Having returned to the MLB Playoffs for the first time in 12 years, the Phightins knocked the St. Louis Cardinals in two straight in the Wild Card Series. After having taken over for Joe Girardi who was fired mid-season, Rob Thomson now has a chance to guide the franchise to only their third World Series title since 1883.
The Braves won the NL East for the fifth year in a row with a 101-61 record. The defending World Series champs will be favored in the series, with stars such as Austin Riley and Max Fried to help lead them back through the postseason again.
