Josh Johnson has two hits tonight. The #Nats have three.

Boo this team (at least tonight).

I hear somebody yelling constantly but I can't make out what he's saying.

Losing the series against the Phillies at home, getting three-hit at home by the Marlins after a firesale. If this team doesn't shape up soon, the '05 Overachievers might have company.

We have the same schedule but we can't crush the bad teams like they do.

Had a 5 game lead not too long ago now down to 2

Since July 23 when the Nationals had a 5 game lead the combined record of the Nats' opponents is 533-625 (.460 winning percentage) while the combined record of the Braves' opponents is 464-596 (.438 winning percentage).  Additionally the Braves have only played 2 road games since then while the Nationals have played 6.

As far as the Braves putting away bad teams better let's define a bad team as any team with less than 50 wins at this point.

Braves record against bad teams:  28-10
Nationals record against bad teams:  24-19

So yeah that is definitely true.  But it's also irrelevant.  By extension you could just as easily ignore those numbers and use these instead.

Braves record against playoff teams (if season ended today):  10-21
Nationals record against playoff teams (if season ended today):  18-12

Those numbers would suggest that the Nats are the far superior team.  So yes you can definitely say that the Nats can't put away the easy teams like the Braves can the same way you can say that the Braves can't beat playoff teams like the Nats can.  It's a long season and it all comes out in the wash.

To be fair, Johnson had a Cy Young season two years ago.

We will fall to 20 games over .500 106 games into the regular season.  106 games into the regular season the 2005 squad was 6 games over .500.  So let's not panic.

It is more a reflection of the ups and downs that luck brings over the course of the baseball season that the Braves got wild JJ and we got ace JJ.  These things even out in the long run and given 106 games so far to even out we are 2 games better than the Braves.

They also got Bad Buerle.  We'll get the ace Beurhle.

There is reason to panic because the Braves and Reds never lose. Nats are going to be settling for a wild card race before too long.

Atlanta feasts on bad teams. It doesn't matter if we beat good teams if we can't take care of business vs bad ones

I wish that had been Reyes' arm instead of Bonafacio and I hate Bonafacio.
