Catcher is hitting below league average. Lerners are too cheap to pay for a catcher!!

Glockypoo - you miss the spirit of the LoD.  Just as the SunShine Squad would keep faith despite all reason, the LoD must dig deep into the irrational to find despair.

I'm just mad about the lack of trade talks. Sure we have Werth, Storen, and Tracy coming back but that still doesn't solve the catcher question or the strasburg replacement.

Yeah, but hasn't Rizzo always been tight lipped? I don't remember any rumors that actually went down as trades for us and all the trades we have made seem to come out of some unsuspecting source ... Like Ramos for Capps, etc.

So I wouldn't put a lot of stock in "lack of trade talks"

Oh and

I mean yeah, we go through this every trade deadline and off-season but I still always mention my opposition of it.

I just want to know what we're going to do without Strasburg if he potentially/probably gets shut down!

Gio Gonzalez couldn't be more overrated by this fanbase. He still walks WAY too many guys and that's never going to change. He also doesn't seem to have the mental makeup to just shrug things off out there.

Gio Gonzalez is the best pitcher to ever be born. He could have struck out Albert Pujols from his cradle and, 70 years from now, he will kick Cole Hamels' grown grandchildren into a wall.

you'll get a better reaction if you're a little more veiled in your trolling.

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.


At the time of my post, we were 3 1/2 games ahead of the Braves.  I thought we were 2 1/2.
If the Mets had taken the series (and, it turns out, we were somewhat lucky to win the first two) and the Braves take three out of four from us this weekend, Atlanta would be in first - not us.
Even so, our lead could have easily dropped to just a half-game.

The Mets have the worst bullpen in baseball. There's nothing "lucky" about scoring runs on them. That's how they roll.  If anything the Mets were lucky for catching Gio on an extremely rare bad day.  And Atlanta's pitching stinks. It will be a lot harder for the Braves to catch the Nats than it will be for the Nats to stay in first place.

JCA gets this thread and the SSS thread for that matter. They're both very tongue-in-cheek. Not everyone gets that, of course.

The Nats have way too many holes to continue to win. They have no defense in the outfield, they are in desperate need of a catcher that can stay healthy, they have no lead-off hitter what-so-ever, and they need to add another starter. This team is simply a mess, and if the Braves add someone like Greinke they have no shot to win the East.

and that's when you'd hear LAC step up again.  if the nats stand pat and watch everyone else make moves, it'd be a disaster.

When the Nats stand pat, not if.  But freak it anyway, we're shutting down Stras and calling it a season, the window of opportunity begins next year, that's when it will be worth spending the cash.

Saving Strasburg for the future and striving to succeed this season are not a zero sum game.

You're vastly over simplifying.
