Hate using all three of our late game guys on a night like this.

Yeah, the game screams "b-team".

A chance of making it interesting, but not a real chance of actually taking top spot.  Playing the wild card team vs playing the Cubs is probably more consequential, but not sure which is the better option.

I’m not sure if I’d rather play the Cubs vs the wild card winner. But the big advantage is that the wild card winner will probably have to have burned their ace to win the wild card game.

Why are we, they need the work?

The manager doesn't understand how to handle a pitching staff. Never has. All 3 worked on Saturday.

Doolittle has been sucking in non-save situations.  Mindfact?  Let's see.
Tough to get amped up with a five run lead and five people in the stands.  :shrug:

He's not good enough at his job to be acknowledged. Like most of his career, he's got a team loaded with talent and they win despite him much more than because of him.

Freaking great catch by De Aza.

Wait, Dusty can't be named because his teams win despite him rather than because of him, but Alejandro De Aza gets a name drop?

Charlie Manuel won a world series.  And the dolt in KC.  You don't have to be a genius.  Handling the gentle egos is just as important as strategy and Dusty does that well.

noice win, obviously...always nice when it's a win.  and, simply, nice game, in the end.  to win with a AAAA starter, who at best would be a decent arm in a winning club's pen, and to have timely hitting when some ('murphy') have been struggling...

Ok, I’m going to say something crazy.  If results hold tonight, the Nats will be 9 games behind the Dodgers. Nats have 7 games against Phillies and 6 games against Braves and 3 games vs. Mets. If the Nats cam find a way to sweep the Dodgers or at least take 2 of 3, this could become interesting for home field. Especially as Nats continue to get healthier. Especially if Dodgers continue to play like they have been.



Even if they advanced that far, the only ones who would benefit from it would be the Lerners by getting an extra home date. It's not like home field has proven to help this team advance in the past. I don't understand why people are so obsessed with it. It just affords us the opportunity (agony) of watch a visiting team swarm the mound in celebration of clinching the series.

It also means you get the wild card team in the first round.
