Their players and fans already think they can catch us, giving them light at the end of the tunnel is bad news. If we lose sizable ground to them on their 10 game trip then this race is far from locked down and they have a legit shot as they come back home for nothing but easy games until the final week when Washington goes there resting players and then we have to end the season there and haven't won many series there in recent years.
Just can't bring Lecure in, in that situation the way he's been pitching lately. Since his sore shoulder thing he just hasn't been reliable. Don't know why that's not discernable from the dugout when its obvious from the stands. That was the biggest mistake. Oh well, almost stole it anyway.

Getting a split was great. Would have loved to steal another tonight, but Philly played well especially in the end. Not going to complain.

Indeed if your bad you're bad, but if you have a good team its added motivation to battle late in the year.
