    So much for that experiment

    @221 I think the bravest are going to need luck in the post season, no matter what. I seriously feel like beyond Huddy and maybe Sheets and doubly maybe Hanson, a coin toss gives us the best odds.

    At this point I’d rather be Wild Card than division winners just because it would give us a greater chance to win SOMETHING in the playoffs. How’s that for cynical?

    #228 That makes a depressingly large amount of sense.

    Wow, I kinda hate Davey Johnson now:

    “They’ve really been playing well,” Nationals manager Davey Johnson said. “I think they had a seven-game winning streak that was just stopped. They had been playing the best in the division. To win the first two and then get a split out of here, if I were them, I’d feel deflated. You want to pick up some ground when you’re playing well. They swung the bats really good this series, but so did we. We actually should’ve taken three out of four.”

    Looks like Davey Johnson is getting a big head. Lets see what the standings are at the end of the year. Talk is cheap.

    Boy, you could clearly see from the first inning that lady luck was not going to be on the Brave’s site today. The first two games, the bounces went our way, the last two games, all of the bounces went the Nats’ way. I mean, you kinda create your own luck when a picther can hit his spots where the fielders can get to it if it’s hit.

    JJ’s going down when we get whom ever we get at the trade deadline. With JJ, I think it is both pitching mechs and psychological state. By now he should have enough experience in the Biggs to be stronger mentally than he demonstrates. If he can’t get that part of his game back, he’ll serve the rest of his time in the MiLB rather than the MLB.

    But whatever his problems are, the Braves cannot afford to fix it up here unless they just want to conceed a playoffs birth — which, as this team rolls, is a streaky .500 team until we settle those 4th and 5th starters that seem to be winning streak killers.

    MLBTR says the Braves are favorites for now for Dempster. What’s the most you would give up for him? For me, it’s Mike Minor.

    Bubdylan Says:

    We’re almost certainly getting Dempster. I could NOT be more excited.


    There’s your goshdang playoff rotation. With the offense and Craig Kimbrel, this team could do some damage.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Rumors say Delgado. I will go from very happy to very, VERY pissed if we just gave up our very best pitching prospect for a few months of Dempster.
