It isn't a secret that Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker is going to be loyal to his players. Jon Chuckery is convinced that may be the downfall for this team, given Luke Jackson's track record as of late.

Jackson has blown half of his last six saves and it looks like he is going to be the guy when a save opportunity comes about.

Gabe Burns, of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, joined Jon and spoke to Jackson's status as the closer going forward.

"For right now, that seems to be the plan," Burns said.

It seems that the Braves are going to go with Jackson, but Chuckery thinks that that decision could ultimately cost the Braves a division title.
