    They're going to be on an 11 game win streak if Bregman and Altuve don't suit up (which seems probable for Friday at least)

    Well, we're really up against it now. Probably need to go about 12-4 or 13-3 to even have a chance, which is a tall order under any circumstances. With our patchwork pitching staff, it feels like every game is a coin flip to even get a competitive start. Throw in these injuries to our horses, it's hard to have any optimism.

    With the starting staff we have had for this last month, it's surprising we are still in it at all. Watching these last games hopefully, but won't be particularly bummed if we don't make it becuase that expectation isn't there anymore

    Bregman and Springer's rookie seasons are similar.... play pretty well, then a hamstring ends it.

    How is it cherry-picking?
