Staff Predictions on the Atlanta Braves NLDS series
Let’s get right back into it with the final picks.
Trent’s NLDS picks-
Another Brewers pick here by the staff.
Trent has the Brew-Crew winning the series in the fifth and final game.
Based on his selection of Corbin Burnes being the MVP, I believe Trent thinks he will keep the Braves bats silent in game 1 and game 5 of the series. Certainly capable of doing that, let’s hope Trent is wrong.
Trent’s X-factor is similar to Jake’s thinking earlier and that is that Josh Hader is maybe the most dominant closer in baseball and has the ability to pitch multiple innings in this series in every game.
Sam’s NLDS picks-
Sam has the Atlanta Braves being victorious in five games.
Also, just like Daniel, Sam has Jorge Soler being the team MVP when all is said and done.
A common theme among everyone’s picks is Josh Hader is someone who the Braves need to keep off the mound at all costs as Sam once again picked him as the X-Factor for the Brewers in this series. He would go on and say that the X-Factor for the Braves in this series is the curveball against the Brewers hitters. He goes more into depth about that in this article here, which you should really read, or read again if previously read.
Fred’s NLDS picks-
Fred picks the Atlanta Braves in five games. That’s all I could muster out of him.
I want to thank all the other writers for providing me with this info, and it’s fair to say this should be a back-and-forth series where either team could wind up victorious.
Let’s all hope that at the end of it, the Atlanta Braves are the ones still standing.
