Do We Want To FInish Behind the Reds



Would the Nationals be better off finishing behind the Reds? At least they would then have certainty of the opponent and wouldn't face the prospect of flying across the Country (if the Doggers beat the Braves in the Wild Card) on almost

no notice. They would know it would be the Giants and could set up accordingly. They would also leave the "suddenly hot" Braves in position to hopefully cool down and/or deal with the Reds. Mind you, just making the playoffs is a great thing for the Nationals. They are way ahead of schedule by doing so, but it would be even more fun if the Nationals were to actually advance a bit. (And of course, we can all dream about that deep fly ball hit by A Rod with two out, bases loaded and a one run lead that is caught by Bryce Harper (as he turns into an old man right as he makes the catch...) to end the seventh game of the series...)
