Things are tightening up. The Cardinal 4 game losing streak has the Pirates only 3 games back, and the Brews, Stros and Cubs all tied 5 behind. (15-20)

It's worth noting that the North Siders started the season 4 and 12. I don't know quite what to make of them just yet, but they're helping everybody else by whuppin' up on the Cards, as are the Astro's. (is Castro for real?)

This would be a good time for the Reds to bust a move.
