Quick comment regarding the question of numerous pitchers getting saves for the Astros. I used to play in a couple of Strat-O-Matic leagues; I recall one 75-game season where I had 10 different pitchers recording saves. Even ten or more years ago, I was not one to save my best reliever for the ninth inning. If I had to use him to get out of a seventh-inning jam, fine, I'd just mix and match and try to muddle through from there.

The Marlins are (through Friday) 17-5 at home and 3-10 on the road. If they continue with those percentages, they win 81 games. The Rockies splits (13-5 home, 9-10 road) would get them 96 wins.
