    I think everyone's stressing about the NL Central. The Reds still have a very viable chance at it but one series sweep and it's probably not going happen. Since this thread is more about the division championship, there's been low attendance.

    Astros have been playoff eliminated. Vegas can relax.

    Yeah, but getting in is the first step toward the championship. We've seen plenty of wild card teams win it all. Can't win if you don't get in.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    I'm quite happy to see the update. Here's hoping we do indeed get inside 20.

    Sure, I want them to get in too. However, the wild card is a much harder way to go now than ever. The winning wild card team will have used there best pitcher in the one game playoff, and will not have home field advantage. Up till last year, whoever got the lone wild card went into the playoffs on equal footing with the division winners. Now, the wild card team will be at a real disadvantage. But it will still beat being done...

    So we lose and a wild card team trying to catch us wins and our Magic number goes down? I'm cool with it, but why?
    Attended 1976 World Series in my Mother's Womb. Attended 1990 World Series Game 2 as a 13 year old. Want to take my son to a a World Series Game in Cincinnati in my lifetime.

    because the team closest to us (i.e. the one we have the magic number over) lost. Doesn't yet matter what the Nats do for magic number purposes until they pass the D-backs.

    Or if you want, we can say the magic number over the Nats stayed at 20 after today's action.

    Let's not forget about The Chief.

    "In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
