I could live with a little rally just to get the offense back from the shell shock they seem to be in.

I'll be at the game tomorrow so I won't be online.    I expect support for the effort.

I want a 40 spot right here and now.

Edit: oh wait we're in the 9th. a 9 spot then.

Cmd - lousy time to say this, I know, but would you feel better about espinosa if Jay does not make his catch and the ump does not blow the bunt call?  That happens, he's closer to his season .250 numbers . . . 

I guess I might also trot Lombo out there, but I have less hope for Lombo v. Lohse than I do for Espinosa.  and yes, I realize Lombo had a pinch hit.  Single, no doubt.

One run in last 13 innings. Not good.

Biggest game in franchise history is tomorrow afternoon.  Cheer your lungs out if you get to go, it's going to be wild.

Nah I think Espinosa has been doing decent so far this post season. A lot of robbed plays and then that blown call... but I still don't like that he doesn't make much contact. It doesn't give me much hope when we have Desmond on base. But I think Lombo could be solid. Same with Moore. But whatever. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

I can't wait for Nats Talk Live with Frankenwood.  I hope they get ol' Frankenwood to go insane.

A blow-out in Busch is one thing; but a blow-out at home is unacceptable, Rizzo, Johnson.

We've won many games in a row plenty of times this year. Why stop now? Pull this crap out and get some freaking runs. Nut the freak up pitchers. freaking freak.

The fans were there today and ready to cheer and it was 4-0 before you could even sit down. Embarrasing. I expect the same tomorrow.

I do like the idea of moving Desi to 5th or even 3d, with Moore / Morse moving back to 6th.  At this point, i might even be tempted to give the Shark a start.  We could probably use a better LF defender than Morse has shown, and the Shark would have a

Well, Zimnn is most likely available tomorrow as well.  Stammen has gone every game (Mattheus as well)?

I'd call it disappointing more than I would embarrassing, but yeah, they'll be revved up tomorrow.  An early lead would be huge tomorrow.

The Nats offense was like my high school sex life. Got to second plenty of times, never crossed home plate.
