I agree. It's almost humiliating, in some way.

I'd like to hear what Frank Robinson has to say post-game.


I think he was dumb for batting Anderson 4th as a DH, but what can he do?  These guys don't execute.  I think they lack focus.  It sure would have been nice to Johnson against the AL teams so  that he be our DH, but he apparently had to twist for a ball (God forbid) and got hurt again.

I'm bitter.

We went from hottest team in baseball to losers of 9 out of 11.  WTF?

I'd like the explanation for not trying to bunt to advance runners!  Every at-bat was like the bases were empty.

True.  Still, take away Claytons error and get somebody to hit a fly ball when neccessary and we would have won the game.

Somebody would have to wake him up first...Kenz aFan was his harshest critic when we lead the NL-East last year.  Much of what Kenz had observed in Montreal accurately described his shortcomings.
 
Hey, they just ran a TV commercial for Glory Days Grill - I wrote to their headquarters and suggested to the bosses that it probably wouldn't cost much.  They air Nationals games on DirecTV, so I told them they needed to let fans know that.  They are all over the DC area; lots of restaurants to visit.  They ordered the Germantown MD manager to TURN ON THE NATS GAME for us.

I'm not a Hall of Famer but I think when you have two leadoff doubles, you should score, at least, two runs.

But that's just me.  :|
