Braves up 5-2 in the 6th over Toronto. If they win, there will be a 4 way tie for first in the NL east.

It is either the best division or the worst. I think these teams are just beating one another up. Too lazy to do the research so this is just a mind fact ( are they still allowed).

I calculated 28-38 outside the division.  Cumulatively they are 10 games below .500.  Not so good.

Nats in sole possession of first. At least until Mets-Phillies tonight.

Who are we hoping for or against?   Seems like the Mets are the bigger threat with their pitching.   But they don't seem to be able to use that to win games.   Are the Braves still the team to beat?

One way to look at it is that basically the first month was a wash. The biggest news probably are the injuries. Fried and Strasburg, Soroka still out, Soto. Acuna playing like an MVP.  If you think the Mets offense is permanently busted, that's huge.

Thinking about it, I would not mind the Phillies winning.  They already have 14 losses. I'd like to tack another loss onto the Mets. Get them to 12, where we are.

Given our injuries and the start of the season, being where we are is pretty good.

If the Phillies win tonight, they will have been 6-6, 7-7, 8-8, 9-9, 10-10, 11-11, 12-12, 13-13, and 14-14

We have 4 games at hand on them. We take care of business, that works. Need to tack losses onto the Mets, because if they figure things out, they are more trouble, and they have games at hand on us

It made my day to hear that Travis d'Arnaud was put on the 60-day IL.  You don't turn into Johnny Bench overnight at his age without the help of illicit substances.

Mets fire their hitting coach.  The pressure is getting ratcheted up in NY.

And they've managed to lose 3 of his 5 starts despite him allowing 2 runs in total.  They are excellent at Metsing.

And the game was rained out.  But I lost the bet anyway from the Nats losing.
