"Whatever happens over these next few weeks, though, the Braves’ season won’t be what it could have been. The baseball season, our season, won’t be what it could have been. Ronald Acuña Jr.’s torn ACL casts a shadow over the 2021 campaign. Now, we sit back and hope the player who once talked about a 50/50 season can return from a devastating injury with his complete game intact."
