pretty brutal stretch coming up

Post by go birds »

3 @ COL (60-84)
3 vs MIL (74-68)
3 vs WAS (79-63)
4 @ CHI (76-66)
3 @ ARI (not a team to sleep on) (75-68)

and then finish off the season with 3 vs CHI

There's not a single matchup i feel comfortable about.

At least september will be fun for the first time in awhile

If we finish 10-9 over our last 19, the Cubs will have to go 15-5 to tie and 16-4 to overtake us. Their schedule is easier, but they're also down Baez and have not had a cakewalk playing the Reds or Pirates this year.

Anything's possible, but I like our odds. Widening the gap during the Rockies series would be a great start.

Because they went 12-15 in September and missed the postseason by 2.5 games because of their poor play?

10-9 is a pretty solid expectation, honestly.

Some people think the Diamondbacks are winning the WC over the Cubs.

The way I like to look at it is....those teams would not feel comfortable facing the Cardinals either.
