Braves ace Kris Medlen a quirk in progress

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

“You keep reminding me of it in the clubhouse,” Medlen shot back, and laughed.

Two or three weeks ago, Gonzalez and his coaching staff kicked around possible starters for the wild-card game. Medlen and Hudson were the choices. The unexpected ace was the answer. The only downside to Medlen’s Friday outing for the Braves is, with a win, he will only be available to pitch once in the Division Series.

“I don’t think Medlen’s going to step on the rubber [Friday] and go, ‘Wow, I’m pitching Game 7,’” Gonzalez said. “He’s going to be the same guy.”

If that happens, the Braves‘ season will continue. Same for Medlen’s applause.
