Go West, Young Birds

Fifteen straight Sunday losses, starters who tax the bullpen by struggling to pitch more than five innings at a time, a record stuck just below .500, and an impending trade deadline together signal that the fun of the 2008 season - and make no mistake about it, this has been a fun ride - may soon be over.

Looking for a silver lining? The Birds would be a half-game out of first place in the N.L. West.
