Are the Nationals a lock for the post season, or what?
Our neighbors to the north, the Baltimore Orioles are selling playoff tickets for the Birds.
The Nationals lead the National League East by six games over the Atlanta Braves, while the Orioles trail the New York Yankees by five games in the American League East. If the season ended today, the O's would be in the post season, thanks to the additional wild card teams added this season.
For the first time in 15 years, the Orioles will be sending out postseason ticket invoices to plan holders starting Thursday morning. All season ticketholders should get the invoices — making them eligible to buy tickets to all levels of potential playoffs at Camden Yards — by next week, and perhaps as early as Friday.
Can you imagine a Beltway Series? A teen party led by Bryce Harper and Manny Machado!
