Strider of the Braves insists that it’s either the World Series victory or nothing for the team, which he considers the most skilled in baseball.

Atlanta Braves standout pitcher, Spencer Strider, believes that anything short of clinching the World Series title in 2024 would be considered a letdown for the team. In a statement on Saturday reported by Bally Sports, Strider emphasized the high expectations for the organization, asserting, “There should be no acceptance of anything less than winning a World Series in this organization.” He expressed confidence in the Braves, labeling them as the most talented team in baseball, and emphasized the need to set ambitious goals.

The Braves, despite leading the league with 104 regular-season wins in 2023 and excelling in various offensive categories, have faced playoff setbacks, exiting in consecutive NLDS matchups against the Philadelphia Phillies since their 2021 World Series triumph.

Strider, who had an impressive 2023 season, securing 20 wins and 281 strikeouts with a 3.86 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over 186 2/3 innings, is poised to lead a formidable Braves rotation. The pitching staff includes other seasoned talents like Max Fried, Charlie Morton, Chris Sale, and Bryce Elder. The collective aim is to go beyond previous achievements and secure a coveted World Series victory.
