I see the game as one that determines which team gets to be a playoff team.
Washington D.C. ballclub clinches first postseason berth since 1933 - local D.C. media says "What the hell is 'baseball''"?
So I guess there will be some kind of "wildcard"ish memorabilia.
Is Joey B the ONLY Nats fan here? Can we have ONE person express some sort of happiness when the Nats accomplish something, instead of responding with \"#### you, DC sports media" and \"#### you, Jim Riggleman"?
Chris Needham is a Nats fan and I think BourbonSamurai is.
I'm happy for Nats fans and everyone in the organization. Nevertheless, this piece of news makes me nostalgic of a time when I still had a baseball team to root for.
Believe it or not, Rick Sutcliffe of all people did. Other than Davey and Sutcliffe, I'm not aware of anyone else prominent who went on record with that prediction before the season.
I certainly hope that whoever loses the play-in game has the banner says something semi-generic like "Playoff Appearance" and not something stupid like "Second Wild Card Champion".
Davey Johnson didn't merely disagree. He outright announced that the front office should fire him if the Nats failed to make the postseason in 2012. That's how confident he was in this team, and in his ability as a talent evaluator. That's some damn near Rollins-esque stuff, right there.

I predict at least one of these will be correct.
Plenty of people here picked the Nationals to make the playoffs.
EDIT: Which actually makes me think...what are the things we all got wrong, in retrospect, about the Nats?

3. I never ever thought Gio Gonzalez would do this. At the time of the deal there were rumors that the Red Sox were going to trade for him and I was so glad they didn't. He walks too many people, he's a beneficiary of Oakland, he's going to leave there and suck. Yeah, score one for me
Were they celebrating in Montreal?
This is a huge understatement. 7 of the 10 richest counties in the US are in the DC suburbs.
A big factor is going to be how much money Angelos ends up being eventually forced to give the team going forward, because he has made it abundantly clear that he has no intention whatsoever of voluntarily giving them anything close to fair market value.
Loudoun, Fairfax, Arlington, Prince William, Montgomery and.......?
No way is Fauquier in the Top 10. Unless something insane has happened there in the last two to three years.
Basically there's lots of money in the area
Why don't I have any?
