Rolling to October

Assuming the Braves don’t blow a 9-run lead, they will lead the Nats by 11 games with 54 remaining. If the local nine plays .500 ball the rest of the way Washington would have to go 38-16 just to force a tie.

I’m not ready to celebrate quite yet, with the 2011 collapse still fresh in my mind, but odds are tremendous that the Bravos will have their first division title in 8 years and 17th since relocating to Atlanta 47 years ago.

According to Cool Standings, those odds now stand at 98.5 percent.
