    You might want to edit the offensive word out of your post.

    I think y'all are a bit hung up on the "leapfrog" comment. When teams are bunched up like this, all it takes is a hot streak from one of them to separate themselves from the pack. This makes it less likely for any particular team to do it. It's less about what place you're in (1st or 4th) and more about how many teams are bunched up together.

    One could say the Cubs might make a run because they've been underachieving all year.

    Another may say the Cardinals will (most say this) once DeRosa gets rolling again and Greene/Glaus come back.

    Do you really think the Astros are going to be the one to get this hot streak? Well, history has shown us that they are, I suppose.

    Well we have been hot since the 7 game losing streak we had in May. Including this current series, we have won 11 series, lost 3 and split 1.

    And in a few years when we realize that we have no farm system due to trades...does this sound familiar to anybody but me?

    I would take a legitimate run at the Word Series now vs. a potential depleted farm system in the future.

    Plus, a big reason the farm was depleted was not signing draft picks, and they are starting to sign then again.

    No biggie..we're just messing around. I take leapfrog to mean "jump over." And there weren't many teams to jump over.

    Separating from the pack is different from me....and will prove difficult, I think. I don't think anyone is going to separate themselves from the pack in this division. It's going to go down to the wire, I think. That makes for a fun summer.
