      The home team fans are at home, these games no longer matter, and it’s probably better for the team to lose than it is to win.  It must be December in Washington.  Welcome to week 15!

      There are two camps for Redskins fans at this time of year.  Those that want to tank and those that want to win.  If this describes you, I want you to know something important. You’re wrong.  You should probably feel bad about it too, but that’s your business.  The right way to go about this, is simply to embrace the doublethink.  
       
      Before and after the game it’s perfectly reasonable to acknowledge that losing has its advantages.  It does and it is undeniable.  Afterall we could be talking about the difference between Chase Young being in a Redskins uniform, or not.  What we need for that to happen is simple.  Redskins lose out.  Giants beat the Dolphins and Redskins.  Dolphins beat the Bengals.  All of these things are perfectly reasonable outcomes.  We’re that close to having an elite pass rusher.   
       
      Before that happens, we have a game to play.  It is in this moment that we should embrace the other side of our demented doublethink.  While the game is being played, especially against a division opponent, fans should want their team to do well.  Assuming they have a soul and any decency.  There is just no way that I can root for the Eagles to beat the Redskins during a game.  If you are the type of fan that does this, I hope you find someone that can fix what has broken inside of you.   
       
      Pregame Prediction:  Redskins 23 – Eagles 30  
      More interesting game we are missing because we are still watching the Redskins:  Packers – Bears  
      Things I am snacking on:  Brownie.   
      Number of colons used:  Six.  (so far)  
       
      Check back for updates.  I’m going to wander around the room for a while and stretch my legs to get away from a certain well-known ESPN Eagle fan’s boring conversations that my ear phones aren’t blocking out entirely.

Rizzo may look to trade more/better prospects to get guys that aren't rentals.

 

Other than Luis Garcia and Carter Kieboom--who do we have? Tim Cate? international kids? I don't think we have the ammo for Vazquez.

Had to snap a pic of this T-shirt at a Metro stop this AM:

Yeah not Vazquez, Pirates won't move him. Gotta aim a bit lower, which I think is fine as long as Doolittle can get/stay healthy. Ideally someone mid-tier who has closer results this year, either a rental or one year remaining on their contract, who can serve as our setup guy and for spot saves to give Doo a night off. 

 

Re who we'd give up, Garcia and Kieboom are obviously our only top 100 guys but I'm sure there are other members of our farm system that are starting to get recognition but aren't on our radar yet. Just like Dunning and Luzardo weren't on any list when we traded them but they both turned out to be highly touted prospects. So, no clue who we'd end up parting with. But I wouldn't say we have no ammo to get a reliever.

I feel you, Riggo. I spend 8 hours a day watching my infant daughter while I wait for my student teaching placement to start in August and I have way too much time to lock into Nats stuff. Luckily, it's actually positive stuff these days.

Stras just pulled off the immaculate inning, striking out the side on 9 pitches

 

Don't remember him ever doing that before.

 

Bob just confirms. JZim had one. Max twice. Now Stras with his first

I thought Craig Stammen had one too, can't remember for sure.

Dozier has turned it around.   He's been awesome. 

 

Stras dealing.  Fun game.

There's no way I can see this situation ending well with Rojas coming up, but I'd love to be wrong.
