WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Forty eight hours in the Show Me State and the Nats didn't SHOW much. Losing two of three during a 162-game marathon, NO BIG DEAL. But getting run roughshod over to the tune of 26-12 by a playoff caliber team can't make Natitude Nation feel comfortable heading into baseball's OctoberFest.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: the Nats are a first round elimination team. Lack of experience in big games and an at-times shaky bullpen are my primary reasons.
Natitude Nation stop throwing darts through my picture! This has already been a special summer for you. 90 plus wins, possible Cy Young Award Winner, Strasburg back healthy, and Bryce Harper is a baller. When it's all said and done what more can you really ask?
Everything from here on out is gravy. Playoff baseball is not regular season baseball! Division winners get bounced all the time (see Philly from last year) and wild cards with two good pitchers can cause migraines.
Playoffs? Nat Nation, good luck and just enjoy the ride.
