Unbelievable: Nats 4, Braves 2

Write your own recap if you'd like. I'm so sick of this. I just wish, for once, someone would man up and do something.

At this point, I'd rather just lose the rest of our games than keep this crap up. Lose 2 out of 3 at home against the Nationals? Lose a 7 game lead in the NL East, and now (probably) trail by 3? I tried to keep the faith. I really did. But this is really one of the last straws, and we don't have time to waste any more games. We have an 11-day, 9-game road trip coming up, which is arguably our biggest trip in the last 5 years, and we're playing like this. In Bobby Cox's final season. That just blows my mind.

10 hits, 3 walks, 2 runs.

1-for-11 with RISP.

Pretty much sums up the Braves for the last few weeks.

Mike Minor was pretty solid, except for the grand slam he gave up in the 2nd. He gutted through five innings and struck out six. Both Martin Prado and Matt Diaz had solid days at the plate, but their efforts weren't enough to bring the Braves a win. One positive note was the bullpen. Moylan, Saito, Venters and Kimbrel all looked great, and I don't think there's any doubt about how great they've been since Day One.

Anyways, we now have 48 hours to think about this, and then we play the Mets in New York. I don't think I'll be watching. If you do, well, props to you for sticking with this team.
