jrobau, I don't see them hitting a slump with that schedule. You also don't see teams who have been consistent for 133 games hit a slump over the last 25.
This team is really focused and on a mission. Philly will have to go Colorado on them if they expect to over take. I think the Braves will win 95-97 games this season.
Plus, keep in mind, when you guys were losing a week ago we were in our own slump, losing 5 of 6.
Regardless, I hope to see philly in NCLS because the wildcard WILL come out of the East.

I think Hanson's performance last night was huge and in a way typifies the Braves season to date. He got shelled on Friday and instead of coming out with a little dented confidence, he put the hammer down.
The Braves are a mentally tough group and fun to watch.
Sidenote, as bad as everyone has been on Lowe's case and most deservedly so, I think he comes up big for us down the stretch for some reason.
