Nationals

Last week, the Nats looked well poised for a second straight NL East title. But after getting swept in New York by the Mets, experts in Las Vegas are seeing things a bit different.
The Nationals announced when they'll make up last month's rainout against the Reds, and it could prove to be a big game late in September.
The Nationals just got swept by the New York Mets. Is it time to panic, or are they still favorites to win the division?
