Maybe These Guys Aren’t as Bad….


Washington Nationals Game

Originally uploaded by acaben.

Swept the Marlins. Took Three of Four from the Braves. Our offense actually produced some runs, and our bullpen actually stopped the other guys from doing the same. The bullpen hasn’t given up a run since Tuesday. 10 straight innings from the the bullpen without an earned run. Our bullpen actually only gave up ONE run in the series against the Braves. That’s an ERA of 0.56, collectively for the series, which is pretty damned outstanding for a team that’s in dead last in the NL East, and for the team with the 2nd to worst record in the Majors.

There’s potential here, maybe these guys aren’t all that awful…

    I was there last night. That 5th inning was pretty great!

    If Cordero returns to form, the bullpen has a chance to be REALLY good. If the starters get healthy, might this team actually be only a couple of additions (Nick Johnson, a slugger to be named later) away from (gulp!) contention?

    They’re not so bad, but they could be even better…

    Have you seen: http://www.thiscouldbetheyear.net

    It’s an open letter to Nats owner Ted Lerner, and it looks intriguing….

    And yes, I’m guilty of posting this link to a bunch of different Nats blogs. But i read it a few days ago, and it seems like a proposal that’s worth supporting.

    And no, this isn’t guerrila marketing by the Nats or anyone else who could make a buck off this. I’m just a fan who stumbled on what looks like a good idea.

    Thanks for whatever you can do to talk this up.
