I'm sure a lot (if not all) of you have seen my crowing about August 1 not being as big of a deal as our April losses, or our early bullpen losses, etc. Well, my apologies to Jack Frostt, johnnyangel101, Turks Teeth, and anyone else who had to endure those comments. I was wrong. Very wrong. As the week progresses, 8/1 is looking more and more like a back-breaker. I still think we can do this, through the Wild Card or even the division, but it's becoming painfully obvious how important August 1 was. Let's go, Halos!
