Braves rotation is just a little below average I would say. And yes, this would be a shitty playoff rotation. The Braves beat-writer mentioned that Smoltz could possibly start in the playoffs and just pitch til his arm falls off--Smoltz is the type of guy who would do something like this too.

Then your right, who cares.
Atlanta has one ace (who has been off and on this season...did have a spectacular outing today v CIN) and then they are counting on Jurijens, a young unpredictable pitcher, to keep it up. PHIL rotation has a lot more stability, especially with Hamels and Myers. Those two along far outweigh the Braves shotty rotation. They need Smoltz as a starter.
