I was staring at the NL West standings this morning and I have to admit, this isn’t really adding up. To me anyway. 27-15? For a team that can’t hit and an under-performing pitching staff? And yet, here we sit atop one of the toughest divisions in baseball. If you had to list off the top 3 reasons for this unexpected start, what would your list look like?
1) team chemistry
2) rock solid bullpen
3) best manager in baseball
Of course there are other things. You might not even agree that those 3 things are contributing to playing .643 ball so far in 2014.
Whatever it is, I’ve come to expect wins. Put ’em in the bank. See where we stand in September….
