[q]Tickets still available for division series

By DARRYL MAXIE
Atlanta Journal-Constitution Staff Writer

BRAVES VS. CUBS
Best-of-5
Game 1: 8:18 p.m. Tuesday, at Atlanta; Fox
Game 2: 7:06 p.m. Wednesday, at Atlanta; ESPN
Game 3: 8:06 p.m.Friday, at Chicago; ESPN
Game 4: Saturday, TBA,
at Chicago
Game 5: Sunday, TBA,
at Atlanta




Home-field advantage might mean something in the National League playoffs, and the Atlanta Braves made sure to get it Sunday.
"We're in good shape going in," Braves manager Bobby Cox said.

By beating Philadelphia to close the regular season, Atlanta ensured that it would have the best record in the National League (101-61).

With a little extra effort, the San Francisco Giants (100-61) could have tied the Braves. But they decided that flying across the country to New York today to make up a blackout-postponed game against the Mets, then flying back to open a playoff series Tuesday against the Florida Marlins, was more trouble than it was worth.

Had the Giants tied the Braves in the standings, they would have won home-field advantage because they beat the Braves in four of six meetings.

The Braves, who open Tuesday against the Chicago Cubs, have reason to believe home field might be worth something. They lost the 1991 World Series to the Twins because four of the seven games were in Minneapolis and the Braves won only the three played in Atlanta.

They won the 1992 National League championship because when Sid Bream slid home with the winning run in Game 7, Pittsburgh didn't have a final at-bat to counter it.

If the Braves reach the World Series, they won't have the home-field edge. That was determined in July's All-Star Game, when the American League won and secured home field as the prize.

Tickets remain available for the NL Division Series. The price range is the same as last year's: from $8 to $45.

If the Braves advance to the National League Championship Series, for which tickets are on sale, prices will range from $30 to $60.

Baseball would LOVE a Sox/Cubs series, probably get the highest ratings ever for a WS. Last thing they want is a Yanks/Braves series, the whole country minus NYC/ATL would just tune it out.

Could not agree with you more, Mr. Brau1...sox/cubs could be one of the biggest world series EVER. that would be crazy, although unlikely.

Wankee fans are the least likable or respectable in all of sports.
They have no perspective because they get a WS win every 4 years or so, they're the easiest team to root for in all of sports.

Remember that kid up the street from you when you we're growing up? He always got everything he wanted for his B-day or Xmas- new bike, trainsets, videogames, ALL the Legos, then he'd come to your house and rag on your toys. When he was 16 he got a BRAND NEW CAR, while you drove an '83 Buick Skylark w/ 123,754 miles on it? Oh, and he'd make fun of it. His rent's paid for his ENTIRE college education including $1000/month spending money, while you worked 2 jobs all year to afford college? Remember how at your 10 year highschool reunion that kid up the street showed up and got jumped by the entire class when he was leaving ; )

Well, that kid up the street is like the Wankee fan, they don't appreciate what they have, and everyone knows it, and hates them for it.
