Also - we're only 5 games behind the Giants for 2nd place in the wild card race (who are themselves 8.5 games behind the Braves) and 4 games behind the Cards for 3rd place. http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/standings?year=season_2011&type=wild+card
With an upgrade in CF, a better year from Werth, a solid year from Stras, and pretty mcuh the same year from everyone else, I can see us fighting the Braves for the wild card slot next year. It might not be a stretch to think we'll be about as good as the Cards and Giants are to this point this year.
Or maybe I'm drunk on the Kool Aid. Ha.
