Last night's loss was disheartening, but remember how dismal it looked when we were 7 out, yet here we are, still in the division race. We win our series and the Pirates/Cards series go two the other way this weekend is my hope. But so far we're 3-2 this week and have lost ground.
Would you believe that Braves fans are more nervous than Red fans right now? And I can see that. With the loss of Heyward, the Central top 3, already better teams become clear favorites.
And it's not just the Central they fear....it's the Nats too. 15 game lead cut to 11 is possible at the end of the week, and an 11 game lead with 5 weeks left can certainly be done. Big win last night by Nats....let's see if the team catches fire.
