If they’re in the running for worst team ever, a lot of people will pay attention

Will an historically bad record affect the team's sales price at all?

Maybe a little. The MASN issue is a much bigger hurdle.

The Nats have the worst run differential in the MLB.

They have the worst pitching in baseball

I think the defense might be worst as well.

Correct although I believe the Phillies were way ahead in this category most of the season.  But the Nats are now last!

slugging hasn't been so hot, either. Not to mention baserunning.

Yes, except for pitching, hitting, and defense, this team is doing well. Hey, at least the city uniforms look great.

They'd have to go, like, 17-77.  Around .221 winning percentage.  Even the Nationals are not that bad.

I wonder how much worse they’ll get post-deadline when Bell, Hernandez, Cruz, and whatever other odds and ends that have slight value get sold off?

I don't think there was a huge tail off last year after the deadline.  They hit a bit, and were coming off a bad July.  That  said, they definitely passed a few teams in the tankathon.  They can get by with Yadi and maybe Adams at DH, even with Cruz now hitting well.  First base will be the big drop off in the line up, and I think the bullpen will be worse without Cishek and Edwards.  Nobody is getting moved from the rotation. Cesar contributes, but Ehire can play every day. I'd like to see a playable middle infielder or 3rd baseman come back in the deals unless there's a Gray-quality starter coming back.

I'm not usually a critic of Davey, but yesterday's handling of pitchers leaves something to be desired.
1. Pushing Gray into the low 100's in a 0-0 tie game without having anyone ready in the bullpen, fortunately it worked out
2. Pitching Garrett in the 9th rather than Rainey
3. Letting Garrett start the 10th, again, rather than Rainey

I also would like to see Garcia move ahead of Frankiel in the lineup.

Davey congratulated the Nats after winning Game 7. Not many managers have done that. In Washington, only Bucky Harris, but Bucky died in 1977.
