Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals – Box Score – August 07, 2013 – ESPN

This isn’t really a recap, because — whom are we kidding? — the scores and the individual game results don’t really matter anymore. The Braves have buried the second-place team in the East in early August. So, I’m just going to offer a list of things I like:

– A locked-in Justin Upton
– A locked-in (?) BJ Upton (!)
– Vintage, or at least near-vintage, Kris Medlen
– Elite, home-grown or acquired-for-nothing relievers
– A steady stream of third-base-playing CJs who contend for batting titles
– Knocking All-Star starters out after four innings, even though he’s only given up four two runs
Andrelton Simmons, fielding his position
Jason Heyward, scoring from first on a double
– Thirteen(13)-game winning streaks
– Nats fans’ tears
