Don’t look now, but the Atlanta Braves are on a roll. The team has won nine out of 10, and currently sit 5.5 games out of the wild card.
This is the same team that went 3-20 leading up to the all-star break.
So here’s my question: if the Braves find themselves within a game or so of the wild card by the end of the month, do they suddenly become buyers instead of sellers? And if the Braves are buying, and their most obvious need is pitching, does Schuerholz trade for Greg Maddox? Does he even have a choice?
