Based on what?

Come on PC, why do you let this happen and open yourself to even more ridicule?

Ridicule?  From these tools?  I carry it as a badge of honor.

One thing I've noticed about Harper. He's a horrible outfielder and I don't think he will ever get better.

I thought this would be the appropriate place to post that thought.

You think that it's unlikely that a teenager playing outfield for the first time will improve with experience?  That's got to be one of the least logical predictions that I've read on this or any other board.  The kid appears to have a relentless desire for excellence and a work ethic to match, and I think that Nats fans have every reason both to believe and expect that he will improve in time.

Did not mean it, of course. I was trying the LoD thing. It didn't feel right.

My bad.  You definitely fooled me on that one, although I did think that it seemed like an unlikely comment coming from you.  I should have known better. :-)

This Harper in the majors stuff is not working out.  Darn fellow is only around the 4th best 19 year old ever in terms of OPS.  I thought he was supposed to be the greatest modern prospect.   He's behind some guys like Fox, Ott, and Conigliaro.  Stinks!

Replacing Det with Wang in the starting rotation is going to reduce the average velocity of the starting rotation.

Games like today make me feel very Legion of Doom-ish. We have trouble finishing off teams . That is, completibg the sweep when you have someone down 2-0. Yet what do we do in anoter "must win" game?  Right. We roll over and give away a sweep at home.

Won't happen. That's the kind of team that crushes us. Young pitchers who have great breaking stuff.

Hate to say it, but I agree with you. Rays will give us trouble.

We have a historically great pitching staff, a division ripe for the taking, but we're going to miss the playoffs because we've paired it with a bottom-5 MLB offense. 

We're 8-21 in games where our pitchers give up 4 runs or more.  2-14 when our pitchers give up 5 or more.  League average ERA is 3.95.  If, on any given night, our pitchers are league average, LEAGUE AVERAGE, we are a .461 ballclub.  If they are league average or worse, we are a .275 ballclub.

We have no long-term solution at 1b, a shaky-looking cornerstone at 3b, no CF, no leadoff, an aging and injured RF, and a 30-year-old LF who looks like last year was a flash-in-the-pan career year. 

Our long-term offensive strategy boils down to "In Bryce We Trust."

Our young core at 2b, SS, and C are falling apart, overachieving and still barely average, and injured, respectively. 

Hope you like 1-0 games - we've got 5 years of them ahead of us.  We'll win our share of them, because our pitchers are awesome, but everynight they forget to bring their superhero costumes, we'll lose.

Mine sure are. We're lucky that as we've gone 3-7 over the last 10, no one in the division has done better than 4-6. We shoud be pulling away from the division, but we cannot even score on trash like Jeff Francis.

They're lucky that they didn't get swept by Baltimore also. If not for Jackson...that's a a sweep. We couldn't put up anything on BMore.

Prediction:

If we don't start scoring runs, by Sunday evening, July 22, (after last Braves game of series) we will be out of first place.

I hope I'm wrong.

So you think we lose our next 5 games and the Braves take the next two against SF? Because that's what it'll take.

With J Zimm, Gio and Stras going in our next three I'm pretty sure you'll be wrong.
