The Philadelphia Phillies signed big free agent Bryce Harper to a monster 13-year, $330 million deal on Thursday. With their stacked roster, the Midday Show with Rick and John debate whether or not the Atlanta Braves will make the post season this year.

"The Phillies are a legit in the Braves way to win this division, and the Nationals too," Rick said. "I do not think the Braves are winning this division, and I've thought that for awhile.

"I think they are going to make the playoffs," John said. "I still think they are an 87/88-win team. They may not win the division but I think they're going to be right there in the playoff mix."

Rick disagrees saying the Mets, Nationals and Phillies have all made their teams better in the offseason while the Braves have done nothing to improve their roster.

"The National League East is 100 percent turned inside-out from last year," Rick said. "We looked around last year and like 'these teams suck; we've got this division on lock.' Not anymore."
