They should treat it like this but that doesn't change the fact that they're implying or stating it flatly that we're not worthy of their best effort. I think that's insulting.
It's incredibly insulting. But we earned it with our pathetic performance last night. If I were Charlie Manuel I would enter this game with the firm belief that I could put out this lineup and still have a credible chance of winning.
On the plus side, Marquis gets to pad his stats by striking out hitters like Brown, Dobbs, and Schneider
Wow I just realized the Nats still have no hits.
