    Don't dismiss the Diamondbacks just yet.

    Even though they sit at 58-57 they are only 1.5 GB of a wild card berth, but a soft season ending schedule gives Arizona a very real shot of grabbling a postseason spot, Greinke or no Greinke.

    They got three very tough games starting tonight in LA against your 1927 Yankees and your 2019 World Series winners (some sarcasm there from your pal Nasher) then 10 straight games against sub .500 teams.
    They should go 8-5 in those next 13.

    Then three at the Brees, two at the Giants. Four toughies at home vs. LAD.
    Look at the schedule from 9/13 to the end of season,
    It's softer than butter.

    85 wins is not out of the question.

    they were in 1st place all last year until September rolled around and then self destructed.

    hopefully things are different this year, but they still have some of the same problems.

    there is no clear hierarchy in the bullpen & most importantly nobody penciled in as closer since Holland got cut.

    there is a lot of work to do but I believe Torey luvollo is the best manager in the league & that counts for something when the stretch run rolls around.

    I donít think they make it but anyone in NL sitting around .500 def has a shot.

    I think the WC spots will go to 2 out of this group:

    Nats
    Muts
    Philly
    Any of the 3 central teams that donít win div which is (cubs, cards, brewers reds).

    Assuming that the Dodgers are home free and Atlanta is just about guaranteed a spot in the playoffs, you have 5 teams with better records than Arizona going for 3 spots. That means two of those teams will miss out. Do you really think Arizona is going to pass 3 teams? Good luck with that.

    Winner last night.

    What happened in the end there? I saw a lot of drama but it was on the screen across the casino floor.

    I couldn’t really figure out what was going on but that ARI pitcher was pissed, even after winning the game.

    They def have a good shot. Could be them and the Nats unless one the central teams get hot. Cards should get back into it now that their tough stretch is over. In the end tho I think cards really good pen might fall apart with how hard we leaning on them. Front office buried us by not going out and getting a starter to eat some innings.

    That what annoys me bout cards front office. They hold onto their prospects for dear life as if they the future but so often they donít pan out for one reason or another. They scared to trade them then they donít amount to shit for whatever reason.

    Yadi part of the problem. Our overpaid vets in general, they dictate everything and it sucks.

    Bader canít hit, back in minors.
