Oh, the changes I make (or made FOR me...lol)

     Well, at least this time it's only been 2 months since I was here last...LMAOTongue out
     Anyway, to my point of this writing. It's to give the "rundown" of where else I'm at for sports writing.
     The WordPress blog (with the same title as this one) is http://dcsportsnut.wordpress.com. My MLBlogs.com Nationals-oriented blog is still http://go-nasty-nats.mlblogs.com, but you can also go to http://mlblogsgonastynats.wordpress
.com
to look it up as well.
     (And seeing how the Nats are on a 3-game win streak, I just might be writing more on there...Wink)
     So there you have it. Until the next time I decide to write here...Laughing...adios!!

Does 'disgusted' sum up Nats fans' feelings now?

     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.Embarassed
     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.)Frown
     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.Yell
     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.Tongue out 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.Cool That's all.

Wow, I've been away THAT long?

     I just now realized, it's been almost 3 months since I last wrote a blog here. Damn, I'm slipping...Embarassed
     Anyway, to make up for lost time, here goes.
     Now that the Redskins have basically screwed themselves out of the playoff picture...and let's face it, how do you let Brett Favre run out the clock??...it looks now as though they'll be playing the spoiler role these next 5 weeks. (Or not.) Why do we go through this year after fricking year?Yell I ask you, WHY??
     I mean, between the Skins and Wizards, it's nothing short of a miracle I still have my sanity. But at least as far as the Wizards go, there's some sense of hope...and his name is John Wall.Surprised (That is, when he can get on the floor.) It's his team now, not Gilbert Arenas'. Maybe in another 2 years we'll talk contender...maybe.
     As concerns the Nationals: now that Adam Dunn's walked, WHO is our (long-term) 1B? At least they've done the right thing, and protected Chris Marrero from next week's Rule 5 Draft by putting him the 40-man roster. But while we wait and see if he can make it to Syracuse to start next season (or go back to Harrisburg), who do we get to man 1B in the meantime?Undecided Big names, Mike Rizzo, big names...starting pitching and a first baseman, that's what we need!!!
     So, lo and behold, that leaves the Capitals to talk about.
     If this team does NOT win a Stanley Cup...and this is just my view...then this season (like last season) is a complete failure. There's way too much talent on the Caps to go down the tubes in the 1st round (again!!). Totally unacceptible, to be honest.Frown
     So that covers it. I should make mention of another place to showcase my writing...find it at www.greatjake1958.wordpress.com (if you can...lol). I'll cover sports on there once in awhile; it's mainly for other topics.
     I'm done now...LMAO
