Just got home... what the hell is going on? Hopefully the 8th inning will be our magic inning like Tuesday night. 

Nobody in this lineup is capable of hitting the baseball.

This brutal, Kershaw starts game 2. This is what I mean by running into team that can pitch, too, but can also hit.  Just being able to pitch isn't good enough, this franchise's identity is doing only half their homework and expecting a passing grade

Our offensive numbers in the regular season are good.

 

But those same guys just poop the bed in October.

 

Not sure what can be done. Just follow the Caps formula: keep getting there and hope one year the stars align and you can win it.

We've hit well all season long against good pitchers. This team is just so damn streaky when it comes to hitting or not hitting, especially when the stakes are higher.

Also I'm pretty sure Ryu is pitching tomorrow. Not that that's much better for us, at this point he's probably better than Kershaw.

Their trash contact drops.

There are just too many weak spots on this roster to beat a team like LA. Championship teams don't start Asdrubal Cabrera or Howie Kendrick or have Fernando freaking Rodney coming out of the pen.

In theory, you're right.  But weird **** happens so much in baseball and several World Series winners have had some sketchy ass guys in their line up and BP.

WHy do we only have one lefty in our bullpen against a lefty heavy lineup?

 

Because genetically there are more right-handed people then left-handed people in the world. :P

They've been doing this in October since they got here.  I agree with hoping the dam finally breaks on this team, part of me hoped that was last tuesday, but now I see that wasn't only monkey they needed to get off their back.  This is so between the ears, when's the last time they gave a huge free agent contract to a hitter like they do star pitchers?  Werth?  The priority with this team is obvious, they invest in pitching and try to maximize the talent they have on hitting.

The Nationals scored more combined runs (total number of runs in each series) than their opponent in both the 2016 and 2017 NLDS.

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.
