Braves feel good about future despite October flop

By PAUL NEWBERRY

ATLANTA (AP) - For most of the season, the Atlanta Braves were overachievers.

They lost seven players to season-ending injuries. Two key players batted under .200. Even with all that, Atlanta managed to win 96 games and capture its first division since 2005.

But once October arrived, it was the same ol' story.

Another postseason disappointment.

The Braves haven't won a postseason series since 2001, their streak of eight straight losses now the second-longest in baseball history to the Chicago Cubs, who dropped 10 series in a row between 1910 and 1998, according to STATS LLC.

Brian McCann is a free agent and may have played his final game with the Braves. Also, the team must figure out what to do with B.J. Upton and Dan Uggla, who both struggled through miserable seasons.
