved. It doesn’t mean Atlanta doesn’t care, but in this PC world, that is how it is taken and then the reaction is, well, over-reaction. I imagine that Wren has already warned the Braves not to celebrate too much if they win both games today, but that is being done out of the sad realities of how wrongly (in my opinion) people think, not out of it actually being inappropriate if the Braves did celebrate.

      I think that those kinds of celebrations can be good in the wake of such tragedies. If the Nats won both games, and hooted and hollered, wouldn’t that be “inappropriate” too?

      Suppose I’ll never have a job in “public” relations.

        Oh, don’t get me wrong, it’s been a long season and the Braves completely SHOULD celebrate…just not out on the field if they were to clinch today. Move it inside, you know, then go nuts. And plus, once they get home they should publicly celebrate.

        • cheadrick

          Well, as I said, that’s certainly the politically correct thing to do, and what the Braves probably will do. I just don’t agree. :) It’s great that we can disagree in this country, although that, too, is becoming increasingly unacceptable.

          • Matthew Jones

            Agree there! Or disagree? I’m not sure. :D

          • cheadrick

            Well we saw it today. The nats pulled off the win late, and certainly celebrated. So, was that not inappropriate? I guess I fail to see how it could be, if it wouldn’t have been for the Braves had they won.
