So… this year’s season has just passed the 1/5 mark. Lots of baseball left, but if 20 percent of the games is any indicator of the next 80% I’d put the Astros, Twins, and Yankees in the playoff picture with the Orioles picking up with wild card. Personally, that would make a great American League playoff picture. The National League is beyond a guess for sure… the Nats are my pick for the East, Central could go to anyone but the Pirates while the West is a toss up between the Rocks, the Dodgers, and the D-backs. Two observations at this point… the Astros have taken over the Nats as the team with the best record in baseball for 2017 and even though the defending World Series Champs (Cubbies) are in next to last place, they are only 2.5 games out. They are so deep I can’t help believe they will sift to the top of their division by game 162 and make a run for the whole thing again.
Nats take on the Phillies in a double header today. Join the action live from Nationals Park on WMVA-AM1450. Coverage starts at 1:00 PM, first pitch at 1:35 PM.
