Game 60: Another Curly W!

One of the reasons you should be reading Federal Baseball is that they do excellent game recap posts.

Steven at FJB thinks the worst is over, and I think he's right. It's taken way too long for the Nationals to get back to "competent", but now that they've reached that level, there's no reason they can't move on to the next one: Perennial contender. The NL East isn't the grinding, expensive high-stakes trench warfare scene that the AL East is, thanks to the remarkable ineptitude and bad luck of the Braves and Mets; with the talent coming up from the farm over the next year or two, there's no reason the Nationals can't be a force to be reckoned with. Kudos to Mike Rizzo for righting the S.S. Nationals and getting it steaming forward on a course to success!

I am remiss in not mentioning Nationals Farm Authority's excellent coverage of this year's draft. Start here and keep reading.

Pretty slim pickings today, but the last game of the Pirates series is tonight, with Livan squaring off against Zach Duke. See you on the flip side.
