They're 6.5 back. Officially off the Dead List on a temporary basis. Now if they can somehow gain a game and a half before next Friday, they'll be 5 games behind the Braves heading into the weekend series. Will they be that Girl From High School again?
I don't expect it. Even with this 5 game winning streak they're on, I don't expect it or believe they'll make a run.
But that's okay. They're a fun team to watch. Unlike the last couple of years, when they've been out of it, they've been unwatchable. This year, they're a scrappy, fun bunch.
