What will the Nationals' final record be?
Just watched the Orioles play the Washington Nationals on Friday night.
And know this Orioles fans: You don’t have it the worst. Not even close.
Puff out your chests and feel good about your old ballclub for a moment.
The Nats really do look as bad as advertised. Heading into Saturday, they are 21-50, that’s a .296 winning percentage. That’s under .300 ball, people.
The Nats are no longer on pace to challenge the 1962 New York Mets, who finished 40-120. But they are still within striking distance.
Some of you may not like Washington DC – you’ve mentioned that on occasion -- but you have to feel a little bad for the Nats’ fan base. I know I feel terrible for Manny Acta, the Nationals manager and one of the classiest men in a baseball uniform. He just doesn’t have a chance with this roster.
Empathy aside, we can still speculate on just how bad the Nats will be come September. I say they end up losing 112. Putting their record at a clean 50-112.
What’s your call?
