This is why they call them the dog days. This is the time of the season that's usually the most grueling and where teams are really tested, i.e. durability/stamina. In '51 the then Brooklyn Dodgers had a 13 and half game lead on the New York Giants in August. We all know how that ended with the Giants catching the Dodgers and playing them in a 3 game playoff series that ended with Bobby Thompson's shot heard around the world. Of course the Giants went on to lose in 4 to the Yankees. This is the time when the 1969 Mets made their run to catch and overtake the Chicago Cubs and Leo Durocher (the same Manager of the 51 Giants). We'll have a pretty good idea if this club's the real deal by how they perform this month.
