Chris Young hasn't been the same since he injured the oblique, and Peavy only pitches one more game.

The Padres are done. I'm going with the Phillies here.

I'm gonna go with the Rockies just because. If they stay hot, it could certainly happen. SD continues to struggle, and the Phillies and Atlanta beat on each other (I didn't realize Atlanta was only 3 out in the wild card) --- the Rockies could control their own destiny going into the final 3 games. Of course, I just looked at their schedule, and they end with AZ. So, maybe they'll just win the damn division! :D:

The Padres I think will win it. They play the Brewers this weekend.

But aren't those games in Milwaukee? The Brewers are tough at home. But anyways I think I have to go with the Phillies to continue this hot streak.

Nothing would make me happier than to see the Phils nudge out the Mets for the NL East and the Mets make the wild card.

Then Rowand and Iguchi could take out the Cubs in the first round. :D:

If that game Sunday means anything, Peavy will be starting it on 3 days rest.

I'll take the Padres.

The Phillies face Chuck James, Tim Hudson and John Smoltz over the next 3 days, though they do have the advantage of being at home the rest of the way.

The Padres have to play on the road the rest of the way, but they could have Peavy and Young pitching 3 of those 6 games.

The Rockies are home for the Dodgers and on the road at Arizona.

Even though the Padres offense is in trouble with Bradley and Cameron out, I'll take the team with the best pitching.

I think the Phils can finally get in. The Padres have lost Bradley, one of their better hitters, for the season. The Rockies are absolutely blistering right now, and they could make things interesting. But I'll take the Phils though.

My gut is telling me the Phils, but the Rockies look really good right now. Phils with those gritty bats and Sox players finally squeak in.

Well, nothing changed after yesterday.

Tonight's matchups are:

Phi - Lohse
vs.
Atl - Hudson

Col - Fogg
vs.
LA - Lowe

SD - Peavy
vs.
SF - Misch

Clear advantage for the Padres tonight. This is potentially their chance to pull away and control their own destiny.

Yeah, I flip-flopped their schedule in my head while typing. They're on the road against the Dodgers and at home for the D'backs series.

I'm here to help. :smile:

There's a lot of interesting series going on this week. Heck, if things fall right, you could see the Rockies winning the NL West and the Braves winning the wild card with AZ and the Mets staying home. It's far fetched, but it could happen.

You can have them. A few weeks back, when Peavy started vs. Arizona on 3 days rest he got absolutely lit up.

It'll be the Rox! Yeah!

Not SD, though. They are destined to get swept this weekend as the Brewers win the NL Central!

I'm hoping for San Diego. While many people here are accused of being
"flubsessed" (I HATE that word) I am more worried about the Philadelphia
Phillies. I want them nowhere near the postseason!!! So I guess that makes
me "phil-sessed."

I think its too even to predict... flip a coin.

I hope:

NL East: Phillies
NL West: Arizona or Pads, I don't care
NL WC: Rockies

Yeah, Jake was not sharp that day. But if a situation were to come up where the Padres needed to win that game to make the playoffs, I sure as hell wouldn't bet against Peavy, 3 days rest or not.

With only 3 games to go, not one single team in the NL has 90 wins. :o:

Has it ever happened in MLB history that not one team in an entire league was able to crack 90 wins?

...actually, it's guaranteed that at least one NL team will end up with 90 wins this year since Ariz and Col. play each other and any combination of wins/losses between the two will give one of the teams at least 90 wins.

Since everyone (except the stinky Cubs and Brewers) are so close, I wonder if we'll have a playoff game or two on Monday. That would be sweet.

During the wild-card era, has it ever happened before that not a single team in the league has secured a playoff spot going into the final weekend? That's what we have in the NL.

The goddamn Cubs are tied for the sixth-best record in the league and just got swept by the horse**** Marlins, yet they are in the most favorable position of any team in the NL!

I'd like to see the Phillies and Rockies get in, just to see some new blood in the playoffs. Get rid of those ****ing Mets and eliminate any chance of an all-New York World Series.
