And so, LivingSocial has stepped up and will foot the $29,000 bill for late night Metro service during the Nationals playoff run, after Ted Lerner, Metro, and DC all balked. Good on ya, LivingSocial.

Video: Braves celebrate playoff clinch like they just won the World Series

And so, while the Nationals mostly downplayed their clinch of a playoff berth last week, the Braves celebrated theirs last night like they just won the World Series. Video evidence above (via AJC.com). Good for them for blowing off some steam. Wonder if the Nats could've used some of that, eh Davey? Magic number stuck at five; NL East lead down to four. No pressure. ...

Here's to hoping the Nats get to wear shirts like this in Philadelphia

So Washington Nationals 2012 NL East Division Champs t-shirts exist, seen in this pic posted on Twitter by @bscrafford. That's kind of scary. But with the magic number at 5 entering tonight, and given the remaining possible clinch scenarios, none is sweeter than the possibility of the Nats spraying champagne around the visitors clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park on Thursday...

Video: Bryce Harper's bazooka arm strikes again

  So Friday night's Curly W went up in smoke in the 9th inning. The good news is, Tyler Clippard has a few weeks to figure sh-t out; and there's always Drew Storen if he can't. Meanwhile, we'd be remiss if we didn't relive the glory of Bryce Harper gunning down Ryan Braun at the plate with his bazooka arm in the fourth inning. MLB.com video above and here...
