Looking at the National League race, you see three teams in a struggle for the two wild-card spots, the St. Louis Cardinals, the New York Mets, and the San Francisco Giants. Looking at the updated ZiPS projections for players based on their performance-to-date, the Cardinals, based on the roster they have, should have already put away one of the wild-card spots.One way a team can control its own destiny is to win the games it is supposed to win. Sure, your average emergency starter from Triple-A called up when your ace pays a visit to Dr. James Andrews will occasionally beat Clayton Kershaw, but thats not the way to bet. You cant count on winning those games as a long-term strategy. The Cardinals this season are underperforming in those easy games more than the Mets or the Giants. In fact, the Cards have more extra losses due to this phenomenon than any contending team in baseball.Using the updated ZiPS projections for expected player performance -- updated projections are a better estimate of a players true level of ability than preseason projections since we know a lot more about 2016 now -- I went back and projected the probability of each team winning every game this season, based on the starting pitchers, the lineup, and the bench/bullpen players available in those games.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. -- Alex Burnett felt a familiar thrill of getting to see the Atlanta Braves he had rooted for since he was a kid on the field. It meant even more with the Braves playing the Miami Marlins in an historic game at Fort Bragg -- where the Sgt. 1st Class Burnett is stationed with the 82nd Airborne Division.Ive been watching the Atlanta Braves play since I was 12 years old back when they were playing at Fulton-County Stadium in Atlanta, and just to see this team come out here and do this for us, its just overwhelming, the Atlanta native said Sunday. We cant be thankful enough.One of 162 regular-season games for both teams, it had much more significance as the first regular-season game of a major professional sport played on an active military installation. The Marlins won 5-2.It was just an unbelievable experience, Braves interim manager Brian Snitker said. Were going to take nothing but really good memories away from the night.The game capped a busy day for players and Major League Baseball officials long before the Braves and Marlins began play on a field that didnt even exist roughly four months earlier, when MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred promised a unique event in honor of the military for the Fourth of July holiday weekend.By Sunday evening, it looked the part, with soldiers mingling with players around the edge of the field during batting practice. While Marlins star Giancarlo Stanton autographed a couple of baseballs, Marlins hitting coach Barry Bonds stood a few feet away near the dugout shaking hands and posing for photos with soldiers.As the first pitch drew near, soldiers unfurled a giant American flag in the outfield for the singing of the national anthem. That was punctuated by four Army helicopters staging a low diamond-formation flyover from beyond the centerfield wall to the newly constructed press box to roars from the crowd filling the temporary bleachers around the field.They brought baseball to these soldiers, said Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, the commander of the sprawling U.ddddddddddddS. Army post in the sandhills of North Carolina.Bragg and MLB officials had worked since March to build the stadium on the site of an abandoned former golf course. The $5 million project was financed by MLB and the players association to create a ballpark with temporary seating holding 12,500, with a reported attendance Sunday night of 12,582.Workers laid Bermuda grass sod, followed by the field, in May. The project also included a drainage system that will remove 8 to 10 inches of water per hour. It looked like it would get a workout with rain forecast into the evening, but conditions remained dry all night.The final product was a field that players association executive director Tony Clark said looks like its been here forever. Afterward, the bleachers will be removed and the field will be converted into use for recreational play.When I got here and saw it for the first time in person, I have to say I was just blown away by the quality of the field itself, Manfred said. The playing surface, the quality of the scoreboard, just the overall feel of the facility was really beyond what I expected.Players and MLB officials also made several stops around the Army post. Players visited a parachute packing facility. Manfred, Clark and MLB chief baseball officer Joe Torre went to the Fisher House, which provides military families with housing close to loved ones during hospitalizations.During that stop, Manfred, Torre and Clark met people whose family members had used the facility. When one woman told them she didnt follow baseball all that closely and thought at least one game she attended was quite long, Torre was quick with a quip.If you have a complaint, the Hall of Famer said, pointing to Manfred, heres the commissioner of baseball.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardap Jerseys NFL Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap ' ' '
