Gratuitous Nats Posting (TM) - "KHAAAAAAN!!!!" Division

Okay, I laid off Gary yesterday about the Nats' victory Monday night, but he is perfectly free to beat me with the ugly stick over last evening's meeting.

Turned the game on in the 5th to find the Nats up 6-1, only to watch their bullpen melt faster than one of Algore's glaciers. Final result? Mets win 8-6.

Ol' Robbo was so frustrated that I had to put in a steady half hour of kicking the cat before I became even partially mollified.

Well, the rubber game of the set is this afternoon and we'll see how it goes. (Which reminds me that the MASN broadcasters are suddenly using that term an awful lot this year, while I don't recall them doing so before. Why is it that certain bits of baseball slang seem to drift in and out of fashion?)

At any event,

It drifted "back" into fashion for the Nats' broadcasters when the Nats started winning one of the first two games of the series... when you lose the first two, you don't get to call the third game the "rubber game."
