40 Man Roster have been allowed & we are in September now, the postseason races are rolling & the Good, the Bad & the Ugly has moved to Tuesdays for the Football Season, lets take a look.
The Good: St. Louis Cardinals have the NL Central lead for the 1st time since July 20- The Cards haven’t played there best, going 5-5 in their last 10 games, but the Cards hitting has carried them back into 1st place as the Brewers have faded & the Pirates being close. The Cardinals & Brewers face each other 7 times in September & that could decide the NL Central.
The Bad: Oakland A’s hitting over the last 7 days- The A’s won yesterday, but got sweep in Anahiem vs. the Angels, the A’s batting average was only .211 as a team. The A’s are 2nd in the MLB in hitting throughout the season, but ranked 17th over the last 7 days, now 4.5 games out of 1st place, the A’s might have to focus on the AL Wild Card to get in the postseason unless the Angels fall back.
The Ugly: Milwaukee Brewers pitching over the last 7 days- The Reason why the Brew Crew are looking up at the Cardinals for the NL Central lead is mainly there pitching over the last 7 days, 1-6 record with a 5.98 ERA, 58.2 innings, 43 runs(39 earned), 28 walks & .303 opponents batting average, just plain ugly.
