The Nats magic number is 12. Any sum of DC wins and Atlanta losses adding to 12 will guarantee the Nats win the division. Washington has 7 games left against the Mets and a win percent of .777 against those same Mets. That estimates about 5 more Nats wins. DC has 8 remaining games against the Marlins and a win percent of .666 against said Marlins. That’s another 5 wins to make 10 total. That means that Atlanta can, by a good estimate, lose at most 2 of their remaining 18 games to win the division. Or 1 game against the Nats because it would also guarantee another Nats win, so it counts double. And there are five of those double trouble games left.
My favorite Washington Nationals are playing Inter-league games against the Baltimore Orioles. They are considered inter-league rivals and play a series in D. C. and a series in Baltimore each year and it’s a fun little rivalry, particularly now that both teams are relatively good. All MLB teams should have inter-league rivals like this so I am going to hand them out now.
Crosstown and Neighbor City Rivals
New York Mets and New York Yankees. The Bronx Bombers and the Flushing Fighters would have a popular subway series.
Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox. This crosstown rivalry could cause chaos in the Windy City.
Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. A rivalry to determine the best team in Tinsel Town of Anaheim.
San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics. The nature of these two teams could easily be a symbol of gentrification in the area and be the heart of a great rivalry.
Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles. I already mentioned this so called beltway series. I did spend five minutes looking up the difference between orioles and robins before writing this. True facts.
Instate and Neighbor State Rivals
Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians. Porkopolis vs. the Forest City. Which Buckeye is Best!?
St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals. Turns out both cities are in Missouri.
Florida Marlins and Tampa Bay Rays. Time to decide who shines brightest in the Sunshine State.
Milwaukee Brewers and Minnesota Twins. Cheese vs Lakes. When will they compromise and give me lakes of cheese?
And the Rest!? AKA They Can’t All Be Gems!
San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners. Which west coast city starting with “S” is best? (Other than San Francisco I guess)
Arizona Diamondbacks and Houston Astros. Which city can deny it’s Latino heritage more?
Colorado Rockies and Texas Rangers. Let’s face it, no other team in the MLB is near Denver so they get the only remaining team west of the Mississippi.
Pittsburgh Pirates and Detroit Tigers. Both are longtime MLB teams in blue collar towns. They can make a rivalry in spite of the distance.
Philadelphia Phillies and Boston Red Sox. This one might be dangerous as both towns have very surly sports fans. This might make a good rivalry but maybe some bad riots.
Atlanta Braves and Toronto Blue Jays. This is probably the worst one. It’ll end with good ole boys with Confederate flags yelling xenophobic nonsense in a show of false patriotism while the Canadians just apologize for nothing.
There they are, the Inter-league Rivals. Fate conspired to arrange their battle. Speaking rivals, bring back Rival Schools. That game was pretty fun and fighting games are popular again thanks to online play.
Please stop posting about science you don't personally research. There IS legitimate debate about climate change and what causes it. We debate humanities role in it. The amount of green house gases released by certain natural rocks dwarfs all of humanities gas output. We debate whether we stand at the edge of a normal climate cycle. Much like the ice ages. We are overdue by thousands of years for a climate shift. I don't argue we should take better care of our earth, but 97% is wrong.
Take a deep breath.
Smell that natural rock air.
I didn’t know that global warming could be caused by humanities, the academic fields of language, philosophy, religion, preforming an visual arts, history, and anthropology. Curse you humanists!
