Post-Frank Wren Era game thread

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Aaron Harang Day Braves fans! Once Upton a time this looked like a big series. The Braves would be hosting four games against the Pirates as the two teams battled for the final wild card spot in the National League. Then September came and the Braves either collectively hit a run of awful form or they general quit on Fredi Gonzalez. Either way Atlanta has only won four games this month and they have the worst record in baseball since the first day of September. Yesterday's loss to the Mets eliminated the Braves from playoff contention, Frank Wren was fired this morning and this series now means nothing. Life comes at you fast.

But since you are all hopelessly addicted to chasing the dragon of the Atlanta Braves not letting you down one day please join us and discuss everything going on. Share your thoughts on the season, the firing of Frank Wren, the keeping of Fredi Gonzalez and maybe even comment on whats going on in this game? I guess? If you have nothing better to do I suppose.
