I've now officially become a Washington Nationals fan. You see they've played tremendous baseball this final week of the season. They swept the first place team by outscoring them by 100 runs.
They're able to get unbelievable performances from starting pitchers who are career minor leaguers. And their bullpen is pretty good.
Who would realize they are the second to last place team?
But now it's up to the Nationals to salvage the Mets season. We need a win from them today because I'm pretty confident that the Phillies will not lose if it comes down to the last game of the season.
So what's the catch? Ah, yes. The catch is the Mets have to win too. That's the tougher part of the equation if you ask me.
