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.
Last year from Aug 22nd-24th (2 weeks later than we are this season) the upcoming World Series Champion Cardinals hosted the uber cold Dodgers who were a miserable 11 games under .500 The Cardinals at home with their 3 best pitchers (Carpenter, Lohse and Garcia) and the Dodgers busted their tails for a 3 game sweep and outscored them 24-7.
If teams caved every time there was some trouble most every team would suck from May on.
