To stimulate more fan interest in the Nats, I thought we might watch the race for next year's first round draft pick.
The Nats are still in first place with a .649 winning, or should I say losing average, on track for a 105 game losing record. In 2nd place, 4 1/2 games back are the KC Royals with a .614 average. In 3rd place and closing fast, is none other than B-Orioles , 8 games back with a .588 average. In 4th place, are the Pitt Pirates with a .586 average, 9 games back.
If both the Nats and the O's finish 1, 2 in this race, this will make MLB very happy since they said our area can't support two teams. I wonder if we could combine teams, but then 0 + 0 = 0.
If the Nats get first round pick next year, it will be 3 years in a row. Is this a new major league record? This might add even more interest in this last month of baseball.
