This team can't hit, this game is over and the series is over going to DC down 0-2

That swing may be the series.



Weird but I agree. Things are catching up with us.
Face it, we were lucky to get past the Yankees.

Still, it isn't fun seeing us get our pants pulled down and spanked on the big stage.

Wonder if going hard for home field ****ed us. Our guys have no pep



Huh
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

We just can't get the clutch hit. So disappointing. We're so much better than this team.
Honestly, when they flashed up there we are batting .179 with RISP in the postseason, that makes it extremely impressive we are even here.

And, this game's not over. At any moment just a couple of those hits fall and this game is flipped on it's head.

Great time for our two best pitchers to step on their d****.




Game 1, you can say on Cole. Game 2 is not on Verlander - Game 2 is squarely on the offense. Especially in the bottom of that 6th inning.


Whole team is ****ting the bed together. It's a fine line. Not far off but just enough to land in the bed

Staring at blue. I'll say it again. These have been the tightest zones all season.


And our offense can't take advantage.

That out trying to steal 3rd in the first inning is looming large too.

We're really not. We rely on homeruns against crappy pitchers.

The Nats has a 2005 Astros kind of start to their series and have had the best record in all games since. They hit to all fields and don't rely on one outcome.


Yep, it's a K, a rocket right at someone for an easy out, or the rare homerun.

Are you ****ing kidding me?

A guy batting .080 who literally can't come close to hitting anything other than a fastball.

What an absolute atrocious pitch by Verlander. Inexcusable.


He's getting complacent and lazy...take his insane ego down a few notches and it's probably a 0 run game tonight


Your worst take yet

And that's saying something

I haven't seen what the Nats average with RISP this post season.

Man, just so disappointing that we can't find grass with guys on the past 3 weeks.

At some point you have to realize it's not about finding grass and luck and all that. Our plate approach is not good while they sit there and hit singles to opposite fields and actually swing at meatballs early in the counts.

Alright. This is really dangerous territory.

I'm still so mad at this offense.

I think the poor hitting starts to impact other parts of your game. Pitchers feel like they need to be perfect, routine plays in the field are more pressurized.

Well, if we played in the regular season like we play in the postseason we wouldn't even sniff the wildcard game.
