We outhit them 11-6, had our #3-#5 hitters up in the bottom of the ninth but couldn't pull through...

This is the kind of game we really need to win.

OK, our STARTING pitcher puts us in the hole at the START of EVERY GAME!
So... we do the OPPOSITE! 
We START with our CLOSER, Chad Cordero...
then put in middle relievers...
and END the game with our STARTER!
We DO the OPPOSITE!

Some ppl are just better pessimists than optimists. You get used to dude tho. Just consider him a passionate fan. He reminds me of Mets fans, for some reason

He's just blowing off steam, everyone has their way of doing it.  Some people insult the players, some people insult the coach, and some people punch holes in the wall.  He's just dealing with a 50 pitch first inning that should horrify every baseball fan on earth, and how timely hitting seems to evade this team. 

He's just really really worked up.  We should be glad to have such fanatical fans of this team, every other team does.

Criticism makes bad teams less bad, good teams better and great teams greater. So why then is criticizing the Nats a bad thing? If the Nats players were made of glass, they wouldn't be playing profession baseball. It's every fans right to complain as well as praise, and they have the right to do both at any time and even at the same time.

Like nats2playoffs has pointed out, the Nats starting pitching is making winning games very difficult. The Nats starters have averaged less than 4 1/3 innings per start with a 9.82 ERA, while the bullpen is averaging a shade under 5 innings per game with a 3.20 ERA. No bullpen can take the strain of pitching 5 innings a game. If the Nats are to have any kind of chance to win, the starters will have to start eating more innings, or the Nats will be making the 1962 Mets look like a power house.

I feel bad for the players and Manny Acta, except for a one out single by Dmitri Young on Wednesday afternoon, the Nats have never had the lead for even a half inning so far.
