On the flipside of the coin, how do the Nationals ever win ballgames? Granted their best hitter in Nick Johnson isn't playing today, but come on. The Nats are the only team on which Jamey Carroll could be considered an offensive upgrade at shortstop. I mean, 5-9 they just have nothing going on there, yet the machine just keeps on rolling, winning one-run games at a historical pace. It helps when they face useless never-will-bes like Kaz Ishii.
For those of you who are around to watch the game today, I hope you have all had a happy holiday and a well-deserved day off from work. Cheers, and let's go Mets!
