Rick told John he wants the Atlanta Braves starting rotation to be in rhythm for when the Major League Baseball postseason starts.

Rick challenged John as to why the Braves aren’t trying to go for it and catch the Chicago Cubs. John shot back that you know he is a "go for it guy" and is totally on board. John mentioned that the Braves are such a young team that you don’t want to get into to coast mode, but he is OK with sprinkling in players to give the starters a breather for one day.

Neither Rick nor John want the Braves to put in a shell lineup to rest players with so much left to play for including home-field advantage. Rick broke down the starting rotations for the Dodgers, Brewers and Cardinals. Rick talked about how Brian Snitker has the possible starting lineup set for the postseason based on their last few games of the season. ​
