I'm obviously biased, but after the umps took away Bobby Cox's opportunity to go out on top, so I would love to see Chipper (Bobby's last draft pick as GM) go out on top. The thing that separates for me in the playoffs are the bullpens. Last year, the Cardinals entire bullpen seemed to be clicking as they entered the playoffs along with their rotation going fairly deep into games, even if they weren't throwing shutouts each game. The Braves 4 playoff starters (Medlen, Hudson, Minor, Maholm) are all getting deep into games, the bullpen is going very well, and they're putting Tommy Hanson into the bullpen as a strong arm that could go more than an inning if needed.
