Rick and John are excited about the start of the NLDS and bring some emotion to the conversation. John is immediately worried about LA because they have a better slugging percentage, have more home runs, and a better team ERA. However, the Dodgers hit the ball a lot, so the Braves need to be ready for a big ground game.

Rick is not excited about the Dodgers' rotation regardless of who gets the start and continues that just "Chopping Wood" will not get it done for the Braves because the Dodgers are a great team.

Rick knows the national pundits and media don't like the Braves and calls the game David versus Golliath. Rick needs the entire team to be special and John knows Freddie Freeman is in the MVP talk, but he can't be hitting .220 in the NLDS.

They preview Thursday's game and Rick thinks you must win the first game of the series because the Dodgers are arrogant its a chance to catch LA overlooking the Braves.
