Nats Cruisin’ to Sweepstakes Win

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

As unlikely as it sounds, if the Nats were to go 9-4 the rest of the way, it would still be awfully hard for any team to catch them. The Pirates would still have to lose 10 of 14, the O’s would have to lose their last 12 giving them a 17 game losing streak, Cleveland — who has snuck into fourth place with eight straight losses — would still have to lose 14 of the next 13, and Kansas City — after falling from second to fifth place in less than two weeks — would have to lose 14 of 12.

After Monday’s games, the standings:
