    • Ryan Church got shafted a bunch of times. He should've played way more during his time here

    You guys just won't give up the Ryan Church love.    [/list]

    Don Sutton.

    I met Sutton at Nats Park. Guy was a complete jerk. He never wanted to be in DC.

    • Jerome Williams almost had a no hitter
    • We had 7+ starting pitchers in 2007 and all of them were awful
    • Austin Kearns was considered a big signing

    Ramon Ortiz almost had a no hitter
    Same with Jason Bergmann

    Don't remember Jerome Williams coming close

    He got a guy out. That was close enough for Jerome.

    I kind of liked having Zimmerman and Dunn at 3-4 in the lineup. :lol:

    what, you telling me you don't fancy the DeRosa Werth 3-4 combo?

    Ortiz almost did, not so much Williams (he only took it into the 6th if I recall).

    I have no memory of Bergmann ever sniffing a no-no.

    Seeing Jerome get someone out is sort of like seeing the Loch Ness Monster. I won't believe it unless I see it with my own eyes.

    I just looked it up and apparently Jerome Williams one-hit the Mets through 6 innings at RFK in late April.

    While that's not what I would call "almost a no-hitter," that's waaaayyy better than I remember Jerome Williams EVER doing for the Nats.

    That's my point. How the hell can such a guy take it to 6 innings.

    trade acquisition

    I thought that trade was a complete steal for the Nats when it went down. Looking back on it now, it really wasn't.

    I only remember because I was at that game.  Nats lost in extras :roll:

    I remembered him having one decent outing, but I didn't remember it being that good.  Blew my mind.

    Lost it on a solo homer in the 8th. Check out the damage he did in the first two innings. Box score

    I do remember Bergmann terrorizing the Braves once or twice.  Primarily I remember that he had a four-solo HR CG loss in AZ :lol:

    Remember when John Patterson was the freaking man? Ask the Dodgers if you don't believe his awesomeness.

    Patterson could be downright nasty before he got hurt.
