The Nationals defeated the Brewers on Monday night in THRILLING fashion in order to advance to the NLDS. They will face the Dodgers this Thursday night.

Our friend Eric Stephen wrote a nice piece about the four teams to win 100 games this season. You can read that story here.

If you’re a fan of one of baseball’s division winners in 2019, congratulations. Odds are you are rooting for a team that won 100 games. Four of the six MLB division titlists this season have reached the century mark, with only the Braves and Cardinals failing to hit triple-digits from that group.

The Astros, Dodgers, Yankees, and Twins all won 100 games. Four is the most 100-win teams in a single season ever, but what makes this even more incredible is that it’s the first time we’ve had at least three 100-win teams in three straight years.

Justin Turner, Joe Kelly and Rich Hill are all set to go for the NLDS, Dave Roberts announced on Tuesday. wrote a piece about managerial rumors, going through options for each team.
