Wow. What a civilized thing to do. Now us SSS members have to be civilized and not rub it in.

Damn. You're no fun. ;)

The progress people have certainly been vindicated. While you could quibble with the timeline it is hard to argue with the results. I was defiantly wrong on that one.  :thumbs: :w:

Glad it got nipped in the bud before I devolved into the bitter old loser fan of the interwebz. Sorry to the Nats fans I took those losing seasons out on.  :-[

Now let's win the damn division so the real party can get started.  :cheers:

Let me have it.  I picked them to finish fourth and I even avatar bet against them.  Go ahead Smithian, let me have it!

To doubt, one has to have expectations of success.    I didn't doubt they wouldn't make the post-season, I knew they wouldn't.    Perhaps "we" would next year but not 2012.

Vindication is near.

Hopefully I can be just as smarmy and boastful when it occurs as everyone else has been!

I thought the Nats would win 162 games and sweep the DS, CS, and WS.  So as you can imagine this season has been a serious disappointment for me.

Didn't make a prediction! :)

EDIT: but I did call for Espinosa to be sent to the minors, so flog me for that, and I predicted that Michael Morse would be a bust this season too.

I predicted 85 wins and the second WC. I underestimated them just like about everybody else, I think. And damn happy about it.

I thought they would be a wildcard.  I was pretty optimistic at the beginning of the season but became more peissmistic and more fearful of a choke as the reality of competing for the division crown came to pass. 

The wildcard is great, and no doubt an accomplishment for this team, but I'm a greedy SOB:  I want that 2012 NL East pennant flying from Nats Park.

Seconded.  But I think I predicted 84 wins and close to, but ultimately out of, the playoffs.

No way. The LoD rears its head with every loss, error, blown lead, etc.

Need I remind how many times someone has called "game" in the first inning after the other team scores first?

The LoD and SSS are a state of mind. They really don't have anything to do with reality.   :crackup:

I didn't doubt them, but I did think that next year would be the year. I'm not nagging though. I'll take it a year early.  :lol:
