I can't imagine even our ownership telling Max & Stras that ownership isn't doing everything it can to win a WS

Telling them that and actually doing that are two wildly different things.

If we can win 8 or 9 of the next 11 games against the “Marlins, Royals, Orioles”, and Phillies this season will get very interesting. Shake it up around here this is VERY DOABLE!!!!

 Let’s kick some ass!!!

 :whip: :whip: :whip:

HERE COME THE NATS!!!!


I think the Nats are probably already too far back, but why not have another 18 win month and see how the view looks then?

April and May put us in a difficult position so at this point all we can do is shoot for a pace that is difficult but doable and hope 90 wins gets us in. If it doesn't at least we get good baseball the last 4 months of the season. 16 a month, git er done!!

Catching the Braves obviously is a tall order with them up 7 games.  Of course with all the remaining games against them we have more "control over our own destiny," but they're good.  In reality, it's more realistic to hope to roughly split with them and aim for a wild card spot based on beating up on lesser teams.  If you're splitting against the division leaders, then you should position yourself well by winning a good percentage against weak teams. 

In a Wild Card game, you have to like having Max to take the ball.

I like the idea of Max in a 1 game playoff for sure. But I'm not giving up on the division. F*ck the Braves!

Since the Nats hit rock bottom and were swept by the Mets, they have gone 24-10 (.706) and have been the best team in baseball.

They just have the best record.  Playing bottom feeders will do that for you...

During this stretch, they've

Swept 2 games in Atlanta
Won 2 of 3 in Cincy
Split in San Diego
Split with Arizona
Swept the Phillies in 3

Those aren't bottom feeders.  They've dominated the bottom feeders and played solidly above .500 against the .500ish or better teams.

I find it amusing that the optimistic poster on here is a pig named Scrapple.

Absolutely!!! July is HUUUUUUGE for our Nationals. Would love to win at least 7 or 8 of the next 10 games with two or more of those wins against the Phillies.
If we collapse at any point between now and July 31st 4:00pm there WILL BE a fire sale in Washington D.C.
I don’t think that is gonna happen though. Let’s think good thoughts.  :woop: :thumbs:

I'm just glad they've made July and August interesting.

Cubs get walked off. Kimbrel blew save. Nats in tie for second wild card. Half game behind Philly (tied in loss column) for first wild card.

So the Nats end up either 5 out and no worse than tied for 2d wild card, or ahead of the Phillies and top wild card position after today.

I didn’t realize the Nats had the 3rd best record in the NL. That’s partially an indictment of how bad the NL has been (they’d be 9th in the AL), but also a testament to how hot they have been.

The NL isnt bad. The NL is filled with parity.
