Sacrificing virgins to a volcano might have coincided with a great harvest once, doesn't mean it's not stupid to do it now.
As noted, it isn't about the logic, it is about the belief/socialization.

Mind you, this is the same Nats team that blew a 9-0 6th inning lead to the Braves earlier this season, so obviously 5-0 isn't safe.

IMO the Cubs players and coaches were just frustrated about losing and their tempers overheated. Cubs are completely to blame for the fracas. As others have noted, a five run lead certainly isn't the end of a game in baseball. Teams score that many runs in one inning all the time. Maybe if the Nats were up by twelve in the ninth inning then a swing at that pitch would be in bad taste, but as it was, the Nats did nothing wrong.

In any event, no big deal. No one was hurt and the teams are both on to other opponents.

I completely disagree with your view, from what I saw it looked more like a brouhaha than a fracas.
