    The playoffs will be sneaking up on us soon now that we're on 24 hour sims. Here's a quick look at what the races look like just after the halfway point.

    A couple of storylines:

    Can the Nats hang onto first place in the East?
    Will the Rockies or Giants make a run at the Diamondbacks, or will they continue to run away with the division?
    If the Cardinals hang on it will be their 2nd straight playoff north after a 5 year draught.

    I forgot the reports are through 2 sims ago, ill try and get an updated standings picture up at some point unless somebody can grab one for me.

    The Pirates are always a very good 2nd half team. I'm not sure we can hold them off.

    Our pitching is a mess right now and I'm not sure we can hang on. Ramon Ramos returns in 4 weeks though so hopefully he can show up and play a big role immediately.

    Yes we are, but we just lost a (potential) big bat to Arizona. Still glad he's gone, but really curious how we will perform this year.

    The Giants lost 3 starts last sim and I see Arizona lost Tomashaw. It should be a limp to the finish in the NL West.

    I have a brutal September schedule. I will need a 5 game lead going into the final month to have any chance at the division.

    8-1 last sim for the Braves slid us into first place while the rest of the division struggled a bit. Lynwood Abbott is hurt again, this time for 4 weeks. We're now onto our 5th and 6th outfielders until Ken Sanders comes back.

    Interesting that year in and year out the NL East does not have a clear cut favorite. And yet the Central and West are the status quo. Wonder what that says about the divisions?

    You guys have taken turns in the Central. Didn't the Cubs win it in '13 or '14? Who was the Chicago pitcher who was in the Cy Young race that pissed off BigSmooth33 ? He was actively campaigning against his All Star selection when he was like 12-1 at the break. I'm pretty sure everyone else in the division has won it at least once.
