Kris Medlen

By: John Foley

It’s time for the playoffs and your Atlanta Braves (96-66) will be facing the Dodgers (92-70) starting Thursday night at Turner Field in a best of five series. The Braves beat the Dodgers 5 games to 7 earlier in the season and I for one expect them to do the same. More than likely Thursday night we will see RHP Kris Medlen (15-12,3.21) squaring off against LHP Clayton Kershaw (16-9,1.83). The Braves aren’t getting very much love from the national media despite having the Major’s best bullpen and 5 hitters with 20+ home runs. The atmosphere at the Ted will be great on Thursday and there is a lot of buzz in the air about this Braves team. #fearthechop.
