Lewis Grizzard had a book titled When My Love Returns From the Ladies Room, Will I Be Too Old To Care?.
That is about how I feel about the Braves this season. This season has been streaky and downright weird. As of today, the Braves are 6 games out of the Divsion and are tied with San Franciso for the second spot in the NL Wildcard, 2 games behind St. Louis. The Pirates and the Marlins are nipping at their heels.
Over the course of the next 7 weeks, the Braves have 6 games against the Nats, 6 against Miami, and 5 against the Pirates.
Here is the rest of the schedule:
going for the sweep against Pittsburg tonight, then 4 games at Cincinnati, 3 games at New York Mets, 3 vs. Miami, 3 vs. Philly, 3 at Miami, 3 at Washington, 3 at Texas, 3 vs. Washington, 3 vs. New York, 4 vs. Pittsburgh, and the final 3 at Philly.
I think that is managable, and the East is not final yet, though I do believe that the Braves will end up in the playoffs as one of the Wild Card teams.
However, even if they do make the playoffs, will I even care? I am not sure I will.
Apathy is bad thing.
