Chien-Ming Wang will make the last start of his season, but it seems increasingly likely it will not be his final appearance as a National. Wang has expressed his appreciation for and comfort with the Nationals, and Manager Davey Johnson has consistently said he thinks Wang can help the Nationals. “I love where he’s at,” Johnson said. “I hope we sign him over the winter and he’ll be back with us next year.”
Wang will have his chance to make an imprint on a playoff race. The Braves enter today three games ahead of the Cardinals in the NL wild card race. The Nationals may have to win if they want to avoid watching the Braves celebrate on their home field.
As always, talk about the game right here.
