Unfortunately, losing in the postseason has been a common trend for the franchise over the years. According to Tracy Ringolsby of MLB.com:
Eight consecutive postseason series lost. That's the second-longest streak of postseason failure in history, but while the Chicago Cubs' failure in 10 consecutive postseasons was spread over 88 years (from 1910 through 1998), the Braves have seen eight postseason opportunities go for nothing in the last 13 years.
