Yet he's allowed to ruin perfectly good gameday threads day in and day out.

I guess after having been here for so long I've come to expect it.  I just take shots back at him and he ignores me. 

Whatever.  At least he's a Nats fan - he's just stupid.

It's ESPN, I'm surprised they haven't broken coverage to get a live look-in on the Yankees driving home from their game today.

I really hope the Braves lose the wildcard play-in game.
I hope we don't lose the division. We get the Dodgers next, they get the crappy ass Marlins who will roll over. They win 2 of 3, we lose 2 of 3, we are looking at just a 4.5 game lead heading into the weekend series vs a surging Brewers team (Braun has 40 HRs).

It's funny how we've blown every game in this series with a reliever not named Drew Storen or Tyler Clippard. That's on Davey. Gotta get your best relievers into the game in the big spots. He's failed miserably at that.

I hate Sundays when the Nats lose.  Nothing good to continue into a crap work week.

When Morse gets back all will be well.  We didn't get 30 games over 500 for nuthin'. We will win the division going away.

If the Nats win this game, I'm going to knock on my neighbor's door and when he answers I'm going to kick him squarely in the nuts.

Really depressing series.  Burnett looks like crap. Maybe detwiler takes his place in the pen for the playoffs.

Best case scenario this week: 4-2 vs Brewers and Dodgers at home, Braves go 3-3 on the road in Miami and Philly. Would have our magic number down to 4 and a 6.5 game lead with 10 left.

Worst case scenario this week: 2-4 vs Brewers and Dodgers at home, Braves go 4-2 on road in Miami and Philly. Would have our magic number down to 7 but only a 3.5 game lead with 10 left.

Yup, that's the worst part. We can't move on from this series tomorrow and get on to the next one. We have to stew on this frustrating sweep for an extra day.

We will have to root for the Marlins to show some fight and knock off Hudson tomorrow night (not likely).

Technically, the best case scenario is us 6-0, them 0-6 and the worst is vise versa.

true, I just meant realistic scenarios. We aren't going 6-0 this week, they aren't going 0-6. They are capable of going 6-0 but more likely 5-1 at the best. I see us topping at 4-2 if everything breaks right.

All I know is, we better not have frittered away the lead by the time I leave DC on Saturday.
