Nats Cap Wet Weekend With Series Win

On Sunday, the Nationals endured when they most needed to. Relying on a pitcher making his 30th start and a lineup resting two of its top three hitters, the Nationals grabbed an early lead, persisted through another stultifying rain delay and cruised to a 7-2 victory against Florida. When they finally left Land Shark Stadium on Sunday evening, bound for another road series in Philadelphia, the Nationals were a tired team, but not a listless one.

I'll bet the Nats will have their first winning season before the Redskins have their next.

gilbertbp your right on target. What is amazing is the annual hype that seems to just be tagged to the Redskins and then when the obvious happens the management, the players, the media all come up with the same lame excuses.

Seeing that this is the NJ and I'm more of a Nats fan then anything else, although it would be nice, I'm glad the local sports talkies and the media in general have such low expectations of the Nats. If it all "plans out" 2010 could be a 85+ win season, hmmmm, I like dreaming!

This is sad 3 posts after a Nats win and game where Ian Desmond played 2B, Guz batted 3rd at went 3-5, and super sub Pete Orr went deep...must be football season in DC! :(

Yep - we got the underacheiving, overpaid, overexposed, overhyped, disjointed, trainwreck of a football team jammed down our throats for another five months. Like they deserve it.
