We are now only 4 losses behind atlanta. Josh Johnson is on his way back in about 2 weeks. And we have 15 of the next 21 games at home. The 6 road games are at kc and at the white sox, both who have losing records. Mike Jacobs could be back at the end of the month as well.

 

I think we have a chance to get right back in the mix.

Actually, as of right now we are 3 1/2 back of Atlanta and 1/2 back of Phillie.

But who's counting.

even better.

 

The only thing better than that is playing the next 3 home games vs Tampa.

To make the playoffs we'll have to win the WC because we're not catching the Mets. I wouldn't worry too much about the Braves and Phillies. I think the WC will probably be one of the NL west teams. The Phillies willl win 85 or so games and the Braves will have to score a ton to win and Chipper will be out several weeks and that's a death blow to that team.

If this road trip has proven nothing else, its how resilient this team (and inconsistent) can be. After being swept by the Mets, they come back to sweep the Cubs and then lose 3 out of 4 to the Brewers only to win 3 out of 4 from the Braves. I think that once JJ gets back and can get back to having a healthy starting five, we should hopefully start seeing more consistent play from this team.

 

 

But yeah, things are looking up.

I don't think we will catch the Mets, but given how many times we play them never say never. I know they have pitched very well so far (at times) but I still don't trust that guys like Sosa are going to continue to get them wins. Also when Pedro gets back who knows how well he will pitch, he could completely implode (and it wouldnt surprise me)

 

Very very unlikely, but not impossible IMO.

I dont even care if we catch the mets. Wild Card is just fine for me.

 

The west teams have good records right now, but they will all be playing eachother.

Too bad we're 12-15 at home, while 18-16 on the road.

Just imagine how much better this team would be with an actual catcher as well.

 

and imagine a sweet hitting centerfielder as well who can be a top of the order catalyst. or hey how about an inexpensive stud top of the rotation guy, say hmmm ... Jake Peavy or Johan Santana or how about BOTH!!!

 

OH mY g@wD DiD u KnwO WE haD JOHAN LOLZ

Olivo got 3 hits the whole road trip, i think 2 of them came in the Brewers series i believe. he continues to be way too agressive and instead of adjusting he is just playing into the hand of the opposition.

 

its one thing if ur giving us quality AB's its another if ur going up there with a mindset of swinging at anything that comes out of the pitchers hand.

 

i rather have Treanor go play everyday for right now, at least u know he will give u a better at bat and very solid Defense behind the plate.

Yea Treanor needs to be seeing more time. Better defence, makes contact, and can DRAW A WALK.

think I mentioned it in the game thread, but he has the lowest on-base % of any player in the entire NL with enough at-bats to qualify for stats. And he's second to lowest in the majors. Granted, batting 7th or 8th you don't need a great on-base %, but we're getting down to the .250 range which is just terrible. He's not hitting the occasional home run either.
