At this point, having lost 22 of our last 30 games. And heading into a due or die 13 game road trip. Im just curious to find out, how many people think the Nationals will rise to the occasion and make the playoffs, and how many people will think they will keep falling down???

With Patterson and Livan pitching against a pair of 6-something ERAs, I think we have a chance to take the first two games.  Pettitte is pitching game 3 though, so no matter who we put on the mound, our offense is going to be starved for hits like usual.

And to even take the first 2 we will need another oustanding start from Patterson and much better stuff from Livan than we have seen in his last two starts.

Honestly?  I don't think the boys can do it.  I predict Houston will take 2.  Then again we're rumored to be starting Brendan Watson at leadoff, and I don't really know much about him.  He is the X factor.  But even he can only do so much.
