At least the Nats, Mets, Phillies have the Marlins to beat up, and the Brewers, Cardinals, Cubs get to beat up on the Pirates (who have been atrocious since the All Star game) to get some wins.

NL is parity central. 7 teams within .030 of .500 as of now. Mets game not over yet.

Default 58-53

Welp, at least Shane Greene hasn't been pitching too great for the Braves since arriving from the Tigers, and the Phillies lost a home series to the White Sox (LOL) because the Nats have not been very good. 2-2-3 in 7 series since the All Star and 3-7 in their last 10 games. Joe Ross and the malaigned bullpen 1 hit Arizona to open the series Friday night and than Strasburg & Corbin bombed the last 2, first time since 2011 the D'Backs have won the season series against the Nats. Onto San Francisco where we have Anibal Sanchez, Erick Fedde and Joe Ross starting and than onto Queens to finish the road trip. At the rate the Mets are playing, Mets may be in second place by this time next week.

Mets so far are doing what Nats did, beat up bad teams.

The WCs will be decided IMO by head-head play.

Mets have 30 games left vs contenders, but 21 are home games.

Its definitely interesting watching NL teams go up and down.

LAD being awesome is the one constant.

No matter the rest of the pack, they are the NL favorite.

Congrats. Nats overall IMO played fairly well this weekend. Its tough to win away.

I hope Soto is not IL bound.

J. Guerra (two of them) won and lost Saturday's Nats-Brewers game. Must be a first in MLB history!

Where's Jayson Stark for his useless info when we need him?? Great game! I hope my Fubo DVR recorded everything and didn't cut out before it ended. Usually they run for about 5 hours, so that's scary, may catch it on MLB.TV instead. Probably a game the Nats didn't deserve to win anyways: down 5-0 in the 3rd, 8-5 in the 6th, and go up 11-8 in the 9th only to see Doo blow it. Instant classic one way or another, will definitely be one of the top 5 games of the year, and has a strong case for #1.
