Before he was born the Braves wheeled off a decade and a half Division Championships... now he has to pay the piper I suppose.
When I was approximately his age my Phillies were losing 23 straight games -- which I personally attended many of them -- and they were perpetual cellar dwellers... and then they looked to be good and blew a 7 1/2 game lead IIRC in the lst month (freak you, Chico Ruiz)... And before anyone asks; NO, I didn't cry I just biatched and kept coming back for more losing.
