Make or Break for the Season?


So here we sit.  7 games over .500, first place in the division and let's be honest, just a little giddy about it all.  The question that lurks out there is "How close to real is all this?"   And a case can be made that the next three series will give us a much better look at what that answer might be.

1 game left in the CIN series, then 3 against STL, 4 against ATL and 3 against PHI.  11 games.  If we win 4 of them we come out at the end of July still at .500, any more than that and (obviously) we're above that line.  Going into August at .500 would be a great thing from the purely fan point of view.  Going 4-7 might have some more negative effect on the team.

Or would it?  Assuming we don't get our butts handed to us all through the three series what would be your feeling on the Bucs August 1?  I think they can certainly take 4 games out of these 11, 5 or 6 would be my upper (optimistic fan) upper limit.  If Pedro comes back up and gives us even a little bit more hitting it might be interesting.

Or am I completely out of my mind?
