Rick and John played a cut from Brian Snitker on how the Braves have the ‘it’ factor and you just can’t explain it. Rick talked about the clincher on Saturday for the Braves with Folty on the mound for 7 innings and Vizcaino coming in to finish.

John told Rick there is nothing like playoff baseball and playing the same team back to back and being able to learn the opposing team tendencies. John agreed with Rick that he would have left Folty in the game. John said in the playoffs he wants to let his pitchers go as far as they can go. Rick hopes Brian Snitker understand postseason pitching compared to regular season pitching and changes how he handles he rotation.

Rick and John both want home field advantage against the Dodgers but that will be up to the Braves to accomplish and hope the Dodgers cooperate. Rick mentioned the Braves being 20 games over .500 and 9 games up in their division.
