The Braves are going to win the NL East. It's only a matter of time before they officially clinch. As of Wednesday morning the magic number is at three.

That is either 3 Braves wins, 3 Nationals losses, or any combination of those. It's going to happen, the only question is when.

The Braves are also focused on a few other notable events this season and John Fricke and Hugh Douglas discuss which they're most interested in happening for the Braves.

They have a shot at 100 wins, Ronald Acuna Jr. has a chance for a historic 40/40 season, they could clinch at home against the Phillies, and they're awaiting the return of Ender Inciarte.

"For him to be that close, it has to be sticking in his head, I would rather be a part of that," says Hugh. "100 wins is nice, but doing 40/40 is something where history is concerned"

"Clinching at home against the Phillies is something I would like to see them do," says Fricke. "It would be kinda cool to celebrate on the field against the Phillies. It's a full-circle moment after that first three-game set."
