god forbid we field a league average payroll and attempt to win now and in the future

I'm all for winning now and in the future but that's easier said than done. It's much easier to invest in youth and build a core from within and grow with it as the Nats have done.

And the payroll will come when the roster matures.

Don't forget winning the opening day game, winning the home opener, and a three game winning streak.  :koolaid:

Anybody offhand remember the W/L tally for our biggest NL East division lead 2006-2010? Was it the first week of '08?

OK...let's put it this way: first place, 5 wins, 2 losses, and Jordan Zimmermann is only the third best Nats starter...and he starts tomorrow. Good day sunshine!

I would like to finish this month 13-10. That seems a reasonable goal and one I actually hope we could beat.

Nats starters have a 19IP scoreless streak going right now.

It's so weird (in a good way) watching the replay of today's game and thinking that guys like Stra, Gio and Zimm are actually on our team now, all at the same time, making the pitches you'd like them to.  It doesn't seem quite real after so many seasons of nibblers who I would scream at every other pitch that we can expect great pitching performances night in and night out.

I like both. Leaning to the latter, though.

#Nats pitchers are 1st in MLB in K's (69) and least HRs allowed (1), and have the 2nd lowest ERA (2.19), but need to improve BB (23) T-20.
