50 games into the season they lead MLB with a record of 32-18 (.640), 1.5 games ahead of the Giants and ( :evil: )Dodgers( :hfal: ) who at .612 are tied for the second best record in baseball. With the top three teams all in the NL West, what does that say about the rest of the National League?

But can it last?

Right now they're largely being carried by the pitching staff. Leading all of MLB with 2.56 team ERA (only the Dodgers at 2.97 are under 3.00), Saves, Strikeouts, WHIP and opposing teams' BA of .202 :shock: .

The most exciting thing that's happened around here in years, and very fun to watch. They also lead the majors in stolen bases with 57 (closest team is KC with 36). Recently they lost five of their offensive starters for something like 10 days due to a positive Covid test, and still lost only one game in that stretch. When Tatis Jr. came back he went 11 - 14 with, I think, 4 HR in his first four games.

It's still early in the season, and a lot can go wrong. But they're very deep in young talent. Can they beat the LA team for the NL West? Anybody who can knock the Dodgers off is my favorite team.
