Yeah the Eras are bad no doubt but there's improvement slowly but surely. Part of that has to do with Halladay not pitching anymore and Durbin getting the Ax. As for the wildcard I think its Division or nothing. I don't see any NL east team beating out the Reds and Pirates. With how streaky the Braves have been I would still think we have a good shot. We play them 13 more times in August and September with the last 4 games of the season vs them down in Atlanta. Plus we play nationals 6 times in September. So if you ask me I think this will go down to the last week of season.
