I don't think we have an up and down team. I think we have a team that's won two division titles in the last three years, a team that won 97 games last season, a VERY talented team that most fanbases would kill to have. Every team other than the Braves are up and down this early in the season. Crazy hyperbole and flipping out over every loss really serves no purpose in baseball. I remember in 2010 after we blew six run leads TWO DIFFERENT TIMES in the ninth inning, everyone thought we were done. Also got swept by the Cards in August. That team sailed to the division crown.
