After another impressive outing and a victory for Max Friend, John Fricke and Hugh Douglas speak about him as possibly the next-big-thing for the Braves rotation. Hugh Douglas focuses on something he saw last night that's sold him on Fried.

"The umpire was a little bit stingy, he was squeezing him a little bit, you could tell he was a little bit frustrated early on," Hugh noticed, "but he settled down and he still gave you 6.1 innings. Still able to ge tthe win, 3-0 on the season, and hands down the best pitcher we have right now"

Hugh and John also discuss how the pitching rotation of the future is still to be set as we find out which prospects move ahead of the others. Hugh continues the Fried praise.

"Who's going to step up? So far it's been Max Fried. I like watching him pitch because I like to see the movement. Yesterday when he was getting squeezed like that, to settle down and do what he did, that was pretty impressive"
