We suffered a setback yesterday afternoon. Setbacks are a part of life, and we learned that yesterday. Yesterday is now in the past. It's time for the Nationals to flourish and claim the NL East!
In other words, don't expect to always be great. Disappointments, failures and setbacks are a normal part of the lifecycle of a unit or a company and what the leader has to do is constantly be up and say 'we have a problem, let's go and get it'. - Colin Powell
