Nationals @ Diamondbacks, Game 3
« Topic Start: August 12, 2012, 12:10:29 PM »
I see no reason why they can't win this game though they are "due for a loss."
"Due for a loss" in one sense is like saying we are due for heads on the next coin flip because the last flip of a fair coin was tails.  We are a better team, and in any individual game we are due for a win.

Make a proper Gameday thread or GTFO.

Anybody who posts pessimism in the first post of a gameday thread should be permabanned from making gameday threads. Or just permabanned. Speaking as the living god of gameday threads: freak you, sportsfan882.

The curse of SF negativity shall not touch the inviolable glory of this team!!

The Nats aren't due for a loss except inasmuch as they're starting Detwiler... and for a lot of the posters here, even saying that will probably get me in trouble :P

On that last ad, they were advertising a "retro cap" give away. What's a Nats "retro" cap? One with a DC logo?

While that is said tongue in cheek... writers have been saying that since the Reds have taken off since Votto went on the DL, it kills his MVP chances as the Reds have shown they're a great team... and not necessarily dependent on his bat.
