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

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.
