Happy for Freddie! Beloved in Atlanta. He's gonna look good in a Red Sox uniform next year.

I loathe both of these franchises, but the way this is going is the least of all evils for me: I'm treated to Astros fans crying in their rally towels, and don't have to endure the war cries and chops of Braves fans. But the best part is that this series will be over and I won't have to listen to Smoltz until next fall. "What I mean by that..."

Excellent summary.

There's a lot of wisdom in this.

Best comment of the WS

Just a ludicrous amount of noise ( music and sound effects) in this Astros game production.

Nothing against Matzek or the other relievers, but I kind of hope the Astros put up a 4 or 5 spot here.

I'm rooting for the Braves to end it here, but didn't Dusty pull Russ Ortiz early in Game 6 of the 2002 WS only to have it bite him on the ass? I guess it would be karmic justice if the Braves blew this game.
Screw that noise, too

Got a chance to wear the '95 Braves World Series ring. Back then I thought it was pretty incredible; nowadays you can't even wear those rings they're so damn big.

How do they outdo the Dodgers bling from last season?

John Smoltz really lights up when he gets to talk about John Smoltz.
