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.

Finally a win! And since we're no longer leading the division, but leading the Wild Card, we picked up a game in those consolation standing to move two games ahead of San Francisco. I've gotta say that the team that scares me the most in a Wild Card race is the Rockies. They seem to have this ability to win a lot of games fast, and they're charging up the standings while beating up on another first place team (Cincinnati).
Home to face the Cardinals, and hopefully some more consistent winning. Philadelphia will be at New York on Friday, so if the Braves win tonight they can actually tie Philly for the division lead.
