True. I like the way you are seeing the season. People shouldn't overreact early.
But each games count. Give away games early in the season can really cost you.
"I have to say I like this thread. Useful for NL West discussions"
I figured I'd post the standings early on and update it from time to time while we all discuss the division moves and such throughout the year.
I agree. I remember years ago when the Dodgers lost the Division Championship to the Padres, even though their records were the same, I always remember a game in late May vs. the Pads where the Dodgers were up by 5 in the 9th, and Little let Lance Carter (i think it was him) lose the lead. The Dodgers lost the game in extra innings. A game like that, we often think, "Well, it's only May, so it's really not important", but that game would hav given us the Division.
But, at the same time, a manager has to let the team lose games in order for him to find out what he has in his players. It's a tough situation, either way.
" we need to play one first. Look man if you think the brewers are a good team thats sad the Pirates are better right now and we swept them. The Pirates are the best team we have played so far.We caught bad breaks in this series and there was some home cooking at play posibly I dont know just tough breaks however the Pirates are better then the Brewers!"
I hope you're not serious. Small sample size and pirates haven't had winning season in decades.
"Lol true.. Bot 6 dirtybacks losing to chipper and the braves"
We play them starting Monday...hopefully we can beat the Braves too.
