These guys are better than us.  The only way we're going to win this series is if Strasburg goes on a mission for us in games 2 and 5 and somebody gives us some heroics at the plate.

You can't build your team around pitching and then walk seven guys. Just can't.

Such an awful bullpen. Very unreliable. Starters basically have to go 8 innings or full game.

doesn't matter what our pitching does if we can't score.  Rodney got burned, someone was going to get burned eventually for all of these walks.

Not being hyperbolic or sarcastic, Davey just isn't cut out to be a big time championship-winning manager. I've been nothing but disappointed and baffled by his decisions the entire time he's been in DC.

who cares if the starters go 8 if the offense sores 0.

I’m not typically one to second guess managerial decisions but Anibal Sanchez should have pitched the 7th and 8th at least, and absent that, Doolittle should absolutely have been in to face their lefties down 2-0.

Well we never finished building the pitching.  We need our starters to have HoF type performances to have a chance.

My god you guys are absurdly negative and that's coming from someone who is about as negative as it gets. Everyone calm down. The Nats got blanked in Game 1 in 2017 at home and still forced a game 5.

True, however you have a better chance winning if the score deferential is lower.

I hear ya.. this series is far from over. It's just extremely frustrating when it's literally the same story in every Nats postseason they've been in (bats go ice cold when we know we're capable of scoring)

Again, the Nats outscored the Dodgers in 2016, and the Cubs in 2017. This is a false narrative.

The frustration stems from how predictable and avoidable these issues are. It's one thing to be outplayed, it's another to just not show up to play at all, players and manger together.

 

Stras, Zim, Soto, and occasionally Tony are the only guys who've shown up to play in the post season so far.
