The Nats are playing with so little heart that Keith needs to take some time away from watching games. In that time, enough baseball will occur where the narrative will likely change. In football, if you turn away for a few days guess what? We’re still talking about last week’s game! Therein lies NFL’s paradox: you can’t turn away (but you totally could because the conversation doesn’t change)! Abomination: playoffs. Baseball’s playoff race is at the nominal end of its multi-week crescendo toward excitement! NFL’s playoff race begins at week 1 but is mostly decided by some weird formula. Another paradox! According to physics it shouldn’t exist. We agree!!
