We still have a race for the playoffs. The Cubs had a great July,
but their August in looking a lot like June.
This has allowed the other teams to hang on.
Team W L % GB
CUBS 59 54 .522 -
STL 58 56 .509 1.5
MIL 59 57 .509 1.5
PIT 56 58 .491 3.5
The Brewers and the Cubs are at this moment tied in the lead for Runs.
The Cardinals are not far behind. Interestingly, the Cardinals lead in hits.
The Brewers lead in Home Runs.
The Pirates are last in Run and Home Runs.
Team R H HR
Cubs 530* 941- 160
MIL 530* 982 163*
STL 525 995* 135
PIT 481- 952 108-
What has kept the Cardinals from cathing the Cubs, their lack
of power hitting and leaving people on base.
What keeps the Pirates in the race, their pitching. They give
up the fewest Home Runs and walks.
What is kept the Brewers at bay from the Cubs; their pitchng.
Of the four teams, they give up more Home Runs and walk more batters.
Team W HR BB SO
Cubs 59 137 386 987*
STL 58 127 338 953
MIL 59 143- 405- 949
PIT 56 124* 328* 862-
None of the four teams are what they were last year.
The Cubs, Cardinals, and Pirates are worse teams. The Brewers are better than last year.
I don't think I need to show numbers to prove that.
