Rick and John broke down the recently released the Atlanta Braves NLDS postseason roster and Dansby Swanson was not on it but Sean Newcomb is.

Rick told John the Braves have to play small ball if they have a shot at winning this series against the Dodgers. Rick said they have to capitalize on every base runner they get. John told Rick it’s a must for the Braves to win one game in L.A. and he thinks Thursday is their best chance to that.

Rick told John the Braves need to have a great deal of patience in the clubhouse and in the dugout, but the fans need to be patient as well. Rick mentioned that Clayton Kershaw needs to be human against the Braves for them to have a chance against him in this series. Rick told John he needs a win from the Braves so he can go see a game at Suntrust Park Monday night.

Mark Owens reassured Rick that the Dodgers travel really well and considers them one of the best traveling fans bases in the league. ​
