Good suggestion for the obscenity filter... Mets fan = classless buffoon. After all, "Mets fan" is an obscenity.  ;)
Yeah we were hating on him for most of the game.  What a classless buffoon.

I started the game with my laptop turned off and after putting up 3 runs in the first I sure as hell wasn't going to jinx things and get on the internet   ;)

It's sort of comical listening to Manny describe good pitching and good defense as "weird" and "unusual."

Got back from dinner, great win! Does Lannan count as getting a CG SO (9 ER, 0 runs)

Good game tonight. After dealing with a lot of rain at the park this week, it was nice to have not only a dry game, but see a good, well-played game. The offense and defense both came out tonight, and Lannan took advantage. It was good karma to get the opposition to botch the baserunning to turn what could have put runners on the corners or 2nd&3rd with no outs into a double play. Usually we do crap like that. Nice play pretty much all around. A few mental lapses, but the team more than made up for them which is unusual. So glad the team didn't let the Mets back into the game.

Awesome game! Glad Lannan got a complete game. Too bad I missed the whole thing ... I don't think I've followed a Nationals win on this forum in weeks.

Beautiful night, crowd overstuffed with Mets fans who all shuffled back to their shanties after the 8th inning. The beer lady was screaming "Welcome to NatsTown" (and sure adding "nages" under her breath) at all the Mets fans - I gave her a huge thumbs up.

What a difference to see a team firing on all cylinders ,but I almost had a conniption fit when I saw Colome warming up in the bullpen. He's just the guy to give up 6 runs :roll:

We finally found a manager dumber than Manny - Jerry Manuel looked like he didn't know the rules of baseball after Emil Brown got himself out and stood at 2nd like an oaf.

Emil Brown was DFA'd by the way. At least Omar has the balls to get rid of a no-account player after a wretched performance.

P.S. An amiable Mets fan saw that Wil Nieves had grounded out to 3rd, short, and 2nd, and quipped "One more and he's got the cycle" - that drew a big guffaw.

Dukes had the game of his life until the error, and I wanted to buy Nick some sunglasses after he dropped that foul ball, but I'm gonna let it slide. This was a glorious win.

Thank the dark gods this was game my father wanted to go to see. I was in hanging in 313 and enjoying the hell out of the game. At one point, late in the game, the Mets fans actually started cheering. We crushed their poor little souls with chats of "Double Play! Double Play!". Amazing they scurried away like ****roaches.

Thank you John Lannan! Stellar game.

Lannan's due for an 8 inning 2 hitter.  In a 5-0 Nats win!!!
   We hope!!!

Good call! I only got to see the last out and couldn't believe my eyes that Lannan was pitching a complete game and the Nats were kicking tail. Must've been a great day at the park, fantastic weather, good crowd and a Nats win.

MAINE GETS POUNDED BY LAST-PLACE WASHINGTON
NATIONALS 7 METS 1

By BART HUBBUCH



WHAT HAPPENED? Jerry Manuel (above) argues with umpires after a double play in the fourth inning (inset) after Emil Brown (left inset) and Luis Castillo passed one another on the basepath during the Mets' 7-1 loss to the Nationals.

WASHINGTON -- John Maine has had better days, and the same goes for the Mets.

Both were so awful here last night that even the Nationals -- otherwise known as the worst team in baseball by a mile -- had no problem strolling to a 7-1 win at Nationals Park.

Mets Blog

At least the latest Mets' misery on what has become an unexpected road trip from hell didn't last long as Long Island native John Lannan needed just two hours to polish off his first career complete game.

The Mets have now dropped four of five on this week-long trek to bottom-feeders Pittsburgh and Washington, and this was easily the worst of the lot.

When the 15-39 Nationals -- on pace to challenge the 1962 Mets for the worst record ever -- weren't bashing Maine's batting-practice fastball, Lannan was mowing down what amounted to a Triple-A lineup from Jerry Manuel's injury-ravaged club.

While Washington was hitting three homers off Maine (5-4), the Mets were hitting into a Nationals-record five double plays that included one of the oddest you'll ever see in the fourth inning.

"Not a good night," said Manuel, who got another unexpectedly horrific outing from a proven starter after Mike Pelfrey's meltdown in Pittsburgh on Thursday.

The biggest concern for the Mets last night was Maine, who was making his first start since being socked with a severe case of stomach flu that caused him to leave early from his previous outing.

Maine usually dominates the Nationals, posting a career 7-2 record against them coming in, but he was pitiful last night.

Maine made it through just four innings, giving up all seven Washington runs on six hits and two walks. That included three no-doubt-about-it homers by Adam Dunn, Nick Johnson and Elijah Dukes.

"John Maine might be going through a period of dead arm or whatever," Manuel said. "I just didn't see the electric stuff we've been known to see, and that's a little concerning when that happens."

Maine, who lost for just the second time in his past seven decisions, admitted his velocity is down but offered no excuses after lasting just 68 pitches.

"I had nothing today," Maine said. "I mean, it was awful. It was a waste of a day. I didn't have my legs under me. I tried to get something out of my fastball, but I didn't have it. It's a bad feeling. It's terrible."

Maine also admitted he wasn't at full strength physically after being laid up with the stomach virus most of this week.

"I'm not 100 percent, but I wanted to go out there and pitch," Maine said. "It was my fault. I made bad pitches."

While Maine was scuffling, Lannan was cruising. The left-hander, who began the night 2-5 thanks mostly to a season-long lack of run support, showed what he can do when finally given some backing.

The Mets hit into double plays in each of the first four innings -- with the capper a bizarre twin-killing that saw Emil Brown called out for running past Luis Castillo in the fourth -- then went down meekly until breaking through for an unearned run in the eighth.

Lannan induced 19 ground-ball outs by the Mets, who saw the top four hitters in their depleted lineup go a combined 1-for-13.

"He kept the ball down, they got a lot of double plays," Manuel said. "It was a simple as that."

Unfortunately for Manuel, nothing seems very simple for his own team these days.
