The Atlanta Braves have clinched the NL East and will be facing the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Division Series.

With five games left in the regular season, Brian Snitker and the Braves front office have some decisions to make. Most notably... how they will set up their postseason rotation.

It is assumed that Dallas Keuchel and Mike Soroka will pitch in Games 1 and 2 in some order. But there is some real discussion about who the Game 3 starter should be.

"I like Max Fried and I like the fact that he pitched a few games with ice water in his veins, had the mentality I like for my pitchers to have," explains Hugh Douglas. "I think right now if I was going with the hot hand I would go Folty. I'm a big Max Fried fan. But as long as I've been waiting for him to show me, last outing, 8 innings, I need that."
