Thus endeth our monatus horribilis, to alter an old phrase. Good god was July ever one bloodbath. Hopefully a fresh start in August can wipe away the stain of this month. I still don't believe we're out of the race.
Notice how well Nick Johnson is doing since his return from the DL, unlike two other once-injured Nationals I could mention. He's hitting AND fielding equally as well as he was before he left. Did you see that ridiculous out he made during last night's loss? He had to break at least three laws of physics in order to do that. As far as I'm concerned, HE is the team leader right now.
BTW, am I crazy or did my hero GUUUZ have a full complement of good at-bats today?
