I agree. As long as their respective divisions stay somewhat close standings wise, those two team have a chance.


Our SP is the worst I've seen in a while, back to (I think) 2005 or 2006 when we had guys like Shawn Chacon and (10-0) Aaron Small in the rotation. Those were the days of Randy Douchebag Johnson, Hey Wang, Kevin Brown, Jarrett Wright and Carl Pavano. We still made the playoffs because they got LUCKY. I don't like this team.

I'm reading Philly is worried about Halladay. I'm not following closely. What's the story there?

Nova, Hughes, and Kuroda have pitched their balls off the last month and a half.  Nova and Hughes dominated their last starts against Chicago.  They have 3 starters with 9 wins.  It's not that bad.


What a difference a month makes!


I know, it's amazing the turnaround they have had with their SP. They're going deep into games, they've saved the bullpen a ton from getting worn out, even with 2 starters down.

Nova is just a flat-out winner, always has been.  You can say he gets lucky and gets good run support, but there's something to be said for being able to win 2-1 or 9-8.  He just does what it takes to win.

Just ask Jack Morris.
