Re: It's moving time
Definitely get the feeling that if we are going to make a real push it has to happen now. I think we have the #2 WC on lockdown...I think it's a given. Now I'm only concerned with making one more serious push at the Central and maybe taking the #1 WC as a consolation. But it seems the table is set for us to make a move right now.
1. Ludwick returns
2. Cards-Pirates play each other this week, so we are guaranteed to make up ground if we win
3. Our schedule is soft with the Cubs and Crew this week
I think the time is now because we can make a move in the next week or two and then can afford to dip a little without it being a disaster. If you wait until September to try and make up 5 games over two teams then you almost zero margin for an error and one off week equals that's all she wrote.
Make the move now, get to within a game or two by the last week of August and then we can really see who's boss over the last five weeks of the season.
