Its still going to come down to those 6 games against Philly I think. If we can some how put a run together and win 4-5 out of those 6, we should be able to at least get the Wild Card. That is unless we continue to completely melt down against the other games left in September. We should have swept these turds this week. No we have to go home to play St. Louis. Ugh.

We may just get swept by the hapless Pirates. I have absolutely no faith in Derek Lowe being able to put together a solid start against anybody at this point. We will need to score 7-8 runs today to win. He is going to give up a 5-6 run spot through the first 5 innings. Book it. Its just how he rolls.

Well, Lowe is 9-0 against the Pirates in his lifetime. I'd be shocked if they don't come out and swing the bats well tonight.

^^^^^This and Zach Duke has been notoriously tough on us in the past.

We are -155 in this game and I just don't see it the way Lowe has been pitching lately. I'm not ready to mail it in yet but it will be tough if we don't take at least 4-6 from the Phils because I don't see the Giants fading.

The more likely scenario would be for the bottom to continue to fall out of the Padres and the Giants win the West. Then I think we have the wild card locked up IMO.

Okay, now that we are in the morning after regarding the Braves here is my opinion. We are still in trouble, the hitting woes that were early in the year are back. You can afford to have a hole or two in your lineup but not three or four.

We don't have the big time homerun threat, no Ryan Howard, Tex, Votto, Pujols type player. All the teams in contention have this guy.

That being said, we have solid pitching and are still a good team. Good enough to win more games then SF and Philly? No, but I do think we will win more games then one of those guys thus making the playoffs.
