Dont let it fool you. The west sucks. Like i said, if we were in another division with better teams, we wouldnt be 1 game out of first. This division is always going to be close cuz the competition sucks. My point about st louis winning was that they came through with clutch hitting, something we seriously lack. Our pitching will carry us but how long? Besides Peavy and maybe Cyoung, our pitchers will have a ? the rest of the season. Maddux shows signs of beauty but then he gets shelled the next outing. Germano looks good but hes only 2 games in. We will see what happens by the all star break. We got roughly 40+ games until then and included is a big 3 game series with Boston. June and August are going to be huge months for this team. June interleague games and rival games and August we head east. If the padres sweep the Bosox, Ill shut up the rest of the season.
