AZ I'm going to rip that greater than sign right out of your keyboard.

it's true though. we traded away our most reliable, stable, and proven pitcher for one pitiful pitcher and one arising question mark.

At least the Caps have won 2 games. This is also the Caps' first trip to the playoffs in five years and it's a learning experience. The fact that we made the playoffs was remarkable. The Wizards have a veteran team that was SUPPOSED to be good.

The Wizards are good in the East. We've also beaten every top team in the league this season w/out our whole team playing. The reason I mentioned the injuries is because no matter what team you are on, you need time together to gel. I have faith in my team.

Now the Wiz are getting blown out.  No defense nor offense.  Awful.

Milledge is so ridiculously inconsistent.  He's better suited for the 5 hole.  Too bad we have no one to hit in the top of the lineup.

Come on, Zimmerman. Just a single works here. Even an infield single.

Milledge is a bum.  Wish we still had Church.

Like someone else said, the Nats are making themselves comfortable in the cellar everyday. Every loss is the equivalent of adding another piece to make the place feel more like home.

freakin Zim.  Chases a pitcher's pitch on an 0-2 count.  He's lost.

Yes, a complete junkball pitcher who got lit up in early innings, just like our current rotation. Just what we need. You have the answer for everything. You must eat a lot of fortune cookies to gain this much knowledge.

wow, the marlins offense is NO JOKE! up 7-2 on the pirates, best hitter in the n.l. has another homer. how  much longer will they have to keep it up before people recognize they are for real?

Zimmerman just needs a couple of months off :?

The only two guys that are keepers on this team are Nick and Guz.  I would love to trade Zimmerman while his value is still perceived as decent for some prospects.

Pretty much. By time they snap out of this funk (if they snap out of it) they'll be so far entrenched in the cellar that it will be impossible to dig out.

The best hitter in the NL is Utley, followed by Matt Holiday.  Hanley is around 5th.

"Everything's fine, don't worry, it's early! The only way Zimmerman is ever going to hit is if we keep putting him out there! We'll come around!"

The Wiz and Nats games are unwatchable.  The wiz look like a high school team out there.  They are doing the exact opposite of what they need to do to beat Cleveland.

It's almost impossible for a team to be better than its best player. Zimmerman's supposed to be our best player, right?

thanks for your insight, but hanley is still the best hitter in the nl.
