Who should get the nod as the Braves 4th postseason pitcher? (in b4 they won't need 4)

Recently for Maholm:

6.2 0 ER tonight
6.2 2 ER on 4 hits Sept 18th
4.1 6 ER (8 R) on 9 hits 2 BB Sept 12th
5.1 0 ER Sept 7th
2.0 7 ER on 6 hits 3 BB Sept. 2nd


Recently for Hanson:

5.1 5 ER Sept. 21
5.0 2 ER (5 R) Sept 15
5.2 2 ER Sept 9th
5.2 2 ER Sept 4
4.2 3 ER (4 R) on 8 hits and 2 BB Aug 29


Who do you go with? I don't even know any more. Hanson is consistently bad, but not getting blown out bad. Maholm is sometimes good, sometimes bad, but when he's bad he's real bad.

Maholm.

Would rather see them throw Chief Knockahomer over Hanson.

I feel like the odds of us winning the game are greater with Maholm. Sure if it's a bad day it's a guaranteed loss. But with Hanson I feel like we're more likely to lose all of his starts even though it's not a total blowout. At least Maholm gives us either a win or a loss. It's kind of like a sure thing with him.

With Hanson we're stuck hoping our offense comes to play and if it doesn't (which is most of the time) we lose. So I'm leaning towards Maholm too.

Wild Card only one game brah. Might as well not put either on postseason roster

Postseason roster for NLDS isn't actually submitted until after that game technically. And even then the rosters are allowed to change each series.

You new to the postseason or something?
