2 games doesn't seem like a lot in the loss column, but when it's two teams you have to climb over, it's quite a mountain.
No time to let up. Need to sweep the Cubs.
They don't need to sweep anyone now. Simply winning series--maybe with one sweep but not essential--and good, series-winning work against Pittsburgh, should secure the division crown. We're right in the rear-view mirrors that we need to be. Riding the rear bumpers hard. No, can't let up but don't have to be perfect; just a little better than STL and PIT. And, I'm counting on the Bucs to knock STL off their perch today.
