It meant that they had to get extremely lucky

I love it when luck comes into any baseball discussion.

Well what do you call it when another team goes full retard at the end of the season. If the Braves had swept the Nationals in July, they'd have made the playoffs.

Luck is real.  One could also call it "random variability".

Jinxes on the other hand....      :smh:

I want a Strasburger so I'll give it a shot....

I think it was Joe DiMaggio who once said the reason he played hard every day was because you never knew if there was someone in the stands watching for the first time and he didn't want too leave the impression he didn't try hard. 

Well, we do have quite a few new posters with the recent success of the team and so those guys might not know you intentionally troll or that sportsfan is a moron or that InsaneBoost is a douche.  I have no opinion on GOON yet since he/she is relatively new.  So I guess the moral of the story is post how you want to post, but there are those who may come here for serious discussion and if they are confused by your posting habits you probably shouldn't whine about it.

Now I'm hungry...

What would the conversation have been like today if Tim Timmons had refused the Steinbrenner cash and called Tyler Moore safe and we'd won the second game of the series?  Add to that, what if the Brad Lidge had never been allowed to set fire to the mound in the first game, when the score was 2-1?  Since the bullpen, without Lidge, allowed 2 earned runs over the entire series, it's not far fetched to say they could have held the Yankees to 0 runs over the final three innings of that game.  Assuming we lose that game 2-1, win the next game 4-3, and lose the final game 4-1, what would have been the story of the series?

What would Mike Wise have said???  :roll:

Only if it's not a big game, for they weren't serving food at the Red Porch bar this past weekend

....call the day before and make a reservation for a table, you can get the same beer and you don't have to deal with the two second delay on the television, Karen and Laura will understand- oops, I'm off topic again.

Baseball, it's a long season and sometimes luck is involved, I'm not worried, yadda, yadda

Wear a Stanton mask and the fecal facial will probably be welcomed by MDS.

Just to put my own non-important thoughts in the thread. I feel that the Nats are really hot now (except for offense but that will pick up), but we played what I consider the best or 2nd best (LA?) team in baseball. Am I worried?-no. Am I hoping for the expected offense to show up when Zimm and Morse turn it on?- yes. Do I expect to be at Nats Park in the playoffs?- you betcha. And I'd love to join Minty there as we help to consume a Strasburger! The inevitable regression to the mean this year is not so daunting as I feel the mean is so much higher now for us due to our pitching.

You're dodging me.  Strasburger or shart.  It's your choice.
