When Folty is on he is straight up nasty and probably our 2nd best pitcher and on some teams he has #1 stuff.   If all of our guys pitch to their best i would say Soroka is the true ace and then  Dall

Here's the silver lining with the last 3 games the Braves have lost, the guys that shouldn't be in the bullpen come October are making themselves known and it should be a pretty easy call.

We basically ruined the Mets shot at the wildcard, the Nats shot at the division, and showed the dodgers who the real team to beat is. Might as well **** in the Phillies cornflakes while we are at it.

Riley has got a lot of work to do this Winter to get his swing back.  He is an effing auto out K machine.  Honestly don’t think he is on post season roster 

No, I wouldn't think he makes it. He would have to turn it on these last 2 weeks. Especially if Markakis comes back and is able to get his timing down. Camargo has earned his NLDS roster spot.

Minter might be the biggest disappointment of the season. The other guys that struggled came back strong but Minter has just been bad all year.

AJ Minter blew it big time against the Colorado Rockies last year which led to that 4 game sweep they did over us. I never trusted him ever since.

While we cut ties with him, I think Winkler's in there as well. And Folty has to be included, even though it's not really a surprise.

The good news is that the list of biggest surprises is long and deep.

They're really going to put challenge to our decade of dominance streak without enough WS to show for it

Especially in a division where none of the other teams have a clue about how to build a team from the ground up like the Dodgers did. That's the scary thing about the Dodgers. They're built on loads of home grown talent. That is exactly what the Braves did when they went on their run, sprinkle in a few veterans here and there and boom, 14 straight division titles. The Dodgers are primed for that and are now halfway there. Wanna know the craziest thing? Before this current playoff run started the Dodgers had never been in the playoffs even 3 straight years and now they're riding high on 7 straight division titles.

Doesnt sound like the Braves are going too big into rest mode if they clinch the East early. Players said they expect to win everyday and Snitker indicated they'll keep pushing within reason. Swanson mentioned it's too difficult to get going again if you slow down. He cited the end of last year when the team went 2-4 after clinching and then got overwhelmed by LA. Players sound like they plan to stay in routine and rythm marching into October.
