How the (NL) West Will Be Won

Fun weekend in Philadelphia. Fun road trip. Four out of six against two playoff contenders back east? Works for me. Now the boys return to Petco for a huge four-game series against Arizona. We can whine about the fact that the Diamondbacks are outperforming their Pythagorean record by 12 games or we can acknowledge the [...]

Padres/Phillies Preview

Was that an insane series in New York or what? Thank goodness the Padres hung on to win on Thursday night (box score). Taking two out of three against the Mets in their home park is a pretty slick trick, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. We’ll postpone the weekly link roundup [...]
