What can we say? Absolutely nothing. Flood the comments with your feelings.
I haven't been this depressed for 16 years (Jeffrey Meyer robbery in game 6 of ALCS; O's vs. Yanks).
I love ya' Nats but you guys can lose a ball game in spectacularly dramatic fashion... Stunned... #satitude - so true! Now what do I do with these rally towels??? (@dbomb1050)
It was like watching your football team jump out to a 17-0 first quarter lead and then play prevent defense the rest of the game, only to lose 21-20.
You could see it coming all the while, but there wasn't sweet diddley you could do about it.
Sorry guys I jinxed it. I got back from the opera and heard they were up by 2 in the 9th so I turned on the TV just in time to see the Cards score 4 runs.
YOU GOTTA CRAWL BEFORE YOU CAN WALK AND SOMETIMES YOU FALL DOWN LEARNING HOW TO WALK.
THIS PROCESS WAS INEVITABLE!
THE RED BIRDS WAS THE WORSE TEAM WE COULD HAVE FACED.
THEM BEING DEFENDING CHAMPS AND A VETERAN, EXPERIENCED PLAYOFF CLUB THEY DID EXACTLY WHAT THEY KNOW HOW TO DO.
AND THAT WAS PULL OUT A WIN IN A DO OR DIE SITUATION.
GREAT JOB THIS YEAR NATIONALS.
I'M PROUD OF THE YEAR WE HAD.
WE OVERACHIEVED AND PUT THE BASEBALL WORLD ON NOTICE THAT WE ARE COMING AND YA'LL BAMMAS BETTER BE READY BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT ANY FUCKING EXCUSES.
IN THE WORDS OF MY MAN TANNER FROM THE '76 VERSION OF THE BAD NEWS BEARS "HEY ST. LOUIS YOU CAN TAKE YOUR WINS IN FOOTBALL AND BASEBALL AND YOUR DRAFT PICKS AND SHOVE THEM STRAIGHT UP YOUR ASS."
NATITUDE FOR LIFE!
Awwww, poor nads!! Look @ it this way: there's always NEXT year...

And they still can't beat the phillies
Storen and Clip struggled the last month of the season as we finished 9-10. We were up on the Braves in a similar way earlier in the season and threw up on ourselves. Next year we will be more bloodthirsty and mash whoever want it. Esponisa has to cut his strikeouts down by at least 1/3... he is a hole in the lineup.
@Noodlez -- Very well said.

Looking forward to next year, when we send Strasburg to pitch Game 1. See what the poor team to face him will think knowing they have to face him twice in a series.
Gio needs to learn how to pitch when he's ahead. All the walks he gave up in the Cards series were torture to watch. Espinosa should have been sat down for game 5 - Davey messed up there. Davey messed up sending Jackson out for the 7th. Still scratching my head on that one - he tried to catch lightning twice (ala Zimmermann's relief appearance) and it backfired.
Guess you didn't get the expressed written consent of Major League Baseball, eh?
