Rage Against the Dying of the Light

It feels like the baseball world is already making arrangements for the Nationals funeral. They're planning to cremate Chad Cordero's hat and sprinkle the ashes on the outfield fence. I'd like to point out that this team is still ten games above .500 and that we're still in the fight. You have to win games early on in the season to have a cushion for when the inevitable slump happens. The Nationals did that and now that's going to save their collective asses.

Hopefully with the pressure off the team can regroup and remember what it took to take the division lead in the first place. There are some teams that just play better from behind and I think this is one of them. It's time to get a chip on our shoulder and start knocking heads.

There's a hell of a lot of baseball left and I'm not ready to write this team off.
