JJ: Have emerged from brutal East as best in the game.
Tony: Will be interesting to see what they add at deadline.

JJ: Pujols somehow quietly rounding into form.
Tony: To answer my question, yes this is the hot streak.
JJ: Can Sheets keep this up?

Tony: If only they could play the Cubs every weekend...
