Friends, Atlantans, Braves Journalers, lend me your ears.
I come not to bury the Braves, but to praise them.
The errors the defense commits live in the box scores;
the good is oft overlooked with their ohfers.
So let it be with last night. The noble Twitter
Hath told you their plans were not ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath the Braves answered it.
Here, under leave of Ryan C and the rest
(For Ryan is an honorable man;
So are we all, all honorable fans),
Come I to write the postgame recap.
This is my team, faithful and good to me,
But Twitter says they were not ambitious,
And Tweeters are honorable men.
They hath brought a World Championship home to Atlanta,
Whose flag doth fly forever.
Did this not seem ambitious?
When Freeman left, Anthopoulos wept;
Ambition need not be made of sterner stuff.
Yet Twitter says they were not ambitious,
And Tweeters are honorable men.
You all did see that in a game thread past
I already posted a Phil Collins video,
Which caused an offensive explosion. Was that not promising?
Yet Twitter says they were not ambitious,
And, sure, Tweeters are honorable men.
I speak not to disprove what Twitter spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all do love them, not without cause.
What cause withholds you, then, to have faith in them?—
Oh judgment, thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason!—Bear with me;
My heart is in the box score there with a 1-0 loss,
And I must pause till it come back to me.

He weeps.
