4 Maccabees 17.
Despite St. Louis running out to a better start than I had hoped, it would have been nice if the rest of the NL Central were walking walking. Unfortunately Pittsburgh and Cincinnati didn't get the memo. They're only 2 1/2 games back of the Cardinals in spite of the all out sprint out of the blocks.
It may be one of those summers when each game seems critical and worthy of attention. That would be fun. Haven't had one of those in a long time.
