I don't know why I keep watching...  But they are now in sole possession of the second wild card.  1/2 game up on Cincy and 1 game up on San Diego.

Braves 4.5 up on Philly.  Brewers up 13.5 on the Cards.

In the NL, SF and LAD are the only two teams to have clinched.

Magic number for the Brewers is 5, and ATL is 15.

The Mets, Phillies and Braves have taken turns at the top this year.  Feels like it's not our turn anymore.  I don't have the warm and fuzzies.

Not since the all star break Sancho.

Vegas said back in May that the division would go down to the Phils and Braves - 50/50 for each - and that the Mets had about a 8-9% chance - this is when the Mets were leading by several games. The amount of research they put into the roster depth of each team and schedule strength as the season progresses to predict these things is bewildering.

All is know is the Cards had their first sweep in Gotham in 20 years last night.

The board has been down, so there hasn't been any talk about some of the best, down to the wire races that we've had in quite a while.

The Bravos are 80-70 and hold a 3 game lead over Philly. We have one left against the D-Bags in Arizona.  We've smoked that ass 3 games in a row, but face Madison Baumgartner today, who no-hit the Braves earlier this season.  The season wraps up with a series in San Diego, then home for the Phillies and Mets.  My sphincter is so tight, you couldn't drive a 10 penny nail up my ass with a sledge hammer. ($1 to Sir Charles)

What about those Cheatin' Cards?  Just about written off a month ago, and now they are by far, the hottest team in the game. Currently on an 11 game winning streak, and right now, firmly in the driver's seat for a wildcard berth.  Pretty amazing stuff, and coming at just the right time.  I haven't looked at their schedule so I don't know who they close with.  I'm sure the Cubbies are on that list, though.

Wrap up 4 game set at Brewers tonight.

Then onto Wrigley for 4, then host Brewers for 3 and Cubs for 3.

Plenty of games for the Cubs to play spoiler.

Tha ESP-ENNZZ says Bravos have a 86% chance and Phils 13% chance. Magic numbers are 9 and 16 respectively. Cards I think is 7.

6.  They just swept the Brewers for their 12th straight.  Team record is 14...  Which means the Cards will win the first in Wrigley, and drop the next 2.

And the Braves blew a 3-0 lead while the Phillies came back from a 5-0 deficit to win.  The next couple of weeks will be like slowly pulling a band-aid off a wound.

Like you've mentioned before, the Braves have a tough path to close the season with SD, NY and Philly getting the Mets last - hopefully by that series the Mets will have lost all their mojo and fold knowing they are out of it.... The Phils only have the Braves between the Pirates and Marlins.

This may get bumpy

Magic Numbers:

Braves at 5 to clinch the NL East.

Cards 1 to clinch the WC.

Brewers have clinched the Central.

Giants magic number is 5 to win the West.  They, along with the second place Dodgers, have already clinched a playoff spot.

So assuming everything holds...

Dodgers/Cards in WC - Mad Max vs Waino.  Doesn't look good for Cards, but they do funny voodoo to LA in the post season.

Braves/Brewers in NLDS and Wild Card Winner/Giants in the other.  Is that right?

In the AL:
Rays vs Yanks/BoSox and the ChiSox vs Astros.  But Mariners and As trail Boston by 2 or 3 for the last WC spot.

Yup...

as it stands today - would be the seedings.

1. Giants
2. Brew Crew
3. Braves
4. Dodgers/Cards play-in game

I like the 3 we have going against the Phils.....as long as we don't get swept, I still feel good about it all going into the NYM series up 1.5 and the Mets all but demoralized and shutting it down for the year.

Plot twist here - Braves need to be more than a half game up on Philly after the Mets series to avoid having to make up that Rockies game from earlier in the year.
