Nats shit the bed
Posted on July 26, 2016
Well tonight’s game in Cleveland will go down as one of the WORST games in Nats’ history. Things started out very well. Trea Turner in the lead off spot drew a walk, Harper’s hitting moved him to third, and Murphy’s hit made it 2-0. Gio decided he needed a little drama, so a passed ball and base hit made it 2-2. Some good batting by the boys made it 4-2, then the Buffalo made it 5-2 with a solo homer. One would think that would be enough, but NOOOOOOOOOO! Our glorious bullpen decided “you know what? Fuck it, let’s burn this bitch down.”
I don’t know what has gotten into our pen lately, but for them to let a 5-2 lead become a 6-6 tie in the 9th with Pap on the mound is a fucking disgrace. Perez served up the go ahead run, so the blame is on him too. Now that Chapman has gone to the Cubs, I can see the Nats, if they make it into post season, getting swept by the Cubs in either the NLDS or the NLCS. Guess all of us in Nats nation had better lay in a supply of booze for this fall. We’re going to need it.
