No Ramos, No Werth, No Morse, No Storen, No DeRosa, No Lidge, No Matteus, No Problem - 10 games over .500 for the first time this year.

I believe this is the third time they've been 10 games over this year.

But your point still stands. Considering the injuries, this team has been remarkable.

It's the second time, I believe.  We were 14-4 when we had our 5-game losing streak.

We've been 9 games over three times since then but always lost the next game.

I'm pretty sure we were 10 games over one other time after 14-4, because a couple weeks ago after a win, AComak said that the Nats were 10 games over 500 for the first time since 2005 and I reminded her that we had been 10 games over 500 at 14-4

On a TV Show I watched on Fox yesterday.  Players voted that Ankiel has the best Outfield arm in the major leagues!!!!  Francour was 2nd.
Flipped when people voted in the fan cave.

That sweep was no fun.

But I hear Nats Park will have fictional bullets being fired from many a finger gun soon... AKA, this weekend.

You're welcome for the pick me up, everyone!  ;)

That was a great throw from Roger Bernidina last night to throw out that attempted sacrifice fly

If you aren't on the Sunshine Squad bandwagon after what you've seen so far this season you probably kick puppies in your spare time.

honestly, CMW had some positives last night.  I'd like to see him get a few more starts under his belt, before I form an opinion on who the #5 starter should be.

Accordng to MLB Tonight, every team in the Eastern Time Zone has a winning record except the Tigers and your Washington Nationals are #1.

"You are my sunshine / my only sunshine": Washington catcher sang to Ted Williams, who had to call time to stop laughing. Unfortunately, Williams hit the next pitch into the trees in the back-yard behind the CF fence.
