Braves Bandwagon Part I

Jayson Stark's Rumblings and Grumblings on ESPN:

"Which team this year is most likely to come from even a couple of games back in the pack and show up in October? ... [O]ur pick would be the Braves. They have a better run differential (plus-48) than six of the eight teams that would make the playoffs if the postseason started today. They rank first or second in the league in batting average, ERA and rotation ERA. And the biggest reason for their .500-ish record (28-25) is their 2-14 record in one-run games.

"I'm going to predict this right now," said one NL scout. "I think Atlanta wins that division."

Jayson and unnamed NL scout, welcome to Baseball Playoffs Now, where Atlanta has been winning the NL East since April 22, when by record they were fourth in the division - but by our ratings easily on top.
