Atlanta Braves Postseason Pace

For the rest of the season we'll keep a daily tally of the Atlanta Braves chances of making the post season, along with daily commentary. Also consider this a daily open thread for general chatting.

NL East W L PCT GB STRK Magic Num Playoff Odds
Braves 78 56 .586 - L1 27 96%
Phillies 76 58 .564 2 W3 31 74.3%

 

I guess if we lose once every six games I'll be fine with that. The Braves just seemed flat the whole game last night like they were waiting for the Mets to mess up and hand them the victory (when in fact it was the other way around). I would have liked one more hit by Melky so we could have seen Troy Glaus pinch hit. That would have incited many a angry on-line responses.

Unfortunately for us the Rockies bullpen absolutely collapsed and allowed the Phillies to come back. Then the Phillies bullpen almost collapsed and let the Rockies come back. This is almost too much excitement for early September.

Philadelphia heads home to face Milwaukee for three games, and the Braves head on the road to face the Fish in Miami. I'll be down there for the first time to see the Marlins "stadium." I think I'll just go to the Saturday night game, but I may hit up the Sunday game and get a Ricky Nolasco drawstring bag (unfortunate timing on that promo). On Saturday I can't pass up the JJ vs. JJ pitching match-up. In fact, this entire series we have the double consonant pitchers going for us -- tonight is KK, Saturday is JJ, and Sunday is MM (and then TH and TH).
