I wish I was more excited for the Nationals to make the playoffs, but I can't shake the feeling that they're destined for one and done.

Yep. Who is this douche anyway?

He writes for ESPN.com and Fangraphs. Based out of Boston - probably an unhappy Red Sox supporter just looking for something to cut down.

Now would actually be a good time to double down on his Braves division title prediction - it's perfectly plausible given our remaining schedule.

The Phillies are playing strong again, so the next three games for the Braves are going to be the toughest.  The Marlins, Mets, and Pirates are all lost causes though.  Luckily the only way the elimination number moves is if the Braves lose or the Nats win.  If the Nats can play strong against the Brew crew and try to win three of four, and the Braves drop 2 of 3, that puts the number down to 3 and I think the Nats can afford at least three wins against the Phils and the Cards.

Even my doomsday scenario which I mapped out game by game now projects the Nats to finish in a first place tie w/the Braves.  I had the Nats losing last night's game to the Dodgers and ultimately finishing one game back.  2012 Division Champs, we're almost there....

I'm not actually predicting the Nats will lose the division, I'm just saying that I think Paul should have stuck with his prediction rather than lamely copped out. It's not completely implausible yet.

My dream umpiring crew for the WC game between the Braves and whoever the second team is:  Marvin Hudson, Alan Porter, Joe West, CB Bucknor, Bob Davidson, and Laz Diaz.  Do it MLB!

The Nationals must have some awesome first-pitch candidates for World Series games if they want Frank Robinson to throw one out in the LDS.

Either that, or they're nervous they won't make it to the World Series.

He doesn't seem to be a fan of the Nationals, based on some of his tweets.

Hope he's enjoying the humble pie, though.

Has barely 700 followers.  We're dealing with a top tier baseball writer, guys.

Paul Swydan is nothing more than a idiot douche based out of a big sports market like Boston.  This makes him think that he actually knows something about baseball when he really doesn't know crap.
We should all troll him next time he does a chat on fangraphs

I'll say what I posted on FB earlier

"CONGATS NATS! NL EAST CHAMPS! - What was that the Braves were going to do? Oh yeah lose so the Nats could win, even if they lost."
