Watching the other series, tells me that there's something horribly wrong with the Nationals. All of the other series are competitive. Why aren't the Nationals?
Hell, Buck Showalter is practically picking players off the street and he's challenging the Yankees.
Every other team in the playoffs is pitching better than the Nationals and almost all are hitting better. Why is what we're getting, performance-wise, so much worse than what we saw during the regular season? This team we're watching now would have been lucky to finish .500 in the regular season.
I don't understand why this is happening. It can't be experience. The Orioles have no experience. The A's have even less but they're competitive.
It doesn't make sense.
