The Braves are 3 games out in the NL Wild Card race

With the big win against the Marlins last night, the Braves move to within 3 games of the National League Wild Card lead with little over a month left to play. I wrote yesterday about the Braves remaining schedule being a favorable one, and today we see if Tim Hudson will be able to help out down the stretch. Can the Braves overtake the teams in front of them, and hold off potentially good teams in back of them to win the Wild Card? That's the question in today's poll, vote below.
