I think you should it use after every win. Sort of like the "another Curley W in the books" thing.

A game and a half ahead of Atlanta, and four-and-a-half ahead of the Philthies.

Is this fun??

Side-note: I looked to buy a red curly-W adjustable hat from Lids, since mine are old and sweat-stained. Lids is out. First time in my long Nats-fan life that my team has been "trendy".

I don't bother to look at standings until Memorial Day.

Neat note on the hats from Lids. But you ain't seen nothing yet if this team manages to keep winning with the injuries it has and then Morse and Storen come back and Harper comes up and we're in playoff contention this summer.

So happy to come back from a weekend trip and see where this team is, even with Zimm hurting.

We won a series!  A 2 GAME SWEEP!  WHOO HOO!



Actually, officially I believe they will consider the makeup game to be part of this series, even though it will likely be a doubleheader in a different three, now four game series. I'm 75% sure that's the way it goes, at least. Someone correct me if I am mistaken. So the game won't be considered part of the the series it is played in. In other words, let's say we lose and win the three other games we play against the Marlins that week. We'd have a three game sweep for that series, and be 2-1 for this weekend's series. It goes against logic, and can lead to some stupid and crazy things, but that's the way it goes.

I never will forget when we had a tie game stopped due to rain, made up months later, where we proceed to get a run right off the bat, and thus the pitcher who had pitched the top of the innings before play was halted months earlier got the win. That pitcher? Joel Hanrahan, who we'd traded to the Pirates, earned the win when he hadn't been on the Nats roster for months.

So as eager as I am to proclaim that we've got ourselves our first sweep of the season, I'm afraid we have to postpone our festivities. Methinks we have a decent shot in San Diego, so patience, grasshopper. What'll be funny is when we win the makeup, we will earn our first series sweeps of the season, despite it coming long after we probably have ten or better sweeps at that point.

We haven't gotten a damn sweep yet. If we win that game, I want a sweep! ;)

Err, it means the difference between having a sweep in hand and not having a sweep yet, so that we still have our first sweep to look forward.

Lol, hey, I did say we have have good shot in SD. Positive vibes all the way!

Truly, I wasnt sure what ACTUALLY counted as a series when you have a rain out.  Just trying to spin the positive!  ;)

Exactly.  Win 2 of 3 and you'll win 108 for the season.  Just keep doing what they're doing.

There's plenty to shine about but I've never been a fan of rolling over September stats from the previous season.

If Morse and Zimmerman and Storen miss half the season, they will be well rested for the second half....  haha

We're 13-4, without Morse and Storen at all.

And now Zimm has missed 2 games.

I'd say we're doing alright.

Zimm has been a positive when in the lineup. You think he's a net negative? Wait till you see the crap they'll replace him with.

Even the SSS would have trouble looking at the bright side of a serious Zim injury. You can't make chicken salad out of...tuna salad.

He hasn't been his usual self when batting. I will say he is better than anyone we'll put in his spot, so I guess by that standard he is a positive.

Thank God for the pitching. We need to get Morse or Moore into the lineup. We need atleast one, maybe two, more productive bats before our pitching goes from "ridiculous" to just "really good".
