leave a comment »

Team vs Wash vs FL Vs StL vs ATL vs SD vs Wash vs FL vs STL vs ATL vs SD vs NL
Wash 1-2 2-1 3-0 3-0 1-2 wk 18 1-2 2-1 13-8
Florida 2-1 1-2 3-0 3-0 2-1 1-2 wk 18 2-1 14-7
StL 1-2 2-1 1-2 2-1 wk18 2-1 3-0 1-2 12-9
FL vs WSH 4-2
StL vs FL 4-2
WSH vs StL 2-1

As it currently stands Washington (28-20) leads Florida (29-22) by 1/2 game.  St Louis is 26-22 and 2 games behind Washington.

Washington & St Louis each have 6 games to play. Florida 3.  Washington and St Louis play each other week 18.

Washington wins the division: If Washington wins 5 of 6 games. If Washington wins 4 of 6 (in any combination), Washington wins the division if Florida only wins 2 of 3 vs Atlanta.  Washington loses the head to head tie breaker vs Florida if they end in a two-way tie with the same record.

Florida wins the division: Florida can only win the division in two ways. 1: Outright with the best record. 2: In a two-way tiebreaker with Washington.  Florida loses the two-way tie breaker with Atlanta and if their is a 3 way tie for the division (which would mean STL defeated Washington wk 18) STL would win the division.

St Louis wins the division: St Louis wins the division if he wins his remaining six games and finishes with 32 wins.  This would mean that Washington lost at least 3 and STL would hold the tie breaker vs FL.
