The doubleheader in Colorado are the two most important of the upcoming games because everyone else of any importance in the wildcard has the day off.

 

Assuming the Cincy series goes well, sweeping in Colorado puts us back in the thick of things as we get back to parity (in games played) with the other teams in the hunt.

Sorry to be bursting everybody's bubble but:

- All but TWO non-NL East teams are at or below .500. And with most games in August taking place out of division, that means the Braves, Nationals, Mets, and Phillies will also be playing a lot of sub-.500 teams.

- We get to face these teams in our division throughout September while the Astros get to beat up on the dreds of their division. In fact, their schedule this month doesn't look that hard either.

 

The Marlins need to keep winning and they should be able to do so against the teams they're facing. But so should the people whom they need to lose. Anyway, Cinci and Colorado are a start and it would be really nice to take four of these five.

I'll be quite happy going 3-2 over the next 5 away games. These are still away games, and we don't have AJ going in any of them, and Beckett's start in Colorado is kind of a wasted start for him, as his off speed stull will not be as effective a mile high. Our 5 starters are Vargas, Willis, Moeller, Beckett, and Valdez. Plus we're still a little dinged up. I'm concerned about the Colorado DH. On paper it looks like juicy pickings for us, but it's a trap situation.

The time to really make our move is the 13 game homestand coming up against the weak NL West. 10-3 or better is very possible, and needed. Hopefully we'll be back to full health, and our pitching sets up nice, with 5 out of the 13 games started by AJ or Beckett.
