I was going to write basically this exact post, but Beyond the Boxscore beat me to it. The bottom line: after the Nationals' most recent skid, there's basically zero chance that the Nationals do not end up with the worst record in baseball in 2009. Bryce Harper, welcome to DC. Congratulations, ScatsTown. We've still got nowhere to go but up.
Now for the next question: can this team avoid three in a row? We'll see, but with young pitchers dropping like flies (or fading like like McCain in October), where does this team get substantial improvement? I guess we can hope for some random fluctuation. Can we get a Go Randomness! graphic on the big scoreboard?
