Gratuitous Domestic Posting - "Baseball Been Berry, Berry Bad" Division


So the Nats finished up what has become the Road Trip from Hell last evening with their sixth straight loss, having been swept by both the Rockies and the Dodgers.

I was talking about this with the nine year old, thinking that perhaps it might be the perfect time to haul out one of those stock "Dad" parables about how in Life, like in baseball, one must just keep trying, no matter how bad things look at the moment. However, I think I lost my audience at "sixth straight loss" as her eyes went wide, her mouth swung open and she said, "What!!?? What's wrong with those guys??"

I seem to be making her a fan, but I'm not so sure I'm making her a better person.
