If they didn't have so many games against each other I would agree with him, but 7 games out of 20 left is a lot to make a huge difference in the outcome of the season.

You don't know how depressing it is to be a Pirates fan right now. If they don't finish over .500 this season I will seriously be just plain old pissed off.

72-70 on a 6 game losing streak.

Orioles have now solidified a winning season for the first time in 14 years!

but **** just a winning season, I want the AL East!

Huge sweep this week, especially with this tough 3 game set in Oakland coming up.

How many years or decades has been since they were over .500?

If there's one bright spot from this season: At least Hague proved he sucks, and the pirates won't waste their time with him again.

about to be 7 at this point it's better loosing for a better draft position you're not catching up to the braves for the wild card.

Nope, it's more important to have a winning season, we haven't had one since 1992.

There's two wildcard spots this year. They're 9 games back of Atlanta but just 3 games back of the Cardinals for the second wildcard spot. There's absolutely no difference between either wildcard spot. Even if the Braves finish something like 12 games ahead of the second wildcard team, they still have to play a one game playoff to get into the actual playoffs.


And what tha f**k? The Phillies are only 3 games out of the second wildcard spot now? When did that happen?

I can't believe Houston is moving to the AL next year.

The Phils will make it look at their horses - halladay, Lee, Hamels, Papelbon, Kendrick dare I say.

If utley and Howard were healthy that's a scary team again.

Phillies and Braves wont make it. Losing to Astros and Mets have probably killed them.

The f*ck are you talking about? The Braves are 7 games up in the wildcard standings. I know they choked last year with a similar sized lead with this many games to go, but come on.

Besides, one loss to a really bad team doesn't mean anything. It's baseball.
