Because I'm a fan. Because even when things have not gone well, I prefer to be upbeat positive.
We are 63-68.
We need to go 7-2 to reach .500.
We would need to go 16-6 to reach 86 wins. From today therefore we would need to go 23-8.
The Card would have to play under .500 ball. The Pirates are not going anywhere if we take all 5 remaining games, they will be on a steady downslide.
The Braves are in.
The Dodgers could improve and stay ahead of us. The Cards will probably play above .500.
So why not?
