like the ads, the Nats are, hands down, the most boring and unexciting team to watch (or listen to)...
coming from behind? almost impossible
keeping a lead: as rare as Halley's Comet
executing fundamental baseball consistently: see above
DM's post game blatherfest: 20 minutes of observing the obvious: "we gotta swing at good pitches, I'm proud of my guys, we gotta put balls in play, they are competitors, that can't happen (but so often does), they stayed on the field (as if they had a choice)
162 games of snooze fest....and for this, the owners want top dollar for seats? nope.

Was Garcia going for an imaginary double play?

Elvir had Charlie and Dave on the radio while getting puked on by a small child.  It seemed fitting given the game so far.

I'm starting to think 🤔 maybe this team isn't very good.

perhaps only DM thinks this team might be good.....but then, his opinion does not mean much

More camel rentals may be in order.

there should be a new metric in which the Nats could easily excel.....instead of WAR, LAR.....Losses above Replacements...almost every player on the team would be in double digits..
