Nats have the plate discipline of T-Ball players

I don't have the numbers in front of me, but the reason we can't score runs is because we swing at everything! We don't work the count and make the pitchers throw bad pitches. Then the Nats could get a good pitch to hit and stop leaving guys on base!

The Mets made Esteban Loaiza throw 99 pitches through four innings last night. And it's not like the Mets got that many hits! They just worked the count and fouled off pitches. And any NORMAL manager would have pulled Loaiza after four innings.

Just like that, the Mets were into the bullpen! And that's why they won. And that's why we didn't win.
