I'm spitting nails. This should not even be a game for the 2nd day in a row. Ugh.

How many times in the last two years have I seen our team with the bases loaded and no outs and we don't score a single run and the next inning the other team then proceeds to take over the game...wayyyy too many

Total disaster. Karstens falls apart and it's 7-3 Nats.

This is bad...

It's no longer a game. Karstens gets the 1st 2 outs, then gives up 4 runs and still doesn't get out of the inning.

I think all pitchers are head cases. Those who have the stuff and who trust their stuff by staying mentally tough are the successful pitchers.

Well, Karstens was due for a meltdown. Not exactly the series we were hoping for.

This happens far too much. Maybe we can beat Burnett around.

One question. Was is not obvious Karstens didn't have it tonight? Couldn't JR have pulled him out of the game before he gave up the last two or three runs?

That seems to be the question far too often, and i say yes.

Donny is pathetic. Can't we fake another injury with this guy?

Maybe we should've went for Dukes instead of Milledge, even with his record. They are close though. I'm not sure which one i like better so far.

I guess some of these guys don't want a permanent starting spot on a MLB team?

One positive out of this...at least it appears Doumit broke out of his slump...3 for 5 with a double and the late RBI to try to get them back in it.

I agree, but...

Only if the pitching continues to struggle as it did the last two games.

Honestly, Maholm and Morton pitched OK, but the pen stunk up the joint.

Run support has been enough to squeeze out a win lately, the Pen just needs to hold serve w/ the SP's.

The Offense seems to be ever so slowly coming into its own (and against good pitching will play so-so at best, naturally), but Pitching and Defense will be the key the rest of the way.
