Tonight has made the ignore feature easy to put into use.

So you're fine just watching us get swept? Any negative comments and you just block it out? I couldn't do that
There's a difference in negative comments and what some people are doing.

But I've said it forever and I'll continue to say it. You can build a team to be pretty much guarateed to make the tournament. There are no guarantees once you make the tournament. Sample sizes are too small.

1) They under-prepared for the Nats. They asked Verlander what he thought of the hitters in one of the pregame conferences and he kind of laughed that he hadn't done his homework yet. At the time I thought he was kidding with the media because everyone knows he's so anal about preparation. I think he was serious. JV's also made some off-hand comments coming off that short-rest start that makes me think he's exhausted.

2) That rainout in NY ****ed with them. This team wasn't really able to get it together beforehand and now they are just spent. I know everyone's made a big deal about the Nationals long rest, but the team they play usually doesn't go 4 straight either.

3) We really, really needed to split the first run at home. I expected a Cole win and a JV loss, but this is pretty much worst case. Grienke has experience with the Nats and can hopefully handle his business with the extra perk of getting to hit. The bullpen game is an absolute must win now. Cole and JV don't need to think about anything else, no extra work at all, until their next scheduled starts.

Hate to us on this side of the misery of sports thus far: the better team doesn't always win. The series is not over. But something drastic will have to change on both sides for us to get back into it and have a chance. This mojo and momentum Washington has found in October will have to subside, and whatever ALCS hangover or funk we're in has to completely go away. Can't be one or the other, will have to be both once you're down 0-2. Improbable, but not impossible. I'm with them til the end.


I'm a 7 game series the better team always wins. What you did in April and May means nothing in October.


Agree to disagree.


In a 7 game series the best team always wins? Lol no.


What if they beat you by 9+ in a 7 game series?

The Nats are better than the Astros. Just accept it.

Man - and we can't buy a 2-out RBI.

Well, can we please get out of this inning and get the offense up there?

It all started when those SOB's didn't hustle yesterday. It was obvious they felt superior and didn't need to hustle.

I do agree - so much can go wrong in the postseason - you just gotta get there and see what happens.

This is about the time of year I sometimes wish I did. Not playoffs yet, but definitely in the grind.

It's a simple game. You throw the ball, you catch the ball, you hit the ball.

They have done all three better than us

All the meltdown and, as a Nats fan, I'm worried if our bullpen can survive the next six outs. We used the best of the pen last night. I've witnessed plenty of meltdowns in 8 and 9.

I wouldn't call it under preparing

They needed to be focused on the Yankees.

I seriously think getting pushed to 5 games then 6 games in the two previous series is taking its toll.

Innings are racking up, guys are making mental errors, and focus is not there.

Remember when the 'Stros destroyed their opponents by double-digits on a regular basis this season? I remember.

This is almost a troll post. You're worried about being up 9 in a WS game 2?
