Nats Lose Again

On Monday night, the fella in front of me said, “Hey, if you can’t snap a losing streak against the Rockies, who can you count on to help you out?” as if beating the hapless Rockies would be easy as pie. I mean, sure, we sent Armas to the mound on Monday, and he’s as hardy a small kitten, so I didn’t expect us to win that game, but with Livan and Patterson coming back-to-back, I figured we’d take the series and break that slump. It appears, however, that Livan is threatening surgery in the near future, which would likely derail our best pitcher for two to three months, possibly the rest of the season.

Of course, it’s not all bad news for the Nats, they’ve sent Wil Cordero packing, hopefully to a land far far away, like Cleveland. In his place arrives Kenny Kelly, late of the Reds, and of course, with roster moves come speculation of what other moves Jim Bowden might be making.

The Astros come to town today, 13 games back of the Cardinals in the NL Central, but still above .500 and 7-3 in their last 10 games. Here’s hoping we don’t get swept.
