check out this link for standings according to expected wins

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/st.../standings.php

the Nationals should be last in their division, yet they are in first, its craziness. Baseball is a long season though, and these anamolies have a way of working themselves out over time

(see the Reds of last year as proof)

Maybe, but so far the Nationals has been quite impressive, given that they do not even have an owner!

i for one hope the nationals keep on winning. its a pretty good story and takes attention away from the yankmees.

but mostly i want them to make the playoffs because i think pretty much every other team in the division has a better chance in the playoffs and the nats would be the easiest playoff opponent.

Playing the Phillies this weekend should help that problem.

fourth inning: Gnats 4 - Phils 0

Willis is getting lit up tonight, I think this for sure means Carpenter will start the ASG for the NL.

His ERA is still better than Carpenter's despite the bad start, and their records are identical. I don't think it's for sure at all.

i can guarantee you LaRussa will start Carp

Carpenter will be going on full rest

Piazza is the starting catcher, Willis plus Piazza = free stolen bases, Carpenter hasn't allowed a stolen base since 2003. Plus it would be nice to have Willis work with his own catcher, LaDuca later in the game.

Carpenter has been the best pitcher in all of baseball for the past 6 weeks, in his last 6 starts he's given up only 2 freaking runs.

Carpenter is LaRussa's man

it's going to be Carpenter

Probably, but we'll see.

I do root for him, though, since he's from my state and was born in the town I live in.

What I'm concerned with is if our own irate all-star, Kenneth Rogers, will make the trip.

He really ought not to.

If The Gambler opts not to go, Francona is going to take Clement, I hope.

not that it'll ever happen, but, from the st louis post dispatch

"Believe it or not, Houston's Roger Clemens has the Cardinals on a short list of teams he'd be willing to be traded to. "

Houston is five games out of the wild card, and we all know how well they did in the second half of last season.

You're right, it'll never happen.
