I just hope we’re not peaking too early. I hope we can maintain a steady course over the next two months by winning games in different ways.
I’ve said this before and it’s worth repeating. I think we would have won the WS last season if we were healthy. Even still with our bench playing last season we still gave the Giants all they could handle as I thought the NL West was pretty weak. But again, it’s all about who’s hot at that point of the year.
I think the fact that we are close enough that the head-to-head games can give us a chance to win the NL East will help us not be “complacent” going into the playoffs (i.e. something to play for). I think I heard a quote from Charlie Manuel about that with the Phils having such a large lead on Atlanta (a week or so ago)…
Heyward not starting tonight. And have you seen Constanza’s BA/OBP/SLG the past 6 games?: .176 .263 .176. And there’s a righty going for the Cubs. It wasn’t too early to get Mac in there yesterday to get used to catching Hudson again in prep for the playoffs. When is the team going to give Heyward that same chance. This is nuts.
