Pretenders. The Nats got to climb back in because they basically played against the dregs of baseball. Easy pickings.

But it's not sustainable with the pen the way it is. You can't expect Scherzer to continue this tear. Eaton isn't going to continue to hit over .300. Rizzo won't trade major prospects away at the deadline, and ownership won't authorize exceed the luxury tax threshold. The pen will lose too many games to hold the WC spot.
