Tonight's loss to the Phillies just got worse, two hours after it ended. 

I watched the end of the Rangers-Angels game, the Angels scored 3 runs in the top of the 10th to take the lead, 10-7.  First batter comes up in the bottom of the 10th, Nelson Cruz (who's not having a particularly good season) hits a bomb. 10-8 Angels.  The Rangers proceed to load the bases, scoring another run in the process, with NO outs.  It's 10-9 before the first out is recorded.  They proceed to get a hit down the left field line and win the game 11-10.  They loaded the bases, kept them loaded, scored 4 runs, all with zero or one out.

We were down by one run in the bottom of the 9th and couldn't even get a runner on base.

It's not like the Rangers are playing great baseball either.  They had lost the first two games of this series.

Obviously the Rangers and Nats have the same quality of offense.

Looks like the Fillies kept the players who want to win. Dumped the losers. Have a team with "something to prove". OK, Nats are still better.

You will never be able to bag a babe like that no matter how hard you try.

Sorry, just being in the LoD thread gets me thinking like a Negative Nancy.

If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right.

You know what's awesome?  Watching all the teams in contention get better while we stand pat and wait for guys who we complain about on a routine basis come off the DL and call that "a great deadline policy."

We rule.

And people laughed when I said Rizzo would replicate his "salary relief" statement from last year's trade deadline.

it feels good minty. 

am i happy with the big chunk of the season so far?  yeah, 19 games up.  but only LANC/SSS members can be THAT blind not seeing our holes down the stretch. 

and if we're watching the playoffs without the nats i can point out to those reasons and prove that i'm right.  just like i was about the lerners being cheap.

Look, I resigned from the LOD months ago but RZO must not have been able to pry himself away from drooling over Big Dick Richie's abs to pull the trigger on a trade for an upgrade at C.  That said, this team has a shot to win 100 games and make it to the playoffs, something that most of us would have never though possible in 2007-2009.

Oh, it's all in fun. I will put on the LoD hat while I'm here. Of course, it will be worn improperly and in a very satirical way.

You are welcome to come to the SSS thread and make fun over there.

0-2 since the deadline.  Rizzo's complacency has crushed this team.

Bump.  I'm not "officially" a member of LoD but I don't mind admitting I'm really concerned about the way things are going.

Someone should start a poll asking what will be the date that we drop out of first place.   The first possible date is after the final Cardinals game and that's where I'm betting.

EDIT - On second thought, I decided to be a little optimistic and go for the first game of the Philadelphia series at Nats Park.

How can anybody be optimistic about how this team is playing right now?  Even if, by some miracle, the team wins tonight, very little will be changed.  This team is struggling to win games, period, winning consecutive games seems to be beyond them at this point in the season.

And, yes, it will likely take a miracle for the Nationals to win a game started by John Lannan against the Phillies.

I'm not really a LoD or SS.  I'm more of an optimistic realist.  Realistically, the way this team is playing now, I fully expect them to flameout of the remainder of the regular season and lose the wild card game to the Cardinals.  Optimistically, God, I hope I'm wrong because being right about this might be more than I can take.
