Freddie Freeman’s dominance at the Dodgers is bittersweet for Braves fans
Freddie Freeman’s success with the Los Angeles Dodgers this season is bittersweet for the Atlanta Braves fans who still cheer for him.
The biggest divorce in Major League Baseball last winter was between Freddie Freeman and the Atlanta Braves. He ended up with the Los Angeles Dodgers where he may have a slightly better chance of winning back-to-back World Series rings.
Regardless of the ultimate outcome of where the two clubs end up, his dominance of Hollywood this year is definitely bittersweet for Braves fans.
How good was Freeman? FOX Sports’ Rowan Kavner did the math and Freeman was able to stay unbeaten in his next 125 at-bats and still have a better-than-league batting average.
Freddie Freeman is having a great year for the Dodgers, and it’s an odd feeling for Braves fans
The split between Freeman and the Braves wasn’t bad. We saw how much he loved playing in Atlanta when he returned there with the Dodgers earlier this season. Freeman loved his teammates, the coaches, and most importantly, the fans. It stands to reason that many who cheer for the Braves also routinely check to see how the Dodgers first baseman is doing.
Freeman was on a different level with the Dodgers this year. After Sunday’s game, he now hits .325 on the season. Being in a lineup with other stars definitely helps. As good as many of his Braves teams have been, none compare to the Dodgers this year.
How exactly should Braves fans who still have a Freeman jersey in their closet think about it? It’s like your ex, who you ended things with, amicably finds a new partner and gets his dream job.
It’s okay for Braves fans to quietly cheer for Freeman now. When the Dodgers and Braves face off in the postseason, the real debate will rage.
Braves fans cheering on Freddie Freeman in October? Just a few months ago, no one could have imagined this.
