Can someone please tell me why the Nats struggle against teams like Philthy yet destroy teams like the Braves?
Support the troops, especially our snipers.

I suspect that the Fillies play harder against the Nats. A matter of pride. The four or five time division champs against the team they never respected that is suddenly talked up all over Sports Entertainment Blather

That and:

- Harper needed that half season at AAA that he had to skip because so many hitters were injured

- Ryan Zimmerman's cortisone shot might be wearing off.

- LaRoche need to rest. Play Tyler Moore

- Missing Desmond and Morse

- Espinosa sometimes makes bad decisions (caught stealing last night in the 9th when down by two)

- Even with good pitching, they won't win if they score only two runs.

- Time for a reboot.

Good heavens! Yes, that's me. Quoted...wow?!?

But, yes, I think it's better to be cautious with Strassburg, and even good to follow a team that has the ethics to think of Strassburg's health.

In that thread, I've been tempted to just post: "Larry Brown: George Allen run his knees off to make SB 7"

Nats just won their 86th game today...came back against the Marlins. Why is 86 wins significant? That's the most any Washington baseball team won in my lifetime...1969 Senators.

2012 Nats now have 93 wins, 60 losses. The best baseball teams in Washington history, the 1924, 1925, and 1933 teams, won 92, 96, and 99 games in a 154 game season.

Gio Gonzalez has won 20 games...first time a Washington pitcher has won 20 since Bob Porterfield in about 1952 -- the year that Sammy Baugh retired.

This is fun!

Best record in the NL. That would have won a pennant before 1968.

Somewhere, Clark Griffith is smiling, along with Walter Johnson and Bucky Harris, and many others.
