So...how about those Nats?

Postby thedcnative » Thu Apr 09, 2009 5:46 pm

Well, I don't think we went into this season expecting anything great. Getting swept in that first series and then heading to Atlanta to play the red hot Braves isn't the best start to anyone's season. Hopefully, our fortunes will turn before it's over. And besides...bad baseball is a Washington tradition :-)

I will be happy if we don't lose 100 games this season.

That's how it goes, man.
I tell ya, this is kind of nice, though. My grandfather cheered for the old Senators when they were bad. My dad cheered for the new Senators and God KNOWS they sucked. Now, I get that with the Nationals. 3 generations of bad baseball.

...yay.

I have never been a big baseball fan, but decided to root for the Nats this year, I figure better to get on the bandwagon when the team is way down so no one can accuse me of being a front runner when/if they become competitive.

I saw the score. No defense! You can hit home runs six ways to Sunday, but if you don't have sound fielding and solid pitching, you're not going to get anywhere.

Exactly what I was thinking. If we even had decent defense and pitching today we would have won the game.

If we had decent pitching and defense period, we'd be a respectable team.

I was kind of befuddled that they did not pull the guy pitching after he hit two guys and was about to face Ryan Howard....
