The Math Doesn’t Look Good

Though the Nats won last night (August 22) their mathematical odds of making the playoffs got worse.  That may seem counter-intuitive, but it is due to the Mets also winning and the number of remaining games decreasing by one.

Both teams have easy schedules for the remainder of the season.  That’s a non-mathematical reason working against the Nats making the playoffs:)
