NL Wild Card

Postby George_Foreman » Mon Sep 26, 2005 1:16 am

So, after today's Houston loss and Philadelphia win, the difference is down to one game! This race is just as tight as the one for the AL WC, but I don't think we've had it out nearly as much. So who's your pick? I think Philadelphia is too hot to lose it at this point. Rollins is on a 30-game hitting streak, and they're fresh off winning a series against Atlanta, and all they've got left are the Nationals and Mets while the Astros draw the Cubbies and the Cardinals. Houston seems to have a flair for this, but the Phills have waited too long to get in to the playoffs to miss this opprotunity.

(In other news, if thei Giants can sweep their four-game series against the Pads, we could be in for a very interesting finish in the NL West, as well. :-D)

Everything on paper seems like Philly has got the advantage but the town of Philadelphia has been made to be disappoint. The Philles always blow whenever they get a chance to make something happen, I just think they'll choke even if they do have an easier schedule. It will be interesting.
