Check out this video posted on Youtube from a Braves fan called: "1993 Atlanta Braves: Re-Live the Moments" It was broadcasted the day the Braves clinched the NL West in 1993. The videos are divided into ten parts but dont seem to be complete. The videos deal mostly with post game interviews of the final win against the Rockies and post Fred McGriff trade highlights where the Braves began their gradual rise to the division lead from ten games back. The video I embeded shows highlights of a heartbreaking Giants loss on September 2nd. What's so interesting about this season is how incredibly good the Giants were but also how the Braves seemed to mirror the 2010 Giants in many ways. The 1993 Braves, like the 2010 Giants, were far back in the division at mid season. They also had an amazing pitching rotation. A then young Steve Avery has been compared to Madison Bumgarner. The midseason trade for McGriff can be compared to Pat Burrell's acquisition. A then young Chipper Jones can be compared to a now young Buster Posey, though Chipper only had four PA that season. Like the 2010 Padres, the 1993 Giants went on a devastating losing streak in September which resulted in them losing the divisional lead. Like the 2010 Giants, the NL West was decided on the last day. The 2010 Giants exorcised some demons by the beating the Padres for the NL West crown and beating the Braves in the NLDS. The Padres were the ones who traded McGriff for what now seems like nothing and the Braves, of course you know the story. I hate that stupid chant. Anyways, listen to what Braves broadcaster Skip Caray has to say when your watching the video. Many of the things he says are eerily similar to what we heard from those covering the Giants this season.
