    On the other hand, I always look at it this way, no WAY the Nationals keep losing at home, a Cardinals sweep does not bode well for the Reds.

    This has nothing to do with today's games but I didn't know where else to post this. Take a look at this awesome gif. It shows Yu Darvish's pitches all at once. Notice how he releases all of his pitches at the same spot. He has legit nasty, nasty stuff.

    Why? The Reds are just as good/better than the Cards and the Nats are not playing well right now. I'd take a split and move on to St. Louis, but the Reds can beat anyone, anywhere, anytime.
    Can't win with 'em

    Can't win without 'em

    Top 4 teams in the NL Central are a combined 30-10 in their last ten games. Nice little run there for the supposed weakest division in baseball.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    i'd rather have all the other teams suck and not have to worry about them but definitely not the case so far. Can't believe how well the Pirates and Brewers have played so far

    I can see the Pirates doing well pre-ASG. It's their current M.O. But the Brews??! I had to laugh when ol' TexDave said they were his pick! If EVER there was a lead pipe cinch for 3rd, it's them. But I give him kudo's for for his reasoning, 'tho slightly flawed.

    Funny how a team can go. Last year the Cards were just pitiful with RISP, and winning close games late. The pen was solid. Total reversal so far.

    I picked the Reds to win this year but when Luddy (my boy) went down I thought "OK, now the Cards can build a small lead, 3 or 4 gms before his return" in June. Now the Cards may need a 10 game lead!

    I wonder how the absence of the Stro's is affecting the standings. It's been a 4 team knot for quite a while now.

    Cards bullpen was awful at the beginning of last year. And the year before that

    Man I hate the Yankees. They're just like the Cardinals. Vernon Wells has been playing like warm garbage for years now, yet he's hitting 301 with 6 HRs already this year. Unreal.

    I see Clay Buchholz got his 5th win last night which matches Miami's total for the year. I wonder what is the latest in a season that a single pitcher has had as many wins as another team?

    In 1904, the Washington Senators won 38 games. Jack Chesbro won 40 games to lead the league. I wouldn't be suprised if it happene a number of times then.

    In more recent times, Dave Stewart started out the season 8-0. The Baltimore Orioles began the season 0-21 and did not win game number 8 until May 22nd.
