Just the right time for a 'Tired Sucks' commercial.

Somehow, the Nats have looked all game like they are trailing.

QFT. It's one of those games where you knew the hammer was gonna drop on them at some point, but you just didn't know when.

Gotta be kidding me. Did you see that spectacularly lazy play by him the other day?

IMHO   A bad toss to first is not as bad as not covering first on a ground out to the 1Bman.   That's basic crap.

A bad throw in one game doesn't erase a career of quality defense.

I know you have some sort of vendetta against Clippard but it's not like he's blown a lot of saves this year.
Don't have any vendetta. But I love how everyone jumps on HRod and  wants him released, but no one says anything about Clippard. This isn't the first game he's goofed up.

He's saved us numerous times this year. Please just quit. HRod more often than not sucks.

Livan always looks "spectacularly lazy" when he makes plays. He even looks "spectacularly lazy" when spearing line drives out of the air.

The reason people jump on H-Rod and not Clippard is because Clippard is a far better pitcher by pretty much every metric except velocity.

I agree. Never said otherwise. Frankly, I think Clippard is the most valuable relief pitcher on the team.

But he SNAFU'd that one up.

LOL Werth should feel embarrassed. Walking the guy in front of a 126 million dollar man. Smart move by Tracy though.

Werth should man up and make the Rockies pay. He probably won't though.

Not really too confident right now. Werth choked in a huge situation against Colorado earlier this year.

Yes, and he actually has the ability to throw a strike at will, which should be a prerequisite for anyone pitching at the professional level.
