Mets Poised to Put Nats in Rearview

Though the New York Mets overtook the Washington Nationals in the standings over a week ago, only just now have they caught up with their rivals in Potomac in terms of true talent. As of today, the Mets and Nats are neck-and-neck on the RPScore leaderboard. The last time the Metropolitans had rated better than the Nationals was all the way back on April 29 of this season.

There's still plenty of season left, but the preseason World Series favorites are digging themselves quite a hole just as the Mets are loading up on wins. At present, I'm projecting the Nats to finish five games behind the Mets, six games behind the fifth wild card, and out of the playoffs.
