Oh Well…

BaseballSigh.

I came into this season and this series with the same low expectations.  So 2016 wasn’t as gut-wrenching as 2012.  And since Dusty didn’t make any obvious mistakes (expect for keeping Danny in the lineup), it wasn’t as infuriating as 2014 (when Matt went brain dead).

Still, the Nats should have won this series.  Even with season-ending injuries to Stras and Ramos.  Even playing a shortstop in center field.  Even with Bryce having the worst follow-up season of any MVP in history.  They still had this series won…until they didn’t.

At critical times – and especially in the last three innings last evening – their big guns didn’t come through.  They didn’t score enough runs to give Max any cushion on a night he was pitching well. They didn’t…

Oh, well.  Baseball is meant to break your heart.

More to come…

  1. Gene and I read your blog today with great sympathy. His long-time team has been the Atlanta Braves. Your words described perfectly his feeling, not just now, but all season long. Sorry for your loss, but thank you for the words to express baseball mourning. Jean
