I bet the Braves think there are must win games in August after they had a 6-9 run against teams who ended up with losing records and they missed the playoffs by one game.
No....I hate blowing those crap games and Dusty drives me insane....but I also see the other side of it all.
Maybe it's semantics but a must win game means you have to win or your done. With a 3 game lead and 50 to play we still have the edge on everyone. Are we playing great?....absolutely not. Was I very excited during the great run where we found a way to win every game....not at all. I'm looking for the best chance to win lineups (assuming rest for everyone) and good plate approaches. I think the NL sucks and we have a chance but it's about getting there and once the playoff starts....how are we? Healthy? Timely hitting? Can we get a bunt down? Bruce playing versus a tough lefty? Baserunning?
This game/series really told me nothing at all.
