Magic number 17, but it should be 16 if the Mets werent such chokers.


But it brings up a crazy 14 game run


4 vs Was
4 @ Phi
3 @ Was
3 vs Phil

Winning 2 at each series would take the magic number down to 3 for the NL east without any outside help. Braves really need 9 games out of the next 14 to feel like a clinch is inevitable, but a 3-1 start vs the Nats would put enormous pressure on the Nats

I would even say a break even record over that stretch is a moral victory. Anything above .500 is gravy.

It really depends on where those 7 wins are. If all 7 are to the Phillies then it really does us no good at the eastern crown, and brings our playoff magic number to 9 while leaving the east in jeapordy. If all 7 are against the Nats then it clinches the playoffs and brings the eastern title clinch to 3. Its more important that we take atleast 4 from the Nats at the very least. The Phillies are really only an issue if we make them an issue, but 9 wins over this 14 should be the minimum goal.

Braves are still 4.5 games behind the Dodgers for home field. Need LA to lose a couple more to shrink that margin.

Magic number is 13. This series is shocking, and shocking in a good way. It really is starting to seem like the Braves are starting to prepare for a serious march towards October, while it seems the Nats are finally running out of gas from a long comeback to get to October.

Magic number is 10
And 3 games behind the Dodgers. Unfortunately, they play the Orioles, Mes, Rays, Rockies, Padres, and Giants to finish out the season. Only the Rays are 5+ games above .500. The Mets are 3 games over .500. That's it.

Meanwhile, the Braves finish with Phillies, Nats, Phillies, Giants, Royals, and Mets. Royals and Giants are the only ones below .500.

Braves are going to win their division, and if they stay hot they can beat anyone in the playoffs. They are not the best team in MLB, or even the NL, but they are scoring runs in droves, even against good pitchers.
