I mean, it could happen. Split the first two games against the Dodgers or the Mets and you want someone good for Game 3. But still tough to win that on the road against a better team. The gap is still pretty real because of our poor defense, streaky hitting and combination of older banged up players and still inconsistent young players.
And for all we know Nola and Wheeler might not be lined up to open that series, if the race goes down to the wire.
Plus the future of this team after 2023 gets shaky if you are too aggressive winning now. DD has to keep in mind that balance. Also, more cynically, I'm not sure they will spend big (in trade price or $) if it doesn't get them any home games (they'd have to wait until Game 3 of the NLDS, best-case).
It would be different if they were in a one-team race for the division, or the wild card for that matter. But they have to pass both the Mets and Braves for the former, and contend with 2 or even more teams for the latter.
It won't be boring though. They'll do more/better than the past two seasons.
