i believe we're about 6 out in the division and 5.5 in the wildcard. if we believe we can make the playoffs we might have to consider the wc as a possibility.

 

frankly i dont give a damn how we do it at this point.

It seems to me that it'd be easier to win the division than the Wild Card. I'm glad the Division has been quite mediocre this year and the moves we made seem like this team can be solid.

with 5 teams ahead of us and 5.5 games back, we barely have a legitimate shot at the wild card.

 

just to put things in perspective, this is how the NL looked last year at the trade deadline, after 7/31:

 

NL      W   L    GB      WP      RS      RA
ATL    71  37     -    .657     620     520
SFG    68  40   3.0    .630     514     440
PHI    60  47  10.5    .561     513     419
FLA    59  49  12.0    .546     516     481
HOU    58  50  13.0    .537     530     457
STL    56  52  15.0    .519     605     536
ARI    56  52  15.0    .519     484     445
COL    56  55  16.5    .505     597     587
MON    55  54  16.5    .505     488     503
LAD    54  53  16.5    .505     367     355
CHC    54  53  16.5    .505     485     477
PIT    49  57  21.0    .462     486     516
CIN    49  59  22.0    .454     511     621
NYM    44  64  27.0    .407     446     555
MIL    44  64  27.0    .407     480     580
SDP    42  67  29.5    .385     452     571

we were 1.5 games behind only one team (phils) for the wild card, and we had the 4th best record in the NL.

 

i wish we had a real shot at the WC, but it looks like we should be thinking about our division right now.

I'm with those who say that I don't care how we get in, as long we get to the playoffs... However, realistically, I don't see the Wild Card coming out of the NL East. I think the Braves will slow down and we have to start making our push now....

 

No need to wish the Giants a loss either. That's not nice... :confused

Right now, we are 21-29. we are 10.5 games out of WC ( http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/standings?ty...rder=false&st=2 ). We have 45 games before the all star break left (July 13). If we can climb back to .500, at the current pace of things we will be about 6 games back from first. 27-18 is what we will have to do to get back to .500. If we can do this, I think we may have a shot and perhaps the Marlins are dealing for the playoff run instead of dealing to help someone else's team for the playoff run.

 

Ahh, yes...memories.

 

Ironically, it was our getting swept by the Expos that pushed me over the edge - into foundamentalistic belief that we were good enough to win it all last year. I think that this current team is just as good - no, better - than last year's team. What is good to see is that we struggled pretty early on even with Fudge - but we dont have that luxury now.

 

Just like last year, we have problems with the Expos.

 

I dont think we are going to win the WC this year - that will belong to the Cubs. I am in Chicago and ever since Nomar, that team has woken up. I think we have a better chance of winning the NL East. Either way, we ARE getting into the playoffs. We have the best team in the NL East.

We're all a bunch of pussies...there's still two months left in the season, and a a six game lead can evaporate in a matter of days. So let's sit back, relax, and watch our Marlins go on a tear.

 

 

write it down.....it's only a matter of time...once the team comes together around the new guys, watch out, ATL.

It can? You think all of a sudden we're gonna win 6 games in a row and all the teams infront of us are going to all of a sudden lose 6 games in a row if that is even possible.

498384[/snapback]

In all likelyhood we will have to go 18-8 over the next 30 days to catch up.
