Nervous as shit right now. About 1,000x more nervous than I would be if this was game one of a best of five.

A part of me feels like Medlen has to come back down to earth at some point and it'll probably end up being today. And the Braves offense hasn't been that spectacular the last month or so, so if Medlen does "come back to earth" and gives up 3-4 runs, I'm not sure we can score enough to win.

Also, until they swept the Nationals in September, the Braves had been pretty awful against +.500 teams. Even if they win this game, I don't see them beating the Nationals.

And one damn game...anything can happen, especially in baseball. A 162 game 94 win season comes down to one f***ing game.

I agree, I just wish if they were going to add this new Wildcard round with two wildcard teams, they'd make it a best-of-three or something.

Not gonna lie, that timeout granted to Ross when he swung and missed for strike three was pretty questionable. Made 'em pay with a two run homer, but if the Braves win by 1-2 runs that'll be pretty controversial, and probably rightfully so.

Chipper sails a throw into RF on what should've been a routine double-play; a play he makes 9 times out of 10, and now we're down 3-2. F**k.

Didn't bail on the game or my team. Just had to leave to be somewhere by 6:30. Three errors and we've given them six runs on three hits. Can't do that in the playoffs, especially in this one game playoff format. It's like 2010 all over again but our defense actually sucked that year.

Had about as good of a regular season I expected, just sucks it came down to a one game playoff against a team we finished six games ahead of. If they're going to go to this format permanently it should be best-of-three. Best defense in the NL all season long (FLD% wise) and that's what is going to cost them the season.

And yes, right now I'm bitter and I have little faith in our pitiful offense coming back and winning.

But I don't like seeing a team finishing 6 wins over another team get eliminated by them in 1 game
