Baseball Prospectus had our playoff odds at 7% yesterday. Today the table's been wiped so everyone's at zeroes. They acknowledged earlier this week that, due to a coding bug, games previously played were actually not being counted toward teams' expected records.

ESPN has our playoff odds at 52.1%. I'd still give them maybe 25% myself.

I'm not predicting. I just don't have any experience checking the pennant race / division race for a Washington team. Contrary to the nature of being, and, yes, that's ontology. Nats can't possibly make the playoffs, but whenever they play I'm surprised if they don't win.

BP completely rebooted their odds software/algorithm. We now stand at 20.9% odds with a projected final record of 82-80. The injuries are hurting our projected win %.

Good enough for me, when do I send in my cash for playoff tickets?

Did you see my post from last night that the Nats are showing you doing the Finger Gunz on the big screen?  They had a montage of Nats moments and fans and you are featured in it, they showed it in the second or third inning.

Going into today, the Nats are 5th in the NL in home runs.  That surprised me.

As of the end of the day, the Nats have a 2 game lead over the Marlins and the Mets in the wild card race.

Nats will be there until the end. Pitching, good defense, hitting will improve though only to a degree

Let 'em know you're coming to town and get 'em to give you good seats.   You can sit behind home (or the home dugout) and "gun" 'em 'til your little hearts content.

Heck yes.

My main goals this summer;

1. Go to as many games as possible.
2. Try to get to Baltimore or Boston for a weekend of games.

And, most importantly

3. Meet up with the WNFF honchos, maybe have an adult beverage, and then brawl with Philly fans when they come back to DC. I know atleast MDS and Chief would be down for the last part.

Heck, also maybe get a little notice for my little finer gunz episode. A high five from Terrance or Clint would be life changing.

No offense, but I'd rather have a giant poster of Smithian's avatar hanging from one of the parking garages.

Terrance and Clint are really not on your level. You need to think bigger. For starters, I really like the picture hanging from the garage. Or maybe throwing out the first ball. Or shouting "Let's Play Ball."

You're a big timer now. You need to start acting like it. 8)

No Ramos, No Werth, No Morse, No Storen, No DeRosa, No Lidge, No Matteus, No Problem - 10 games over .500 for the first time this year.
