Certainly the NL is down this year, and I will acknowledge that this is playing a large part in our contention for a w/c spot and the pennant. AFA as your opinion that we cannot get hot but we can collapse...I see both scenarions as equally likely. You can choose to view this thing with a negative outlook if you want to. As for me, I'm going to try to enjoy it.
