Finishing Strong


Recommended Posts

Hopefully we can do so this month. Of all the games remaining, only one series is against a team that is not currently below 500. First 2 game sets with the Pirates and the Braves (hopefully with Chipper still out of the lineup or at least not at 100%), then the Brewers and then the Dodgers. And man, after the last couple of years I would like to take the season series from the Dodgers. Anyway, I think our odds are still pretty good at keeping pace through the end of the month. What say all of you?

i reckon it is crucial we take both games against the pirates

 

if we do so i can see a split series against the braves and a 2-1 lost series against the brewers resulting in a 4-3 road trip, which i see as very respectable

 

one major factor which works in our favour is the absence of smoltz, hudson and jurrjens when we visit the braves (bennett and james pitching) which should hopefully give us plenty of runs, and in turn boost the confidence and ease the pressure on miller and hopper.

 

regarding the 2 games against the dodgers at home to finish he month (game 3 on may 1st, wow its nearly may already!) i see a 1-1 spilt with the series finale determining the winner (however i am unsure on the pitching match ups so my opinions may change on the dodger games).

 

taking this into account we would finish the month at 16-11.

 

I LIKE :)
