NL West Fever: Catch It!

How great is the NL West?  This is turning out to be an all-time great race.  It's keeping my attention, as I check the standings daily and don't even really care who wins.

Rookie & Comeback
Players of the Year:
Posey and Huff
We mentioned on Thursday that we were looking forward to the four-game series in San Diego this weekend.  San Francisco just tied the Padres for the division lead with a 6-1 victory.  Tim Lincecum has seemingly rebounded from a rough stretch by pitching well today and the last couple of weeks.

The way both of these teams have been built and performed make them very likable stories, but the best story in the National League could again be the comeback Rockies.  In recent years, the Rockies have put together furious winning streaks in a chase to win the pennant.

Giambi hasn't changed a bit
Today, the Rockies won their 10th straight game as Jason Giambi hit a 2-run pinch hit home run to untie the game in the bottom of the 9th.  With the Giants defeating the Padres, Colorado 1.5 games behind both teams.

It's a strange feeling.  I don't really care who wins, but I feel pretty confident it'll stay a good race to the end.  NL West fever.  Catch it while you can!
