They should sell Nats caps already turned inside-out in rally cap position.  Then, on the rare occasion they are leading in a game, the wearer can turn it rightside-out.   Save a lot of effort over the course of a 162 game season.

i think the nats are the most anti-clutch team.

Bases loaded, one out.  Expected runs - 1.5946


Um, hmmmm.

"Expected runs" haven't been introduced to the Nationals.


Oh yes they have.

2 men on, 3 outs, expected runs, 0.0000

We've left 10 on base, from 9 hits.  What's the projection for the game?

Do you all realize all the reasons why we should win this game:

1. The Marlins are 6-18.  
2. Their starting pitcher had an ERA of over 9.
3. One of our 2 best starters this year was starting.
3. We are 1-7 at home and, by law of averages, we have to win a home game sooner or later.  
4.  See #3 above- you'd think that these guys would be embarassed to play so badly at home & give 110% effort & enthusiasm
5.  Our new owner was named today.  You'd think they'd be happy & want to impress the new boss.

It almost seems to me we would have to try to lose this game.

Oh, and did I mention that the Marlins are a dreadful team?

According to this Atlanta guy it's because Marlon Byrd got "jammed" into the double play.   :roll:

Yes ladies & gentleman he just said it again.

I haven't gotten that far in the book yet!  I am looking at a couple of tables, one is expected runs given any situation in an inning, and the other is your probability of scoring 1 or more runs, given a situation in an inning.

They have a table on game situations, probably very similar to the Post game tracker probability projections.  Has anybody gotten that thing to refresh during games?

Wasn't Nick "Swing 3-0 in the midst of a 1 for 19 slump" Johnson leading the NL in batting less than a week ago?

Hey guys I'm back.  Had to stop on the way home to grab some rally-dinner :lol:

I heard on the radio about that completely unclutch inning though.  :(

Whew!  I thought for sure when he missed that one right down the pipe for strike 2 that Guillen was going to fail to drive in a runner from 3rd with less than 2 outs AGAIN
