***2019 Miracle Nationals WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS***

Recommended Posts

"Where would we be without Gerardo Parra" is not a phrase I would have thought would be uttered by Nats fans on numerous occasions in 2019.

I don't follow the Nats like the other DC teams... So hearing Rizzo say his view on the team hasn't changed, and seeing the last couple of posts in this thread, makes me kind of excited to see how the next few weeks will play out.

Doolittle isn't available tomorrow now. Kinda why you don't trot him out there in a 4 run game last night. Davey being Deavey...

 

But hey, 2 outta 3 gets the job done. 6 behind the Phillies now...

I mean technically there is still a lot of baseball left to play, but the significant flaws that exist within the team just make it hard for me to think they can make anything out of this season.

The Dodgers were 16-25 last year and then won 90 games. Baseball is so funky that anything can happen.  The other teams could play .500 the rest of the year and maybe 90 wins isn't needed.  The key is which wins we get.

need to win this series against cubs

 

 

 

I came into the Mets series thinking just go 3-3 against them and the Cubs. So we just need to take 1 against the Cubs to accomplish that. Winning the series with Doolittle unavailable today and Hellickson on the mound on Sunday will be tough. Just don't get swept...

 

The winning can start next week against the Mets and Marlins.

And then I see what Davey penciled in as his lineup:

 

Turner-SS

Robles-RF

Rendon-3B

Kendrick-1B

Soto-LF

Suzuki-C

Dozier-2B

Taylor-CF

Scherzer-SP

 

WTF

 

You finally have an almost healthy line-up, and you rest Eaton, move Robles to RF and mess him up, and insert strikeout machine MAT in CF??????

I don't know if Eaton's sat yet this season, Popeman.  He was pulled late in a double switch yesterday.  He might just need a day.

 

Edit: He's started 41 of the Nats' 43 games this season.

Popeman has a severe case of “everything Davey does it wrong-itis.”  :ols:

 

Guys get days off. Bench players get starts. Such is life and baseball.

Same day Trea comes back, Robles gets hit in the wrist. Now out of the game.

MAT predetermined to swing 3-2 no matter what. That pitch was NEVER a strike, and had no chance to be a strike. It was 84 MPH and he swung before the ball got close to the plate.
