Just the first of many for them.

The Nats made a mistake not celebrating their playoff birth. May have been their last chance.

So we win the division?

Atlanta pulled victory from the jaws of defeat tonight (and Marvin Hudson was umpiring in that game).  I'm getting quite a bit more worried the more I think about it.  But we're still in a good position:

If we go 5-3 or better, we win the division
If we go 4-4, Braves need to go 8-0 to force a tie
If we go 3-5, Braves need to go 7-1 to force a tie or 8-0 to win
If we go 2-6, Braves need to go 6-2 to force a tie or 7-1 to win
If we go 1-7, Braves need to go 5-3 to force a tie or 6-2 to win

No clue. Looks about 50/50 to me. We win 3-4 games tops the rest of the way. That means Atlants needs to lose twice.

I'll bet on Atlanta losing 2 or fewer games for the rest of the reg season.  Avi bet for the offseason

I'll take this bet but I'd rather wager posting privileges for the postseason.

I actually like this.  I hate Fatlanta with such a passion, the closer they get before they fail, the better.

No but we shouldn't have to play a division Rival 9x in one month with the WS champion in between.  Meanwhile.other NL east play, thee braves ply rivals 6x at most.
