It was just after the Mets series when this podcast was recorded. As you can guess, we had a few things to say about the Atlanta Braves — and about baseball in general.
While it didn’t seem like it at the time we recorded this podcast, since the Atlanta Braves were in the process of losing a game to the Pirates — yes, the Pirates — after having just allowed the injury-depleted Mets to walk all over the Braves in 2-out-of-3 fashion.
Yes — a Mets team without 3 starting outfielders. Without Braves-killer Jeff McNeil. Without perennial Cy Young finalist Jacob deGrom. With myriad other injuries that made the club look like a road team during the middle of the Florida Grapefruit League season.
Winning teams can’t let that happen. And yet… it did. Twice in 3 tries… only saved via Ronald Acuna Jr.‘s walk-off whammy.
But sure — now — maybe recovery is on the way? Now that the Pirates have finally been vanquished?
We may find out over the next couple of weeks as this Braves squad goes to work against some serious opposition (this includes the Mets, Dodgers, and Red Sox), but until then, we give you this podcast full of the Public Airing of Grievances.
No… it’s not Festivus season, but when a team — and several aspects of the sport we follow the most — come up and slap you across the face, then any time becomes a suitable occasion for the Airing of Grievances.
Then again, maybe we have some ideas that can make this game just a little bit improved… though we’re not holding out breath with the expectation that the Commissioner’s Office is listening!
Atlanta Braves and MLB woes
So bring it on! Here is the podcast: live and in color via the Internet… with colorful language omitted (as always) since this is a family show.

It was great to see a full team effort vs. the Pirates this weekend: they’ll need all of that in the coming days, but it’s a good sign as we head toward the end of May.
