I didn't realize it's been 4 months between blog entries on here.
And judging from the way the Nationals' season has gone (so far), it may be another 4 months before I come back here again.
Christ, we should be 4-1 instead of the other way around. Quality starts out of everyone...until tonight.
Livan Hernandez did a good job tonight through 4 innings. Then came the bottom of the 5th. For some reason Livo couldn't get the 3rd out, until the Marlins tied the game up at 4 apiece.
(That's right, we had a fricking 4-run lead halfway through this game. The final was 7-4 Marlins.)
You know, I've seen this emm-effing horror movie the last 7 years--meaning since baseball came back to D.C.--and I for one am done being patient with ownership/the front office/Jim Riggleman/etc. about when the Nats are gonna turn the corner.
I've lived long enough to see two versions of the Senators leave D.C. (but only have memories of the "expansion" team of the '60s), and thus know what it was like to have no baseball for 33 YEARS!!! So I'm embracing the Nats for all it's worth.
But my patience has worn thin.
I made the prediction on my MLBlogs page (http://go-nasty-nats.mlblogs.com) that the Nats would finish 77-85, and no higher than 3rd place in the NL East. I am not going to be made a liar by this b.s. masquerading as Nationals baseball!!
It ain't happening.
Now for some shameless self-promotion. I have a WordPress blog devoted to sports, with the same name as this one.
Find it at http://dcsportsnut.wordpress.com, if you dare...lol
Hey, I need people to read the damn thing. That's all.
