We only played one game today.

Exactly.  If we win two out of the next three, the Braves don't gain any ground.  If we only win one, we're still in first place.

The nats will split today and win behind JZimm on Sunday. They will be 3.5 games up after the series is over.

 :nono: Please turn in your Shiner membership card on the way out. I say competitive fire gets sparked and they take the next three.

I like it. A good team gets pissed and comes out fighting. We'll find out what kind of team we have.

They should be able to do it. We have a real manager. They have shown talent. It is time to erase the doubt and just crush Atlanta.

If you believe the Nats to be the better team, then you don't panic. You just go out and play.

The only advantage the Braves have is their winning culture and history. The Nats will develop their's soon enough.

Meh - Braves aren't that good. The culture of this current Braves team is gacking down the stretch last year in historic fashion.

This is all about the Nats. They have the talent, but do they have the Onions?

I guess we'll find out soon enough.

I told my friend that the way Stras was pitching and our bullpen shuts things down that we would have no problem holding our 3-0 lead at the time.

I was a member of that choir.    Neighbor and I started roaming the stadium early because of this.   By the time we got to the "Loft" to get out of the rain, the tide had begun to turn.    We ended up along the third base line when the deed was completed.    We were in disbelief.

What can I say, 6 runs in the ninth to save the game.

Seemed to shine just fine tonight!

Metaphorically speaking, of course.

The Nationals have crossed the 90% playoff odds mark at ESPN (It's actually Cool Standings, I believe)

We're over the 17 game hump. That's all that really matters.

.5 games out of best record in baseball.

Win today and we'll have the best record for at least 3 hours.

With the Yankees and Rangers losses tonight, every team is winning below .600 now.  Also, we've moved into a tie with the Rangers for the second best record in baseball, 1/2 game behind the Yankees.  We've never been this close to having the best record in the majors, this season.

EDIT - Nevermind.
