Baker with clutch insight:

How does this impact the M's? Well, the Nats are now an organization in disarray. Not exactly where you want to be as you go about figuring out whether to draft San Diego State pitcher Stephen Strasburg with your No. 1 overall pick.

Awesome. Taking this logical tack a bit further:

* If the 2009 World Series isn't won by one of the 29 teams not named "Mariners", then the M's have a clear shot at the Commissioner's Trophy. *
