    Everyone of those teams but the Reds and Padres has scored more runs then they've given up.

    A .500 record all year would have us 3 games out of the division lead.

    Mack, 38-31 .550 (.493 Pyth): 356 RS (5.20 R/G) vs 369 RA (5.35 R/G)
    Narron, 31-51, .378 (.439 Pyth): 386 RS (4.71 R/G) vs 431 RA (5.26 R/G)

    Basically, the pitching is the same and the hitting is a half a run better. You can attribute the variation from pyth as luck or good management, but there's no denying the club has played better since Mack took over.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Dunn, Keppinger, Hopper, Phillips, and EE all hot since Mack took over.

    Only Griffey has been somewhat cold.

    This team is now on pace to score nearly 800 runs(4th in the NL), which is up 50 or so from last year. The pitching, however, is on pace to give up 850+ runs, which is 50 or so worse than last year. They played above their heads to the tune of 4 games to go 80-82 last year and this year they are 1 game under where their pythag says they should be, putting them on pace for 74-88, which is just where I had them in the prediction thread.

    I'm not so down on them for 2008. At this point, I'll predict 81-81 and depending on the acquisitions made from here on out, I possibly see them making a run. I definitely see this club on the rise - and I can say that for the first time in many years.

    My sleepers (to win it all) in 2007 were the Brewers and Indians and I got them in Vegas last off-season for 75-1 and 40-1 respectively. For 2008, I like the Rockies from the NL and Oakland from the AL as sleepers with high probable payoffs.

    *edit to add that I absolutely love Philly for 2008, but I don't see them being a "sleeper", especially since I think they catch the Mets and win the East this year (or at least win the WC).
