Well, here we stand for the third year in a row with the playoffs calling our names. In 2003 we had to yell at October for her to let us in, but eventually we caught her attention and the rest is history. October enjoyed the time with us so much that she wanted us back, and called at us. We woke up around this time and charged hard until her evil aunt, Mother Nature, had other ideas. This year we're getting called again, but we're playing hard to get.

 

Let's drop the games and make a run. From now on, here is where nightly updates will be given on our quest to visit October once again. Discussion on the hunt (and only the hunt) is welcome here as well.

 

NL East:

53-40, --- back

53-41, .5 back

48-45, 5.0 back

46-46, 6.5 out

45-46, 7.0 out

 

Wild Card:

53-41, --- back

48-45, 4.5 back

47-45, 5.0 back

46-46, 6.0 out

45-46, 6.5 out

(cut off line for Wild Card is 10 games out or more)

Were going to have to stop playing s***ty baseball and step it up, because now the braves have Chipper back and there going to be winning games.

I'm not going to say we're out of it.

 

But we face a huge challenge.

 

The taste of the playoffs will be very sweet after what we've done through this year. :mischief

10 games against the Nationals (6 at home)

6 games against the Mets (3 at home)

6 games against the Phillies (3 at home)

and 6 games against the Braves with the final three ending the season at home.

 

Still tons of opportunity to make up ground, we just can't afford to lose any more...

The way your playing says your done, but the standings don't...so yanevaknow.

There have been plenty of teams in baseball history that floundered and looked out of it, but then ended up coming back and doing big things...hopefully the Fish can pull it off...

With 71 games left in 2003, the Marlins went 44-27 in their last 71 games, including a 9-1 run in late July, and a 1-8 skid in late-August. I think this year's team will need to go 46-25 at least, probably 47-24. Atlanta needs to go 39-30. I'm assuming the Nats wilt in the summer. I see it as a race between us and the Braves. One or the other will do it, by beating up on the other NL East teams. It's certainly doable. We have the team, at least we did when I started this post. If it happens let's remember that August swoon if it reoccurs, and enjoy the ride from here on in. Good luck!
