Dave says there was no rain in the forecast but he's suspicious given the wind and clouds.

Wow.  The Nats have the hardest time stealing bases this year.

Because they choose poorly

Nice, Jackson.  Ross got blown away, the Fox announcer had my same thought.

Maybe McCann's condition is suckitude.

Damn it, Freeman.

Apparently Edwin and Flores weren't paying attention last night when Detwiler jammed the crap out of Freeman ...

Give Ed a 4-run lead and he is apt to blow it pretty quickly.  I like Lannan better for a fifth next year.

1933? I thought the Senators went to the playoffs after that, just didn't go to the WS. Or am I wrong.


No playoffs until 1969, when both leagues split into east and west divisions. Nationals (aka Senators) did not go to post-season after winning the pennant in 1933. Came close about 1945, when MLB was played by non-regulars. I think the Browns won the pennant on the last day, after a Senators (OK...they were officially the Nationals) OF forgot to take his sun-glasses to the field and lost a fly ball in the sun. Not a great record, and that roster has some strange names...I think the great Cecil Travis came back from the war, but had suffered frost-bitten toes during the Battle of the Bulge. Couldn't hit the way he hit in 1941 (something like .350). Travis has been called "the finest ball-player never to get a single vote for the Hall of Fame". He deserved it: gave up a Hall of Fame career to serve in WW2...and not just serve as a recruiting symbol.

Some very old players, and some players who went back to obscurity the next season.

I was just thinking that a 2-run lead won't be enough. Can't watch...MLB "rainbow" is blocked because it's a Fox game, and Fox is carrying the Yankees. Grumble!

We're going to lose, aren't we? This is the beginning of the end. We'll fall out of first and then just make an early departure in the first Wild Card game

Did FOX just say Bourn was leading off this inning?

Nothing but quality at-bats since the first one.  And I've never seen him carry his frustration with him into the field.  Have you?

He's fine.  As far as you're greatest ever 'if he can just control his frustration' comment.  That has no basis.  Talent and drive is what counts.
