Actually it looks like Ladson has completely checked out for the season now that there's no chance of Dunn getting 200 K.  No tweets about the game since Dunn was pulled.  What a knob.

10 game improvement is a very successful season, in the long view, it really is.

The pythagorean last year was 66 wins. They made some improvements, but not enough for me to avoid calling this season a disappointment. Way too many games where they were not putting the best team on the field. They need to get past the use of seasons as extended Spring Training. And the SP situation is a still a disaster.

Overall it was an improvement from 2009 but anything short of losing 105 games and having Oliver Perez as our #1 starter would have been considered an improvement.

Gosh, you clearly didn't read Bill Ladson's tweet that the pitching overachieved this year!

I saw that tweet.  I honestly can't think of anyone that overachieved except for Livan.  At least among starters.

BANG ZOOM.

Also, freak Bill Ladson. Little nag.

I would love for nothing more than Ladson to lose his job this offseason.

2005 Nats improved 14 games over the 2004 Expos, but it didn't seem to be an indicator of long term success.

Oh, I read that, and then just shook my head in disagreement. I don't understand how anyone can use Nats pitching and overachieving in the same sentence. It is true that the offense was weaker than it should have been. But you can blame that on an organizational obsession with not playing the best performers and giving the most at bats every game to the guys with the worst OBP. Injuries down the stretch didn't help either. We were essentially playing a AAA lineup. Espinosa had a similar rookie debut as Desmond did last year - started off red hot, then tanked. But it is realistic to expect Esinosa to have a 2011 at the plate more like Desmond's 2010. So that bodes well. SP is the issue. They have decent options to fill out a bottom of the rotation, but they have to add a top arm and one more reasonable option to be respectable.

This year showed the team stretch itself into the realm of respectability with some key pre-season additions. They just don't have enough depth.

It's called the Acta Correction. -7 games.

My thought as well.  Perfect for this dysfunctional organization.
