MLB Handicapping: Washington Nationals about to step up in class

04.29.2016     07:02 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
We don't often talk about strength of schedule when it comes to MLB but here's an interesting take on the Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves. The Nationals are off to a 14-7 start -- 14-4 prior to losing three straight to the Phillies. Check out who they've played: Atlanta (6 games), Philadephia (6 games), Miami (6 games), and Minnesota (3 games). The Nats' schedule is about to get significantly tougher with a 10-game road swing against St. Louis, Kansas City, and the Chicago Cubs. The Braves are on the complete opposite end of the spectrum. They've faced Washington (6 games), St. Louis (3 games), Miami (3 games), the Los Angeles Dodgers (3 games) and Boston (4 games). This doesn’t change the fact that the Nationals are legitimate contenders in the NL East and the Braves are the worst team in baseball. But both teams’ schedules have played a role in the somewhat extreme results.
