Who Can Be Most Pessimistic, Day Two

All sports edition:

Dan Steinberg: Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.

Barry Svrluga: A crowd of 20,894 had hardly gathered at RFK Stadium by the time the Nationals trailed by four runs in the first, and there was little remaining to do but enjoy the evening, have a beer -- and discuss the days when this club might actually be good.

Wilbon: ...This news that Butler is going to miss the playoffs because of a fracture to his right hand is a killer. It's not just a season-ending injury; it's season-ruining in all probability.

Goff: A huge, huge missed opportunity for United.

Bullets Forever: This was an awful loss, and it's simply inexcusable at this time of year.

Capitol Punishment: First, let's look at the good. OK, now that we've done that, let's look at what went wrong.

Federal Baseball: ...Literally the only time the Nats were in tonight's game was prior to the game's first pitch.

The WashTimes's John Mitchell: If last night's game was any indicator, the Washington Wizards are in trouble.

[Note: Did anyone see Ernie G on Wash Post Live last night? Why did he say the Wiz would most likely play Toronto or Miami in the first round? Only if they finish third, or, more likely, sixth, right? Why wouldn't they be just as likely to finish fourth in the East and face Chicago or Cleveland? Have they already conceded that they'll be sixth?]

SLAMOnline: Eddie Jordan, the pressure is on.

The WashTimes's Mark Zuckerman: The pitching problems were expected. So were the offensive struggles. The Washington Nationals, though, were not supposed to be fundamentally inept.

The Examiner's John Keim: After two games it's clear: the Nationals are struggling with their fundamentals.

The AP's Howard Fendrich: The Nationals, meanwhile, could take solace from this: No one got hurt.

D.C. Sports Blog: Things are bad so far, real bad ...

CBSSportsline's Eric Mack, after putting the Nats 30th in his power rankings: The easiest ranking to slot on the board.

Oleanders: This isn't a team made to play catch-up (or catch-me for that matter. I'm not sure what it's made for.)

Nationals Enquirer: 0-162 still a possiblity.

LOL, "no one got hurt."

That's my favorite.

Sigh, wish it could be said of the Wizards.

Still, I gotta say, I'm gonna be at tonight's game and I'm looking forward to it.

At least the Caps won...

How many games will it take for the Nats to match the Redskins win total for the season? Looking up at five wins seems like Mount Everest right now.

Can't comment on the Wizards, too painful.

I'm with you Matt. At least one team pulled one out last night. DC United really should have won their game though. Dang that hurts.

I was at the Wiz game in Charlotte last night and no matter what you read or what you saw on TV, it was much, much worse.

Unless I misread the score, somehow the Nats came from behind and won today. I was busy rolling my ankle during a run and watching Manchester United go against AC Roma though.
What a goal from Roma as I type this right after Manchester went even.
