MLB Bullets says goodbye?

Bryce Harper said goodbye as he might have played his last home game in DC. An update on the postseason races and awards. A closer pursues his passion. So does Bartolo Colon.

MLB: Miami Marlins at Washington Nationals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

For your daily Fangraphs playoff odds, I believe it is the first time all season that someone other that the Dodgers is favored to win the NL West. The Rockies are rated with a 60.1% chance to win the division.

The Cubs still are favored in the NL Central with a 77.9% chance. I think that’s high, but they should be favored.

I just had a thought about John Lackey’s career, since he was at the game Thursday night. I wonder what you would have said if on the day he made his MLB debut in 2002, you were told that he’d win a World Series title with the Angels, Red Sox and Cubs? Seems hard to believe from the perspective of June 2002.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
