Admin Posted July 6, 2005 Share Posted July 6, 2005 I know alot of people will call me overly hopeful but here it is: Disappointing season so far. Hopefully we can turn it around, we have many many many games with the the rest of the NL East to go...32 games to be exact, 17 away and 15 at home. That includes 16 games against the Braves and Nats, if we can go say...12-4 in those games, and play above .500 in the other 16 in division games, we should be good to go. I'd be happy to see us go 22-10 or 24-8 against the divsion the rest or the way, but we would need to keep Burnett and get a healthy Beckett back as quick as possible to even have a chance. 4 @ Phi 3 VS Was 3 VS NYM 4 @ Was 3 @ Phi 3 VS Phi 3 @ NYM 3 @ Atl 3 VS Was 3 VS Atl And on a side note, the rest of the season's out of division schedule looks like this: 3 VS ChC 3 @ Ari 3 @ SF 3 VS Pit 4 @ Stl 3 @ Cin 3 VS Ari 3 VS SF 3 VS SD 4 VS LA 3 @ Mil 3 @ ChC 3 VS Stl 4 @ HOU 2 VS Col? 47 out of division games. And not a terribly difficult schedule either after the break. We could easily win at least 30 of those games, if not more, if we come out after the ASB with a fire lit under our ass. The 3 against Chicago is our last series before the ASB, so after that we have 76 games. My guess, which is hopeful, is that we will go 54-21 after the break, and I predict a 2-1 series win agasint the Cubs and a split with the Brewers, putting us at 46-40 going into the break, with 76 games left to play. My prediction is we will come out fresh and rested after the ASB and go 21-11 in the division the rest of the way, and 30-14 in out of division games, putting us at 51-25 after the break, 97-65 overall. That is not out of reach by any means. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
