antidisestablishmentarianism: One a day for the rest of the month?Brewers, 3.0 games back.
Slow To Return: Why not just let EVERYONE into the post season?
Slow To Return: Looks like adding the 2nd wild card had the desired effect...Why not just let EVERYONE into the post season?
sephjnr: The Cards are going to better blow it, much as I don't want them to.
roc6783: //Don't go all bandwagoner on me either, 2 weeks ago no one thought they had a shot of finishing above .500, now coolstandings.com is giving them a 7% chance to make the playoffs. This may kill me.
rufus-t-firefly: Don't look now,OK./football season
dletter: A bit dramatic there.... it is letting more teams have a chance later in the season to still sell tickets saying they are still "in the race".
dletter: My guess is even the 2nd WC team to make it will half the time have a better record than one of the division champs.
BKITU: And the Padres are inexplicably only 2 behind the D-bags and just swept the Cardinals. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.Still no hope for this season, but this "upward trend" thing is encouraging.
jackiepaper: [upload.wikimedia.org image 300x355] Meanwhile are 7 games up, and the Doyers are 6-11 since the "big" trade.
red5ish: This season we get two wild card teams.Next season's schedule has inter-league games "every day" and the Astros will be in the AL.What's next?
downstairs: They have to leapfrog so many teams, its just not going to happen. If someone were 8 games out of their division, in 2nd place... I could see an epic run and a collapse by the 1st place team. That happens. But if you're 3 out, but have to jump 3-4 other teams... many of whom play each other... that's near impossible. This is something people forget when just looking at the number.

This is something people forget when just looking at the number.1. Shut your whore mouth. I am all in and this train is rolling down the track, get on or get flattened, biatch tits.2. The Brewers play the Pirates 3 games and are only a half game back from them.3. The Dodgers and the Cards play 4 against each other. A split means 2 losses for each team and no ground gained.4. The Brewers basically need to sweep the Pirates and have the Dodgers and Cards split or Dodgers take 3 of 4 and they are 2 out with 15 to play.5. GODDAMITSOMUCH!!! WHY WHY WHY AM I DOING THIS TO MYSELF????!?!?!?!?///FML
machoprogrammer: Also need to sweep or take 2 of 3 from the Pirates
neuroflare: I stopped watching when I determined the season was over./hint: it was after losing to the Padres a million times
slykens1: machoprogrammer: Also need to sweep or take 2 of 3 from the PiratesBook it, done. The Bucs gave up weeks ago.Being a fan of Pittsburgh teams it's hard to work up excitement over 20 losing seasons. I don't need Super Bowls and Stanley Cups every year but competing once in a while would be nice.
