When you go through the pages here (they’re not that long, I promise), you will notice that only one team had a winning week. That was the Pittsburgh Pirates at 4-2. In fact, for each team’s last ten games, none are better than 5-5. That includes division-leading Milwaukee.

Here’s the division standings as of play through yesterday, May 8, 2014

Team W L PCT GB
Milwaukee 22 13 .629
St. Louis 18 17 .514 4.0
Cincinnati 15 18 .455 6.0
Pittsburgh 14 20 .412 7.5
Cubs 12 21 .364 9.0

So here’s a look at the past week, a few notes on each team, and who each team faces in the upcoming week. There’s a couple of intriguingly good inter-divisional series coming up.
