You have to like the way things are going these days. The Giants are streaking and three games up, the Dodgers are looking entirely human, and Arizona is running out of time to make a big run.
That’s not to say there isn’t plenty that can go wrong. Timmy might not get it together after all, one of the other three could get hurt. Zito could shit the bed even worse than he normally does.
Or perhaps the Dodgers swing a big deal at the deadline. They have plenty of flaws, but they could also catch lightning in a bottle should they strike gold on a trade. Or Arizona could once again spontaneously combust and spend the rest of the summer playing out of their minds.
Or none of that happens and the Giants get some late relief help, win the division and go into October with a pitching staff that makes the 2010 squad look hittable by comparison.
