This team is awful!! At this rate it wonít even matter when Rendon, Murphy, Eaton get back because theyíll be 20 games out since the rest of the lineup stinks and canít score any runs! I had more fun watching the 100 loss teams in 2008 & 2009 because there were no expectations!

They still have the talent to win the division, but they go out meekly in the NLDS once again.

Welp! Did I call that or did I CALL that??

How the hell do you run out of relievers in the 10th inning.......when your starter throws only 57 pitches?? This team is garbage! Martinez is clueless, ownership doesn't care, they didn't do a damn thing to improve the club in the offseason. They replaced a manager that won 95 & 97 games and replaced him with a guy that will be lucky to win 80 games, the bullpen STILL sucks, the 5th starter STILL sucks, and guess what the GM did to improve those areas?? Not a damn freaking thing!!!!!!!!! But keep him around so he can replace another manager next year while he himself gets by scotch free. A GM should consider himself lucky if he makes two managerial hires, no one should be able to make three managerial hires, but Mikey Rizzo is on his 4th managerial hire in his tenure as GM (and 5th if you want to include the 3 games John McClaren managed in 2011 after Riggleman quit on the team). I wanted to fire both of them after 2015 (Williams was his 2nd hire) but decided to give him a chance because the 2 prior ones were out of his control so to speak: Jim Riggleman as I mentioned quit and than Davey Johnson retired, but after how terribly the Williams hired ended you could make a strong case Rizzo didn't deserve a chance for another one. How he managed to hire another TWO managers (with the last one turning out as awful as the Williams hire has been) how does this guy continue to be employed by an organization, unless they don't care, so if they don't care, why, should I as the paying consumer, care?? I said this last year but I'd rather be a Marlins fan. Sure, the team stinks this year but at least they actually have a plan. And the Marlins are actually playing well, the Nats are closer to the Marlins in the standings (3 games) than they are to the 3rd place Braves (4 games). The Marlins may not be good but they will at least give you an effort every game. I mean they won 2/3 in LA (with Kershaw pitching) (something the Nats failed to do) and scored as many runs in the game Kershaw pitched than the Nats did all series the series before (8 each). This team has thrown in the towel.

Nats problem is there is far more NL East depth than expected. I do figure Nats can get to .500, maybe .550 if very lucky, requires 78-57 rest of way, but no longer think .550 plays more than 162 games.

Problem is lineup depth on Nats stinks. I know Murph Is out, but I expect a bad first month from him. Taylor stinks, Zimmerman also.

In short, there is no reason to pitch to Harper.

It's entirely possible if Robbie Ray doesn't get hurt they lose this game as well, but as it stands they come away with a 3-1 win. With the Pirates & Phillies in town for the next 7 games anything less than 4-3 (and really that's being generous) and we can start to pick out a fork.

Apparently they've won 5 straight games: 4 over the Pirates and 1 over the Phillies to climb to a game over .500. 2 things though:
1) I have not listened/watched for a single pitch since the 3rd inning of LAST Friday's game (4/27) vs. the D'Backs (basketball AAU season is a biatch especially when you are running more than 2 teams like I am), so I can't give you the final scores of any of them.
2) If they are doing so well, why bother to tune in anyways?? I got the nationals down at National Harbor, MD (right across the Anacostia River) at the end of July. I'll probably take a couple extra days for vacation to see a Nat(s) game, but if they are 6-1 in the games I haven't paid attention to, should I even go to a game when I'm down there??

Lost on Saturday, had a walkoff Sunday. For how bad this homestand started (0-2) they ended up finishing 7-3.
