Postseason play for the Atlanta Braves begins next Thursday, October 3. However, their NLDS opponent, either the St. Louis Cardinals or Milwaukee Brewers, has yet to be determined.

Another thing that remains undetermined for the Braves is their playoff starting rotation. 

"I think Dallas Keuchel is going to be your Game 1 starter," Caray said.

"He's been there. He's won a Cy Young. He's pitched in playoffs. He's pitched in the World Series before. Big moments are what this guy's built for."

When it comes to who will pitch Game 2, Caray said that's a coin flip. He's much more confident when it comes to who he thinks pitches Game 3.

"My guess is Mike Soroka would start Game 3 on the road," Caray continued. He noted Soroka's numbers, 7-1 on the road with a good ERA in those games.

Caray's guess when it comes to who pitches Game 2 may come as a surprise.

"Keuchel, one. I'm guessing (Max) Fried, two. Soroka, three and (Mike) Foltynewicz, four. But that's just a guess, and whatever answers the Braves have, they're keeping close to the vest. Quite obviously, they're not going to tell schlubs like me until I need to know."
