Starting to get a bit of a gap to 8-10. 

Cubs at Twins tonight.  Royals  host the Future Guardians while Rox visit Rangers and Fish are at the NYM.

Losing pains me. The last two games, against the Fillies, are the worst. Here's hoping Rizzo finds two starting pitchers in November and maybe a right-handed bat.

pirates, at 48 wins, are 5-5 over their last ten. They currently hold the #4 slot.

can't be caught.  7.5 ahead of us. 

Only winner among the 6 we track last night was the Cubs.  So, we've opened a 2 game gap to #7.  Tied on wins with Miami, which has banked 2 losses more than us.

Are there a half dozen players who at this point stand out as the likely top selections next year?  Things will change to some extent of course, but are there any players we should be particularly excited about?

This was more than a month ago.  So pay no attention to the teams next to the players. Of course things will change.

As we head past labor day, I am invoking a new "relevancy rule" to drop tracking of teams that are more than 5 games ahead or behind the Nats in the Tankathon.  Therefore, no longer listed are the Cubs and Rockies, who are 6 and 6.5 games behind the Nats in the draft choice race.  KC is on the fringe of relevancy. Texas and Pittsburgh still out of range at 8 and 8.5 games in front.

With the Pirates, Marlins, and Rockies left on the schedule, they can make some real headway

This has strength of remaining schedule.  Nats have a bit easier than Miami rest of the way.

Big night in the Tankathon yesterday as Fish, Royals, and Rox all win while Nats and Twins lose. 

5    Washington   58-82   .414   13.0   Lost 1   3-7
6    Miami        59-81   .421   14.0   Won 2   5-5
7    Minnesota    62-78   .443   17.0   Lost 1   5-5
8    Kansas City   63-77   .450   18.0   Won 1   4-6

Rox are at 18.5, while the Nats now are as close to the Cubs (#10 at 19.5) as they are to the Rangers (#4 at 6.5) - .

Getting swept by the Pirates seems like a good way to get there.

The big picture:

3    Pittsburgh   52-91   .364   6.0   Lost 1   4-6
4    Texas         53-89   .373   7.5   Won 2   6-4
5    Washington   59-84   .413   13.0   Won 1   4-6
6    Miami         60-83   .420   14.0   Lost 1   5-5
7    Minnesota    63-80   .441   17.0   Lost 1   5-5
8    CHI Cubs    65-79   .451   18.5   Lost 3   6-4
9    Kansas City   65-78   .455   19.0   Won 1   6-4
10    Colorado   66-78   .458   19.5   Won 1   5-5

Using 7 games as the cut, I've added in Pittsburgh and Texas, who are 3 & 4, in part to show we are almost as likely to move up from 5th as we are to drop to 10th or 9th at this point. Colors are for teams within 5 games of us.

I would love the laugh but it hurts more that we got swept by them before the deadline, which, probably was the nail in the coffin for this season.

closer to #4 than #8.  Don't know whether :smh: or  :woop: is more appropriate.
