Care to wager on whether the Nats will win a playoff series?

Sure, I'll take no for $10

Temporary. Glad you're waiting to see how the season turns out before putting up.

In my defense, I had been off the grid and this thread dropped off the first page. I do admit to waiting until the Bosox completed their sweep to comment. Where Machado lands could have a big impact on how the NL East race shapes up. The Bravos and Phils are at the top of most rumored suitors lists.

The Nats flat out suck right now. They simply can't hit. Last year you had Murphy, Rendon, Zimmerman and Harper all over .300 Murphy and Zim have missed a huge part of the season and Murphy is taking a while to get back to his form. Zim is done. Rendon is close to getting back to .300 (currently .289) and who knows WTF is wrong with Haper. Soto is the only bright spot now as far as hitters go, but even he is cooling off.

Last year SEVEN players batting .290 or better. This year, three with one on of those on the 60 day DL. :ohno:

They had a players only meeting last night after the sweep. Who knows if it will help.

The Nats are one of the most underachieving teams in recent memory. It is puzzling. April - they sucked. May - they played to form. June - they sucked. Really hard to figure out.

I honestly think the Phillies have been significantly overachieving to this point in the season. Their pitching is pretty solid, but not enough fire power offensively. If they score Machado, that would be a tremendous upgrade at a position of weakness (shortstop) for them. I think they need the help to vie.

I think the Braves are a good team and deserving of where they are in the standings. They will continue to compete for the NL East whether they pick up a big name or not.

Dodgers are in first after scrambling back from a terrible start. D’backs and Rockies are going to have to earn it now.

The Red Sox go into the All Star break with the best record in the Majors...

68 - 30 with a 4.5 game lead over the Yankees...

Not a single NL team has broken the 60 game win mark...3 AL teams have more than 60 wins...

Good start. :nod:

Hopefully it will make the Yankees more willing to give up good talent for pitching help before the trade deadline.

I thought the Rockies were dead at end of June with a 38-42 record, but currently 51-45. Hate to see the break actually.
