Gotta be tough to be a Nationals fan. But for a young fan base not sure how frustrating it can really be. I've been waiting since 1992 for the Dodgers to win the WS (wasn't a fan until 92).

Future IMO looks pretty tough too. I expect the Braves & Phillies to be .500+ teams for awhile now & if the Marlins rebuild the right way you have to think they will be relevant in 2-3 seasons.

Rizzo has chucked in the towel, so I may as well throw it in too.

Matt Adams to the Cardinals, Daniel Murphy to the Cubs, Bryce Harper claimed by the Dodgers, but the team pulled him back (why?? You have given up with the Murphy & Adams trades, why not trade Harper??)

Mercy on LA. They have good clubhouse chemistry. Getting Harper would be a huge mistake for them.

Look at the Machado trade. Great player no doubt, but they were doing pretty well with the "misfits" if you will, the Max Muncy's, Kiki Hernandez, Chris Taylor's filling in for Seager and filling in quite nicely probably better than most people would have thought. They've been absolute crap for the most part the last month. IMO Dodgers would have been much better off going after Britton instead.

First time since 2007 Murphy on neither roster as Nats-Mets meet.

Getting shut out by Aaron Nola?? Ok, that's fine as if not for a historic season for deGrom and another great season for Scherzer Nola would be the Cy Young winner. Getting shut out on by a pitcher with a 7+ ERA who wouldn't even be in the rotation for the freaking 90 loss Royals if he still pitched there than that's embarrassing. They had 2 good wins vs. the under belly of the Phillies bullpen and what did they do with all that momentum from the 2 out walkoff Zim homer on Wednesday?? Oh, they just popped their own balloon! Shut out over the next 18 innings.

.500 or so last few months. Mediocre is how I describe 2018 Nats.

Whoops. Make that 27 straight innings of scoreless baseball. This is embarrassing! Do nothing on July 31, trade away your best hitter and your best bench right before the Phillies series, luck out to 2 wins and no show. No wonder this team sucks. I think they'll be lucky if they get to 80 wins. Look at their September schedule: 10 more with the Brewers, Cardinals & Cubs, 3 @ Rockies, 9 more @ Philly and Atlanta. Not even the 5 games against the Marlins and the 5 games against the Mets the supposed "soft-landing spots" look anything but easy.

I think Mets have a shot at 3rd place.

Just 5 losses separate Nats & Mets.

Default 65-66

Won 2 of 3 against the Phillies after shipping out Daniel Murphy and Matt Adams, and came back in the Wednesday game from 1 down with 2 outs to hit a walkoff homer, Zim's 11th career walkoff homer, 2nd on the active list, and than lost 2 of 3 to the Mets in Queens. Following the walkoff Wednesday, the Nats followed that momentum by being held scoreless the next 32 1/3 innings, and 1 run over the next 34 innings before pounding out 14 runs the final 2 innings off of 3 Mets relievers to salvage a game in the series. 3 games in Philadelphia beginning Monday, and following an off day Thursday they start a 10 game homestand with 3 games against the Brewers. IF they get 3 wins this week, they better be against the Brewers, but they probably need more than 3 games I'm thinking 4-2, 5-1. Times ticking away as they remain 8.5 back in the division and 7.5 back in the Wildcard.
