The Atlanta Braves magic number to clinch their second-consecutive National League East title is down to three. And they can clinch as early as Wednesday.

With the playoffs approaching, which Braves threesome do you trust most?

  • Starting pitching: Dallas Keuchel, Mike Soroka, Mike Foltynewicz
  • Bullpen: Chris Martin, Shane Greene, Mark Melancon
  • Outfield: Ronald Acuna Jr., Nick Markakis, Matt Joyce

"Here's my thing with the three pitchers, I trust them, but don't trust them." Randy McMichael said about the starting rotation. "They're good, but I don't trust them."

Andy Bunker agreed that the starting rotation would be the group he's most concerned with, especially when it comes to a potential matchup with the Dodgers (that we've been seemingly talking about since June.

"We've been looking at those guys and sort of measuring ourselves up against those guys for a lot of the season," Andy said. 

"The place where the Braves come up short has been the same throughout the entire season. It's that top end of the starting rotation and whether or not you think those guys, in a seven game series, are going to be able to do enough from a starting pitching perspective to beat the Dodgers in a series."
