This is the real test.
was this 8-game streak a fluke against bad teams?
or are the Nats actually really turning a corner?
we'll see, once they start playing Good Teams.
It's not like the Marlins were playing for nothing. We did find a way to beat Johnson and Haren in that stretch. There may be some flukieness, but they also played good baseball. They didn't make the same mistakes they always made and just lucked into a couple of wins, they played defense and got clutch hits. I don't think it was a fluke, I'm also not convinced they've turned the corner. We've been playing pretty well for longer than this 8 game stretch.
