From the desk of our NL East reporter csudak:
The NL East is still anyone's ball game, with only 6 games separating first and last.
Washington is still holding strong in 1st, after finishing last season in last place. Vector21 has done a great job turning this team around. The key to their success if is a solid offense, with just enough pitching.
Philadelphia is in 2nd, but only 2 games back after a 3 game win streak. It will be interesting to see if they can hold onto the 2nd position, with 9 straight games coming up against teams over .500.
Jacksonville is keeping pace at 4 games back and doing it with solid pitching. The Juice need to get some more people on base to have a chance at moving up the ladder and contending with Washington and Philly
While only 6 games back, Cincy just doesn't have the bats to compete with the top of the division. With no everyday players batting over .300, you wonder if a move is in order. On the bright side of things is 13 of the next 19 are against sub .500 teams, so if there was ever a chance to make a move, now is the time.
