Everyday I Have The Blues

'Stros 6, Nats 3

I'm tired. I'm so very tired of watching the Nats play poorly. If it's not poor pitching, it's poor defense. And if it's not a lack of offense, it's a lack of clutch offense. Last night, it was a little bit of everything.

Drese couldn't get the ball anywhere near where he wanted. The Nats botched a rundown in the sixth, when the ball clanked off Vinny's glove. Their bats were dead, except for a pair of relatively meaningless homers from Preston and Guillen.

If you want more - read St. Barry; I don't have anything constructive to say.

Vidro did leave us with this quote, though. "We still have a chance. ... I'm never going to quit. This is a game you play every day, and you got to come back the next day and try to do it. We're only three games out, and we still got a month and a half to go. If you quit now, you don't love this game."

We've got to take at least two games from Colorado this weekend and do it in a convincing fashion. Otherwise, our hopes dim to nearly nothing.

Not sure what hurts more about the wildcard suddenly doing so poorly, or Houston suddenly doing so well.
