It helps that we played all games (except 1) against the NL Central...so we must keep this in perspective.
The important thing is the players appear to be loose and having fun while doing it.
Furcal has exceeded my Expectations for what was expected of him in the early going
We may have played most of our games against the NL Central, but at least two of those teams (Milwaukee and Cincinnati) were supposed to be good and one (Pittsburgh) was supposed to be getting better.
The only two really bad teams in the division are the Cubs and Astros - and we're only 3-3 against the Cubs and haven't even yet played the Astros. But we're 4-2 against Milwaukee, 4-2 against Cincinnati, and 3-1 (so far) against the Pirates - so, weirdly enough, we're 11-5 against the "good" teams in the NL Central and 3-3 against the "bad" teams. Plus 1-0 against Miami.
Perhaps what's happening is we're playing to the level of the competition. If we don't do well against Houston and then go out and beat Arizona and Atlanta, we'll know better, I suppose.
