That being said, the Nats bullpen has sucked this season, so there's that, too.


Letting Scherzer stay in the game until after he gets in trouble has been an issue since Martinez got here. For the most part Max and the pen have been good enough that this hasn't hurt the team.

As we head into the last weekend of the season with a series that means nothing I'm feeling grateful that MLB played this summer. Not the finish we hoped for but I'm sure glad they got a third of the season in. Not sure what I'm going to do October to March this year with everything shut down. Watch crap on Netflix, maybe read a book. Lots of people, particularly some of the Nats beat writers, wanted the season to be cancelled, how wrong were they?

The biggest thing to get the time down is the pitch clock.

The average time between pitches is 23 seconds, and the average nine-inning major-league game includes around 300 pitches. Simply reducing the time between pitches to 20 seconds would save fifteen minutes, three seconds at a time. Barely noticeable, except in totality. And it's dead time.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

I blame the batters as much as the pitchers, there is no need to step out of the box after every pitch. Stand in there and stay ready, then the umps can enforce the pitch clock.

Simple. Call a ball if the pitcher doesn't pitch within 20 seconds (exceptions for things like pickoff throws), and call a strike if the batter steps out. (Maybe you give them one time to get signals.)

Not a bad week for Nats -- eliminated the Mets from playoffs, and helped do same with Philly.

Unhappy about Nats season, but thankfully we wont have to listen to arrogant Phillies and Mets fans gloat. I'll root for The Marlins for sure.

I can't root against the Nats, but it should would be helpful if they lose these last two games. There are nine teams we could end up tied with depending on how we finish, Sure would be unfortunate to drop from the fifth overall pick to the tenth.
