Yup, after that comeback against Kimbrel in the first game yesterday, it almost looks like the Nats are going to run the table. They have that look about them. As I type that, I realize that the logic of that is not real sound but I would love it for the Braves to sack up and stop this nonsense. Oh, and please Bucs, end another curse this year and manage to at least split with the Pucking Fadres!

Kudos to you . . . you refused to put the fork in the Nats when just about everyone else had written them off (myself included).

6 down in the lost column (for Bucs) with 11 to go. Not buying it, unless you all think the Reds are sweeping the Bucs.

ZM -
We respectfully disagree.

Sincerely,
2011 Boston Red Sox (9 game lead on 9/4/11)
2011 Atlanta Braves (8.5 game lead on 9/6/11)

And, oh yeah, my paranoid index is at an all-time high. :lol:
