Nats Clinch Playoff Spot!

Baseball returned to DC in 2005. The Nats flirted with the division title before fading and finishing 81-81. Tonight the Nats beat the Dodgers and clinched Washington's first playoff berth since 1933! They're not done, they are trying to win the National League East Division and their lead over the Braves by 5 and a half games. Magic Number is 8.

I would love to see the Nats go to the World Series. It has been almost 30 years since I personally went to my last World Series (1983 Orioles vs Phillies). Over in the American League, the Orioles are battling the Yankees for the division title.

Could we see the Nats and Orioles play in the Fall Classic? Stay tuned!
