Damn, it hadn't occurred to me until now but unless you're in your 80's this is the first time any of us have experienced a pennant race. So it's new and exciting territory for fans of all ages.

I'm guessing that his shoulder hurts more than he is letting on.

It's in his head.  You can see it - his shoulder may hurt but he's definitely not throwing the ball with any confidence either.

Well there was '94.  Oh wait, no there wasn't.

I figured 85 or 86 wins this year.  I'm already wrong and happy about it, plus the Astros are on a pace to lose more games than they did last year.

So what's best and worst case scenario of the size of the division lead after this series against the Braves?

If we sweep the Braves the wild card is clinched. Best case, up 11. Worst case, up 5.

It's not really a pennant race if we're comfortably ahead in first place 8)

OK, great job by Lannan,more later,I can't take many more close games. The aspirin by the bedside won't save me.Burnett ain't healed. Great moves by Davy. Why can't we score runs when the bases are loaded. Last nite and tonite. Lannan pitched better tonite than the last 5 starts by our vaunted "best in baseball" starters.

Bernie shouldn't start. Better off the bench.Our 'pen is just OK. It is not lights out loke the first half..Remember when we were flirting with 20 games over. I felt I had died and gone to heaven. We are now 35 games over and I am assuming the Braves lost tonite. 8 1/2 games ahead and the magic number is ELEVEN.

We win even when we leave the bases loaded multiple times.  Mind you, I'm not complaining.

Even though we should have blown the game open in the sixth and/or seventh, I still had a great time.  I went up to NYC yesterday to hang out with an old friend, then met welch before the game last night.  Citi Field is a pretty nice park and there were a lot of fellow Nats fans there.  Well, fun's over as it's off to work now...

This 89th win pulls this year's edition just a bit further up:

99 - 1933 [pennant winner]
96 - 1925 [pennant winner]
94 - 1930
93 - 1932
92 - 1924 [World Series winner], 1931
91 - 1912
90 - 1913
89 - 2012
87 - 1945
86 - 1969

THIS DAY WITH THE '05 OVERACHIEVERS: Monday 12th September 2005 was a travel day, heading into a Mets/Padres road trip.

Nats do seem to love them some Citi Field...21-15 there all-time and 8-1 this season.

About 90 years old. My dad remembers the 1933 team...he was 12, and he's now 91 years old.

My daughter and I were in the Nats section: 126. lower seats, about midway between Nats dugout and Roger Sharkadina / tyler Moore in LF. Nats season ticket holder to our left, guy with Harper shirt and red curly-W right behind us. Almost a dozen Curly-Ws in front. We were all polite. Mets fans were despondent. And usher said "Good luck in the post season"

On one of the earlier radio broadcasts of this series it seemed there were a lot of Nats supporters up there (audible applause for Nats scores etc - place was a bit over half-full, or at least half-sold, for all three fixtures).
