I'm not saying it's impossible, but it's very difficult to take three out of four in a series and look as bad as the Braves did against the Rockies.

Craig Kimbrel now has struck out 94 of the 187 batters he's faced this year.

What they've got left (vs. means home):

Atlanta: 3 at New York, 3 at Milwaukee, 3 vs. Washington, 3 at Miami, 3 at Philadelphia, 3 vs. Miami, 3 vs. Mets, 3 at Pittsburgh. Pretty favorable except having 12 of next 15 on the road.

St. Louis: 3 vs. Milwaukee, 3 at SD, 4 at LA, 3 vs. Hou, 3 at Chi, 3 at Hou., 3 vs. Wash., 3 vs. Cin. Needless to say, the four-gamer in LA is huge for both teams.

Pittsburgh: 3 vs. Chi., 3 at Cincinnati, 4 at Chicago, 3 vs. Mil, 3 at Hou., 4 at NY, 3 vs. Cin., 3 vs. Atl. One key: Whether Cincinnati and Atlanta still have to win in the final week or might be resting players and short-starting the playoff rotation.

Los Angeles: 3 at SF, 2 at Ariz., 4 vs. St. L, 3 at Wash., 3 at Cin., 3 at SD, 3 vs. Col., 3 vs. SF. With the tough mid-month trip, it's a more difficult schedule than SF or St.L., the two teams they're trying to chase down.

SF: 3 vs. L.A., 3 at Col., 3 at Ariz., 4 vs. Col., 3 vs. SD, 3 vs. Ariz., 3 at SD, 3 at LA. In good shape as long as they take care of business against the teams below them. All games in the division. Nine games against Snakes in their final 28 is weird scheduling.

Washington's win percentage now sits at .620... that's 100 wins on the season. They need to go 15-10 down the stretch to make it a reality.

Too bad they're done playing the Cubs for the season.

The Braves have their postseason strategy set. Score one unearned one per game, get a dominant performance from the starting pitcher, Kimbrel strikes out everybody. Easy peasy.

Washington's win percentage now sits at .620... that's 100 wins on the season. They need to go 15-10 down the stretch to make it a reality.

And the Cubs need to go 11-14 to lose 100 games. Absolutely a horrible year for them. If they didn't get to play Houston a bunch of times to end the season they might actually have lost 105 to 110 games this year.
   8. Robert in Manhattan Beach Posted: September 07, 2012 at 02:54 AM (#4229007)
The Braves have now absorbed 179 PAs of Paul Janish's .191/.268/.241 performance. Rafael Belliard wouldn't even sign for that line.
