With their mind on the postseason, the Atlanta Braves are shuffling things in their rotation.
#Braves will align rotation so that Medlen on pace to start Wild Card game, Hudson game 1 of division series.— David O'Brien (@ajcbraves) September 22, 2012
The Braves are entrenched as the first Wild Card in the National League, and have a six-game lead over the second Wild Card, the St. Louis Cardinals. The Braves have won each of Kris Medlen's past 21 starts, so it makes sense why he would be the choice for the one-game playoff. Former Braves pitcher of note John Smoltz, on the other hand, thinks the Braves should save both Medlen and Tim Hudson for the Divisional Series and go with someone else in the Wild Card game.
