Atlanta, The Braves Are Just Trying To Make The Playoffs In The Most Dramatic Way Possible

It's clearly in their nature.

Talking Chop attempts to count down the most thrilling moments from this season. 77 comments in, I still don't think they've listed all the walkoff wins and ninth-inning comebacks.

Your Atlanta Braves don't believe in winning unless its by the slimmest of margins. Hence, they'll continue to drag their playoff hunt on as long as they possibly can. This is all for your benefit.

These boys couldn't even go to the All Star Game without making the ninth inning worth watching for the first time in forever. What ever made you think they'd wrap up their postseason plans before this weekend? That's really not their style.

There was some study that showed sports victories are only really satisfying when they're close and surprising. Let these Braves satisfy you, Atlanta. If they happen to lose today, it's for your own good.

Today is Bobby Cox day. Tomorrow is playoff day. Use just about any game from this year as a synecdoche for the season itself. Tomorrow's ninth inning might be worth watching, if we know these Braves.
