The Ringer | Zach Kram: Just a few short months ago, the Nationals looked bad...really bad. Kram takes a look at how the team has turned it around, and is well-positioned to host the NL wild card game.

FanGraphs | Win Expectancy: After a five-run top of the ninth inning for the Mets, fans of both teams could have been excused for calling it a night. Not so fast though, as the Nats pulled one of the most improbable wins of the season out from under New York.

Baseball Prospectus ($) | Matthew Trueblood: The Braves are the likeliest team to take on the Dodgers for the NL pennant, are they positioned to give LA a run for their money?

FanGraphs | Devan Fink: Beyond the Boxscore alum, Devan Fink makes the case that a recent surge by Nationals’ third baseman Anthony Rendon should earn him consideration for NL MVP.
