Gratuitous Ex-Nats Posting (TM)

Dodgers Hat.jpg

Robbo has decided early that he's going to be rooting for the Dodgers to win the Series this year.

Why is this? Because the Nats just handed long-time infielder Ronnie Belliard over to them. We at Orgle Manor have always liked Ronnie, not just because he's a pretty good ball player but also because he's a good guy. And after he's faithfully stuck it out with the Nats through almost three progressively more horrible seasons, it's nice to see him now in a position where he has a shot at the championship.

The only problem here is that the Nats face the Dodgers the 4th week of September. We've got 26 games left in the season and are within 14 of racking up our second triple-digit loss tally. Every game is going to count, and it would be a terrible thing if we cracked that century mark at the hands of Los Angeles. I suppose one can only hope that they will already have secured their division by then and can afford to take the hits.

I was astonished to learn today that the Nats are not yet mathematically eliminated from the Wild Card race. Admittedly, they'd have to win all but three of their remaining games...and the Rockies would have to lose ALL of theirs...and there'd have to be a lot of help from the other teams...but it COULD happen.

Ryan Church is a former Nat who is playing for the Braves. So I'll cheer for the Braves. But of course, I'd be cheering for the Braves anyway.

My last Nats game of the year is Friday night vs the Fish. You can be sure I'll be cheering hard for the Nats that night!
