It doesn't matter how far ahead the Braves get in the National League wild card, they'll still need to battle to make the Divisional Series.
Atlanta has won seven of their last 10 games and are seven games up on the Cardinals for the NL wild card lead. Under the new wild card playoff system, they'll still need to play a one-game playoff with the second-place team.
This September is drastically different for the Braves, who collapsed around this time last year, just like some other team we're very familiar with.
