Damn shame for Hector.

Yes, I know the Nats are struggling but I still can't bash the Nats when I know they are giving it their all. This isn't like when I saw Lee Lacy (or was it somebody on the Cubs?) get thrown out at first base by the right fielder because he didn't run to first...

We need a HUGE inning now from this team.  They can ill afford to go to Atlanta with this sort of long game loss hanging over them.

The way the fans cheered like that for the team after being there for over 4 hours.  They really should feel like crap.   :x

Vidro finished the day 0 for 6.

Not being negative, I'll say no more.

Ken???? Don't you think we have more to worry about than what the Braves are doing?  We have one run and 8 hits in the last 22 innings, and the only reason we scored yesterday is because of a horrible play by their CF.  It is only putting off the inevitable (sp?) if Atlanta loses today.

I am very disheatened that we lost another winnable game.  We just went 2-5 on a homestand where we should have settled for nothing less than 5-2.

Man never mind one run on 8 hits in 22 innings... The Nats cant even squeek out a win at home anymore, that same home that they always came back to, to help kill any slump they might have been in before... I think prayer is all the Nats have left...

Somebody posted before this homestand that nothing short of 6-1 would be acceptable.  Would anyone have believed that it would be 2-5?  Five loses to Colorado and Houston?  I know its not acceptable to be pessimistic on this board but you know what?  There is a guy managing this team who doesn't think clearly.  He uses a shortstop who should be playing in AA and can't be told otherwise while someone who puts energy into the team sits on the bench.   There is at least one guy in AAA who should be on the parent club.  He draws up screwed up lineups that are embarrasing.  He got by the first half when his players were playing on pure emotion and got a lot of breaks.  Now its turned and he truly doesn't know what to do.

You're allowed to be pessimistic on this board if you like, I'm not Mr. feel-good ;)

I just prefer that people not be rude or disrespectful towards EACH OTHER.  Optimism for the team doesn't hurt either, of course, but right now it's certainly understandable to be in a funk while our team is slumping so badly :?

That was me... I should take a lesson from hockey, where after a loss (and after a win), the coaches spend hours checking out game videos to be better able to outline the mistakes and hopefully help the players avoid them in the future... It works. I'm not saying they Nats coaches need to view hours of video tape to spot errors or flaws, but geez, there are like 8 coaches on the team and NONE can spot any hiccups in a player's swing or help them focus approaching each at bat?

As for Frank Robinson... I've been saying as early as spring training that FR knew nothing about managing a baseball team. If all the guys on the team were as good as he was when he played, his methods would make sense... Frank is the Nats manager because everyone got what they wished for... FR was better last season when he was able to take his naps, he cant do that in RFK because there are 25,000 plus extra eyes watching...

Good thing about today's game is that Patterson pitched like an ace, and both Ayala and Cordero were also excellent while getting some work in. The team will need them sharp for the Atlanta series.
