Robbo Is Currently Listening To.....

Yes, following on last night's defeat of the Rockies, the Nats are back to playing better than .500 ball.

We're three for four on this home stand, and although as our Maximum Leader notes, the Brewers rang up 10 runs in the first inning of yesterday's loss, nevertheless the Nats rallied back and damn near beat them for the sweep of that series, anyway. And they certainly didn't play last night like a team that was still licking its wounds from the day before.

We're half a game behind Atlanta for third in what's probably the toughest division in all of MLB, and four of our six losses have come at the hands of The Team Who Shall Not Be Named, who are strong contenders to go to the Series again.

At what point are folks going to start giving us some credit for the changes we've made and the evident results? (And didn't I say that Ian Desmond ought to get the starting SS slot? Why, yes I did.) At what point do the Nat'nals jokes stop?

Soon, hopefully, although I think the Nats are going to have to do something pretty durn spectacular to change their image in the eyes of all but their most loyal fans.

One of which, I hope I have proven myself to be.

I'm switching from Nats jokes to Red Sox jokes. Looks like Big Papi is now Big Popup.

I am impressed with how the Nats have been playing by the by over the past week. I should have mentioned that in the drubbing of Sunday that they did battle back.

I wonder what factor the newness of the season figures into this. We all know that the first few months of the season tends to favor pitching over hitting. Is it that the hitters we've been seeing haven't figured us out yet?

Hey, they can feel free to beat up on as many non-Padre NL West teams as they want.
