We should be 6-0 against the Giants this year. 4-2 instead

I don't feel any joy whatsoever.  But at least I won't be staying up til 3am tonight.

Oh no, SF is right, we're only 4-2 against the defending champs.  Time to jump ship everyone.

There is an amazing flock of gulls wheeling around the field behind Carpenter and FP...how do they keep them out during games??

I thought he wasn't going to say "we".

How in the hell did the Giants win the Series last year? And how are they good this year?
This team stinks. Even their stud starters aren't doing much. Sanchez is trash.

I think the Giants are hitting AND pitching only slightly worse than last year.  That much of a difference can win you a World Series.  A lesson for the Nationals...
 :panic:
The Nationals need to get a winning streak going, with Zimm-with-1-N returning.  This team can still make the playoffs, but better MANAGING is needed!  
 :poke:
Nix should be starting every day, and only played tonight because Werth's ankle was sore.  We WON this game because of the walk by Nix (batting 8th) that resulted in him scoring a run.  Yes, he swung at crap at his ankles, but the ump was calling strikes for everything low.  (Probably to shorten the game, after last night's marathon. Wrong, but it happens.)

Optimistic, but not far off-base. And optimism is good.

Start Nix every game. Start Bernadina in CF, unless Ankiel hits more. Forget L/R matchups. Just let the best players play.

[and not that I'm going to stay up until 1am to follow a game in SF / LA. Hats off to everyone who did!]
