...and a much needed day off for the team AND the fans!
Here are some things I thought of today....some positive thoughts...
1. While we are not in first, we are only 2.5 games out--the team just needs to keep treading water while we wait for the health to come back.
2. We are 3 games over .500, and that is with a lot of road games under their belt already.
3. The Reds and Brewers seem to be playing over their heads right now... I don't think that either will keep that pace. The Cardinals, however, may be our biggest threat as they always seem to get the most out of their players no matter who they are.
4. The fight and grind they are going through right now could help in their post season play. This team is going to get better. Lou and Jim will improve the pen... the slumpers will start to hit... it will come together. And if they continue to fight and keep in the race, that fight will carryover to the postseason (yes, if we can get there, I know, but I'm trying to be positive here
). Last year there was no fight needed...
