Gratuitous Nats Posting (TM) - Countdown Division


Hookay, let's go ahead and kick this thing off in earnest. As all the baseball world knows, the '62 Mets lost 120 games. Two games past the All-Star Break and the Nats have already rung up 63 dings this season.

My math isn't all that good, but I'm pretty sure that means we only need 58 more losses the rest of the year to break the record. Think we can do it?

GO, NATS!!!***

***I say this tongue-in-cheek. Of course, I'm going to stick with the team regardless of what happens. And a few years down the road when we get competitive and suddenly everyone is a Nats fan? I shall sneer in contempt at such summer soldiers and sunshine patriots.

That is the mark of a true fan.

The Tampa Bay Rays (I guess Devil Rays was too intense for someone - it is a fish people) can be in first place, and the games will be mostly empty.

Unless the Reds or NY come to town.

Now Cubs fans are legendary. They can be in last place, and get 25,000 people to come to the park on a Tuesday afternoon.

Of course the Nats are beating the Cubs even as I write this.
