We saw a number of surprising results in Week 4 (Tampa Bay upsetting Pittsburgh? Minnesota drilling Atlanta? Dallas routing New Orleans?), could we see more of that this week or more rational action?

Jordan Zimmerman's no-hitter was clinched by this AMAZING catch

Nothing like closing the regular season out with a no-hitter, am I right? Well the Nationals did just that today in Washington as their ace Jordan Zimmerman successfully no-hit the Marlins.
