That post just gave me an idea.  Maybe the Nationals could trade Harper to the Skins for their next five years of draft picks.  There's bound to be a clutch-hitting baseball player or two in there somewhere.

 :confused:



But I'm pretty sure I vowed that if the Nats didn't win the WS that I would not post for at least a month. I'll have to go back and check. :lol:

Does your post ban include Red Loft? If Nats lose tomorrow this board will fall into utter madness. Not sure it'll be safe for the sane.

Yes. But there's room for wiggle. :lol:

Hard to argue. You can complain about how Dusty is re-arranging the deck chairs if you want...

The argument is that there are better chairs that he's not even putting on the deck.

I’m calling it right now. Nats win the next two games and the series. If not I’ll either let Spider pick my avatar for the next two months or self ban for two months. I’ll let the forum decide. Put my money where my mouth is.

BUT, at least one person has to agree to the same. Hopefully multiple people. I’ll take all comers.

I’m tired of the gutless and talentless talk. It’s absurd.

They are winning this.

Self ban for two months? How nice that would be so you don't have to take the abuse. How about you have to stop by every day and admit how wrong you were?

I'm with you on game four. Think they will win and the give us false hope for game 5.

Sure, if Nats win the series, I will self ban for 60 days.
I don't get the self ban stuff. Running and hiding is not the answer. Stay here and face the truth.

Clearly not talentless. In fact, this will probably go down as one of the most talented teams in the history of baseball to not win a damn thing of meaning.

Yep. Raise the banner!

Turner: 0/12, 5k's
Harper: 2/12, 5k's
Rendon: 1/10, 1k
Murphy: 1/11, 3k
Zimmerman: 3/12, 1K
Werth: 1/10, 1k
Weiters: 0/8, 3k
Taylor: 2/8, 1k

That takes some real talent.

Gutless. The nut sacks always tighten too much with this squad. They're toast.

BTW: Chicago's two best hitters are batting .273 and .333; Nats .250 and .250. Harper is sub .200. Smile, Wolf, and Met= .100 or less.

Nats are closer to an 87-88 win team that benefited from playing an unbalanced schedule against the worst division in MLB.  Rizzo has not done a good job.

They have a better record against the NL Central and NL West than they do against the NL East. This is just a hot take that everyone keeps parroting without any thought.
