I've been in and out of the backcountry in amazing southeast Alaska for the last few days and haven't watched a Nationals game in a week or so. I'm barely able to check in, as even Internet access is a dicey proposition where I am.
So how amazed am I to click in and see that since I got on the plane at BWI last Saturday for the first leg of my trip that they haven't lost a game.
I obviously have few insights, but consider: the Scats have won seven in a row. The Pirates have lost seven in a row and the Royals have won just three of ten. And still, they are four and a half behind the next worst team in the league.
