Until their mathematically eliminated, I will always think they have a chance.

Wow guess I was wrong but they still have a way to go 4-4.5 games!

They won't go away. I just knew they were losing that first game today, but they came through in the 9th. What a day of baseball in DC! The Reds are doing their job too though.

Unless we get the wildcard deficit to 3 by Friday (which would mean Nats winning Wednesday & Thursday and Reds losing Wednesday), I think the only way they still have a chance is if Pittsburgh wins 5/6 vs. Cincinnati these next 11 days. Cardinals next week will be tough since they might still be fighting in the Central. Even if Pittsburgh loses all 6 to Cincinnati, that'll get us tied with the Pirates having 2 games left vs. the Padres and 3 games at the Cubs in addition to the 6 vs. the Reds, and the Nats going to St. Louis and Arizona to finish the season. I'm never giving up until our tragic number is 0, and today really helped us, but still need A LOT of help our way. Was hoping Bo Porter could help out his old employer this week.

yeah .... more interesting than many other teams that are hoping that none of their core players get hurt and that their call ups show some sign of a pulse, but they've been realistically out of this thing for a while

they've played hot which is half of the equation, but the 2nd part that requires someone else to collapse isn't there .... using the baseball prospectus projections the Nats have a 3% chance ...... it's not enough for them to just win at this point, they need the Reds to lose

The Braves beat Washington today and a few minutes ago the Reds finally beat Houston in 13 innings, 6-5. That places the Nationals 5.5 games back with 10 games remaining, the Reds have 9 games to go.

If Washington wins all of its remaining games, that would be 91 wins. The Reds would reach 91 wins by winning 4 out 9.

If the Reds should lose all of their final games, they wind up with 87 wins. The Nationals would need to go 6-4 to win 87.

The magic number is now 5, any combination of 5 Reds wins or 5 Nationals losses and it is over.

So, not dead, but in ICU on life support.

After tonight, the Nats best chance is for the Pirates to finish the season in a tailspin. Reds get the Mets at home in between the Pirates series, can't see them losing any of those games but stranger things have happened (like the Reds losing 2/3 to the Cubs at home after going 6-1 against the Dodgers & Cardinals). With the way the Pirates are playing right now, the Reds could sew up a bid pretty soon.
