Look at the teams in the fight: Phillies have Howard, Fish have Cabrera, Jints have Barry, Cards have Pujols. SD simply has monster pitching. But for the most part, these teams have their star hitters performing at this critical hour. We're stuck with an injured Griffey and Dunn hitting .204 in the past 30 days. Ouch. Imagine if Dunn had hit .270 (which still not that great) in that stretch. The Reds would be right in it.
