I think that's asking a bit much, because those streaks rarely happen. We just need to win each of these series and hopefully throw in a sweep or two. I think a bigger factor is the weight on the shoulders of the Pirates. I don't expect a collapse similar to last year's, but at some point they're going to start feeling that 20-year old monkey on their backs. Maybe around the time the D'backs come to town.
