These games happen. Once a year they happen, but they happen. Nothing to see - move on.
The Nats could have moved 3-games over for the first time all year. That's a nice number but not a big one historically thanks to last years hot start (20-15 in mid-May). Now 6 games over. That's the big hurdle. The Nats haven't had that two series cushion since Sept 16th 2005. Kids in Kindergarten weren't even born yet! (At least in the old days when parents didn't hold back every child until they were 6 because of "developmental" reasons. Pretty soon we'll hold them back until puberty. That kid will rock JV baseball then get leagally drunk after the game.)
Next up is the Rockies. Can the Nats keep their heads above .500 until the All-Star break ? I'm thinking not (I like 1 of 3 going to the Nats) but if I were to have given you .500 at the All-Star break at the beginning of the year you would have been stupid not to take it. Then we can get into fun trade talk! Let's all pray for a good Marquis start tonight so the Nats can clear up that spot for Peacock!
