Atlanta Braves: Breaking Down Each Playoff Scenario for the Braves
Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE
Chipper Jones and the Braves are just a win away from locking up a playoff spot.

With just nine games left for the Atlanta Braves, they are almost assured of a playoff spot with a magic number of just one game. That is great news for fans who suffered through the epic collapse last year.

While the Braves are headed for the playoffs, their destination is a total unknown at this point. Although unlikely, the team still has a chance to overtake the Washington Nationals for the NL East and the ability to bypass the wild-card play-in game.

However, it is more likely that the Braves will be one of the two Wild Cards in the National League. Considering the seeding for the division winners is totally up in the air and there is a battle going on for the other wild-card berth, there are a bunch of possible playoff scenarios.

This article will take a look at each of those scenarios for the Braves in both the wild-card round and in the divisional series.
