With the :w: posted, we honor our friend Old Chelsea with the traditional post that tracks the Nats wins to date, in Anglophile style.

THE RACING PRECEDENTS: Comparative dates on which the Nationals notched their 63rd win, each season:

2017 - 31st July (104th match of season)
2016 - 2nd August (107th match)
2012 - 3rd August (105th match)
2014 - 9th August (115th match)
2019 - 12th August (118th match)
2005 - 15th August (118th match)
2018 - 21st August (126th match)
2013 - 22nd August (127th match)
2015 - 25th August (124th match)
2011 - 30th August (133rd match)
2007 - 5th September (140th match)
2023 - 6th September (140th match)
2006 - 12th September (145th match)
2010 - 21st September (151st match)
2021 - 22nd September (152nd match)

---
2022- finished 55-107 (.340)
2009 - finished 59-103 (.364)
2008 - finished 59-102 (.366)
2020 - finished 26-34 (.433)

Recent skid hurt the 2023's win pace relative to 2006-07 and 2010-11. To get to 80 wins (2011), Nats would need to go 17-5 down the stretch. OTOH, 2007's 73 win mark would be met with an 10-12 finish. Nats next win milestone is 2021 (65) then 2010 (69).

At 384 wins as manager of the Nats, Davey is 1 win from tying Frank Robinson for 4th in wins as an Expo /Nat franchise manager.
